Life’s been a bit of a blur lately if only because not much is happening and all of it is blending together. Thus I often feel like I don’t have anything interesting to report back on.
Your mother’s taken up lettering and making the house more homey. It’s something I’ve always neglected, but after living here for six years, she wants to make it feel like home. She’s been testing paints on the wall and even put up some wallpaper in one corner of the house that was a cross between a practice run and personal activity one afternoon while we were in a fight.
Your mother has also been catching up on pop culture by binge watching shows like Heroes or This is Us. She’s now also reading the A Song of Ice and Fire. The one show we watch together – like can’t wait to get you to go to sleep so we can watch it – is Game of Thrones. Sadly, it’s coming to an end and this final season hasn’t been great in our opinions.
Other shows we’ve enjoyed over the years, which I hope you’ll one day watch include Homeland (at least seasons 1 and 2), The Wire, The Leftovers, and Rectify. I also personally enjoyed Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.
In between all this, we’ve had some more hemming and hawing over what direction we want to go with your education. Probably more a philosophical debate about whether we want you in a more socioeconomic homogenous school that’s more focused on academics vs. seeing some more diversity…i.e., private vs. public school. Anyway, just a lil flavor of life these days.
