Social “Distancing”

I have no clue where that phrase was coined, but I suppose it’s apt. Quarantine, at least if you are not sick, is too strong a word. Yes, you can go out- if you are smart. My husband and I plan to go out in the late evening- less people- should we need anything, […]


I forgot my domain and hosting was up for renewal and had to debate on whether or not I’d continue to pay. In the end, I paid it because while I may not post often, I do like my little corner of the internet. And that’s what’s important.

So mostly I’ve been just surviving. […]

Warm weather

I think I gave up trying to post in the winter. Honestly, it’s just hard, there’s nothing exciting or even worth talking about during the winter. HALP I AM TRAPPED INDOORS just doesn’t make a good post over and over again.

But the warm weather is here, and with it brings lots of things to […]


There’s a nasty little stomach bug going around the house. All three kids got it, and at least one was the cause of poor FatChocoboMom having to steam clean her rugs. Ah, the joys of parenthood. I’m also on some antibiotics for an infection, which has left my stomach feeling quite queasy. Today is the […]

The trouble with the Square Enix Store

This is what I wanted. This is what I ordered. On October 25th. Unlike previous orders, wherein the money was deducted when the product was actually shipped, the money was taken right away.


December 7th. Notification of shipping. YAY!

Even at this moment, the shipping tracking says the same thing. “A UPS shipping […]

The Biggest Question

So why weight loss surgery? I mean, come on Fat Chocobo Mom, eat less! Workout more! It’s.just.that.simple!!

To be honest, that is one of the dumbest statement I’ve ever heard. If eating less and working out worked for everyone, obesity wouldn’t be the problem it is. New diets would be created every 15 days, and […]

Welcome to 2017

Happy New Year!

New year, New life. New year, New me. Isn’t that what New Year’s resolutions are? Well, it was kind of a secret until now (though, not really…more like I just didn’t talk about it anyone and everyone), but I’ve actually been working on some pretty big changes in my life since the […]

Summer Vacation

Yes, it’s been like…ages! I’m still here, but it’s not big surprise that life takes over and blogging frankly gets put on the back burner. I’m not one of those super awesome bloggers that get paid! I did however, change the theme and look of the blog, did a few updates here and there, and […]


April has been awful. Like, seriously, it’s been cold, and windy, and I’m almost positive we had more snow in April then we did December-March combined. That may or may not be an exaggeration. I’ve been looking at my “On this Day” posts on Facebook every day, as well as old blog posts, and getting […]

Back to my dungeon! I mean basement…

My new stove is coming on Saturday! I’m very excited, particularly since we got a good deal (I think…) So my kitchen is almost complete, with just the odd touch here and there to make things more simplified and organized. Which means…

Back to the basement.

Yes, that was the sound of me screaming in […]
