Stream of Consciousness

  • My 24 week post is going to be late. I was going to write and post it tonight but I took a shower and got in my pjs and realized I didn't take a picture. I don't want everyone to see me on my pjs. I'm old fashioned like that.
  • Speaking of old fashioned, apparently, I was born in the wrong era.  I went to get a slip to wear under a dress this weekend and couldn't find one. Do people not wear slips anymore?
  • Evelyn keeps saying "where did it go?" Followed by "there it is!" It's freaking adorable.
  • So are her efforts with a spoon.

  • I think we've broken Evelyn of the night time pacifier. Now all we have to get rid of is naps. The pacifier that is, not the naps. Yikes.
  • I've been working on a blog post for a couple of weeks entitled "Getting my nerd on." It's proving to be much more difficult than I anticipated. But I'm feeling determined to make it work at this point in time. It may just take a little while. Julia's little upgrade is giving me even more motivation.
  • I feel bad that I haven't posted in a week. But none of the posts on the blog burner are done yet. Hence the stream of consciousness. 
  • I really want to post about our first big DIY house project, but it's STILL. NOT. DONE.
  • It's not done because we had to file a dispute with our credit card company regarding the cabinet we bought to add to our kitchen. We ordered it in August and still don't have it. Then they stopped returning our calls. Lo and behold, we heard from them the day after we filed the dispute. Shocking.
  • Speaking of battles, I still don't have any idea what is going on with getting my car fixed from SEPTEMBER. Someone driving a government vehicle backed into my car in a parking lot. Apparently, no one in our government knows how to file an insurance claim involving their cars. It's extremely irritating.
  • I'm currently obsessed with Starbucks hot chocolate. It's a good thing I don't have one very close or I'd be dropping a lot of money there.
  • It's even better that Costco has started selling their hot chocolate mix in a can. Delicious.
  • I just tried the cranberry Sierra Mist. It's delicious.
  • I plan on writing a blog post about unjunking my diet. Unfortunately, my weakness is soda. Soda is SO bad for you. But there is something about that bubbly feeling that is just oh so good. Why couldn't I be obsessed with apples or something?
  • I may just go to bed right now. Even though it's only 9. I'm so tired. We had our friends' Thanksgiving yesterday evening and I was cleaning house all day. I forgot how much my hips hurt while pregnant. It was a great time and so worth it though.
