irl / five things friday, where i talk about my son, some early Christmas presents, and what i've been watching lately
It’s Friday (thank goodness!), which means it’s time for a Five Things Friday! I’ve got a gallon of coffee sitting in front of me, and I’m still in my pj’s, but let’s get this Fri-YAY started!

Grab a cuppa and a seat, and be super happy that it’s FRIDAY, like me!

1 First off, let’s start with my son and the whirlwind of adventure he’s put us through this past week alone. He’s been doing LOTS of sleeping (except for the past couple of nights, in which case he’s been pretty fussy, and I can only attribute that to him getting one of his bottom teeth in!) And last Monday after I came home from work, he threw up on me twice. Another odd thing was that he was unwilling to eat dinner or a bottle before bed, and that was the deciding factor that something was wrong. Luckily, he had a pediatrician appointment Tuesday morning to get a booster flu shot. But by 5:30 AM, he was seemingly more himself — he had a 4oz bottle and another one around 9 AM, and he kept them down fine. He must’ve just had a little stomach bug! Last, but definitely not least, he is jet-setting around the house! He’s figuring out how his hands and knees work in sync to get around, and if he gets frustrated with that, he just does the army crawl.

New toy!

2 Last weekend, my boyfriend, Isaac, asked me if I wanted to open my Christmas present from him, which was sitting in TWO Amazon boxes on the couch. I was hesitant, but at the same time, if he was giving me an option, how could I say no?! I had no idea what it could be, so after thinking about it for a solid 10 minutes, I said I wanted to open it. Little did I know he wanted me to open it early because it was something he wanted to play with, too! He ended up getting me a Nintendo Switch with Let’s Go Pikachu! It was a gift I didn’t even know I wanted. I’m a big Pokémon GO player, but I’ve never played any of the Pokémon games… 😬 So, this being the first Pokémon game I’ve ever played, I’ve been slightly obsessed and have almost 20 hours of game time in it already! Isaac’s barely had any time to play it… Tee-hee. But not only did Isaac get the Switch gaming system, he also bought a brand new PS4 from one of his friends! So now we have that set up in the bedroom, and he also bought the new Spyro game which I am SO EXCITED to play! It’s been so long since I’ve been into video games (Pokémon GO is the only exception, except I don’t know if I would really call it a video game?) but it feels good to be back in the virtual world, even if just a little bit.

3 I think I’ve finally given up reading The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco… I just CANNOT get into it, guys. On Goodreads, I’ve put it “on hold” but I don’t even know if I want to go back into it, honestly. And I hate it. I hate DNF’ing books, but at the same time, I don’t want to waste my time reading something I’m not liking. So I think today during my hour-long lunch break, I’m going to start up Girls of Paper and Fire! And THAT, I am excited about.

“What’s this, mom?”

4We put up our Christmas tree last Sunday, and Rowan loves to look at it! 🎄 He is constantly crawling towards it and touching the branches very gently! It’s super cute. I couldn’t get a picture of him touching the tree, because he always knows when I have a lens pointed at him and he decides to not cooperate. But here’s a cute picture of him “caught in the act” looking at the tree. And looking very adorable in his Halloween pajamas that just barely still fit him. 

5 Lastly, my boyfriend and I have started watching Marvel’s Iron Fist. 👊🏻 I don’t exactly know what to think about it. I like, how with all other Marvel TV shows, there are a lot of other elements from the fellow hero shows that make their way into the story line (ie, Claire Temple from Jessica Jones, Daredevil, and Luke Cage — and while we’re on this particular subject, is anyone else scared to death Jessica Jones is going to get cut, too??? I’m super upset about Daredevil being cancelled! And also other aspects like Madam Gao and the Hand.) I’m just not sure what to make of this show yet… We’re only 4 episodes in, I think, but I need to rewatch the last one because… I… fell asleep… zzzzz.

How excited are you that it’s Friday??? How is your December going, and have you gotten all your Christmas shopping done? (I don’t.) Have you read The Girl from the Well? Have you seen Iron Fist? Drop a line or two and tell me some 5 things! 👇🏻
