Reading: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies...I know. Where did my love for dark fantasy fiction begin? I used to be a die hard Sparks, Picoult, Grisham reader, but these days, I'm craving fantasy. What's even better is that I read Pride and Prejudice fairly recently, so I remember the style and humor of the original quite well. Makes the zombie version even funnier. I'm also a big fan of nonfiction these days; I just finished A Night to Remember, which is the story of the sinking of the Titanic. It was an Amazon Daily Deal for the Kindle, and I went through a Titanic obsession phase back in the day. Definitely worth $1.99.
Watching: stupid daytime talk shows. I spend so much time on my couch nursing and holding Colin while he sleeps that I now have a talk show for almost every hour of the day between 10 AM and 3 PM. How sad. However, I like The Talk better than The View.
Working On: a new dress for Cara. My mom brought me the cutest pink paper doll fabric that she found in her stash, and I have been debating over the style of dress that would suit it best. After I got a good look at the size and shape of the piece of fabric, I decided to make another Tea Party Dress. I started cutting it out yesterday, but my moments to myself are brief right now, so this project will probably take me a while.
Thinking About: how I am going to manage getting to school on time with two babies. When Cara was an infant, I was up pumping at 5 every morning and I spent almost every break at work pumping, and the thought of going back to that schedule makes me feel like throwing myself a pity party. It was a pretty exhausting schedule to keep, so I'm brainstorming ways to make things easier when I go back to work. I'm open to any and all suggestions.
Anticipating: the day Colin figures out what his eating/sleeping schedule is going to be. Things are sooo up-in-the-air hit-or-miss right now, and it's driving me bonkers. Some days we have three hour naps and some days we have 15 minute naps. Sometimes he can go 3 or 4 hours between feedings and sometimes it's an hour between. He's only four weeks old, so I'm not really expecting a definite schedule for a few months, but Cara is so predictable these days that I had gotten a bit spoiled.
Listening To: NPR or the white noise app on our iphones. White noise is like baby sleep magic at night.
Eating: delicious meals that our ABF at church has been bringing over. Seriously, I have not had to cook since Colin was born four weeks ago. I can't tell you what a blessing these folks have been to us, not to mention that they are some darn good cooks.
Wishing: for 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. I know it's not going to happen right now, but a girl can wish, right? :-)
PS--I totally stole the idea for this post from Danielle.
