Why oh why do I insist on buying $3.00 coffee from Starbucks when it tastes like shit? (Even with shots of sugar free cinnamon dolce...) Ah, because they have a drive-thru and the other places in town do not... and they have organic chocolate milk that I placate my 2 yr child with (hey, it is 1% milk and it is organic...)
Why do I try to get my child to wear other shoes besides his "crocs"? Because I paid a lot of money for those other sandals but omg do they put crack on those crocs because my kid would sleep in 'em if we let him.
Why do I bother going to doctor for green snot? Hmm, well Matthew is not really sick but we'll give him some antibiotics... BUT it might be (ACK) allergies. Sniff sniff, what the hell? All those breast feeding books suck and lie about the benefits of breastfeeding and allergies... She says as she remembers the sleepless nights & the thoughts that this kid will be allergy free until he dies that kept her doing it...
Why did I just refer to me as she/her? Because I losing my mind and cannot wait to have a vacation.
Do you wonder if I am sticking to a weight loss plan as I have discussed multiple times here on this very blog? Well, even if you do not care, I am not sticking to any plan and, in fact, I am paying a lot of money for Weight Watchers but cannot seem to get my lazy fat ass off the couch to exercise and I am still eating what seems like a gallon of ice cream a week. Can we say "she is SO weak" together. I suck (and I totally dread the weigh in this week...) Oh yeah and speaking of organic - this week I managed to eat an entire box of organic peanut butter cookies... THEY WERE ORGANIC so they don't count, right?!
Why am I going to Canada next week? To spend QT with my in-laws, buy some Canadian shit for less (here's hoping the dollar is weak? Or strong... whatever - the one that makes buying Canadian shit cheap), go to the wedding of people I hardly know so I can chase my child around while my husband gets drunk with his old buddies and I can feel wildly uncomfortable and out of my element, I LOVE POTHOLES, AND (drum roll please) it will be cool there (58 baby! YAHOO FOR ME!)
How old does Matthew look to you? Because some lady at the doctor's office with her little baby and four year old daughter asked me today "so is your son here for his 3 or 4 year check up?" HE IS 29 months old, people. He is my BABY still.... holy shit. She followed that up by "my he is a big boy." She says wailing at the top of her lungs (She being me...)
Why am I so excited for the fall? Well, I love sweaters (oh you wait I will be bitching about the sweaters come January - I am fickle like that...), I love fall leaves - kicking them, playing in them, taking pictures of them (dammit I better have that new camera by then...), I like the smells of fall, I cannot wait to take a knife to a pumpkin or ride on the wagon to get the pumpkin (even though it makes my eyes red and itchy - freakin' allergies... ONE guess: I was NOT breast fed. Damn genetics and allergies...) and it will BE COOLER baby!
Do I love my new shirt from the Gap? YES. I have no idea what European fit means but this shirt made my entire week!
Why am I asking all these questions? Because I do not feel like writing about anything deep or important and it is FRIDAY, hip hip hooray!
What are you doing this weekend? I am cleaning our bathroom (have been saying that for weeks, I know...), laundry, packing, cleaning, eating (not eating ice cream or PB cookies, I swear...), working (because I am not working right now) and sleeping (oh please oh please oh please), ohhh and finishing Million Dollar Baby. What a great flick! But seriously what are you doing this weekend?
Happy Friday my friends!
