LISTENING: One of my dearest friends and fellow blogger, Michelle from Apples and ABCs, and I loved watching LOST together back in the day. She just introduced me to Revolution and I am OBSESSED already. It is gritty and violent and reminds me of The Hunger Games and Divergent/Insurgent. Dystopian Society- yes please…but just in fiction, not in reality!
LOVING: My sweet Penelope is growing up so quickly. She said her first CLEAR simple sentence tonight and I was able to document it on my iPhone. I asked her where our neighbors car was and she said, ” I don’t know!”. She even put both of her hands up in the air! SO CUTE! This milestone leads me to my THINKING part of the Currently…. I have always wanted to be a teacher and LOVE being one… but this year going to work each day is so much harder than last year. Being a working mom is hard and it makes it even harder to not have any other young working mom peer in my life to be a mentor. I know I am doing what is best for my family and that Penelope is well taken care of by family and friends who love and support her. I am blessed, but it is still hard…. a lovely paradox.
WANTING: a day-or 2- off. I feel sooo bogged down… maybe it is because it is October… I know next month will be easier with Thanksgiving week off…. Then I have a 3 week Winter Break… October is one of those months that drag…. I must persist! I had progress reports due today and conferences/report cards coming up so this will be a long month! This being said I am NEEDING more time!
Last, but not least…READING. I am in a fabulous book club and we met this week. I am currently reading/listening to via audible.com’s membership- the second book in the series of A Discovery of Witches called Shadow of Night. I am enjoying it!
I can’t wait to see what you all have to share on this month’s Currently. Hope you all are fairing well :)!
