Right Now

Meme blatantly stolen from RedMolly's blog...

Three things in my fridge that define life right now: Fresh fruits and vegetables, because we're trying to take advantage of their seasonal abundance and eat better. Rotting fresh fruits and vegetables, because by dinnertime, chicken nuggets or cereal for dinner sounds just fine. Vanilla rum, because it's yummy with Pepsi and knocks the edge off the day. (Can you tell the kids are running me a bit ragged right now?)

Three recent acquisitions: This lovely trench coat (I can't wait for the weather to cool a bit so I can wear it!), a new clock for the kitchen, and Thomas the Tank Engine underwear for George (think good thoughts this weekend, as he goes cold turkey on the diapers).

Three classics I reach for every day: Coffee, the computer, and a book or other such reading device.

My kids right now, in three words or less: Bored with Summer.

My sweetie right now, in three words or less: Beer in hand.

What's on my to-do list: Figure out George's preschool situation for fall, pay a couple of bills, finish writing my next DSP class, put dishes in the dishwasher, start prepping dinner, create social story to prepare George for this weekend, walk away from this computer...

What I do often that relates to the season right now: Sit and enjoy the sun.

What I'm listening to right now: The soundtrack/effects of the Transformers video game and Emma talking to herself as she plays it.

What I'm worried about right now: My to-do list.

Which news stories I'm following right now: Hmmmmm....I really try not to pay attention to the news. I have enough to worry about.

What I'm reading right now: I just finished reading Body Surfing by Anita Shreve.

What I'm looking forward to right now: Going to Amy & Dale's house in Portland tomorrow for a visit!

A thought I keep returning to right now: I believe in fate, everything will work out as it should.

One small thing that's making me happy right now: Two small things actually, one hanging from each side of the apple tree. Don't know why we waited so long to do this:
