D&D in Day to Day

Cheesecake tacos were a hit. Keto lava cake wasn’t bad, either! I finished a ton of sewing yesterday, which was great to get done. I can get a ton of sewing stuff out of my living room now. I hav...

Sawzall in Day to Day

My favorite tool is a reciprocating saw, hands down. It’s fun. I butchered 2 wood pallets and reassembled their carcasses into a really cool set of cemetery gates, some old-school wood signs, and...

I had caffeine and sugar and now it’s 1am and I’m AWAKE! I’d rather not be.. I have 2 pest control services coming out tomorrow to check out the creepy crawlies I found in my garden that I’m 99.9...

Rainy Days in Day to Day

I’m on the outer edge of TS Beta, just enough for rain and not much else. So I’ve been inside, spending most of the day working on my stack of sewing I’m trying to knock out so I can get it out o...

Things I’m fighting (or fighting for): Points on a test Not because I need them (I got a 92) but because it was a shitty question with no answers that matched the given notes and the answer was, ...

Test Results in Day to Day

I finally bit the bullet and did the first art test. I got a 92, though I’m sure I will argue it higher. At least one question didn’t have a correct answer. It was way overhyped.. I could have do...

Headache in Day to Day

Ugh, my head is killing me today. I did get my new glasses in, but the headache started before I swapped for a new pair. (PS- coastal.com, 2 pairs of glasses and rx sunglasses for $150 all in, yo...

Wiped out by 3pm in Day to Day

I’m so tired. I need to eat, my blood sugar is low, but I just want to lie down. It’s a conundrum. I walked the dogs and the kid this morning, then trimmed these ginormous whippy hedges that grow...

So. It’s been an unintentionally-productive day. This morning (pre-9am) I saw one of my neighbor’s hummingbirds do a fly-by on my porch and it made me fish out my feeders from where they were sta...

Someone remind me.... in Day to Day

Ugh. Remind me that school isn’t supposed to be easy and my Spanish class being a breeze will make up for the fact that my history class IS A BITCH. Omg. I spent HOURS watching documentaries and ...

Thursday Pt 2 & 3 in Day to Day

I was actually productive today! So proud of myself. I cleaned my kitchen and kept it that way. I even cleaned it up after dinner. All of my dishes are either clean and put away or in the dishwas...

I've got the vapors! in Day to Day

I think I need to cut back on caffeine, which is kind of funny considering I used to down energy drinks like it was nothing. I’ve been having random heart palpitations, usually in the evening, an...

Grr. in Day to Day

We got a new backdoor put in today, though the framing needs to be replaced, which would have been nice for him to mention before nailing it back in and letting us decide it looked shitty. Seriou...

Face the Music in Day to Day

Mermaid came over this evening and we watched the new Bill and Ted, which was fun. She brought sushi and sourdough to go with spinach dip and Thomas made creme brulee, though we learned a lesson ...

My bestie Mermaid gave me a gorgeous feather fountain pen for my birthday, because I’m a writer now. Dude, I almost cried at her. 😭😭😭 I love my friends. Seriously. The four of us went to Fogo de ...

Trapped in Day to Day

I’m trapped in a sweatbox, aka my house with no power. The 830 estimated restoration time has come and gone and I’m not expecting it to come back on anytime soon. So here we lay, in a gross, stuf...

Rolling Blackouts in Day to Day

The rolling blackouts (or brownouts? Nope, don’t like that..) have finally caught up with us. Thankfully we were not mid-dinner prep. I told him we would probably go out soon, likely right around...

Bypassed *edit* in Day to Day

The storm completely missed us. Not even a thunderstorm. Bah. I love storms, so (other than the damage) I love hurricanes. I’m a little bummed it missed us, but be sure, I feel for the people it ...

Ridonkulous... in Day to Day

I’m out again, getting last minute supplies before Laura hits. Managed to get my car’s safety inspection done, but of course not without hassle… My phone chose that moment to decide it wasn’t goi...

Today... in Day to Day

-My teeth are bothering me. A lot. Like I’m cracking into the Tylenol 3. Ibuprofen ain’t cutting it. -Many thanks to a hurricane in the gulf, the endodontist canceled their schedule on Thursday. ...

Peaceful Weekend in Day to Day

Thomas and I spent the weekend at a tiny BnB in a tiny town in east Texas. It was very peaceful and relaxing, and we really enjoyed reconnecting. My anxiety manifests all over the place and does ...

SAHMing is bullshit in Day to Day

Ugh. My kid, gods fucking help him. I just spent over an hour cleaning his room, and it’s not even finished, but I have a headache and he needed a nap. I’m having some issues with transitioning ...
