This Week’s Babble

Random thoughts, observations, and conversations from the week of February 24, 2014.

You know you’re married to a bike nerd when you find a bike in your bathtub.

Since when do I voluntarily scope out recipes for brownies made with zucchini?  Someone has hijacked my brain.  I’m sure of it.

Winston was asleep and began twitching, obviously dreaming.  After several moments he began to meow and chirp as he continued to twitch with his eyes closed.  When he finally woke up, he looked around the room with a discombobulated expression.

It makes me wonder, can cats tell the difference between dreams and reality?

Cat dreams:  where they always catch the red dot and everything they touch turns into an empty box.

Today I purchased a wedge of bacon cheddar cheese.  I haven’t stopped drooling since.

Treadmill run:  Four miles (first time ever!) in 39.5 minutes.

I love what I do at work, but management is so dysfunctional that it’s easy to get caught up in a web of complaining and ranting.  It makes the office feel toxic at times.

I promised myself that every time I would normally complain to someone about something work-related, I would withhold and write my complaints in my journal instead.  I want to contribute less to the poisonous vibe in the office.

By the time I got home from work, I no longer felt the need to write down what I’d wanted to complain about throughout the day.  These things are all in the past, and though annoying, they weren’t so significant that they truly affected my life.

What an amazing revelation.  Just let it pass.  Some things only “matter” in the  moment.
