While walking with my phone in the stroller cup holder it said “iPhone needs to reheat” with a little temp gauge. I feel for jake being put in this all day.

Let’s talk about the simple things that make life so damn good. 

1. Wine. A glass of wine at the end of your afternoon, it feels like a wash of deliciousness that makes everything else fade away. 
2. Hot showers. As a mama I’ve realized what a beautiful luxury a hot uninterrupted shower is. 
3. A clean refrigerator. It makes looking for your food so much more enjoyable. 
4. The ‘low battery’ warning. Stay with me here, it’s a really nice pause of technology to have to set it down & plug it in & forget about it for awhile.
5. Cheese & bread. Those two things exist, how can anyone be unhappy? 
6. Finding a steal. Is there a better feeling than going into a thrift shop & grabbing something so quickly (as if someone were beside you vying for the same thing) that feeling of pride that YOU found this amazing thing you had no idea you needed until that second. If you have not felt it, I’m sorry. 
7. Sleep. 
8. Music &.. Talk radio. My daughter will hate me for having my radio constantly tuned to public radio but, every parent can’t be the cool parent can they.
9. Getting a meal made for you. Yum, again it just feels luxurious.

Starting this weeks soup, split pea. Still in pajamas, listening to Sunday Baroque, little ones down for a nap & dad has a day off so naturally he’s stretched out resting. I couldn’t ask for much more.

Saturday.

Insanely exhausted. Feeling like the day is lasting forever. Baby is playing with the candles on the end table, apparently toys are overrated. Mama has no energy to try & divert her attention so.. I sit & stare out into the ceiling listening to jazz (prob not the best choice while I’m exhausted) drinking tea (again, best choice? Prob not).. Wish me luck on not closing my eyes for too long. Babies can’t take care of themselves

Banana bread face.

Banana bread face.

Baby lunch:: Greek Yogurt with raspberries, banana & a sprinkle of cinnamon & a side of banana bread cubes.

Dad’s coming home at night which means mama forcing sleep ins until 7ish are over. Hello 6 am, NPR, pajamas & tea in hand.

Tonight I’m starting Lucy early on Gwen.  God I love her. It’s silly how much. My inner 13 year old is doing backflips that she’s on tv, even if it is on the voice.
