love & hate Friday

The truly wonderful and awesome Janet (of fame) has a ‘Love & Hate’ post feature that she does occasionally. Today I was catching up in my Google Reader (oh what a constant battle THAT is!) and I left a comment answering her question: What are you loving/hating right now? and I decided I might turn it into a post for today. Because it’s Friday and it just seems like a good idea. Hope you don’t mind, Janet :)

love: that I’m inspired to blog more regularly.

hate: that IT’S SO HARD TO THINK UP THINGS TO BLOG ABOUT. My life is just not that interesting most days.

love: that we’re moving to our new house in less than 2 weeks.

hate: boxes. and packaging tape. and anything remotely related to packing, OMG.

love: new clients & new work prospects!

hate: clients who don’t respond to and/or apparently do not read my emails. GAH.

love: that the rain finally stopped this afternoon.

hate: that my hair turned into a big Mom Helmet earlier today when it was pouring.

love: my daily dose of Gilmore Girls reruns, and the fact that I got my mom hooked

hate: that the rest of summer television is SO HORRIBLE. even though yes I DVRd ‘Dating In The Dark‘. and maybe kind of liked it. I kind of hate MYSELF for that.


hate: that there are still 6 weeks until the first (real) Steeler game

love: how Maggie is talking more and more like a grown-up kid

hate: that she loves to say NO and seems to have a listening problem. but that’s normal I suppose. Still: HATE.

love: food.

hate: that I’ve gained 5 pounds in the last 2 months. I wish I hated food.


hate: weekends are never long enough.

What’s on your love/hate list this weekend?

    Oooh. I will have to pen – can you still say pen? or must it be key – one of these!

    I wish I hated food, too, but I think I would miss it too much. I need to love my Nikes as much as I love food. There is an entire post right there but NewBalance already took it and made an entire ad campaign!

    The only decent summer TV we can find is on USA. 3 shows there, Burn Notice (or as JanePitt says, “kablooee!”), In Plain Sight and Royal Pains (growing on us, not quite there yet…)

    Sending you happy packing vibes! Packing I can do. Unpacking I fail (still not done unpacking from moving in with John in college…).

    I don’t really get a mom helmet if it rains or even has the least bit of humidity… I get more of a mom ‘FRO. Which is why I rarely wear my hair down to begin with. :P

    Hope the packing is going well! I showed George the pictures of your new house and said, “Can we find one like THIS next time?” He said, “Wow. And yes.” LOL.

    Love: Husband taking a guy trip, because he deserved it.
    Hate: Can’t fall asleep when he’s not next to me!

    Love: Baby #2. :)
    Hate: Reading news stories about pregnant women who get murdered by some psycho who cuts out the baby and passes it off as their own. Way to FREAK ME OUT.

    Great list. I can relate to the first two points. I have been much more inspired to blog lately but in the past few days I have definitely been in a slump as far as coming up with topics. It is so frustrating.

    I also love food and I love that I’ve been inspired to cook more. I hate that I have been a bit melancholy lately, as well.
