Another month starting with another Currently linkup - awhoo hoo!  So, what does Anne have going on this month?  Well, come along & check it out!  :)

Documenting...not a whole lot.  I've been doing my nightly "Good Things" in my journal but that's really about it.  

Accomplishing...some reading.  Summer is my season to really read.  I do my parking lot lunches & read for a bit so I've been really tackling some books lately.

Enjoying...that my youngest is really learning what it means to work.  She got her first paycheck & came to an agreement with her dad that she would pay for half of a new trampoline.  She got a rectangular one which works best for gymnasts.  She's so proud of herself & I love seeing that in her. 

Reading...I am currently reading Now You See Her by James Patterson.  His books are my favorite because they are such short easy chapters & they are always good.  I tried reading Pride & Prejudice but didn't make it very far & I think that's because there was no murder &/or mystery.  Ha!

Spending...lots of time doing this & that.  There always seems to be something going on that I need to attend, mostly fun things but still takes it outta ya.


  1. I've been trying to document but it seems that this summer is just flying by! I've been really good about actually taking my lunch breaks and getting some reading done outside. It's my happy break! I hear ya with being busy too, even if it is busy doing fun stuff. I don't have a free weekend until the second week in August!

    1. Summer really is flying by, I cannot believe that it's almost mid-July already! But that just means that we are that much closer to school starting for the kiddos. Tee hee!

  2. Summer reading is my favorite! I've always loved Pride & Prejudice, but I can see that if you're in the mood for a mystery, it just wouldn't do :) I actually just finished The Jane Austen Project, which is a time-travel novel. Not usually my type, but when it's time travel to the days of Jane Austen, it turned out to be super fun!

    1. Oh, that does sound like an interesting read...hmmm, I should also suggest that to my friend that loves Jane Austen. Thanks! :)

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

True frickin' dat!  The old phrase "think before you speak" comes to mind.  I know that sometimes emotions get the best of us & we don't think things through before we let words leave our lips.  Sometimes those words can be hurtful, embarrassing or lovable.  Lovable doesn't seem to be one that comes to mind, I'm sure, but I remember the first time that Goose told me that he loved me.  He didn't think it through & those three lil words came flying outta his mouth at a birthday party in an old friend's living room.  I could not believe it but those words were already out in the universe.

I doubt that Goose would change anything now but at the time, it scared him to say those words & he probably would have thought it through a little better but, in that case, I'm glad that he didn't.

However, I'm really trying to get the girls to think before they speak & I tell them that once words leave their lips, they may have it off thei…
