Now seems like as good a time as any for an updated “current things” post!
Current book: At the moment, I am reading The Runaway Jury. It’s taking me a while to get through this one (i.e., I fall asleep every time I start reading). Daniel is two books ahead of me now. We have really gotten into the lawyer-y books and TV shows. We are also currently watching Suits on Netflix (I guess technically it’s via Amazon, but whatevs) and we are both really enjoying it. There is some non-PG language, but that’s my only complaint. It’s a complaint in the sense that I don’t find it necessary to use certain language just to make a point … just use all that fancy lawyer vocabulary to build your argument.
Current music: It’s time for the Christmas tunes! I’ve got a few homemade CDs w/ Christmas music (I know that is like so 2002-2003) that I enjoy listening to this time of year. I’m not a Christmas music for months person, but during the actual week of Christmas, it is fun.
Current guilty pleasure: Eating Talenti gelato and then sitting in front of the space heater and cuddling under 5 blankets.
Current drink: Water. So boring and yet, so vital to our existence.
Current food: Salted caramel Noosa yogurt. I am a fan of salted caramel anything really, but that is hands down my favorite yogurt flavor. It’s almost too good.
Current obsession: My 2017 planner! I LOVE getting a new planner each year (*nerd alert*).
Current craving: A sunny day (it’s been rainy and dreary for several days now). Come on Mr. Sunshine, it’s time to play!
Current need: I NEED to watch ELF & Christmas Vacation! Hopefully both of these needs will be met this week. Watching Christmas Vacation is a yearly tradition at my grandmother’s on Christmas Day. We’ve done it every year since I can remember and every year (even now) my dad tries to yell over the “boss rant” scene so that the kids (i.e., me) don’t hear the profanity and it drives my aunt crazy because it’s her favorite scene. LOL. Gotta love those crazy family traditions (or just your crazy family members :)).
Speaking of traditions, I think that we might’ve found a new one this year. Santa visited our neighborhood last Saturday and we had an impromptu photo session.
Current indulgence: Going in to work late. I’m “part-time” right now and I don’t really have a set schedule, so I’ve been taking some liberty with my arrival time. It’s been really nice and I am not ready to give it up come 01/01.
Current bane of my existence: Wrapping presents. Let’s face it, I will likely end up getting gift bags and tissue paper for most of them anyway.
I got a few little presents for my mom, dad and Daniel at RW this weekend (and they wrap for you)! Major score!
Current procrastination: Showering.
Current confession: I keep Q-tips nearby at all times. I dislike being anywhere without them. I could care less if I have showered or not (see above), but by golly I want to have clean ears! I also clean Brooks’ ears out every night before bed. Golden retrievers are very prone to ear infections, so we have to stay on top of that (or perhaps I’m just weird … who knows).
Current quotes: Anything and everything from the movie ELF!
Buddy the Elf, what’s your favorite color?
Don’t be a cotton-headed ninny-muggins.
You sit on a throne of lies!
I just like to smile. Smiling is my favorite.
Son of a nutcracker!
He’s an *angry* elf!
We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup.
Good news! I saw a dog today!
OH! It’s very sucky!
P.S. There are TOO many good quotes from Christmas Vacation to list (also see above rant about non-PG language). The language in Christmas Vacation does not, however, bother me. I know that makes zero sesnse.
Current excitement: Daniel’s birthday (30!) is TODAY and Christmas is THIS WEEK
Current mood: Festive
What is your favorite Christmas movie?!
