My husband is a people pusher, like Tina Fey’s character Ms. Norbury in Mean Girls.
Except for mostly the only people he pushes is me.
And I do need pushing, sometimes.
He’s all the time pushing me to do better with my health, to work on my writing, to expand my social horizons.
Mostly I ignore him. Let me drive myself insane by obsessing over that lump for a month and refusing to see the doctor! Let me put off working on stories ’til next year! Let me be a loner! Or something like that.
Today, thanks in part to his pushiness, I got to meet fellow bloggers Nerd In The Brain and Not A Punk Rocker. He was worried that I’d back out, since I’m a habitual backer-outer, and threatened to make sure I was where I was supposed to be with the FindMyIPhone GPS thingy. Just kidding on that last part–he barely knows how to make folders, let alone do anything high tech like that. 😉
I’m so glad I met up with them because those are two awesome people! After following both of their blogs for close to a year probably, it was nice to meet two people I felt like I’ve gotten to know via their posts in person. I also got to meet the infamous Pigpool, so I can cross that off my bucket list. (He was everything I imagined he’d be, so be jealous y’all.)
Aaaaannnd I only got lost four times in the whole journey. Fuck you Google Maps for refusing to read me directions!
No kidding, before I left, Sam asked me, “Do you know how to get where you’re going?” I informed him that I had driven to that area on my own once and he gives me the look and says, “You’ve driven many places and not known how to get there again. Do you really know?” I laughed and told him “Of course not, but I don’t need to know how to get places because my phone will tell me.” Naturally it didn’t tell me much of anything.
After we all parted ways, I had planned to go grocery shopping and come home to bake my sweet potato pies for tomorrow. The grocery shopping happened, but not the baking. When I got home, Baby Girl was wailing and pulling her ears, so Sam and I dropped Little Man off at my in-laws and took her to the pediatric urgent care. She has an ear infection and got a prescription. This is the first time she’s ever been sick beyond a cold. And on top of the ears, she fell twice today and got a knot on her head and a cut over her eyes. Bad day all around for the poor thing.
We finally got home shortly before 11:00 and I gave BG the antibiotic and ibuprofen and put her to bed. Hopefully the meds will kick in and she’ll be able to get a good night’s sleep and feel better tomorrow. Since we won’t have to be at my in-laws until the evening for Thanksgiving, I should have plenty of time to bake my pies, as long as nothing else comes up.
That’s all I’ve got for now. I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving Eve. And, I’m going to pretend that I’m on West Coast time for the publishing of this post so I can say I didn’t miss a day of NaBloPoMo 😉
