Right now

Starting a new project ~ like a blog ~ as you’re heading into the holiday season is apparently not the most brilliant of moves on my part. I should know by now it’s impossible to really accomplish much of anything around then. And in addition to feeling like I was swallowed whole by the holidays, my son broke his arm while we were vacationing over Christmas (a whole drama which you can read about in parts on my other blog: Part 1Part 2Part 3), and well, life has been a bit of a whirlwind lately, and blogging has taken a back seat.

But we’re back! And hopefully will be more regular around here in 2012. (*fingers crossed*)


Current time: Sunday morning, 6:00 am

In my glass: coffee, dark and strong but tempered with cream

In my belly: Only coffee, so far. I need the caffeine to wake me up first, before breakfast.

In my ears: Lena, our cat, licking her lips after eating her breakfast.

Out the window: Nothing but cold and dark at the moment. The sun won’t rise for another full hour.

What I’m wearing: Light blue fleece half-zip top, black fleece lined pants. I’m always cold.

Last watched: “Lbs.” A movie about a food addict who has a heart attack, and decides to change his life. It won a Sundance film award, but I’m undecided about how I feel about it.

Feeling good about: Our dinner with family last night.

Feeling bad about: Not resisting that slice of cake after dinner last night.

Next to me: My coffee, a box of photos from a trip to Finland in 1985, a mess of papers that need sorting, and a cat

Making me think: The boxes of old photos my mom, my sister and I went through last night.  So many pictures! What am I going to do with them all?

  1. Current time: Sunday morning, 7:10 a.m.
    In my glass: Coffee, cream and sugar (real sugar — the kind I hear will kill me eventually)
    In my belly: Only coffee
    In my ears: The little voices of my boys
    Out the window: Not sure — I have yet to glance
    What I’m wearing: Light-blue V-neck fleece and gray yoga pants (in which I’ve never done yoga, but have only slept)
    Last watched: The movie, Shiloh, about a boy who saves a mistreated dog. We recently read this book as a family and followed up with a movie.
    Feeling good about: Clarity — I’m getting to the age where what I value and want for my life is crystal clear. And upcoming dinner plans with friends.
    Feeling bad about: The fact that I just now finished putting all of the Christmas stuff away.
    Making me think: Deep topics like religion & education — it’s almost always that way with me.
