Rough Week

This was an incredibly rough week. I spiked a mania high. Tis the season. It’s getting warm outside. The sun is out later. Mania comes with the season of spring and summer. It was only natural that I would start climbing higher and higher. Monday was rough. I went to work and had full intentions […]

Monthly Recap | March 2017

I really slacked at writing this past month. I wrote three times in the month of March. Either I didn’t feel the need to write or I got lazy, either way, it didn’t happen. So, here I sit, writing a blog post while I listen to my Discovery Weekly Spotify playlist. Mikhail is home sick […]

Things turning around?

I’m in a zone. Picture it – I’ve got my sweats on. I just got the boys on the bus. It’s dark in the house, the only light shining through is the darkness of the gloomy, rainy day outside. The light from my laptop screen is brightening my face. I’ve got my feet up. I’ve […]

Not a Recap

I contemplating writing this entry tomorrow evening and calling it a weekly recap. My problem is that Mike is gone, Mikhail in bed, Nick at a sleepover, and I’m left to fend for myself. With nothing to do, I decided to write this entry now. I got my Discover Weekly Playlist on Spotify playing and […]

Piecing The Puzzle Together

Slowly but surely I am piecing the puzzle pieces together. I received my acceptance/offer letter in the email yesterday. It included what documents I needed for my first day, paperwork for my drug test, parking information, and my official letter of offering from the company. The letter from the company basically told me congratulations, what […]

2016 – A year in review.

2016 was pretty crazy. Normally on the last few days of the year, I write about my resolutions proposed accomplishments that I achieved throughout the year but I decided to add little something to my annual post. I want to look back and write some of the things that happened this year. I am going […]

Merry Christmas 2016

Feeling Christmasy

Tis the season. I’m going to do my best to stay on track while writing this entry. My mind is all over the place and I finally have a day off where I don’t have someone who is home sick with me. I’m taking it in with Lindsay Sterling Radio on Spotify. I have quite […]

State Fair and More Fun

So this week has been harsh. I ruptured my ear drum on Tuesday. I went to Urgent Care and had the normal doctor, who is always there, say that he couldn’t even see in my ear to see if it was ruptured. He wrote me out a prescription for an antibiotic that he ALWAYS writes […]

One Week Later

So it’s been a week since I last wrote. I did not take the time to read my last post so I don’t entirely know what I wrote about other than writing about work. I guess I wanted to give a short little update since then. Work Life So, I worked Tuesday-Thursday this week in […]

Overwhelmed.

I have been incredibly overwhelmed the past few weeks. I feel like everyone has these such high standards for me to take on and I cannot even come close to meeting them. They want the house to look a certain way. They want the kids acting a certain way. I need to find a job […]

Hot Damn.

I got my blanket on, my feet kicked up, and Pandora blasted … time to write an entry. Mike and I just ate lunch together thanks to me. I ran to Jersey Mike’s. Not what he was hoping (Kopp’s) but it was food nonetheless. You see, I won a $200 American Express gift card on […]

Blogging Therapy

I’m hoping writing instead of sitting in silence with my thoughts would be a better option. So, here I am, writing to you. I had a semi-productive day today – not as productive as the other people in this house, in some people’s eyes. The day started early with arguing and screaming between Mikhail and […]

Valentine.

Will you… … be mine? Today was Valentine’s Day. For the most part of the day, it was a pretty good day. It started with me sleeping 10.5 hours and waking up at a glorious hour of almost 9 am. I woke up and made myself a pot of coffee. I took my time drinking […]

Relaxed.

I am liking these one word entry titles. Like, describe this entry in ONE word. Hmm, maybe something I might start doing from now on. We’ll see, right? Please let me take a moment to shout out to my┬áSTALKERS!┬áHi stalkers! I see you, seeing me, creeping, and watching, every single day? Why not leave a […]

A little better, but not easier…

Things are a little better, but they’re definitely not easier. He will be home in 1-2 days depending on how you count or look at things. We’ve spent tons of time text each other and talking on the phone. He’s spent hours in his hotel room while being on his phone with me instead of […]
