Five minutes in Day to Day

Almost end of lunch, just a few minutes left to kill. All is going smoothly on the home front. Now we’re just waiting on the appraisal, that’s the next big hurdle (and hopefully the last.) Today...

For real. in Day to Day

Ugh. The other driver found some imaginary damage to some plastic on her car and filed a claim. UGH. I repeat. UGH. Ten years without a damn accident. Rawr… Finally found my W2, so there’s that. ...


You know the scene in hunger games with the girl in a tree costume stripping and Jennifer Lawrence really shines through? Yup. That’s my face, jaw kitted to the side and all. We need one of my w2...

Relaxing in Day to Day

I’ve had a good day. Nathan woke up at 630, so we hung out (meaning I dozed lightly on the couch while he played in the living room and watched powerpuff girls) until 9, when I woke up to him cur...

Recovery in Day to Day

I woke up exhausted. Yesterday was just a long damn day, all around. I got up, got my gym clothes on, got Nathan to the sitter… And realized how much I didn’t want to go to the gym. I’m tired and...

Mom of the year in Day to Day

Spent mother’s day with my MIL and my munchkin. We went to a pet expo and saw puppies galore (plus some kitties, reptiles, a miniature horse, a ring-tailed lemur, and a pair of kangaroo joeys.) W...

Struck down in Day to Day

I think I’ve contracted dysentery. I’m being struck down in the prime of my life, before I get to use anything off my “new house” Pinterest board. Life is cruel. Remember me fondly, friends. deat...


So I’m sitting here on a Friday morning, playing silly games on my phone, defining the meaning of life. This is why I need caffeine.. it makes my mind stretchy and limber and happy. This episode ...

Lumber anxiety in Day to Day

Thank you guys for your support. <3 It helps, really. That said, I feel like I’m a thin candy shell of calm over a solid lump of chocolate anxiety. I’m an anxiety M&M. A truck loaded with ...


I went home early from work yesterday because I wasn’t feeling well. Good call.. Got home at 2, was throwing up by 330. Felt god-awful all evening and into the night. I’m feeling a little better ...


We’re continuing the paperwork with the house. Tomorrow is delivery of checks (earnest money, etc) and scheduling the inspection, which I think will be Wednesday. We’re currently reviewing the HO...

My love ❤ in Day to Day

I miss my guys. We talked on and off for a few hours last night. He’s such a good guy. He settled me down about the house, and I’m feeling better about all of it. Reviewing the pictures and all t...


We offered $175k on a house listed at $190k, and they countered with $185k. I’m skeptical that the VA appraisal will be that high, but we can deal with that when we get there. VA loans have a req...

Oh snap. in Day to Day

What the Monday.. in Day to Day

Today has been ridiculous. Started out alright.. got the kid to the sitter on time, went to the gym, made myself hate all things movement related, got to work.. Didn’t see a single patient for tw...

Bye blue in Day to Day

Big blue barn was very cool, but that spiral staircase was killer and the rooms were pretty small, plus the creek sometimes floods.. All lead me to a ‘no’ on the big blue barn. I may build myself...

Big blue house in Day to Day

There’s this house I’m in love with. It’s big and blue and shaped like a barn. It’s on almost 2 acres and has a matching shed. It’s such a beautiful property. I’m hopefully going tomorrow to see ...

Silly events in Day to Day

1- I finally met my sister-in-law! In the 8 years I’ve been with my hubs, I’d never even talked online to her, so when I called Thomas last week after work and he said he was heading to the airpo...

Easter etc in Day to Day

Easter was fun. We spent most of the weekend at the in-laws, Saturday for prep and Sunday for family time. There were a TON of eggs for the kids, so everyone had fun. Nathan collected them until ...

Lessons learned in Day to Day

Ugh. I don’t feel great today. It’s my own fault.. I had bad-for-me food basically all day yesterday, and now I’m suffering the junk food hangover. It sucks getting old. Ah well. It’s good to enf...

Cookiepaws in Day to Day

My kid was running around with a fistful of mini oreos and put cookie smudges on our tv, and his new nickname is Cookiepaws. Kids. Yesterday wasn’t bad. My counterpart left early at my suggestion...

My herpes and me! in Day to Day

It’s a throwback to a Mad TV episode that started with “my tapeworm and me.” Seriously, though.. Did I tell you guys about the super herpified patient the doctor made me do perio probing on? The ...

Exhausted in Day to Day

I don’t know what it was about the last two days, but I’m freaking exhausted. Like dead on my feet. I think the lack of delicious, delicious animal protein is doing it. The last two days have be...


I feel awful. It’s a mix of physical and emotional. My whole abdomen feels sore and bloated, and I’m just feeling miserable and sad. I’m tired, and I’m just ready to cry. It’s not hormones. I th...
