The uncomfortable moment when you tell your work pals that you are writing a ballet and they LAUGH OUT LOUD for a little too long.  Thanks, friends. 

Personally I think it’s a fun venture and challenge for myself, but I think my cheeks will be flushed for the remainder of the morning when I think about it…

From time to time I log into my husband’s email account and send him messages from his future self. General tips and tricks to live his (/my) best life. I’m 99% sure he believes they are legit.

I’ve finally fallen down the Mad Men rabbit hole. My butt has been parked in front of Netflix during naps and after baby bedtime all weekend. Not sure if it’s because I love the show or because I was sick of not knowing what other people were talking about, but I’m hooked. See you in 2 months/70 episodes.

Sick kid

I’m home with a sick baby girl for the first time today. Even today with boogs all over her face she is such a fun, happy girl. I think it’s just a bad cold caught from her dad (who keeps calling himself “patient zero”…doctor humor.), but I know I wouldn’t want other kids at the sitters getting snot all over Marj if the tables were turned.

I’m hoping this does not become a regular thing (because I only have a few paid days to burn), but I feel so lucky to have a kid who has been so healthy and happy over the past year. And, I have to admit, it’s kind of nice to have an extra day at home to finish the laundry, etc I never really got to over the weekend.

One sick day and she is over a year old…not bad!

I ordered a “Protein Packed Quinoa Bowl!” at brunch today. I mean, it was GOOD, but I don’t even know who I am anymore.

I think I’m going to nap while M naps today, and I will undoubtedly be dreaming of perfectly season & crisped-to-perfection home fries while I do.
