Highs / Lows

High: I've been house sitting a lot lately. This is always fun, because basically it means that I get to live vicariously through another family that has a bigger house than I do. It also helps if they have a pool.

Low: Since I pack as sparingly as possible when I house sit, I have basically been cycling through the same 2 necklaces, 2 pairs of earrings, and 5 dresses since July 6th. (Don't worry, I wash the dresses). However, I am looking forward to the end of August when I can move back home and start incorporating more into my wardrobe.

High: The Olympics took place. It was an exciting time that included, but was not limited to, the Fab Five's win, Team USA's gold in Basketball, Lochte's tweets, Missy Franklin's all-american-ness, and Mustafina's face. She will cut you.

Low: The Olympics ended. It's true. All good things must come to an end, I suppose. However, the silver lining in this is that in two years they will be back again. And they'll be in Russia!

High: It's SHARK WEEK. An entire week that is devoted to one of my favorite apex predators. Now we just need a saltwater crocodile week (hello, death roll), and a komodo dragon week. (I would also accept a Big Cat Week, which I think might already exist, and a Snake Week, even though I'd have to close my eyes a lot for that)

Low: I didn't go cage diving with Great Whites this year. Maybe next year.


  1. It is no coincidence that I shared Tracy Jordan's wisdom on Shark Week/life on your fb, then come here to find that it is already on your mind.

    Also, I am looking forward with you to having more clothes to choose from -- that sounds kind of terrible. But hooray for pools! It all comes with a sacrifice, I guess.

  2. Everyone i know loves shark week.

    i'm defective.

    i hate sharks.

    scary mother effers.

  3. You are going to feel like you have the biggest wardrobe ever when you get done with all this sitting on houses! I didn't think Mustafina's face was that scary until you pointed it out....I can't really look at that picture anymore. But....RUSSIA!!!!
