Random realizations

When my mother was 33 years old she had a first and a fourth grader.
I am currently 33 and have a 2 and a 4 year old.

I've lived in the country, on a farm, in a town, in a neighborhood, in a suburb, in a college town, on a college campus and in the city. They all had their pros and cons, but I really did like each one of them for their own attributes.

My husband and I have known each other for 28 years. That's bizarre to me when I think about it. I met him when I was Xander's age (a couple of months before I turned 5), if that puts things into perspective.

I really want a pet. They're messy and dirty. They take a lot of time to keep up with. They shed. They need attention. They're a huge responsibility. They can be expensive. But, for some reason, I want one anyway. Sadly, my husband does not. He'll most likely win on this least for now.

Fluorescent lights hurt my eyes. We have them in my office and when I come in I only turn on one set. My co-workers know this about me and can often tell who's in the office because of this. I didn't really pay attention to this until recently when one of my co-workers pointed it out.

Washi tape is super-fun.
