Hello…is this thing still on?
I had a bit of an unplanned bloggy hiatus this last week. To you three loyal readers, I can assure you that it wasn’t intentional. Life has just been busy (all good things) and I had to put ye old blog on the back burner.
Gratuitous e-card because this made me laugh and basically sums up my life lately. God bless coffee. God bless wine.
I mean, I took this screen shot last week because I had not one, but TWO different alarms on my phone one morning and I had pressed snooze on both of them. I know there are people in this world who do not believe in the snooze button. I applaud you people. I don’t understand you people. Teach me your ways, people who get out of bed after the first alarm. J and I both have a thing or eighty we could learn from you.
Ultimately, I’d like to blame Gilmore Girls on Netflix for my absence. I posted on Facebook that I was starting the series again and, hello, I’m a binge watcher by nature. It’s one of my spiritual gifts. So to the Lorelai’s I say: Get off of my screen with your witty banter and nostalgia!
Yes, yes I am still watching. Quit judging me, Netflix.
In my dreamland fantasy world, G and I will have the same quick-witted back and forth that Lorelai & Rory do. I attempted this yesterday when G was fussy and I was trying to engage her in a game of peek-a-boo (usually a real crowd pleaser at our house).
“G! Peek a boo! Where’s my baby?”
*fussy baby fusses*
“G, mommy is really good at peek a boo, your fussing isn’t very encouraging.”
*fussy baby fusses*
“G, this is one of my life skills! Please play with me!”
*fussy baby tilts head, offers a smile, and puts her hands over her eyes*
We’re right on our way to the repartee of the Gilmore Girls. Ish.
In sum, my life skills include peek-a-boo and binge watching TV shows from 15 years ago.
The bar is set low, my friends. Right where I like it.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a little Easter weekend recap, which includes mixed thoughts on a new restaurant in town and how my child mirrored my athletic skills during her egg hunt. Bless her heart.
