i am loving c.jane's life story installments. each one has inspired me so much. to write, to record, to find out my truth. so thanks mrs. kendrick, i can't wait to read you each morning. i've spent today trying to figure out what one word would describe my childhood, like she did, and i can't do it. and i'm super jealous that hers is full. that's a really good one to have.
this article in the ny times shared by mara is pure truth. read it! it alludes to the type of therapy i believe in and want to practice (emdr). our brains have been creating neural pathways for everything we have ever learned since birth, whether right or wrong. some of the latest research in psychology shows that there are ways we can "rewire" the distorted cognitions into healthy truths which in turn leads to healthy behavior changes. so so hopeful and good!
as for me and my house, things were peaceful today. cate and i met grant for lunch and then us girls took off to thrift the afternoon away. we came home, painted nails, made dinner, and then i got to have a great talk with grant while cate was in the shower. he is so logical! thinks so differently than me! i'm an obsessive, emotionally crazed person. i need his advice and treasure it like gold. i've been kind of grumpy with him for the last few days, so reconnecting tonight felt really good. also, laughing at new girl together was pretty good, too.
last thought: i am so baby hungry i could die. cate and i have watched father of the bride part 2 a lot lately. today she said that she thinks i'm going to be nina and she's going to be annie. yep, i said, you're probably right. if you've seen that movie, please share a laugh with me. and if you have not seen that movie, shame on you. now all that remains is to wait the less than twenty four hours till my sister returns home from her too long european vacation. that will be good good good.
