Everyone loves to rag on about the horrible day they’re having. It’s true. And you know what is true? I am having a good one! Actually, I have been having a good week. Instead of posting a cliche ass quote in script font, that someone else probably didn’t even say paired with a sunset photo… (say that in one mouthful). I am going to talk to you about my week and why it rules.
Kitty Therapy: I went to volunteer at the animal shelter and hung out with the kittehs. Seriously, this is one of the best things I have ever done. Getting one of the most terrified cats to come around for me was so fulfilling, I cannot even begin to tell you. And the therapy is FREE.
Operation Health: we have been eating really good for a couple weeks now, it can be felt and seen. Well, save for the stress that decided to park itself on my face. But it’s ok… I am handling that.
Kitchen Magic: Because we are seriously having to watch our diet, I have been cooking at home A LOT more. Trying new things, getting out of the comfort zone. At the moment I have this curry simmering and the house smells fantastic. UMPHHH
The Car: We finalized the hunt and purchase for the car last Sunday. I am SO RELIEVED to have that out from under us. I found a really nice, used 2013 VW Tiguan that had only 2200 miles on it. And it was black! HOLLAH. So we drove to SF to give it a look see. We got a really good deal on it and although I know Josh is mourning the loss of his Volvo and the balls it had under the hood, this needed to happen in a big way. Reza declared love at first sight the minute she saw the panoramic sunroof. Can’t say it isn’t awesome, it totally is. We christened our maiden voyage the way it should be done.
Califuckingfornia: Sure, it has been raining but Sonoma County is turning greener by the day and all the trees are sporting flowers. The weather is glorious. SO SO grateful to be back on the West Coast.
Road Trip!: You read correctly! Carley Triangle, coming to SoCal VERY SOON. This was plotted in the past couple days and while we are hashing out details, arrival is imminent.
Art Class: I am taking a lino printmaking class tomorrow (been wanting this for months!) and while that isn’t today, I am PUMPED! I am really looking forward to learning some better techniques.
Hair Metal Playlist: Cause everything is more awesome when you’re listening to “Smooth Up In You”. Want in on my goodness? You can listen to my HAIR playlist on Spotify.
This Kid: Sure, she has been testing us but just as she is turning a corner in her growth, so are we with this whole “how to parent” whatnot. It’s a learning curve yo! She has had a particularly rough past two weeks so I cut her some slack, treated her to a smoothie, some arcade game playing and let her watch Adventure Time even if she got in trouble at school. This morning when I went to wake her up, I was laying in bed with her, she grabs my hand and says, “Mom? What you did for me yesterday was really nice”. Damn. We forget she’s only 7 and has a long way to go. So maybe we need to lighten up a little. I just couldn’t imagine our lives without her goofy, morbid and twisted little outlook. This was at her follow up appointment for her toof extraction…
††† : YES. This morning I secured tickets to see CROSSES and I am sporting a big ole boner over it cause I am a total Chino Moreno fangirl. The man could sing church music and I would be all melty. Stupid hurricane came in the way of the Deftones show in Philly, I have been waiting a long ass time! I fear my husband may be embarrassed by me that day.
Grown Up Shit: other than your pants feeling too loose, the other best feeling in the world is paying off and reducing debt. We did that this week thanks to Uncle Sam not impaling us this year. So glad to be reducing that BS.
And well, it’s Friday. Which means time with my dude. Cause well, he’s the best person on my planet.
Do you have any exciting plans this weekend? What are you looking forward to?
