Blah in Day to Day

Nathan’s fever is bouncing back after the tylenol wears off, so it’s not just a quick thing. Got him scheduled for an appointment tomorrow, so that’s something. Hopefully it’s not COVID… if it is...

Nathan is sick. Had to pick him up from school because he has a fever. They’ve decided to quarantine him unless we get a clean test on him. Awesome… They said it might be strep or the flu, both o...

Busy Weekend in Day to Day

Yesterday was quite busy. We were planning to take the boys to the museum, but I randomly checked online to see how much the extra exhibits cost and I’m glad I did. It’s an hour drive and they we...

Mermaid dropped off the adorable little dude, and once Nathan is home, it’s going to feel like I’m infested with adorable little monsters. It’s like their power multiplies exponentially as they g...

The guys are here working on the patio. I’m trying not to have a panic attack over it. My chest and back hurt… that’s my main cue that I’m not a happy camper. I have managed to get ALL of my dis...

Squirrely in Day to Day

Getting the backyard worked on has my anxiety ratched up so high it’s giving me back and chest pain. Ugh. They’re supposed to be here today to jack up the roof and trim the damage from the studs,...

Stump be GONE in Day to Day

In a stark contrast to my previous contractor experience, these guys are on it. They picked up the deposit check yesterday, and showed up today with a bobcat to get the yard levelled. They dug up...

Solar in Day to Day

It’s official. I’m solar-powered. It’s bright and sunny outside today, despite being a bit cold, and my mental state is greatly improved. I’m a solar-powered night owl who hates mornings and love...

losin' my shit in Day to Day

The weather is cold and wet and gross. My kid is manically energized. I am half-dead. Ugh. The new contractor sent a guy out to pry off some boards and get a better look at things on the patio. I...

That government test was fucking awful. That is all. TxT

Lightning strikes in Day to Day

I feel like crazy bad things are striking all around me, but none directly affect me. My friend J has fledgling chickens (not quite chicks, not quite chickens) and her 3-year-old ( I think?… pret...

Lizarding in Day to Day

It’s day 3 and I think I’m feeling something from my sunlamping. My skin is a little tingly from it, and I feel better at the end of the session than I did before. Is it the lamp? Is it cruising ...

Basking in Day to Day

I’m sunning myself, as shall be my morning ritual until I don’t feel like the turtle carrying the world. Of course coffee is involved, as well. I feel like I’m just twirling through reality late...

I just can't stay away... in Day to Day

You know the problem with PB? It always listens when there’s no one available for me to word-vomit at. I finally put on my big-girl panties and called the lawyer DM referred me to. Gent was suuu...

A Heckin' Chonker in Day to Day

Ugh. Not having a good body image day. On the cat chonk chart, I’m a heckin’ chonker and I’m over it. Gettin’ my shit together, like yesterday. And I really need to lay off the Monsters, but ugh....

Livid in Day to Day

I’m so fucking mad, y’all. The new contractor came out and checked things out to put together a quote. He pulled off some boards (with permission, of course) and showed me exactly what Contracto...

So yesterday was National Margarita Day, and y’all… I love margaritas. My favorite local Mexican restaurant has a menu of margarita specials for every day of the week. My favorites are the raspbe...

Well... in Day to Day

I actually did most of the things I needed to do! I’m so proud of myself! Got the kittens’ room clean, the litterboxes changed, picked up Nathan, picked up a library book, got more cat food (and ...

Sitting, playing on my phone when I have a literal to-do list right in front of me. 😅 But it’s not like I haven’t done anything yet. All of our plants have been uncovered and returned to their su...

And yet again... in Day to Day

Our power is out. Again. Omg. At least it’s an agreeable 65° out (yes, over 50° warmer than a few days ago…) Texas weather… TxT Followup: it only lasted three hours this time, yay! 🙈

Levelled in Day to Day

I’ve started the wheels in motion to get my back yard levelled and hopefully get my patio finished. One guy came out this morning and quoted $900 for levelling it, but didn’t include seed or sod....

Things seem to be back to normal? Neighbors got power yesterday and brought us tacos, charro beans, rice, and sausage, and they can cook. Those tacos were divine. Thomas is back at the office to...

Snowpocalypse 2021, day 3 in Day to Day

Here we are, still with power and water, hooray! I did dishes, then proceeded to bake a ton of cookies for our lovely neighbors who not only dropped off a bunch of assorted groceries, but also sh...

Snowpocalypse 2021, day 2 in Day to Day

Our power came back between 9 and 10 last night, so we slept well. No water, unsure if it’s frozen pipes or the water station being down, so we’ve literally boiled snow so we could flush a toilet...

It’s now 8:30pm and we haven’t had any power back, not even a blip, and I lost most of the data capability on my network around 2pm. This is the first time PB and FB would even load. It’s fuckin...
