five tidbits for your monday

1. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to be moving. Yes, it's bittersweet to be leaving my loved ones, but, I am so ready for my little family to make a new start in New York! There was a period of a few weeks where the thought of leaving the people that I love and care about seemed so painful and brought me to tears. However, those thoughts soon gave way to all of the opportunities and experiences that this move is going to bring us and I started to eagerly anticipate the move. I despise this cliche but I do believe that everything happens for a reason.

2. I have recently realized that weekends are no longer weekends when you're a SAHM. They're just days that you have help. The routine stays the same, the frustration doesn't budge, and the to-do-list just gets longer. Some days this doesn't bother me. Some days it does.

3. I had my first hangover post- pregnancy/baby. Let me just say that it takes a lot less to qualify being hung-over when you haven't been on top of your partying game in 14+ months. I'd also like to add that it made me never want to drink again and actually mean it. (I had a beer this weekend. Go figure.) How did I party like I used to and actually function the next day? Why did I ever put my body through that? Taking care of a teething (read: non-napping) infant while you have a wine-hangover is my definition of hell. NOTE TO SELF: NEVER again, ass hole. You just aren't cool anymore. Get over it.

4. This isn't really a tidbit as much as it is a question: Do you think it's okay to bitch-slap people who ask you if you've lost all of your baby weight yet? Or (random) people who think it's their business to ask me if I'm breastfeeding? Because I think it's absolutely okay.

5. Am I the only person in the world who doesn't like pumpkin spice lattes? They taste like metal. And to be honest, it doesn't even taste like real pumpkin. It not tasting like real pumpkin probably has something to do with the fact that what makes it taste like 'pumpkin' is actually just a bunch of shit chemicals that they call flavoring. Am I the only person who is completely grossed out by that?

BONUS. Today is day ONE of giving up sugar. I am doing this for a variety of reasons but primarily because I just don't feel good when I eat it. Goodbye salted caramel gelato. Goodbye, nightly scoop of Nutella. It's been real. If my posts over the next week or two seem bitchy or grouchy, blame it on sugar-withdrawls. This is absolutely going to suck.
