Catching you up on things since December of 2012 would not only take too long but it would also make you feel awful about yourself. Unless of course you’re also living with two kids under 4 in your in-laws home with a full-time job and a full-time desire to crawl in your bed and sleep for days and/or binge watch reality tv. If that’s also your life, then virtual high five to you, my friend. In the words of the illustrious pre-Kimye Kanye West, “welcome to the good life.”
If you aren’t, well, then I’m sorry. You can’t begin to imagine what you’re missing out on.
I’m currently obsessed with Jason Good. You probably read his post listing the reasons his 3-year old might be freaking out. It’s hilarious, and if you haven’t read it, go read it, but preferably after you finish my post so you still think I’m quasi-funny. If you go read any of his posts, and then come back here, it’ll be a major bummer as you realize I don’t hold a candle to his level of hilarity.
In the spirit of his new book, This Is Ridiculous, This Is Amazing: Parenthood in 71 Lists, I decided I’d update you on my happenings with a list of things that describe my life since my last blog post.
Side note: nobody knows me on the interwebs and I won’t make a dime if you click on any of those links. I just really like funny people.
Words that describe me right now:
- “me,” “mine,” “no”
- good at pinning articles about organzing on Pinterest
- no free space
- no free time
- procrastination (per usual…)
- bear hugs
- potty words
- movies in the car…and not just on long trips (after saying I wouldn’t let my kids watch movies in the car unless it was on a long trip)
- eating my own words
- re-writing song lyrics for my co-workers
- is this list just supposed to have single words?
- putting books on my Amazon wish list
- starting books and not finishing them
- obsessing over Elizabeth Gilbert
- HIIT workouts
- toddler’s picking out their own clothes
- being told I have RBF (resting bitch face)
- six word memoirs (go check this out! such a cool site)
- MY six word memoir: Frozen knows best: let it go.
- working on letting it go
- working on figuring out why my car smells every other week
- forgetting to pack SOMETHING for daycare
- missing writing
