Right Now: March 3

I always love when Katy posts her "Right Now" posts so I thought I would follow suit and break out of my blogging slump with one of my own.

Listening... to Wicked and Les Miserables on my runs.  I never get tired of Broadway show tunes:-)  Also love Bruno Mars and always look forward to listening to the Wait Wait Don't Tell me podcast that I listen to as I clean the kitchen on Mondays.

Remembering....  the fun little getaway to Great Wolf Lodge.  The girls loved having their friends with them and it sure made it easier on the parents!  Love this photo of Nora photobombing Maddy and her friend underwater:-)

Reading....   My personal read is Sisters of the Sari, it started out promising but is feeling a bit forced to get all the pieces tied up at the end.  And I don't think it will bring me to tears, which is always necessary for a good book in my opinion!  Nora and I are reading Return to the Willows which is reminding me of when I was a girl and read Wind in the Willows.  We are enjoying the read aloud time together, especially when we go out for coffee together to read.  The family read-aloud is currently Scat which we are enjoying but is nothing amazing.  I am looking for a really good one to start after this.  Let me know if you have any recommendations.  I am feeling like we have gone through so many of the classics and with Maddy getting older and having read so much it is getting harder to find new material that will engage all 4 of us.

Eating...   Loving my egg white, spinach, green pepper and onion scrambles topped with pico de gallo and also my daily spinach smoothies.  Healthy can be yummy:-) Maddy made crepes with strawberry sauce all from scratch 100% on her own for dinner tonight.  DELISH!!!

Enjoying.... The glimpses of spring weather we have had.  I have gotten a bit of yard work done and today we enjoyed a full day outside with a family hike (thanks to and then the girls got home and biked in the neighborhood for another hour.  Looking forward to more sun, warmth and outdoor fun.

Playing.... the family has been enjoying Wits and Wagers that Nora received for her birthday (thanks Amy!).  It is a super fun and easy family game for all ages.  It will definitely be going in the camper this summer.

Coveting....  a ceiling without holes in it.  The good news is after years of issues the leak FINALLY seems repaired.  Now to get the drywall work completed and then we will move on to window replacement.  The joys of being a homeowner!!

Watching....  nothing worthy of discussing!!  The girls are excited for The Amazing Race to be back on as that is there one prime time reality show that they get to watch.

Thinking....  alot about having a real job next year.  I am enjoying planning and preparing for the fun but then have moments of wondering why I am doing this.  I am definitely wanting something more in my life to help fulfill me with the girls away all day but then I realize all the freedom I will be giving up and wonder if it will be worth it.

Making...  getting ready to make these clay fish with 25 second graders on Friday.  I have never done a ceramics project with a class, so am feeling a bit nervous about the process.  Wish me luck!!!

So what are you doing RIGHT NOW???  Feel free to play along and share!!
