Since it's been about 5 weeks since I posted one of these, I thought it was time to try it again!

Reading: Standing in the Rainbow by Fannie Flagg.  I read another book of hers awhile ago and liked it, and got this from the used book sale many moons ago.  It's a story about a bunch of townspeople in Elmwood Springs, Missouri and it begins in the 1940s.  So interesting, but not much plot! Also, this is the 2nd book in a 4 part series.  I've only read this one and the first book I read was book 4.  So, in my opinion you don't really need to read them in order.  But this is my experience with just these two books!

Loving:  my kid.  She cracks me up.  She has such a great sense of humor and doesn't fully get it yet, but man does she crack me up!

Feeling: ready for summer! Not so ready for my kids bday.  She turns 8 soon, and I do not have any idea of what to get her for her bday.  She literally has everything she wants which is made evident every year when people ask her what she wants for her bday/Christmas and she has zero ideas.  Yeah... so far I have a book that I bought months ago, and pjs that were on sale months ago.  Thinking about getting her some softball stuff she doesn't have yet.  But also looking at the local theatre to see if they have any shows she and I could maybe attend this summer.

Anticipating: my 20 week ultrasound.  I'm nervous.  We know it's a girl already because of genetic testing.  We also know that all those tests were negative.  But it wasn't for everything.  And, I just feel like I need some more reassurance.  The news with the daily taking away of women's control of their bodies everywhere doesn't help, when I'm worried about what I may or may not find out.  Let me tell you, I've always been pro-choice, but going through pregnancy/having a child has made me more adamant.  This will be my last pregnancy regardless, so I best be getting on the sterilization train, before even more of my freaking rights get taken away by people who just want to control a woman.  

Grateful: that I have such a sweet child.  She made me a book for Mother's Day at school that is just so sweet.  It made me tear up, because even at my worst, she sees my best.

Working: on clearing more space on my bookshelf.  I moved the one I'm keeping for myself downstairs, but I have more books than what the bookshelf holds.  So my 'job' has been reading books I know I won't want to keep after I read.  Most I got at 'fill a bag' day at the library over the last few years.   I also have to finish reorganizing the office, but I've been at a standstill for a bit because the daunting task of emptying my desk just isn't appealing ha!

Listening: to lots of podcasts! I've recently listened to the first season of Up and Vanished that I liked and Over My Dead Body.  I'm on waaay long back episodes of Matrimoney and The Girl Next Door Podcast. 
Watching: the last few episodes of The Big Bang Theory and The Code.  I'm excited for new Southern Charm!!

Wishing: a meal planning/making fairy
