making: plans to do old things in new ways. plans for organizing, plans for making, plans for being a better human.
cooking: potentially for dinner tonight. there is a battle going on over that. in one corner, we have sesame noodles and eggrolls. in the other, laziness. it should be a riveting fight.
drinking: endless cups of steaming vanilla chai tea for the number this cold is doing on my throat. except it seems every time i turn around my mug has grown cold. i think i just like the way the little tea tag looks over my mug.
reading: picture books with aidric and my favorite mama blogs. needing to go get a joco library card.
watching: the office. if only there were a font that expressed how much glee i have typed that with. **about to be watching: sherlock and i just cannot even contain my excitement i have been waiting for this day for so long!!!
listening: to myself speak. i am trying to slow down my speech. i went so many years around the same people i had forgotten i talked so fast, until i started school with new people who commented that they had trained themselves to understand my speed. oops.
wanting: a mamas and papas chair for a, but nice design has such a large tax i will surely be getting something in ugly plastic colors.
looking: forward to graduation. looking very very very very forward to graduation.
playing: increasingly with aidric. he’s becoming so much more able to interact with his environment.
wasting: so much time.
sewing: nothing but i jUST GOT A SEWING MACHINE FOR CHRISTMAS and would like to try my hand at some baby clothes!
wishing: for a roadtrip to somewhere full of pines and muted colors with a stay in a little log cabin full of colorful blankets.
enjoying: this season of life, in all of its incomplete glory.
waiting: for graduation. did i mention i am very excited for graduation?
planning: a mother's day + graduation party extravaganza for myself. i would like a photoshoot. yes, a photoshoot.
liking: what and who i am growing into.
wondering: constantly whether i am giving aidric enough stimulation, verbal exposure, baths, cuddles, etc. etc…
loving: wool socks and fleece-lined leggings and scarves and candles.
hoping: i become all i intend to be, while raising a scholar and a gentleman.
marveling: at how much debt i am in. it is truly stupendous. s/o to you, student loans.
needing: a haircut and color and styling. maybe not needing. but it’s pretty close.
smelling: new delicious vanilla and pumpkin candles i received for christmas. oh and also the horrible smoke smell that is clinging to everything in this apartment from the time we started a fire with the flue closed (in my defense, there are two very misleading levers for the dang thing that apparently both have to be tugged open. who knew).
wearing: the same mustard sweater every dang day. there are actually like 6 pictures on facebook right now of me in it and i wonder if anyone has noticed.
following: too many instagram models. or maybe not enough.
noticing: that things do lose their luster as we grow old(er). like christmas has passed and i still don’t feel like it’s december but it's already january. thankful to have a child to begin seeing things through fresh eyes again.
learning: time moves fast, but change comes slow.
knowing: that i need to get a handle on all of the time i waste.
thinking: that actually fishdom isn’t a waste of time because it makes me happy, ok.
bookmarking: lots of my own blog post ideas.
opening: please no more opening, i haven’t even started putting away everything from christmas.
giggling: in every video i take of aidric ever and embarrassing myself on playback.
