Linking up this week with Hannah at Joyful Life for another edition of Currently – a quick, easy update on you life, right at this moment. Join our community!
T H I N K I N G || I’m really consumed by two overwhelming feelings this morning… Thinking about how wonderful it was to have Hubby’s grandparents in town (his dad’s parents live in Hawaii, are 87, and come to town once a year for two weeks) and how relieved I am that life is returning to normal since they are safely back home. Would we love it if they lived here? Absolutely! However, having them in town for only two weeks a year means that our lives revolve around spending as much time with them as possible while they’re here (as it should be!) but that gets exhausting with two kids thrown from their regular schedules and places and planned into extra family events, meals, etc. It’s wonderful, and a lot. We should just get them to move here!! Best of both worlds, right?
D R E A M I N G || This one is an interesting one. I’ll tell you about an actual dream that I had. I was in a group of girlfriends, and several f them announced they were pregnant. So I said I was too. I wasn’t. And that is what I dreamed last night. Ha!
O R G A N I Z I N G || We are still going on the basement/garage. I feel like every time I gain a little bit of ground, I have a few days where I just don’t have a moment to get to work down there until I am way too tired to consider it. One of the next items on my list is to go pick up some of those Rubbermaid (or comparable) bins to store some of the kids’ stuff (read: clothes) that I don’t want to part with, in case Hsu baby #3 (also read: not pregnant) needs them later. Anyone know of a place selling those bins on the cheap?
L A U G H I N G A T || EK has had some HILARIOUS kid speak recently. Strawberries are “raw-be-yeah”. Applesauce and apple juice are both “applesaucejuice” (it’s a toss up to determine which item she’s asking for). Water and swaddle sound the same. “Tee-tee shoes” is EK speak for “princess shoes”, also known as those plastic dress up shoes from T. J. Maxx. She wants to wear them everywhere and does not appreciate it when I tell her she can’t because she’ll trip.
R E A D I N G || Less and less every day… I know that’s sad, but I’ve been so busy. Hubby and I have both had some family in and out of town, and have been working a lot. Not to mention, you know, keeping house and raising kiddos. Ha. But seriously, I love reading, and I’m always sad when I don’t get to do it as much as I’d like. I’m also a bit sorry (and a tiny bit excited) to say the lapse in reading is also partially due to the return of tv shows in the fall. Gotta catch up with Jess and Nick, right?
What have you been up to? What’s going on in your life currently?

Go visit his grandparents in Hawaii! Maybe that could be your Christmas & Birthday gifts!!
I would LOVE to do that. It’s definitely in the cards… and hopefully before J is 2 (because at 2 they need their own plane ticket – yuck!) but we’d definitely have to plan that one and save up for a while.
Great post! I totally laughed out loud at Ek’s kid-speak! I love that! Hazel is always running around saying “Come on otter-bodys (everybody)” haha so cute! I totally get your feeling on when your hubby’s grandparents are visiting. It is definitely difficult to cram so many family events and have kiddos having the schedule disrupted every day! eek! I would be stressed! Thank you so much for linking up! always love reading what you’re up to!
Otter-bodys might be the cutest thing I’ve ever heard! Ahh! And I love linking up with y’all, too!
