A little honesty…

Eight days into January blog a day… today: some honesty. Blame the delay in posting today on blogger’s block (and a little babysitting).

I never thought I could love anything(one) more than my dog | Lindsey Talerico-Hedren

We posted late because we couldn’t figure out what to write. Love, Lindsey and Jaxon.

If I’m being honest… there was a time in my life where I was legitimately concerned for my ability to care about others. I used to think to myself — I’m totally insensitive. Here’s the thing: I really love my dog. I’m not like getting her nails done or anything, but I love her a lot. She’s snuggly, she stayed by my side after I got my wisdom teeth out, she always wants to see me, she listens. I love her so much.

She even goes on hikes with me.

So much that I never thought I could love anything or anyone (not already in my life) more than my pup. I seriously used to think that this must be a little what it’s like for parents who love all their kids equally. Except I don’t have kids. I have Bella.

Then this crazy came along…

Nephew Ryder.

And I loved him soooo much. As much as Bella. Probably even more 🙂 And then, two years later, this booger:

New nephew Jaxon.

And I loved him, too!!! Actually my love for both my nephews multiplies x a million every moment I spend with them. They are that good. (And Bella hangs out with us, too). But for a good solid nine months, I wasn’t so sure how I would deal.

A little more honesty…

Most mornings I wake up hating myself for eating too much yesterday and for staying up late the night before for something really stupid. Last night I stayed up until 5am downloading Adobe Flash Player 11.3 for my mom’s new work laptop so I could do my work on it. Last week I stayed up until 4am streaming my TV show so I could watch the season finale.

My idea of heaven includes 24 hours room service and unlimited massages, paid in handshakes or high-fives.

Dentists are the most selfish of all doctors. I’ve never met a dentist that isn’t drill happy — always goes back in for just a little more. But I’ve never met a surgeon who decides to take out a little extra piece of intestine for fun.

Three things that should be free: toilet paper, Spotify premium, and wifi in public places.

A new pair of Nikes can really turn around my day.

Things that make me rip out my own hair: The guy who tries to sell you a membership at the gym, AT&T customer service, tweets from Mark Driscoll and Donald Trump,  gym squirrels, and the DMV.

Nice ideas, bad execution: Transition glasses, shants (the pants that zip off and become shorts), jeggins, ketchup flavoured potato chips.

I like watching “The Bachelor”.

I will look at this picture at least 10,000 more times before I get sick of it:

One more honest thought… babysitting is easier when the baby is cute!
