So the party went fairly smoothly, once we got there. We had it at an indoor playground and everyone came and was mostly on time. Nathan had a great time playing and was inundated with presents. ...

I'm calling it in Day to Day

I’d bet good money that I’m pregnant. Nausea, heartburn, constantly peeing… This is exactly what I went through last month. My bet is in. Y’all can laugh later if I’m being paranoid or overly opt...

4 years old in Day to Day

My baby boy turned 4 on the first! He’s gotten so big… I can’t figure out how it’s happened so fast! He’s so smart and funny and stubborn. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Thanksgiving: made a to...

GD Creepers.. in Day to Day

I posted a question to my neighborhood page about the deed restrictions and a neighbor messaged me. I okayed it, figuring he had relevant input. Nope. He asked if I was dressed as cat woman in m...

What the JFC in Day to Day

The proper owners association is trying to tell us our fence is not “as described” and they’re telling us we need to change it. Umm.. No. It was approved, and there is NOTHING in the deed restr...

Just a thought.. in Day to Day

WHO SHARES BIRTH VIDEOS ON FACEBOOK?! I don’t even care if it’s ‘friends only,’ Facebook loves to autoplay vids and I don’t want to see anyone giving birth!! Holy shit, keep that between you and ...

As promised. in Day to Day

I am ok. We are ok. I was fine at work the rest of the week, though apparently it took a toll… The minute I got home Friday, I fell apart. I went off about the quality of the fence that was just...

This bullshit.. in Day to Day

I tried to call in today. I don’t want to go to a doctor because I already know what’s happening, and I really just wanted to stay home to get over things. I didn’t feel like doing bloodwork or a...

Thanks, guys ❤ in Day to Day

Thank you, everyone. I’m doing ok. Yesterday wasn’t pretty, but I’m steadying out. It was a chemical pregnancy, so I’m disappointed but I’m going to be alright. And we did realize we are really e...

Breakdown in Day to Day

I started spotting this morning, which would have been normal enough, but it led to bleeding and I had to try to avoid a complete breakdown at work. Didn’t entirely work, and don’t plan to go in ...

Eventful in Day to Day

In short, this day has been VERY eventful. The highlights- 1- got my dental implant placed. My face is sore but I’m managing. 2- caught a shih tzu running in the middle of the road and, thanks to...

A light at the end of the tunnel: the part-time hygienist we hope to hire was shadowing us today! YAY! Dr may end up hiring her with or without the OM signing off on it. He was going on about nee...

Over it. in Day to Day

I’m so fucking over this week. Coworker and I are still on silent mode, and my doctor bitched me out over something stupid, and I’m pretty sure it was in earshot of my patient. She was demanding ...

A day in Day to Day

It was a long day. Wednesdays are late days, not my favorite. The other hygienist was a cow yesterday over stupid shit, so we’re not on speaking terms. The end of the day was overloaded because p...

Calmer tempers in Day to Day

I’m working very hard to have faith in my doctor and my operations manager to properly handle a new doctor coming onboard. Also… I’m planning on either cutting to part-time or leaving entirely wi...

F.M.L. in Day to Day

Just found out my practice signed on a third general dentist who will be working Saturdays and late shifts. I’m so fucking aggravated. I can’t work until 7pm multiple nights a week and I won’t wo...

Lazy daisy in Day to Day

I literally did not leave my house yesterday. It was great. I haven’t gone past my driveway today, but I’ve been somewhat productive. We cleaned a bunch of stuff out of our garage and put it out ...

Floods in Day to Day

To start, I’m fine and all my family are fine. We were all in the area hit by Imelda, though no one took any damage. I did get flooded into my neighborhood on Thursday, and took Tuesday off to ge...

Croupy in Day to Day

My little man is sick. It started with a fever Thursday night, which continued into Friday and Saturday, then evolved into congestion and has become what I’m nearly positive is croup. He’s wheezy...

On this day.. in Day to Day

I remember, and I am sad at how divided of a nation we are today. May we come together once again, as a nation of acceptance, safety, and love, without needing blood and death to do so. TxT

22 people left.. in Day to Day

I’ve been at DPS since 815 (it’s 940) and I still have 22 (now 20) people ahead of me. It was originally 70. I’m hungry and tired. I had to get up at 6 to drive my killer kitty (Adonis) to the ve...

Good day in Day to Day

I literally have not left my house today and it’a been awesome. I sorted all of my clean laundry and put all of my stuff away, sorted out Nathan’s too-small clothing, and with Thomas, cleaned bas...

Survived in Day to Day

I survived my birthday with the help of nsaids and muscle relaxants. Thomas didn’t really salvage the day, but the rest of the weekend wasn’t a total bust. I got my online shopping on and now hav...

Another basically lame birthday. 🙄 Married ten years and he can’t surprise me with anything. Apparently he can’t even come up with a gift idea that I didn’t tell him directly. He didn’t even have...
