Falling Apart

Oh, my god, you guys. My body is in so much pain! All from doing next to nothing. The other day I was loading the dishwasher, and by the time I was halfway done loading the bottom rack I felt l...


Does anybody else make it a habit to look around their house and imagine the way it’s supposed to look to remind themselves about all of the beautiful potential that’s there? No? Just me? Okay co...


Ooph. So far, everything about this pregnancy seems to be more difficult than the last. In my first trimester, I was much more nauseous and moody than I remember being the first time I got pregn...


Guys, I love her, but my kid is driving me totally insane. This morning she didn’t want to let me do anything. While I’m trying to brush my teeth? She’s crying. There’s nothing I can do that wil...


I really feel like, over the past year, I’ve turned my dining room table into a very nice work space, haha. All it took was a laptop stand, a binder organizer, a small house plant, and a candle. ...

Masks

All right! Well, I must say, today is off to a pretty good start. This morning I had a doctor’s appointment. They just had me pee in a cup, took my weight and blood pressure, and then listened t...

My Special Skill

Unlike my calendars for January and February, my calendar for March is fully booked. I feel ready for it. I’m finally going to deep clean my house again for the first time since before I got pre...

Crunching Numbers

This morning my husband was asking about what would happen if he went and spoke to a realtor. He asked, “if they had houses to show us, what would you want to do?” I was like, “First, I would wa...

Parenting

I am generally happy with the way my husband and I have divided up parenting duties, but there is also, of course, the variable of our daughter and her opinion. As she gets older, she’s definitel...

Mom and Dad

Well, my husband’s birthday seemed to go pretty well! He was a happy man. I let him sleep-in on my sleep-in day (granted, he let me sleep-in on his day the day before). After he woke up, he went ...

Bedtime Ramblings

Duuude, today was an emotional roller coaster. Thank you, pregnancy! Things started out great. It was supposed to be my husband’s sleep-in day, but my daughter woke up five times last night, all...

Good Spirits

Life is so good! This morning I got to sleep in until nearly 9am. The there were only two things on the calendar: grocery shop (like we do every Sunday morning) and assemble the crib! The grocer...

Crazy Shit

Yesterday, I scheduled my licensing exam. Holy shit, it’s one of many things that I am in disbelief about. So much hard work, and, now, finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I had a ...

Yin and Yang

It’s a busy day on Prosebox! I feel like I sometimes go days without any new bookmarks, and this morning I read two bookmarks and then, after finishing the second one, two more bookmarks showed u...

Hours Approved

I JUST RECIEVED AN EMAIL NOTIFYING ME THAT THE 3,000 HOURS I’VE BEEN WORKING ON FOR THE PAST FOUR YEARS HAVE BEEN APPROVED! Now all I have to do is pass this licensing exam and I’ll finally be L...


Right now the only thing that is missing from my life is alcohol. God, what I would do for a glass of wine. Or a margarita. Other than that, though, things are running pretty smoothly around here...

Date Night and Sprinkle

I’m currently at the tail end of my usual three-day weekend and I must say I’m feeling much better. My daughter and I went over to see Terra, her son, and her new baby and it was just what I need...

Same Four Walls

I’ve been growing increasingly anxious over the past few days, and I’m not totally sure what to attribute it to. I believe it’s largely connected to the lack of diversity in my routine. As I ment...

Responsibility and Relaxation

My family is going through a “calm” period right now, which is pleasant. My husband and I have both been joking and laughing more, and telling each other we love one another. We’ve even been snu...

Anticipation

Well, knowing I had the condo to myself yesterday turned out to be pretty anti-climatic. It was extremely difficult for me to focus on studying, so I only got about halfway to my goal and I spent...

Off To a Nice Start

Well, it’s only 9:45am, but so far today is turning out to be a pretty damn good day. It was my husband’s “sleep in day,” so I woke up with my daughter at 6am—something I don’t think I’ll ever g...

Irritated By Others

Things with my husband are about 3,000% better. Like I mentioned in a previous entry, I think the downward spiral was the result of my husband not getting enough sleep. He classifies it as “falli...

Midnight Freak Out

As its getting near the time I expect (hope!) my hours will get approved, I recalled one of the things I’d seen other therapists mention as an indicator that things are progressing. When I maile...

Endless Preparations

Mission Prepare Condo For Baby Morgan is now in full swing. Yesterday we rearranged all the furniture in our bedroom to make space for a crib. First we pulled out a black foot bench, dresser, IKE...

Someday

EDIT: The Board of Behavioral Services is currently reviewing applications turned in during the week my application was received, which means sometime in the next week I should know if my hours w...
