Also, since we just published issue 06 of Spry Literary Journal, we had a backlog of submissions to catch up with, so I’ve been doing a lot of reading for the journal as well.
Listening: toÂ my “Work” playlist on Spotify. It’s so terrific, and I have a real hard time not belting out a tune in the office.
Excited: about celebratingÂ my 1st wedding anniversary yesterday with my husband. I feel so fortunate to be married to him. We’re going to see Daniel Tosh perform this weekend, and that’s something else I’m quite excited about. Keep your fingers crossed that I don’t pee my pants from laughing too hard!
Watching: Orange is the New Black, Grey’s Anatomy Season 11, Wentworth
Wearing: dresses, lightweight maternity clothing.
Wishing: for a healthy baby. I’m really not wishing for anything specific besides that. Everyone wants to know if I’m ready for pregnancy to be over (5 weeks left), but I’m really not. I enjoy feeling her move around inside of me, and overall, I’m feeling pretty great. I just want to enjoy this as much as possible. In the same regard, I’m still super excited to meet her. I just hope that she is healthy as can be.
Drinking: Same old drinks: orange juice, cranberry-grape juice, or water.
Loving: this season. Most of the days have been incredible. Quite warm with a nice breeze.
Loathing: When my feet hurt from carrying this extra weight around or when I get super sweaty because of being pregnant and the summer weather.
Admiring: Wolverine. He did a great job in his first season of Little League. He also did a great job as a student in 3rd grade, which is soon to come to an end. He’s such a great kid, and I’m so fortunate to have him in my life.
I realized that I can tell people I’m having my baby next month when they ask. How did June come so quickly? Plus, we’re already halfway done. Yikes â€“ what about you, friends? Â How is your month going?
