Married with a toddler. A nurse to the littlest babies around, some days I love my job and some days I want to be a housewife. Born, raised, and living in the bay area but I miss thunderstorms in Chapel hill on a regular basis. Tar heel basketball, Giants baseball, wine and food are among my favorite things.

I feel ridiculous even complaining about this so I am putting my non-important venting under the cut.

Max has been asleep for an hour in his crib which is unheard of so, naturally, I keep panicking that maybe he stopped breathing and isn’t actually sleeping but dead. Good thing I can zoom in on the monitor and watch his chest rise and fall allowing me to rein in the crazy.

Taking my glasses off and putting them on the bedside table right before I go to bed always makes me feel old.

One of my favorite time wasters is looking at expensive houses for sale. Today I saw my dream home and at only 6.5 million dollars, it’s practically a steal.

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

Absolutely sickening.

My lovely child decided to skip his morning nap and, instead, is falling asleep while we wait on the doctor for his 4 month checkup. Babies are so good a ruining all my careful planning.

"It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “find your passion” and “know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees."

The view from my lap. I’m pretty sure Max is wondering why he keeps getting squished. In other news, I need a bigger lap.
