Note to self

You are 34, not 24. You can’t drink all the things and then bounce right back the next day.  You will feel like shit all day because of it, and the 4-year-old doesn’t care.  You will still be required to roller skate and play super hero squad .  Suck it up, sweetheart.

Face it: You’re old.

open up my head and let me out

  • I picked up a bunch of new followers in the last week.  Welcome. Check out my about me page if you want.
  • I had book club tonight. It was interesting, and I think I’ll go back, but I admit to thinking more than once during the evening: I gave up sex for this. Fail. Tonight was supposed to be date night.
  • I finally ordered the stuff I needed for my new Wii from Amazon, and it’s being shipped to an old address. I’m not even sure how this happened. FUCK. So this should be fun to deal with.
  • Our water park trip is official. I put down a deposit on the condo today. We are going to the Wisconsin Dells. I have never been to Wisconsin. I am strangely excited. I’m going to eat cheese curds while I’m there. It’s decided. 
  • This weekend I will be rollerskating. I haven’t roller skated since college. Back in 1998, Brad, James, Michelle, and I drove to Jefferson City to get our skate on.  Michelle got her ass kicked by a middle schooler, and I almost got thrown out for trying to fight the middle schooler. Don’t drink and skate, people.  I seriously miss college sometimes. Those were the days. #Mizzou-rah! 
  • OMG that last bullet point makes me sound so fucking old. I’m only 34, I swear.
  • Today I met with a client that I haven’t seen since 2011.  He didn’t recognize me at first, and finally said, “Oh you are much thinner and your hair is much shorter.”  I replied, “Yep, cancer will do that.”  I enjoyed the look on his face.  Commenting on my body/appearance is not cool, dude.  
  • Tomorrow is Friday! FINALLY. ❤


Despite having a sick kid on my hands today, I have accomplished quite a bit, which makes me happy.  I’m super stressed nowadays with work and personal obligations, and I feel like I have made some progress in getting my life back under control these past two days.  Today I have so far:

  1. Resolved the issue of the $17,000.00 bill. I don’t owe it. Insurance is paying. *win*
  2. Set up payments on one of my many other medical bills that I do actually owe. *fail*
  3. Waited on hold for an hour (not kidding) to speak to a representative at Anthem about my new insurance plan. Should have all that resolved by Friday, so that I can see my new rheumatologist on Tuesday. Good thing too, because my knee is swollen yet again.
  4. Went to the office and did a few things that absolutely had to be dealt with today.
  5. Purchased a new work laptop. My old one died last week after 3 years of heavy use. I guess I can’t complain. I got a much better one this time.
  6. Set up an appointment to have my car serviced next week.
  7. Set up a dental appointment.
  8. Finally bought Jackson a pair of headphones. This was the best $20 I have ever spent.
  9. Purchased my ticket to Wolpertinger 2014 on Sunday.  
  10. Set up a babysitter for #9. 

Now if I can just convince myself to go run those three miles.  I need a workout buddy. 


I just had my first experience with a middle of the night trip to the drug store to get meds for my sick kid. I hope the meds kick in soon. I’m tired. Why do the symptoms always first appear in the middle of the night?

Actually having to take the sick 4-year-old with you sucks. Especially when it’s 14 degrees outside. This is one of those times when it really sucks being divorced.
