I have been pretty MIA recently. My bad, yall!! Elli had her third birthday three days ago. I bought her cake this year because, believe it or not, I’m really over the cake thing. I did it, I rocked it, and now I’m done with it. This is the general theme of my life — I’m really into something until I achieve some sort of sublime all-knowing and then I drop it like hot donkey doodee.
Elli had a great birthday. She got some gifts from mommy and daddy, her great aunt, and her grandpa Dave. I’m really disappointed in the lack of acknowledgment from relatives, but whatever. Eleanor loved her cake though and, before we even sang happy birthday, she had the candles blown out and her face in the cake lol. My kid! We hung out pretty much all day, played with toys, I got some chores done, and we just really enjoyed being together.
Three days before Elli’s birthday, I went to school and applied for — was accepted for — graduation! It’s simply an associate’s degree, but it’s a degree nonetheless. I managed to achieve this WHILE raising a baby. So, anyone who thinks they’re better than me, suck a duck. (That’s primarily to relatives.) Just this passed weekend, a relative of mine got super drunk and started talking about everyone lol. Knowing that these condescending little twats have issues in and of themselves is super delicious. And karma sucks.
I also enrolled in a web developer bootcamp so that I can get a certificate as proof that I know what I’m doing, sort of, and will use it to go hand-in-hand with my stupid degree.
Big things have been happening in the Dunbar household. It’s pretty weird. I wonder when that other shoe will drop….
