CURRENTLY: SEPTEMBER 2016

It always amazes me how quickly time flies. 6 months go by in a flash and half of me feels like I didn’t get anything done and the other half feels reborn or off on a crazy tangent. So here I am again, checking in with myself. If you do this exercise, share your links below!

CURRENTLY COOKING
Though true fall is still two weeks away, I find myself making comfort foods. I blame the pumpkin spice latte for the change in the air and for the city-wide panic that it might rain in the morning (El Niño aftershocks?). I still need to make a pot of Gazpacho to end this delicious summer.

CURRENTLY LOVING
My new bamboo mobile device charger and matching key organizer  that started an organization revolution! These were the first pretty home accessories purchased and affixed to our walls since last year’s flood!  The immediate organization gains were obvious but the unexpected healing of our psyche helped us settle down.

CURRENTLY DAY DREAMING ABOUT
After attending two blogging conferences, I have numerous plans for changes rolling around in my head. Meanwhile, it’s my favorite exercise to figure out ways to work with all sorts of people in a synergistic and symbiotic – an SAT word – way. Full reviews of both conferences coming soon.

CURRENTLY READING (Just starting)
The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
As one of my two favorite living people who astound and inspire me with their ability to create fascinating worlds, I am eager to feel J.K.’s words embrace me in a much more charming locale.

CURRENTLY PANICKING
My teen son’s and my tween daughter’s school schedules.  With challenging classes and sports, I feel like every Friday we’ll celebrate surviving the week.  I am panicked and amazed every week at how much they accomplish.

CURRENTLY LISTENING TO
This is Acting  by Sia.
I love that she’s not into celebrity, just into the songs. She performs her own, and writes so much for others. With that knowledge, I have no problems picking out her music when others perform her material.  Love her laugh most of all.

CURRENTLY NEEDING
The housing market in my area to stabilizes. The LA Rams rammed the rental rates and house prices up and I’m sitting here quietly trying to stay put.  Though this place saved us, it’s not my favorite, but the options are ridiculous right now.

CURRENTLY ANTICIPATING
I love hosting themed events.  For work, we’re hosting a conference but want to give the guests the true California experience. For fun, I’m creating a Vegas Oceans 16 themed event. In true Disney style, creating events that appeal to every sense with unexpected surprises invigorates me.

CURRENTLY: MARCH 2016

Recently, I lunched with a long-time friend! I relished reconnecting over lunch and simply focusing on the person in front of me. Then my wandering mind connected that to truly get centered, I must invest time to also get to know myself.

Inspired by a blog – I surveyed my CURRENT self – and will again periodically. As seasons change, so do my moods and interests.

CURRENTLY ANTICIPATING
Our Spring Break Bisbee, AZ road trip – though my daughter demanded an upgrade from our SUV to a motorhome because she feels claustrophobic if 3 of us drive a car built for 7.

Look what I found on http://www.carthrottle.com! Maybe this’ll do!

CURRENTLY AVOIDING
Updating my resume. I’m not preparing a job-change, but always kept it updated. I’m not sure whether I lack the desire to job hunt or versioning it to capture keywords that I no longer recall the flow of my original resume.

CURRENTLY LOVING
Episode VII brought on the Star Wars superbug in our house. Currently, no cure seems possible in our lifetimes!

Toys WTF! With The Force! I ❤️ BB8!

CURRENTLY CRAVING
Adele’s 25 CD. Certain artists I get on iTunes, specific ones only on CD to read lyrics and fawn over artist pictures…or, perhaps. I just need a bluetooth music system so I feel the bass.

CURRENTLY COVETING
My one regret is not investing money from my divorce flash sale into a new home. Coveting those that own, not rent.

Perfect Cozy Abode when we’re all moving if our candidate doesn’t win!

CURRENTLY WATCHING
Kids and I love Youtube, Buzzfeed and WatchMojo.com – I’m a sucker for Top 10 lists and people trying things outside their comfort zone. Carpool Karaoke by James Corden draws us in every time.

CURRENTLY READING
Paolo Coehlo The Alchemist. After hearing about this inspirational book from so many directions I had to read it. I’m only about 23 pages in so far, but I can sense that the story will be charming and the lessons – universal.

E-books lack textured pages and adorable bookmarks!

CURRENTLY PANICKING
My son’s teenage years and my daughter’s tweens

CURRENTLY DAY DREAMING ABOUT
Tomorrow! I get to do something totally new and beyond my comfort zone. Can’t wait to share more about it with you! Here’s my surprise: Filming a BUZZFEED video!
