More miscellany

Almost forgot to blog today! So how about a couple quick and random thoughts?

I put flannel sheets on our bed today. I love flannel sheet season.

We have no plans for Thanksgiving this year. No traveling, no company, no getting together with anyone, and I’m looking forward to it. We’ve been married 9 years and we’ve never done Thanksgiving alone. I might worry about making all that food for just the 6 of us, but Thanksgiving leftovers are THE BEST. So it’s possible I’m looking forward to that part the most.

I finished up Christmas shopping early (as I like to do) and mostly Will is getting Legos, because that’s basically all he wants/talks about/plays with. So obviously yesterday he tells Brian he doesn’t want any more Legos because he has too many already. Sooooo… I’m sure it’ll be fine. Every set he’s getting is one he specifically asked for. Also? He loves Legos. I think he was just momentarily distracted by the Target toy catalog. (He went through it pointing out all the things he “really super-duper EXTRA wanted.” Spoiler: that was everything.) But, this may be the last year that I can shop so early. These kids and their OPINIONS.

I got a new phone for my birthday. (Okay, they just happened to come out a couple days before my birthday, but whatever.) This is the first time I’ve ever had a NEW smartphone. The others I’ve had were hand-me-downs from family. I did not expect to love it as much as I do. Also? I expected it to feel huge (I just got a 6s, not a plus, but I had a 4s prior.) It doesn’t, but WHOA, now my old phone seems tiny! I…don’t know where I was going with this.

Sometimes, when the kids get out ALL the toys and we don’t clean them up I think, “Well, all the toys are already out, so how could it get any messier?” But it does. It ALWAYS DOES. How do children do this? Is it one of their super-powers?

Not that long I go a got an Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, and loved it so much that I went ahead and also got the Naked Smokey palette and you know what? Nice makeup is a GAME CHANGER. Also, as it turns out, 33 is the age at which I start thinking, “WHOA, I should not leave the house without makeup.” Now if I can just get lipstick figured out I’ll be all set. (I feel like lipstick always looks bad on me. Plus my lips are always dry. Does not help things look nice.)

My summer allergies (which were INSANE) have finally eased up which means I got to quit taking my nightly Benadryl. I figured this would help me not feel so tired throughout the day, but instead I just stay up too late because: no Benadryl to make me feel sleepy! It’s a problem. I need to be a responsible adult and start going to bed on time. (Spoiler: I probably won’t.)

  1. We always do Thanksgiving with just us, and then Christmas with family, and it’s delightful. Also, we buy the biggest turkey we can find and make huge portions of everything and then freeze individually sized meals. A bit of turkey and a spoonful of each side in a tupperware, then freeze. Then when we need lunches over the next few months we just defrost and voila.

  2. We did Thanksgiving alone last week because we were all sick. I LOVED IT!

    I really want to do it again this year, but I have a feeling we will be going to my in-laws after I run the Turkey Troy 5k.
