Tired... in Day to Day

I’m tired, crampy, and a bit snappy. I’m also a little weepy and starry-eyed while cuddling with my bug. ❤ He’s a sweet little monster. All he wants is to cuddle with me. He picked out a book to ...

Psycho dog in Day to Day

Penny, my 10-year-old lab mix, attacked Taco, my 5-year-old terrier mix. He’s less than half her size and sweet as can be. She, on the other hand, has a random trigger in her head that makes my n...

Muffin-top in Day to Day

My chonky boy Adonis (my youngest but somehow largest cat) has wiggled himself into a hammock on the cat tree that he just loves… He’s getting so big he’s muffin-topping over it. It’s hilarious. ...

Home again, home again in Day to Day

I got out of my afternoon presentation 45 minutes early today, thereby beating rush hour traffic. I made it to bug’s daycare in 55 minutes, a GD miracle. I think I only paid for one day of parkin...

Headache in Day to Day

My head is killing me. I haven’t taken anything yet… Sheer laziness. My jaws hurt.. I’m constantly clenching my jaws since I got my braces off. Ugh. I hate the idea of going back and asking about...

Hummingbird bread in Day to Day

My house smells amazeballs. Husband has a potluck with his new job on Friday, so I busted out the baking mojo and made mini hummingbird bread bundt cakes. They are gooood, and so cute! Can’t wait...

Tequila is the cure in Day to Day

Two margaritas and a good romp in the sheets and I’m feeling better than I have in days, though that might be the side effect rather than the cause. Work was good today. ❤ I really do like my job...

Exhausted productivity in Day to Day

I managed to plow through my listlessness yesterday and got a fair bit of cleaning and laundry done. Today was alright, though I’m still half-dead. I don’t know what this virus is that is taking ...

All the naps in Day to Day

It’s been a nap-fest. I’m still very low-energy, and my cough is becoming rather nagging, but I’m feeling less woozy. I’m going to try laying off the mucinex, trading it for a straight cough supp...

Shiver in Day to Day

Went to work. Was very compassionately sent home. Went straight to the doctor. Waiting on my provider. I’m huddled in a thick fleece jacket, because 73° felt cold. 😷 Literally had my seat heater ...

I look and sound like shit today. My doctor told me to take a long lunch and sleep in an empty operatory, which I totally did. I dozed for about an hour, cuddled up in a large fluffy blanket (we ...
