Pssst … today I’m also over at Keeper of the Home sharing what a day in my life currently looks like!
Among other things happening in the month of September, I turned 34 on the 19th. This was the first year in a very long time that I didn’t build my hopes up to epic proportions for the day of, only to have them crash down in a big, messy pile of tears and self-pity. And it ended up being an okay day. Imagine that.
In the end of September, I’m into …
I finally finished A Year of Biblical Womanhood (Amazon had the Kindle version for $.99!) this month. I liked this book. A lot. I think it opened a lot of interesting doors for me to explore in the realm of Christianity. I like exploring.
I started What Alice Forgot per the recommendation of Sarah Bessey. I love it so far, partially because the story is very engaging and well-written and partially because the narrator of the audiobook version has a cute, perky, Australian accent. It makes me think about how I may have changed since I started my 30s and hoping that it’s been for the better.
New fall previews and football have dominated our TV-viewing time (which is very limited these days) this month. E actually records some of the football games on his computer and we try not to look at the scores (we don’t have the TV on when B and C are awake) so the game is a surprise. Silly, I know, but these are the types of things that get us through the long days. In our Hulu queue we have The Blacklist, The Middle (for some strange reason, I love this show – also, Sue looks pretty much exactly like me when I was in high school), Modern Family (I’m eh about this show, but E likes it), Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (which got a LOT better at the end of the last season), and then a few new ones: Manhattan, Forever, and Gotham. We canceled our Netflix subscription when we restarted Hulu so I have until October 6th when it ends to watch the entire third season of Call the Midwife, which they just added. So much to watch! What a horrible problem to have.
Jane Eyre. This is one of my favorite books, but I’ve never found a movie version that really does it justice. It usually just makes the whole story look like a really shy young girl falling for the first older man who shows her attention who ends up being a little psycho. Okay…that’s sort of what the story really is, but there’s so much more to it! This one wasn’t bad. But I think in order to really capture the book, the movie would probably have to be about ten hours long.
Captain America: The Winter Solider. Pure fluff! Also, Scarlett Johansson looks hilarious on the cover. 🙂
New feeds in my Reader.
Lunar Baboon. I subscribed to this after E showed me a few of his comics. I’m completely hooked now.
Coffee + Crumbs. I different kind of mom blog. Very honest and refreshing.
Twice! I’ve kind of become obsessed with clothing resale places lately, especially as I’m still working on losing baby weight but don’t have a lot of any extra money to spend on clothes that fit. I just got a box of clothes from them and the overall experience was fantastic. (I’m thinking a post about this is probably in the works. :))
And there you have the state of the Reb. 🙂
