My friend Karen once suggested I write a "currently" post.  At the time, I thought it was a great idea, so now, at least 3 months later, I'm getting to it.


Wicked.  Yeah, I'm a little behind the times when it comes to reading popular books.  I'm enjoying it, but I'll admit I'm excited to finish it and move on to my next book.

Listening to:
My most recent iTunes purchase was "When I'm With You" by JJ Heller.  It's a cute little song, and my daughter loves it and has already started to memorize the lyrics.  She's 2.5 and loves to sing.

We don't have cable.  No, we're not those kind of people that think TV is bad.  We don't have it because it's expensive, especially when you pay for 200 channels but only watch 3.  We're thinking of getting it again, but for now we watch all our favorite shows via the Internet or Netflix.  Anyway, our current queue is filled with seasons 1 of The Middle and Modern Family.  Great shows!

Addicted to:
Farkle.  The oh so exciting dice game that has a free app and allows me to play with complete strangers as often as I want.  It's a game of complete chance and virtually no skill is needed to win, but I still feel great when I'm the first to reach 10,000 points!

Water and Dr. Pepper.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I get the water from the Dr. Pepper.

That my daughter was just invited to her first ever friend birthday party, cooking dinner, and being unemployed by choice.

Looking Forward to:
Seeing the play Sleepy Hollow, my brothers wedding and seeing Melissa Etheridge in Nevada.  These are in chronological order, by the way.  For sure I am MOST looking forward to the wedding.

Surprised by:
How busy I am.  Luckily for me, it's all fun things like going out to eat with my friends, bridal showers, baby showers and birthday parties.

In desperate need of:
New clothes.  I choose comfort over looking good almost always, and I imagine my husband would love to see in me in something besides jeans and a t-shirt.  There's gotta be more comfortable, yet fashionable clothes out there, right?

Thankful for (besides the obvious of family, friends, jobs, etc.):
The changing of the seasons.  Not only do I not have to use my A/C anymore (hence, a lower utility bill), I get to enjoy the beautiful fall colors.  It's the best time of year!

Wanting to change:
How many times I log into Facebook.  It's sort of losing it's appeal, isn't it?  Who's with me?

Favorite time of day:
8:00 pm - my daughter's bedtime.  Enough said.

Wanting to buy:
A computer desk.  We're currently using a night stand because we haven't been able to find a desk we like.  The limited room on the night stand is starting to get old.  IKEA, here we come (hopefully)!

Hopeful for:
That I can jump start this blog again and get lots of comments!

My goal for this blog has gone horribly, horribly wrong.  I rarely post and when I do post, it seems as though my writing lacks "umph."

I've decided this all stems from the reason why I began this blog to begin with.  I was living in Idaho, a new(ish) mom, and I remember feeling this need for "more."

So, I started this blog in hopes of finding "more."

And, now, over a year later, my life is a lot different.  I'm in a new state, a new house, new friends, closer to family, etc., and it seems as though my need for this blog is no longer there.

I've expressed interest in closing the blog down completely, but a few people have encouraged me to keep writing.

So, to my 1 or 2 readers, I need help.  Help me decide what to write about.  What sorts of posts do you like?  Does my blog need a theme, or are random thoughts good enough?

Any advice or thoughts are appreciated.
