How is it already January 20, 2015?

Today means that I have one more week left of my 30s. Wowee! What am I going to do with those seven days? Well, days one through four will be spent at work; day five will be spent on a car ride to Milwaukee, a plane ride to Cancun and some sort of wheels to Tulum (AO, we gotta figure that part out); and days six and seven will be spent touring some ruins, biking to the beach, and drinking tropical drinks. Or at least that’s the plan. I’ll check back with you later.

Now then, the real task at hand is to step out of this funk that set in around 5:30 p.m. on Sunday. You know what I’m talking about. Oy vey. I don’t want to rehash it, but I do want to give mucho thanks to my stellar cousin Maggie for sending me this gem. It’s easing the pain. A bit. I might have to close my office door soon, though, if the hallway talk goes into play-by-play mode.

On yet another note, Molly’s THIRD birthday is coming up. Can you believe it? Now I feel like life gets real for her so I really need to watch myself. I mean, she’ll now start to actually *remember* all of the zillions of times I screw up. The pressure! My current thoughts about her birthday are two-fold. One, should we throw her a party with her pals from school? Two, it’s at three years old that doctors and nurses start to voice their concerns about a child’s speech. Will she be able to pull it together in the next six weeks so that we can avoid speech therapy?!*

*I don’t think speech therapy is dreadful and I know I’m lucky that we (a) have medical care that will tell us if she needs it and (b) we have resources to be able to give it to her if she needs it. So please don’t think I’m a bad person for hoping that she can pull her speech together on her own. I’m sure I don’t help her by talking too fast. I’ve been trying to work on that when reading to her. “Gooooooooooooooooooooo Doooooooooooooooooog Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!”

    Looking forward to my week with Molly. And your trip sounds wonderful. However a bit short. And her speech is getting clearer but a professional should offer some good advice.

    When you put as leaving your 30s, it sounds so nutty. Forty has been good to me so far, so I’m sure it will welcome you, too.

    What’s nuttier is that Moly is turning 3. I have full confidence in her speech abilities.

    Sounds like you have a great week/month of birthday planned. Enjoy!

After an extremely long and entertaining (for those over 6) retirement party, my little Bear has crashed with her little bear. . . . I’ve heard through the office grapevine that some peeps don’t think kids should be at events like this. And that’s a legit opinion. But it’s not mine or Aaron’s so I think we should be all good. . . . Retirements are so bittersweet. This one was a doozy. . . . #wisconsin #friends #ourkidcomeswithus #wiscobarkid #bearonbear #workfamily #humility #sincerity #honesty #love #b&w #eyelashes
A series I’m calling An End of a Era: Skye Had a Limit. Truth be told, she ghosted on Skye and the gang maybe two years ago so this era has been over for some time, but I’m just now getting around to offloading it. And in doing so, I was reminded of both how much we accumulated and in how many forms. The Etsy pegdoll form, in which she asked me to give them little matching string scarves; the tiny little ones Molly insisted on painting because she saw it on YouTube; the pirate series; the Patrollers as poofy rubber squishy friends; and so many more. I love how kids get so into these stories and characters, but the merch is overwhelming. Still, I got a teensy emotional clearing it all out. As you may have guessed. . . . . #pawpatrol #cleaninghouse #growingup #etsy #toomuchstuff #growingpains #decluttering #endofanera
The answer when I Googled why I couldn’t see as well. I’m no doctor, but this seems to check out. #googledoc #visionprobs #over40
Somehow this pic disappeared from my feed! I cannot stand for such an injustice. The best breakfast sandwich in Madison must be seen and heralded. Blueberry jalapeño jam?!? Who knew?! @ancorakingst apparently. #madisoneats #sandwiches #breakfastsandwiches #sandwichesofinstagram #sandwichesofwisconsin #sandwichesofmadison #ancoracoffeehouse
The new @ancorakingst is everything. #ancoracoffee #ancorakingst #madisonwi #ancora #ancoramadison #madisoncoffeeshop #kingstreetbusinesses
