I’ve decided to move these posts back to mid-month, at least for a little while. In the past two months I felt like I was just repeating myself between this monthly post and my pregnancy update which usually was shared within days of each other. Maybe after the baby comes I’ll move this back to the end of the month – who knows?
Reading: Similar to last month, I’ve spent this month reading submissions for Spry Literary Journal. We hope to publish issue 06 sometime next month, so as you can imagine, I’ve been engrossed in the fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry and flash of writers from around the world. I honestly think this will be a very exciting issue, and I can’t wait to share it with you.
I haven’t done any reading for fun this week. I’m behind on the baby book I’m currently reading, and I just got a book from the Postal Book Club that I’ve been dying to dive into. I just haven’t found the chance yet.
Listening: semi-listening to the radio. There’s just been so much junk on the radio lately. I feel as if I keep getting commercials on every station, and I need to do something to change it. I started listening to podcasts again this week, and I’m hoping I can incorporate that more into my daily practice, rather than just listening to songs I don’t even like that much. I also brought my huge mix CD binder out to my car, and I’m hoping to listen to some oldies, but goodies soon.
Excited: that Wolverine’s baseball season begins this week. I love watching him play baseball, and I can’t wait for the games to begin.
Watching: most of the shows I actually watched on television have just ended for the season, so now it’s time to catch up on Netflix and Amazon Prime. I’ve been watching my way through this list of 10 true crime documentaries, and I definitely recommend that you do the same. So far I’ve watched “Dear Zachary,” “The Central Park Five,” and “Crazy Love.” If you’re only going to watch one of these videos, make it “Dear Zachary.” Whatever you do, don’t Google or do any research about the film before watching it. The movie is utterly heartbreaking and it moved me in a serious way. It’s a must watch.
Wearing: all maternity clothes. I can’t wait until I can break the dresses and flip flops out. I’m sure it’s coming real soon.
Wishing: I’m not too sure that I’m wishing for anything. I wish for fun snacks sometimes. I wish for beautiful weather. I wish for naps, though I never take them. That’s about it. My biggest wish is that this baby I’m growing remains healthy. I also wish my friends and family stay healthy as well.
Drinking: Water with lemon, orange juice, cranberry raspberry juice, regular water.
Loving: the weather. Spring has finally sprung. It’s mostly beautiful outside all the time. Even the colder days still feel so hopeful. I know it’s been over a month now since the time change, but I simply adore how light it is at night. This is my favorite time. I just feel so positive and pumped up.
Loathing: Bad drivers.
Admiring: my best friend who is due to deliver her second baby within the next month. Technically the baby is scheduled to come via c-section in the second week of May, but there is a very good chance she’ll deliver beforehand. The same thing goes for my blog friend Becky. I think the final month of pregnancy is so tough, and the waiting is excruciating. I can imagine that it takes so much patience to be where you ladies are, and I just want to give you both a virtual high five.
How is April treating you, pals? I hope you’re able to enjoy some of this spring weather!
