Hi guys! I’ve been wanting to write some rambly style posts for a while but time always seems to get away from me. Yes on Wednesday through Friday each week I’m at home alone with the babe and she usually naps for two to three hours during the day, but I have no idea what happens during that time! Of course, if I’m honest, it usually takes me several hours to churn out a single post these days.
I keep an Evernote note of Top Ten Tuesday prompts so that I can quickly see at a glance if there’s anything interesting coming up, and when I saw that today’s prompt is Ten Facts About Me I figured I’d roll this up into stuff that’s going on in my life right now. You know…besides those three little whirlwinds that keep me busy.
So, instead of the usual facts like I’m half Canadian or that I’ve had my ears pierced 11 times, below are ten things that are true in this moment.
Ten Absolutely Random Facts About Me Right Now
ONE – I am obsessed with making my bed every day. Sometimes this doesn’t happen until five minutes before I get in bed. Yes it does make a difference! It’s one of my absolute favorite things. Even better if the sheets have been washed that day.
TWO – No matter how hard I try, I absolutely cannot seem to get dinner on the table before 6:30. Even if I’m only heating up leftovers. Or if I’ve been cooking something all day. I suspect this is because I’m supremely good at procrastinating? But 6:30 is certainly the magic number.
THREE – Snapchat. I succumbed. And those filters. I cannot get enough of them. Ahem…see first paragraph about what happens during naptime. It’s a sickness. Find me! (And while the makeup below is not mine, the bedhead 1000% is)
FOUR – I, like everyone else in the world, cannot stop listening to Hamilton (the musical). I’m currently on step 20 of these Steps to Becoming Obsessed with Hamilton (though agree with 21).
FIVE – When I’m in between audiobooks, I’ll sometimes listen to bits and pieces of Outlander. Skipping here and there. Just trying to get more of Jamie and Claire (rhyme unintentional).
SIX – Speaking of Jamie and Claire (what, they can take up 20% of my random facts, right?!), I recently watched the season finale of Outlander Season 2 on Starz. There were actual tears. I can’t wait another nine months for another season!
SEVEN – I chopped my hair off. It hasn’t been this short in years and I sent Scott a warning text before I got home because I was afraid he’d die of shock. The girls barely noticed. Heh.
EIGHT – We recently took a roadtrip to New Mexico (Taos area). I’ve already forgotten that I slept 60% of the nights with a six month old on my chest and am proclaiming it the best trip ever. Though I have not forgotten when Scott decided to drive home through the night rather than during the day. Thank goodness for Hamilton and Outlander during my driving shifts!
NINE – Elle goes to Kindergarten in six weeks. I literally just calculated that for the first time and can now be found in a fit of depression. How did this happen?
TEN – Annnnnnnd to keep this bookish, I’m currently in various progress with four different books. Just Mercy (on my Kindle), Everything is Illuminated (on paper), The Fireman (audio/library ebook). Ok, that’s just three books. I forgot that I just finished Gulp (on audio). (Pst…if you want to read The Fireman, jump along on social media with #FiremanAlong. Lots of folks still getting started!
Whew! So maybe this was cheating a bit for today’s post, but it was fun thinking up these random tidbits. I feel like that’s what this blog (and I) have been missing lately.
What’s an absolutely random fact about YOU right now? I’d love to hear what’s going on in your world.
