Ain't talkin' in Day to Day

So I’m basically not talking to anyone at work. My patients get my usual chirpiness, but apparently my co-workers think I’m psycho and “don’t know what” I’ll do next (spoiler alert: I was sick, I...

Sally forth in Day to Day

Today sucked and was stupid and I cried driving home, and some days work is ridiculous, and basically all the days I wish I was a rich hermit living in the middle of nowhere, but I have a select ...

I’m in a mood. I went to work yesterday and definitely shouldn’t have, and they didn’t send me home when they definitely should have, and in fact tried to have me stay late (no, motherfuckers!!) ...

Ja. That’s how my week is going. I psyched myself into illness. Tonsils are enormous, swallowing is torturous, headache, body aches, fatigue.. The whole shebang. Thank jeebus for teladoc services...

Aches and pains in Day to Day

My teeth are killing me. I broke a $600 cavitron at work. I’m anxious and unsure and afraid of making a bad choice. In short.. I’m a hot mess. TxT

1200 pages in Day to Day

Literally 1200 pages of documentation of A’s history. It was very confusing. She was taken into care at 5 days old and placed into foster with two people who would eventually adopt her at age 2. ...

Sweet boy in Day to Day

My baby got to see both sets of grandparents in the last two days. Friday night he spent with Thomas’ parents so we could go to dinner (Brazilian steak house, omfg, utter bliss.. and no, not Fogo...

So the next step is signing paperwork, then we’ll begin with visits and communication. The plan from there is for her to stay with us over spring break, and if that goes well, that may become per...

Good changes in Day to Day

So as I mentioned before, I have a wedding dress to shop for in about 6 months, and Thomas wants to fit into a suit nicely, so we’ve actually been really kicking things up to enact some changes t...

People suck. in Day to Day

While on my way home last night I was talking to Thomas and he got another call. 5 minutes or so later, he came back. It was our case worker. Some shitty kids had been bullying A because she’s in...

Sorry mutts.. I’m not going on a walk in 33° weather. Honestly, they probably wouldn’t appreciate it too much either. It’s Friday, but because I’ve put in between 2 and 3 hours of overtime, I’m ...

Intro to A in Day to Day

So I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned this, but we’re currently applying for a 13 year old girl whom we’ll call A. She’s super sweet and has had a rough couple years (more on that at a later date...

New year, new ink in Day to Day

So after an 8+ year hiatus, I finally got a new tattoo. This is #4, and I love how it came out. It’s kind of a soft, watercolor-style prickly pear cactus with peach blossoms. There’s a lot of sym...

2018 was a very busy year. We started it with classes for our foster/adoption certification. I also tried to improve my work situation and was told to work harder, which prompted me to apply, int...

My kid’s 3rd year is not looking promising. He’s making me just a tad crazy. But we’ve all also been home for four days and are just about sick of each other. Yay for a couple days of work this w...

Beautiful day in Day to Day

Christmas was wonderful, but first some catch-up: -my mom and I did a painting class together, and it was so much fun! It was the red vintage Christmas truck, but she painted hers blue to be Litt...

Little Violet Beauregard in Day to Day

Ugh… I feel super bloated after dinner, and I barely ate half my meal. I’ve been a digestive wreck all day. Bleh! I more or less finished my fan blades today! Yay! They are super cute. The bows a...

Bounce in Day to Day

So I hit my goal weight, but I bounced back to my current status quo, so hopefully it’ll happen again?! I’m pretty happy to have seen it, though. It’ll be my 30lb mark, almost halfway to my goal...

Ridiculous week in Day to Day

The cats ruined the Christmas tree in under two days. Literally bent the limbs from climbing it. Penny (my lab mix) developed a huge puffy ear Tuesday from shaking her head. She has a hematoma an...

Weekly update in Day to Day

I’ve gotten lazy about updating. Lots to say! Monday- called in, so I was here for our case worker’s visit. No news from the kids we looked into at the adoption event. She brought us a bunch of p...
