Blogging Fail

So here I am what day 3? And I've yet to post again. Whoops. How about some pictures instead?

Breaking the Silence

OK...

Well that sounded dramatic, however this story is not.  Ha!

I've taken a bit of a hiatus from blogging to get my life in order in my head first before I put it down...not that I have a ton of followers anyhow.  However, I have been reading in the background and leaving very few comments.

Things are good.  I quit my job just over 3 weeks ago and today is my first day unemployed.  I could go on about how the company sucked and how they took everything out of me emotionally and mentally, but I won't because reading that is not all that interesting.  The point is that I chose me.  I chose to be happy and although I don't have another job lined up and that terrifies me, I have to have faith that there are better things out there for me.

I put it out there, to the universe, to God that I'm ready for what's next.  I'm not a religious person, but I do believe in fate and timing and I believe that things happen for a reason.  Do I want to be unemployed? Hell no!  It scares the shit out of me, but I do have faith that the better thing that is waiting for me, is ready to me to find it.  Cross your fingers I find it soon, as I don't have the patience that I wish I did.

So, what did I do today? Slept in! ha!  Until 8am.  Applied for a ton of jobs, cleaned out the fridge top freezer, hung some things on the wall, cleaned the kitchen, did dishes and the laundry.  I need to run to the store to make supper for my fiance as well.

Oh, I guess if you're a follower that's new too.  R and I went on a holiday in September and got engaged. It was lovely and he is the reason that although I'm scared shitless about being unemployed, I feel better than I have in months.  Love is a funny thing.

So is stress...

So, join me won't you?  I hope to start blogging daily again - it's so therapeutic, I love it and let's face it, I don't have a lot going on these days.

One of these days...

...I'll get around to posting more often.  *Gasp* Maybe even weekly!
...I'll stop working overtime.  Every.  Single. Week.
...We'll have saved up enough money for a real vacation - hello sun and sandy beach!
...R's crazy Ex will realize I'm not the reason for their demise and she will accept that I love, take care of, support and provide for her daughter.  Willingly.
...I'll get my scrapbooking storage under control and cleaned up.
...I'll learn the best way to deal with inter-office conflicts.
...I'll finish my degree (in about 5 more years of night classes)
...I'll make time for me.

Shallow new love

Waterproof felt tip liquid eyeliner.  Seriously, where have you been all my life?

I've lived with smudged eye make up for years and now here you are!  I am in love!

I got contacts on Saturday.  They hurt my eyes and I feel like I can see less than with my glasses.  Boo.  I hope I get used to them soon, because seriously - no glasses and smudgeless eyeliner?  I'm a whole new me!

Back to School

My 3 week mini-holiday is over :(  Back to University today.  Thank God I don't do this full time!  Seriously.

I am ready to start this semester however.  I'm hoping I pick up a few more things that will help me get going with my job.  I did learn a bit last class, not as much as I'd like and as judging from the marks on the final and overall in the class average - many of my classmates probably feel the same.  I'm hoping I know someone in this class, but if not, meh I guess I'll meet some new people, which was something I had wanted.  Basically the reason I chose going to University over online classes.  That and I'm such a procrastinator with things I don't want to do that I'm afraid I would put it off for too long.

What have I been up to:

- Making Christmas cards for next year.  I was too busy with school work to get many done this year, so I'm preparing for next year.  That and I didn't get to play with nearly enough sparkly paper this year.

- I've joined a wellness program at work.  I'm determined this year.  I want to get an elliptical and R is on board with a  menu change.  Should be interesting in the beginning that's for sure!  It's so cliché though.

- I'm getting really sick of the staff in our other location not listening to me.  Is it really that tough when we ask you to do something?????  Join in or get out.  Ugh.

- I'm headed to that location to spend the day tomorrow - sure am not looking forward to that.  They are asses sometimes.

- I put winter tires on my SUV, studded winter tires, because winters here suck and guess what?  No snow since I put them on.  Haha go figure.

- I need to get my butt in gear and get divorced.  Like seriously.  I have the at home paperwork/kit.  I was waiting for the house to transfer and it did finally, but now I have to figure out how to file my divorce.  I would send it to my ex, but he would mess it up so it's up to me.  Reason number four billion and seventy six of why I left...

- Pet-peeve as of lately:  people who ignore and don't respond to emails!

Awe

video

I'm working from home today.  I've never done this before and it's a good thing I don't very often, haha.  Too many distractions!

Here is a short clip of my niece from Christmas time.  She started singing after hearing the song only twice.  She's 2.  Such a cutie.

Screw It

I'm not feeling very pro-work currently.  I actually have a case of the F...-it's.  You know, where you've reached the point where you just want to say F...it, let's go home and start vacation!

Instead of being grumpy and negative, I'll shower you (whoever actually reads this...hopefully there are still a few out there) with photos instead as an update.  


I'm super happy about Christmas this year.  Who know why?  Maybe because last year sucked and R and I are making up for it this year?  We have lights on the house, the tree and most of any other surface I could find is decorated.  The presents are wrapped under the tree - except one dammit!  We listen to Christmas music all the time.  I can't wait to see my family in a few short days.  This is even my desktop - woo hoo!  Check it out!



My new bangs.  Did I post this already?  I cut them myself.  Which I don't recommend if unlike me, you haven't been doing it for years.  And I have.  Literally.  Why pay $35 for a trim when you can cut your own bangs?!  Ha.

I've also been making Christmas cards like mad lately.  Here are a few of the ones I've been working on...













I want this for my mom.  And since I didn't get it done in time, it will be late for Christmas.  Oh well, the thought that counts right?  I do have other stuff for her.  


Our tree and Miss C.  She was told not to touch the tree, so she drug her chair this close so she could get a good look, but not touch.  Haha, it was hilarious.


The Bass Pro trip that never amounted to anything.  We went for Santa photos, but the wind was blowing so bad it blew out a window in Santa's workshop.  That was the closest we got to Santa this year.  Damn.  I'm not even sure we'll get her there now.  Who wants to go on December 24th?  Not this lady.  Either way Miss C and I had fun.  She's such a poser.


My other kids.  Well my sister's kids.  Can't. Wait. To. See. Them!  Ugh only a few more days.  I miss them so much.  Such cuties.


My new fave thing to do? Snap pics with my iphone of stuff that either I want or R tells me he wants.  That way I generally remember where it is and exactly what (more for him) that he wanted for Christmas.  It worked super well.  I want this book.  I've read the others by her and I loved them.  There is one that was a movie not long ago, Something Borrowed I think....


Now that you've been inundated with pictures do you feel more festive?  If so, great, just doing my civic duty.  If not, what the hell?  Christmas is this close!  Get festive dammit!  :)

Merry  Christmas!
