Acceptable in Day to Day

So, Friday. Started my day with my ultrasound appointment, which was invasive but not as bad as it could have been, I guess? The tech was really nice, though she totally butchered my name. I’m go...

I’m going to throttle my child. He’s always a pain in the ass this time of year, between Halloween and Christmas. I don’t know if it’s too much going on or just being a pain in the ass around his...

Reinforcing bad habits in Day to Day

Finished my entire chapter of Spanish assignments and did my test AND passed with a 98. This is only reinforcing the bad habit of putting shit off because I know I can manage it later. Bad Tish. ...

Pheebs in Day to Day

Phoebe was pretty lethargic today and wheezing, so I ran her up to the shelter clinic as soon as they opened. My two gingers are doing fine, being active and whatnot, so I just took Pheebs. They ...

Kitties in Day to Day

The Odds in Day to Day

So. I’m still a nonsensical disaster unable to focus on ANYTHING for more than a minute at a time. But I’m doing a little better today? It’s been a weird week, kind of a ‘what are the odds…’ like...

Coming at you live! in Day to Day

Writing this from my ‘new’ (ie probably refurbished) replacement phone. But hey, everything seems operational! And it had the original screen wrap, so maybe it’s pretty close to being new? Assura...
