Girl goes to hygiene school. Girl succeeds and graduates. Girl becomes hygienist. Girl is told by doctors that she could totally make it through dental school. Insanity ensues. The more I think a...

Heavy in Day to Day

1- my doctors are encouraging me to go to dental school. The doctors want me to be a doctor. That’s quite a recommendation. I fully believe I could do it… I’m weighing the urge vs the cost vs the...

Weekend Wrapup in Day to Day

I’m freezing. I blame the poorly-situated vent that blows air at the window in my living room. So tired of this apartment.. So I took the baby to the house. He ran amok, I sorted things and made ...

Dead on my feet in Day to Day

All three of us are ending this weekend exhausted. Even Taco is dozing on the bed beside me. We managed two full loads on the trailer, one per day, which got a lot of our bigger stuff that we ca...

Wave 1 in Day to Day

Tomorrow begins the first wave of moving from the apartment to the house. We’re basically going to pack up as much as we can live without and get it moved, sorted, and rehomed in the new house. W...


If you didn’t know, I’m a pretty big Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac fan. Love love love. I’m taking a caffeine break. I had a mental crash and kicked the boys (nicely) out of the house so I could cle...


But I’m not. I’m a bit ramped up, anxiety style, so I’m trying to get myself to chill. Today started with work, but I ditched when I realized there were only 6 people on the schedule for the afte...

Screaming it out in Day to Day

Omg. My kid is driving me crazy today. I love him so much, but omg. Oh yay, I think that’s my wine-delivering awesomeness of a husband..... Either that or a rogue rhino on the stairs… Yup, it’s t...


Well, for Friday, anyway. I work Saturday, but it’ll be an easy day. Friday will be a trip to the beach, Nathan’s first! I’m so excited! He’s a water baby. I think he’s going to love it. I finish...

By teeth and nails in Day to Day

It feels like a lot of people are just trying to survive the summer, lately. Hanging on by our teeth.. 1- I’m not pregnant, or if I was I’m not now. I’m not upset (pretty relieved, really) and in...


Yeah, still nothing. Tested Friday, negative. Gonna test again tomorrow. If I am pregnant, we can blame Durex products. If I’m not, I’m very concerned about what’s going on with my reproductive o...


I’m stressed. So very stressed. My body is not acting right. I’m worried something is up. But I don’t know what’s going on with it. Awesome, right? So I’m stress cleaning. I’m vigorously stress c...

Pretty blue houses in Day to Day

We’ve basically finished painting the kitchen and have nearly finished the living room. Just a wall and touchups left, then one bedroom plus one wall in the other bedroom. We started with a very ...


Very preggers kitty had her kittens without issue, four pretty bebes. Three calicos and one either tuxie or tabby, hard to tell at 2 days old. I regret that mommy didn’t get spayed before it happ...

Go the f*ck to sleep in Day to Day

My child is wide awake. Damn it. We got home about 20 minutes ago, right at his bedtime. He’s had a very busy day running and playing, but apparently his nap on the way home recharged his batteri...

GD electric co. in Day to Day

Goddamn electric company, the only one that services our new house, doesn’t answer their phones on the weekend, and the seller had the power shut off before we could get it put into our name. $*&...


It is pouring outside. I love it! But it’s apparently going to continue through the weekend, so the naked house party is likely to be a mostly-indoor affair. But since we bought a propane grill, ...

Dudes. in Day to Day

We bought a house. \m/ TxT


We’re waiting outside the title company to sign all the closing paperwork. Zomg. We did the final walkthrough last night. I’m so excited! I love the place so much. But omg.. Everything needs to b...

Surrounded in Day to Day

I’m surrounded by idiots. I swear to god. I’ve ranted at several people about this already, and it still pisses me off. Usually a good rant will calm me down, and it helped a little, just knowing...

In closing in Day to Day

Got the final tally for closing costs: $624. SO MUCH BETTER than the initial $3k we were quoted. That helps A LOT with making sure we have rent covered for the apartment when we get doubled up wi...

Damn technology.. in Day to Day

I just want Hulu to stop freezing every 30 seconds so I can keep watching Elementary. Is that so much?? Bug and I went to the downtown Aquarium on Friday, and we had such a great time! We petted ...

Terrorized in Day to Day

My child is on a tear this morning. He’s climbing everything, getting into everything, and making me read Paw Patrol books one after another. x_x Thank god. He’s asleep now. Little monster is tee...

Beautiful things in Day to Day

Jimmy Buffet The concert was amazing! We had so much fun lounging and relaxing in our lawn chairs. We got a decent spot on the side where everyone was mostly seated, so we had a lot of fun. It wa...

Bday present madness in Day to Day

I finished my friend’s bday present, a painting of Eeyore that says “it never hurts to keep looking for sunshine.” Zomg, I’m so happy with how it turned out!! I can’t wait to give it to her. And ...
