Thursday Thoughts

  • It's vacation week... but I've discovered this year that "vacation" is not the same when you've got a kid... oh how I miss the lazy days of getting up at 9, bumming around all day, and just doing what I wanted to do. Now we're up by 6 and my day is centered on an 18 pound "crib midget" (to quote a friend of mine). Right now I could use a vacation from my vacation!
  • I have this bad habit of over-scheduling myself over vacations... I make all kinds of plans with friends I haven't seen in weeks (some of them months). I schedule all kinds of appointments, and I make it a personal goal to clean the house... and then I fail. Between the appointments and the dates with friends I end up too exhausted to actually be productive... and then I end up frustrated that I didn't get things done. You would think I would learn... clearly not happening
  • Fynn's currently entered in a local radio station's cute baby contest... I so wouldn't be opposed if you wanted to vote for her. She's #0116. I don't even care about the prizes (I actually didn't even know what they were until after I'd entered her) I really just want bragging rights. 
  • I got my hair cut the other day, and while sitting in the chair getting my hair washed I thought about whether or not people close their eyes during this... I usually do, because otherwise I feel awkward like I'm staring at the person/the wall in front of me, but what do other people do? 


  1. I do the same thing on vacations. The weeks that I didn't have my internship this semester were almost more stressful than my internship because I crammed them so full of to-dos, I don't know how to live any other way. haha.

    Also, I always close my eyes... at least we aren't alone?

  2. Definitely close my eyes when getting my hair washed! It makes me feel dizzy if I see the stylist's arms moving in front of my face so I always close them. More relaxing too!

  3. I always close my eyes... if not, you'd be forced to talk with the person washing ur hair. But at the same time, how awkward do you feel when you ARE talking to them AND your eyes are closed? lol

    I voted!

  4. I totally close my eyes too! It gets very awkward!

    I hear ya about vacation with kids. I have 4! Although now that they are way past the baby stages I actually do get to sleep in again. :)

    I am stopping by via Thursday Thoughts link up. Hope you can stop by soon at A Day in My Life. I am now following you and like your facebook page.

    Have a great day!

  5. I usually close my eyes while I get my hair washed too, unless my stylist is talking to me! As a stylist, it is kind of awkward when people are staring up at me while I wash their hair, so I usually look off to the side so that I don't stare back haha.

  7. I ask the last question about the dentist! Never know if I should keep my eyes open or shut!

  8. I always close my eyes. I don't want to be staring at the person cutting my hair.

    And you really don't have a vacation, even when you do have kids!
