A Whole Lot of Changes

Okay, I think it’s time that I explain myself. For the past few months, I have done a terrible job keeping up with most aspects of my life and, unfortunately, this blog fell into that category. I think it’s time to come clean about it and to do so, I want to tell you a story. In late 2012, I returned from my Peace Corps Ukraine life and set out to find myself a job to do. In what I still deem to be record Continue reading →

Gas Prices Are Low and I have the Travel Bug

So there’s a curious thing going on lately with gas prices and I’m not going to complain. My guesses is that it has to do with me getting my “old person” ID back in November. The state of Wisconsin issues driver’s licenses in the vertical format if you’re under 21 years old. Assuming you don’t lose your license or have to get a new license for some reason, the license needs to be renewed when you turn 27 (or after some time frame) and then Continue reading →

How to Make Friends

I don’t know if I’ve talked about this on here before–I know I’ve talked about it with a handful of different people–but, how do you make friends? Like, I legitimately want to know.  As far as I can remember, I’ve made friends when I’m in places where other people are trying to make friends en-masse. Like the first day of kindergarten, middle school, high school. The first week of college. Peace Corps. I cannot think of any friends I’ve made outside of these places, none Continue reading →

Frozen Fox, I’m Still Walking

The new year came in and it came with a nice deep freeze and snow (Editor’s Note: Danny hates cold and snow and often ponders why he still lives in Wisconsin where both are abundant). Today, I had to make a split second decision, which I outsourced to a coworker with a simple, “Yes or no?” question. The question was, do I brave the cold and go for my walk? The answer was yes. So, despite the 0º F when I left for my lunchtime Continue reading →

2014 Year in Review

I want to write about my year in review. Sometimes these posts get pretty long and detailed. I’m going to try to only focus on only one to a few details from each month. Bear with me. 2014 Year in Review In January, I travelled West. Ellie and I went to Arizona to celebrate a year of our wonderful relationship. It touched on only the beginning of a great American journey I want to take over the course of my lifetime. In February, I got Continue reading →

A Few Things and Wishing You a Happy Holidays

Just a few things I want to touch on before the holidays are upon us.  I’ve been terrible at posting the past few months. I went strong for the majority of the year, then I just crashed and I’m not entirely sure why. I plan on improving on this in the new year. The Winter Solstice has passed. If you’re like me, then you also are excited because now the days get longer. Where I’m at in Wisconsin, short gray days are rather depressing. Plus, Continue reading →

Google Autocomplete Hates Moms

Technology is great, but I’m starting to wonder if it really knows what it’s doing. It’s starting to worry me, the kind of things that are popping up. Google autocomplete on my phone is being much more violent and aggressive towards mothers than it should be. Are a lot of people actually in need of reminders for this? Google, stop hating on mommas.

27 Things About Turning 27

I turned 27 a couple of weeks ago, so I decided to write-up a list of 27 things that went through my head recently about turning 27. I had to get a new driver’s license because the one I got at 18 expired. It’s something you think is always a few years out until you get the card in the mail saying you need to renew. Then it hits you. If I was my parents at my age, I’d have a 2-year-old, a 3-year-old, and a Continue reading →

Marley After the Vet

Marley is all fixed up now. She recovered rather nicely and I’m making sizable dents in the amount I owe for the procedure. Fun fact, I was quote anywhere from $450-$950 for her procedure depending on how many teeth were pulled and other work that might need to be done. I feared the worst. The actual cost was $510 and I was more than relieved at the time of checkout. The procedure took out 14 of her teeth and they cleaned the remaining 10. Her Continue reading →

Cat Dental Procedure for Marley

Marley is currently under the knife!  After I had taken Marley in to get checked up after she pooped some blood, the vet was harassing me for not getting her mouth fixed up sooner. I told her that it was too expensive for me to pay all at once (they don’t offer payment plans). She suggested that I look into getting a Care Credit card. Care Credit is a card that can be used for medical, health, beauty, and veterinary charges as long as the Continue reading →
