10 Random Thoughts

Ok so it's been so long since I've updated the blog I don't know where to begin. Not because I have so much to say, but because I have so little to say. Yes, I'm busy but that's not the problem. If I had some pressing information to share it would be easier to make time to blog. Life is pretty boring right now - and I mean boring in the best way possible. Usually when we shake it up around here it's because of something not so good happening, so I'm happy to keep things quiet on the home front. What that means, however, is that the blog content is seriously lacking.

I do realize, unfortunate as it is, that posting about the fact I have nothing to say doesn't really constitute as a worthy blog post. So instead I'm going to post the first 10 things that come to mind. And I'm not going to filter myself at all...

1. All I can smell is the new essential oils I just bought. I've rubbed them all over myself and the kids for various reasons and man oh man do we smell lovely. The scent of the moment is black licorice. I really need to buy a diffuser (Note to self -- browse Amazon when you're done here).

2. My God I am frustrated with the Canucks right now. Losing 6-2 to Columbus? Get your s%$t together boys. You're stressing me out.

3. Ever since having the boys I've thought I looked old. I mean you probably do age a lot in the latter half of your thirties, but I thought I was particularly accelerated in that department given a few hard years that would rightfully age anyone. But then I saw this photo, taken less than two years ago and I wonder if I've been a little hard on myself?

I look at that and think "Hmm. Not so old". But do I think I look old now? HECK YES. So I wonder - in two years from now am I going to look back on a photo of me today and again think "Hmmm. Not so old"?? I sure hope so! (ps - Should I be growing my hair out again?? This picture is kind of making me regret cutting it all off!)

4. We had Indian takeout tonight. We rarely have takeout. Wow do I love butter chicken. What a treat!

5. I've eaten a brownie and a donut today. And I'm thinking about a second brownie.

6. I pretty much think we have the nicest house ever. Every time I walk in it I smile.

7. I've been introduced to a new drink called a French 75. Seems like a weird combo of champagne, gin, and sugar but I promise if you try it you won't be disappointed. I anticipate drinking a lot of it this summer.

8. I have the greatest, sweetest coworkers. I love the amount of laughter, tears, seriousness, silliness and hard work that all somehow fit into each day. Also, I've only been at work for 7 weeks but I already forget what it's like to not work. I love it.

9. I really need to write a post about the protesters near my house. It's been a post I've been writing in my head for about 4 years. Man will it take some mental energy to get those words down but I think it will feel good when I do. I guess stating it in this list kind of means I'm committed now?

10. My library book is due on Tuesday and I'm not even close to being finished. I can't renew it because someone else has it on hold so I have to do a lot of reading over the next few days. I hate when that happens, even though I love the book. It feels like homework.

Ok this was pretty much the stupidest post I have ever written. Ever. This is what happens when I don't filter myself. But at least it's something and I can dream up another useless post two weeks from now?
