Today: Currently | February 2016

Am I the only adult who spells February wrong at least 78% of the time?  Regardless of how you spell it, February has been a really good month.  Just ask these two.

Reading

  • This article on the ambition gap that my sister shared with me: America loves women like Hillary Clinton as long as they’re not asking for a promotion by Sady Doyle, qz.com
  • An embarrassing number of toddler development books… I mostly have no idea what I am doing… except I believe you’re not supposed to laugh when your toddler’s being fresh.  Even when her response to “Why are you standing on the table?” is “Because I’m being a freshie.”
  • To Kill a Mockingbird (again)

Listening to

  • Foo Fighters on Spotify + noise-canceling headphones (this is how I survived getting a crown at the dentist last weekend)
  • Season 2 of Serial – I keep thinking I am done (I’m still not sure how I feel about this season), but then I get hooked.  That Sarah Koenig, man.

Watching

  • The St. Patrick’s Day decorations go up around the neighborhood
  • We just caught up on Homeland and now I’m morbidly depressed (I don’t want to ruin it for anyone, so I will just say this, I think you-know-who is still alive… which makes me think his or her life is going to be even more miserable going forward.  Also, post-partum hormones are real.  And TV characters are not.  But whatever.)
  • Election coverage… and now I’m morbidly depressed.  And we have months and months and months of this crap to endure.

Hi, baby Nick.

Enjoying

  • Signs of spring out at Castle Island (Sully’s opened this weekend)
  • A month of really consistent workouts
  • Baby wearing – I had forgotten how good it feels (and how it magically soothes a little one)
  • Grace’s newfound love for telling “jokes” (a recent favorite: “Grandpa is your sister!  It’s a joke!”)

Feeling

  • Extra productive and creative on some days, and like a nearly-expired sloth on others.
  • An itch to sign up for a race or two or six.  Blame the 50 degree weather and a fresh pair of sneaks.

Alright, I’m off to make the most of Leap Day… or as I think of it, an additional 24 hours for everyone to plan an extravagant birthday surprise for me.  Just kidding.  Also, I kind of hate surprises.  Toodles!
