Ten things on a Tuesday afternoon.

I’m giving you a ten things post because I feel like I have a lot to say and nothing to say all at once. I also feel a bit disconnected from the blogging world and want to write more. Here you go:

1) I really should be working right now. I don’t know how to switch my motivation switch on but I need to figure it out. I struggle with this all the time but it is getting a bit absurd. I need to figure out some sort of system to keep me focused.

2) My MIL sold her house. When asked what she plans to do next she joked that she would come live in a tiny house in our yard. That is not happening. She will not live with us. I don’t feel the need to discuss how much that is not happening because it is so much not happening. But she might move closer which means we would have family closer than 3,000 miles. That’s complicated but also nice.

3) Gus is getting his last tooth. He has also been a major pain the last few days so hopefully those two are connected.

4) We went camping and on a 5 mile hike this weekend. Toddler’s can’t hike five miles – in case you did not know.

5) I bought myself new rainbow chaco sandals that should arrive today. I’m not sure I have ever been so excited about anything.

6) Gus is pretty cool. He knows things and has some great reasoning skills. Last night we took the dog on a walk and Gus wanted to bring something to carry. This is normal. It is normally a hockey stick, golf club, or baseball mitt. We shot all those down. The next hope was his stuffed fox. Lesley told him the walk was for our bodies only. He claimed that fox had a body. Lesley corrected him and said human and dog bodies only. He excitedly yelled, “Okay!” and ran to his room and grabbed his stuffed dog. He won.

7) His imagination is off the charts lately. He has decided he is a bunny. He puts on pretend hockey equipment and pretends to skate. On walks he pretends throws balls. It’s all sweet and strange and makes everything take forever.

8) I am taking him to the big city pride parade on Sunday. Lesley can’t go and gets the whole day at home alone. (She has a work thing that afternoon.) I am jealous.

9) I am going out of town for a two night/three day conference in October. I am both excited and sad.

10) I joined a Step Bet through my fitbit. It is a different app but everyone pays in $40 and you have to get a certain number of steps to get your $40 back. If anyone doesn’t make it their money is split between those who do. I’m determined to make it but it means last night I paced around our house while watching OITNB.

Kid pictures? Kid pictures.

Changing his dogga’s diaper on our walk. 

Watching mama play softball. 

He’s the best.

  1. I wish our wives could play on the same softball team so our kids could play together while we drink discreetly. Also, #1 is like my biggest struggle right now… and I should be extra motivated because my job is anything but secure, but I’m running out of fucks.

  2. Ooh, the city you live in or the Bigger One to the North? We’ll be at latter!!!

  3. I almost wrote a ten things post yesterday too. I’m feeling similar things with regards to blogging and getting work done. I made a big to do list on my white board and am getting some things done.
    What about a doll mei tai for walks?

  4. #1 so much! I am even trying to remain off FB while at work because it is a total time suck.
    I am certain we have pictures of the kids watching Corrie play softball like Gus too! Please say I can drink with you two while the wives play?!? HA!

  5. #6 is my favorite. Kids are the best.

  6. My spouse does step bet too, it has kept her very motivated. Lots of pacing before midnight. I cannot imagine that hike.
