Currently…. 7/5/12

Another busy week around these parts. Swimming on Sunday, parade on Wednesday, and lots and lots of 93º+  days in between. Here’s what we’re CURRENTLY up to, inspired by the ever great Randalin and Wendy

Mason is currently…

Inspired by – his books. We went to the swimming pool on Sunday and he made me play an elaborate game where I was a tractor that he was riding (while he made tractor noises) and then I would get stuck in the mud and he would have to help me get out. About a month ago, we’d frequently read a book about a tractor that got stuck in the mud. It apparently stuck with him!

Devouring – blueberries. Lots and lots of blueberries. He can’t get enough. He would have a pint basket of them at every meal if we let him.

Thankful for – Many many hours of playing outside. Daycare has been big on running through the sprinklers and doing water activies outside lately and he LOVES it.

Watching – I introduced him to Garfield this week. He liked it. So now that’s four TV shows he’s willing to watch – Yo Gabba Gabba, Wonder Pets, Alf, and Garfield. LOL I so looooooooooooooove having Amazon Prime on our TV! He also loves watching tractor videos on You Tube.

WeeMason’s Mom is currently…

Inspired by – posts related to “How to Miss a Childhood” about how easy it is to be so sucked into what’s going on on Twitter and Instagram that you’re missing the story unfolding right in your living room.

Devouring – root beer floats, watermelon and food from the grill. Yum!!!

Thankful for – having great relationships with my parents and being able to tell them both “Thank You” and that I appreciate them on a regular basis. Had you asked me five years ago if I would ever imagine a time where I would look foward to my mother coming over on a weekly basis (instead of talking to her on the phone once or twice a month) I would have thought you were nuts. It’s amazing how, while never a magic fix, kids can bring families together.

Watching – Teen Mom. This show is one of my guilty pleasures. I know it’s huge and popular and I shouldn’t be ashamed, but it’s a show on MTV and I’m nearly 30 years old, so it just feels wrong. But I love it anyway. LOL

Starting – to realize that I need to stop researching and thinking about things and actually doing them. Too often I pour a bunch of time into THINKING about things like exercising more, or living simpler, or changing up my investments, but I never move forward with any of the things I research. I should really START to do that, huh?

    I’m a victim of getting stuck in the research stage too. It’s annoying sometimes, but I will say that when I do actually act on what I’ve been researching, I know I made the best and most informed decision!

    Thanks for linking up again!

    PS – did you change your blog font? Am I crazy to have noticed something like that?

    I love Garfield too. I was watching it the other day and started thinking about my old Garfield books and how fun they were to read. I wonder if they still sell those?

    It seems like I’m always stuck in research stage. I can’t figure out how to get from step a to step b and make things actually happen. It’s so frustrating!!!!!
