Link up, link back say hi.
Disclaimer/1.: I'm feeling pretty uninteresting and underwhelming today, guys. It's been a really long week, I've pulled a muscle in my shoulder that's making breathing painful, and I'm a little distracted in general. Bear with me. I'm sorry.
2. I'm reading Gilead by Marilyn Robinson and am loving the writing but hating the fact that I just can't quite get into it yet (I'm about thirty pages in). I think it's the type of book that's best read in larger snippets that I'm currently able to commit to right now.
3. I know how fond I am of a senior class by when I start getting sad about them graduating. It's only September and the idea of June bums be out. Except the idea of getting to go on summer break. That part is fine.
4. The most recent song I'm over-listening to (and I think it's about drugs...? Or sex? Or both? And my son is pretty fond of it, too, so oops):
5. This weekend is shaping up to be pretty great. Saturday I'll hopefully continue my yoga class streak and then my mom will pass through town for a day or so. Sunday night I'm going to LA with a friend to see Mindy Kaling and then I'm taking Monday off because I have a podiatry appointment in the middle of the day. I might have to squeeze in a pedicure and solo-lunch date, since Sawyer will be at daycare.
6. I had a dream last night that I was at a tattoo parlor trying to get a unicorn inked on my body somewhere and the artist very doubtfully asked, "Are you sure?" And then we took a walk by a stream. I don't understand.
7. I tried an iced Pumpkin Spiced Latte, since I'm not a fan of hot coffee, and it was disgusting.
8. I almost never play games on my phone, minus a few word or trivia ones for short periods of time over the years, but I'm slightly (and I'm sure temporarily) hooked on Two Dots. It's so stupid.
9. Obviously you're all going to go buy these:
10. California passed legislation that starting in 2017 kids have to remain rear-facing in car seats until they're two. This makes sense, since it's easier repair to legs than spines. Sawyer is still rear-facing but I've been really looking forward to turning him around, since I think it will make longer distances easier. He's starting to understand what boredom is, and staring at a car seat isn't the most exciting thing. I give him toys and books, but that only helps for so long. I guess it'll be seven more months of seeing the back of his head, I guess!
