It’s been a few weeks since I was free on a Sunday night, but I finally am so it’s time for a stream of consciousness.
I’m exhausted. Like, so tired I am barely functioning. I blame this on the fact that we decided to watch The Hunger Games movie on Friday, (it was my husband’s birthday, no long loving blog post this year, though I love him, because tired) and stayed up until midnight. And then Eli got up at 7am (and 3am…), so I started out sleep deprived, then it kind of snowballed. Which is a fun pun since part of the lack of relaxation this weekend came from taking the baby to the snow!
For Valentine’s Day I reserved a spot for my husband (and me) in a couples cooking class. We’re doing the “Rajin’ Cajun” class in March and we’re both pretty excited.
I do not want to work tomorrow. Or Tuesday. I’m pretty okay with working Wednesday, but I’m dreading Monday/Tuesday to the point that I’m trying to discern how sick I would need to suddenly become overnight to reasonably get out of it. That seems like not such a good sign. I’m about ready to quit that particular job, but the problem is that I’ve agreed to work days for them until June and I have a hard time backing out of commitments, especially without any legitimate reason. So my current plan is to work for this company on the days I’ve said I would through July, and then switch entirely to my other (pediatric) job. I’m already picking up another half day in peds, and as the business grows I’ll be able to pick up even more, so hopefully I’ll be able to make up for the lost days in my original company with this other one.
There were a lot of pronouns in that last paragraph. Sorry.
My husband specifically requested cookie cake for his birthday. I was pretty stoked to oblige that. His mom actually also got him a raspberry lime cheesecake tonight and it was pretty good. I mean, it was no cookie cake, but it was still good.
I’m soliciting book recommendations. I finished the entire Hunger Games series (I have feelings about the ending of MockingJay) and read the latest in one of the James Patterson series that I like, but I’d like something new. To broaden my horizons. By which I mean, I’m looking for a book that is like the ones I already like- suspenseful but not going to keep me up at night. Easy enough to read, if it drags too much, I’m likely to quit. Anyone have a particular book/series they enjoy?
Have I mentioned yet that I don’t want to work tomorrow?
The baby is sick again. Just a cold, but he’s just so pathetic when sick. He rallied well today and was totally charming for my in-laws, but you could tell that there just wasn’t any sparkle in his eyes. Tomorrow he is staying home with my husband, who has the day off (salt in the wounds of my having to work at a job I don’t like right now), which is good for both of them, I think. Hopefully Eli will be better on Tuesday. He technically meets all the requirements for being at daycare (no fever, no vomiting, etc), I just hate sending him sick, even if he did catch it there.
My husband has taken to calling the baby gated living room the arena and making Hunger Games references, especially after locking Eli and at least one of the cats insides. These poor cats. The odds are simply never in their favor.
I was so excited to watch The Worst Cooks in America tonight, but I seriously almost had to turn it off after the very loud gagging by one of the contestants. Whoever edits these tv shows needs to understand that we never, ever need to hear or see gagging or vomiting. We just don’t. Ever. I’m talking to you, Biggest Loser.
And with that deep thought, I’m going to bed. Have a great week!
