Currently : June 2019

It’s the (day after the…sigh) first Wednesday of the month, so it’s time to see what I’m currently up to!

Picking : Books to read for a couple of different upcoming book challenges. Book Challenge by Erin 11.0 released its categories on June 1, and my list for that one is slowly starting to take shape! I’m also going to participate in a challenge by abitaboutbooks on Instagram. It’s her #weread challenge and details can be found here!

Going : To work, home, Target, Walmart. That’s about as exciting as life is right now! 😉

Wishing : For a beach vacation! Fully funded, of course. Heck, since it’s wishing, let’s throw in a new wardrobe for the summer too!

I would not be sad to have this view again…

Wearing : Shorts and sandals! I’m not usually into either of those things because I’m self-conscious about my legs/feet/etc, but this year, I just decided to do what I wanted to, and if people don’t like it, meh on them!

Celebrating : Some fun activities coming up – going to see a live podcast show with my brother, Father’s Day, a luau with Charlotte’s former early intervention group, and WE’RE GOING TO SEE THE WIGGLES IN AUGUST!! Okay, that’s not June, and I have no reason to be so excited, but I totally am! Now watch Charlotte not enjoy it at all!

Currently : May 2019

It’s the first Wednesday of the month, so it’s time to see what I’m currently up to!

Currently

Admiring : Pretty spring dresses! I used to have a lot more dresses, but I think they shrunk after sitting in the closet and being unworn for a while…or at least that’s my story for now! Amazon has some cute floral dresses (too lazy to link) and I’ve seen some cute ones in Walmart, of all places. I may have to use a small portion of my monthly “fun money” to start to replenish my dress collection!

Playing : Too many time-wasting games on my phone! I’ve got to delete them if I want to accomplish anything and get my act together!!!

Borrowing : Approximately 17,000 streaming audiobooks and eBooks from the Nashville library! Okay, maybe it’s just 10, but it feels like all of them are available for checkout at the same time, then I have to make the harrowing choice of which one I’ll start first!

Remembering : The early days with Charlotte. Google Photos keeps showing me pictures from the year she was born, and man, what a trip down memory lane!

Finishing : The academic year at work! Phew!! It’s been a heck of a year, and I’m glad to have a little bit of breathing room during the summer sessions.

Currently : April 2019

It’s the (day after) the first Wednesday of the month, so it’s time to see what I’m currently up to!

Currently

Experiencing : A little bit of a mental funk. I don’t know what exactly is causing it – not enough sleep, water, vegetables, whatever – but I just feel kind of blah and unhappy and self-critical right now. How do you handle those low points in your own life?

Appreciating : My husband and parents for all they do to help Charlotte and me, and Koopa and Charlotte for just being adorable and fantastic (most of the time…ha!). Oh, and sunshine. Always, sunshine!

Wishlisting : Clothes on Amazon! I see so many cute recommendations from other bloggers, so I put them straight on my Amazon wishlist to buy…eventually…

Posting : Not very often, even though I want to post more! I always think that I should take some time on Saturday or Sunday and write out posts for the week, and then I don’t! I think it could be related to the mental funk I’m experiencing though, so maybe as that starts to lift, I’ll write more.

Considering : Mother’s Day Out programs for Charlotte! We are so fortunate and thankful that she can stay with my parents while we work, but my mom and I have discussed potentially having her start a program in the fall just to get her used to being around other children and in a little bit of a routine before she starts Pre-K (!) in Fall 2020!

Currently : March 2019

It’s the first Wednesday of the month (for real this time!), so it’s time to see what I’m currently up to!

Currently

Scheming : This is the hardest one to think of! I looked at some of the other linkup participants’ posts, and many of them were related to upcoming vacations. Since there’s no vacation or getaway on our radar, I’m stumped! Maybe I should say I’m scheming for something to scheme? Ha!

Reading : I’m juggling a couple of books right now! I’m listening to Thanks, Obama which was written by President Obama’s former speechwriter. I’m reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz on an app called Readercoin, which rewards you for reading or listening to books in its library. They also have an app called Podcoin that rewards you for listening to podcasts! If you decide to sign up for either of those, I’d love it if you used my referral code – Ambermei 🙂 You won’t get rich using either of these apps, but it’s nice to get a little reward for listening to podcasts or reading stuff I would have anyway!

Ahem, my commercial break is finished now.

Buying : Nothing too exciting. I made a list of everything we needed to get/pay for/do with our tax refund, so we will be “buying” exciting things like a teeth cleaning for Koopa. Okay, I might buy a new sticker book or two from Friday’s new Happy Planner release, but otherwise, it’s all business in our house!

Making : Lists and plans. So exciting, right? I’ve been on a kick my entire life lately to try to get my act together and quit procrastinating, automate some tasks, reach goals, etc, so I’ve been working on a family notebook, meal plans, and a writing schedule.

Accomplishing : Work things! The students are on Spring Break this week, so it’s been really quiet and slow in the library. This is always a good time to get those boring but necessary tasks accomplished.

Currently : February 2019

It’s the first Wednesday* of the month, so it’s time to see what I’m currently up to!

Currently

Anticipating : Date night next week! Char is staying with my parents, so I’m also excited about sleeping soundly! Ha!!

Going : To Target every week! It’s our Saturday routine to go to Target and walk around. I claim it’s because Char loves it so much, but we know that I have a little bit of influence in that also! 😉

Making : Nothing, although I did see a craft project on Leslie’s blog that looks really cute and simple enough for me to do! I also really want to make some banana bread and new earrings. I’m having a crafty moment, I guess!

Watching : Adam Ruins Everything! It’s a show where a guy named Adam (durrr) looks at things people believe or have always just assumed are true. I like that it’s funny, and he cites his sources (librarian nerd alert). My description doesn’t do it justice, so check it out on Hulu!

Wearing : Spring clothes today, winter clothes tomorrow. Nashville’s weather cannot make up its mind! The high today was 75 degrees, and it’s supposed to drop to 28 degrees overnight. Plus, we’ve had so much rain that some places are flooding! I guess I should add rain boots to my spring/winter ensembles!
