Sweater Weather

Hello humans of the internet! It’s sweater weather. Kind of. The point is that Peggy has a sweater. And that sweater has a panda on the butt.

Also she’s so big now, picture from 8 months ago for comparison

Same rug. She’s literally 50lbs heavier now than she was in the second picture. I do still have that tiny rope toy, I don’t know if that means I’m sentimental or just too lazy to throw things away.

Much love

Halloween Shopping

Hello humans of the internet! I went shopping and bought some Halloween stuff because I’m an adult. I found some bat wings! Also other stuff.

This was the same shopping trip that the gnome from yesterday was from. It was a lot of fun. I got to hang out with my friend Rachel (see I have friends). Technically we went shopping last weekend, and I’m just now posting this because I had to make my bed to take that picture.

Not sorry.

Hello humans of the internet! I know it’s October. I know it’s way too early to buy Christmas decorations. I know I have always been one to be against all this early and over done Christmas. But here’s the thing: this is adorable, I can’t wait to celebrate Christmas with Schulz, and every thing else I bought on this shopping trip was for Halloween (or food).

I can’t wait to have a home someday to decorate for holidays and find a place for him at Christmas.

Introducing Kai

Hello humans of the internet! I know I was feeling particularly emotional yesterday. Thank you for letting me talk about that and thank you for the support. Today I wanted to talk about an adorable addition to my little family of critters.

Awhile back I made a post about putting together a fish tank for a betta and talked about getting a fish. This was months ago. I brought Kai the fish home shortly after that post. Kai was in a Walmart and looking not so great which is why I wanted to bring him home. I called my brother (this sort of thing is his actual profession) and followed his instructions for taking care of Kai. Now Kai is finally healed up enough that I feel comfortable sharing him with y’all. For context, he had almost no fins. There were nasty black rotting looking bits on his tail. I don’t actually have a picture because the phone I had then broke. But here is what he looks like today.

Much love

Post/Comment Anxiety

Hello humans of the internet! For anyone who my be new here: I’m a dyslexic person. I feel like I haven’t talked about that much even though the original plan for this blog was to talk about being in school with dyslexic. Of course that was 4 or 5 years ago and I’m 24 now and never going back to school.

I like to tell myself that dyslexic doesn’t affect any more. This is a lie as evident throughout this blog. But this morning, as I tried to read other’s blogs, I just couldn’t. And I felt guilty about not being able to force the shapes into sounds and squeeze out understanding. And now I’m trying to write this post to explain the feelings and it’s going so slow and I know that going slow doesn’t even help. This post and every post I write will have will have little errors. Since, I’m on my phone it’ll replace my mistakes, sometimes with the right word, sometimes not. And then I’ll sit here, reading it over, knowing that you might not read what I’m saying.

I cannot count the number of times I’ve typed up a comment or an email to someone who’s blog I follow only to never send it. I know the likelihood that it won’t be what I want it to be is too high. I know that I could have read the post wrong and the comment wouldn’t even make sense.

And then I feel guilty.

I want to tell all these people that they’re amazing. I want them to know that they’re doing a great job. But, who am I? I’m just a person who can barely read and write, trying to convince the world and myself that being dyslexic isn’t my only defining characteristic. Why would anyone care if I think they’re blog is good? I’m not exactly the person anyone would ask.

Scary Things

Hello humans of the internet! I. Was thinking about what’s scary when you’re a kid and how that’s not so scary when you grow up. When you’re a child you’re scared of ghosts, spiders, the dark, witches, snowmen (maybe that one is just me)

Things to say to a person who’s significant other is deployed

Hello humans of the internet! I made a list of well meaning but not great things people have said during this deployment. And I started thinking, you know what’s a lot more positive and helpful. Good things to say. So here is a list of some things I’d like to hear. If you’re a person who’s person is now or has ever been deployed feel free to add to it.

  1. I have like 2 extra pints of ice cream, do you want to eat this and watch movies?
  2. I would love to teach you how to put oil in your car.
  3. I am in total support of you dyeing your hair at 2am.
  4. No, you don’t talk about him too much.
  5. I’m not sick of hearing the same story over and over of the last time you heard from him.
  6. That is a completely normal insecurity and I’m not judging you at all
