Three Things Thursday: Too tired for anything but .gifs (hard g, duh)

1. You guys. I am so tired today. I didn’t stay up late last night and I stayed in bed longer today. Just tired.

WHHHHYYYY am I so sleepy?

How I felt 30 minutes ago

Current status


2. I’m still struggling to find balance in my new routine. I want to fit in exercise, writing, editing, spending time with the beer guy and the Bean, and keeping the house in the kind of shape that I wouldn’t be embarrassed if someone randomly dropped by. So far I am succeeding in doing exactly zero of those things.

Desired state of balance

Acceptable state of balance (still a little wobbly)

Current situation


3. It’s all a little crazy-making. Surprisingly, though, not the crazy making of having all the time in the world to write, edit, keep house, exercise, and spend time with my loved ones. I have some mild anxiety about my book schedule, but it’s not as all-consuming as the anxiety over the winter months was. (Partially because of the sun and partially because of the paycheck.) But still…

Me: 85% of the time

Legit question

Do not try to make me feel better this way…maybe just send a martini and a time machine.


Thank you, Harry! (Although, I’m a Ravenclaw…)

Three (3!) Things Thursday

1. I am reading a book on leadership, and came across this passage:

Umm – so except for this book, everything else I’ve read has been smutty vampire or werewolf paranormal romance. I am not at my most intellectual right now. And I’m pretty sure the values they teach are loyalty (to your pack and/or sire), the value of a good sword, and that you should always kill someone to make an example out of them to discourage others from coming after you. This is not necessarily the message I’d like to impart to my team.


2. A couple of weeks ago, after (yet another stellar swim! I love swimming! Last night I swam 1800 yds – i.e. more than a mile!), the Ambitious One (my awesome swim partner) brought me a wee little birthday cake! It was so adorable! And tasty!


3. I also received in the mail the official signed approval sheet for my capstone project!

Yes – you may call me Master, if you wish.


Happy Thursday, y’all!

Three (3!) Things Thursday

1. I’m pretty sure that Alvie Bean is having a major growth spurt, which in turn is causing my belly to have a major growth spurt, which causes discomfort and exhaustion. I’d be angry, but I think it’s futile to be angry at a fetus.

2. I had a mildly crappy swim last night, due to the aforementioned discomfort. BUT – I did get in the water for about 25 minutes, even if the swimming wasn’t great. AND, in the locker room after, a woman said she was really impressed w/ how well I was swimming for a preggo. She then ruined it – she asked when I was due, and when I said the beginning of April, she was shocked & asked if I was having twins. I’m just short-waisted! I am 7.5 months pregnant with only the one baby.

3. I am training a new employee this week, and I think she’ll be great. However, it’s so hard for me! I could do it faster myself! I am a terrible delegator. I know in the long run, it will be better, but for the next few weeks, it’s going to be hard to relinquish control. I told her that this was a limitation of mine and to let me know if I was getting to micro-managey or back seat drivery. I hope she actually does tell me. I don’t want to be obnoxious.
