LIFE LATELY | February 1, 2020

I haven't done one of these in a while, but really, we haven't been up to much. I officially have cabin fever and I'm maxed out on winter. Which is why I've made a pretty big push to leave my house these last two weekends. Nothing crazy, but I have to get out.

I also made a note to tell you guys about how we finally got Duke on a great sleeping schedule and how he was consistently sleeping until about 7:30 every morning and for the first time in his life, sleeping straight through the night. And then as I write this, he popped out of bed at just after 5am. I get up at 4:30 most days and I was downstairs brewing some coffee when I heard him calling my name. Anyway, it's just a reminder to knock on wood before you let the universe hear you celebrate anything.

Yesterday I took Duke to see Toy Story 4. The theatre in Frankfort runs $1 kid movie showings on Saturday and it's been so fun this winter. Gives us something to do and it's a buck, so it's low commitment if he just can't sit through it. So far though, he's done really great.

Toy Story 4 bummed me out though. I won't spoil it if you haven't seen it, but the ending just felt really sad to me. It was even worse than the holding hands scene on the incinerator belt in the last movie, which had previously felt like the most emotional animated scene of my life.

Duke loved it though. Candy and popcorn and a motorcycle riding stuntman character named Duke- he was in heaven!

Popped over to the bookstore for a bit. The owner brings her poodle dog, Suki, into the store with her in the winter and Duke loves to say hello while I browse the new books.


Also very cute:


I bought a new phone case. I wanted this one - with the battery pack built into the case - around Christmas time and sadly they ran out of stock. When I got the email that they were back on the website, I just scooped it up. No regrets.


Superbowl tonight. Neither Ryan or I are particularly interested in football, but it's a cultural thing we like to be a part of and it gives us an excuse to eat fried food and pizza, so we watch it every year. I'm here for the commercials and I know with my heart that JLO is going to turn it up at the halftime show, so I'm looking forward to it.

Related: has anyone watched the Swifty doc on Netflix yet? I'm about a third of the way through and deeply invested.
