I’ve had three weeks off of grad school and it has been fabulous and a much needed break. I may have not been as productive as I could have been. I haven’t been blogging. I definitely have not been catching up on my reading. I certainly have not been hitting the gym. No, no, I’ve been a total slacker. That said, homemade dinner has been on the table every night, I’m caught up on laundry, the house is fairly clean, the pets and hubby are well-loved, and we are definitely getting our money’s worth for our Netflix membership. I’m loving Sister Wives, Fraiser, The Tudors, and Drop Dead Diva….also, the final season of 30 Rock just came out, yay! I love me some Liz Lemon.
Luna (the new kitty) is settling in and has become a member of the family. We all love her except for Loca. Loca has a death wish for her new sister and is trying to show her dominance which is so adorable. Picture the kitten rubbing against Loca’s side, her long black tail draped across Loca’s white back. Luna is clearly trying to be friends, but Loca raises her tiny lip to expose her tiny teeth as she growls. Luna then runs off and hides under the couch for a few minutes. When she emerges, she tries to play with one of Loca’s squeaky toys…on Loca’s bed. God forbid it! Loca then charges at the kitty with her most ferocious little bark. I rush in from the kitchen to break it up, trying to keep from laughing, because this is serious business.
The last couple weeks haven’t been totally uninspiring. I am enjoying reading other blogs, keeping a gratitude journal, rearranging my house, seeking out #inspiring material, and dreaming about becoming a mom. But, when I sit down to write, my head goes blank. It feels like I have nothing interesting to share. I think my brain is on a three week hiatus along with my homework and it will awaken soon, when I start using it again.
Until then, take a look at my life lately (according to my iPhone) and follow me on Instagram @tobakki.
