Making: Banana bread with this recipe
 Uninspired! Warmed Morningstar “chicken” nuggets  for the kids and me tonight with green beans. Threw leftover cheese tortellini on the plate from last night for good measure.
Drinking: Hot peppermint tea at the moment.
Reading: Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, by Lisa See
Wanting: A pair of classic black polarized Wayfarer sunglasses, Ray-Ban’s would be awesome, but I’m on the lookout for a look-alike pair with a lower price tag.
Playing: Sappy love songs by Jason Mraz. I Won’t Give Up is my fave and the video is moving. He’ll be at the Fox Theater in Atlanta September 9th, but I haven’t put any plans into action to go…maybe…
Wasting: Watching movies with my visiting brother while the kids are asleep. Divergent with Shailene Woodley (very good, reminded me a touch of Hunger Games despite different storylines because both plots had cryptically-ruled, post-apocalyptic societies), Transcendence with Johnny Depp (decent, but a little out there), and The Other Woman with Cameron Diaz (fun, chick flick, loved Cameron’s outfits in this movie!).
Wishing: For healing and for another life not to be taken by depression or addiction like the oh-so talented, much loved Robin Williams who I happen to share my birthday with.
Enjoying: Being a stay-at-home mom, my time with my sons and the simplicity of life I have at the moment.
Waiting: For hubby to get home Friday from being out of town this week for work.
Liking: That my sons are enjoying school and come home to me happy.
Wondering: When or if I’ll continue onto chapter four of this novel Searching for Georgia I began last month. I want to continue, but then I tell myself, who am I kidding – I can’t write a novel. I will continue…total crap or not. Soon.
Loving: Our new super comfy couch from Macy’s. It is sooo comfortable.
Marveling: At how fast my sons are growing. These first seven years as a mom have flown by. Realizing that 18 years is not that long to raise children before they move on into adulthood… Can’t blink.
Needing: Have all I need. Just to know my family is safe and sound.
Smelling: My youngest son’s stinky gas tonight! What did I feed him? How does that stink come from such a cute little boy
Wearing: Pajamas at the moment, but not the cutest pjs. I have on loungy pants and an oversized T-shirt. I am super comfortable, though.
Knowing: I am blessed.
Thinking: About the church consignment sale coming up. I haven’t bought cardstock, entered or printed the tags for the items I’m selling and I have to been done by Saturday. Tomorrow is booked so I’ll either sell very little or be a very busy girl on Friday.
Opening: Fun purchases from Charming Charlie redeemed from birthday gift card.

Giggling: See “Smelling” above.
Feeling: See “Knowing.”
