Oh hello, blog land. Can I tell you how glad I am it is Sunday? I had a totally weird day yesterday. Everything that happened was just off and weird and kind of unpleasant? Do you know what I mean? My parents are away and I have been thoroughly enjoying some home alone time however when I went downstairs this morning to flip my laundry the basement floor was covered in water. Saying it flooded would be super dramatic but there was definitely depths of splashable water in a lot of places. There I was, alone, barefoot, splashing around moving all the shit off the floor trying to figure out what exactly was causing The Flood while having no idea and not being at all sure how to deal with it. Midwifery school is great but teaches you nothing about how to handle lots of other Adult Things.
I called some adultier adults and got a shop vac and figured out some stuff and then on my way around the side of the house I saw that the goddamn evil racoons had a party with my garbage and the was garbage and food waste and slime all over the walk. So I had to clean that up, too. Then I drove to Guelph and had, despite the weirdness of the day, a very lovely brunch with my boyfriend who was supposed to spend the weekend at Way Home but for [redacted] reasons had to be in Guelph yesterday. After that, things went back downhill with scheduling delays, strange interactions, traffic and a complete friendship fail on my part. Driving back from Guelph I was stuck in bumper to bumper traffic, needing desperately to pee and feeling confused and kind of upset, and spontaneously decided to pull off and treat myself to a few hours at IKEA.
all for meeeeee
Please tell me that other people believe going to IKEA for a wander and a hot dog is a form of treating themselves. (You better believe I bought two hot dogs for myself. One is never enough is it?) I may or may not have bought new bedding, which if you didn't know, is one of my guilty pleasures and favourite things to do. I have so much bedding, please help. Then I came home and crawled into bed with a Large Bowl of Pasta, ate it all and fell promptly asleep and had weird dreams about time travel. Let us hope today is uneventful and boring, which would be a big old improvement on yesterday.
Okay enough about the weird day. Sorry (not sorry?) for whining! I'm home alone and my boyfriend is back having fun at a music festival and just...sometimes you gotta feel your feels on the internet, yeah? In other news, please enjoy these links from around the internet, for your reading enjoyment. Have a great day, dudes.
the title of this could be (may be?) seen as controversial by some because of my vocation but damn, is this worth reading: Get The Epidural
I have been making this salad for two years and it is still so goddamn delicious (thanks, Jessica, as literally always)

this. is. important. why being a mom is enough
did you know shifts in personality can occur but, usually over a long period of time
Many studies show that most adults become more agreeable, conscientious and emotionally resilient as they age. But these changes tend to unfold across years or decades, rather than days or weeks. Sudden, dramatic changes in personality are rare.I literally cannot stop laughing at this
okay everyone needs to make this pasta sauce asap because we all deserve some time to just sit and eat damn good pasta on the couch with our wines and our netflixes. On a related note: should I start watching Stranger Things?
Be good to each other. Until next time, xo
