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 ...


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...

Back to earth in Day to Day

$1600 later, my car has returned home this evening. I hugged her and told her I missed her. No, I’m not joking or exaggerating. Still need to find someone to replace the catalytic converters and ...

Grace in Day to Day

So today was stressful. Forgive any typos, I’ve had a large margarita and have a lowered alcohol tolerance (thank you, wellbutrin!) (You can skim the car paragraph, it’s not super important. TL;D...

Ugh, f*ck you Monday in Day to Day

Found the two pounds I lost. Check engine lights came on in my car.. Like, all of them. Car is still in the shop. Won’t even have a quote until tomorrow. Self-medicated my stress with cake (thoug...

High five! in Day to Day

It occurs to me, though my weight loss stalled and shimmied for a while, I’m still almost 30 lbs down from January 2017, and I’m 15lbs down from the beginning of this year. I’m on a definite down...

Day 1 in Day to Day

On Friday, I went to San Antonio and had a bestie day with B at Fiesta Texas. I rode coaster after coaster, and it was fantastic. I felt so awesome afterwards, just like a deep, amazing mellow. A...

Proud new owner in Day to Day

…of a very expensive embroidery/sewing machine. Cuz I’m a sucker. Don’t judge me. Meanwhile, back on the ranch… My damn Silhouette Portrait is acting up, and after sending an email to customer su...


We went to Joann Fabrics this morning after breakfast, and my hubs found the Husqvarna sewing machine area (actually kind of a store within a store.) They’re ridiculously expensive, but can do so...


I’m feeling better, much less stabby. The day didn’t start that way, but work was good, if not great production-wise. My teeth are aching from my adjustment yesterday.. They took out the springs...


Met with my case worker today. House was clean, paperwork was posted, she seemed satisfied with everything, we talked a bit and she left. Later, she emails me saying the litterboxes smelled “very...
