Happy Friday!

It’s finally starting to feel like Fall and I for one couldn’t be happier.

Happy Friday everyone! Hope everyone has a lovely, chilly weekend and a spook-tacular Friday the 13th 👻.

Here’s to Extra Days of Summer!

It may be too hot for this time of year and this Mommy might be about ready to melt into a puddle of warm goo, but there’s at least one little munchkin who isn’t complaining about the ‘extended summer’!

Who needs pumpkin spice season when you can have extra days of summer instead, right?

4 Years?? Really?

Time is a funny thing. Sometimes you look back at something and think ‘I can’t believe that was 4 years ago! It feels like it was yesterday!’ While other times, you’ll look back at something else and think ‘That happened 4 years ago? It feels like much longer!’

And sometimes, you’ll feel a confusing combination of both types of feelings. This is one of those times.

Almost Wordless Wednesday

Lilly loves wearing her ‘traditional’ Pakistani clothes, even though to her, it’s more a costume than a normal outfit. It’s funny how what was ‘normal’ for me growing up is more of a fun Halloween-esque costume for my daughter, but at least she likes it! Learning about the actual culture will have to come with time.

Thought of the Day

When Lilly was born, I couldn’t wait for her to start talking so I could hear her say ‘mommy’ in that cutesy little baby voice, and when she did said it for the first time it was the best feeling in the world.

Now that she’s almost 4 though, I wish that she would maybe say ‘mommy, mommy, mommy’ a little less because after the 4,320th ‘mommy’ of the day, I’m about ready to pull my hair out.

I need more caffeine and little less noise in my life.

The Urge

Every few months or so I get the urge to buy a new laptop and for a few days, it's all I can think about. I obsess over it, research it, even make a trip to the local Apple Store to drool over the latest MacBook. I'll make lists, meticulously go over different models, specs and deals and drive myself to a minor existential crisis trying to answer the eternal question of 'how much memory do I really need?'

After a week or so of battling the urge, I'll start to feel guilty over just how expensive my chosen laptop is, and slowly but surely, I'll talk myself out of actually buying it.

My current laptop isn't that old, I'll tell myself, it's just seasoned. It's not slow, I'll reason, it's just got personality. I'm sure this old thing will last me a few more years, I'll reassure myself, and slowly, the urge will go back into hibernation.

Until next time it'll say, curling up tight in a corner of my mind, I'll definitely get the best of you next time.

On Starting Again

A very wise friend told me that when trying to get back into the blogging mindset after an extended absence, the best thing to do was start with a picture.
I'm sure she meant that start with a picture and follow it with an actual blog post, but I think I'll leave it at a picture for now.
Hope everyone is having a great summer!
