It seems that 31 Days really messed with my mind. It wasn’t until I woke up this morning that I realized I’d completely forgotten to write my Wednesday blog post! I could blame it on election day, but really, that’s not going to fly, is it? If you know me at all, you aren’t surprised to hear that I spent my evening watching How I Met Your Mother reruns, not CNN.
Nope, I just simply forgot to write.
So here it is, day almost done, and the big heavy serious post I had scheduled for today seems a bit much. Hence, a list.
1. As you may have noticed in the picture above, Annalyn is learning to ride a bike. She spends about 90 percent of her time whining about what if she falls and this is scary and oh-no-oh-no-don’t-let-go – and 10 percent with that look on her face, saying, “Look! I’m doing it!” I love that 10 percent. [And writing this, I realize that it's been too many days since we got that bike out.]
2. If you were wondering, my haircut still looks awful and makes me want to cry. The worst part? Having the top part of my hair cut too short means the shimmery silver ones stick out all that much more.
3. I just turned off the latest episode of Nashville. That means I’m now two episodes behind. I’m just not sure I can commit to a drama so intense, even though it is Sooooo Gooood. Are you watching it?
4. We have been listening to Christmas music on a pretty heavy rotation for several days now. More on that [with a giveaway!] on Friday, but for now let me just say I’m not sure there’s anything cuter than listening to my kiddo belt out, “Mary, did you know?”
5. I finally got the latest book in Rick Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus series. I was so excited for this release that I re-read the first two books in the past month, just to be ready for the third installment. Yes, I do realize these books are written for kids.
6. Going to Target makes me want to BUY ALL THE THINGS. It’s bad. Everything they sell is so colorful and pretty and wonderful and I WANT IT ALL. So, I think I’m going to avoid that particular store for a while. Just until they come up with a 12-step program or pill or something.
7. Thank you for all your camaraderie and support for Monday’s post. In the doctor’s defense, I really do think he was joking when he criticized my parenting. And to put your minds at ease, he’s not our normal doctor.
What’s going on in your world? And seriously, should I stick with Nashville?
