Life lately (in verbs)

READING :: The Goldfinch for book club number one, and Lenin’s Tomb for book club number two. (I’m actually a 50-year-old cat lady/book club member who took a 24-year-old’s body hostage).

WAITING :: For Mike to take his boards Tuesday so that we can have a staycation and go for bike rides and take Latte for walks binge-watch Netflix and go see How to Train Your Dragon 2.

BROWSING :: Facebook and seeing my niece in a Fisher Price ad. Easily my favorite model — pictured in her oh-my-god-I-found-my-tongue stage.

A whole lot of people “like” McCorrie 🙂

CRYING :: Over math problems. I’ve been toying with the idea of going back to school at some point in the distant future, and a practice GMAT test told me that my math ability is stuck back in third grade. I forgot all about triangles and factoring and exponents … and it’s bad. Mike is trying to tutor me but I think I need my 13-year-old nephew’s help first.

LOVING :: Veep. I finished the three seasons on Sunday after starting the show an embarrassingly short time ago. And now, of course, I’m sad I have no new episodes to watch because I felt the need to fly through them.


SITTING :: In our new patio furniture for the balcony. I’m pretty excited about it and Latte thinks we got her a huge new toy in a shape of a cardboard box, so everybody’s happy.


MAKING :: New recipes, like Thai chicken quinoa bowls (Jessica can do no wrong) and this snickers brownie ice cream cake. Chocolate sauce got all over the table and counter during the assembly of the cake, and it certainly didn’t look as pretty as it did on Pinterest — but it tasted pretty darn good.
