Hey DFW friends in Day to Day

You know who you are, let me know you weren’t involved in that clusterfuck on I35. I just saw a video of some of it happening in progress and it’s a nightmare. Sound off, amigas. TxT

Tanked in Day to Day

One of my stupid-ass cats jumped from a high shelf onto the fish tank, and this time the fish tank lid wasn’t having it. Thus did a cat take an impromptu bath, splashing aquarium water across my ...

Wicked Game in Day to Day

The cover of Wicked Game by Theory of a Deadman grabs my heart and squeezes it. I freakin’ love it. Add on that it came on right after Brent Smith serenading me with Shinedown and Apocalyptica an...

Fuzzy in Day to Day

I’m feeling pretty slow today, just dragging ass. I didn’t get much done around the house. I got some masks sewn up this morning, then parked myself in my room while Nathan napped. I did work on ...

Pounding it in Day to Day

I’ve been slamming caffeine this morning, and in an hour and a half I’ve cleaned all the litterboxes, taken out the trash, cleaned the kittens’ room and spent time with them, refilled all the bir...

Mattress Mack is a Houston bigshot who is actually a pretty decent human being. He picks a team for the SB (and maybe the world series?) and if you spend a certain amount before the game and his ...

'Took care of it' in Day to Day

Successfully got rid of the bed frame! Yes! Also picked up a large dog crate for free from a neighbor, woo! Those stupid things are expensive. We started the day at Cavenders finding some boots ...

Tear it up in Day to Day

Cranked out my English essay while Nathan napped this afternoon. It was maybe a little heavy on the ‘politicians are shit’ aspect, but whatever. I’m alright with it. Random thing I managed to do ...

OMG DEAD in Day to Day

Started this last night… Watching The Boys, and The Deep is tripping on shrooms and having a conversation with his gills, voiced (I’m pretty sure) by Patton Oswalt, and I’m losing my shit. Omg. I...

Ugh.. in Day to Day

Remind me to stop reading news articles. They’re depressing as hell. On that note, I’ve never been more interested in looking into going vegetarian. Not specifically for the animals, but for the ...

Is this even English?! in Day to Day

Trying to write an essay, and just trying to get through my intro has me thinking, ‘Am I even speaking English?! WHAT DOES THIS SAY?!?’ I’m forgetting how to word here. I has the dumb. For being...

Every once in a while... in Day to Day

Shit goes right. Yasss. Heard back from my VA liaison about my benefits, and he said they can be certified as a ‘rounding out’ semester and that they would contact my certifier. Talked to someon...

Advising in Day to Day

Approaching the 20-minute mark for being on hold with advising. WHY CAN’T THIS BE A CHAT? Why must I actually speak to someone? I hate people, and I hate being on the phone. I was fine today… un...

Oh, for f*cks sake.. in Day to Day

Heard back from the VA office about my education benefits, and they don’t want to certify them because only one of the classes I’m taking is on my degree plan.... apparently it doesn’t matter tha...

35 days later in Day to Day

That bitch showed up with a vengeance. (PS- I cannot spell vengeance, apparently… yay for autocorrect..) That gives me the next two days to consider how much I want to try this again or just stop...

Mystery solved in Day to Day

It’s almost 2am, I have a headache, and sleep eludes me. So why not solve a mystery? We have motion-sensor activated lights in the backyard, and they’ll periodically light up in the middle of the...

Standoff in Day to Day

The standoff with my body continues… It’s day 34. Guess I’ll test again soon? Ugggh. Thomas’s bday present has made it to the states from Ukraine! (I always want to say the Ukraine, is that weir...

Off-kilter in Day to Day

I’m having a weird morning. I’m sitting in my car in the kroger parking lot with a skinny latte feeling weird about life. I’m on day 33 of waiting for my period to show up. Test was negative yest...

Baby steps in Day to Day

I am 6lbs down since really starting to improve my eating last week, yay! I’m doing IF, eating between 12-8 most days, trying to eating a lot of veggies and much less carbs. I’m not great about d...

So I have been wanting to set up a garden. NBD, right? WRONG. I have moles and a dog that digs and squirrels, etc, so I wanted to build a raised bed. NBD, right? WRONG. They are stupid expensive...

A wedding in Day to Day

If you count us, my two coworkers, and one spouse… There were all of 5 masks worn at the wedding. Fucking backwoods Texas bumpkins. We stayed masked and separated and away from people as much as...

Part 2 in Day to Day

I’m making myself sit down for a few. I’ve been running pretty hard. Cleaned my bathroom, kid’s bathroom, my bedroom, changed our bedding, washed all of my pillows (we have 6 on our bed, and we u...

Coffee... in Day to Day

Nature’s roto-rooter. I’m stuck in the bathroom working through what seems to be a full-system purge from a triple-shot latte. I guess it’ll be nice to drop some weight before the wedding? #thank...

TDL a mile long in Day to Day

UGGGGH I have a huge list of stuff to do and I don’t want to do ANY of it. None. Boo. Waiting for Nathan to finish a container of yogurt.. I might die before he’s done. 💀 But he begged for Starbu...

And can I get some more?? Like, on demand?? After dropping off Nathan, I came home and marveled at the weather (it was 60ish and overcast, but still nice) so I took the opportunity and swept/rake...
