Crafty weekend in Day to Day

My weekend was long and crafty. I finished my holiday blocks, besides the final mod podge. It’s been too humid to hope they’ll dry with any speed. They’re labor-intensive, but omg I love them. I ...

Mixed bag in Day to Day

Well.. Cruz, that rat-faced motherfucker, is still in office, BARELY. We have him a solid run, though. Good for Beto! And Dems took the House, which is a win, probably a more important win than t...

Halloween hijinx in Day to Day

Tuesday was not as bad as expected, thankfully. Wednesday was Halloween, and I had the day off. Winner, winner! I started assembling my blanket ladders. I got two of them together nicely, but the...

Have you ever had a can of spray paint blow chunks of dusty paint onto a beautiful clean surface you were preparing for painting? If you haven’t, you are missing out! Ugh. I’m prepping fan blades...

My face hurts. in Day to Day

Ugh, freaking adjustments. My front teeth are killing me. I have a lateral that’s needing to be rotated and a gap closed, so it’s tied and power-chained to my centrals and omg it hurts. The weeke...

Cold snap in Day to Day

Faire in Day to Day

Long week, but not a terrible one. We made it to the weekend. We spent Saturday at Ren Fest with M and A, and had a fabulous time! I got all gussied up in makeup and long double fake lashes and ...

Political garbage in Day to Day

The current SCJ nominee drama is literally making me sick. The things I’m hearing from what would probably seem to be otherwise-normal people is just depressing. I just.. I can’t even. Today was...

Survived! in Day to Day

Made it through the week. Friday was crazy busy, but somehow a good day. Saturday was super rainy, so other than a few errands, we didn’t do much. Spent most of the weekend at home enjoying a lot...

Up and down in Day to Day

Good news- my neck feels better! Bad news- my boss reamed me out and I had a minor breakdown in her office. Yep, my day was awesome. Started with a slip up in routine, then I got to hear about ...

Tight-neck Tuesday in Day to Day

I have no idea what I did, but I’ve jacked up my neck somehow. I currently have a hot pad wrapped around it, and it seems to be helping. It was getting painful to even turn my head, which sucks f...

Hunger in Day to Day

I love that Florence and the Machine song. Her voice is amazing, and it resonated so much with me from my first time hearing it. So pretty. I’ve been having some difficulty getting breakfasts fig...

Sad, sad, sad in Day to Day

I left my Big Bitch behind today, and I’m heartbroken. I loved that damn car. We ended up $5k upside down, because fuck my life. I fought them on the interest rate.. Apparently interest rates are...

Car shopping in Day to Day

If there’s one thing I hate, it’s car shopping. But.. My car has lost my trust. I feel it hesitating on the freeway, and I’m pretty sure it’s because she’s misfiring. She needs a piston ring job,...

Bye, Goose. in Day to Day

One of our guppies got dropsy. I noticed it yesterday, and the poor guy was gone by this afternoon. The other guppy is fine, though, so that’s good. We’ve had them since last fall, so longer than...

Confirmed case of measles in Houston. The story is ridiculous, though not because of the kid.. It’s because of the nurse that posted about it online. https://abc13.com/health/houston-toddler-test...

The weekly wrap in Day to Day

I’ve been keeping up, just haven’t been saying much. All is fine here. The week passed mostly uneventfully. Nathan threw a screaming, raging tantrum at Chick-fil-a on Tuesday when I wouldn’t get ...

I was being a slacker all morning. I’ve been playing with the chainmail kit B loaned/gave to me. Made some cool stuff.. Cussed a lot. Nathan went down for a nap, then woke up less than an hour la...

Tough little cookie in Day to Day

Just a quick update. Little man is totally back to normal, staples and all. You wouldn’t know anything had happened. At least one teacher at the daycare actually didn’t know, she thought he was t...

F*cking August.. in Day to Day

My kid jumped out of shower onto tile, slipped, and hit his head on the shower doorframe, giving himself a inch-and-a-half long gash on the back of his head. I wasn’t home yet when it happened, t...

Hopped up in Day to Day

It’s definitely a sinus infection, probably viral, knowing my luck. I’m self-medicating with Sudafed until I can breathe (and taste colors.) Today was not terrible, though. I’m just as surprised ...

Made it through Monday in Day to Day

Definitely sick. Still sneezing/snotting/stuffy with a sore throat. I’ve had soup twice plus tea today, to no avail. I’ve officially busted out the Sudafed.. Time to take this sucker head-on. I d...

Ugh. August is sucking. I’m home with Nathan. He threw up in the car yesterday and spiked a 101° fever last night. Small favors.. He did give me a 5-second warning and there happened to be a buck...
