currently v.4

Currently I am…

making: I haven’t started yet, but tomorrow I plan to.  I am going to make new curtains for E’s window and closet.  He pinched his fingers in the closet doors so off they will come and I plan to hang curtains in their place.  And I will make one to match for the window, but with some blackout material as well.  They will be no-sew curtains.  Bring on the hem tape!
listening to: The sounds of the trail.  I’m doing my easy runs on the Town Lake trail and I am not one of those folks who runs to music.  I like to pay attention to the thoughts that cruise through my mind (you can’t hear them when you have music.)  I like to hear the guy who plays guitar, the sound of the jogging stroller wheels in the loose areas of sand and the little snippets of conversation from passers-by.
craving: Food in general.  I’m training for a half marathon and all the miles make me so hungry.  I eat.  A lot.  Not big meals, but many snacks.  Chocolate chip whole wheat pancakes with vanilla protein powder.  Cinnamon-raisin sprouted grain bagels with organic cream cheese.  A smoothie.  All of that in one day, plus 3 meals.
writing: Facebook posts.  I started a group for the crunchy friendly moms in my friends list.  Once in a while I get some not so nice comments on my crunchy tidbits.  It doesn’t feel great.  So I made a cozy little space where I can spout my crunchy and not get my feelings hurt.  I am truly amazed at how these moms, who do not all know each other or even live in the same state, open up about stuff.  It’s pretty cool to watch.  I guess you could say I am doing more watching/reading than I am writing.
laughing at: Emmet.  He’s such a jokester.  and a climber.  Today he got quiet in the kitchen and as I walked around the corner, what do I see?  Emmet ON THE KITCHEN TABLE (Thank you very much daddy) holding his water bottle upside down so the water drips out…  I could not help but laugh out loud!
Emmet is…
making: Mommy tired.  He goes and he goes and he goes.  He is a beast.
listening to:  MGMT.  This is what I turned up very loud as we drove home from our dinner date yesterday trying to keep him awake.
craving: Meat.  He prefers meat to fruits, veggies and even bread.  Guess his little growing body just needs lots of protein right now.  Grow baby, grow! 
writing: A Father’s Day card for daddy.  We made one ourselves with construction paper and crayons.
laughing at: Me, when I lick his cheek.  Seriously, he laughs and laughs when I lick his cheek.  Think it’s weird that I lick his cheek?  Try licking your kid’s cheek.  Their reaction will totally be worth it.

    We have curtains on Kale’s closet door too! They are just plain, store bought ones, and I really want to make some with a better fabric. I just need motivation! I’m also a no-sew curtain girl!

    I’m interested in your facebook group…how do I get myself an invitation?

      You have yourself an invite! I’m halfway through the curtains. My biggest obstacle is kid-free time to work on them :) They may take awhile…

    I love that you have a crunchy group on fb! Isn’t it dumb how people can be such bullies on the internet? Also, I’m totally going to lick Hannah’s face tomorrow.
