Ask me anything   About me   

Hi, I'm Aimee! It's so good to meet you. I spend my time reading too many words, worrying over things that don't matter, running in the awkward hours, and spending too much of my time in the kitchen. Sometimes I'm forgetful and selfish and try too hard to make everyone around me happy. Here you'll find me trying to daily live in hope and grace.

We are having thunderstorms today, which means I have been comforting my 60lb infant for an hour and he won’t leave my lap.

He’s in for a rude awakening when I have to pee.

Go Royals!

Gotta admit that was one heck of a fighting game.

And thank you Oakland for getting sloppy at the end.

I was about to make a post about how Missouri doesn’t really want another sports fan…

but then the royals got some runs and we’ve got a pretty intense 9th inning. 

I’ll never convert to the chiefs for football, though. Bengals for life!

The medical clinic patient services rep position I initially wanted more than anything finally called me back. And want to make an offer. But I’ve already accepted an offer at the school. I guess it doesn’t hurt to call back and see what they are willing to pay.

Long term I would love this job a lot more than the one at the school. However, I know I would be just fine in the position at the school and like it just fine.

Such an odd predicament to be in. To have multiple people who want me to work for them, instead of fighting for any position out there just to have an income. And I have no idea what to choose. I guess a lot hinges on what the patient services are willing to pay me. Especially because it’s a position I could really happily stay for many years.

I guess I have some thinking to do.

On a tastier note, the moussaka was amazing yesterday. Everyone loved it, even the 6 yr old nephew. Absolutely no leftovers. I love cooking. And I am loving having people to cook for.

But really.  I adore this princess.  Oma (Rasputin’s mom) has made her a couch dog. Spoiled miss penny.

Met more of Rasputin’s extended family. His aunt some how made me take home half a cake?

Apparently we were exhausted because we got home and napped for two hours. Then he made me work out.

Also, we are visiting his mom this weekend (because we are still homeless for all intents and purposes, and he hasn’t seen much of his mama in several years, so it works out) and trying to have adult time in her house makes me feel like a teenager sneaking around all over again.

I’m not saying I dislike it.

It’s a night of feeling just really overwhelmed. It’s weird because there’s a lot of positive things going on right now.

But in the quiet moments that sadness just creeps over me. And I can’t quite placr what it is exactly that’s causing it.

So now comes my next quest: how does one make friends in a completely new environment?

It’s fun to see how being reckless has worked out. I moved on a whim to a state I had never stepped foot in.

And wound up with an amazing job with better pay and benefits than my previous position, as well as the opportunity to attain my masters for basically free.

Missouri is beautiful. Humid, but beautiful. This has been such a lesson in not over stressing myself. Everything works out in the end.

Woohoo completed my background check for my new job! 

Crossing my fingers it doesn’t take forever to come back (not because I have a criminal record, but because Missouri is my 3rd state I’ve lived in). 

I am officially calling myself on vacation as of right now.

Rasputin and I are going to watch his nephews final soccer game on Saturday…which is mostly an excuse for his family to get together afterwards and drink classy brunch cocktails….which I think is awesome.

I’m feeling like I should probably definitely make some pumpkin cinnamon rolls with maple cream cheese frosting as my contribution.

Side note: it’s weird for me to be around a family that is so functional and supportive. And makes me all the more aware how dysfunctional and screwed my childhood was.
