Mood much improved after swimming, but man am I tired. Goodnight, world.

I feel like bitching today. Not about anything in particular, just meh. There are teeny tiny ants trying to get at Azure's food, but I can't figure out where they're coming from (day #2 of this). Christopher doesn't like cheese or milk. I want to eat, eat, eat today even though I'm not hungry. I was excited about our first swimming lesson today, but now I have a headache. I want to be productive, but I'm too lazy to do anything. It's hot. Once a day, the fridge pees on the floor but I don't know why or where it's coming from.

I'm actually not in that bad of a mood, there's just this underlying bitchiness that wants to be heard.

Lots of pillows or just one?
Just one is fine, but please make it comfy.

What kind of books do you read?
I love science fiction, fantasy, and the occasional thriller/mystery. I wish I had more time to read, but lately if I have more than 10 minutes to myself I choose sleep instead.

What's the weirdest thing you've seen today?
I don't really remember anything weird. I barely remember today. I did see someone I know running with an empty jogging stroller, which seemed weird at the time. It turned out that her son had fallen asleep and was slumped over so far you couldn't see him.

What is the best lesson you've ever learned?
"Far away" is relative. Keep in touch and make the effort, you never know how much further away you may end up.

What's really creepy?
Husbands, sons, and cats who sleep with their eyes open.

What's your current fandom/obsession/addiction?
Farmville, I admit it. I wish it were WoW, but Farmville is so much easier to leave at a moment's notice.

Do you prefer your junk food sweet, salty or savory?
Yes, in that order.

What websites do you always visit when you go online?
iGoogle, Gmail, Facebook, LJ, Blogs of friends.

What was the last thing you bought?
Two tickets to our Moms Club Spring Picnic.

What is your greatest fear?
Losing my family/friends.

Do you get cravings? If so, what do you crave?
Sleep. Cheese. WoW. Chocolate. Coke. Cheese. Yogurt. Pizza Pizza. With Cheese. And lately, Made In Japan.

What do you do to change your mood?
Hang out with family/friends. (These days that means calling someone on the phone or Skype.) Watch Finding Nemo.

What was the last meal you ate?
Dinner. We had some Mediterranean variety of Bertolli pasta and fresh asparagus.

Do you want to learn another language?
I would love to polish up my French to the point where I felt comfortable telling people "I speak French." I'd also like to learn more Japanese.

Five things you can't live without.
Family, friends, the Internet, food, sleep.

Find the closest book currently sitting near you and flip to page 36. What is the first sentence of the second paragraph?
That's kind of problematic as I'm surrounded by 7 bookshelves at the moment. Using the book I'm currently reading, that would be: "You can understand our position-" Neidelman began.

What's something you'd like to say to someone right now?
I love you. <3

What are you looking forward to?
Bed. Goodnight!

And I have no idea how to tag people, so if you're reading this - you're it!

The Bookstore
I made a completely whimsical purchase today, I bought myself this planner.

I'm a sucker for back to school supplies. Unleash me at Office Depot or Staples during the Back to School season and I could quite easily drain our bank account. I saw this planner on Monday and fell in love. I wanted it even though I don't need a planner (iPhone + Google Calendar works very well for me) but I got halfway to the counter and decided there were better things to spend ten dollars on. Friday I was back at the same plaza and went in with the intention of buying my little indulgence. I picked it up, rounded the table, and decided once again that I shouldn't. After all, the cuteness was only on the cover, the date pages themselves were plain, and I didn't really need it. Well, today we were off to the bookstore to buy Jeff a book on Javascript. I had a coupon for 15% off and a coupon for 20% off any children's book (The Cat in the Hat!), so I decided to splurge on the little planner for me. :)

I love my planner, and it turns out there's a ladybug ruler and bookmark in the back too! Excuse my while I go giggle like a little schoolgirl.

Stupid ear pain is back. It's swollen a bit, enough to make sounds a little muffled on that side. I grabbed a Q-tip tonight to poke at it a bit and see if I could figure out where it actually hurt and found a bit of blood. Stupid ear. May go in tomorrow to get it looked at.

Midnight Musings
Ear still really hurts. I wish I had a pin and eyes in my ears and a 100% pain tolerance so that I could drain whatever liquid was in there and get this pressure/swelling to go away. Considered going to the doctor today. Don't know if they could do anything anyway. If it's no better today, maybe I'll pay the $10 to find out.

Christopher still has his cold. I'd be more concerned except I still have it too. It's just a stuffy nose with the occasional sneezing, but I hate that he chokes on occasion because he can't figure out how to breathe. This usually happens in the middle of the night. :P I wonder if we get better but then just give it back to each other?

I have a serious pain in my ear. Ever have one of those blind zits - has no head but is just a large bump? If I get them, I usually get them on my chin. Except today. Today I have on in my ear. So far into my ear that I almost can't feel it with my fingertip. Far enough in that I can *just* feel it with my fingertip, and that HURTS. There's nothing I can do but wait for it to go away. In the meantime, the pressure is increasing and it hurts to close my jaw. Sleeping is going to suck tonight. I sleep on my right in order to face the baby. It's my right ear.

According to the Myers-Briggs personality test, I'm an extrovert. Basically this means I re-energize by being around people. Jeff is the complete opposite, he's an extrovert who re-energizes by being alone. Since moving here, we've both been a little drained I guess. I now sit at home alone most days, my most social activity is a doctor's appointment. Jeff wakes up with me around, I drive him to work, he's with colleagues all day, I pick him up, and then eventually we go to bed. One thing that I'm really looking forward to with our new place is having things settle into somewhat of a routine. Jeff will be able to bike to an from work for some quality alone time, and I can start looking into all of the neighbourhood groups that I keep reading about.

You know when you all of a sudden remember something that happened the night before?

I fell asleep on Jeff last night during the Colbert Report. I remember hearing him say that he was going to do a "Word" but that was it. The next thing I remember was waking up with my head on Jeff's stomach. He was smiling, said that he had found a couple of grey hairs, and made some crack about knowing we were going to grow old together but not knowing it was going to come so soon. I poked him, let him know that first off, it was white not grey, and second at least I still had all my hair! But it just occurred to me...he was playing with my hair while I was sleeping.
