Currently, I am. . .

Thinking about: WAY too much, as usual. Among other things, I have been thinking about the conversations I want to have with my little RJ while he is here for his next visit & what we should do while he is here. This will be our last visit until at least Thanksgiving, from the looks of it. I am SUPER excited to see him; he arrives one week from tomorrow for a three-week visit before we both start school. AND, speaking of school. . . It’s weighing on my mind a lot that even though I start school four weeks from tomorrow & I am resolved to not only go, but also do well, & see it through this time around, I also feel a responsibility to be working & contributing financially to our household. With one vehicle & the further constraints on my availability because of school, I am really struggling to find a solution. It has been seriously weighing on my mind. I am trying desperately to get creative about this situation because I know there is a solution somewhere; I am just at a loss – right now – as to what that is.

Reading: I most recently read John Green’s “The Fault in Our Stars” for a book club gathering that was put together as a result of a local women’s club I found on Facebook. It was a quick, easy, but interesting read. I now have a few Dean Koontz books I have been meaning to get around to & that same group of women is in the process of choosing another book. We shall see. . . Reading is something I have always enjoyed, but my attention span has been aggravatingly short lately; it’s something I would definitely like to remedy.

Listening to: As usual, mostly just country music. At home, it’s through a Music Choice channel on the television. In the truck, it’s 102.5 KNIX, which I am still getting used to after moving to Arizona. Of course, when it is not music, I usually have something on the television for background noise. Dead silence is something I have a hard time with these days. . . I am not sure why.

Watching: I’ve recently finished catching up on most of ABC’s television series, “Black Box”. I enjoy “Under the Dome” & “Extant” right now too, though. Either way, I need to find another show to enjoy before the fall season starts back up, because I watch an episode On Demand when I wake up too late to beat the heat on my morning walk & need to get some time in on my Gazelle instead. 😉

Thankful for: Quite a lot, actually. Lately, there are two main things at the top of this list, though. The first is my husband. I still catch myself looking at him & wondering how I got so lucky to meet him, much less marry him. It’s SO cliché to say; I get that. (Like, gag me with a spoon! LOL) BUT, it doesn’t change this fact. It’s almost scary how much I love this man & it is great comfort to know that he loves me just as much. He is truly my best friend & I have never felt as secure as when I am with him. The second is that, somehow, my youngest son’s father & I have been able to keep our relationship amicable enough to where he is so open about Little RJ coming to visit whenever the handsome husband & I can pull together the funds for his travel. Little RJ seems completely unaware that this is not how a lot of parents behave when they are not a couple; he thinks this is a normal way of life because it has always been how his life has been. I think it’s pretty awesome & a reason for all of us involved to be proud.

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
