Premonition? I HOPE So!

Last night I had a dream. I am not a huge believer in the revealing nature of dreams, ALTHOUGH there have been some exciting dream/revelation situations in my past. But last night I had a dream. A lot of it makes very little sense. But it involved ward choir and people being irreverent, and me causing an uproar (not so surprising you say?) telling people they shouldn't take loud pictures during a church service blah, blah, blah. But when I looked in my reflection in a window, I caught a surprise. One- I was skinny, pre baby, me. Huzzah! And Two- MY HAIR LOOKED AMAZING. My hair has never managed to look completely amazing. Ever. So I am rocking it out at the gym these days, and have a nasty meal plan that involves endless egg white, so I imagine that pre baby me will return one day... but this hair thing? I'm not sure if this is a glimpse into the future, but if so, it would be awesome!

AND... You're Back, Shocker.

One thing I find annoying is the very public, and sometimes irrationally personal, facebook kiss-off. You know what I am talking about. When someone makes the I'm Leaving Facebook Forever Status. Generally, but not always followed by the personal details of just why the leaving is happening. I want to make an important distinction. I am not referring to 'taking a break' from facebook, because who doesn't need a break every once in a while? No, I am talking about the Ugly, Wretched, and Awkward goodbye accompanied by a speech about how it all went wrong, and an assertion, no, A PROMISE, that this is goodbye forever.

And then, in a few months, there is the slinking back. I've often wondered about this. Facebook is a time suck, I get it. And facebook CAN exacerbate unnecessary drama if you perpetuate drama, but I like to live by the philosophy of not saying anything you have to take back. Why come back? If facebook was really so awful, why not leave it at that?

Thanks... I Think?


The other day while my firstborn and I were playing he picked up the Fischer Price Joker and said, "Mommy." Really, Mommy looks like The Joker? I've never done my hair in a green pompadour and I don't even OWN a bow tie... and yet, there it was. It isn't as though we don't have the Fischer Price Wonder Woman, Bat Girl, and Snow White, because we do and I think they make a more suitable representation of yours truly. And, hilariously, instead of any member of the Seven Dwarfs, Squirms picked up Batman and said, "Daddy." At least he knows we go together...
