I'm baaack! Took a little break from blogging, getting caught up in my latest saga--broken bone #2. Yep, I'm back-to-back on year #2 of a broken appendage. Ugh! But, I'm here again, inspired by one on my favorite bloggers, Farley. I'm linking up with her monthly Currently from Oh Boy, 4th Grade!
Listening: I'm a total Real Housewives of ANYWHERE junkie. My husband is a little concerned with my addiction, thinking I envy the ladies on these shows. But NO! No envy here--just an escape from my day to day bump and grind, sitting here in my same ol chair until I can heal this leg of mine. Who's your favorite housewife from Beverly Hills? Right now, I'm really relating to poor Yolanda. She's struggling with Lupus and is housebound, so I relate to that in a big way. I also love her Dutch heritage and unpretentious style. Here are my other favorites from the other locations: New York: Dorinda (such understated style), New Jersey: Caroline (wise and sane), Atlanta: Nene (she cracks me up!!), Orange County: Shannon (but I want her to bail from that husband!)
Loving: My husband and kids got me a treat...Philosophy hand cream. It feels like such a treat to put on my tired hands. My hands are swollen and calloused from walking on crutches for 2 months, so it really was such a nice surprise. Amazing Grace is the prettiest scent.
Thinking: Always wondering how my class is doing while I'm off. I miss them!
Wanting: I am SO desperate to walk again. It's absolutely maddening to be non-weight bearing for months. If you've broken a leg/foot bone, you know exactly what I'm talking about. It's funny, but when my family takes me out in my wheelchair, I get stopped constantly by well-wishers who have lived what I'm living. They all want to share their stories of when they were in my situation. It's a camaraderie type of thing. I think I'll be like that once I'm healed. I'll want to tell anyone with a broken leg that they will survive and be ok.
Needing: A vanilla banana smoothie delivery. My dad is bringing me one today--yay!
Real or Faux: Real this year! We are supporting our old Cub Scout Pack by getting a real tree from their fundraiser. Should be pretty and smell good!
Happiest of Holidays to all of you!
