Saturday Night Snippets

It’s insane to me that we’re only 10 days into 2015. I feel like it’s the end of January already, but….nope. We’re only just started this year. This makes me think it’s going to be a whirlwind kind of year.

I’ve had to take entirely too many antibiotics the last few months. Related: do you have a probiotic you really like that isn’t, like, a gazillion dollars?

We went to a birthday party for one of J’s school friends today. He & his family recently moved a couple of towns over “for more space.” OH MY GOD YOU GUYS, they basically have their own park. The house is huge, they have a giant trampoline, a pool, a hot tub, a putting green & two sand traps, a swing set, a storage shed,  a 1/2 a basketball court, AND THERE’S STILL MORE YARD. None of that stuff was remotely close to each other.  It’s seriously insane how much space they have.

I don’t get jealous about other people’s homes too often, but whoooo boy was there a little bit of a green-eyed monster showing his face every so often. All that spaaaaace.

You know what is surprisingly satisfying and enjoyable? The Lego video games. You get to destroy EVERYTHING and it is SO. SATISFYING. Something about smashing the crap out of every single thing around you is an amazing stress reliever. So far I’ve played the Harry Potter games, the Marvel Superheroes, and Lego Movie Lego games. We also want to get the Lego Batman game, and I want to get the Lord of the Rings games too. Seriously, if you remotely like video games, I highly recommend them.

J has been so full of personality lately. I swear, we need to get him in some kind of performance activity, because he is such a little ham. The other day he got something he was waiting for and says “Now *that’s* what I’m talking about!”

I have probably listened to the song Uptown Funk abooooouuuuutttttt 40 times this week. I highly recommend it if you need a groove to bop along to.

 

Also, I’ve decided that “Stop! Wait a minute, fill my cup, put some liquor in it” is my mantra for Fridays.

I like Culturelle, but I don’t know if it qualifies as ridiculously expensive.

My method for overcoming space envy is to remind myself how nice it is to be such a short drive to the beach. I used to remind myself how much worse my commute would be if I moved inland, but then the company I worked at moved inland and that stopped working.

Pearls Probiotics are my fave and available at Target or other major retailer. I get Baby Jarro-dophilus at Whole Foods for my kids (and I use it, too), it’s a powder that mixes easily and a jar of it lasts for at least a year.
