Today is the 100th day of school here. When my older kids were in elementary school, they celebrated the 100th day, but they never wanted shirts. I think we did a few cereal necklaces with Fruit Loops or something. Rowan, however, wanted a shirt. She was pretty specific about wanting it to have hearts as well.

I have been missing in action for awhile. I had a very bad anxiety attack. I've been fairly free of serious attacks/depression for the last six years. It wasn't fun, but I'm back now and I have the tools to get better. With that being said, here is my week currently!

I kind of have a soft spot for my Currently posts. A little way to catch up, but sometimes the themes need to be changed up a little bit! So I'm going to integrate a little Sunday Lately themes with a few other bloggers.

I don't recall having many snow days as a child. We just don't get that much snow here in Kentucky. At least, we didn't use to have more than a few inches per year. The most I can remember having was around my junior year of high school. That did not stop me from doing little snow dances at any point that the forecast called for flurries.

Don't worry about the world ending today. It's already tomorrow in Australia. -Charles SchulzThis has always been one of my favorite sayings/quotes. I've seen it attributed to Charles Schulz, but I can't find any information that shows for certain that he wrote or said it. Doesn't matter, I still love the words.

This is what I am currently:
Doing | I'm trying to get the house prepared for heading back to work/school. Lots of laundry going on around here.
Thinking | I am entirely consumed with doing too much. Currently I am involved in three booster organizations as a vice president (band), secretary (soccer), and public relations chairperson (archery). I have recently also been volunteering at the elementary school every day. I became involved to be closer to the kids, but I'm so busy that it's causing the opposite to happen. I saw an increase in my anxiety in 2016, too much stress and not enough rest. With my two oldest entering their junior and senior years of high school in the Fall, it is time to step back.
Reading | Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J. K. Rowling
Watching | New kitty Damien and Nibbles. Little kitty cares not that the dog outweighs him by 35 lbs. Surprisingly Nibbles is pretty easy with him considering he's never been around such a small cat.
Eating | I bought some fresh sockeye salmon from the grocery store this week. I usually buy the frozen kind because it's cheaper (I paid $10.99/lb for the fresh on sale.) The good part about buying fresh is that the butcher cut the filet into even portions for me. With the frozen packages, you never know what size you'll grab out of the bag.
Weather | It's been rainy since last week. Still no snow.
Work in Progress | I started my first socks (AfterThought Heel Socks on Ravelry) with actual sock yarn! My mother-in-law gifted me with a gift certificate for Christmas and I splurged and bought 40" circular needles in small sizes from Knit Picks. I wanted to use the Magic Loop to do these because I can't seem to get the hang of using double pointed needles, always have laddering. I've done a couple of pairs of socks before, but they were made with thicker yarn. Of course, I'm still working on that baby blanket too.
