Old business in Day to Day

I’ve been working on old projects today. It’s one of my goals for this year to work my way through my stockpile of unfinished projects. Today, I finished stitching my raven piece and tea-staine...

Goodbye, Maribel in Day to Day

It’s been a busy day. I had today off. After taking booger to daycare, I trekked to Target and bought a dress that I think I could literally hike up a mountain in (it’s so insanely comfortable!!)...

Early to bed in Day to Day

It’s 9pm and I’m running on fumes. 830 rolled around and I realized I was exhausted. I was in bed early last night too. I dreamt that I was pregnant, but it was sometime else’s (like not mine, ra...

Brief interlude in Day to Day

Ugh. I worked yesterday. All goddamn day. I hate Saturdays. I hate even more that I made production. Most Saturdays will be garage, but I had to work my ass off. 🙄 I’m really not looking forward ...

In my whitest of white girl moments, I was sobbing in my car in a Starbucks parking lot over stupid shit. I’d like to blame the weather, and it’s not a total cop out… It’s been like Seattle here ...

F* this week in Day to Day

In another round of disappointment, we got the quote back on the bike. $2500 to restore it, not including $300 to clean out and line the tank, which is rusting. FML. TxT

Blue day in Day to Day

I’m in a funk. After the work news yesterday with the new hygienist quitting, I decided to perk up by flirting with Thomas all day while he was stuck at school/work. When he got home, after break...

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

The chickens came out super cute. They were modeled after Beyonce the Chicken (Jenny Lawson reference.) Love. I cleaned up a respectable amount of my craft room and disposed of a lot of junk, eit...

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...

Grinchy in Day to Day

I’m feeling decidedly grinchy today. Wrapping presents, watching Christmas movies, arguing with my child over religion.. 🤦 Love my kid, like his daycare, but he’s so damn stubborn when he gets an...

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...
