Things are going along a bit better than expected at the moment at home, I think because we are both trying to just be good to each other. We are separated, but still living together. It sounds complicated but it really isn’t. We’re roommates with a child basically. There’s definitely an air of sadness at times but it could be much worse.
On a side note, I am training myself to say “oh wow” in place of “oh fuck”, hoping Child will follow suit.
I am on a Great British Bake Off marathon, I really really love this show. Everyone is so pleasant.
I will start this off by saying that I feel like the things I am about to say are very personal and should not be expressed via some shit blog. Sometimes I have to speak from the heart, or lack thereof, instead of the brain. I am sorry to those of you that might feel hurt that I haven’t spoken to you personally. I want to get it out but I don’t want to talk. Continue reading
Child is small so we stayed home instead of trick or treating. He was a very good helper for handing out candy, as he is good at following instructions like, “close the door.” I gave him a sucker after he ate dinner, so now our entire existence is sticky. *note to self- suckers make the best and worst lint rollers depending on your viewpoint* He only got it suck in his hair once, I call that a success considering his long hair…the plumber has nicknamed him Hair Farm. I have eaten a dozen mini candy bars and would like to stop, but Child keeps handing them to me to open for him. I don’t want him to have too much sugar so I eat 3/4 of it and give him 1/4.
We watched Little Monsters, I fucking hate it… and are now watching The Nightmare Before Christmas, which, to Child, has the entertainment value of a cauliflower.
I must end this post, the sugar has gotten to Child and he needs a factory reset.
Average morning to all! I felt like Dave Matthews Band for the drive to work today, so I guess you could say I’m getting into the Halloween spirit.
The weather is getting cold and I don’t have anything interesting to say. I feel like this week is going by incredibly slow, and all I feel like doing is staying home with soup and blankets and Child. Possibly cookies. There are a couple recipes I’ve been wanting to try, the first being a mushroom brie soup (if i can find porcini mushrooms anywhere) and next would be dark chocolate chip ginger cookies. I might post pictures if I can figure out how.
Thinking about changing the look of the blog. I will keep the mascot. Yep, here I go. It will be a disaster for some time.
Sunday- Not much to report today, I put on a new sweater, then went out and bought an excessive amount of groceries and ate some Halloween candy…sweet tarts. I love sweet tarts. It’s kinda been a Halloween themed movie day, we watched Hocus Pocus, Edward Scissorhands, and now Young Frankenstein. I don’t believe Child is feeling very well, he’s been either very mad or very hyper. He is napping at the moment. I keep trying to reposition him so I have a free arm to write, but he is not going for it. Continue reading
We are watching The Lion King this morning, haven’t watched it since I was a kid. Jeremy Irons voices Scar and he is much more menacing than I remember. That “Be Prepared” song is unsettling on it’s own and they throw in an army of goose-stepping hyenas…damn. Continue reading
Child was making faces at me through an empty bear-shaped animal crackers container that was sitting on the end table… then he pushed it to the floor like a common house cat.
More Forensic Files tonight, it’s reminding me that I should keep all my windows locked. These are all insane, I love how people get caught. This one guy basically got caught because the woman he murdered had glitter dumped on her at a party beforehand. Continue reading
