Currently: September 16, 2015


{I read Jamie Morrow's Currently every week and I always want to hop on board because it seems like such a fun way to keep you guys updated on the stuff going on in my life so here I am.}


That my kids are happy with their new school, nothing worried me more about moving than the kids not adjusting well to a different school.


Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep, I received this book as part of a YA swap and so far I am really loving it.  Sadly with all the boxes left to unpack my reading time is limited right now.


When we moved I also cut the cable as I was paying a small fortune but never home to watch anything so now I am catching up on shows via Netflix and Shomi. Right now I am watching Royal Pains on Shomi, the first time I watched it I missed a whole bunch of episodes so I am really loving it right now.

Listening To...

Right now I am all about Audible, I find something very something about being read to.  It's fantastic for working out too.

Thinking About...

Right now I have the holidays on my mind, moving into a smaller place means that my sister is taking over holiday meals and that makes me a little sad.


Getting to do more crafts now that I have more time at home.


The weather would pick a temperature so that my migraines settle down.

Making Me Happy...

I am really enjoying getting to spend more time with my family, I think it's beneficial all around.
