The imperfections post
Since the theme of today is airing your imperfections - here we go: My upper lip is a little deformed in that it’s not the appropriate length. When my lips are relaxed my mouth stays open, it should shut but it doesn’t. I have to purse my lips to shut my mouth completely. Sometimes I don’t give a damn about spelling or grammer. I need attention to live. I talk too much and...
Moral of the story: your spouse makes you fat
Background: I’ve been away all month, working in St. Louis, while Mark was in KC, attending dental school classes. Since we’re both away from each other (i.e. we both have no one to hang out with after work/class) we’ve been working out, about an hour every day. Mark’s lost 8 lbs, I’ve lost 2lbs (WTF is it with guys losing more weight than ladies?). In addition to...
I can't wait to lizard my entire summer away.
Lizard (v) - to bask in the sun, soaking up the rays, not giving a fuck. Usually occurring near a body of water. Self defined and pretty much how I prefer to spend my summer free time. And it’s not about sun-tanning because I’ll slather on the 100+ SPF - I just enjoy the intense heat. The sweet hot prickle of the sun on my skin, the almost oppressive heat radiating around me like a...
I'm not coming on to you.
My contact has a tear in it and don’t have a backup lens or backup glasses. To compensate for the uncomfortable piece of plastic in my eye I keep opening and closing that eye to readjust the lens. I’m afraid my frequent winking is sending mixed signals.
Can I say (without being a corn-dog) that my favorite part of this past weekend was laying on the bed with Mark, Callie, and the pile of freshly folded laundry as we watched The Simpsons on DVD? Because it was.
Last night Mark took it upon himself to add up all the loans we’ve had to take out to pay for his dental school. When he gave me the total I didn’t know whether to vomit or cry. He has just two more years of school left. Neither of us had any debt when we got married. Now…oh Lordy.
In the end, it is important to remember that we cannot become what we need to be...– Max DePree
The time I put deodorant in my hair
After working at my company for four years I finally joined the company gym. I had my reasons for not joining before, mainly laziness and moving out of town, but since I’m in town this whole month I figured I might as well spend my free time working out. The first day I used the gym I went in before work in the morning with all my work clothes and makeup packed with me for the day. I was...
Dream jobs and truth bombs.
I wrote out a very lengthy post about how not everyone can pursue their dream job and how, as a generation, we too often believe we need to land our dream job in our 20s. It was preachy, WAY too much of a downer, and I sounded like a capital B so I deleted it. So instead, I just want to say, be patient and put in the work, and remember, not everyone has the luxury to pursue that dream job of...
How many cups of green tea do I have to drink to...
Those two things cancel each other out right? The office is making me make bad food decisions. When I work at home I usually have a fruit/oatmeal smoothie for lunch and a piece of fruit or crackers for a snack. Today I had a cobb salad for lunch but it had avocado in it so I’m pretty sure that cancels out the fatty dressing, chicken, egg, and cheese (btdubbs - it was delish). In addition...
Anonymous asked: Hi buddy! Sorry it's been a little bit since you've heard from me. I hope all is well! I laughed at your bubble necklace post - I just bought myself one last week ;) - Your TB
Whenever I leave a gas station
I triple check that I’ve removed the gas pump from my car because I’m terrified I’m going to be that woman that drives off with the thing still attached.
We really need a national tumblr meetup for those...
We’d all gather at some big meeting place and spend the day complimenting each other on our fabulous taste in accessories. I bought one the other day so I could and would totally attend.
Tumblr makes me read things
I read all three books in about a week. I kept hoping for more…plot maybe…other than that I can’t explain why I read all three (probably just for the sex). By the third book I was completely disgusted with the series, it was arduous to read and completely devoid of originality. I didn’t even like the main characters. I know this is not a popular opinion on tumblr. By the...
We let Callie sleep at the foot of the bed last...
In hindsight, worst idea ever. She usually sleeps in her kennel but she was hanging out with me on the bed while I read a book and I didn’t have the heart to move her when it was time for bed - she was curled in a little ball snoring away. So, we let her stay. Mark slept like a log, that man can sleep through anything. I, on the other hand, tossed and turned and eventually curled up in the...
