Tomorrow marks six months since Steven proposed, and six months and seven days until the wedding. I can't believe we're already halfway there. There's been a lot of uncertainty lately. I've taken a pay cut at my job (while he's gotten a raise). I'm worried that some of the vendors we've chosen aren't going to … Continue reading Six Months to Go!
Technically, my blogaversary was Sunday, but since I can't keep track of time to save my life, I'm celebrating today. I've been doing this for three years now. Off and on, to be sure, but three years. That's a long time to commit to something! This blog has changed a lot since I started it. … Continue reading Three Year Blogaversary
Today marks one week of working at home. One week of not going out anywhere (except a few nights to go out and pick up food from a local establishment). One week of my cat being incredibly confused as to why I'm still home. One week of me anxiously worrying about what is going to … Continue reading Moody Monday
Good morning, world! As of 8:00 this morning, I embarked on a journey that I never thought would happen: I am working 100% remotely from my desk at my house. My cat is currently not pleased with me, because she is used to me being gone all day and her having the rule of the … Continue reading What a Week (And It’s Monday!)
So even though I wrote that whole post last week about how I'm going to start posting more often (trying to stick with my original "set" of posts that I was doing weekly), and then I went on vacation and that just kinda ruined everything. However, it was the most amazing vacation. We went back … Continue reading To the Love of My Life…
Is it really August already? Where has the year gone? We're eight months into this thing and I'm still over here thinking it's March or something. I've been super busy these past few months, and I haven't been able to update my blog like I want to. There's a whole post I've written about excuses, … Continue reading Hello, August!
...again! I'm sure you all remember last year, where I submitted my short story "Darkest After Dawn" to Z Publishing House, after they found a short story of mine on Montevallo's website and sent me an invitation to submit. Well, they sent me another invitation this year, to submit to the America's Emerging Deep South … Continue reading I’m Published!
...even though I read a great blog post a couple months ago telling bloggers that they shouldn't feel ashamed/guilty that "real life" has gotten in the way of their blogging. (I can't remember where I read it now.) Because yes, while I absolutely love blogging (it's been almost two years now!), I still have a … Continue reading I Feel the Need to Apologize…
This post is several weeks late. I'm still not exactly sure what happened to my time last week (or this weekend), but it seems like I'm running out of time everywhere in my life. (Also, can we switch to a four-day work week? A two-day weekend is not enough time to recover.) Long story short, though, … Continue reading Kami-Con!
Well, Internet, I went and did something on Friday that I have been wanting to do ever since I moved out on my own: I adopted my very own kitty! As backstory, this cat has been living on a friend's porch for several months. I saw her at our X-Wing Christmas party (Steven had to … Continue reading Meet Kiki!
