1. i dislike thursdays. i'm a positive person and don't typically make blanket statements like this, but . . . seriously. thursdays are the lowlight of my week, time and time again. i've never understood people moaning about mondays -- come on! the week is fresh and new; are you really burned out already?! but thursdays are nearly always my breaking point. i'm tired and ready for a break, but there's still one . . . more . . . day. [i could probably do some sort of fancy blog analysis to prove this, but i'm too lazy. probably because it's thursday.]
and honestly, my day was actually fine today -- a fairly productive and busy one in the lab. but then i got home and just wanted to lie on the couch and eat chips, which is pretty much what i did [after bath time + putting a. to bed, of course]. contributing to my relative gloom this evening is the fact that josh hasn't even seen annabel since sunday, and i haven't encountered him awake since monday. SO ready for him to go off service!
note to self: i should always plan for a rest day and the easiest possible dinner on thursdays. because that's all that's ever going to happen. the end.
2. i just ate the best popsicle ever. it was the highlight of my, uh, thursday.
lunapops - apparently a local company?
i found them at whole foods and just had a sea salt caramel one -- DELICIOUS.
3. apparently someone at our day care was sick with hand-foot-mouth [ie, cocksackie virus] this week. omgomgomg SOOOO not in the mood to deal with this right now -- a has only been cough free for about 2 days. i am fervently hoping that she still has circulating antibodies [of mine] to this obnoxious illness.
a. at daycare yesterday morning. there could be vicious virions on that innocent-looking pillow!
4. i composed a list of 10 things i hate about pumping while pumping this morning [of course], but i'm not going to post it. i'm lucky to have the luxury of pumping and the ability to breast feed, not to mention a baby to pump FOR. the end.
