So with Facebook and Instagram both going down for many hours yesterday it reminded me that I need to pay more attention to this little ole piece of the world. I used to blog with so much more frequently when Ian was smaller, I had a mommy blog. It is back in the archives on this site. I enjoyed that but it was not the fun enjoyable blogging of my college days. Those are not archived here, I don’t even know if they still exist they were on live journal, xanga, and myspace(those were the days). I don’t think I will blog much about my family as the boys are older and they have voice about what they want on the internet. Our lives are drastically different then they were even 3 years ago at this point. Casey was getting ready to leave the army and we were preparing to move back to Texas. Now we own our own home, have 2 reliable cars (we had two but lets just say car two was iffy for the first bit once we were back here.
Mental health wise I am the best shape I think I have ever been, there is a lot of factors to this. Some I can discuss publicly; like a great medication cocktail, amazing husband and friends, and less stress. Then there is something I can’t discuss public but if you have known me most of the time I have been active on twitter (I bet you can guess what it is).
Maybe I can talk about our Dungeons and Dragons campaigns here? Would that interest anyone? I can delve more into what is going on and who characters are and such. I am only in two active campaigns now; I play in a bi weekly Friday night game and a bi weekly Thursday game. I also play a once a month RPG based in the Dresden Files universe. It is a Fate based game, we have yet to have combat it is heavy on role playing. It has helped me role playing so much.
I still love planners, I can always write about them.
I guess it isn’t for a lack of content that I haven’t been writing but um a lack of trying. Oops, I am going to try and be better.
I went to Fan Expo Dallas in April, I finally found my memory card with the pictures and thought I would share.
It was a good time, with friends. Enjoyed the panels and cos players, Can’t wait to go next year.
It has been awhile since I touched either this site or youtube. I finally posted a blog. Hopefully I will be back here soon.
A day in the life
So I am vlogging again, I really missed it. So let’s see how this goes. Check out yesterday:
If you have time to Lean
Tomorrow (which is today) will have a mental health update on the last 5 months. So stay tuned.
I love reading, I have been reading more comics and graphic novels lately then I have been actual books. It still counts I am reading. What have you been reading? Things that I have really enjoyed reading right now are:
So far I am really enjoying it more then the show. I am about half through the first compendium. The character development is way better then the show. Abby and Gabe lent me the first the 2 to read and it is taking me a while but I am getting there.
I really like the theory behind this book and anybody being able to get their house clean in manageable chunks of time. No marathon cleaning here and it encourages you to never give up even if you back track a bit.
Things I want to read:
I really enjoy her YouTube Videos, So I think having her method in which I learn the best would be awesome. I also have a stack of Graphic Novels, I want to read. It is just sitting down to read them. I will share more in the next couple week. Tell me what your reading?

I never thought this would happen but one of my first loves and I are breaking up and I will say it is probably for the best. Napping, I will miss you but I don’t know how see you in moderation. I even set alarms and I turn them off and end up making a hour long nap 3 hours long. That doesn’t work for anyone in my house. So bye bye old friend, hopefully I can accomplish more in the hours I won’t be napping.
I am not talking so much about our family budget though to be honest we could be better.
I get $100 a month to spend how I please and I swear that it is gone in like a day and I have no Fucking clue how. And then I am taking money out from our family budget and all that does is hurt my family. You may say just stop spending but sometimes it isn’t that easy, I need to relearn my spending habits and I don’t know where to start? I am an impulse shopper and I know that needs to change. Also I have cancelled all beauty subscriptions even though I did that a while back to be honest. And that saves me like $30 a month and I am not getting over whelmed with beauty crap I won’t use. I want to be able to save some of it so that when I want something a little more ridiculous that I have the money to do it. So tell me how to work on impulse spending and internet spending, I am also the queen of checking out before I have even realize it.
I bought this little camcorder of Amazon last year, and I don’t know why. Wait strike that I do know why, I wanted to make youtube videos. Well I guess I was naive thinking a camera under a $100 would work well. I didn’t make as many videos as I hopes but the last couple I have made I noticed how much the quality had gone down hill. So after talking with C and being shut down on buying another camera, I talk about how I struggle with money here. And being mad for a couple of days, and a little research. Funny how when C suggest something no that will never work. I realized I a spoiled but alas that I have an Iphone 7 Plus with the big memory. Which means while it might not be perfect it will defiantly meet my needs. So wish me luck on this new adventure.
