I am currently. . .
Thinking about: my messy house! Okay. It's really not THAT bad. BUT, after my first week of my first semester of college, I have definitely put my homework first. I have a bit of housework to catch up on as a result. I will find my balance, though. At this point, I do not anticipate this becoming too terribly overwhelming to juggle. . . I am relieved, because I was worried that would not be the case.
Reading: I am still reading “Dragonfly in Amber” by Diana Gabaldon, but now I am also reading two technology-related books & an algebra book, along with various readings related to the history of women in America. It's interesting how your reading expands when you become a college student, eh? Plus, I will have to settle for the fact that my recreational reading will take me much longer now, as a result. That's okay. It'll be worth it. 😉
Trying out: two new things! First, a friend introduced me to a fantasy football league to try out. I have never participated in one & I will have quite a bit to learn. BUT, she assures me that it is super fun & that she doesn't know all there is to know about it either & that the league she invited me to will not be aggravated by a newbie such as myself trying to participate. I am hoping it proves to be fun! I am still bummed that I won't be able to regularly watch my Seahawks since we moved, so maybe this will alleviate that at least a bit.
The second thing I'm trying out is a blogging challenge. It's one of those post-something-every-day-for-the-whole-month types of things, but she gives prompts that appeal to me. Some of the posts might be more trivial than my usual, but it should be a ton of fun & open the door to “meeting” other bloggers. If it ever doesn't seem fun, I'll know it's not for me. I've never attempted such a thing, so we'll see what happens. . . Maybe I will make it two days, or maybe it'll be ten or twenty — or the whole thirty days! It should be fun finding out, though. 😉
Thankful for: the handsome husband. I know this is nothing new to anyone who knows me or has read just about any of my posts. BUT, it will always be worth mentioning. I didn't really think I would marry — & I think the main reason for that is because I felt that I would have to settle to make my marriage last & have it be worth being “forever.” I didn't want to be one of those women that has two or three marriages. . . I didn't think that the right man for me was really out there & I wasn't going to settle. There was no settling with the handsome husband. He truly was made for me & I for him. He works his ass off & still takes a moment here & there to make me feel loved & important. He is my best friend & my partner for life; if I wasn't sure of it, we wouldn't be married. . . Definitely something to be thankful for every single day.
I think that's a good note to end on, so I will keep this short & sweet this week. 😉

This post was written in participation of the Currently link-up over at A Mama Collective AND as my initial post for the Blog-tember Challenge over at the Brave Love blog, (although, my “Who is Reta Jayne?” page more-closely meets the writing prompt for September 1, so you can always pop over there to “meet” me!). 😀
