Favorite Things : April 6 – 12, 2019

favorite things, pregnancy

I am a complete mucous mess this week. I had been coughing all last weekend, but nothing more. Then came the deluge. Usually colds take me out for a day. I get a good night’s sleep and wake up the next day not 100%, but significantly better. I had no idea what fresh hell a cold while pregnant could be. I am barely sleeping and barely functional. I called the ob-gyn’s office this morning asking, “Please, please is there anything I can take to sleep?” The woman on the phone was so kind. I included her in my thankful list today when she said the magic word I had been longing to hear: “Benadryl.”

So this week is pretty low on the favorite things. Being sick, most of my favorite things have involved me curling up on the couch watching Netflix. We watched Solo (which I liked a lot more than expected). Afterwards, we finally got our Prime to work to watch the first episode of Catastrophe. It was a lazy day of epic proportions, which will probably be repeated again.

A week late, but a good compilation of what to read and watch commemorating Kurt Cobain’s death.

Stephanie Case on being a “loser, failure, and quitter” in the Barkley Marathons.

Sarah Sellers, who was second last year at the Boston Marathon, on combining a full-time job with elite training.

My post-dissertation life : busy doing nothing (actually this book sounds really interesting).

Have a great weekend!
