The Bathroom Sink

Today as I was getting ready for work I noticed that our bathroom sink was getting extremely gross. I know, that's probably TMI, but I can't start off a post on things that send me into freak out mode without sharing with you one on the top of the list. Seriously, a dirty bathroom sinks I can't handle it. And I've known it needs cleaned for a few days, I just haven't had time. So in the mornings when I'm rushing to get ready for work I get to look at that nasty thing and promise myself that I will clean it when I get home. And then I get home and just want to sit for an hour with Luke before bed instead of cleaning. Oh well.

So here are a few other things that give me anxiety.

1. Having to clean the bathtub/shower. I absolutely hate this. Like probably one of the worst things that come with living on your own. Why have they not made showers that clean themselves? And why is it so hard to clean one? Like before I lived on my own and would hear people complaining about it I wouldn't understand because it didn't seem all that bad. Ugh was I wrong. And having a 45 pound puppy trying to help you doesn't make it any better. Seriously just want to scream.
Thanks Sookie.

2. Pulling by the pump at the gas station. For some reason I freak out and think I am way too close when in reality I am wayyyy too far away. And Nick makes fun of me every single time he is with me when I have to pull by a pump. It's awful. And I realize it every time I get out of my car. But for some reason it just freaks me out. That also includes pulling out of parking spots in a parking lot. This one could stem from the two vehicles I have already hit while backing out of a parking spot. But whatever.

This was just this morning. Perfect example of how the pump barely makes it to my car. At least I'm cautious. 

3. Slow drivers are also theeee worst. Really, what goes through someones head when they decide to drive five or ten under the speed limit? My philosophy on speed limits: they put a speed limit up but really you can go five over. For example, they put 65 up but mean 70 but if they put 70 up then people would go 75 and that's not what they mean. Boom. So please people, at least go the speed limit, but preferably go five over. K thanks.

4. Dirty dishes in the sink. Like why does this exist? We don't use our dishwasher because we never have enough dishes to justify using it. But I cannot handle even just a dirty knife in the sink. I have to clean it. After cooking dinner I never feel like cleaning the dishes but I don't leave them because I hate them sitting in the sink even more than I hate cleaning them.

And then this post turned into me just naming off things I hate so that's cool. Because there are so many things I do love. But after this morning, when I was stuck behind the same slow person for the third day in a row, I made a list of things that send me into panic mode. And then this post was created. So there's that.

Here's a Look Into My Phone

I figured you all were wondering what life has been looking like according to my phone lately. If you follow me on Instagram then you know exactly what I've been up to lately. However, if you don't then I just figured I would fill you in.

Saturday I went to do 3421432 hours of laundry at my parents. I made a pit stop first at my Aunt and Uncles so that Luke could play for awhile. Then we went to cousin Ethan's house to play for awhile. Where I ended up doing all 3421432 hours of laundry. Luke loved it because he got to constantly play with Ethan. He seriously loves car rides too. I mean just look at him.

I swear I thought he was going to sleep for the next week after we got home. I also took a little time to take some selfies with the boys, because duh. Ethan had a few costume changes while I was there as well. He started out as Spiderman, then changed to Optimus Prime, and then ended the night as the Hulk. I love that child.

And then, last night as he does every night, Luke decided it was bed time. Bed time means sleeping on top of my head for awhile. This was alright when he was smaller. However, now he's huge and doesn't fit on my pillow by himself, let alone with my head on there as well. So I decided to take a picture last night to compare to a picture I took of him two months ago. I cannot believe how big he has gotten in just two months. I want him to stoppppppp.

My Favorite Place to Be

There is one place I love to be more than anywhere else. School. Joking, obviously, I hate that place. If I could pick anywhere in the world to live it would probably be Busch Stadium. The atmosphere, especially during playoff games, and the players are my two favorite parts about it. The too expensive food and drinks I could do without, but they're awesome there and let you bring your own drinks in so that helps to save money.

Anyways, Cardinals baseball is my happy season. It may be because they are so good and I can count on them to always be playing on my birthday, but for some reason I love those boys dressed in red and white. If you've been following along since I started this little blog you would know how much I love them. If not, then just check it out here, here, here, and here.

So last Tuesday when one of my friends told me she had four free tickets, Nick and I jumped on them quick! We went with her and her husband and sat on the third base foul line. The entire game I wanted a foul ball to come flying at us from Matt Carpenter, but that never happened. That's okay though Carp (since I know you're reading this) I'll forgive you this time. 

Tuesday night the guys also got their NLCS rings before the game started. It was neat to see that because the hall of famers came back for their rings too.

Friday night was a Cardinals vs. Cubs game and I had bought the tickets back in February for Nick's anniversary present. We started out four rows behind the Cubs dugout in the bleacher section but when we realized one of my friends was also there we ended up sitting three rows from the field in the bleacher section with her. The end of the game was not what I wanted (the Cubs won in 11 innings) but I'm glad Nick enjoyed it because he doesn't get to see them play that often since we live down here. I also got my Michael Wacha bobble head, so that was really all I needed. Well, and maybe a home run ball from Carpenter, but once again, I'll forgive him.

That's Peter Borjous. In case you were wondering, that rhymes with gorgeous. Which is appropriate for our new center fielder. Now if he could just pick up his bat.

And, because we can't get enough sports in one month, we will be attending games 2 and 5 of the Stanley Cup Playoff series between the St. Louis Blues and the Chicago Blackhawks. I will admit, I am a Blackhawks fan and not a Blues fan. But that's because I didn't watch hockey before Nicholas came along and since he's a die hard Hawks fan I just kind of became one too. So hopefully they kick some Blues butt!
