wit & whimsy

What I’m reading: Fun Home by Alison Bechdel and Cecil and Jordan in New York: Stories by Gabrielle Bell. Good reads.

Offspring memo: uh oh, our second clothing purchase. Hope this doesn’t become a problem! I’ve been good about refraining until lately…

Offspring memo: Almost 34 weeks now! Bump still seems small but I’m assuming I won’t have that to “complain” about by end of summer.

What I’m reading: Paul Moves Out and Paul Goes Fishing by Michel Rabagliati.

What I’m Reading: Good Eggs by Phoebe Potts and Cancer Vixen by Marisa Acocella Marchetto.
Good Eggs was heart-aching and reminded me of the tough time we had last year, overwhelmed and trying to stay hopeful as we went through fertility treatment and I had various procedures and surgeries, trying to conceive. Lately I’ve had unsettling fears creeping up on me, as we near my due date. It probably doesn’t help that the topic of fertility seems to pop up in every single book!

What I’m reading: Meh. These were okay; liked Relish better than French Milk. Found it disturbing how often she gushed about and consumed foie gras. Also couldn’t relate to a privileged girl in her early twenties, constantly talking about traveling and fine dining.

What I’m reading: with the state of brain fog I’m in, I figured graphic novels would be the way to go over the next 6ish weeks. I was a bit overexcited and click-happy, putting items on hold, and needed Ray’s help carrying everything home.
First up was Clumsy by Jeffrey Brown; entertaining and relatable at times. Next, Laika by Nick Abadzis; I spent the afternoon crying over her and am now eating my feelings.

I have an unnatural attachment to my NARS blush (a friend took me to a department store and helped me pick it out in my first year of university and it’s lasted me for the past decade!)… but finally got a new one. It’s an upgrade: Benefit #Benetint tinted lip and cheek stain. I feel so fancy😘. Can’t bring myself to chuck the old one though…

Offspring memo: Ray can’t stand how I go around with filthy glasses so the other day he grabbed them off my face to wipe them down. I immediately (immediately!) started searching all over the house for something: my glasses😮. When I asked Ray, “have you seen my glasses?” he was stunned. BRAIN FOG!
Also, we purchased our stroller and I’m going to need to a lot of practice… Otherwise, I’ll be stubbing the toes of everyone I pass on the sidewalk.

Offspring memo: the one and only article of clothing we’ve purchased for Adam and adorable gifts from a sweet friend; not girly hand-me-downs from his female cousins but his very own!
