Day #3/14

July 11, 2014

Well!  Here we are.  I haven’t gone crazy yet, but . . . I can’t say I was in the best of moods today.  I’ve been on bedtime duty on my own almost every night this week (I think Josh did come in and “close” on one night) and I’m just feeling . . . ornery.

I kind of just want to disappear for a day.  Hmm, I feel the urge to indulge in a fantasy exercise of sorts . . .

How I Would Spend Tomorrow If I Had Unlimited $ and Childcare
(Let’s also pretend I wouldn’t have any issues by not breastfeeding for a whole day!)

Sleep until 10 or 11 AM.
Breakfast with family at home.
Run.  (And it’s magically 60 degrees outside because I have the ability to control the weather!)
Off to the spa!  Time for a massage and a facial.  Josh gets to come too.
Lunch poolside at the spa. 
Reading time.  (Still at the spa.)
Time to journal, organize my thoughts, prioritize.
An hour at the playground with Josh + A&C.
Dinner out somewhere nice.  With wine.
So much more sleep in a fluffy cloudlike hotel bed with no potential for interruptions.
As Laura suggested today, perhaps I CAN make this happen!  Except not yet, because of the whole breastfeeding thing.  (Yes, I could pump every 3 hours but that would ruin my perfect day!).  Next year though — this is SO coming to fruition.
Day #3/14

workout:  30 minute yogadownload (power vinyasa morning flow)
interesting:  I am not particularly frugal (um . . .understatement?), but I love the idea of being more deliberate with money management, and the blog The Simple Dollar strikes the right chord for me.  Good summary of the author’s financial philosophy: Six Pillars of a Strong Financial Foundation.
positive:  New musical obsession: Sylvan Esso.  Every time I hear one of their songs on the radio, I get so excited.  Plus, they’re from Durham NC!
pic:  Good AM yield (yesterday, not today).  Maybe one day I’ll look back on my pumping days fondly.  Right now I am just SO ready to be done.

    Just want to say, as a long (long!) time reader, that I’m loving this call series and the return of more "daily musings" posts! I know a lot of bigger questions (re: breastfeeding, body issues, working motherhood, etc.) have probably consumed your thoughts in recent years–and have been really interesting to read!–but I miss your old posts sometimes too!
