Snippets, again

We seem to be in some weird electronics and appliances vortex of doom: our dryer stopped spinning, the oven only decides to turn on 1/2 the time, I dropped my phone in J’s bath (it fell out of my pocket) then it died (RIP all my text chains), and our cable box doesn’t record anymore. Let’s just say I’m keeping a VERY close eye on the computers.

Luckily (?) for me, we kept our old phones, so I have a dusty, clunky, slow, old phone that doesn’t open a bunch of my apps & somehow deleted a bunch of my contacts. Yay? I think I fixed the contact thing, but I’m mostly just really annoyed with the whole thing. It’s better than having to buy a new phone, but just barely.

J was on winter break for 3 weeks and 1 day. That’s…too long for winter break, lemme tell you. We may have just barely not throttled each other. Then he had yesterday off too. GO TO SCHOOL KID.

That said, as much as I white knuckled it through some days, I also enjoyed having the unique opportunity to spend so much time with J. I am NOT cut out to be a SAHM, but it was still nice to have a chunk of time with my kiddo.

(I’m still REALLY glad he’s back in school).

Current things I’m into: Hamilton the musical (and it’s creator, Lin Manuel Miranda. Geez, what an amazing dude he is), Parks & Rec, watching entire seasons of superhero shows (The Flash & Arrow most recently), cooking/baking/eating (I’ve got a post coming with some of the stuff I’ve made recently that you should make too), trying to eat more veggies (any recipes to share? I’d love them!), waiting for the library holds to come up on every single series I’m reading.

Still looking for a job. Still hate looking for a job.

Tragic Sandwich January 20, 2016 at 6:26 am

I am with you on the 3-week break, and Mr. Sandwich is, too–even more fervently, because he’s the one who took off more days to be with Baguette due to availability of vacation time.

You know who else thought it was too long? Baguette. She was SO happy to go back to school. She likes her days off, but not that many in a row–she really misses being around other kids.

I’m obsessed with Hamilton. I just got the CDs as an early birthday present, and now I have commuting music.

Time to make Baguette’s lunch now.

Soooo many of our appliances died last fall! The dryer died, which prompted a bathroom re-do + new washer/dryer. Then the oven died. Then the dishwasher died, but my husband coaxed it back to life. The battery in my phone pretty much died, so my husband bought me a new one for my birthday. Then the dog got cancer. Then the cat started peeing all over the house (which meant lots and lots of expensive tests). So far (knock on wood), nothing has broken this year. Isn’t it nuts how it all seems to go bad at the same time?
