I love the smell of our CSA bag and can't wait to cook exciting, healthy things with odd vegetables. I hate the fact that they left out the kiwis and I don't want to bring it up and be the whiny new person.

I love that I spent 80 minutes playing tennis this afternoon. I hate the way my stomach looked in a photo a friend took of me climbing on a playground this morning, which made me realize I am apparently 15% larger than my brain thinks I am, which would explain why I have bruises on my hips from running into doorknobs.

I love listening to my children laugh and sing. I hate listening to them do pretty much anything when I'm trying to think, which I want to do more and more these days, foolish creature that I am.

I love putting the baby to bed, snuggling him and making up funny new knock-knock jokes that end in POOP. I hate the way his hair smells after he smears ketchup in it.

I love that tomorrow is Thursday, which means I get 2.5ish hours to myself in the morning. I hate that it's almost summer, and I won't have that luxury. But I love that my mother's helper will be out of school soon.

I love that we finally have Venture Bros. season 4 vol. 2 to watch. I hate that I can't stay up all night watching it because I clearly can't function on less than 8 hours of sleep, as evidenced by today, which was half TODAY IS THE BEST DAY EVER and half TODAY IS IMPOSSIBLE, if you couldn't tell.

I love how busy my life is right now, how full of possibilities and interesting pursuits. I hate the associated stress from saying YES to too many things and then all of them being due in the next two weeks and involving dangerous chemicals.

I love blogging and writing and social media. I hate that I can't do any of them right now, because it's bedtime, and I still have to go shower off the tennis stench.

Night, all. Sleep well, and may you dream of cupcakes.

80 minutes of tennis? GO YOU! Me and sports do not see eye to eye.
