We did, in fact there was another house that came on after we put in our offer that was even more turnkey for slightly less money but smaller. The only thing we really plan to do in the house for now is finish the basement, but it’s not scary and murdery, and we don’t need to do it immediately in order to have plenty Read more

We think it was some sort of drainage hole, since it was at the bottom of the property’s slope. It just so happened to perfectly fit a trampoline inside it (seriously, the trampoline was level with the grass) and look like a pit where Scientologists would put suppressive persons. Very odd.

Fantasy looking at real estate is fun, actually looking at real estate is stressful AF! Read more

We decided to start house hunting! Which is kinda terrifying (we weren’t planning on diving in until November but there are some promising places in the market now so fuck it, why not) but also kinda great. We’re in no rush, lease isn’t up until end of April and we could go month to month after that if need be. We’re Read more

My MIL’s family is Minnesotan and they say “deal” a lot. Like “ go get that deal over there.”

1. Colorado. I fell in love with it when I was 14 and want to live there so bad. If I wasn’t with HV I probably would have ended up there. I’d be a nanny or something out in Estes Park or the Springs area. Maybe like an on-call nanny in Aspen. That’d be cool. Read more

I’m pretty sure he was born last month, but he’s got a tooth and everything! He’s actually the last out of our little age cohort to crawl, mostly because I don’t trust Pemi not to harass him on the floor. Also Pemi STILL shits everywhere and I don’t always find it right away and I just know BV is gonna eat one some Read more

BabyVader is, in theory, going to start crawling any second now, so I picked up a freestanding baby gate and some drawer locks. I’m angling for an Instant Pot but HV isn’t going for it.

Exactly! And the place provides linens and coffee and all that. My mom is a nutter.

All I’m bringing is my wallet and I have no pockets, unfortunately. I may end up seeing if my brother wants to sneak in a flask. Cool cousins are in town so let’s party!

Kind of, it’s “just outside Boston” in that Boston is an hour away. Nearest hotels are 20-30 minutes. I keep telling myself it’s only two nights, and then I can go to my parent-free house. Cool cousins are indeed here so that’s a win for me!

I posted my first grievance of the day in the OT, so my second is fuck family-obligation weddings. My cousin’s wedding is this weekend and I’m going because I couldn’t really think of an excuse not to beyond “I don’t wanna.” HV’s got the baby for the night at our rental place, my parents found a rental big enough for Read more

Today’s early morning groan is brought to you by my mother, who is acting like we’re going to Mars for a weekend and not an AirBnB in Massachusetts. I’m 27. I’ve traveled without my parents several times. Heck, I even survived secret vacations in college somehow! Anything I forget can be picked up at a grocery store,

I too have an ice cream complaint. My Stop & Shop keeps slicing through the Friendly’s when they open the cases and it’s driving me bananas. I’ve had to start meticulously checking each tub, which is annoying since ice cream is my last stop and BabyVader is Over It by then. Read more

It’s AMAZING. I’ve never cooked it any other way (all like 3 times I’ve made it haha) but it always comes out so perfect this way. The goat cheese takes the heat off just enough that I can eat half a package myself.

Ughhhhhhh that phone blowing up thing is the worst. The only thing I appreciate* about not making it to my due date is that I didn’t have to deal with much of that. I really hope everyone backs the hell off and that you don’t have to murder anyone (but if you do and I’m on the jury I’ll vote to acquit)! Read more

Tomorrow is one of my favorites- Trader Joe’s chicken shawarma in the crockpot, mixed with goat cheese and shredded once cooked, on naan with tzatziki and red onion and cucumber and feta if I remember, and tomato for HV and BV. BV will probably get some plain Greek yogurt mixed into his chicken since he reacts to the Read more

Still trying to shake this summer cold. I hate it. HV got pissed because I asked him to put the dishes away (usually my job but I don’t want to breathe on them), and I’m just like “I’d offer to let you be sick and me be healthy but it’d be 10x more work for me so not happening.” We went out this morning to pick up Read more

I’m sick. Summer colds suck. Added super fun suckage is that I’m on my period (after a 51 day cycle, thanks PCOS) so I keep leaking every time I sneeze or cough or move. On the upside, BabyVader has been sleeping AMAZINGLY and he’s getting a tooth or two! The drool is making him rashy but he doesn’t seem bothered. So Read more
