Holidaze ’13

  Holiday season ’13 is officially done. It was an unexpectedly awesome season this year but holy crap there was just so much. So much. From the first night of Yule straight on until several days from now kind of felt like listening to 10 songs all at once while … Continue Reading →


The holidays have never been my strong point, and I tend to sort of absorb into myself to get through the month. The last few years have actually been mildly improved over previous ones. Okay, maybe significantly improved if I really think about it. There was once a time when … Continue Reading →

An explosion of feels

Xan had surgery on the 25th to remove the little lump off his finger. They aren’t entirely sure what it is, but it’s probably harmless, so after taking him to the doctor (who then referred us to a dermatologist or a cosmetic surgeon or something) she decided to take it … Continue Reading →

Apparently Mac isn’t just superior in overall stability and virus-prevention, but also in its resurrection abilities. As I’ve mentioned in previous entries, Z spilled a cup of coffee on my Macbook pro (which wasn’t even finished being paid off) and it died. I brought it back to Futureshop where I’d … Continue Reading →

Well, Yule was uneventful. As a was the new year. I just wasn’t feeling the holiday spirit. I can’t tell if I’m depressed or ill, or perhaps a combination of both. The last few days I’ve felt like absolute shit and have wavered between a terrible migraine and wanting to … Continue Reading →

I need to just commit to sitting down and writing more. Zephyra had her last at-home OT appointment this Wednesday with her speech pathologist and it went amazingly. She’s made so much progress in the last few months, it’s really incredible. At this point she has normal speech and oral … Continue Reading →

My computer’s power cord is malfunctioning. Again. Fuck. I do not understand why I keep going through them so fast. I don’t yank them around, I don’t store them poorly… I keep the computer plugged in nearly 24/7 and I know dozens of others who do the same who have … Continue Reading →

Happy Pride Week! (I fucking love my [ Coastal Scents palette ]. Doing this was so much fun). I shouldn’t be awake right now, but I’m staying up just long enough to post this as a photo entry because I can’t possibly sit down and write. Now, or ever (it … Continue Reading →

Dream Diary: I had a dream we were living in some sort of run down apartment building rather than our current, much nicer home. It was filthy, loud, cramped and situated in the middle of what appeared to be the projects of a city I was completely unfamiliar with. Everything … Continue Reading →
