I Have Thoughts You Know. . .

I’m that bad kind of mom who allows the children to watch movies before bedtime. I’m not even going to feel bad about it. They are fed, and loved, and then things stay relatively tidy while they watch. Oh, and then they will snuggle with me.

The twins take turns selecting movies. I’m mean, so I always have veto power. Frozen more than once a week is too much. Non-ballet Barbie movies are limited. (I have to be in the room with them, yo!)

Last night, Emily chose Julie & JuliaI Have Thoughts You Know. . . 1. My favorite. (Let me interject that Emily is a hopeless kiss-up. She may or may not enjoy this movie, but she knows that I LOVE it. She also loves to annoy her sister who probably wanted to watch Frozen. Again.)

One of my favorite lines is near the beginning when Julie laments her failure as a blogger. “I have thoughts. . .I can write a blog.”

And then I remembered. I have a blog. And I have lots of thoughts.

Some of them are random and disjointed. Like, in the past month I have blown through more coconut oil than I have in my entire life. I discovered that it is the best eye moisturizer ever for night. I actually use it all over my face. It has never looked better–and no, it has not caused me to break out. Then, I ran out of half and half for my coffee this weekend (and ladies, whole milk is simply no substitute.) So I bit the bullet and tried this Crazy Coffee. It really is amazing. I have been trying to sneak some coconut oil into my diet, and this just may be the thing.

I’ve also been thinking about my work wardrobe. I’ve been at my job for two years and I need to refine things. I’m drawn to the concept of a Capsule WardrobeI Have Thoughts You Know. . . 2, but I’m a bit overwhelmed by the options out there. So there is that.

I also have thoughts about how awesome my husband really is. His willingness to pitch in and often, pinch hit makes my life so much better!

I’m still working out, I’m still not losing weight. However, I feel fabulous and I like the way I look. . .so there is that, right?

My Bestie just moved considerably closer to me (though she is still 5.5 hours away). I’m super excited about this.

I’m annoyed that all of the concerts and plays and track meets and school activities all happen during the last 4 weeks of the school year.

My college kid will be home for the summer in just one month. Phew! That first year just flew by!I love how our relationship is changing, and I am enjoying seeing the great young man he is growing into.

Work is going great and I am in my “busy season” now until the beginning of December. If any of you want to join in on a fun golf tournament this summer, check us out. You will be golfing for a great cause!

So there. . .I have thoughts. And so do you. What are you thinking about lately?
