Not that bad in Day to Day

So today was really no big deal. Seriously.. I wouldn’t know I’d had extractions done if it weren’t for the empty holes at the back of my mouth. I’ve been faithfully rotating my Advil and Tylenol...


Two teeth gone, a mouth full of metal, and an interview done. Today was insane. I was literally at the dentist for seven hours today. It was roughly 3 for ortho (consult, pictures, impressions, a...


Just FYI, in case you didn’t know. I’m feeling quite a bit better today, though not quite 100%. But did I tell you guys? I got a call back to schedule an interview yesterday! I missed it, probab...


JFC. I’ve been up throwing up since 2am. I’ve vomited 4 times, 5 if you count my initial sick sesh at 11pm. Fucking kill me. TxT Nope, now it’s 6. Hello, 330.. Next day: made it to a grand total ...


My sprout count is probably above 150 by now. O_O How on earth have pomegranate trees not totally populated the earth? I finally set up pans and separated out my little sprouts, so they’ll quit t...


Omg. That was literally a snoozefest. Wtf. Friday the 13th was a better horror flick. With it being Friday the 13th, I felt compelled to indulge in a couple horror flicks. I had actually never s...

Biting bullets in Day to Day

I’ve been putting off getting dental stuff taken care of because I knew it would be expensive, and there may have been an anxiety component.. Yep, a hygienist with dental anxiety. But the late m...

Fucking CPA in Day to Day

CPA called in this morning. I was almost out the door when manager’s voicemail dinged through, then I got her text asking me to come in. UGHHHHHHHH. Every time I try to make a dentist appointmen...

CPA in Day to Day

My co-worker, the other hygienist, is actively working to piss off our manager. She exhibits a total lack of respect towards her. She literally put a post-it on her desk that “I need you to revie...

Nerves in Day to Day

I did it! I updated (jk, entirely remade) my resume and cover letter and sent them out! I feel queasy, but I did it! No idea why I’m so jittery about the idea of applying for a new job.. I spook...

Snips in Day to Day

-I’m going to send in my resume for a job opening at another office. I will. It’s gonna happen. -I’m trying my hand at amigurumi, aka crocheting 3d animals. I’m making a jelly fish after I saw on...


With spring comes change. It’s just how it goes. It’s natural, I suppose.. We often move in the spring, I got pregnant in spring, I started working in spring (and have started several jobs in spr...

Last class in Day to Day

Today was our last Pride class. From here, it’s wrapping up paperwork and prep, then the home study. It’s moving. Shit’s getting real. TxT


Fuck. I don’t know where I’ll go if this place dies. I’m not paying OD, not when some people paid “lifetime” subscription fees last time and it sank anyway. I like my little cluster of friends h...

Well shit. in Day to Day

False unproductivity in Day to Day

So I feel like I’ve been extremely unproductive today. But.. I really haven’t? I superficially cleaned my living areas, showered, cleaned out my fridge, went grocery shopping, took my kid to the ...

Where are my ladies?! in Day to Day

I miss the plethora of entries! Guess I shouldn’t be on here so often.. Sorry about the sadfest earlier.. I had just read a super depressing article about a friend and what she went through in a ...


No one except the shooter died. I can’t say it’s good no one else is dead. It shouldn’t have happened. No one should be afraid to go to school because they could die. I’m losing my grasp on why i...

Happy life in Day to Day

Puppers in Day to Day

Pretty pup was returned to her owner this afternoon. I’d go into details (where mom lived, if she was relieved, what pupper’s name was) but my husband returned her and he apparently doesn’t belie...

Could I just not..? in Day to Day

There’s an extra dog in my house. I’m a huge sucker and can’t let a sweet girl like her run loose in traffic and get hit, so yes. -_- could I just not be such a sucker? I’m exhausted. I walked he...

Over the hump in Day to Day

Today was class #6, putting us past the midpoint and on the downward slide towards the finish line. This weekend we ticked off a few tasks from our worker’s to-do list, finished our family i...


I care not what one study said, my kid reliably spikes a fever when he’s cutting a tooth hard. I was messaged Thursday afternoon that he had a 101° fever. The day had been suuuper slow so I was b...

So I was doing laundry and letting my thoughts wander, and I suddenly thought, what is the case worker going to think of my brother and Gabi and her husband all living together? (Cuz yeah, still ...

Clean up, aisle 3 in Day to Day
