I Have To At Least Cover My Birthday....

First of all, I got music videos downloaded and everything backed up before leaving with Grandpa last I wrote. Spent Wednesday playing with the kids.

Thanksgiving went well on Thursday. Never went to Dad's house because DJ took me straight to Aunt Steffs without having me get clothes first. BUT Aunt Steff's house was fun. Watched Modern Family and the Chrisley family, played at the playground with the kids, ate good food, played with the kids some more. Dad says he hopes to see me soon and bring me a used tablet as my birthday present. Friday was a normal day and I played a lot and bonded with the kids.

That night, since Mom is moving and got rid of the furniture, I laid on a coffee tabel covered in cardboard and a leopard fleece blanket to watch Burn Notice with Mom's Wifi hotspot.

Then SKYLA wanted up, with pleading eyes, and she took up about half of that small space. I dealt with it a bit.

I went to sleep at a decent hour and shared a twin bed with Aaliyah and two dogs. Woke up around 2 a.m. and stepped in a giant dog puddle because I didn't let them out late enough. Then I couldn't sleep.

I had laid out a pair of sweats to visit Uncle Pat from the night before and my shoes were by the front door. When I got up, Maranda had cleaned the whole house and moved things, including my shoes...one of which was missing. The pants were missing too and I was searching for those. Found them under Mom's bed.

We went to the prison and got there at 8 a.m. and had a six and a half hour visit. P.S. My shoes I borrowed from Mom set off the metal detector but no biggie. ANYWAY.

At one point there was this raccoon climbing in and out of the tree and every time the guards came close, he'd scurry back up there. Finally, they trapped him with a garbage can and a round of applause ensued.

I had some good boneless chicken wings, snickers, a coke, and cheetos.

Also, Mom, Grandpa, and Johnny (Mom's friend) had root beers that were luring honey bees. One came down and drank some off the can as we watched, meanwhile towards the end (when there were three) I refused to be near the table with them around.

I can be happy he's getting out in a couple weeks. I keep praying he'll re-enter society successfully after ten years and stay out of trouble. God help us all.

After leaving, Mom took me to get two pairs of new sandals from the manicure place, then the five and under store she and Jen raved about and their hype was justified.

I got new birthday gifts (pastels, a tumbler with fake ice in the walls, cork board, and socks) before we headed to a parking lot as Mom waited on her friend for Bingo. Then I thrift shopped, finishing off my Christmas list.

Then Grandpa took me to get a cake. I picked out a simple one and the lady was nervous to write on it, saying she was the only one there and just the decorator. I didn't even ask for my name considering that and just asked for a simple 'Happy Birthday.' Every year, as we know, I must have a cake for my birthday if nothing else, no matter my age. I went to Mom's, shared cake, and left.

I got home to find nobody home, then Rob and April came back from grocery shopping. I got an awesome gift from Rob:
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children: The Graphic Novel

I enjoyed it thoroughly yesterday, though it left off at a cliffhanger and now I need to sequel. lol.

We had a bit of Vodka, I felt sick and went to bed, avoiding my pills out of necessity.

The next day I went dollar store shopping and bought stocking stuffers, came home, and played Secondlife until 4 p.m. Then we went to April's Mom's to help decorate the tree until around 7-8 p.m. We came home. I was wiped. Went to bed.

Today I played on Secondlife and did a little creating. All. Caught. Up.

P.S. My digestion has not gone well today, I'm tired, legs hurt, my throat has been scratchy, and I'm a little hungry.  It's 6:00 p.m. by the way, lol.

The Official Blog Hiatus Announement.

11:45 a.m. 

6-7 years is a long time to be keeping regular journals, like I have been, and I feel like it's time to let myself go of the obligation to be a daily journal writer for now. Perhaps when it comes to writing life's most major events, I'll get back to you but for now...I'm just not up for it.

I started 'Lost'  on Netflix a few days ago and have to wait for April and I to watch it now that we're caught up together. Still watching Burn Notice, too. Need to finish Scrubs.

I'm all packed. Thanksgiving is tomorrow. I'm going to Aunt Steff's, God Willing, Then Dad's for most of the weekend. THEN Mom's, with gas money April got me to get home from there.

My 27th birthday is in three days and I've finally reached that strange age where it's not as a big deal as it used to be anymore. 

I've been spending my week making almost several things a day on Secondlife, too many to name.

STILL have not updated my blurb journal but hope to soon. 

I'm hoping Instagram export will work today. Oi Vey.Perhaps now I can get pictures and vids organized, and whatnot. 


2:28 p.m.

Got my Instagram stuff downloaded.

FINALLY after like half a year, I am making the long process of moving photos from April's computer, to mine, but it's taking a few hours. Pray God its done before I get picked up. Also deleted my JRM folder since I gotta come off the old obsession thing. Feels alright. Bye. God bless, Jesus loves, lives, saves!

4:08 p.m. Backed up well and now downloading some Youtube faves since Mom has no net at the house. :D Leaving VERY sooonnn!!

Another Five Days Later

10:19 a.m. Started an Advent Calender on SL and have been making products for it. That's what I've been doing. I didn't end up writing a new letter 2010 self as my past self said I won't need to, and can do it whenever. So yeah....unless Jen is ACTUALLY coming today since she postponed a couple days last time, then I can be expecting to watch Harmony. P.S. Thinking of staying here for the Holidays, Christmas, that is. ^^ Gotta be able to keep up on that advent calendar.

Another Five Days Since I Wrote.

11:29 a.m. It used to be that I would write at least once a day, now it's more like once a week. Eep. Sorry. Two more days until I answer the 'five year' letter, in short to call it and I need to hurry up and get my entires up to date on both my website AND blogger before then, so I can properly answer it the way I've wanted to for five years now.

Lately, again this week, my focus has been on the shop and getting it out there, and creating new items here and there. Youtube and Netflix marathons, taking a few minutes to go outside now and then....and at one point trying to wrap presents and frustrating myself out of it...

...because Donny knocked as soon as I began. You know him, knock, and loudly, and frequently, with determination until someone answers rather than shrugging and coming back later like others do. Oi. I forgive but I still wish it wouldn't keep happening.

Then I couldn't wrap properly. Still got that on my to-do list as well. I've been keeping up on my medications. The drowsiness is there occasionally but it is less frequent now. My room is definitely a big mess right now. Another thing on my to-do list.

I went over my prim limit temporarily yesterday but at least it got fixed. :)

Rob also gave me charger cords! YAY! So now I can charge April's phone and my mp3 player as well. 

12:11 p.m. It was quick to upload my past entries from the middle of October. MOST unfortunately, the site I use to download my Instagram photos broke on me so I can't add them right now. And I feel it's best to wait until I CAN download my Instagram files before adding this to my long awaited blurb book. 

ON the plus side, I'm no longer required of myself to add things to wordpad on my netbook since I'm up to date and can now, for the first time in weeks, get back to writing almost anywhere, almost anytime, directly on my blogger account. WOOT!

1:35 p.m. Made some macaroni and sausage, after watching an Eh Bee marathon and now watching Modern Family. Calming down a bit today...

3:11 Played Secondlife, got unbanned from a group I had no idea why I was banned from, and lazied the hours away. Oi vey.

It's Been Almost A Week.

4:26 p.m. I've been busy all week, so let me fill you in. With the combined help of Ruby, Rob, and April, I finally have an inworld store on Secondlife. I've spent this week adding inventory, decorating, managing, etc. So it's just the beginning. Also, creating a few things here and there as well.

Rob got me an awesome Tumbler for my early birthday gift which is awesome! It has blue camo-ish look with a 'rhinestone' beaded center. I love that thing. I've been wanting an actual tumbler for ages now so it really means a lot.

I made thanksgiving plans to go spend a few days with my Dad at his house for Thanksgiving. I never went over to Mom's on November 4th like I thought was going. to happen.

Still have not added entries to either my blog or my blurb book yet, which needs to be done at some point. Like I said, I've been heavily focused on Secondlife this week. Wrapping my Christmas gifts is also on my to-do list. Still need to get something for DJ and Maranda, then maybe my list is complete. Also, been quite a bit drowsy a lot as taking my anti-anxiety/anti-depressant medication goes on. I've been dying to write though...just needed to get up the motivation to do it.

Add in Netflix, Hulu, and hanging out with April and Rob, and of course, a lot of sleeping, and a few times dreaming of JRM and Mara, and you have my free time. God be with me. We also did a major grocery shopping trip yesterday with food stamps, so that was great. :D Rob and I went with Rick, April cared for her Mom.

A guy who I knew in my childhood passed away a couple days ago named Paul Wooten. He was a bully to me as a kid. I forgave him, even though we never reconnected in any way. May he rest in peace, in Jesus name, Amen. Prayers for his family as well. :)

Hissy is in a but of a hissing mood....probably cause of all the kittens in here. Too bad. She was so nice earlier.

On a random note, this whole day feels like an evening....just all wound down...a bit lazy and boring. Aside from working on it a little this morning, I'm taking the first real break from my store I've had all week. VERY happy with it. That is all for now. If I got more to say, I will come up with...like the fact that mema offered me all her old Christmas decorations and we accepted. :D My computer is charging, my room is overrun by cats, yada, yada. Exactly one week until I respond to that letter from my past self five years ago. God only knows what it will say.....

10:02 p.m. Went shopping for Christmas decor for my SL inworld shop, then checked the news. Bed time....

9:21 p.m. After hanging out with Rob, I made a new dress for Secondlife. :D Near broke on that site now but I shall be alright lol.

It's Been A Little While...

2:45 p.m. I haven't written in five days but thankfully, the week is easily summed up. We're been grocery shopping and that went well. I put out a large amount of stuff on secondlife, I've been on a normal sleep schedule and aniti-anxiety/anti-despressive medication since I got home. Home has been well. Netflix and Youtube Marathons, Hanging out with April now and then, Pinterest, Flight Rising, the usual etc.

I didn't spend Halloween at Mom's. Instead, I hung out with friends and April on the porch, capturing a smile on camera for the first time....a real smile...in a long time.

I haven't been sewing Barbie clothes since I got back into Secondlife creating.

I have not updated my blog in weeks, or my physical journal in even longer. Still need to get back to reading all my journals like I planned before going to Mom's. I am broke as well, lol, already.

Rob's Mom and her fiance visited yesterday and I got working on a craft for April's Christmas gift, but it has not gone well. I still have the other gifts I've bought but they just need wrapping, of course.

Donny has visited quite a few times today, and he is arriving earlier and earlier in the morning every day O.O.

I get answer that letter to myself, from five years ago, on the 15th (less than two weeks from now) and though her letter was a short one, I hope I'll have a lot to say about how life has gone so far.

My computer is dying on it's battery and I need to let it charge, hopefully while I nap. Laundry desperately needs to be done. -_- That's all I can say for now.

7:34 p.m. Got my laundry done and had another thoughty2 marathon until April came home. Carlo is missing. I listened to Pandora and surfed for future SL projects. :) Oh, and I had pizza and chocolate milk. Nothing else to report there besides the fact that April is worried out of her mind.

EDIT: I played on Secondlife and Carlo was eventually found by Rob....Carlo was chasing a cat.
