A) It has been quite hot the last three days. Today takes the cake though, clocking in at (according to my car, which we will consider gospel, since it is my constant) 90°F AT THE BEACH and a balmy 97°F at the house. For comparison’s sake, the average high for November at work/beach is 72°F and 74°F at home.
I’m sure it won’t last and it a couple weeks I’ll be moaning and groaning about how we neeeever see the sun at work and it hasn’t gotten above 65°F in months. Etc. But currently, it is quite pleasant sitting on our patio, which is conveniently west-facing for pleasant afernoons. I’m listening to the hum of the air conditioners at the hospice facility competing with the drone fo the cars out on the main drag. Also, I get a wickedly good wifi signal out here on the stairs in front of the house, considering that the router is on the extreme opposite end, in a closet.
B) Earlier this year, I followed a link on a blog somewhere to this post
It really resonated with me, in the themes of liking life the way it is and not really wanting that to change and yet having my uterus (occasionally) scream BABY at me without any logic behind it at all. It’s quite an epic post, and I don’t hold it against you if you don’t read it. But there was so much written about whether said child should exist!
I continued to follow said blogger, and last night (she got married two weeks ago), she posted a 12-week ultrasound without much to do. At first, I was just surprised, as I had not been expecting that. But then, I was almost, irrationally, angry with her for not having a long expounding post explaining how this had come about after her previous anti-child stance.
Like I said, irrational. And jealous. People keep popping out the bébés, and Mike and I wait, because, financially, we can’t see how we can afford it right now. But telling my uterus that, no, it can’t procreate yet is like telling a screaming toddler that it can’t have the lollipop right now. It just keeps on screaming. Uterus-logic defies all brain-logic.
Anyways, that’s what’s been rattling around in my brain today. I’m kind of finding the challenge of searching for a topic to blog about each day invigorating. We’ll see how I do in a few days 😉
