I know I came up with a sure fire plan to use questions from the coffee table book when I'm feeling writers block for blog posts. Then I keep forgetting to look for questions to use as a starter. So then when I have time to blog I'm all, "I'll just blog about what's going on in life!"
The truth about that is that you pretty much know and I fear I'm getting boring if I just keep posting "Work is awesome!" or "I'm still running!" So then I just don't blog. But that's just as boring. Ah, you vicious cycle you! So instead of being thought provoking in answering a coffee table book question, or boring you with running stories (I did 8 miles this past weekend, for those of you curious!), I'll do a little random thoughts for the day.
1) My parents were watching my nephew this weekend. While he physically exhausts me, he's also so cute I can hardly handle it and sometimes find myself just squeezing him with the biggest hug I can because it's all I can do from dying from my heart exploding with cute overload. He's 4 and says things like, "Are you ready to rock?" and "I'm the dice man, OH!" (Yes, as in Andrew Dice Clay). He's so weirdly wonderful I don't even know what to make of him, but in the mean time I love every little bit of him to pieces.
2) I held a bake sale with Nicole to raise some money for Team Challenge and while it was a good result, I can tell you this takeaway from it. Be nice to people outside the grocery story. If they're selling stuff or trying to tell you something, just be nice. You don't have to talk to them, you can politely say "no thank you" as you walk briskly to avoid their message. Here's what you don't need to do: avoid eye contact (we can still see you), yell something rude (we're here to raise money for a non-profit about colon related diseases, keep your gluten-free campaign outta here), tell unnecessarily long & unrelated stories to us (we've got other customers to serve, sir). I was rather astounded at how rude some people can be and trust me, we weren't holding guns to anyone's head demanding a purchase of a cupcake.
