I rolled out of bed this morning at 5:27 or so this morning, so I have spent the past few hours watching the sun rise, purging my blog e-mail inbox, unsubscribing to e-newsletters, and eating First Breakfast. Now, I will type a rambling blog post because I can and I happen to feel like it.
Yesterday when I was driving to work, I was listening to Classical MPR and they played “Happy We!” by Handel and Critter seemed to be a big fan, so for the last hour I have been playing Handel’s Messiah for Critter and…they still seem to be a big fan. Maybe it’s the heavy emphasis on the harpsichord? We do not seem to have these same feelings for Mozart or Bach, so I don’t know. I mean, I personally like Handel’s music, so this is not exactly a massive sacrifice on my part, but I do think it’s hilarious.
From the department of nesting/house purging, over the last 24 hours, I have managed to take a load of things to the thrift shop, and re-homed a bag of possessions with a sorority sister. I have one more bag of books to dispossess myself of this morning, and then we are free and clear on that front. There’s really not much else to purge at this point because I did all of that when I was switching out my closet, or earlier in the year when the Konmari bug struck. That being said, GOD IT FEELS SO GOOD TO GET THINGS OUT OF THE HOUSE. I am 100% positive I will feel similar feelings of centered-ness once the bathroom renovation and the nursery are complete.
I also have a struggle to pose to you, dear readers. It seems like so many of the bloggers I used to read have either stopped posting (or drastically slowed it down). OR (possibly worse) they have given into the beast of #sponsored postings, which frankly I do not care to read for a host of reasons, most of them having to do with the fact that I Do Not Care To Watch The Commercial That Someone Else Has Turned Their Life Into. So. What blogs are you reading and loving? I need some help here.
With that, I think I must adjourn, so that I can do some power walking before Critter’s first baby shower! This weekend feels like it’s going to move so quickly, but we only have to make it through three days of work next week and then we get a four-day Thanksgiving weekend. Tell me I am not the only one who is just totally jazzed about this situation.
