Some Friday Thoughts.

1.  I've been really bad about taking pictures lately. Blame it on the lack of daylight, my lack of energy... but I just can't blog the boys without a picture, so I haven't been.

2.  I do have a running list of really funny things they say that I'll post someday.

3.  I have not posted the last two monthly pictures because I can't get those boys to sit still. The end of an era... for about 5 months, then we'll start again!

4.  Can we talk about Downton? Have we reached the point where we can talk about the spoiler-y things? Would you like to join my "Boycott Dan Stevens" club? How dare he leave us like that.

5.  Officially, I think I love Ben and Leslie more than Mary and Matthew. Have you seen a sweeter couple? Vic and I agree--if you don't love each other and like each other like Ben and Leslie, you need to do something.

6.  I've sometimes been blogging over here at our somewhat functioning RV Parties blog. Vic might blog too. Ask her nicely.

7.  Braden hugs me when I pick him up.

8.  I also haven't taken a single picture of this poor baby bump. I tend to have reverse body image problems when I'm pregnant and think that I'm not showing when everyone around me totally knows that I am.

9.  I've started using a program called Antisocial on the old lappy that you can set to block websites that suck your time away--I've occasionally been setting it to block Twitter, FB and Yahoo at night when I'm trying to get work done and keep looking for something to read and distract me.  You can use it free for awhile.  It's pretty much just some built in self-control. Which leads me to my question for you...

10.  Really important question: what tabs are always open on your browser? I really want to know. Always open for me: Gmail, Google Reader. Sometimes open: Etsy shop, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest.  The rest of the tabs function as a TO-DO list--currently I have my shopping cart at Children's Place, and article about pregnancy strength training, my shopping cart for ordering felt, and a Google Doc about the boys' birthday parties.

So really tell me, what tabs are open on your browser? I'm highly interested.

  1. 2. I love reading the sweet things kiddos say.
    5. Ditto.
    6. I'm adding a circle fan to Graham's party hat just as soon as I can get to my mom's scorer. I was almost board enough yesterday to attempt it without the help.
    10. Gmail, Pinterest, Shutterfly. Obsessive email checker (more than ten things in my inbox makes me itchy), bored pinner, way behind baby book creator (nearly done journaling!).

    1. Oh use the scorer. It's SO SO much easier.

      Are you making the baby book on SHutterfly?

    2. I am. I am waiting for a response from them because I really want the lay flat pages, but the book is 91 pages. Will it be three feet tall??

      Delete
    3. It will probably be taller than your child, for sure.

    1. Espn? Funny Carrie. I don't know if I should feel bad that all my news comes from the internet.

  5. Fun question, Rachel. Right now I have these tabs: a job board, a specific job application, a blog called "Renegade Mothering," a blog about St Louis restaurants, gmail, a class site, weather.com, and Google Reader.

    I often have facebook and pinterest, too, but I have been trying to log out more and not just leave them open. Less temptation that way.

    1. Logging out of FB is a good idea too... an extra step rather than just closing the tab!

      Delete
  6. I don't keep any tabs open. Does that mean I am a dinosaur?

    1. It probably means you have a healthy relationship with the internet. :)

    1. I think I'm ALMOST over caring how many people read my blog... oh it's silly. You have to watch Parks and Rec! It's funny and adorable.

  8. Tabs: Women's Vitamin/Supplement Information, Forums about the same, movie site Matt's downloading some movies for Dinah, 'Suits' theme song words, Matt's email, Google docs, and Pinterest.

  9. Yes, let's talk about Downton. A huge drawback to writing a screenplay as an ongoing endeavor is the whim of the actors. Julian Fellowes justified Dan Stevens decision, "However, he argued that portraying a contented marriage between Matthew and Lady Mary would have been of little interest for viewers." Ha! Every time I saw Mary and Matthew on screen I couldn't get over how sweet Mary was and I loved their teasing of one another. How many marriages get portrayed on tv that are sweet and tender? Blimey. *Sparks flying around**
