So Chase wakes up at 9 today which ordinarily I would think is fabulous except I told my boss I’d go in to the office today. So I get us both up and dressed and out the door. I realize about halfway there that I have forgotten both my wallet AND my cell phone at home. Thankfully, I had a great scone experiment scone and a cup of tea to sustain me or I never would have made it. We get to the office and Chase’s diaper promptly leaks all over everything including the carseat. Do I have a change of clothes? No, of course not because I took it out of her bag last night to wash and never put it back. So now, she’s wearing a cardigan and a diaper, fantastic. I try to work, but my normally happy baby is fussy and I’m freakin’ hungry by this point and losing patience. It felt terrible. I stuck it out til about 130 and then headed home.
Thinking about this past week, while being able to bring Chase into the office with me is a nice perk, if I had to go in 3 times a week I would rather go alone. Neither of us are very happy with us both in the office I don’t think and I don’t get much of anything accomplished. I met the girls at Xando and finally had lunch around 3 (I caved and ordered another mango mania, but cut me some slack I needed comfort food). It was a great way to decompress. By the time we got home, Chase had had a nap and was ready to play again. I put her in her exersaucer yesterday for the first time and she was like what… is… this?? She didn’t know what to do so I put her hand on one of the toys and she was like oooohhhhh. So when I put her in it today, she was like oh, that toy, I remember and went right for it.
Lastly, I have to comment on that Gwen Stefani song featuring Akon that they’re playing on the radio right now. I want to say that I have never been a fan of hers but Ben got this last album what feels like a year ago (is it that old?) and I’ve been listening to is and it’s ok, I would even go so far as to say I like most of the songs on it. BUT, I caught the video for this song on tv the other day and I was like… oh… maybe I don’t like it. It’s like the difference between reading the book and seeing the movie. I was totally turned off by the visual representation of the song. Not only that, but I totally dated myself sitting there and squinting at the screen and wondering when Mekhi Phifer broke onto the music scene. This dates me because 1) my eyesight is obviously failing 2) now you all know I’m one of those ER die hards 3) I’m the only person that not only can’t visually recognize Akon but can’t identify his voice either.
