Currently is a weekly link-up with the lovely ♥ Randalin of Harvesting Kale and I am her happy co-host each week. I hope that you can participate by writing your own Currently post (using the provided themes or your own) and please join us by linking up. What have you been loving, cleaning, working, creating, watching this week? Over here, we have been...
Loving that Etta has more and more to say. It seems that with every new word she masters, she becomes a less combustible woman. Communication is the shit. This week it's been all about 'more' and 'again'. And mastering 'again' means we are now singing the ABCs about forty five billion times an hour. I love it.
Cleaning not so much. Some weeks it's so easy to just keep the place tidy and clean as you go. This has not been one of those weeks. This week we've ordered food in more than once and there still seems to be every pot and pan and dish we own sitting in the sink and it's like, "You go away, all right dishes?" And they don't. ::Shrug, scowl, go read a book::
I have been Working a lot and it's been kind of a hot mess. Or I have been kind of a hot mess. I need to learn to roll with stuff a little better, get less emotionally invested in every little detail, apply my energy to the things that matter most, step outside myself. Easy to say all those things but really hard to do.
We have been Creating a dress up closet for our Project-Per-Month Project and it's super cute! I'm a little torn because part of me wants to go shopping for costume items asap to fill it up but the reasonable part of me knows it'd be better to start with what we have and to find those treasures one at a time over time. So we'll see if I can continue stopping myself from running to Target and stocking up on fairy wings and pirate vests for another day.
Watching Breaking Bad and Project Runway. All I have to say about Project Runway is that when Tim Gunn cries, I cry. Sooooo... I also watched Miley Cyrus gross the world out at the VMAs and like most moms, it made me determined to ensure Etta does not turn out crass and nasty. Do not stick your tongue out while pointing to your vagina in public, sweetheart. Liberated, empowered, bold, confident, and no public vagina touching, those are the goals. Anyways if you are a Breaking Bad fan and saw this week's episode and you saw the whole VMA debacle, then you will think this is funny too I bet (not a spoiler).
That was this week. Here are next week's themes:
growing, buying, earning, judging, embracing
