Renovating a Life in 10 Days or Less

IMG_7110

I don’t even know where the beginning actual begins, but I’ll start with 5 pm on December 29th; the moment we closed on our new home. You may remember that we were two weeks late to close. We were on a tight schedule to begin with, but losing two entire weeks meant that we had only ONE week to do...


All I Want for Christmas is a Set. Of. Keys.

Christmas-Keys

It’s Christmas time so I hope (no matter how/what you celebrate) that you’re surrounded by loved ones, drinking fun drinks, and eating yummy eats. Wherever you are, whoever you with, I hope that you don’t even have time to read this because you’re engrossed in holiday festivities. But I must write, so write I will. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I’m trying my ass...


T-Minus 10 Days Until Closing…

I apologize in advance, but I predict that the only thing I’ll be able to talk about / think about / write about over the next month is our impending home purchase. It’s basically one of the biggest things I’ve ever done besides growing and birthing humans, and y’all know I couldn’t shut up about those events. At least this...


The Things You’ve Seen Me Through…

thanks

It’s hard to feel like “The Feminist Breeder” when I’m done breeding and most of the time I’m too busy/overwhelmed to let myself get my feminist panties in a bunch over some misogynistic bullshit. Mostly all I talk about anymore is stuff going on in my life. MY life. Not the life of feminists or breeders. But my very own...


I Am Not Cut Out for House Shopping

It’s not like I ever thought that shopping for a house would be easy. I didn’t wake up one day and say, “You know what would be simple and fun? Trying to buy an entire house!” I didn’t assume that finding a house or qualifying a loan would be as simple as dropping into Target for some more shampoo. I...


I Can’t “Contain” Myself

I’ll tell you a little something and some of you might be like, “LOL, WHUT. You are insane.” Well. Maybe most of you will say that. It sorta feels insane. Even I can admit that. Or maybe you’ll be like, “No, that makes perfect sense.” It sorta feels that way, too. I’m at a crossroads where I can either take...


We Deserve a Forever Home. Or Do We?

FullSizeRender

Every time I start to think I deserve something out of this life, I remember all the people who work so much harder than I do who are hurting and have nothing. Why does my family deserve to eat well when the homeless man sleeping outside my Trader Joe’s would be grateful for a half-eaten sandwich? Why does my family...
