Watching The Good Wife. I watched it when it first started but haven’t for years. Boredom, Stockard Channing and Chris Noth got the best of me and I’ve started watching again – I’m satisfied. Also the Pistons – we love basketball.

Reading… I waited a month for a couple books to come in from a hold but they are apparently too popular. I ran into Barnes & Noble this weekend and Doris Kearns Goodwin’s The Bully Pulpit was $6. I couldn’t resist and am so glad I didn’t. I’m loving the book and it’s inspiring me to go back to the International Lit Project – I’m going to do the Middle East.

Listening to NPR. Not always easy but important.

Drinking too many Tim Horton’s iced cappuccinos. They built a new one on my route to work and I succumb. The sad thing is I don’t even love it but it’s cheaper than Starbucks and I really need the energy these days.

Buying this for Lucas’ room and I won’t even feel bad about the exorbitant shipping costs – it’s simply too perfect for the nursery. I also want to get him this for his first birthday. What can I say? I like to plan ahead.

Planning on some holiday fun! We’re going to the Detroit Zoo Wild Lights with Gina, Garrett and Cindel next month. I have two cookie exchanges in December and need to figure out if I want to go with the tried and true or be adventurous. My 10 year high school reunion is also next week – it’s crazy how time flies.

Feeling anxious. I suffer from anxiety but can control it very well. Nevertheless, it’s a frequent occurrence these days. So many life changes and sad news from the world at large is a little much. I’ll admit the string of violence has me on edge and I don’t really want Danny to go to the Lions game next week. I hate succumbing to the fear but I have so much too lose, I can’t imagine. My heart breaks for everyone who has suffered violence both at home and abroad. I hope we can find some peace.

Wishing I had more energy. So much to do and so little time.
