Let’s Get This Party Started

To be honest, I didn’t go to a single party this year. Unless you count Kenna’s birthday party of course. I’m not the party type. I don’t drink very often, and if I do I don’t get drunk. Partially because I have a relatively high tolerance, and partly because I don’t enjoy the feeling of being out of control.

I did go to a local Western club with some friends a couple of times. I found out I’m whiter than even the average country person. I can’t two step. I think about it way too much. The music was fun, the people were nice (except for the creep drunk old men) and in general it was a nice time out of the house.


All Come Together

This year I joined Daydreamz, and even though I already knew the vast majority of the members, the tone and community is unlike other message boards I’ve been part of. I really enjoy being part of it. I’ve also opened my self up to the sex toy review community, and that has been a blast. I’ve learned a lot about myself as a result, and have learned a lot about the industry.

In 2011 I want to connect with the animal and veterinary community in my area more. I’m going to start classes at the community college, and hopefully will get somewhere. I’d also like to find some playgroups, but I’m not sure that will happen. I’m not a very social person in real life, and I don’t really think I’d be able to identify very well with a playgroup full of married SAHM’s.

Stop it with the fun memes people

Yeah, I know I was doing that one meme, but I’m putting it on hold. I decided to start Reverb 10. I’ll start the other one backup once this one ends. Or I won’t because by then I should (hopefully) have a domain again.

To make sure this post isn’t completely pointless I’m going to flood you with cute Kenna pictures. Which hurts my heart a little because she’s losing her baby-ness and it’s going to be a long, long, long time before she gets a sibling.

All I Want For Christmas

There’s this meme going around, and apparently it’s been going on for the past few years and I have been living under a rock. But I’m going to participate because it’s like window shopping and you all want to know what I really want for Christmas right?

Step One
Make a post to your blog, tumblr, facebook, myspace, what have you. The important thing is to make sure these wishes are things you really want and that people can see the post. If you wish for real possible things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it’s your address or just an email address at which you can be contacted by potential wish-grantors.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your post, so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two
Surf around your friends list/blogroll/RSS feeds (or friends friends, or just random places ) to see who has posted their list. If you have a list be sure to leave it in my comments section so I can view your wishes! If you see a wish you can grant, and it’s in your heart to do so, make someone’s wish come true. Sometimes someone’s trash is another’s treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don’t want or a gift certificate you won’t use–or even know where you could get someone’s dream purebred Basset Hound for free–do it.

If you are able to help out with any of these you can either reach me here, twitter (@onlytuesdays) or via email (firekittenz [at] And Thank You and Merry Christmas!

  • Some jeans that just fit me properly. Looking for something of length, non saggy in the butt and approximately a size 8. Silver Jeans are fabulous. 🙂
  • Renewal of Flickr Pro. Because I have a kid and kids = lots of pictures that I just haven’t caught up with yet.
  • A car. A rolling hunk of metal that won’t die on me and preferably already has tags.
  • A job. Good Lord get me a job and get me out of here.
  • A necklace/ring of some sort with August’s birthstone. Something simple like this or this. Because Kenna broke mine, and ironically enough it’s her birthstone.
  • Giftcards are always welcome. 🙂


If you’d like your list to be linked comment below and leave me your link 🙂

Love is as strong as death;
Jealousy as cruel as the grave;
The coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.

Many waters cannot quench love,
neither can the floods drown it;
If a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would be utterly condemned.

Song of Solomon

I’m not sure you can define love, but that comes pretty close to what I believe about real lasting true love.

I think there is a difference between loving someone, or even being in love with someone, and having a true lasting relationship. Which isn’t to say you weren’t really in love with your ex boyfriend, girlfriend, or spouse, just that maybe you were missing that little intangible thing that just makes it work.

Real love, the kind that lasts a lifetime, is more than romantic love. It is knowing the person inside and out. It is having both good and bad days. It is being the best friend possible, and it is realizing you are both human. We aren’t perfect, so its ridiculous to think our partner should be as well.

In my ideal world Mr. Right doesnt come home with flowers for no reason, or surprise me with a candlelight dinner at home. He takes Kenna out when I feel like crap, does the dishes, and occasionally opens doors for me. He thinks I’m sexy in my sweats, or scrubs. He fights with me, and sometimes even puts his foot down.

Perfect and romantic is boring. Give me a real man and real love.

First love

First official day of the meme is “Your first love, in great detail”.

My first love was Zach. I was high school freshman, he was a junior. We were in band and JROTC together, and as a result spent a lot of time together. We became great friends fast. We didn’t start dating until the second semester and it was short lived, his dad didn’t like the age difference and the risk it had for Zach.

I think because we started out as such great friends and there was/is such a natural chemistry there, it made it easy to love him. We always explained it like two puzzle pieces that just fit, and that’s exactly how it felt. There has always been a connection there.

We fight hard, we don’t always see eye to eye, and sometimes we bring out the worst in each other. We are equally hard headed and we know each other well enough that we know exactly what button to push and when. We make mistakes, we get close, we push each other away, and we always come back. Eight years now, we have been doing this. We have been through a lot. His marriage and divorce, two deployments, my own relationships and problems, and we now have a daughter.

Now he wants to reconcile. At first I was completely closed off to it. I didn’t want to open myself up to him in that way again. It hurts to be let down by him. But the more I see things with Jay coming to an end, the more I see that Zach is capable of what I want and need in a partner. And maybe I have just been trying to make Jay into something he’s not.

You never forget your first.
