Parenting in Staying Connected

I am generally happy with the way my husband and I have divided up parenting duties, but there is also, of course, the variable of our daughter and her opinion. As she gets older, she’s definitel...


Well, my husband’s birthday seemed to go pretty well! He was a happy man. I let him sleep-in on my sleep-in day (granted, he let me sleep-in on his day the day before). After he woke up, he went ...


Duuude, today was an emotional roller coaster. Thank you, pregnancy! Things started out great. It was supposed to be my husband’s sleep-in day, but my daughter woke up five times last night, all...


Life is so good! This morning I got to sleep in until nearly 9am. The there were only two things on the calendar: grocery shop (like we do every Sunday morning) and assemble the crib! The grocer...


Yesterday, I scheduled my licensing exam. Holy shit, it’s one of many things that I am in disbelief about. So much hard work, and, now, finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I had a ...

Yin and Yang in Staying Connected

It’s a busy day on Prosebox! I feel like I sometimes go days without any new bookmarks, and this morning I read two bookmarks and then, after finishing the second one, two more bookmarks showed u...

Hours Approved in Staying Connected

I JUST RECIEVED AN EMAIL NOTIFYING ME THAT THE 3,000 HOURS I’VE BEEN WORKING ON FOR THE PAST FOUR YEARS HAVE BEEN APPROVED! Now all I have to do is pass this licensing exam and I’ll finally be L...


Right now the only thing that is missing from my life is alcohol. God, what I would do for a glass of wine. Or a margarita. Other than that, though, things are running pretty smoothly around here...


I’m currently at the tail end of my usual three-day weekend and I must say I’m feeling much better. My daughter and I went over to see Terra, her son, and her new baby and it was just what I need...

Same Four Walls in Staying Connected

I’ve been growing increasingly anxious over the past few days, and I’m not totally sure what to attribute it to. I believe it’s largely connected to the lack of diversity in my routine. As I ment...


My family is going through a “calm” period right now, which is pleasant. My husband and I have both been joking and laughing more, and telling each other we love one another. We’ve even been snu...

Anticipation in Staying Connected

Well, knowing I had the condo to myself yesterday turned out to be pretty anti-climatic. It was extremely difficult for me to focus on studying, so I only got about halfway to my goal and I spent...

Off To a Nice Start in Staying Connected

Well, it’s only 9:45am, but so far today is turning out to be a pretty damn good day. It was my husband’s “sleep in day,” so I woke up with my daughter at 6am—something I don’t think I’ll ever g...

Irritated By Others in Staying Connected

Things with my husband are about 3,000% better. Like I mentioned in a previous entry, I think the downward spiral was the result of my husband not getting enough sleep. He classifies it as “falli...

Midnight Freak Out in Staying Connected

As its getting near the time I expect (hope!) my hours will get approved, I recalled one of the things I’d seen other therapists mention as an indicator that things are progressing. When I maile...


Mission Prepare Condo For Baby Morgan is now in full swing. Yesterday we rearranged all the furniture in our bedroom to make space for a crib. First we pulled out a black foot bench, dresser, IKE...

Someday in Staying Connected

EDIT: The Board of Behavioral Services is currently reviewing applications turned in during the week my application was received, which means sometime in the next week I should know if my hours w...

Morning Musings in Staying Connected

I know I wrote an entry last night before bed, so I will keep this entry breif! I think I’ve developed a Wednesday morning entry dependency… I was just scrolling Facebook and saw an ad for a tra...


Omg I am so. fucking. tired. Let’s see. Where to even begin? I’ll start with today and work backwards. Today I finally had my doctor’s appointment! I was honestly more excited about it for the ...

Baby Fever in Staying Connected

I just ordered my daughter one more sweatshirt and one more pair of shoes to get her through the season. She outgrew her favorite pair of pink shoes, and now all she has are her cowgirl boots and...

Work Updates in Staying Connected

This past Wednesday I busted out the 31 treatment plans that my old job was requesting from me. If I was focused, I probably could have done it in 2 hours (considering the majority of the work wa...


Okay, lets see. Yesterday I decided to send my brother the link to a craigslist ad for an old “Midge” barbie for $65 with a text that said, “You should get this. It’s a collectible.” He said, “...

Siblings in Staying Connected

This is a strange time in my pregnancy, because I’m far enough out of my first trimester to have minimal morning sickness or other negative symptoms, but I’m not far enough along to feel the baby...


This week, for the first time in a long time, I was able to do more than just survive. I feel pretty excellent about it. Last night during our together-time, my husband and I both shared that we...


I just made my calendar for February and I’m pretty happy because it’s very minimal. The only event on my calendar above and beyond my generic week is a single doctor’s appointment. This afterno...
