in brief

January 29, 2013

and ready for a little backup.  and, you know, some company at dinner that can talk [baaa ba bee ohhh pthhh etc doesn’t count].  thankfully josh arrives home tomorrow.

“mommy, what are you saying?  
i am a fantastic conversationalist.  and i love these carrots!”

thinking about
* habits [inspired by this zen habits post].

* how i really, REALLY don’t feel like i have enough time in my 168 hours* [sorry, laura vanderkam!  and i mean this in the most respectful way.  maybe i just need to keep excavating for those minutes . . .]

* sleep.  i wish i could be one of those people who feels great on 7 hours/night — but i’m not.  SO not.  i really should study now [and let’s face it – probably should have studied rather than written this post, even if it’s short].  but i’m already totally tired.**

on the up-side:
i’m sure i’m behind the times [it came out in january — of 2012], but LOVING the self-titled django django.


fantastic running music.  or baby dancing music.  definitely check it out.

* not at all trying to say that i have a woah-is-me-soooo-busy life.  i actually don’t at all right now.  one [easy] baby.  one manageable job.  i just — as always — want to do more than actually fits in the week.

** it’s 9:28 pm and i’m going to suck it up and study for 30 minutes now that i’m re-reading what i wrote.  so, yay.

    I love django django as well! Good luck…just a bit longer!I think the weekends would be the hardest!My husband will be on a business trip for aweek soon and I am dreading it! I know I’m fully capable of taking care of our daughter on my own as I am a sahm and my husband is home for about 1-2 of my daughters waking hours. However, we always tag team baths, which is necessary with my daughter. Also she is only 8+ months old but it’s as if she knows the second her daddy is supposed to be home because she gets super cranky when he is late! We both need that 15-30 minutes that he is all hers! Plus as you said it is nice to have someone to converse with! I am already tired thinking about it! Thinking about it
    I am so lucky that my husband is so involved when he is home(as yours seems to be as well)!

    It’ll get better once Josh gets back. Yes you can do everything yourself, but it’s oh so much easier when there’s another person to tag-team with.
