Oh man am I tired. And I am writing this on Tuesday evening so all I can think is “it’s only Tuesday?!” But when you are reading this it will be Wednesday, so at least there is that. I am not tired from lack of sleep – there is lack of sleep, but we’re managing quite nicely. I am tired from all of the do-ing. The mental strain of excel, of active listening, of being effecient, the mental strain of using my mouth to form words, you know how it is. Thankfully there are some really excellent things happening at the same time. So let’s cling to those, shall we?
When Gabe clings to my clothes. Oh man, the joy.
Game of Thrones. When this season is over I might possibly cry a little.
The sound of wind in the eucalyptus trees. They sound like ocean waves.
Friends, even when they are far away, and surprise gifts (Thank you Amanda and Sarah! You both made my week!!).
On Monday while I walked to the train all I could think about is how much I want another baby. This makes me happy. I worried that after the meh pregnancy I would be dreading my next go-around. But I’m not! I am thrilled! I would do it tomorrow if my rational mind wasn’t all “girrrrllll please” about it.
Kamel. As much as he does drive me totally nutso some days, I am incredibly grateful for his partnership. I will say it again and a million times more: I could not do what I do every day without his support. I could not be as successful as I am or as put together as I seem without him.
An old standard – Clean Sheeeeeeets! They will always and forever be one of my biggest small joys.
Gap V-neck tshirts. Oh! And the $10 t-shirt sale. Yes and yes.
Eyelashes. They are pretty great.
Pedicures! And brightly painted toes!
Trader Joes and their generic brand beer. So delicious. So the same as the brand name. So so much cheaper.
Being able to write this as Gabe chirps and wiggles next to me. (While I sing the Game of Thrones intro music, let’s be honest.)
**What are your happies? Let’s get through this Wednesday together.
