Vintage Food

So I still haven't made any new food, but these vintage food ads on have made me feel a bit better about not being your average 50s homemaker.

Mmm Tuna Pizza; not as bad as Sack O' Sauce:

Just when everything was getting calm

There is a world of gross above my eye. Seriously, when my very experienced doctor looked at it he started and said "Oh my god what happened?!" :-) Nice to know I've still got it. So now I'm on high dose antibiotics and freakin' exhausted.

As for what happened? I truly don't know. I woke up Sunday with a throbbing eyebrow that just proceeded to get bigger and grosser. It should be fine, but I may have to see a specialist if it isn't better in a week. Gah!

In baby news, I feel strongly my little man is very close to walking. I am highly unprepared for this, but it will still be pretty cool. Last night we had a "conversation" where he laid his head next to mine on the pillow and made noises at me and I made them back at him for about 20 minutes. It was awesome.

Hooray for me!

Soon I hope to resume posting about food and other actually interesting things and whatnot. I definitely want to get on the mealplan bandwagon ASAP. Things are starting to get back to normal, but the best non-baby thing happening is that I have picked up at least one freelance job that could turn into a regular gig AND it is from home which is awesome because I like being with my baby and dislike most other people. ;-)

Anyway, I can't believe my son is getting so big. He is already in 18 month clothing and continuing to grow. I started sorting out clothes to keep and give away and it made me have the whole weepy "He used to be so itsy-bitsy!" nostalgia even though I really don't feel ready for another baby and even if I did I don't actually want children that close together as I think a large chunk of why my brother and I are so close is that we were not close enough in age to compete with one another. We're shooting for at least 3 and no more than 5 years apart. Obviously, I know there is only so much you can do to control that type of thing, but these are our ideals.

Yay Life!

I'm going to miss my family

We're at my mom's for the weekend. My brother is here and we get to see my dad as well. I love my family so much. I never realize how much I miss them until I'm here. But man, I can already feel my chest tightening at the thought of going home.
