Doing: Currently I am writing this post while trying to figure out what is going on our meal plan for the next two weeks. In other news around here we have been going through some nap strikes and a strange bout of eating strikes from the child who up until a few days ago would eat most anything – please tell me this is just a phase. Alder has been happily waking us up at 4am this week, another thing I hope is just a result of a developmental leap. Besides all that Edith started swim lessons this week, Alder laughs all the time, I’ve managed to clean up most of the first and second floors this week and Neil has been bringing home the (tempeh) bacon.

Thinking about: what we are going to eat the next two weeks and how I wish we had food right now because I want a snack (and a glass of wine).

Watching: Neil and I have been watching or should I say up until today binge watching The Good Wife. Back when it started we watched the first few episodes but dropped it not because we didn’t like it but because shows we were already dedicated to watching took over our screentime. When we saw that the first five seasons of the The Good Wife were on Amazon prime instant streaming we started it and became obsessed.

Looking forward to: Our playdate tomorrow aka mom chat time. Also the weekend because while this hasn’t been a bad week it has been a tiring and long week and I am so ready to have Neil home with us.

Reading: I am currently reading Gone Girl (and no I never finished The Book Thief); this book is seriously good and I only have 13% left to read so I am hoping to finish it before Friday night (at home) date night so that Neil and I can watch the movie.

Loving: Neil and how despite working all day that he gives me a break in the evening and he gets up to bounce Alder at 4am when he is fully awake and ready to party.

    It’s 7am here and in currently drinking coffee and reading The Piano Man’s Daughter by Timothy Findley. Such a good book! I’m waiting for the sun to come up so I can go shovel out the 20cms of snow we got last night before heading to work. Looking forward to the weekend!

  2. It’s 9:30pm, and I am currently thinking about going to bed, grateful it is still the weekend, and skimming through “Everything I Need to Know I Learned From a Little Golden Book,” which was a lovely, thoughtful birthday gift from a dear friend, and contains more wisdom than you might expect for such a pop-fluff quick read.
