Random Thought Thursday

- This is my favorite post of the week. Heather wrote it. She's mom to two little boys and one of them has ASD. She talks about grief and how parents like us don't really go through the typical stages of grief, but more of a "constant sorrow".

-I feel so inadequate when I go to the pool at the JCC. But only because all the old men have bigger boobs than I do.

-This is a picture of my coffee table and the snotty tissue that my husband left on said coffee table. For two days. I refuse to throw it away because it's HIS tissue and I want HIM to throw it away. I am SO not backing down. I snapped this pic after the second day it lay on the table and sent it to him with a "still here? really?" message. These are the "issues" we have in our marriage. Jealous? Oh, and doesn't everybody have the Barack children's book on their coffee table?

-Fourth of July... Happy Birthday USA. 234? Well done, America. You don't look a day over 220.

- Oh, and one more thing... We've been having a heat wave 'round these parts, so I've spent a whole lotta time at the beach and the pool. Greg snapped a shot of me and I was reminded that I've still got it! (wonder why I don't look very happy about it here)

I loved Heather's post as well. I had never heard of Chronic Sorrow, but now I let everyone know that I have been definitively diagnosed with CSS.
Jealous of both what you are "fighting" about with your husband and the fact that you can still rock a bikini. Hating you even harder now.

seriously- just pick the tissue up and throw it out- you're welcome G.

Looking good, Dani! I'm jealous as I seemed to have gained that freshman-15 this year, didn't know it counted when you were an adult that doesn't live in dorms and eat cafeteria food and drink tons of alcohol at frat parties, but it apparently applies to all freshmen.

And we don't have the Barack book pictured here but we do have a "Yes You Can" children's book- I always make sure it's in a prominent spot when my boyfriend's very-republican brother comes over ;)

Oh and thank you for sharing my post and for liking it so much!! It's nice to hear that I'm not just talking to myself (which I do that as well so I guess that wouldn't be a big deal lol)

My husband and I have a similar war with replacing the empty toilet paper roll. I refuse to do it so the empty roll sits on the holder while the full roll is sitting on the floor next to the holder. Men. Jeeze.
