One of my blogging goals for 2017 is to include more personal posts. So I’m starting a weekly “zeecap” post to share what’s been happening this week. Sorry for the cheesy title, I’m open to suggestions.
Anywho, here’s our happenings for the week ending Jan 20, 2017.
These cups from Target
There are no parts. I repeat, there are NO parts. Just a cup and lid and nothing leaks. No weird valve rubber things to get moldy. Why didn’t I find these 2 years ago? Yes, these awesome cups are at the top of my list because when you spend most of your day caring for people 2 years old and younger, things like cups with no parts are actually very exciting.
Eli starts to crawl
Baby is on the move. It’s crazy how something like crawling seemingly happens over night. Eli has been spinning himself in circles for weeks, then all of a sudden he finally figured out the coordination to actually move forward. He’s so excited to be able to keep up with his big brother…. I guess it’s time to baby-proof again. Other than that, both kids are congested and sniffly. I’m spending the weekend disinfecting and medicating. For my favorite tips for cold and flu season, be sure to check out this post.
Is this really happening?
Inauguration day… I’m still holding out that this is an elaborate promo for a spin-off of The Apprentice. Or a relaunch of Punk’d. Either way, this has certainly been on my mind all week. I generally stay out of politics, as I don’t believe that I’m educated enough on every political issue to feel that I can have a well-formed opinion. However, I am a strong believer in leading my children to be good people by example. That’s the part I can control, and that’s what I’ll keep doing.
I’m spending too much money on lunch
One of the downsides to working from home…. Sometimes I just have to break free and that usually results in me spending money on lunch. I need motivation to stay home and eat something here. I’m working on it. Any tips welcome!
Winter sure has me wishing for more sunshine. I’m counting down the days until the vacation I should have taken 10 years ago with my friends but we were all broke college kids.
Thinking, Fast and Slow
I got this book as a Christmas present and I’m finally getting into it. Although it’s a heavy read (I guess anything is a heavy read compared to the Huffpost articles and Instagram captions that usually fill my days, haha), it’s actually very interesting. Daniel Kahneman dives in and waters down human behavior and why we think and react to things the way we do. I hardly have any free time and this book is really long, so I hope to finish it by the end of 2017.
That’s all I have for this week, folks. Have a great weekend!
