with my daughter's help

Scene: Me cooking like mad for our 2 Thanksgiving meals tomorrow (one with his family, one with mine)

Husband: You know, you’re working really hard… How about we go out for dinner?
Me: Well, okay. I was planning on just ordering a pizza, but that works too.
Husband: I just thought you might like to get out of the house for a while.
Me: Sounds good. But the kids both need a bath first.
Husband: Okay.

What actually proceeds to happen over the course of the day:

  • I make sure both children have a bath.
  • I help my daughter with her hair. (It’s naturally curly & requires a lot of work.)
  • Talk to my dad on the phone to touch base about lunch tomorrow.
  • Get mail from mailbox.
  • Let dog in and out half a dozen times.

All while I simultaneously:

  • Make 4 pumpkin pies.
  • Boil 1 dozen eggs.
  • Make 3 batches of yeast rolls from scratch. (and I’m still making more!)
  • Peel 5 lbs of potatoes.
  • Wash dishes. (No, I don’t have a dishwasher. *sadface*)

What he proceeds to do:

  • Play video games until he passes out on the couch.

Ugh! Now I know that I’ll also have to drive us to the restaurant and back. And when I get home, tuck both kids into bed… and then cook some more. *sigh* My life would have been so much easier if we had just ordered the pizza. But, noooooo….. can’t have that.

Sorry… I just needed to rant my first world problems there for a bit.

please do one of Washington and Alfred oh gracious one

I don’t usually take requests but. It’s the revolutionary war. I have to.

Basically, Washington had like 50+ dogs, and they were named stuff like “Sweet Lips” or “Mopsey” or “Drunkard”.

When I was born, my Grampy gave me the nickname “Penny”. Penny is me in my purest, most authentic form. On July 19th 2012, I lost my brother Miyagi to an inoperable brain tumor. He was 26. My brother and I were very close. We were only 2 years apart. I never thought of him as a separate person, but an extension of myself. He was my reflection. In his presence I was confident and always so sure… I was Penny. Since that day I have been incomplete, losing all direction and sense of self. Since that day I have been lost trying to find him… trying to find my way back to my self… back to Penny. I turn to writing as my form of therapy, but it’s never quite enough. I released 2 projects since then, but I wasn’t quite myself. I try to find my brother’s love in other men, but they never can compare. I try to get closer to my brother by doing different drugs, hoping that if I get high enough I can reach him, but they only take me further away. I distract myself with work, which buys me things I wish I could share with him. I distract myself with work, which causes stress I wish he were here to help me with. The presence of my daughter, my siblings, my parents… only make his absence more apparent. And so, I find myself taking trips, trying to escape any person, place or thing that is too familiar. Physical trips by car, by plane… Mental trips with controlled substances… Trips in solitude in hopes that the quiet will bring me and my brother back together. Through out these travels I’ve been keeping a record of my dreams, feelings and experiences in notebooks. I turned these notebooks into a MAP. a Movie (TRIP short film), an Album (TRIP) and a Poetry book (2fish) This map has been helping me navigate through my suffering, uncovering the righteous path that has been carved out before and for me… Helping me identify my pain and my mistakes so that I can move forward and reach my full potential and find the light at the end of the tunnel… My personal “hero’s journey". and although I am not there yet… I know I’m getting closer. This map was made by me, for me… but I feel obligated to share because I know that I am not alone in my suffering. If there’s one thing I’m sure of it’s that every single person on this planet is suffering. Not a single soul in this world is immune to the pain of losing someone they love. The reality of this life is, at some point we will all lose someone we love. In sharing this MAP, I hope to inspire others to be more present in the lives of the people they love. I hope this MAP encourages honesty, empathy and compassion. In sharing this MAP, I hope to inspire others to share their own mistakes, imperfections and fears… because I believe in doing so we can understand each other better and realize we are more alike than different. In sharing this MAP, I hope to inspire others to share their grief and pain because I believe suffering can be alleviated when we understand we are not going through any of it alone. - Jhené Aiko Efuru “Penny” Chilombo

“it’s the eyes” moodboard, aka the “while pidge is getting further and further in her search for her family, she’s essentially chasing scraps of information around the entire universe, and she just found someone who fairly recently made contact with her brother who could provide her with more information or at least tell her if he’s okay, only to watch that person die in front of her, forcing her to deal with both the fact that her brother has eluded her yet again and the increased weight on her shoulders as a defender of the universe who just failed to save someone” moodboard

MON-EL APPRECIATION WEEK: day 5
favourite hero moment

Rota Cadash being super into the idea of being the Herald of Andraste/part of the Inquisition.

Once when I worked at Gollar Deneral, this mom and her two daughters, around 6 and 9, came in and were shopping. The youngest stayed with her mom while the older walked around by herself. Our office was behind the register in the corner, and as I started to walk back there, I looked down the aisle and saw this man had the older girl cornered in the back corner of the store talking to her, way too closely.

I didn’t see that man walk in with them, but I didn’t want to offend him if it was her dad and he had walked in after them but I just didn’t see him. But something felt off, and I didn’t like it. So I quickly ran down the aisles until I found the mom, and asked if she was there with a man, and when she said no I told her there was a man in the back corner talking to her daughter. She ran back there, and grabbed her, then came up to checkout.

The daughter kept saying “he just wanted my help picking out vitamins!” (what grown man asks a 9 year old for help with vitamins???) A few seconds after they got up to the register, the man walks up behind them. The mom looked terrified. He kept trying to talk to the girls, and the mom put herself in between her daughters and the man and said “don’t talk to strangers”. He turned around and grabbed a candy bar, and I leaned over and whispered to her “I’ll distract him while you get the girls in the car and leave”. 

She finished paying and quickly drug the girls out the door as the man tried to keep talking to them and say bye to them. I rang his stuff up, and when he went to pay with his card, I would hit cancel, and tell him it was having trouble reading his card, until I saw the mom drive away. 

I don’t know if he had any bad intentions, but I’ve learned to listen to my gut when something doesn’t seem right, and the mom also obviously didn’t feel comfortable about the situation. 

a very self indulgent sketch to celebrate hitting my first thousand followers on this blog _(:3」∠)_
