Not In Jersey: Life, Currently Life, Currently - Not In Jersey

Life, Currently

Wednesday, August 3, 2016

A lot of bloggers write “currently” posts to update their readers on what has been happening in their lives. I have actually never written one before, mostly because I’m afraid I will be too repetitive of other posts, or if I want to do another similar post, it will be the same as the one before it! But I decided to try to write one anyway. Here is what is currently happening with me.

What I’m Remembering…

A year ago, we were on the ultimate adventure – a three week trip to Israel. We got to see so much and we also spent a lot of time with family.

What I’m Happy About…

That we got to have so much fun this summer. We took three trips as a family and I took one with a friend. The kids had fun in camp. Now, we need to make the most of the time left before school starts.

What I’m Worried About…

My father recently found out he has to have some pretty serious surgery. I can only hope and pray that it goes well! And then there’s the question of whether / when I should go visit him and help out my mom.

What I’m Annoyed About…

A few of my friends (well, two) recently stopped talking to me. It annoys me when I feel like I’m back in high school!

What I’m Looking Forward To…

Checking out a new park and spray ground that opened up nearby. I’ve been waiting for this! I also have some good ideas of where to go with the kids over the days we are home, and I am hoping they will be fun.

What I’m Dreading…

While the routine of the kids being at school is usually a good thing, the schedules in the beginning of the school year always stress me out! There is always so much going on that we have to organize. Plus I’ll have to start making their lunches again!

What I’m Loving…

The things Simon says. The other day he was asking me if when he grows up and is looking for a house, he’ll have to live in his car.

That Zachary plays tennis and swims and rides his bike.

That Gabbie is going to do competitive dance this year.

What We’ve Been Up To…

We just came back from a quick trip to St. Louis. Tonight Gabbie’s Performance Dance class is dancing at the Theatre In The Park!

What We’re Planning…

Swimming in a lake, seeing a movie, going to the county fair.

What I’m Watching / Reading…

I am still binge watching Pretty Little Liars. I have made it to Season 6!

We chose our book group book for next month – Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. I read one of her books and liked it and one that I didn’t like as much, so I hope I like this one!

What I Need To Do…

Blog about all of our trips! Get organized for school. Start going to the gym again and get motivated!
