Currently

Hey y’all! I’m linking up with Mama Kat today! Yay, it’s nice to see her and her cronies again today. I chose prompt number 2.

2.) “Currently”. A simple list of things you’re currently feeling as seen at Sometimes Sweet.

READING

I’m reading two books right now. The first one is “Silver Lining” by Ann Goering. I love her books. “Silver Lining” is part of the Mother’s of Glendale series. I’ve been reading it for a LONG time now, because I’ve had a really hard time focusing on books lately. Reading has always been one of my absolutely favorite things to do, but like I said, lately I just can’t concentrate, I also have been more interested in watching mind numbing stuff on TV (read: my computer) then reading. But, I hope this trends will end soon. Yesterday I downloaded a book sample on my Kindle App. It’s a book by Charles Martin, who my Mom loves. It is called “Chasing Fireflies.” I read the introduction. It was *thrilling*! I will definitely be either downloading the full version, or finding it at the library today.

LISTENING TO

Well, quite literally, as I write, I am listening to Megan Hilty (of Smash and Broadway fame! Eek!!) sing “Blower’s Daughter” on Spotify. I’m glad I’m listening to music again. When I’m depressed I don’t really listen to music at all, except in the car. Friday night my depression passed, after five weeks of torture, and Saturday I started listening to Spotify again. Hurray for music!!

THINKING ABOUT

Everything! Seriously. Nothing is off limits. When my brain switches from depression to Mania my mind rushes all over the place. I’m thinking about: this blog, starting VBS next week, my friends, racism, the Trayvon Martin/Zimmerman case, differences of opinion there and where the truth lies, the Fine Arts Academy, what’s for dinner, Lizzy-Jane starting DANCE CLASS(!) in the fall, therapy, how to push through the exhaustion of PMS next month (so as not to fall into another depression), seeing Kristen Hedberg in Carousel Saturday night, exercise and many more things that are just dancing beyond the surface right now.

WATCHING

Ha ha! I watch a lot of stuff. I just watched “Kids React To Controversial Cheerios Commercial.”

You should, too!

At night, with my husband, I’ve been watching MI-5. It’s a BBC show that we watch on Netflix. It’s pretty good. A friend recommended it to me a while back. There are 10 seasons. I think we are still on season 2. It’s not as good, to me, as say Fringe or Alias or Scandal or The Good Wife, but I like it.

On my own I am watching “Orange Is The New Black”, also on Netflix. I’m really enjoying that. It is very vulgar, so if you are sensitive to vulgarity, don’t watch it. But, other then that it is very interesting and captivating!

BUMMED OUT ON

What? I don’t know. Umm…I’m bummed out that ideas and beliefs can be so polarizing, and that people often don’t listen to understand each other’s point of view. The Trayvon Martin case has brought this up most recently. So many people have such strong opinions, and I feel like I must be stupid or racist if I don’t agree. I truly want to understand all sides of every issue. And, I want to have love and compassion for all people.

LOVING

I love music. I love to sing. I wish I had more opportunities to sing.

My husband, he’s just so awesome!

My girls, they are the sweetest, and I’m so amazed that they adjust to my major mood shifts, with my Bipolar Disorder, so well. If I’m depressed, they are more than happy to sit in my lap, and be tickled, hugged and kissed, while I watch TV. Or else they play very well on their own. If I’m hypo manic or just feeling good, they seem to get excited about each new activity we try out.

    I have had Chasing Fireflies downloaded for a while now, but I haven’t started it yet. I guess it’s time to move it to the top of the reading list!

    1. Move it on up. I think it is going to be great!

  3. I can relate to the “bummed out on” section of your post. I too want to understand all sides, but I just don’t….and then I feel dumb, or judged on because I don’t. So, yeah, I get ya on that one!

    1. Cool! It’s nice to feel understood.

    Thanks for sharing, it’s nice to get to know you better. How excited is Lizzy-Jane to take dance lessons? 🙂

    1. Oh she is SOOO excited. She talks about it a lot. But it is hard to tell which of us is more excited; her or me.

  5. I love to sing! I do it in the car, loud and proud, when I’m by myself (which is best for everyone concerned).

    1. Singing is so good for you, whether you want other people to hear or not.

    I’m glad you shared that Cheerios video. Kids are amazing!

    1. They do seem to know more than us sometimes!
