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, ...

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...

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 ...

Cocoa nuts in Day to Day

Blue diamond dark chocolate almonds, to be specific. They are fabulous and only 4g of sugar per serving. I’m killing the rest of lunch, just hanging in the break room. I painted yesterday, made ...

GDD in Day to Day

God damn dog. Penny attacked Taco this morning, completely unprovoked. He’s ok, but he does have several punctures, so she’s muzzled, again. I’m so tired of this crap. Ugh. I have nothing. I don’...

Ugh. Some little virus snuck onto my phone and started redirecting my websites at random. I think I’ve finally got it off my phone, thankfully. Day 6 of my 6 days off was fairly lazy. I took the ...

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 ...
