Loose ends in Day to Day

I’m trying to focus this year on cleaning up projects and things that haven’t been finished and have just been waiting. I cleaned out a bunch of shit from my craft room and trashed/donated it. Go...

Family disease in Day to Day

My mom sent me pictures of my brother when he was younger, laughing about family resemblance between him and Nathan. He was probably early teens. What struck me is how healthy he looked. He’s bee...

Witcher in Day to Day

So I don’t get celebrity crushes. I can comment on whether or not I think a person is attractive, but there isn’t much actual interest in a person I don’t know in the slightest. Occasionally, tho...

Wrap in Day to Day

Weekend goings-on in Day to Day

I took a CPR class this morning to re-up my CPR card. There were literally two of us, so we got out an hour and a half earlier than scheduled. It’s done, see ya in 2 years. Made myself pecan flou...

Quiet in Day to Day

The TV has not been turned on today. I hope this becomes a more consistent state of affairs. Nathan has asked half a dozen times to turn it on, and I’m over it. He was an a-hole at daycare yester...

My damn child. in Day to Day

He has been such a pain in the ass today. I’m ready to beat him soundly. He was a total asshole this morning and is being an asshole again. I’m fucking over it. I don’t know what his deal is, but...

Thus ends a decade in Day to Day

2019… Hmm. It was a doozie. Work was rough through the first half, but got better. Good changes are coming. There’s the 20lbs I lost this year, may they stay gone, and hopefully another 20 lost t...

Upcoming changes in Day to Day

I should be more excited… My schedule is cutting back a full day, putting me at 4 days a week instead of 5. It’s something I’ve wanted and asked for, but for some reason I just can’t get excited ...

New Year Reset in Day to Day

Part 1: Nathan’s room. I spent this morning weeding out multiple sets of toys to send on to J or a co-worker, and managed to clean out and move a large toy box from the living room to the back po...

Safe in Day to Day

I made it through Christmas week 2019! I’m exhausted, but I didn’t have to post bail, so there’s that. We had our office Christmas party at a painting place, which I loved. I made a stained and p...

It's official in Day to Day

I’m a fucking grinch. I’m over the holidays by about 110%. My kid is currently having a goddamn meltdown in his room after getting into it with Thomas over getting his teeth brushed. My house loo...

Weird parenting conundrum in Day to Day

So I’m not Christian. Just not. I don’t buy into the mythos. I’m more of a pagan-leaning humanist, maybe? But anyway. I’m not really a fan of or comfortable with Christianity because it is used w...

Angry in Day to Day

The uterus is angry. Period has arrived, which begs the question, what has been up with my stomach? I’m literally queasy as I write this. Must be my acid getting out of whack.. It does that every...

Dudes.. I forgot what a crazy person TTC makes me. Another negative test this morning. Also nauseous and my boobs hurt. Period is due Monday. Feeling like I’m totally nuts. TFG for planned distra...

Took a test, got a negative, but it was about 5 days early, so… Still getting some random symptoms, still think I’m pregnant but also wonder if I’m crazy. Hooooray! I survived the week, TFG. It ...

Nathan's 4th bday party in Day to Day

So the party went fairly smoothly, once we got there. We had it at an indoor playground and everyone came and was mostly on time. Nathan had a great time playing and was inundated with presents. ...

I'm calling it in Day to Day

I’d bet good money that I’m pregnant. Nausea, heartburn, constantly peeing… This is exactly what I went through last month. My bet is in. Y’all can laugh later if I’m being paranoid or overly opt...

4 years old in Day to Day

My baby boy turned 4 on the first! He’s gotten so big… I can’t figure out how it’s happened so fast! He’s so smart and funny and stubborn. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Thanksgiving: made a to...

GD Creepers.. in Day to Day

I posted a question to my neighborhood page about the deed restrictions and a neighbor messaged me. I okayed it, figuring he had relevant input. Nope. He asked if I was dressed as cat woman in m...
