Things are Hard

This post has taken like two weeks to write but I’m too fucking tired to start over so bear with the edits and updates. I've had a series of difficult things happen, aside from operating at a half tank due to the shift parenting situation, which will last only one more week. (it’s over now,... Continue Reading →


The Quotideien

Ugh. I started writing almost two weeks ago and never got around to finishing because life feels like its mostly survival mode right now. As it happens, I have my full lunch break available to me before I need to leave to go give a training, and I am going to spend it updating because... Continue Reading →

The Longest Shortest Month

It has been a VERY long month. February, despite lasting all of two days, will probably follow suit. It is a marathon, not a sprint . . .I’m trying to pace myself. I finished up one of my busiest parts of the year, where I am teaching 5-7 classes every day for weeks on end... Continue Reading →

Month Five and Happy 20Gayteen!

Yesterday Angus hit 5 months! We haven’t take his ‘official’ 5 month pictures yet, but here’s one I caught yesterday to give you a peak: Mostly I’m going to tell you about family drama. There’s Xmas in Indiana, with L’s family. On the whole, it wasn’t bad. Since L’s mom sold her house in their... Continue Reading →

The Most Wonderful Time of the year

Well, late again but feeling less guilt ridden about it anyway.   Here’s the lowdown for this update:   Angus FOUR MONTHS OLD! 11 lbs! Getting YUGE!   Gus continues to grow into a full fledged baby. He’s wearing 0-3 and some 3 month size clothing, and despite thinking we’d wait until after the holidays,... Continue Reading →

I’m behind on my once a month goal! I know NONE of you care, but I made a commitment to myself, damnit.   I feel like I want to organize my post a bit more than usual, since I actually feel like I have a lot on my mind that I’ve been wanting to share... Continue Reading →

Month 2

I'm feeling really proud that I'm posting once a month. I hope this will continue. Feel free to affirm the hell outta me about this, if you want. Angus' birthday isn't the sole reason for posting, but it's a good reminder that we've managed to make it through another month of keeping two kids alive... Continue Reading →

Month 1

Holy shit, y'all. We made it one whole month with two kids - who are both alive and, it would appear, thriving. I am still exhausted. Some things have definitely gotten easier - Angus has gained enough weight continuously that we can now let him sleep a 3-4 hour stretch at night. L has been... Continue Reading →

Angus the Mighty

Sorry to leave y'all hanging . . . Meet Angus Greer:  Here's the story: When we woke up on Wednesday morning, we knew induction was coming - but we thought we might have up to a week to get things finalized. You know, make a few more burritos, clean the house, that kind of thing.... Continue Reading →
