This is Happening

So … here is a thing that is happening.  I am buying a house. Holy shitballs I’m doing a totally adult thing, like an adult and stuff.  And I’m FREAKING TERRIFIED and stressed and anxious and also very happy and excited.  Basically all of the feels. Mike and I have been together just over 3 years now.  We started talking…

6 Little Men

For Christmas, a friend got me six little plastic men that are designed to work as drink markers. My “Drinking Buddies.” They literally hang off the side of a glass by their hands. Please note (see above) that these men are largely nude, wearing basically a speedo. They are named and everything. They day she gave them to me, we quickly…

180 in 365

* NaBloPoMo: Day 17 * Looking back to one year from today, I still find it kind of surreal, the life I’m currently living. A lot has happened. A whole lot. Some really shitty stuff and some really great stuff and a crap ton of just general life stuff in between. My life right now is good. It’s not perfect.…

Teenage Mornings

* NaBloPoMo: Day 15 * This may look like a giant lump of “gray” to most people, but this is my view most mornings during the ride from the apartment to the high school. The morning I took this, I had to scrape the windows (bane of my fucking existence) and by the time I did that and got in…

Failing at Wii Music

On what appeared to be a whim this week, my son dug out Wii Music. A game we’ve owned for quite some time, but I don’t think we have ever actually played. The basic concept of the game is that you use the Wii Remove and Nunchuck to simulate playing various instruments (66 different instruments to be exact). You choose a…

Success

I managed to survive my first “Shitty Single Mom Milestone.” I made it through two weeks on about next to nothing. I knew going in that I would have weeks or months like this. Coming off of a short trip to Nashville for the men’s International Convention, followed immediately by a week at Harmony Camp, it was really just inevitable. I…

Aside

Having a conversation with my son about bringing an old video game system to my house …. “It’s okay. I don’t need that here.”

Birthday Week Shenanigans

I already posted about taking Jamison to the Lazer Team movie a week-ish or more ago, which technically was the first “birthday gift” he received. His actual birthday was this past Thursday (Feb 4) and so there were even more birthday related activities this week. Here’s the rundown: On Wednesday, we did his traditional “birthday dinner” at a restaurant of his choosing,…

Lazer Team – Haaaaaaaaay

To talk about “Lazer Team”, I need to talk about Rooster Teeth a little bit first. I’ll save any in depth talk for a separate post, but quickly, Rooster Teeth is a company that produces online content. From animated series to video game play based series to comedy series, they cover it. If you are a gamer who loves comedy, or a comedy…

My Girl

Last week I posted about my son, today is about my daughter. We have been through a lot the two of us. We have a very close and complicated and wonderful relationship. I’m not sure what I’d do without her in my life. So, here is a photo retrospective, a Flashback if you will, to the last almost 22 years with…
