Coasting in Staying Connected

Happy Sunday, friends. Things are pretty relaxed at my house today. Last night my husband decided he wanted to call it a night early, so we both went to bed around 10pm. This morning my daughter ...


There are just three brief things on my mind this morning. 1.) Yesterday I came across an entry that I wrote about a year ago. (You know, the one that pops up on the side of the page.) In the en...


You know what I am really excited about? My life one year from now. By then Morgan will be coming up on my favorite age – 12 months old. She is going to be smiling, laughing, snuggling, being ch...


I just learned that one of my clients cancelled today, and the relief I felt was nearly palpable, you guys. I am really feeling my pregnancy this week. I mean, I’m feeling it in ways that I don’...


I don’t want to speak too soon, but I think we finally got our daughter’s sleep back on track. I believe the thing that messed it up in the first place was Saturday night, which was frustrating....


It looks like my daughter is not going to nap today, again, which frankly I’m pretty devastated about. She went to bed about 45 minutes ago and has been rolling around and talking to herself the ...

Work Vent in Staying Connected

Today was an early wakeup day for me, so I’m feeling super tired right now. I have to see my first client in 45 minutes, and I still have to get ready. I think I may write a short entry and then ...


Warning: I don’t have anything new to talk about, but I want to continue to gush about all of the things I’m looking forward to. The thing that’s been on my mind the most recently is this upcomin...


I am so tired. I am also so glad that today I only have three clients and no other obligations. I do have, however, a long ass list of little things I need to do, which is annoying. It’s about ...


Whew. Life, man. It’s pretty crazy. So, I’ve been wanting to write more about my exam experience. At this point, sadly, I’ve probably forgotten a lot of the details. I remember, the morning bef...


I passed.


Well, guys. This is it. It’s Sunday afternoon and I just put my daughter down for a nap. I’m going to spend the next couple of hours reviewing my study materials for the last time before taking m...


All I want to do these days is eat, sleep, and buy things online. My husband is having to bite his tongue about all the stuff I’ve been ordering, but I think I’m being relatively conservative. Mo...


Oh, my God. I am so tired. I should really be going to sleep and not journaling. I called out of work tomorrow, which I think was a smart move. I’m still going to have to work for about two and ...


Well, the Final Mock Exam yesterday went much worse than I could have imagined, which is extremely frustrating considering my REAL exam is on Monday… I don’t know if I mentioned it, but when I t...


Today I take my Final Mock Exam. It will be the last thing I do in order to prepare for the licensing exam on Monday. I’ve already taken two 2-hour mock exams and one 4-hour mock exam. For some ...

Big Spender in Staying Connected

Gah, I am so tired for no reason other than I’m pregnant. It sucks. But at least I’m going to get a beautiful baby out of it, eventually. Good news! We got our federal tax return. YAY! I feel so...


A couple of nights ago, for a reason that I have zero recollection of now, I decided to do some light social media stalking of my ex, Justin. I had found several months ago that he got married, a...


T-minus one week until my licensing exam. My daughter has been asleep for about 30 minutes now. This is always a nice time of day. If things go well, I should get the next hour and a half or so ...


Today was my sleep-in day and I slept in all the way to 9am, which is pretty late for me. The thing is, at 9am I still didn’t feel ready to wake up, but I knew my husband would get frustrated if ...


This morning, after my husband left to take care of our daughter and I was in the bed by myself, I had a sex dream about a dream man who happened to be black. This is a first for me. I don’t thin...


There is a lot on my mind this morning. It’s about two and a half weeks until my licensing exam, which, while of course I’m incredibly excited by the prospect of being licensed, I’m also excited...

Sprinting in Staying Connected

Ooph. I’m tired. I’ve had a busy past few days. Sunday we did our normal grocery shopping thing in the morning, and then while our daughter was napping I crossed a few small things off my to-do ...


Good morning. Things continue to run smoothly around here. I think it helps a lot that I had gobs of cancellations this week. I was supposed to meet with 24 people, and instead its looking like ...

The Calm in Staying Connected

I am so happy to not feel totally swamped this morning. Yesterday, after taking my mock exam and meeting with a few clients, I was really, really exhausted - feeling content, but exhausted, none...
