Friday Wrapup

Let's get to it!


Um, so this week has been a doozy. We started our big move last weekend and are finishing it all up tonight. However, by last Sunday, I was down for the count with a nasty cough that wouldn't quit. By Tuesday I was still coughing and, to boot, now started getting massive headaches to join the fun. So needless to say, by last night, my pregnant, tired, sick self basically collapsed in a heap of boxes and kitchen supplies, becoming a tired, cranky mess that my husband got to come home to after a few drinks with friends. Which trust me, he needed.

So, I'm having a hard time figuring out who's suffering more now - me or him? My friend Beth said that she's going to buy him this shirt:

However, there needs to be an "and sick and we're moving this weekend" caveat there because I swear to the universe that I'm trying SO hard not to be a crazy, awful human. Which is scary, because I'm pretty sure CB is like " these are those hormones we were waiting to kick in, eh?" If only he knew how hard I was trying to keep them at bay.

Anyway, on Monday you will hopefully see a new me, you guys! Or at least a me that is living in just one apartment instead of two? And also maybe work won't try to kill me to boot (see the Video of the Week.)

Which is why.....


....I keep watching this video on repeat. It warms my heart. But only after I was sure this wasn't some awful video where a kitten attacks ducklings (spoiler alert: it's not). Thank you, kittens and little ducklings. You always just know what to do.


This week's book is "All the Light We Cannot See" by Anthony Doerr. Have any of you guys read this? I was talking to my dad about it the other day and he was hesitating when trying to describe it, mainly because I think, as the review says, he and my mom were expecting more. And I've read books like that (my family will recall the "Year of Wonders" nightmare I experienced) - it's not a bad book at all, but you're not quite sure if you're missing something....or not.

So have you read it? What do you think? Click here to check out the review and let me know what you think!


So, this week's Video of the Week is slightly different than normal, but it pretty much sums up my week. Co-workers and I referred to this scene a LOT's very cathartic.


  1. Poor you! I hope you start to feel better and SOON! Too much to do to feel like crap. Perfect shirt for CB :) I LOVE the kitten duckling video, thanks for not posting the one where the kitten kills all the ducklings. Phew! I shared it on my fb. Try to get some rest, feel better and have a good weekend lady! ---Amanda

    1. Thank you!! See, this is why I love my blog empathize and soothe my soul. :-) Glad you enjoyed the kitten/ducklings video! Have a great weekend!

  2. Sorry you're sick, and moving, and pregnant--OK, no, wait, I'm not sorry you're pregnant, I'm thrilled you're pregnant--but sorry you have to be sick and moving while also being pregnant. (I would try to edit that but I don't think it would help!) Feel better soon! At least your area was (partially) spared the snow apocalypse, right? So that's something.

  3. Hahaha I knew what you meant! :-) Thank you! And yes, we were definitely spared the snowpacalypse, so that's something!
    Happy weekend!

  4. How the hell did I miss this pregnancy announcement??!? Did I miss this? Now I'm not sure if I missed this or if I'm just that bad at remembering shit... either way CONGRAT-FRIGGIN-LATIONS!!!
