I'm sitting here eating an avocado, salsa and black bean sandwich and drinking an iced soy latte with an extra shot from Biggby (both super tasty), and that makes me think how much life has changed in the last year. Look at me drinking extra caffeine and eating vegan! Last night I took a bath, and I swear every time I get out of the tub I think about the night I came home from the hospital and thought it was a great idea to take a bath and Eric had a really hard time getting me out of the tub (literally, physically). Man, it's good to be alive...and to be able to bathe myself and climb into and out of the tub with ease.
I need to be cleaning the house right now, as Maeve naps and Chloe schools, but I sooooooooo don't want to. Yay livejournal, thanks for being a tool of procrastination still today.
I was going to write last night, but I got booted from the project I was working on. As much as I wanted to be done with that one (I hate scoring tests that have multiple criteria and too large of point ranges, but also I hate making half the money for working twice as hard), I hate failure. I got kicked out of the system for having too many non-adjacents even though my stats were really strong and my non-adjacent percentage was 95.7% (the cut-off was 96% and they don't round up apparently). Anyway, I got to take a bath and go to bed early, so that was nice, and I wanted to be done scoring that test, but...like I said, I hate failure.
Tonight I get to score lead for a change of pace. I think the pay for this one is mildly not so good as well and the effort will be more than lately, being in charge and all, but I do like to lead sometimes. Once in a long while. It's also a math test instead of writing, so that will be super different. Brain don't fail me now.
It's Teacher Appreciation night at Chipotle tonight, and since it's Eric's probable last year being able to partake, we were going to go. But I have all the ingredients to just make our own and the girls don't seem to like it (sadly), so...torn between wanting to go easy and take advantage of a good thing yet wanting to use up some of the stuff in the fridge and actually have a dinner we all might eat. Thinking about Teacher Appreciation week made me think of my times in FL and how nice some students and parents were and so I took Chloe out to get gift cards and chocolate for her preschool teachers today. No matter how small the surprise is, I think we all like to be appreciated, right?
On our way to Target to pick out gifts, I was quizzing Chloe on what things I like so she would know what to get me for Mother's Day (see who I'm really talking about when I say "we all like to be appreciated"?), and it was amusing as fuck (to use a Gato-ism that just popped back into my mind). Random sidenote, having recently perused journal entries and started thinking about people from the past, several catchphrases popped into my head the last few days. Among them, "bull butter" and well, it's eluded me now, but some other Jay-ism. Anyway, back to Chlo...so she thinks my favorite drink is lemonade, my favorite food is salad, I don't eat candy, and she doesn't know what kind of things I like to wear or read or play. I thought for sure she'd guess right on the coffee, but no dice. She did, however, nail my favorite color, so there's that.
Well, I should probably get to work. And now that song is in my head again.
