Very Recent History

30 Oct

I used to get all my best ideas in the shower.  Since I retired, though, I don’t seem to have any ideas, nevermind good ones.  Until today.

Most of the blogs I follow do some kind of weekly summary.  I think I’ll start doing this, too (shower genius), since my life now seems to happen in clips rather than episodes, and looks NOTHING like this:

Hahaha… sigh.

So!  Where were we?  Oh right – last week.  Sadly, I have to look at my Google Calendar to even write this.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… Mommy brain is REAL.

Kicked things off with a lovely book club meeting, and an interesting discussion of why some people can’t get addicted to The Great Pinterest.  Apparently, there are “words people” out there who would rather read than look at pictures.  Huh.

Normally I wouldn’t think the baby’s checkup was blogworthy, but this one was good.  This kid is in the 7th percentile for weight, the 90th for height, and the 96th (down from 98th) for head circumference.  She is TRULY an orange on a toothpick!

There was a little shopping and dining with my lovely in-laws, complete with some cute clothes AND wine (I don’t charge much for grandparent time…), and then…
I DID IT.

I took a 30 dollar walk.

In those shoes.

I did jog a little bit, and immediately regretted it.  Overheard in my house later that day: “Are you going to walk like that all night?” and “How’s your new leg fitting?”  I’m sure there were other helpful comments… But he showed up with flowers instead of going to work, so I had to laugh at his jokes instead of rolling my eyes.

You know you’re an achiever when you get flowers for walking…

Ah, love.

    She is not an orange on a toothpick. She is smart, tall and thin. People pay money for this stuff!

      Haha! Hilarious and true. My baby’s pants are always too long and too big around, and I keep wishing I had the same problem! Cute blog post, Rachel.
