Dear 2014,

 - ate delicious cherries because it’s cherry season yo

 - saw a teen book that was basically Gatsby meets Edgar Allen Poe. WHAT!  Oh universe.

July 26th, husband fixed my computer

Dear 2014,

Okay, I missed a few days.  But.  DURING those few days husband fixed my hideous computer problems!

I brought my hulking 1999 half atari work PC “laptop” home and was like:

HUSBAND IT CAN’T EVEN—-

Husband was like, “Oh hey there laptop….”

Hours later, he worked through dinner! he was like “Your files are out of control and filled with hidden garbage.  I exported them as CSV then re-imported them as xls.  Check out how fast everything is now.”

And it was.

I was like, “Husband…”

And he was like:

"Husband…you fixed it…."

And he was all:

"Husband, you are King of Husbands."

And he was just “All in a days work, wife.”

July 19th, old comics

Dear 2014,

Sometimes the best treasures are the ones you find in an old folder and remember keeling over laughing at.

July 18th, tiny bean.

Dear 2014,

Lost a few days going through a big scare.  This blog is dedicated to finding a happy thought in each day so I will say that I’m left to be grateful that I turned out to be stronger and braver than I imagined I was.  

I think a huge part of pregnancy is the sudden addition of new worries.  Everything i eat, everything I do, how I take care of myself, how I rest, if I’m stressed, I imagine for the first time in my life, how these things will effect this little person who already relies on me.  I second guess my own decisions more than I ever have.  I feel like each one counts.

When a medical scare comes along and you’re pregnant, you can’t “knuckle through it” even if you worry you’re making something out of nothing.  And when it turns out you weren’t making something out of nothing, you have to stay calm because that wee person is in there, feeling everything you feel.  

I have never struggled to stay calm so hard in my life as I did yesterday at the hospital.  And at the end of it, when everything was okay and I had a real answer to what I went through and acknowledged the size of it, I was grateful at what came out of me to cope with it because you never know how you’re doing when you’re going through something—only after you’re through.  

Tiny Bean, I already promise to always do everything for you.  You are first, for all of your life.

xo,

Mama.

July 14th, happiness is…
Dear 2014,
Finding a good book series is unlocking a treasure trove to be sure.  If you’re lucky enough to enjoy Cassandra Clare novels than you also get to be thoroughly satisfied with the ending to each series.
City of Heavenly Satisfaction.
Just saying.
