Quick Monday Check-In

Hi, friends!

I didn’t really mean to disappear for two weeks, but c’est la vie. I was feeling exhausted and rundown, Vera wasn’t sleeping well, and then Ben’s spring break was last week, so I decided to spend my time doing other things.

Break was lovely. We spent lots of time together as a family, and got a ton of projects done around the house. We also have had fairly decent success with dropping overnight feeding and getting Vera to sleep through the night. And by success, I mean she only cries for forty minutes a night versus three straight hours. Fun times.

Now Ben is back to work and I’m sitting here with a cup of coffee, trying to get back into the swing of SAHM life. My race is in a little less than two weeks and I’m looking forward to that. I’ve been keeping up with running, though not really with strength or yoga, but I’m ok with that.

And on a completely random note, I unfriended someone on Facebook last night for posting GoT spoilers. Yeah, really. He posted literally moments after the episode ended, with a charming little note to the effect that if one hadn’t yet seen the new episode, one wasn’t really a true fan and therefore too bad.

Granted, I had already seen it, so he didn’t spoil anything for me. But that casual “fuck you” attitude for other people’s feelings really pissed me off. Ever heard of time zones, buddy? Ever heard of responsibilities like jobs, travel, and children that might prevent someone from watching immediately?

I’m the first to say that expecting everyone everywhere to avoid posting spoilers for all time is unrealistic, and if you really don’t want to see spoilers you probably should avoid social media. HOWEVER, I think a respectful 24 hours is due. And maybe a little sympathy for your fellow fans.

Has anyone ever spoiled a show/movie for you? How did you handle it? Am I overreacting?
