I can’t create a coherent thought lately, which means you get random today. And this post may or may not contain multiple references to our weather. I apologize in advance.
Speaking of weather (see? I’m sorry), did you know that Minneapolis beat Seattle in number of cloudy and dreary days last month (and we are on track to do it again in June)? We also had twice as much rain and much cooler temperatures. Just so you know what we are dealing with here.
Confession: I cried at the dentist today. Yep. Totally cried. Like tears running down my face cried. What am I? Six? I was getting some fillings replaced and the nice lady put the lovely gas on. Except I wasn’t really feeling it’s effects like I normally do, so I asked if they could turn it up. They said they did, but I wasn’t so sure. So the doctor (did I mention he’s cute? yep, cute doctor) comes in and gives me the novocain. Usually I can’t feel it. But today I noticed the poke, and then a major zing in my tongue that totally made me jump off my chair. Then the anxiety came, along with the tears. I’m not sure what came over me, usually I don’t get that anxious at the dentist. I’m blaming the weather for my emotional outbursts.
It’s the first full week of summer vacation and I can say that I have not missed the rushing around in the mornings. Slowly getting ready, relaxing on the couch with my coffee while the kids play, letting the kids eat breakfast whenever. I’m loving having them both home again.
You know what else I’m loving? SYTYCD. My husband did a pretty good impression of Cat Deeley last night. He sits and watches it with me. I love him.
I’m getting much more comfortable with seeing photos of myself. Maybe because I’m getting to that “I don’t care” stage. I’m 35 and I’m finally starting to not really care about what people think about me. Sure, I still get self-consious about certain things, and I’m still working on my insecurities, but if people don’t love me for who I am, well, I’m learning not to care.
After having the dark chocolate Ghirardelli chocolate chips the Nestle ones just don’t compare. And God knows with this weather I’ve had my fair share of dark chocolate, so I should know.
Today’s my dad’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Dad! Love you.
Confession: Sometimes the kids brush their teeth and then say they are hungry and then we give them ice cream and then go to bed without rebrushing their teeth.
Can we just talk about Etsy for a second? I enjoy Etsy. Have found some great stuff on Etsy. I’m all about supporting handmade, blah, blah blah. But don’t you wish Etsy had a “filter out the crap” button? It would make shopping on Etsy much easier.
We recently got rid of the desk in our office and made it a sitting room. We got two comfy chairs, one that sits right next to the window looking out the front of our house. It’s where I’m sitting right now, windows open, listening to all the neighbor kids play outside. Because it finally stopped raining.
I took these photos on the one nice day we had this week. Monday. It was gorgeous. Sunny and high 70’s and little E and I went for a walk with Leo and I could feel it. I could feel being filled up. I could feel the sun ooze through me and my mood was suddenly better. Isn’t it amazing how a little sun will do that? Praying that we get some more of those sun filling days here soon.
