So I'm considering this a journal prompt even though it's not one of the Journal Day ones.  I figure it sparked my interest, and I haven't been writing, so I'm going to go for it and see what happens.

Doing:  Taking a lunch break.  I'm currently at work looking forward to the end of the day when I get to start a nice long weekend with my husband.  The rest of the day will be spent drafting a lawsuit and making some telephone calls.  Hopefully it will go by fast!

Thinking about:  The end of the day.  Seriously.  It is Memorial Day weekend so I get a 3-day weekend.  I'm thinking about all the things I could do over the weekend, like working on a blog post or playing some World of Warcraft.  I will actually probably end up watching movies and doing laundry.

Watching:  I watch a lot of TV, although it's sort of winding down now with summer coming.  This weekend I'm looking forward to watching Orphan Black, the mid-season finale of Mad MenTurnGame of Thrones, and Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing (now on Netflix!).

Looking forward to:  Saturday.  David and I have a tattoo appointment Saturday afternoon.  He's is adding/coming closing to completing a piece on his arm.  I will be starting something new on my right wrist.  I'm looking forward to the tattoo, just not the healing time.  It's my dominant hand, so that should make for some slimy shirts for a few days while I have the protective goo on.  It will go fast, and it is going to be totally worth it.  I really can't wait!

Reading:  I am currently re-reading the The High Lord by Trudy Canavan.  It's the last book in her Black Magician Trilogy.  I'm hoping to download and start reading the Traitor Spy Trilogy next, her sequel to the Black Magician Trilogy.  There are a bunch of books I have on my to read list that I just need to get my hands on and read, but I've been wanting to re-read some old friends.  I just finished re-reading the Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson, and the Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher.

Loving:  My husband, always.  My kitty, who has been more chatty lately.  The wine we've been enjoying: 14 Hands: Merlot (yes, it's a fucking Merlot, but it makes me happy).  Fleetwood Mac, they are my jam today.

Thank you for the prompt Sometimes Sweet!


  1. Hope you had a great, long, relaxing weekend! I'm done with tattoos but honestly I love everything about it, even the healing time. It's my constant, continuous reminder of my choice (whatever the tattoo is/means/represents) and I love the pain and itchy-anguish that persist that first few weeks or months.

    Love your "currently" post, look forward to more of them! :)

    1. Thank you Jade! I love tattoos, I finally feel comfortable in my own skin. I will admit I'm not wild about the healing time, but I seem to heal well so it's only bothersome for a small window of time-and it's totally worth it! Hope you had a nice Memorial Day weekend!

  2. Me too! My dad made a joke in the delivery room when I was born about me not being his kid because I didn't have any tattoos... it must have stuck in my psyche because it wasn't until I started getting tattoos that I really felt like I owned my own skin. :)

    Had a great weekend with my family - hope yours was good as well!
