Things I Can't Do Anymore

Thursday, December 19, 2013
Good afternoon! It's espresso and blog time, while my little night owl angel is napping. Aria was sleeping so well for about 2 months…and then suddenly 2 weeks ago it's like she's a different baby. She used to go to bed around 7pm, sleep until about 1am, wake up and eat. Then she would go back to sleep until around 5 or 6, eat and then sleep until 9. It was so nice.
The past 2 weeks she has been staying up until 9pm, and waking up several times a night. Last night she woke up at 1, 2, 3, 5 and then 6. And I had to pump at 2 and 6. Last night was not fun.

I haven't felt this worn down in a while.

From what I hear, this is about the time for her to go through the 4 month sleep regression. Yippee.

Today's post is about things I can't do anymore. I felt inspired by an episode of How I Met Your Mother, where Barney tries to do a bunch of things that he's too old for…He called it the Murtaugh List.

If you haven't seen it, check it out. It's hilarious. I think all seasons are on Netflix Watch Instantly, right now.

Things I can't do anymore:

1. Watch the Real World.
I used to love watching the Real World. Now it just makes my head hurt.

2. Play in the ball pit.
Not because I'm too mature. I'd love a nice ball pit romp! It's because I'm now old enough to know about all of the things that leak out of small children, and how most of it comes from their bottom half. Kids will pee on anything. And some adults.

3. Pay money to get into a bar.
A few years ago I'd happily pay whatever the cover was for a bar. Now I find it hard to believe any bar is worth 10 bucks just to get in the door. I'll have myself a bottle of wine and sit by the fire pit for free thankyouverymuch.

4. Shots.
The thought makes me want to barf.

5. Wear a thong just because.
If they're necessary for my attire…yes, I can get down with that.
But I've spent wayyyy too many miles in the saddle (on my bike) to intentionally wear anything that is uncomfortable on my undercarriage.

6. Being unhappy.
There's a point in your life where you just ask yourself "If I'm so freaking unhappy, why don't I do something about it?" And then you quit bitching, quit making dumb decisions, and start living your life.

7. Wearing backless tops.

8. Staying in crappy hotels.
I'm all for saving money. I love saving money. I rarely buy something that isn't on sale.
But, I'm just too old to stay in a crappy hotel. I need some comfort in my travels. A nice bed, a big tub and a continental breakfast heaven!

9. Wear pants with writing on the butt.
Also…just, no.

15. To give a shit.

Have an awesome night. I promise tomorrows post will have some real content. I've been list happy these past few days.
