Yep! It's that time again...

...linking up with Farley over at Oh Boy Fourth Grade on another Currently (didn't I just write the last one?!?!)

So, here's my Currently (written just after 9 p.m. on a quiet Sunday evening.)

listening...every once in awhile I just like to hop all over clicking on whatever songs come up in the sidebar. I've found some pretty great songs that way. But, have to admit that, you still can't beat The Script in my book. I listen to them daily!

loving...I am really enjoying the quiet time at home on Saturdays and Sundays with my daughter staying at my Mum's on those days. It is really the only time that my hubby and I have to talk and just be together. We went out on a date this weekend! We went to a pub close to our house and, wow, they had really good food! I was totally expecting greasy fries and burgers but instead got a lovely Cobb salad and some to die for potato skins. Yum!

thinking...pretty much says it all. I am enjoying  living at my Mum's during the week. The time I get with her to talk, listen to her stories, and cuddle up on the couch is time I will never get again. I am very aware of this and grateful for. each. and. every. second.

wanting...I so want an iPad mini to use at school. I have all these great apps for assessment and note taking that are just too hard to use on my small phone. Have I gotten myself one? No! Instead, I went out and bought my daughter the laptop she needed for school. But (and you are my witnesses!) I am buying for me next!!!!!

needing...staying at Mum's has helped my running a lot, too. She has an old treadmill in the basement and I've been managing 2-3 runs a week on it. I am really loving being back into running. Now if only my body could love it as much as my soul does!

2 truths and a fib...

Yes, I was a synchro swimmer for all those years. Spent over 30 hours a week in the pool and competed at both local, provincial and national levels. For the most part, I enjoyed it. Although, looking back, I have to wonder what life would have been like if I hadn't spent most of my teen years underwater!

Yes, I met my dear hubby at a bar. He worked there. I danced there. 'Nuff said.

No, I do not enjoy driving on the highway. In fact, I don't enjoy driving at all. I don't drive. Never have. I take the bus everywhere or go with hubby in his car. Maybe one day...

And there you are...another Currently done.

  1. Loved your Currently! I would love the opportunity to be closer to my Mother - I'm sure you cherish the time you get to spend with yours! :)

  2. Hmm... trying to figure out where you're from! You spelled 'Mum' like we do here in Australia so you're not from the US, but there's no basements here. Maybe the UK?? :)
    Gotta love a glass of wine as a nightly ritual! My Dad's doctor actually recommended it as a de-stress tool and it worked absolute wonders... so I never feel guilty when I enjoy one! :)

    Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep!
