Days off and days in

Thursdays are my saving grace. Even during weeks where the doctor is out of the country and I've spent nine hours at a time catching up on unfinished work, I look forward to this.

  • Watching Gilmore Girls episodes I've already seen a million times. 
  • Explaining what's happening in said Gilmore Girls episodes to Matt... for the millionth time. 
  • Making pancakes for a late breakfast 
  • Taking showers that last longer than 7 minutes
  • Not wearing real clothing until the last possible moment 
  • blawging 
  • Realizing it's nearly 1:00 and I've cleaned the kitchen, showered, made and devoured breakfast, watched three episodes of Suits and Gilmore Girls, thought about doing laundry, and communicated with three of my best friends. 

I think Thursdays are my favorite.

If only there were little birds and wild animals to help me get ready... 

Love, Cami

P.S. Am I the only one that has a day of the week that they just love?

Cranky pants

Last week was hard. I cried at work. That's right, tears, runny nose, shaky voice- the whole freaking package. at work. in front of my boss. on a Tuesday. Because of some meany head cranky pants guy. It seems so stupid looking back on it even just a week later, but at the same time, I can't stop thinking about it. 

It just makes me sad, ya know. Here we are, all players in the game of life and we can't even treat our fellow humans with respect. Life is hard enough with having people tear you down.

I'm sorry that you had to wait for forty five minutes in the waiting room on our busiest day. I'm sorry the pharmacy didn't have your prescription even though I sent it hours before. I apologize that insurance companies require me to get your weight even though we are seeing you for your ears. I'm doing the best that I can.

We're all doing the. best. that. we. can.

There's a quote everyone knows that goes a little something like this:

be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle

Okay, so that was the exact quote. Whatever. The point is I don't think anyone ever has an excuse to be blatantly rude to another human. Listen. We all have trials. We all have insecurities and vulnerabilities and no one deserves to have their spirit broken by an unkind word. No one is better than anyone else. We are all just human. We are all flawed! Be considerate of others feelings for goodness sakes! 

Life is hard and it's unfair and things aren't going to go your way pretty much ever. That's life. But you know what, we're here to help one another. We're hear to love one another. 

Phew. Tangent over. 

Love, Cami

Thursday Things

Thursdays are going to be my "things" day.
Things I love.
Things I hate.
Things I want to eat, or wear, or try.
Things that make me happy,
or things that I'm listening to or watching.

Today I want to share some things that I wish would last forever:
  • Late night back tickles while Matt catches up on Twitter and I try to fall asleep
  • Boy Meets World marathons
  • Homemade chocolate chip banana bread

  • Sunny days in May
  • Thursdays off of work
  • Little faces 

  • Freshly shaven legs
  • A fast metabolism
  • Spring tans- especially this one. I worked hard for this tan!

What do you wish would last forever?
