Give me about 15 seconds and suddenly OMG WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE STOP I HAVE TO CLEAN THE WHOLE HOUSE STOP I THINK SOMEONE HAS A BRAIN TUMOR STOP I AM WORRIED OUR TWO YEAR OLD IS GOING TO GET RANDOMLY HIT BY A CAR STOP LIFE IS GOOD RIGHT NOW WHAT IF SOMETHING BLINDSIDES US STOP
and then Scott comes over and whispers, gently,
"Um, Rachel? How much coffee did you have?"
"Just two cups! I can do two cups, right?!"
WHY DO I DRINK IT? WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY AFTER EVERLOVING DAY?
I'm not sure.
I'm a glutton for punishment?
So, it usually goes that I have all of this coffee and then I clean the house like crazy and then I get the "lip sweats", as my husband affectionately calls them:
Then I wipe the lip sweats off and we passionately make out...
he goes to watch some Myth Busters.
either way, I'm hot.
So...do you ever just sort of freak out about how quickly life is passing you by? I've decided to overcome my fear of rejection and am compiling a memoir as we speak. It's the thing to do, right? Slapping some words together and then trying to get an agent and thinking you're cool because you're like every other mommy blogger that ever lived?
Sometimes I feel like I shouldn't be 34. I should be 20, still in that dorm room in the basement of the college dorm, writing letters to my friends and wondering how I am going to garner the attention of the Welsh foreign exchange student.
I can't understand him when he talks and he has teeth like the guy from Notting Hill, but... still. SO CUTE.
|he's totally sneering at us, with love|
So. Time. It's strange. I was going through old pictures and saw Lucy as a three year old and it made me a little panicky and bittersweet and sad.
Trying to make time stand still is like trying to keep hold of a pretty pink ribbon you see flying through the sky with greasy hands. (Just to be clear: the ribbon doesn't have greasy hands, you do. Because of the lip sweats you constantly wipe away.)
Not my best analogy ever, but whatever.
Carpe diem, my friends. Carpe diem.
Without the caffeine.
