happy birthday, you out there
today is my friend kristin’s birthday. only, she won’t see this message, or hear from me in any other way that i’m sending her good wishes for her 29th year. i have no idea where she’s living, no idea who she’s dating, or if she married that guy, or if she’s pregnant, if she’s blissfully happy having left so many friends behind, or if she’s sad and...

the night before
want to know what’s happening right now? i’m exhausted as hell, and i’m keeping myself up (this tv-in-the-bedroom was clearly a terrible idea), even though i know it will make me feel just awful tomorrow morning… but it’s like if i never go to sleep, tomorrow won’t really be here.

“I’ll play with you next year, okay?” Noah said. Sammy looked at me and smiled. “I think he means tomorrow. So I’ll come back then.”
so let's dive right on in then
(this all happened before 11am this morning)
boss: welcome back!
boss: there is one thing which I am hoping you can prioritize for today
boss: was hoping to drag you right into the middle of a reconciliation issue surrounding [redacted]. :-)
i woke up yesterday morning feeling pretty crappy. but i took a hot shower and decided to mind-over-matter the hell out of whatever nastiness was brewing inside my body. i guess it didn’t work well enough; this morning i woke up feeling a LOT worse. right now greg is out, delivering a folding table to my parent’s house - necessary extra table surface for the 25 people that my mom is...
the problem: i wanted a shower. it was harley’s naptime, but she didn’t appear to want sleep. the solution: put her down in her crib, from which she is close enough to the bathroom to hear the water running. start the shower. in approximately 90 seconds she was out cold. three cheers for the mom learning curve!
First time riding the subway since becoming un-pregnant. When I got on, for a second I wondered if I’d be offered a seat. Ha!
some thoughts on my night out
so awesome to see my friends. so fun to have a few drinks (i’m feeling buzzed, for sure). so wonderful to see heather who i L-O-V-E. so missing my beautiful daughter. so realizing how my priorities have shifted.

how did i not know about this until now? i freakin love jim and pam!
well hello there
up until this point i didn’t really know what i wanted from this. it’s been lots of links and ‘reblogs’ and short comments on what else is already out there. and not much of my own contributions. not much judi in the judiism, as it were. i thought i’d share thoughts and feeeeeeelings and glimpses into my day, my life. but i haven’t really gotten going....
well if this isn’t just about the sweetest thing i’ve ever seen…
Don’t become something just because someone else wants you to, or because it’s...– Kristen Wiig (via katespencer:shiningstar) (via allthingsalishan) this is feeling especially meaningful right now. what i really, really, really want to do is go back to school, with the goal of becoming an english teacher. why i didn’t pursue that earlier on, i’m not really sure....
carolinek: Ok, I have at least two people who watch Dancing with the Stars, so that sounds like a vote for me to talk about it! Ya’ll Chad Ochocinco is rivaling Maksim in the “Entire reason I watch this show” category. Also, that Jake the Bachelor guy almost made me vomit during his talking points. Eww. i never fully realized how strikingly handsome chad ochocinco is. i even said as much to...
Mad I left my phone home last night - we went to a bar on 73rd & 1st for G’s cousin’s bday - I would have earned my Far, Far Away badge!
Fingers crossed for a Michigan State victory! Go Green!!
this is disgusting, ABC news. →
(via scenes-from-my-hood) wow… that is sad and deranged and, yes, disgusting.
i’m extremely frustrated that we are stuck inside right now because harley’s extreme overtiredness from willfully skipping her morning nap made it impossible to get her down for the afternoon nap and now she’s finally sleeping peacefully and giving me some time to calm down b/c she really had me on edge for a while there so i don’t want to wake her up but i’m really...

harley has fallen asleep on my chest, post meal. strap her into the car seat and get out and about now? or let her nap in the crib now and go out later?
The Social Safeway is Reopening in May →
easilyportable: I knew a guy that picked up a girl while picking up some eggs here. greg told me the safeways in dc were all ‘named’ this way, and it wasn’t that i didn’t believe him… i just couldn’t quite imagine it was really something *everyone* did, outside of he and his friends. his claim is now validated.
we're so connected
harley’s napping upstairs, and i’m downstairs in our office with the monitor next to me. i haven’t heard anything in a while so i turn the video on to look at her, and she’s SO perfectly still. i look closer, squinting at the screen to make sure i see her little belly rise and fall… and just in that moment, as if to let me know she’s doing just fine, she does...
