Anyway. Here's a little update on what's going on around these parts.
Making :: A lot of pretend birthday cakes with Mac in his play kitchen. It’s pretty adorable, but he’s not that good at sharing (even pretend sweets). Perhaps he’s just trying to save me from all those pretend calories.
Drinking :: So. Much. Coffee. Mim’s decided that she no longer needs to sleep at night. And neither do we, apparently. We need to work on “making good choices” with her. 4:00 a.m. wake-ups are not a good choice, Mimsy.
Reading :: Nothing! Because who has time for that?!
Planning :: Mim’s baptism. God bless her soul (or hopefully he will sometime in the next few months).
Wanting :: A five-hour nap. And a foot massage. And a chocolate cream pie.
Looking :: A bit like a butch poodle today. I curled my hair (poorly) and thought a flannel shirt was cute/casual. Uh, no.
Playing :: Lots of podcasts these days. Favorites include Serial (obv), The Longest Shortest Time, Startup, This American Life, Criminal, Freakanomics and Mom & Dad are Fighting.
Wishing :: My “To Do” list would just magically complete itself. Are there such a thing as Chore Fairies?
Enjoying :: My last few days being 35. Ugh.
Missing :: A particular friend that’s been on my mind a lot lately. I really need to work on being a better friend.
Waiting :: To get the flu. Everyone has the flu and it feels like an inevitable plague that we know is coming and can do nothing about. So much hand washing and Germ-X.
Wasting :: Lots of time thinking and worrying about getting the flu.
Wondering :: If my child will ever not have a two-plus hour long meltdown on days he goes to nursery school. He does great once he’s there, but the crying and begging me to let him stay home (along with all the tears and the “please”s) nearly kills me.
Bookmarking :: THIS article, and THIS article and THIS post. For someday when I have
more any time to read.
Loving :: This little black dress from my girls at Buckley K. I’m wearing it to my fancy birthday dinner date-night with the hubby this weekend. More photos of the dress (and a discount code for you!!) coming soon to the blog.
Marvelling :: At just how beautiful my kids are. I know every parent feels this way, but damn these kiddos are cute!
Needing :: About six to eight more hours in every day to get things done.
Noticing :: That I can’t even remember the last time I had a dream at night. Maybe not since I was pregnant with Mac. Does being a mom mean that I sleep so lightly now that I don’t dream?
Worrying :: Still about the fucking flu! Perhaps THIS is why.
Feeling :: Like everyone is pregnant and I kind of want to be too. (I did not just say that.)
Thinking :: That I've lost my damn mind.
