Today I pushed my luck, slept a half hour later, and still made it to work on time.

Today I started my new gig at the new job and realized that it may be more of a scenery change then anything else.

Today I was lectured by a colleague for not being concerned enough about getting shanked (Family, don't freak out. Not really a big issue), a boss for not telling inmates more about my pregnancy, and by a mentally ill inmate about taking good care of the baby and "blessing" myself.

Today I sort of wanted to kick my own ass briefly for being a whiny ingrate about my job.

Today I decided to stop wishing my job was something it's not, and start appreciating it for what it is.

Today I had a doctor's appointment during which I spent more time shooting the shit with my super awesome, totally unlike the crappy midwife from kid 1, encouraging and relateable doctor than I did being prodded, lectured, or brushed off. (I also got some good gossip about some people I work with.)

Today I bought a onsie with ruffles on the butt and crib sheets covered with ladybugs.

Today I had a minor emotional meltdown over my inability to get "oh my God that's so adorable I have to have it!!!!!!" excited about buying anything for the Bug. Then I remembered how much crap never got used with the first one.

Today I helped my son do his homework for preschool while we waited for our food at one of our favorite restaurants, where C and I then split our two favorite things so we didn't have to choose.

Today I had some really good conversations with a husband I haven't seen nearly enough of lately.

Today I found out that my son has an imaginary friend named Jeff. He's a goldfish. He lives in the toilet. Sometimes he gets flushed "with the poo."

Today just about perfectly sums up my life. It's pretty awesome.


  1. I love it! Yeah for not just a great day, but a great perspective.

  2. Today you had brain overload. Every day is an exercise in "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" and being thankful for blessings, while at the same time wondering WTF. I am having trouble with preschool homework, but the day sounds great. Love you.
