Reading...Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King...I don't read a lot of Stephen King, but this one received a lot of great reviews and is more suspense/thriller and less paranormal. 

Listening...right this very second as I type this, The World in My Eyes by Depeche Mode.  Twenty-plus years old and still a fantastic song.

Thinking...that I need to do my guest post for jenn's blog.  She is celebrating her 10 year blogiversary.  She needs more to guest blog AND you can win prizes too.  So, check that out...

Wishing...that finding a place to live in Sydney that suits our needs wasn't such a pain in my backside.

Planning...to catch up with some girlfriends of mine tonight.  It's been too long seeing these lovely faces.

Wearing...a maroon scarf with white stars that my dad and stepmom got me the last time I was in Texas.

Loving...the fact that I sold a black diamond ring today.  I love selling jewellery.  People are (most often) giving jewellery with a sentiment of happiness, appreciation, and love.  It beats selling a truckload of roofing materials.  (I know this from experience.)

Feeling...anxious.  Lots going on at the moment, and I'm about to leave for a month.  I'm super excited about seeing loved ones in Texas, but it's really difficult to leave my life for a month (especially my guy and my fur babies). 

Wanting...to have a day set aside where I do nothing but listen to new music.  I have a feeling that 17 hour plane ride will have some time allotted for new music listening.

Watching...as embarrassing as this is to admit, I have about 20 episodes of Dance Moms recorded.  I'm trying to watch them to catch up.  I don't watch much tv anymore.  Why do I choose this ridiculous form of entertainment to watch? 

What are you currently doing?


  1. I loved Mr. Mercedes! Hope you get some good friend time in this week!

  2. Jeez that's a long flight! Well safe travels and have fun! Thank goodness for the internet that you'll be able to keep in touch with your man and fur babies!!


  3. I'd be anxious about leaving my life for a month too. Excited, but anxious!

    Tell me some of your tricks and tips for a long flight please. We have a 16 hour one coming up in January.

  4. hahaha @ dance moms.
    yay for texas! but yeah its nerve racking to leave your life, isn't it! i'm excited for you :) enjoy that horribly awesome flight ;)

  5. I had never thought of the down side of uprooting your life for a month to go back "home" but that is gonna be tough. Lucky we live in the technology age that we do and you'll be able to Skype your man and your fur babies :)

  6. Searching for a place can be so tiring! I am keeping my fingers crossed for you! Hope you had a great time with your friends. I hope I can meet up with mine soon too! I hope you will have a fabulous time in Texas! Safe travels!

  7. Wow a 10 year blogiversary?! That's super special - I agree it is difficult to leave your life for a month - which is what I did to go to Oz. Enjoy your trip girlie!

  8. I'm so sorry I didn't get my guest post done. It ended up being a crazy week and I totally should never have procrastinated! I suck!

    Also, I'm planning to read Mr. Mercedes as part of a summer reading challenge. I'm excited!


I love comments, and I enjoy our interactions. I respond via email, but if you're a "no reply blogger", I can't. Don't think I'm ignoring you!
