November Currently

Thanks to the wonderful Super Sleuths Blog Hop, I have been getting back into my blogging groove (insert 70's music here).  Now, that I have my groove back, I need to get in some good content!  That will have to wait, because I feel the need to take stock and see what I look at what I am doing "Currently."  I am just hoping I am not like #400 on the link-up list!  Thanks to Farley for this great Linky!

Listening - This time change always takes me a few weeks to get adjusted.  I loved having the extra hour, but I feel like I am going to pay for it in the morning!

Loving - I absolutely love watching my girls in their activities.  We try to do only do one activity at a time.  For my oldest, it was softball.  Her fall season wrapped up a week ago.  They played a division up, so they were 3rd and 4th grade girls playing against 5th and 6th grade girls.  Their record had them in 3rd place at the end of the season.  For the tournament, they must not have liked that placement, because the girls went out there and won the whole darn thing!  First place in the tournament!  My youngest finished up her last football game that she cheered at on the same day as my oldest's softball tournament (always happens that way right)?  Then past two weekends, they have been competing for a chance to go to the state competition.  They did an amazing job!  Sadly, they did not accumulate enough points to make it to the state level.  To be honest, I wasn't sure if I was happy or sad about that!

Thinking - Yes, we are thinking about getting a dog.  We put our last dog down when my youngest was 3 months old.  (she will soon be turning 7)!  He was a golden retriever named Jake, and I fear I may not love another dog as much as I loved him.  I am sure I probably thought this about having a second child too.  Anyhoo, we are ready to try again.  We are looking to adopt, but taking our time looking.

Wanting - Today, I did it!  I have been thinking and eyeing personal laminators pretty much all summer long.  I bit the bullet and bought one today.  I love it!!!

Needing - I haven't gotten my hair cut since about last May.  My beauty lady (that's what I call her) will think I feel off the face of the Earth!  I have this natural curl that drives me crazy, and if I don't get it cut on a regular basis it loses its style.  Maybe now I'll have time with the girls having no activities!

A Yummy Pin - You know winter is coming when you have made your first batch of chili.  I made mine this week, and I tend to make a lot more soups in the winter.  One of my favorites is this recipe for Lemon Chicken Rice Soup.  It is delicious, but you have to double or even triple the recipe if you want any leftovers.  It is the best one I have found!  Click the picture to take you to the site.  You have to scroll down about 6 or 7 soups, but the recipe is there.  It is wonderful!


  1. Getting a new dog is rough! My parents put down our family dog due to a doggy illness over a year ago. They just got a brand new puppy. We were all nervous about how it would be with a new dog since we loved the other one so much. But it's going quite well for my parents (as long as they remember she's a puppy and not grown yet)! Good luck :)

  2. Putting down a pet is like losing a member of your family. It was so hard for me to put down my first cat (as an adult). My comfort comes from having new fur babies to make memories with!

  4. Hi! Hopefully you are adjusting to the time change. I stayed up late that night too : ) I hope the dog search turns out well. We got a dog a year ago and it is a bigger transition with kids. It took about 6 months to get into a groove.
