It is now officially beyond the mid point of the month, so you know what that means…I am over 2 weeks late linking up with Anne in Residence for her Currently series. Currently posts always go live on the first Wednesday of the month. Unless you are me! Have been held a captive passenger on the crazy train, and we all know there’s no Internet access on it. I have been in Washington state for a long weekend, mom is back in the hospital and has been for a week, PC is losing his job as of May, I resigned from mine before knowing he was losing his, and there are about 900 other little things making me bonkers.
Today’s post is all about what we are currently anticipating, going (to), hearing, making, and watching. Wait a sec! No, it’s not. It’s about what we are accomplishing, buying (and shouldn’t be since we don’t have any expendable money right now), making, reading and scheming. Told you I was on the crazy train. Heck, I am the conductor!! Wish it was about what is making me crazy…I could really elaborate on that! But alas, it’s not so away we go…
Currently, 03.2019 and 1/2
7,200 steps and 3 stories a day. Not absolutely every day but almost. Averaged 7,300+ steps a day last week and 5 stories a day. Now that spring is springing, I hope to get my morning walk in which about guarantees I will make 7,200 steps each day that I do it.
not a whole lot for myself, since I quit my little job and with 3 birthdays this month, and souvenirs to buy while I was in Washington. But that’s ok, I don’t need a thing. Except these white booties (similar, similar) I ordered before I left town. Can’t wait to try them on.
Ok, everytime I try to add the link to a similar pair of booties and no matter what I do, no matter what URL I use, it links to an UGLY scarf. Think I finally got it fixed AFTER this post went live. Goin’ round the bend on the crazy train. Choo-choo!
Bought this fun graphic tee to wear on the plane to see my P. Charming. And I do mean WE watch “The Bachelor” on Mondays.
Oh, and these Old Navy high-rise secret-slim pockets button-fly Rockstar ankle jeans, (similar, similar). Okay, these links are all messed up, too. Going back in now to try to fix them. If you are seeing links to a Margi Gras striped polo and a faux leather moto, I couldn’t get off the crazy train long enough to figure out what is going on.
Eyeing a teddy bear jacket like the one Jill at Doused in Pink styled here but need it to go on sale with the end of winter season. Wish this one would go on sale…it is reversible and the prettiest apricot color. Guess I have been shopping for myself a little bit, despite not having my little part-time job income. But that has got to stop. See scheming below.
my 2019 spring bucket list and checking it twice. How about you? Fared pretty well on my winter list. Will be sharing my spring bucket list with some pretty fabulous bloggers on 03.21.2019. Won’t you put your list together and join us? Made this graphic for the occasion. Feel free to snag it if you are joining up with us and need a quick graphic.
The Wartime Sisters by Lynda Cohen Loigman (and several other books). Our virtual book club selected that title for our March read. We didn’t really start out choosing a book a month but it has kind of worked out that way. The gals seemed to really enjoy this book but I am not quite finished.
The characters are very well drawn and the story unfolds from the alternating perspectives of sister Ruth and Millie. Interested in joining our book club – let me know in a comment below.
ways we can tighten our belts a little bit in expectation of my PC’s job ‘going away’ as of mid-May. Originally, two weeks ago, we were told he had until mid-July. But this news just keeps on getting better (not), and now he has only 2 more months. True, we could move to Virginia or Maryland, not sure which and he could keep his position. But we really don’t want to move. The Department of Defense will continue to pay my Prince C. until September and will put him on a priority placement list for a job here in El Paso. But he only gets offered one job via the list. If he turns that job down, he is on his own looking for employment. Didn’t think at this point in our lives we would be worried about making ends meet, looking for jobs. Guess I need to dust off my resume again.
Before you know it, we will be sharing next month’s Currently posts. Hope to have mine ready to go on the first Wednesday of April, 04.03.2019. We will be talking about what we’re currently experiencing, appreciating, wishlisting, posting and considering. Going to start thinking about that post right now. Click here to read Anne’s March Currently post or run over there with me right now.
Thank you, sweet ones, for your sweet friendship. I like to think you will be there when my crazy station pulls into the station.
Hugs and kisses,
