Proud new owner in Day to Day

…of a very expensive embroidery/sewing machine. Cuz I’m a sucker. Don’t judge me. Meanwhile, back on the ranch… My damn Silhouette Portrait is acting up, and after sending an email to customer su...


We went to Joann Fabrics this morning after breakfast, and my hubs found the Husqvarna sewing machine area (actually kind of a store within a store.) They’re ridiculously expensive, but can do so...


I’m feeling better, much less stabby. The day didn’t start that way, but work was good, if not great production-wise. My teeth are aching from my adjustment yesterday.. They took out the springs...


Met with my case worker today. House was clean, paperwork was posted, she seemed satisfied with everything, we talked a bit and she left. Later, she emails me saying the litterboxes smelled “very...

Renewed in Day to Day

I’m starting to feel more like myself again. I don’t know if it’s the vitamin D, iron, or increased Wellbutrin, or some combination thereof, but I’m feeling better, for sure. We took Nathan to a ...

Carrying on in Day to Day

I’ve had a few really low-energy days, or maybe weeks, lately. I barely had the energy to get off the couch this weekend, and my house suffered for it. I went out with a friend and grabbed a coff...

Bye, Geoffrey.. in Day to Day

I know I’m a few days late, but damn.. Toys R Us is no more. I always loved going in, with the huge, crazy selection of toys, a store just for kids. Even as an adult, Toys R Us and Babies R Us wa...

Omg, this woman.. in Day to Day

I’m going to lose my shit with my caseworker. I redid my document (one, ONE, freaking picture was making up a shit-ton of MB) and she says, ‘it’s still cutting off words.’ Have you tried opening ...

The end is here.. in Day to Day

Thus ends my vacation. Boooo. But I enjoyed my time off, setbacks aside. We spent the day yesterday together as a family, which was awesome. We went to breakfast, then downtown to the museum (in ...


It’s a little past 330, and since dropping Nathan off 7 hours ago, I have done laundry, watered my yard, completely weeded (it was a jungle…) and remulched my front garden, and installed a super ...


One of my docs is on vacation, so I took two days off (plus the 4th) for a 5-day weekend. Saturday was fun.. We went to the Rtic outlet and an outlet mall, got some fun stuff. Sunday we intended...

So shiny.. in Day to Day

We ordered new phones, because they were buy one get one free with T-mobile. So we now have two of the G7 ThinQ, and it’s soooo pretty. Long, lovely, bright screen, excellently responsive keyboar...

Ha! in Day to Day

I got my blanket project finished!! 3.5 years after starting it, yep. It’s a big beast, 7’x7’, and freakin’ heavy. Thomas loves it. It was made from his old tshirts. I beat my sewing machine into...


In a long process of hurry-up-and-wait, we are now officially certified and have no earthly idea how long it will be until we have a kid placed with us. That part was pretty vague. I guess it’s j...

...and dead in Day to Day

I’m so dead. My legs are achy and I’m ready to pass out, but my brain isn’t quite calmed enough. Usually dinking around on my phone for a few minutes does the trick, thus here I am. In the last t...

Tired in Day to Day

I wish my days off weren’t so exhausting. I spent the day at home, trying to get the house clean. I managed to get my closet cleaned, all of my laundry washed and folded and mostly put away (no s...

Third Eye(lid) in Day to Day

Two of my cats have their nictitating membranes (or third eyelids) showing. It just appeared this morning. It’s not generally a good sign, though they’re both eating and acting normally. We did j...

The weekly report in Day to Day

1- training It was ghastly boring, but I survived it. The other hygienists were lovely and we had a great time, especially after getting to the airport. 11 of us crammed into a DFW Pappadeauxs an...


I’m watching animal planet, thinking about life and wondering if there’s some place I’d rather be.. Not right this minute, just in general. Not like cutting ties and running off to the circus.. B...

Wtf, breakfast bar.. in Day to Day

I loved this hotel riiight up until breakfast.. Egg white omelets, turkey sausage, and a yogurt bar… For the love of god, will someone give me a waffle?!? Fruit loops were my savior. Even the co...

Made it to DFW in Day to Day

I have safely arrived, and since checking in have found a gas station and a brick oven pizzeria in walking distance. I have monsters for the next few days, my pizza is cooking, and chocolate for ...

Waiting for sleep in Day to Day

I’m tired and my legs and feet are achy, but I’m a little wound up from packing. Should have everything ready, though. I got two batches of marshmallows made, chocolate espresso and birthday cake...


It’s going to be a crazy week… Moxie is making herself at home, and I’m pretty sure she’s not going anywhere. Cuz I needed another cat, right? She’s still so tiny and feels frail.. I worry about ...

The worst superpower in Day to Day

I seriously have the shittiest superpower ever. I find lost, hungry, homeless animals. In this episode, a tiny kitten appeared out of nowhere in the starbucks parking lot, apparently summoned by ...

Omg it's happening. in Day to Day

Talked to my caseworker a few minutes ago, trying to sort out a discrepancy in our paperwork. We think we have it corrected, then she said, “We should have everything ready by Friday or Monday so...
