Random Stuff About Which I'm Thinking

Just some random thoughts on this glorious weekend.


  • I'm happy about the outcome of the election because my Nuva-Ring is free and shall remain so.
  • L.E. has been anti-sleep again and it's starting to wear on me.
  • My first week of full-time work was good but exhausting.
  • I've made a plan to find a different event with a bouncy house every weekend. Yesterday, it was here.
  • I'm making deviled eggs but Dr. T would rather have egg salad. Either way, I get to play with hard-boiled eggs.
  • I don't have a doctor in Austin and my anti-depressant RX ran out. So I'm starting to taper off. I hope it helps with my memory because I never remember anything because of those pills.
  • L.E. keeps eating things she finds on the ground at the park.
  • I worry my Reno friends have forgotten about me.
  • I love tacos.
  • I just finished reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It's set in Pittsburgh in the early 90s, when I was the same age as the narrator. This part is my favorite:  As you enter the tunnel, the wind gets sucked away, and you squint from the lights overhead. When you adjust to the lights, you can see the other side in the distance just as the sound of the radio fades to nothing because the waves just can't reach. Then, you're in the middle of the tunnel, and everything becomes a calm dream. As you see the opening get closer, you just can't get there fast enough. And finally, just when you think you'll never get there, you see the opening right in front of you. And the radio comes back even louder than you remember it. And the wind is waiting. And you fly out of the tunnel onto the bridge. And there it is. The city. A million lights and buildings and everything seems as exciting as the first time you saw it.
This is what he's describing

  • L.E. is going through the worst possible phase: all she wants is her daddy. That's the most heartbreaking thing for a mom with fragile self-esteem. 
  • I need to get my sewing machine out of the shed.
  • I'm excited for our trip to the beach over Thanksgiving weekend. I know people say Texas beaches are awful but to me a beach is a beach. Plus, it's November.
  • Is it possible that PTSD can occur after ordinary life events like having a baby and moving to a new city?
  • I need some new clothes.
  • Argo was a great movie.
  • I need some barbecue.
  • A lawyer penned her resignation letter as a day-in-the-life-of and it's gone viral. My conflicted feelings on this should definitely be an upcoming post.
