I apologize for the randomness that is bound to follow. I just have a bunch on my mind and need to get it all out of there. I'm aspiring for an empty head it seems. ;)
Football is back. Yay...no? I joke with my husband that I used to like football before I was married to him. He just takes it all SO seriously, and if the Rams don't win, his mood is forever ruined. At least for the rest of the day. I just don't understand it. It seriously ruins his day when they don't win. I wish I was so passionate about something! Football will undoubtedly take over our lives and the television screen for the next few months. I joked about this on Saturday, when he was watching yet another college game. Lesson learned? Don't joke about football. He flipped and got almost amusingly angry saying that he has to watch the stupid stuff I watch, so it is what it is. This is true. His point is valid. He did not need to flip the way he did to get this across, especially when I was joking. I blame it on his love/hate relationship with football. But seriously? Is anyone else married to a football nut?
I don't want to change my license plates. I still have my MO plates on. They expire next month. Next month we will be moving from WI to IL. I've been trying to figure out the process to update my plates (which is by far more involved than quantum physics) and will probably have to get WI plates and transfer them to IL when we move there. This is annoying. Doesn't this sound annoying?! I try not to let the littlest of things consume my thoughts, but I've been annoyed with this since last Tuesday. Blarg!
I love him. I love him, I love him, I love him! I never thought I could love someone as much as I love this little one. We went to a restaurant/bar yesterday to watch the Rams game. (Oh, don't worry, we will be ordering NFL Sunday Ticket as SOON as we move so we will not miss one SECOND of ANY game...) Anyway, so we went out at 11:30 and stayed at the restaurant until after 3. Logan was good through his meal (of course) and helped me eat my meal, too. Then he was a bit bored. I couldn't blame him. I was, too. I also wanted to whimper and run around the place. I distracted him with coloring. He asked me to draw "a beach!", "the sun!", "a cat and a doggy!", "a snake - ssssss!" and so on. I also wrote out the letters of the alphabet. To my surprise, he started saying them! Granted they were not all completely clear, but still! Maybe it's because he's my first child, or maybe it's just because he's mine, but this little guys surprises me every day with how smart he is and how fast he is growing up.
Mmm, I really love Starbucks. I really want an iced coffee right about now. I have found a few recipes on Pinterest for iced coffees that I must remember to try (see here and here). The drive to plus the price tag of Starbucks makes it less of an occurrence than I would like it to be. Plus, that first recipe really does sound SO delicious.
My, oh my, quote I found on Pinterest. You sure are wise! How I wish I could just not worry about all of the miscellaneous things that I worry about. Such as: aforementioned license plates, logistics of getting to St. Louis on Thursday (yay!), laundry that has to be done and when for said trip, moving, packing, logistics of moving and packing, the regrowth of my roots (I need to go back to dark, it's almost fall after all), how Jake is feeling, how Logan is feeling, will I ever get to go back to school, another baby, ooh that means money, how to appear as if I have it all together, diet soda, water - must drink more water... I'll stop there.
If you made it to the bottom of this post without closing it, you are truly awesome. :) Thank you for letting me empty out some of the jargon in my noggin. :)
