It's been quite some time since I've updated the world with a "currently" post. Here are my current "currently's":

Reading: Follow You Home - I found it on my Kindle, and it seemed like a good "Halloween read". It's kind of horrifying. But I can't put it down!

Thinking: About all that has to be done in the upcoming months - 2 moves in 9 months, another career change. 5 moves in 2 years total, if you really want to get down and dirty. It makes my head hurt when I think about it at this point....

Frustrated: That I cannot have a wife who can clean my house, laundry, grocery shopping. Life has been super busy - and my evenings are spent doing big jobs such as de-cluttering, painting base-boards, cleaning ceiling fans and vents to prepare for selling our house. I need a wife ;)

This is a 1st world problem, I acknowledge this.

Feeling: Annoyed with the forecast of triple digits this week. It's mid October. 100 degrees needs to go away.

Anticipating: My girls trip to Miami Wednesday with my mom, sisters, and sister-in-laws!!! (!!!!!!) So excited. I think this trip is coming at the perfect time to restore my soul ;)

Watching: Seriously zero tv at all these days. It's awesome. We did see "The Martian" in theaters Friday night. Haven't been to a move in about 6 months. I really liked it!

Sad: That there are many people in my life who are dealing with illness and injury right now. Wish I could wave a magic wand, and make everyone feel better.

Working: Hard! But I'm loving my job. Looking back to 1 year ago, I never would have dreamt up the opportunities I'd be facing today.

Grateful: For the full weekend I just got to spend with Ryan. We got a lot done around the house, and did some major catching up on life. It was exactly what the doctor ordered!

Listening: Indie Dance radio on Pandora. It's my new favorite!

Wishing: I could be granted more energy. By the time 8 pm hits, I am so exhausted lately. I have a hard time being productive. I know drinking coffee at this hour is not wise to get more energy. But don't we all wish we had more energy?! Ha! (But if I had a magic genie, that's what I'd ask for!)

We saw the Martian last week too and really liked it! It was only the 3rd movie we have seen in the theater as a couple so clearly we don't see many movies either ;) The book is really good, too!

I am glad you have a vacation + girl time ahead of you as it sounds like you need it! Moving is so much work and then adding uncertainty into it makes it even more challenging. I know you guys will get through this phase but please know you can always vent to me and I won't start sentences my saying 'well at least...' Or 'it could be worse...' Love you!!!

So excited to see you and I think this "vacation" is coming at a great time for you! I know what you mean about needing a wife! I need a husband as your Dad has not been able to do much since middle of July when he had ankle surgery. I miss his help so much and feel overwhelmed at times getting things done myself.
Your weather is too hot - it was 92 here on Sunday but Monday was 50 and extremely windy so quite the change! It turned out that it went down as the hottest day of the year here and also broke records for hottest day in October! It was actually 97 in Fargo! Crazy?
I love it that you enjoy your job and hope you can find one to match in in the months and years to come!
