I spent a lovely day with family today. More on those adventures some other time (though, they involve sports, farm animals and the scrambler, just to give you a taste).
I was remembering on the ride home that some of the posts I take most interest in are posts where people just write random life tidbits… Which I do from time to time. But, seriously, this is a post of random tidbits that are not in the least bit interlinked. This works well for my kind of tired brain.
Last Sunday, I ironed the dress I wore to church and then work with a flat iron… Like one I would do my hair with. I would like to note that most of the dress wasn’t that wrinkled and that I do own an iron (just not in this city) and that the two irons on loan to me at this time were present, but by the time I noticed the wrinkles, the dress was on and I was in the process of doing my hair… Let the record show, I did not burn myself.
I finished reading Sarah’s Key this weekend. I would like to note that it was impossible for me to read this book in public… Because I cried the whole time. Seriously. I wept incessantly from about page 2 on.
This past Friday, I suspect I may have given myself a mild concussion throwing out trash. Picture early morning breakfast and lunch making, me powerwalking and a garbage can in front of a wall. Head down, straight into the wall… As if it wasn’t there and/or I was trying to plow my way into the next room… Felt the jolt clear to my tailbone. Patrick slept through the whole thing.
I am at war with our coffee table. It keeps attacking my knees. I keep failing to get out of the way.
I have had multiple conversations with my friend V’s cats. Something I have never really done before. I may be going crazy, but there is something strangely fun and therapeutic about the whole pet thing. They really play me on when they meow in response. Kind of like a real conversation… Kind of.
I get super excited now to come home from work and…. Watch Gilmore Girls. It doesn’t sound like much, but I love that show. It almost kills me that it is also make super time and also greet one’s spouse time. Because I am off work and GG is on. Don’t worry, I still eat and hang with the spouse. While watching the show. This is our first time with cable in 4 years!
My anniversary present came in a Disney Princess bag. And I was excited about the packaging. Just saying. One is never to old to love a good Disney princess.
Patrick and I went to Costco this week. I walked around in awe, kind of like a kid in Disney world. Not my first time in Costco. Always the same reaction.
So, there we go… Some random real life tidbits. Can you relate?
