life

Hello, my dear internet friends. Did you miss me? I’ve been home from my vacation for a few days and attempting, mostly in vain, to get back into the swing of real life. I worked, sort of successfully. I’ve been trying to get my house in order, completely unsuccessfully. Really the only thing I’ve been…

Happy New Year internet friends. The holiday season for me has been filled with fun, travel, and the people I love. Including many children, which means that now I’m quite sick and likely won’t be awake at midnight. I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been healthy on NYE in the…

My stepdad turned 60 over the weekend. His birthday conveniently coincided not only with his favorite football team, the Buffalo Bills, taking on their longtime rivals, the Miami Dolphins, in Miami, but the resort where my sweet, adorable cousin works in Fort Lauderdale was also hosting a Buffalo Bills-themed weekend, complete with game tickets, transportation,…

It’s been brought to my attention that it’s November 12, and I’ve only posted twice in this entire month. Not that I necessarily needed the reminder because, as any writer/blogger/creative type knows, when we aren’t creating, we’re thinking about creating. Stressing about it. Allowing it to hang over our heads like big grey storm clouds.…

I’m sitting in my apartment in Albany, surrounded by boxes and misplaced furniture, listening to my nephew yell about something weird while playing Fortnite. Our move is finally over, with the exception of the stuff still in my car that we just didn’t have the fortitude to move today. It’s weird finally living here, with…

My fellow bloggers. Do you ever look at your monthly stats, hate yourself for not posting more often and then remember that everything around you is exploding and you can’t imagine spending more time attached to your computer than you already do? I don’t want to spend my whole life updating y’all about what’s happening…

Read more I suck at blogging this month

It’s more difficult today than it has been in a long time. I’m just so tired. And not like “I need a nap” tired, but more like “Living is exhausting” tired. Dan and I spent the weekend in Rochester trying to get ready to move. His wonderful, patient oldest sister helped us pack a bunch,…

It is 12:42 am EST, and I’m still sitting at my computer. A lot has gone down in the past week at my job and there are some major changes coming, so I’ve been trying to devote as much of my time and energy to that as possible. In addition, I’m still trying to move.…

Read more Tiny life update at 1 am

Hello internet friends! I’m currently sitting in our new place in Albany! We arrived Friday evening, signed our lease and spent the entire weekend running errands and attempting to get our shit together somewhat so that Dan could have a functional home before we move the bulk of our stuff. I think we did pretty…

Read more Greetings from my new apartment!

So, I’m home. For the foreseeable future.┬áThat alone is revolutionary at this point. My Danny comes home in a couple days and I’m so, so excited. I was supposed to head out to Michigan to help him move but we ultimately decided that it wasn’t necessary. We made the decision primarily for financial reasons, as…

Read more Oh hey, another life update

Hello internet friends! At the moment I’m sitting in bed, in Colonie NY (outside of Albany), trying to work, blog, listen to podcasts about social media marketing and trying to organize my thoughts about the apartments I saw today. Also, I’m trying not to fall asleep. It’s been a long day. I’m in Albany attempting…

Oddly, Father’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. Every year my parents (meaning mom and stepdad) host a big barbecue and so many of my favorite people come to eat, drink and laugh. It’s the best, and my stepdad, who is basically the greatest dad ever, is in his element. He can usually be…

I saw this post a few weeks ago on Jessica Jade Beauty and thought it was a fun idea. I’ve been working on it for a long time; it’s way harder than I thought it would be. A – Animation I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned this before, but I love cartoons. Disney and Dreamworks…

Read more The A to Z of me

If you’ve been paying attention for the past six-ish months, you’d know that Dan has been working in rural northern Michigan, and I’ve been spending a few weeks here and a few weeks home since March. I think I’ve been home for a total of four weeks in the last four months, and it’s been…
