Some Things


Rejoice and be glad, all.

Absent suburban medical tourism, I don’t know what I should write about but I am confident we can navigate this new world together.

We got a new comforter (our old top blanket was white and not looking crisp any longer…it was also seven years old) and it is big and fluffy and warmer and heavier than the old top blanket we had on our bed and I love it. Marcus thinks the tufting looks wrinkly but tolerates it.

Every afternoon when the suns streams into the backside of our house I thank God we cut down our ash tree at the end of the summer. Note: increased sunlight into the house was NOT why we cut it down but it has been a surprisingly excellent by-product. Especially at this point in the winter where days have been so short for a month, every little bit of natural light is precious.

We are heading to Arizona on Saturday with all of my in-laws. I am really looking forward to being warm for a few days.

Facebook is the worst. I love that iPhones tell us how much time we spend on social media. I find the scrolling on Facebook pointless and while I appreciate that it allows me to stay connected to people I would otherwise lose touch with, I don’t believe the platform has our best interests at heart. At all. I have been trying to find ways to cut back. When I told my friend Megan about this she said Oh I only check my messages and notifications, I never scroll anymore. I said okay I will try this. YOU GUYS. I only spent 41 minutes on Facebook the entire week. Amazing. Next up: Instagram. Not sure how to tackle it yet but any and all strategies are welcome.

  1. I hear you on FB! I agree with your friend. It is a rare occasion when I scroll anymore, but it makes all the difference in the world. Unexpected Side Effect: Increased Happiness. (I can’t tell you about Instagram because I decided not to get caught up in that one, although it would probably be the one that i would have enjoyed the most out of all the SM platforms.)

    Enjoy the sun!
