Review of Tig Notaro documentary

The self titled documentary about Tig Notaro entitled "Tig" was released on Netflix recently. I took a few hours to watch the interesting story about a time of great upheaval but also success in Tig's life.

Brief overview: Interesting documentary into the life of another human struggle with all life can through her way with humor and making it big in the process.

In depth review:  I will never forget the run where I listened to her announce onstage to the world, "I have cancer". Listening was very inspirational and gave me the strange to keep running. The rest of the story that followed was funny in that it is so human.

Tig's story is a perfect example of Murphy's law. It seemed as if everything that could  go wrong did but Tig was able to carry on. She leaned on her craft and colleagues to get her through all of the upheaval.

The documentary also conveys her desire to be a mother and a love story which is surprising. The love story made me think about how I define love in my life. 

In conclusion I really enjoyed this documentary and look forward to more from Tig.

Note: womanly post ahead

Ladies I have found a new app to track my womanly cycles named Kindara. The company who makes this app also is making a thermometer which will wirelessly sync to your phone. No more opening the app to type in your basal body temps.

The user interface is bright and easy to use. The app has the ability to track periods, fertility, mucus, relations and temperature. The have automatic backup and the ability to type in historical data. 
One note if you type in historical data the period and fertility prediction may be incorrect until your first new cycle has been entered into the program (not historical data).

I am very happy I found this app as my old one just wasn't doing the job. 
Try it out and see for yourself.

Houston Bound

I spent some time in Houston recently with my favorite people.

The first part of my trip was a wedding errand for my friend KO.

Bride to be!

She has her second wedding dress fitting so I took the day off and headed down to Houston.
I listened to a great book which I will be reviewing soon. The drive was uneventful except for the road narrowing where they were still working on the washout from the Spring rains.

When I arrived we had some time to kill so we got a glass of wine to split. Her MIL to be was along and it was nice to finally meet her. Then I got to see my gorgeous friend in a gorgeous dress! I cannot wait until I get to post pictures about her special day.

After talking all night my friend let me sleep in and I got up and got breakfast before starting the second part of my journey.

After stuffing my face I headed to World Market to pick up a few things on the way to another friends house. I then got to spend the weekend catching up with her, her family and this little girl.

Eating eggs

I left a little earlier then I expected to since my DH was traveling to Houston on Sunday and I wanted to see him for a bit. I stopped on the way back at IKEA for my sister.

 IKEA on a Saturday night is a bad idea.
can we say long line?
The drive back was uneventful and filled with me being engrossed in the audiobook. I got home very late on Saturday night but safely.

I look forward to my next trip to Houston to visit.
