Thinking Out Loud Thursday : 04/09/2015

Each week Amanda [Running with Spoons] hosts Thinking Out Loud Thursday. A chance for us to do some brain-dump blogging. And to hang out with fun people.

thursdaysHey! Happy Thursday! 🙂 Let’s get this party STARTED!

1 – My apologies for the super duper short post last week.  I totally blame this little guy: IMG_20150405_114919How can you not stare at that cute little face!  We spent most of last week cuddling this little baby.  🙂 For those of you who missed last week’s post, Will, my nephew, made his grand entrance on the 31st, and has completely stolen our hearts! 

2 – We are even teaching him how to take selfies.  #BecauseThatIsWhatAuntsDoIMG_20150405_124448I could for real snuggle him forever and ever.  Perhaps that’s the best thing about a nephew – I get tons of snuggles, and I get to give him back when he starts to cry 😉 

3 – Speaking of crying.  And a total 180 in topics, if you’d like to see me try not to cry, you can watch the video I posted last week here IMG_20150404_103659#ThisIsOurLife #ItIsNotSunshineAndRoses We’ve never been secretive about my husband’s illness.  It just wasn’t ever a real daily issue until recently.  When it became an issue we were in reactionary mode for so long, just trying to catch the pieces of our lives before they slammed into the ground.  We both realized in the past few weeks that we needed more support.  So we’ve been reaching out more.  Mental Illness is a disease just like cancer and diabetes.  If you can’t see it that way, I suggest you don’t follow the link above.  #JustSaying 

4 – Did I mention a few weeks ago that Indy [The Cat] is trying to learn how to sit in peoples laps?  Indy has NEVER been a lap cat.  But in the past few months he’s decided he wants to change his ways.  His only limitation is that he’s a huge cat.  And he doesn’t quite know how to curl up and get comfy in your lap.  IMG_20150401_112117He also seems to choose really inconvenient times to work on his new skill set.  “Oh, you’re sitting down to eat, let me join you in your lap”. “Oh, you’d like to do some work, lap time!” We don’t push him out of our laps (even though I know we could) because we’re trying to teach him that it is safe to jump up and sit with us.  

5 – This week, though, I think I’ve finally learned his real motives.  IMG_20150407_134243“Sitting in your lap means you pet me more.  Plus it inconveniences you.  So, I see it as a Win-Win” – Indy the Cat  #LifeWithCats 

6 – I’m trying to find a good hat for the spring.  I have a running hat, but I decided I wanted a second one, to wear at other times too.  This one came this week: IMG_20150406_144653I like it! However, I think I like it better for running, and my running one better for every day.  I’ve never been much of a hat person, but I think it’s going to happen more this year.  Thoughts on the hat? 

7 – Oh. My. Goodness. These. Socks. IMG_20150405_104503I decided to make a scrap pair of socks – with leftover ends of sock yarn from other socks that I’ve made.  At first I thought I was going to hate them.  But, the more stripes they got, the more I fell in love.  When I wear them I can’t stop staring at them! #SockKnittingAddict

Okay! I think that’s all my brain has this week.  I hope you all are doing well and I’ll see you next week!

P.S. – 

We should be friends! Find me on Twitter and Facebook

    • haahaha I’ve seen cats that do that! I think it’s so funny! It would probably be incredibly distracting, but perhaps a nice heater in the winter?! 🙂
      🙂 🙂 🙂 I’m sure that hat could be knitted in a bigger size! He’s just so stinkin cute! 🙂
