Posts that are about me or my life.


Life has been interesting. Yeah, we’ll go with that. This week just hasn’t been the best time. I spent Sun and Mon being sick with GI funk. Yippies. Because, seriously, who doesn’t like barfing up your toes or shitting until your lips are coming out your asshole? Left work early on Sun and then called out on Mon. Read the rest of this entry



Monkey has his driver’s permit! Woot! I’m so excited about that. It’ll make things so much easier for there to be a second driver in the household. Hell, Dragon is planning to get her driver’s license this summer too.  Read the rest of this entry


My sleep has been shit. It’s a chronic problem for me. I went and saw a sleep specialist. So, I’m going to have to make some major changes in the scheduling of my life. But having good sleep will be worth it. It means having a fixed Read the rest of this entry


Life has been busy, but I am currently on vacation which has been wonderfully lazy. I’ve spent most of the week listening to books, loafing and doing some crochet. Been nice to not have to work or rush around. The weather has been crappy. The ice has been evil, makes the roads crappy to drive on. Luckily I haven’t really had to go anywhere. Well, done some travelling but has been local. Read the rest of this entry


Seems there is always a reason for me to be at work. But no, I don’t have a problem. I’m not a workaholic. I can quit whenever I want to. Really…

Yeah, anyway.

How are you guys all doing?

I’ve been feeling under the weather. Guts all gnarly. Tired. Not getting enough sleep.


Things have been pretty tumultuous. Mom has been randomly falling asleep and can’t drive because of it. They have yet to sort out why she’s having the problem. Getting to the diagnosis can be so convoluted and frustrating. There isn’t really anything anyone can do until we know what the problem is. It also leaves room to ruminate on all the “what if…” thoughts. Been trying to be supportive by giving her rides when she needs them. Seems fair since they toted my ass around for a long time before I got my license. It hasn’t been much. Just one appointment. Read the rest of this entry

Reading Challenge

Every year, I set myself a reading challenge through good reads. I love to read, but for some reason usually put this pleasure on the back burner. When I set myself the reading challenge, I find that I read the way that I want to. No idea why this challenge helps me do this, but I am grateful for the tool. Each time I open a book, I am excited to enter another world. Each time I close a book, I am left with a sense of satisfaction and a strange thoughtfulness that doesn’t come at any other time in my life.  Read the rest of this entry


And just like that, Halloween has come and gone. The holiday always zooms by. I feel that the party went well. A little more disorganized then I’d like, but I think that over all it went smoothly enough. Seemed like everyone had a good time and that is what really matters. I feel that all the work that went into it was worth it. Read the rest of this entry

Halloween Crunch!

Halloween is almost here. We’ve got things well lined up, but I still feel the pressure to get everything right for the party. I have the piñata done. That’s a huge relief. Monkey was awesome and gave me a lot of help. There are a ton of hours in that! My costume is pretty well set, just a few adjustments need to be done. I still have no idea what I’m going to be doing for the make up. I couldn’t get any of the white make up products to actually cover in a bold white and stay put when I started putting the glitter Read the rest of this entry

Looking Forward

There’s a lot coming up for me.

This Friday we are going to New York to visit a college that Dragon is interested in. Long drive.  Read the rest of this entry
