Listening... to the twins playing in their room over the monitor. They have always stayed up and played after bedtime, but lately they've been staying up a solid 1.5-2 hours after we've said goodnight, so that's neat. Thankfully as I type this, Colby is playing quietly with his Transformers and Clara is "reading" a book to herself, so at least I'm not listening to the standard WWF/bowling alley sounds that I normally hear.
Eating... dark chocolate Reese's peanut butter cups. Dark chocolate is a great source of antioxidants and peanut butter has protein, so basically it's health food.
Drinking... water. I'm afraid this answer will never get any more exciting.
Wearing... well I'm not wearing them yet, but I just ordered these shoes from DSW and I can't wait to wear them in the Dominican Republic next month!!
(Because let's be honest, do you really want to read about how I'm wearing a t-shirt from our church's women's retreat and some cotton gaucho pants from Target that are older than my marriage, which Brian affectionately refers to as my "AWPs" (After Work Pants)?)
Feeling... challenged, but fortunately not in an overwhelmed way. I started a new position at work last week and although I don't enjoy the fact that I don't know how to answer at least half the questions I'm being asked (yet!), it has been nice to take on some new responsibilities and broaden my skillset a bit.
Wanting... someone to go pick out all new makeup for me, and then buy it, and then apply it for me each day. Is that so much to ask?
Needing... to stop eating so much Mexican food (refer to above-mentioned upcoming trip to the beach).
Thinking... about Clara's upcoming dance recital. We have pictures tonight (in costume), studio run-throughs in a couple of weeks, then the dress rehearsal, and then the recital itself. There are a lot of details for this first time (type A) dance mom to remember!!
Enjoying... having a housekeeper!! We finally hired one a few weeks ago for the first time in our marriage and even though she has only come once (she comes again today), it has been a game-changer. I still try to clean some each week, but it's comforting to know that even if I'm swamped and/or unmotivated to keep up with it all, the longest our toilets will go without being cleaned is 2 weeks. Hooray!
