My House

My parents came up on Saturday and helped me around the house. We got the Christmas tree up! Dad cut down most of the bushes in the back yard (I have lots of bonfire fuel if anyone wants to come over) and cleaned out my gutters, bless his heart. The leaves had full-on composted in there. lolol We also dismantled the futon stand that my ex built and got it out of the nursery, so I could rearrange in there.

Christmas “Card”

Last year I made these really cute paper ornaments to use as our Christmas cards. And by “made” I mean I ordered them from Shutterfly. But I was able to order them back in October when they were doing a “free” deal and it was totally worth it. I had lofty goals to do one every year and then we’d have all these nice ornaments hanging on our tree. Well this year, as you know, has gone to sh*t. So

Holiday Survival

I met with my therapist on October 30. That’s right before a whole bunch of shtf with my ex on October 31 and into the first week of November. I’ve had a pretty rough month, y’all.

30 Before 30

If you remember my 30 Before 30 from days gone by, this one is definitely¬† tweaked in some major ways. Also, it’s not really stuff that I plan on getting done before my 30th birthday.

I feel like there’s a world of possibilities opening up to me. Did I ever want to be here? No. Am

Case of the Mondays?

Today feels awful Monday-y considering it’s Tuesday. I donated blood yesterday, then stayed up way too late. AND ran into the two people I least want to see right now. I didn’t have to interact with them…but just seeing them is enough to ruin your whole day. Anyway, other stuff happened, too. Good stuff. So don’t let the bad get you down, yo. I really need to track down my old 30 Before 30 list and repost it. I’m midway

#brandnewday!

Yup, the old blog is gone. I think – I hope – I have all the posts saved into a Word document. I was trying to figure out how to transfer the data from my old hosting to this one and could never get it to work, then figured I didn’t want all that old baggage all up in my bidness, anyway. It’s a fresh start, yo! A #brandnewday. I have SO MUCH to tell you. None of which I
