// Cory and I are always looking for ways to save money. We love saving money. After reviewing our budget for 2015, we realized we could get by with cutting out cable and simply paying for Netflix and Hulu [plus another thing that I can’t remember the name of, but it’ll allow Cory to watch football. Awesome.] Edit to add: It’s called Sling TV!
Anyway, we’ll be saving about $100 each month. Hell yes. That said, it means we’re getting rid of our DVR. [Cue: heart palpitations.] While I can watch all my trashy shows on Hulu or Netflix, we’ll be losing our recording of our House Hunters episode! It used to be available online, but now it’s not, and I’m kind of sad.
// Not that my life completely revolves around television (just in the winter) but have you seen Transparent? It’s such an honest, heartbreaking, comical show and my only complaints are that they episodes are 30 minutes long and the second season probably won’t be available until I have a toddler.
// I had a realization the other day: some people eat the tip of the banana. I, certainly, am not one of them. Oh, gross. No, no, no.
// I’ve reached the stage in pregnancy where I believe Mother Nature is preparing me for sleepless nights. I kid you not when I say I’m up every 60 to 90 minutes to pee. I cried the other night (morning) around 2:30am because I was just so fucking tired. You know that feeling, right?
// Do you ever spend way too much time looking at [read: critiquing] yourself in front of the mirror? Like, you get your face right up to the mirror, closer than it would ever be with any human being, and fret about what you see? It’s not healthy, but it happens.
// My fingers are swelling, so I took off my claddagh ring and my wedding rings. I’ve worn that claddagh every day of my life since fifth grade, and I never take off my wedding rings. Thus, I feel totally naked.
// I’m implementing this “novel” idea of asking for what I want. Like, no mind games or passive aggressive bull shit. Straight up saying: I want X. and seeing where it gets me. [So far, so good.]
// Honestly, I can’t wait for it to be Friday at 5pm. I am so over this week.
