I went to bed with a headache last night even after taking Tylenol, which I try really hard not to do while pregnant, at 9:30pm and still had a headache at 2am when A was up (took more Tylenol). Then still had a headache at 6:30am when R woke me up. Wtf?
I hate headaches and especially hate it when they won’t go away. I may refuse drugs while pushing humans out of my body but when I have a migraine I’m all about anything that will make it go away! So obviously A picks today as the “day of screaming in mom’s face for no apparent reason.” I mean unless you count the fact that the bathroom door won’t shut all the way as a good reason. Trust me, she does. So I do everything I can think of to kill the headache demon and it doesn’t go away until A is finally taking a nap (and I’m attempting to take one).
Yea! I can think straight again! Wait not so fast mama…. A is awake and she is super PISSED that R isn’t home and decides to, you guessed it, scream in my face about it! Headache is back on. Luckily R has a break between classes and comes home around 2pm and I immediately grab my purse and head out the door with a brief “when do I need to be back?” I have every intention of staying gone until the last possible second.
I planned to head to Starbucks for a caffeine attempt at killing the headache (go ahead and award me the worst pregnant hippie of the year award) but then decide after hearing a commercial for the local coffee shop/creperie to head there for a rare mama treat. Crepes aren’t really in our budget right now so I’d usually never go there but I was feeling sorry for myself and figured I deserved it (responsible I know).
Arsagas at the depot (fancy name for coffee/crepes) is like a 5 minute walk from our house but because of where I am, I have to drive through campus and deal with undergraduate cross walkers and buses and it takes me 15. I get there finally and omg there is a sign that says “Closed today for Spring cleaning” (!!!!) Why does the universe hate me? I want a crepe dammit and some caffeine.
I ended up going to another local coffee shop with overpriced sandwiches and my avocado slices were rock hard but I’m sitting on a patio and it’s a gorgeous day so I’m pretty happy. But I must be some kind of mental patient because as I sit here enjoying some much needed “me” time I’m totally missing R and crazy bird A. So when R texts me to say they are on a walk I disclose my location and invite them to join me. Here’s hoping that A doesn’t immediately start screaming in my face when they arrive. Happy Monday people!
p.s. Some guy just asked me how much time I had left on the clock. I was super confused and thought he thought I was a server here or something but apparently he was referring to my pregnancy. Men are idiots. The end.
We have already started boxing up our apartment in preparation for our move to Oregon in a month. So I’ve decided take the Project 333 challenge and minimize my closet. It is probably a little easier to start this challenge while you’re pregnant since my maternity wardrobe is significantly limited compared to the rest of my closet. Also there is a loophole that allows you to keep loungewear, pajamas, workout clothes and underwear without a limit. Let’s face it, when you are 6 months pregnant with a toddler at home you are wearing a lot of things that fall into this category.
Anyways for those of you too lazy to click the link, basically the gist is that you only get to have 33 items to wear for 3 months and you pack away everything else until the 3 months is up. The craziest part is that this includes not just clothes but jewelry, bags, hats, scarves and SHOES!
I am also reading this book which discusses everything that’s f-ed up about how we view fashion these days. It’s really opening my eyes to the way I spend money on clothes and helping me make changes for the better.
Here is a picture of my closet and the items that have made the cut. I have a couple items that I’m going to put away after the wedding this weekend. Newbies get a week to adjust the 33 items as necessary. I’ll list everything next week once it’s finalized. Also I can’t find my SD card for my camera so sorry about the fuzzy phone picture. I NEED to find it before we leave for the wedding on Thursday!
My collection at the moment.

You all know how much I love gore and guts and fantasy right? April Fool’s! No. No I don’t.
So in case you don’t know R personally, let me be the first to tell you he’s a big nerd. He reads all of the “nerd” book never-ending series including Game of Thrones (before it was cool). So of course he watches the show and I’m all “yeah watch that one on your own time dude.” But one of my best friends J tells me the other night that she watches it too and I know that like half of America is watching it and I’m willing to bet that most of them aren’t reading the nerd books. So I decide, based on J’s recommendation, that I will give it a chance.
I should also mention that R absolutely hates it when I ignore his recommendations and then someone else tells me that something is good and all of a sudden I’m willing to give it a chance. Same thing happened with Downton Abbey. Anyways, I put my big girl pants on and watched my first episode of GoT (I’m down with the lingo) and pretty much covered my eyes through a whole lot of heads being chopped off and uncomfortable sexual encounters. But I powered on to subsequent episodes and am starting to kind of accept it as a legit show to watch. Don’t get me wrong, I am always browsing online or working on something else while watching and if I didn’t have R to explain things to me I would have given up long ago but for now I will play along. I really don’t fully get the appeal still though. Tell me GoT lovers… why do you like it?
She’s the only one I really like so far (well and the youngest girl Arya). Love her outfits.
