I can't find my phone charger. My iPad charger works for my phone too, but I legitimately think I threw it away when I was cleaning off the counter after chopping up a bunch of vegetables last week.

I haven't read/bought a single pregnancy book. I use the What to Expect app (which I have found typos on and that annoys me because how can I trust their credibility then?) and have just done a lot of reading online. Everything else has come from doctors. Since I'm super skeptical of "how to get pregnant" books, I figured I'd just go with my gut.

I've spent the better part of the last month trying to nail down when the recycling pick-up is here. We have a trash can and a recycling can that are both picked up by the city (both have the UW logo on them, in case you doubted what I said yesterday about the university running the town). I *think* the recycling pick-up is every other Monday. We have a ton of cardboard (thank you baby gifts!) that I've painstaking cut up and broken down to the required size and I just want it to be all picked up so I can refill the can. The neighbors have theirs stuffed with styrofoam and have not cut the boxes down to the correct sizes. But I don't want to be that person.

I don't understand how people don't have baby names ready to go by the time their kid is born. You have MONTHS to think about it.

I have been terrible about checking emails ever since this whole Blogger comment debacle began back at the end of May. Since I got Disqus, I just check my posts for comments and if I get emails about anything, I always forget to respond now. I've actually been horrible about keeping up with people in the last month or so in general. I expect that this will get worse. 

I don't like Subarus. I have no real reason for it? Scott has offered, more than once, to trade in my RAV4 on a Subaru and my answer is always no. I would rather hold out for something else if we're talking about trading in a car later on and aren't ready to upgrade to something I really want at the moment.

Does anyone else just ignore text messages? I don't like this about myself but I'm really bad at checking/answering and sometimes I'm just too pre-occupied with all the other things we have going on. Like, I just can't get into a texting conversation, you know? 

I don't miss my job at all. Like, not even a little bit. I know I'll go back to teaching eventually, but it won't be in this part of the country. 

The whole state of Colorado is basically burning down, but many there are concerned about where/when/how they can light off fireworks. I will never understand the draw of fireworks. Like, I really don't get it. 
*Also, the fire that has destroyed 104 homes in the last few days was started by an illegal immigrant. That might be worth having a conversation about, right?*

Tomorrow I think I'm going to bake some cupcakes for the 4th, even though we don't have any plans. At the least, I can freeze them and have them on hand. You never know when you'd like a good frozen cupcake, right?
