Listening: Sitting here this morning, I am listening to silence except for the occasional goose honking overhead. Silence is nice. There's not much more to say about that.
Loving: What am I loving? My treadmill. I haven't gotten the morning routine down yet, but the plan is to get a few miles in BEFORE work. I find myself still lingering too long with my coffee cup. So I need to set some goals. This week I will get on the treadmill on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It will mean that I have to pry the coffee cup from my hand by 5:30, but I can do it!
Thinking: I have company coming this week and that's all I can think about! My son has been living in South Korea and I haven't seen him in over a year. When I was in the middle of raising three small children, I never imagined that there would come a time when I'd only see them once a year or so. But that's our reality. The only good part of this arrangement is that I get to travel to places I might not have thought of going to. I've spent summers in Japan and Germany so far. Italy is on the agenda for this summer. As exciting as global travel can be, I'd rather have my boys living close by.
Wanting: February was the month of 3 day weekends followed by a week of minimum days for conferences. All routine seems to slide out the door with a month like that. March is long. Very long. Our spring break doesn't start until the last Friday of the month. I am dreaming of another 3 day weekend already. And, as proof that dreams can come true, I'm taking a four day weekend! My son will only be here for 4 days and I want to make the most of those days! So I'm taking this Friday and next Monday off. I'll be using hard earned bank days and having to write detailed sub plans, but it's worth it.
Needing: I had high hopes of blogging at least once a week. That still hasn't happened and it's because I'm not making the time for it. I keep thinking I will just 'find' the time and I don't. I need to schedule it into my week.
Like, Love, Hate: I like a hot, foamy, no water chai tea latte with an extra pump. I endulge several times a week. I LOVE lupines in the spring. They remind me of Texas. We don't see fields of them here, but it only takes one to make me smile. I hate laundry. Not the whole process, just the folding of it. I have been known to live out of the clean laundry basket for a whole week without folding a thing.
That's my currently for this month...a few days late. If you're a late bird like me, go link up on this month's Currently before it's NEXT month!
Have a fabulous week!
