Goodbye, Vegas! in Day to Day

We’re about to take off from Las Vegas heading back home. Our vacation has been amazing and I’m so glad we did it!! I can’t wait to see my little dude and my fur-kids. Love you, Vegas! TxT

Went to my orthodontist (aka my old office) this morning. Had it out with my orthodontist over what has gone wrong (misplaced wire, broken turbos, only biting on my front teeth) and they did a bu...

Starting over in Day to Day

Jay is settled into his new placement well, from what we’ve heard. Things have settled here, much less chaotic. We’ve closed the house for fostering, not necessarily because of everything with Ja...

My crazy mother.. in Day to Day

So my mom stayed with Jay for the morning until his caseworker came to pick him up. She took him out, they went shopping, and she set up a new line on her cell plan for his phone. Wtf mother. Sh...

The end in Day to Day

We survived the day. Jay took everything much better than we did. I think he was a little relieved. The last couple months haven’t been easy on any of us, it seems. Thomas and I have both been cr...

Seriously. Never underappreciate your support network. When you’re drowning, they will drag your head back above water. They may not be able to dry up the sea, but they can help you navigate it. ...

Misery and Co in Day to Day

Thomas and I are miserable. We feel like scummy, terrible people. I keep thinking ‘have we tried everything? Have we done everything we can do? Should we just tough it out and hope it gets better...

The summer of suck in Day to Day

We (meaning me and Thomas, with our caseworkers input) decided to call it on the adoption. We are stressed out and unhappy. We don’t fit as a family and it isn’t likely to get better. It’s not th...

Nathan is sick. sigh The daycare texted to say he was feverish. I called Thomas. Then they texted he’d thrown up. 😒 Little vomit-comet hurled twice in the car, and just horked on me (though thank...

Busted in Day to Day

My kid is going to be up to his ears in shit when he gets home. He took his phone (which he’s not supposed to have) and his tablet (which he’s not supposed to take) to camp, and lied to Thomas’s ...

Getting there in Day to Day

I am.. doing better, I think? At the very least I survived my PMS without killing anyone, OR gaining any weight! I’m 21lbs away from a new motorcycle. (For those curious, I’m down 38lbs since May...

Followup.. in Day to Day

Ok, I’m a little better now. Had a meltdown at Thomas. He’s tougher than I am in these moments of overwhelming confusion, so he got me calmed down. He’s going to stay home tomorrow and he wants t...

Mental vomit in Day to Day

I have so much to say. This has been an emotionally exhausting week. I don’t even know how to start, or if I should say anything at all. It’s a crazy, touchy subject. It has to do with A. A is ok...

Two steps forward.. in Day to Day

We picked up A from camp on Friday, and she said she was kind of mad. Turns out, she and a group of other teenagers used her phone and made a ton of prank calls on her cell because they were bore...

Clearing skies in Day to Day

I’m sorry for being negative lately. It’s been a bitch of a week, but we’re getting through it. We went to A’s open house at the camp, and she was so excited! I think she’s going to really love i...

The end in Day to Day

I survived this long, awful, god-damn week. I have a migraine and I’m depressed, but I made it. I guess that’s something. Odin is still doing great. I’m still mad and hurt every damn day about Lo...

Wringer in Day to Day

This week.. Fucking hell. I’ve been through the emotional wringer. Have you ever tried to explain death to a 3-year-old? The follow-up questions are a gut-punch and go on for days. And my windsh...

Recovering in Day to Day

My little Odie had his surgery this morning. He’s home and recovering, sans eye and testicles. He’s in fact laying on a heating pad on my stomach, snoozing to his heart’s content, because he was ...
