Currently: Now for October Eves

Current Books: I am about halfway through Small Damages by Beth Kephart. I also have a book of short stories open near my chair. I read a story between novels. I recently finished Wonder and More Happy Than Not. Both were amazing books.

Current Playlist: I'm still listening to Oceans (Donde Mis Pies Pueden Fallar) a lot. Other than that, I have been catching up on Writing Excuses and the Happier podcast.

Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: On Sunday, I watched the first 10 episodes of The Fosters on Netflix.

Current Color: Poppy red

Current Food: I just bought candy corn and peanuts.

Current Drink: Coffee with caramel-vanilla creamer.

Current Favorite Favorite: Encouraging feedback on my first writing assignment for a class I am taking.

Current Wishlist: Our Disney trip to go well.

Current Needs: Self-discipline when it comes to getting my tasks completed efficiently. I need to de-clutter my office and set up a writing area where I can concentrate and get some work done. I have a lot of it to do.

Current Triumph: I handled a crisis with my oldest while Corey was out of town without losing my composure.

Current Bane-of-my-Existence: My own self-doubt and fear. Also, middle school math.

Current Indulgence: Eating out way too often.

Current Mood: Mostly good, tense from time to time.

Current Outfit: Jeans and a CLS t-shirt, Chucks, banned books bracelet, bright blue socks

Current #1 Blessing: Our Disney trip is paid for. Dining reservations are made. Hotel room is booked. Park days are scheduled. My best friend and her family will be there with us.

Current Quote: “Doubt is unsettling to the ego, and those who are drawn to ideologies that promise the dispelling of doubt by proffering certainties will never grow. In seeking certainty they are courting the death of the soul, whose nature is forever churning possibility, forever seeking the larger, forever riding the melting edge of certainty’s glacier.” ― James Hollis
