It's been a really good day today. Pea slept in and gave us all some much needed rest. When he did wake up, he was mellow and adorable. Dropping him off at daycare was the easiest yet. The minute we came through the door, he made grabby hands for the nearest caretaker and hardly had time to look up from the toys when I said goodbye. I swear, he was going: "Yeah, yeah, mommy, whatever. Can't talk. Playing."
In the words of hubby when I texted him the good news: "That's my boy!" :oD
After the drop off, I went by the store to find a sale of pweddy flowers. So I bought myself some. They look so lovely in their vase on my table. Did I mention that I love
Then I went home and watched episode 3 of Primeval. Oddly enough, episode 1 and 2 did nothing for me. They left me with something of a 'meh' feeling. But episode 3?! HOLY MOTHER OF... THE ANGST!!! I fear I'm hooked...
I liked Nick Cutter from the first episode. He's just such a great, big ball of angst and episode 3 really fucked with his mind. I LOVE IT!
Stephen is a really vapid sort of guy, who makes me wonder if there's anyone at all in there, under all his make up and spray on tan... But he did show a teeny tiny amount of soul this episode. Left me vaguely intrigued.
Abby always distracts me. She looks so much like either Baby Spice or some weird sort of mannequin, that I always get a little sidetracked when I see her. But she's cute and her accent is lovely.
Connor is my favorite. But then again, I always fall for the nerd.
Helen Cutter is one insane bitch. I love it.
Claudia has totally got the hots for Nick. The drama. Ooooooh.
The dinos... are horrid. But my imagination can easily fill in the blanks. Just like it does with Merlin when the plotholes become bigger than Camelot. I liked the underwater ones of episode 3, though. Pretty scary in murky waters, where the lousy CGI is well hidden. :oP
When I was done watching, I joined hubby in town to buy some more shelves for our "den". Basically the room where we geek out with our computers, books and stuff. Now we finally
have enough shelves to put all of our books out of Pea's reach! HURRAH! Everything looks so... tidy now! It's a little spooky...
When we came home with the shelves, there was another surprise. Our WoW Authenticators arrived today! So not only are we now optimally protected (Hackers be hatin' but mah gold is safe, suckers!) we also got the cute little core hound pup
. D'aaaw. Goes nicely with the Celestial Steed
I bought yesterday. Ahem.
Pea was a champ and charmed his way through the whole day at daycare. Came home, had his dinner and bath, and fell asleep in 5 mins. What a little angel I have. D'aaww.
A few random thoughts for today.
I think I've come to the realisation, that I cannot force my writing. I might feel bad about not finishing things right away, but I cannot write unless the groove is there. So if the groove tells me to write a little stupid ficlet instead of the epic I was working on.. well then, ficlet it is. Whatever gets words on paper.
I've also noticed that everything runs a lot smoother when I make the decisions. Not that hubby doesn't make any, far from it. But when it comes to everyday life, taking care of Pea, going to the store and the general flow of the day, things tend to run easier when I dictate. Makes me feel like a bit of a manipulative bitch of a wife, but whatever keeps the wheels spinning.
So... I think that's about it. Have a great evening, people!
