Made me think

Just popping in to share a link before I forget.

I really loved Joanna’s post on how we talk to little girls. Specifically, how we tend to tell them they’re pretty rather than asking them about books or other pursuits.

Something to think about.

Trying to get back to normal

I’m sorry for the infrequent posts lately. It’s been a trying couple of weeks.

So you know how I was sick? Well that was awful enough. But as soon as I started to feel better, Mike got sick. As soon as he felt better, the dog got sick!

Poor girl. I figured she’d just get better like we did, but she got worse. At one point she was throwing up blood. So of course we took her to the vet, and found out that she had an infection and needed antibiotics.

We hadn’t slept well at all last week since we had to keep getting up to let her out. When she started feeling better she maintained her routine of waking up at 3 a.m. and refusing to go back to sleep. Ugh.

So yesterday I started feeling crappy again. It’s just so frustrating because I am actually really busy with work (something I’ve wanted to be for a long time!), and I have to put it aside to rest. I guess your body tells you what it wants no matter what you would rather be doing.

Thankfully there have been some bright spots. Mike had a graphics class in the city and he brought us back morning buns from Tartine.

You know you have a good husband when he brings you this.

I also found these pretty vintage knitting needles on etsy. I just couldn’t resist those colors!

I made them into my new centerpiece. They make me smile every time I walk by.

So, I am attempting to take it easy and get back to normal, but I’m struggling. I am so excited for the new things I am working on for my shop, and I just want to get them done. I don’t want to lose any momentum.

We are going to have some visitors soon, so I also need to get ready to play tourguide.

Maybe I need another morning bun.
