I was going to try to do this link-up thing that Katie posted about last week, but I confess that I do not understand how those work, haha. How do you "link-up"??? I fly pretty solo on this blogging stuff because I don't want to bother anyone/ask questions/try to put myself out there like that. I'm such a loser. Maybe next week. But in the mean time, here goes my own version:
#1. I realized last weekend that I've only talked to my Mom on the phone ONCE since we've moved here. Johns parents are always saying that I never call them (like half joking, but not really) and I'm like, "no you don't understand, I don't call anyone." I hate it. It's not that I don't think about it, I think about it a lot like, "I should really be a good daughter and call my parents today...." but then I find 100 other things to do instead. I'm the worst.
#2. I had to buy new rugs this week because we dropped a pizza on one (cheese side down lol) and then last week Ted threw up on another one, and we just rolled them up and threw them out both times. Didn't even attempt to salvage them. I'm pretty sure we go through rugs way faster than normal. I think I buy new bathroom ones every time we move because it just seems gross to pack it up.
#3. I am literally the only one NOT pregnant right now (seriously guys, what is going on) but I'm still obsessed with baby names. I'm always writing down names I like, because I figure why not start now? So I found this app called Babyname (I sent this to Candace immediately lol) that's basically like Tinder for baby names. It's set up for two people to play, and you just swipe through names - right if you like it, and left if you don't. And when you both like them it's a "match." Anyways, I downloaded it and it asked me like FIVE times "are you sure you don't want to add a partner? This is meant for a partner?" And I was like, SHUT UP I JUST LIKE TO LOOK AT BABY NAMES!!
#4. I've been trying to be more conscious about buying organic produce (trying lol), so the other day we were making a corned beef brisket and John said he wanted celery and carrots in it. I already had celery so I used that (NON-organic) and at the store later I picked up organic carrots. Well, turns out the veggies were just for "flavor" and not really to eat (this is his special recipe btw) and I was like, shit..what a waste of an extra 30 cents. So I was like, "I'm going to eat the carrots actually" and they were so horrible. Like sticks of salt. But I kept forcing myself to eat them. Really though, maybe it was still better that way? Less pesticides/etc baked into the brisket then?
#5. Last week I was reading in bed and John was already like half asleep next to me, and I went, "gimme a kiss" and then he turned his head and I kissed him and afterwards I went, "good boy"....LIKE HE WAS A DOG. Like it was exactly what I do to Ted, hahaha. I waited for a second to see if he caught onto what I said, but he must have really been asleep because he didn't say anything. (Although now he will read this and know lol.)
#6. I don't know how to use snapchat filters? Like I really want to make my face into a puppy, but that's not an option for me. Why not? Does this have something to do with the trophies???
#7. I was reading a book this week to the little girl I watch, and I feel like this is totally the authors fault and not mine, but I kept messing some of the words up and thank God no one else was listening...like there was a character named "Thumperdink" and it kept coming out "Thumperdick." Just try saying it, it's hard.
#8. I use kids hair detangler. I figure kids have knotty hair so it must be better than anything made for adults. And also because it has "marshmallow extract" in it and I like the idea of my hair smelling like a marshmallow. I'm pretty sure I fell for the marketing scam there. That can't be a real thing can it??
#9. Not exactly recent, but a few more examples of my sugar problem. One night I woke up in the middle of the night, at like 2am and couldn't sleep so I went out into the kitchen to get a glass of water (this is supposed to help sleeplessness FYI!) and ended up eating ice cream. In the dark. Like, does it get more depressing than that? And then another day I bought rocky road ice cream for some reason (just a little one!) and then felt guilty about it, so decided to eat just the marshmallow part out of it and throw the rest away. Then in the same week I made really good banana bread, and after eating half of the loaf in one day I decided I needed it out of my life, so I ate the middle part (you know the gooey good part) and then threw it away.
#10. But, I do have a plan for this sugar problem. I've had enough. I just signed on to do something that's really scared me for a long time, and it's a seeeccret. But don't worry, I will overshare all about it once the time comes. Also if you notice I'm on Facebook....I'm on Facebook again. Maybe temporarily, maybe not, I don't know yet. I haven't had it in so long, I have no idea how it works anymore. It seems very complicated all of a sudden. True?
So there you have it. All my most secretive secrets spilled. (Just kidding, not even close lol.) I could be doing even more embarrassing things right now, who knows, I'm writing this in advance since we're driving to Michigan today for a long weekend. I am SURE I will write all about it next week.
