A week or so ago, I was reading through my Timehop and found while I was working at Forever 21, I had tweeted a phrase that came out of my mouth while talking to a customer. That phrase was “currently right now,” and I felt it was an appropriate way to title this post since this month is making me a little disoriented. Lots of good things are going on, but it’s making for crazy at the same time.
So currently, this is what I’m up to:
Jamaica. We leave 12 days from today! I’m also looking forward to starting training on new software for work on Wednesday.
• frustrated with
My laptop keyboard, which just up and decided it didn’t have to backspace or return if it doesn’t feel like it. Also my DVR, because Madam Secretary didn’t start until 835 last night, so only 25 minutes of the show recorded. Also $29.01, which is what it cost to buy the season pass of Madam Secretary on iTunes, even though I was going to do that anyway. Also Words on Tour, which is an incredibly fun game but I’ve been stuck on level 105 for longer than is unembarrassing to admit.
(I didn’t realize I was frustrated with so much until I typed that all up.)
Words, like unembarrassing.
• stoked about
Getting water shoes from the girls’ section at Meijer for two dollars cheaper than women’s shoes. I realize $2 isn’t a monumental amount of money, but it was the principle of the thing. They’re a deep lavender color, which while not my particular favorite was infinitely better than anything else available.
Or I was, until my DVR recorded half an episode. And apparently episodes aren’t available on iTunes the day they air. Rude.
When I forgive my DVR and decide iTunes deserves another few dollars, I’ll resume watching Downton Abbey and Once Upon a Time respectively.
Strangely, the only thing I have successfully watched recently is the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars.
Sandusky, MI for a high school basketball game and MBS, MI to visit family. They were both fun excursions! The trip to Sandusky was my first visit to the thumb. It’s a beautiful part of the state.

I’m still wrestling with this. I know we can’t ever fully know our depravity, but recognizing it and acknowledging it are critical if we’re ever to appreciate and step into the mercy and salvation afforded to us by Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. How can we ever hope to know the fullness of that delivery if we don’t understand what we’re being delivered from?
What are you up to currently right now?
