Thursday used to be one of my favorite days each week. When I lived in NYC, we went to happy hour every Thursday (and Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday). Now Thursday represents Friday Eve and I can start counting down the hours (and pumps) until time with my family.
Now onto random thoughts from the week…..
>>Not much phases me anymore in terms of the random shit I see in NYC. Until yesterday. I saw a woman on the subway had bachelorette penis straws in her hair like hairpins and then 20 minutes later a man whipped his penis out right in front of me and started peeing in the middle of the sidewalk. Neither looked homeless. Worst timing ever with that last one.
>>There are two bad office habits I need to break. One is unbuttoning my pants BEFORE I walk into the bathroom. The other is openly squeezing my boobs to see if it is time to pump.
>>Reading: I don’t really do it. It’s not that I don’t like to read, I just have a very short attention span. I like magazines with pictures such as Runner’s World and Women’s Running and US Weekly The only books that keep my attention are the ones that make me actually L O L. Currently I am reading Jenny Mollen’s book, “I Like You Just the Way I Am” and it is HILARIOUS. She is a writer/actress and married to Jason Biggs. She’s also my favorite person to follow of Instagram/Twitter. #swimfan
During marathon training, I used to listen to books on my phone through. I listened to Hunger Games trilogy and the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy. It helped the time pass because I would focus on the “story” instead of the miles. I also used to listen to Fifty Shades on the train. One time my headphones weren’t plugged in all of the way and the every person in the crowded car knew I was a pervert when Christian Grey spoke explained his red playroom.
>>I can openly admit that I have a Penn Station drinking problem. 4 out of 5 days I buy a mini bottle of wine for the ride home.
>>The good news: The Chipotle in my town finally opened and now the delicious burrito bowls are only a mile away from my home. The bad news: The workers are SO slow. Maybe I am too hard on them. Maybe I am too used to the extremely fast-paced assembly line that the workers form in NYC to deal with the lines out the door from 11AM-2PM daily. Either way, it stresses me out.
>>I have an obsession and it is Facebook online garage sale groups. I mentioned it a few weeks ago but it’s getting out of hand. I keep buying great toys and clothes for Jennie from people who will sell very cheap just to get the stuff out of their house. It really is amazing. It is quality stuff too!!!! The problem is that I make Fizz drive all around the county at all hours to pick up the goods. I need to stop, but I won’t.
An example of purchasing too many things from these Facebook groups: Jennie has 3 “My First Halloween” onesies. She obviously can’t wear them next year, so she wore them each to daycare this week!
>>I am in a weird phase of post-wedding sadness. I can’t believe it’s over. So much time and planning and it was over in a flash. I feel like I don’t remember parts of the night (half because I was having so much fun and half because I had 7 tequila shots).
>>Has anyone used Rent the Runway? thoughts? I am going to a fancy NYC wedding in 3 weeks and I want to wear a fancy dress. I obviously don’t own one because I shop at Forever 21 with my child in tow. I’ve heard great things but I get worried that it won’t fit. I should probably purchase a backup just in case. I would love to hear any and all experiences
>>Can we all agree that shopping for jeans is actually worse than shopping for bathing suits? Last weekend and the weekend before I tried on approximately 35 pairs. Different stores, different brands, different prices (thank you to everyone that replied to my desperate plea on Facebook). My hands were in pain from pulling each pair on and struggling to get out the jeans that I had to business putting on in the first place. The good news: I bought 2 pairs. One pair is from the 7 for all mankind outlet and the other is from the Loft.
