Currently…

by katherine on July 24, 2014

There’s this thing about blogging…where you can go weeks or even months without blogging and don’t feel a twinge of anything about it, but then you decide to write a post or two within a short period of time and all of a sudden the fire is reignited and you want to blog all the time the only problem is you don’t really have any cohesive thoughts to blog about.

That’s where I’m at right this very second. I’ve posted a few times within the last week or so and I don’t want to stop that momentum…if you can even call 3 posts within 2 weeks momentum. I have some things I want to blog about, like how I hate the word “feminism”, interview tips for working moms, my #MapleThread weekend and DUH Reese turning two!…I just don’t necessarily have the time to put complete posts together for any or all of those. I want to…I really really want to.

And I hope I find the time, but for now? Enter “currently”.

My girl Lindsey hosts this with another blogger each and every Thursday. And each week it’s a different set of prompts. A fun way to keep up with what’s going on in a don’t really need to think about it too much sort of way.

Lately we’ve been watching a lot of movies from RedBox. Or should I say, Andy has been watching them and I’ve been falling asleep during them. Oops. The other day I rented the Lego Movie, hearing great amazing things about it. Rylee ended up getting in trouble that evening so she was sent to bed early. I completely lost interest and fell asleep about 10 minutes into it only to wake up at the end to Andy looking at me saying “don’t ever listen to a movie recommendation from whoever told you that was a good movie again.” 

Still searching for a name for this little guy. Much like with Reese we’ve got a couple that we’re throwing around, but aren’t completely convinced yet that we’ve found the one. Last night we were watching the movie Rango and Andy said, “hey let’s name him Rango!” As Rylee enthusiastically agreed I looked at him like he was crazy and he just said, “what? after some of the suggestions you’ve had I don’t think it’s that bad.” 10-ish weeks to figure it out.

Missing city league softball. Totally random, I know. But a few of us here at work were talking about it this morning and I got to thinking about the summer that Andy & I put together a team and how much fun it was. I think I’ve convinced our “activities director” that we need to put a team together next summer.

Growing. I can just leave that one as is, right? Ha. If you ask the guy at my work, that’d be totally fine.  Actually, to be honest I’m growing anxious of the summer days dwindling down. I love having Andy home during the summer and the transition of him going back to work pretty much just sucks. I’m not ready for summer to be over, so I’m going to soak up the next 5-6 weeks as much as possible.

Ignoring the bridesmaid dress that’s hanging in my closet. No point in putting it on until I know just how big I’m going to be at my sisters wedding, right? Thank goodness it’s my mom doing the alterations on it so we don’t have to do it way in advance.

And just for fun we’ll wrap up this totally random post with some totally random photos off my phone, because why not?

Like this one of Reese who decided last Monday that she just had to wear a winter hat. Please to be noticing the fact that her ears are not covered…homegirl has to have easy access to those things.

Or this one from my walk on Tuesday morning down my road. Just Dante and me at 6:00 in the morning. The silence was deafening, the sunrise brilliant. And I can’t wait to do it again.

I am a sporadic blogger myself. Sometimes I have so many ideas and then two weeks later… nothing.

Or youngest daughter didn't get her middle name until the week before she was born. My husband and I just could not agree on anything that the other suggested, but one day he just threw it out there and it worked!

What a beautiful view!!

Whut. Andy wants to name your child Rango but didn't like the Lego Movie?!?! He's no Roger Ebert, that's all I'm sayin :) I love you. Boy names! Jacob, Harrison, Matthew, or Rob's favorite: Senator. Oh, Senator Rango Rice. There, your child is named. You're welcome. You can pay me in blackberries.
