Currently: Feeling Tired

Listening: Right now.. the sounds of a video game. I'm not a fan. Earlier... the sounds of the England Dan Spotify station my husband had going. That was soothing. This week... songs from The Greatest Showman continue to be stuck in my head. Especially A Million Dreams.

On the kpop front people in my life are texting me when they hear Mic Drop out in the wild and it's happening all the time! Have you heard it yet? If you do, I expect a notification of some sort! Let me know!!! :)

Watching: Well, Star Wars for the second time and The Greatest Showman. Survivor on TV ended awhile back. It was an... okay season. I finished Minho's terrible sad drama that was all about suicide and aired only days before his hyung (band brother) committed suicide. The timing on that was eerie. But he was awesome in that little drama. It was only two episodes long so more like a movie. Review to come soon.

Reading: I've been reading for the long lists for the Beehive Award and the AML Middle Grade awards. Which means I've been doing some awesome reading. The one I reviewed the other day... Eliza and Her Monsters was perfect. I loved it TONS. My big reading decision right now is do I re-read Ready Player One for book club.... hmmm..... But the trailer I saw for that movie made it look so very awesome. Looking forward to that!

Writing: AH! DON'T ASK ME THIS ONE!! Do you think I can give up sleep entirely so I can fit this back into my life?

Blogging: Can you see how awesome I've been this past week? Only missed one day since the new year!!! Go me! Suddenly, there's stuff to blog about! We'll see how long that lasts.

YouTubing: Oh man. The ride is a crazy one. We had our first video hit ONE MILLION VIEWS! And while it was only a compilation and not us on the video... lol... it was still a video on our channel. Yay. Other interesting things about YouTubing: hate comments, love comments, subscriber milestones, copyright claims, monetizing, working with a partnership company based in Korea... yeah. It's a fascinating ride.

  • We had a fun Christmas break. Got to visit with my daughter and her family. My granddaughter called me Grandma and so all is well with the world now.
  • It doesn't feel like Christmas/winter yet because there is still no snow. I know some of you would love to send us some and have less in your part of the woods.
  • The week before Christmas was a very trying one emotionally for several reasons. I'm still not over some of those events. Life is hard sometimes. I hate that.
  • Next up in life: help plan a little wedding. "Small Mom, we want small. Very very small." Yes, a little wedding. 
That's about it for now! Party on.


  1. So am I going to love The Greatest Showman? I’m nervous! I can’t believe it didn’t snow while we were gone. So weird. Congrats on your YouTube channel. I’m so impressed! I bet you never could have guessed how crazy it would get!

  2. I couldn't get past about the first 1/3 of READY PLAYER ONE. The world was interesting, but the story dragged and dragged. It was like watching someone else play a video game. No thanks! Lots of people loved the book, but I think I'll just watch the movie. Blasphemy, I know :)

    1. Susan: I enjoyed it. But I can't really remember that much.

  3. I've been on hold for Ready Player One for a month, and I don't think I'm going to get in time for book club. I might have to go buy it!

    I refuse to watch The Greatest Showman. CLOWNS!

    1. Kami: There are no clowns. There's the bearded lady, the Siamese twins, the little guy Tom Thumb, the black trapeze artists, the albino girl, some elephants. But no clowns. There is Zach Efron if you are scared of him. But he's pretty awesome really.

  4. p.s. I would like some snow too.

  5. I've heard some great things about The Greatest Showman, but I don't think I'll watch it unless I watch it at your house after it comes out on disc.

    And, that' exciting about planning a small wedding. :) Although, I know you're anxious about it because of who to and not to invite. Good luck!

    1. Jenni: Why won't you go see it? Are you scared of the nonexistent clowns too? :)
