Current Books: I am reading (and loving) The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed, and I cannot believe that I share an agent with such an amazingly talented writer. If you come near me, I will gush about this book. Be prepared. I am almost through Richard Rohr’s book on the Enneagram. It has been both enlightening and also confusing. I am 99.9% sure I am a Type 9, but a tiny part of me thinks I am a Type 4. Anywho, I will also talk your ear off about the Enneagram. In the car, I am listening to Caesar’s Last Breath: The Epic Story of the Air Around Us. This is mostly research. I am using air as an overall metaphor in my new manuscript. The main character’s name is Airy.
Current Playlist: A couple of Cranberries MP3s, since Delores died, and I saw the news this morning.
Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: I binged all of season 1 of The Magicians this weekend. I’m not even sure I liked the show, but we were snowed in, and it was easy to just let it keep playing. Plus, classes start tomorrow, so my binge watching time is basically nil until summer.
Current Color: I’ve noticed I buy a lot of aqua/teal lately.
Current Food: I had leftover pizza for breakfast. Don’t judge me.
Current Drink: Pineapple Fanta
Current Favorite Favorite: I am finished ordering/buying textbooks for this semester. My tuition and parking are paid. I like being done with tasks.
Current Wishlist: Here is my Amazon list. My birthday is the 27th. 😉 WISHLIST
Current Needs: A clear idea of the second half of the plot for my new manuscript.
Current Triumph: I graduated from community college in December. 🙂 I had a 4.0.
Current Bane-of-my-Existence: Snow and ice and cold. Either I’m snowed in and can’t work (bye-bye paycheck) or I am at work and can’t take the kids outside so they are wild.
Current Indulgence: Running the fireplace and drinking extra cups of coffee.
Current Outfit: jeans, my 1984 sweatshirt, a big cozy sweater, three pairs of socks (my feet get cold, hush)
Current #1 Blessing: My totally selfless husband who also happens to be handsome and strong and in love with me.
