Current Books: I’m reading The Group by Mary McCarthy. It’s just the pace I need right now. Everything in me is speeding in circles and it is a nice walk through the lives of a group of young women in the 30s. I recently finished Feathers, What Happens Next, and Harmless. All were good reads.
Current Playlist: “Fighting for Nothing” by Meg & Dia, “Sleep to Dream” by Fiona Apple, “Criminal” by Fiona Apple, and comedy on Pandora.
Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Spending WAY too much time refreshing my email
Current Colors: Bright summer shades
Current Food: I eat Taco Bell when I’m stressed. It’s a problem.
Current Drink: Yeah, so, Taco Bell now carries apple soda, which I am addicted to. I used to buy it at my favorite Texaco, but that Texaco was demolished by the tornado. So… Taco Bell again. Don’t judge me.
Current Favorite Favorite: I made a new writer friend on a forum and some new writer friends via Twitter, and they make me feel less crazy, so they are my favorite favorites this month.
Current Wishlist: A certain Kate Spade bag (it’s on clearance even), a certain kind of email or phone call to happen, Haydn’s school schedule to arrive and not be a hassle I need to fix.
Current Needs: We are well cared for at Casa Truett. Haydn gets braces next week, so I could use prayer for surviving the whining that will ensue.
Current Triumph: Jumping back on the metaphorical horse
Current Bane-of-my-Existence: My own impatience and self-doubt
Current Indulgence: Too much time online
Current Mood: Mostly good. A bit stressed, but so much better than this time last week.
Current Outfit: Lucky jeans, green fitted tee, lemon Jamberry wraps on my fingers and galaxy wraps on my toes.
Current #1 Blessing: My husband, as always. Y’all, I was able to do some revisions in two weeks because he is so supportive. Not every man can deal with his wife locking herself in the bedroom with a laptop and the house falling apart at the seams.
Current Quote: “On her way back, she scoops up forgiveness like a bouquet, sniffs it deep and arranges it in a vase. She sets forgiveness down, shining in the middle of everything.”
― Colleen Clayton, What Happens Next
Current Link: I’m on the Middle Places blog today, talking about bathing suit shopping.
