“Spring” Cleaning, Part 2

Day 6 – The Windows Read the full article here. I had someone pressure-wash my house, so I’m gonna say the exterior windows were handled. I did clean the interior glass of the ones in the common areas, and mine and Wade’s rooms. It feels like a pointless task considering how many animal noses and toddler hands are smeared over them, but I guess it should be done at least every once in awhile. Day 7 – The Walls Read

Dirty Thirty

I had a pretty great 30th Birthday celebration, y’all. The week prior to my birthday I went on a camping trip with my family. The night of my birthday one of my best friends from high school came over and we sat on my porch sipping beer and relaxing. The weekend after my birthday was my “BANGIN’ 30TH BIRTHDAY PARTY” and I had so much fun. Saturday: bike rideputt-puttlunch + ice creampedicuresdinnerrandom adventure to a house showdrinks Sunday: breakfast at

To My Ex-Husband, On Our Anniversary…

We started dating sometime in August 2008. A month or two later we realized we didn’t really remember when when started dating, so we didn’t have an official anniversary. We knew it was mid-August, so we picked a date: August 14. Two years later we got married on August 14, 2010. Seven years after that you moved out of the house on August 14, 2017. We filed for divorce two months later. I don’t know when you gave up on

Framed Children’s Book Wall Art…Thing

I don’t even have the original inspiration pinned anymore. That’s how long ago I started this nightmare of a project. It seemed like an awesome way to fill a nursery with art! I should’ve known I couldn’t follow through, though. *tragic, dramatic weeping* So the original people had some children’s book that was actually significant to both of them. They framed all the pages and hung them up and it was super cute. Instead of going with a book that

Anniversaries…

Life is interesting, you know? A year and a half ago I thought I was happily married. I guess I wasn’t. Because about a year ago, my life went to shit. I wasn’t sure what to expect as this time of the year loomed…but really, for the most part, things are good. Definitely infinitely better than where I was last year. Which really isn’t very impressive. That bar was set pretty low. Did you know that all this started (for

“Spring” Cleaning, Part 1

Day 1 – The Kitchen Read the full article here. Oh I really like the way they’re doing it now. Instead of just giving you a single project saying “this is what you must do today” they’re saying “If you’ve got all day, do this. If you’ve got 10 minutes, do this. If you only have 1 minute, do this.” So that’s cool. Of course, I don’t do anything even remotely close to when they said I should do it,

Dream Journal?

I had a weird dream last night. I don’t think it’s significant or anything, I just wanted to type it out because it’s been so long since I had a weird dream. lol! Anyway, so idk where we were, but we discovered that if we put on these red glasses and stood in certain spots, we could travel to a parallel universe. Everything was the same, but different. As parallel universes go, you know. But then it turned out that

And just like that…

…my baby boy is two! I can’t believe it. I really can’t. I have so much fun hanging out with this boy. His personality! Oh my goodness he’s hilarious. He does this thing where, when he’s trying to get my attention he’ll turn his head totally sideways and look at me and say…”fruit stripes?” (Because that’s ALL HE EVER WANTS TO EAT.) omg it’s just so cute. He can totally frustrate me at times, but 98% of the time that

Spring Cleaning…another attempt.

I signed up for the stupid Apartment Therapy Spring Cleaning…thing…again. I did exactly none of it last year. Maybe this year I will? Maybe? I mean, I doubt it. But whatever. There’s nothing I like more than signing up for newsletters that make me feel guilty for being the lazy SOB that I am. If you’d like to “participate” as well, here’s the link.

Forgiveness

I’ve mentioned Divorce Care before. We met last night, and the topic was “Forgiveness”. (Thank God they skipped over “New Relationships” because after “Single Sexuality” I just don’t think I could take any more awkwardness.) Anyway, I’ve been mulling over the idea of it in regards to my own situation (forgiveness, not sexuality) ever since. In the video, they were talking about how forgiveness means you’re no longer wishing to “get even” with your ex. You don’t care anymore about
