I decided something yesterday. There are a million moments in my life where I pass something and go, wow, that would make a good picture. Why did I spend nearly a thousand dollars on a camera if I'm not going to take advantage of those moments? Can anyone answer that question? So, I decided that when I'm faced with one of those moments, I will stop and take a picture. Or 10. In fact, I did it yesterday. There was the most amazing sunset happening right in front of my face and I stopped, and took a picture. And it made me feel happy. So I'm going to keep doing it.
Ever have those times when you are so looking forward to something and then it finally happens and TOTALLY fails to meet your expectations? Then you're left disappointed and sad? I hate when that happens. It happened to me yesterday, with my first time ever eating a French macaron. (Go figure that it would involve food.) I was hyped to have finally found a place that sells them because I've been hesitant to make them because they are womanly (read: difficult). I snatched up the last little gal, got in my car and took the first bite, expecting sudden bliss and the Heavens to open up and angels singing... nada. It was not the texture I expected, it was not the flavor I expected; disappointed am I. I think I am going to take a stab at making some so that I can see if it was just this place, or if they really aren't as great as they look. We'll see.
I had soda today for the first time in almost a month. And boy, was I missing it. Not the caffeine, either. I just love soda. It, unlike the macaron, was just what I expected. Normalcy is sometimes bliss.
Punk and I had an off weekend last weekend and I hate it when that happens. Most of the time I feel like I have this 'Mom' thing down and then we get into a rut and it drops me back down to feeling like a horrible parent. Hopefully this weekend will be better since we don't have her next weekend.
I am having a hard time staying employed right now. Not really sure what it is, but I could really get used to having some down time. I just want to sleep in (which to me is only 7:30 so really it isn't asking much). And I want to clean my house. And I want to snuggle with my devil cat. And I want to cook dinner more than once a week. And I want to BAKE!
