Okay, so... I spent most of the day in bed today. Bad Nova. This morning, when I woke up, my back and my neck were pretty messed up. I assume I slept on a rock, or was teleported to an alternate dimension wherein my mattress was made of pointy sticks. In any case, it's been… Continue reading 229. How to… give yourself a break.
So, Christmas with the family was a little more interesting than I care to detail here, but... I do have a story time to share with you all. See, in the process of my move, I mega-busted my keyboard and found out that the warranty was poof. I then spent the last several weeks longingly… Continue reading 228. How to… start the new year off right.
Y'all... there is not enough coffee in the entire state this morning. Last night was my first night in the house dealing with "oh shit" storms. In Nova-land, I categorize storms in three ways: Level 1 - "Oh, meh." - A minor inconvenience. Sugar dissolves in water, after all. Level 2 - "Oh, my!" -… Continue reading 227. How to… wake up.
I know. It's been a long time since last!blog. But guys... Guys... being a new homeowner has been simultaneously the most awesome and the most exhausting thing I have ever experienced.

You guys, tonight or tomorrow (not sure which) is going to be my first official night in my new house. I don't know how we're going to do it, but that's the plan.

It's going to be okay. I'm glad I've got some awesome peoples in my life to help keep me grounded… Continue reading 224. How to… take a deep breath…again.
'Tis the season, y'all. First of all, I know it's been almost a month since I've updated my blog. Sorry I suck. It's been a bit busy in the real world and things have been hectic, to say the least. I've been dealing with doctors and medical stuff and everything in between. And... I close… Continue reading 223. How to… survive the dark stuff.
At some point, y'all are going to have to pry all my Halloween stuff out of my cold, dead fingers. I am loving it. This is my favorite time of year for so many reasons, but in large part because you get to see the darker side of creativity on Second Life. It's fascinating (and… Continue reading 222. How to… vanquish the depression monster.
Oh, my gosh, you guys. If all the stars align and nothing explodes and there is literally nothing else crazy that happens, I close on my first house in like nine days. Nine. Days. My house. A house of my own. With four walls and a roof and a yard. In a neighborhood. With kids… Continue reading 221. How to… see through the darkness.
It's my biiiiiiiiiiiirthday. I will be spending it drinking mass quantities of delicious hot cocoa, singing karaoke into my hair brush, and... trying to survive dinner with my family without mention of politics, the gay agenda, or how things should be exactly the same as they were fifty years ago. I might need a little… Continue reading 220. How to… celebrate you!
