OK, I admit it. It's September 28 and I'm only posting today because I haven't posted since August 2 (and that one was pretty light on content). So I apologize in advance for a post that's written without a topic in mind. Plus, Audrey is upstairs waking up from her nap, so there isn't even much time to write, which I guess is fine because I don't have anything to write about! My resolutions have all been met except for one, and that one I've given up on. I've surpassed my number of books because I have become addicted to the Wheel of Time series. In fact, as I told Ryan the other day, I like them better than Harry Potter and LOTR combined, and that is saying something! I'm almost done with book six, and am excited that I still have seven more to go! I'm hoping to finish them all before the final book comes out next year. I find that my favorite parts are when "nothing" is happening. One of the reasons I love the books so much is exactly the reason I see so many people complaining about them: that they drag on and on and not much happens. I love that.
The resolution I've given up on is the Couch-2-5k program. It's practically impossible with a baby in the house! We don't have a jogging stroller, and it's too hot to run outside anyway. The treadmill is in our buggy basement, and apparently it is so loud when I run on it that I wake up Audrey from her naps! So I've started just walking outside, or using our Wii (which can give a surprisingly good workout!).
I read an article yesterday about how the most prevalent lie in our culture is that parents tell their children they don't have a favorite child. I was able to talk to my mom about it because as it happens, I'm the favorite. She says that parents love all their children the same, but may relate to one better than the others. I can see how that would be the case, but it also makes me worry about having another child. How could I possibly love another baby as much as I love Audrey?
I have switched from the two spaces between sentences to the one space. I'm not sure what made me change. I know that's how Ryan does it, and he insists it's more correct. I think I just got too lazy to put in that extra space all the time.
My things-to-do list continues to evolve. I have split my daily list into two lists: "Musts for everyday" and "Musts for days I'm home". There are just some things I cannot get done on days when I'm away from home. But there are some things I have to do everyday. It seems to be working well for me. I have also split my general list into two lists: "Things to do soon" and "Things to do eventually". The eventually list I hardly ever look at, but I still want to remember should be done.
On my list of things-to-do is a list of blog post ideas that I've been meaning to write. Some of them I want to do, but know in order to do them right, they will take a lot of time. We'll see if I ever get to them. I hope so. I had another great idea for a blog post, but never wrote it down, so I can't remember what it was! It will probably never get written now, which makes me sad. It would have been amazing. In fact, let's pretend I wrote that one instead of this one and you have been sufficiently amazed and fulfilled by reading that post.
It was as good as I said it would be, right?
