Sister Mother Husband Dog: Etc. It's Delia Ephron's new book of essays, and I decided to give it a whirl after becoming obsessed with an article that I blogged about last week. I am so in love with this book and I don't ever want to finish it. It has so many layers to it, even at the half way point, and I'd imagine it would appeal to anyone who enjoys good writing and honest storytelling. Let me know if you decide to read it!
Eating: Sandwiches. I've talked about it before but I'm one of those people who eat the same thing all of the time, everyday, until I get sick of it. Right now I just want sandwiches. Sandwiches for breakfast (egg and bacon on an English muffin) and sandwiches for lunch (turkey, provolone, lettuce, tomato, onion and vinegar). If you know of any good sandwich-related blogs (is there such a thing?), send the links my way.
Thinking about: 2 things, both related. Lately I've felt angry at things happening outside of my control- angry that horrible things happen to wonderful, beautiful people. It's so upsetting to see a friend hurting, and when I know there isn't much I can do to help with her pain. I feel similar to how I felt this summer, when we lost Andrew and my Grandma in a span of a few days, and it just makes me feel so sad. At the same exact time though, I've felt so blown away with the outpouring of love and support from this internet community over the past week. It's amazing to see so many people come together to support a friend and it's warmed my heart, even when it's been pretty impossible to see the good in things.
Enjoying: Charlie. I'm obviously enjoying both of the kiddos but goodness, is this baby stage sweet. Of course some days are challenging (this is a given) but I choose to focus on the good, and there is just so much of it. Every morning I wake up so excited that I get to spend my day holding and feeding and rocking this little bundle of love. It's such a special time that goes by way too quickly, so I am soaking up every single second of it.
Watching: so many shows. Nashville (the best- Connie Britton is my favorite), X-Factor (this season is SO good- loving Kelly Rowland), Sons of Anarchy (holy cow, soo violent...but I can't look away), Revenge (enjoying it, but getting a little repetitive), and Parenthood (the best). I'm going to stop with the parentheses now but I also have to add that I've somehow gotten sucked into watching Teen Mom 3, even though last time I swore I wouldn't continue watching the show! Are any of you watching any of these? I feel like I have a few more but I'm drawing a blank.
Loving: seeing all of the sweet babies that were born right around Charlie get bigger and grow more everyday thanks to IG, watching Henry grow into his big brother role, feeling like I'm getting back to feeling just a little bit normal post-baby, late night workouts, Fall everything, texting all day long with my sister and Mom, our staycation last weekend- I'll share pictures tomorrow, and getting excited for a friend's wedding this next weekend.
