Random (Talk to Us) Tuesday – Just thinking (a dangerous thing to do)


Seriously Shawn

Arggh! Itchy eyes! Allergies, be gone!

  • I am, sadly, listening in on this Zimmerman trial. So far, the attorneys are full of shit and I kind of don’t care. But I know I’ll keep watching/listening. It’s a nice distraction
  • So I have roughly 6 weeks until my due date and… no one has given us a baby shower. Now I know it’s my third child and all but it’s a girl so everyone was SO excited about new things. It’s a tricky thing, these showers… A friend of mine said she’d put one together but then two of our other friends moved and we’re all so busy… Then my boss said she’d do one here on campus but I can’t, like, remind her about that, you know? All I need is a couple car seats!
  • I have a cousin who always beats me at Words with Friends. I’d like to say I am pretty good but man, she creams me every time.
  • Since we’ve finally jumped on the Game of Thrones bandwagon, it’s pretty much all I want to do in the evenings. I am pretty much too exhausted to do anything else. I have grand aspirations of working more in my house once I get home from work but it never happens. I honestly need about an hour in the AM at home to clean and THEN go to work.
  • I’m to the every two week appointment stage of this pregnancy. I got a confirmation email about my next appointment and I’m like, wasn’t I just there, giving you my forty bucks?
  • I probably won’t comment on the blogs of people who left me comments yesterday so this is my thank you. I am just so busy at work.
  • Elliot had a couple loose-ish teeth last time we went to the dentist but he really helped one along last night eating one of those candy bracelets. He suddenly started crying and there was some blood and I guess the hard candy really jarred it. He was excited at first but when eating breakfast this morning and it hurt, he complained that kids shouldn’t have to lose their teeth. LOL.
  • I realized the other night that I haven’t felt reallyย excited about anything in a while. The kind of feeling I used to have before a big event or when a new book came out. It’s probably just a result of being older and having so many other things going on in life. I look forward to things, sure, but there’s this one emotion of anticipation that is simply missing. Do adults still get those feelings? Every now and then I catch a fleeting glimmer; sometimes I’ll imagine photos we took from last year or a time when things were really good. I can remember them exactly and how it made me feel… just for a brief second.7510850602_a1180363a7_c7577621468_5a2eed5f22_c8106887209_9f1ec00fdd_c
  • Maybe it is only memories that can really inspire me anymore. And I guess that’s okay.
  • As a closer, and on a more happy note, I am crafting a post about products I have tried lately and loved. Unlike me in most ways but been brewing for a while. Peace out!

  1. Those last uncomfortable days before the baby comes. Some would say magical, I say time served–enjoy what rest time you can get!

  2. I know what you mean about that “excited” feeling – I get it before a fun event, or going to see a movie that I’m super-excited about… I haven’t really felt it lately either. But I do think there’s still promise for it in the future… I don’t think just because we grow up, we lose it. It’s just maybe a little harder to come by because there’s so much else going on. At least, I hope it’s still out there!!

  3. Oh man! If I lived closer to you, I’d totally throw you a baby shower. And if I had any baby stuff left, I’d send it to you. Do you want any of Princess Nagger’s 4T and 5T clothes for the future? As I’m getting ready to purge and pack, I know I’ve got tons of clothing of hers from 4T to 7/8 that she’s outgrown and I’ve not the time to put them on eBay, so if you want some, I can put together a nice box of the cutest clothes of the bunch before I donate the lot to Goodwill. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Lemme know!

    I stopped playing Words With Friends because I lost Every. Time. I’m a glutton for punishment on Scramble, though, because I keep playing (and mostly losing). ๐Ÿ™‚

    I do get that feeling of excitement, but it’s very rare and only when something really exciting is going to be happening. I think it does mellow out as we get older…maybe we should revisit the whole excitement thing and GET excited just for the hell of it! ๐Ÿ™‚
