Wandering Wednesday

+My dog is whining because he thinks he is locked in his room, which he's not, he's just blind and for some reason suddenly thinks he's blocked in there.

+I've been using unripe lemons from our tree because I have no patience.  I just pretend they are limes and they taste good enough in my salsa.

+Our summer grass is dead and our winter grass hasn't been seeded because our yard guy just disappeared after he turned off the water last month.  I'm anxious to get the green going in time for Thanksgiving.

+I have started watching Dancing With The Stars and it's amazing!  I can't decide who I want to win:  Lindsey Stirling, Drew Scott, Jordan Fisher, so forth...  I watch it all on Hulu.

+I wanted to run the Dumbo Dare 2018 but Disneyland cancelled all their races which is a massive bummer!

+Dash went 3.5 hours between feeds last night which was a record.  Besides the first week home, I've never had to set an alarm to feed him.

+My childhood best friend had her first baby yesterday!

+The lightbulbs in the front areas of my house I can control from my phone and individually make them fancy colors.  I literally change them multiple times a day and it brings me so much joy.  Right now they are set on a Christmas theme.

+I wish I didn't dread the sun going down, and I look forward to the day when I no longer see 6am as successfully making it through another night.

+I have been drinking Nuun everyday.  Nuun with caffeine.

+I have been anxiously thinking about chopping my hair way off and dyeing it purple since earlier this year, and now that the pregnancy hormones are declining I find that thought has not changed.

+We've been in our house for almost three months and I absolutely love it.  We refused to look at two stories for the longest time and ended up buying one and I am so happy because there's nothing like 18' ceilings to make your house feel more spacious than it really is.

+There are only two months left to celebrate Christmas and I am looking forward to Halloween being over so that I can take advantage.

+Today I get to go for my first postpartum run!  It'll be really short but I am excited about it still.

+I get anxiety when my phone rings during the day because it's usually for work and work calls are really hard to take with a toddler who thinks it's daddy and wants to talk to him, and a baby in my arms.  I prefer emailing 100% right now.

+I am looking forward to the cooler weather that is finally on the radar.  There was even a 78 on the forecast today and I just think about taking my family out and eating on a patio somewhere, and soon doing morning breakfasts after my Saturday long runs.

+Andy Weir just came out with a new book, ARTEMIS.  He wrote The Martian which we loved way back before it became a movie.

+I have never done a randoms post before, but I clearly have lots of random thoughts, especially while up in the night feeding our cute baby Dash.


  1. Disney canceled all th races? Why?

    1. I'm not sure exactly, there are mixed reasons out there but none of them ring completely true. Disney World still has theirs at least!
