I`m on DressLily adding everything I want to the cart. I`m up to $350. - Mood:Good
Tuesday May 16 20179:37:17 PM |
I will end up buying... probably nothing. I don't have that kind of money to burn. And i can't pick just 1 or 2.

I kinda wanna post a pic of everything I want. But really. No one cares.

Still training newbies at work. There are 2 of us who know what we are doing. There are about 10 of them. 7 new people and 3 people who've been there awhile and should know what they are doing, but don't. Its.. chaotic.
I find myself in a position of authority and its.. enlightening. I'm learning about me. And what kind of supervisor/teacher I am.

I think i'm in a manic/ depressive rollercoaster. Fun times. Its not too high and low though.

If i get bored enough I am totally posting pictures of everything I want.

I have freshly whipped cream and I don`t know what to do with it - Mood:Good
Sunday May 14 20175:49:39 PM |
I made brownies, then made ganache fudge sauce, then made a tub of freshly whipped cream. I brought the brownies topped with fudge to work. And half the whipped cream.

I have half the whipped cream left. I don't know what to put it on though. I don't really wanna bake anything else. Only thing i can think of for whipped cream is pumpkin pie and brownies.

I guess I don't mind making something. But i don't wanna make a whole batch of anything.

I need a friend yall. - Mood:Good
Friday May 12 201711:21:11 PM |
I'm going to get all emo on your asses.

I really don't have any friends. I generally like it that way, and make it that way. I'm not anti friend. It's like... i dont do yoga, i don't do friends. Works for me. About 95% of the time.

Then theres times when i really wish i had a good solid friend who i could text out of the blue to go for a hike with me, but the point isn't the hike, it's that i need someone to talk to. About heavy poo. About light poo. About turtles. And they'd be non judgement, and non 'omg? What's wrong? Are you okay?'. But sturdy enough to take all my heavy poo. Not take it on. But to listen to it.
And id do the same for them. Like, oh, Friend is calling and wants to go for a walk. Sounds like she needs a friend, I'll be back in a few hours Love.
But then that other 95% of the time would kill that relationship.

How much do i spend for a cop workers baby shower/ kegger? - Mood:Good
Tuesday May 09 20179:06:10 AM |
It's a co-ed, laid back, beach party/ baby shower. We are friends but not outside of work. Husband and i are both going. She has a amazon registry. How much do we spend on a gift? She has good range of prices on there.

I'm at work. It's super quiet. 2 people have come in so far, it's awesome. I am all for a very, very quiet day. Or some good drama.
I'm not sure what to do with myself.
I have a computer, but the speakers suck. I don't really wanna watch a show anyway.
What are you up to?

I`m at a pre graduation party with a bunch of people i don`t know. So. I am awkwardly typing on my phone. - Mood:Good
Friday May 05 20175:24:46 PM |
To avoid awkwardly talking to people. I have no desire to chat. Unfortunately, that's what you do at these things.

Husband is graduating doc program. He is now Dr. Husband.

His mom is here. She's nice, i like her.

I'm hungry. And my feet hurt (heels). And id like to be on our couch. But I'm trying to be supportive

Its still 2 hours until this thing even starts. STARTS.

I don't social well.

I made a cake and I`m super proud of it so I`m making a journal about it - Mood:Good
Wednesday April 26 20173:40:13 AM |
But picture in next post because I'm on my computer and the pic is on my phone.

Theres a big meeting/ training/ spring kick off thing tomorrow for the virginia park system (our district at least), so I made a 3 layer chocolate mocha cake with ganache layers and buttercream frosting
Virginia is white chocolate and food coloring.

I started making it about 7pm. Its now 3:30am and I am finally finished. I was going to bring the cake in at 9am (thing starts at 10am) but I have a feeling I will be sleeping in. I can't remember if they eat stuff right away or at the end.
I also don't wanna bring it when everyone is there. Too much attention. But I am super proud of it. I'm not even going to the thing. But i like to bake. And have wanted to try to bake this.
Well, I saw a 3 layer chocolate cake on fb. I used their cake recipe. Its good. I kinda.. pieced together the rest of it.

I have a new mattress. I`m not sure how i feel about this yet. - Mood:Good
Friday April 21 201711:22:33 PM |
The plan was to get a cheap twin mattress for my husband to sleep on when his mom visits so she can have his room/bed, and he'd bunk with me in my room on the floor and id sleep in my twin bed. (Yes we have different rooms. His is his office, mine is full of clutter, how i like it. We'd drive each other crazy if we slept in the same room/bed. With my 5 alarms i snooze, his constant tossing and turning. Anyway. )

So we go to the store to pick up this 99 dollar twin matress and it looks like a dorm bed. And i figure why not spend a little more and get something more decent.
Then i have the brilliant idea of getting a nicer mattress for me, and using mine as the spare. Since mine is fine and all, but inherited from my great aunt, whose mother used to sleep on it. It's seen better days.

So i got a memory foam mattress its very.... soft. Its comfy but i worry for my back.

Walking jauntily while not wearing a bra is an interesting, not entirely pleasant, experience. - Mood:Good
Saturday April 15 20176:07:58 PM |
My uniform is rather bulky and my chest is rather not bulky, so i went braless today. Its all good until I put a little pep in my step. I wish there was something in between bra and braless.

I made cream filled chocolate cupcakes with ganache on top. They are okay. Cream is meh. Other people said they liked them. But (these) people are nice. But meh. The cake is good The ganache is good. I heated up some left over ganache and dipped an unfilled cake into it. Omg. Heaven. I apparently can't make cream filling.

I felt valued at work today. For a little bit Then awkward things super sensitive me picked up on happened, then my husbands all miffy at me because i forgot to text him i was on the way home when I left work (he worries). and now I am meh.
Cupcake in warm ganache helped though.

Pictures in next post.
I will let you guess if related to braless or cupcakes.

A dim room + a too tall mirror + eyebrow plucking = ....... - Mood:Good
Wednesday March 22 20173:00:32 AM |
It's painful. And probably scary looking. But i don't know yet, because i can't see in the mirror properly, and the step stool i use to be able to see in the mirror makes too much noise for 3am.

Looking in the mirror make me feel very old. Mostly because of how grey and how... oddly shaped my hair is. It might be thinning.

I keep meaning to dye it. Red. Never is the right time. I was going to yesterday, but i called out sick on Monday and really didn't want to go back to work with new hair after calling out. Plus i needed to trim about 4 inches from it first. So i did that.

My husband is officially Dr. now As in doctorate, not medical. We are Dr. And Mrs. Neat.

Still waiting on the damn giraffe.

Nothing else is new with me. I lead a very boring life.

I should go to bed but I`m watching a damn giraffe. - Mood:Good
Tuesday March 14 20172:53:47 AM |
I got sucked into the whole April giving birth thing.
Though mostly I watched because i loooved giraffes and I just liked watching them be giraffes. But shes acting all weird tonight and I feel like the second i go to bed shes going to give birth and I'll all be like wtf.

Not that I particularly want to watch a giraffe give birth. It sounds a bit gross.

Well, plus I have the next 4 days off from work so I don't NEED to go to bed for any reason really.

Also my husband stressed me all out and I feel like a terrible wife.

Its pouring outside I love heavy rain. I love thunderstorms more, but I'll take just rain too.

I am so itchy. I'd try to figure out what caused this lasted allergic reaction but its just.. whatever. Happened so often that whatever. Though its irritating. Mostly centered on my head, upper back, arms. But i haven't used any new products on my hair. So I dunno.

My family hasn`t had power and has been in a state of emergency for the past 3 days - Mood:Good
Saturday March 11 20177:10:54 PM |
So, apparently they had hurricane force winds in western NY (griff? Did you blow away?) and my mom, sister, and grandparents lost power on wednesday. The roof blew off of a local middle school. Trees, traffic lights, telephone poles, etc came down. Giant mess basically, it sounds like. Cool pictures though. My sister said it was 20 degrees today.

My aunt is the only one with power, so she packed up my elderly grandparents and their elderly dog and they are staying with her, which I sure is driving all 4 of them crazy
My mom has been bunkered down with her two dogs. But her house is 40 degrees now, so I think she dug out a generator and one of my stepdad's friends come over and set it up and show her how to use it.

What are your plans for the day?

I plan to stare off into space. Occasionally answer the phone.

What's new? What's good?

My pillow is incredibly uncomfortable, I`m cold, there`s 4 people in this one bedroom apt and I`m wide awake but laying in the dark because there`s no where else to go. I must be visiting family for the holidays. - Mood:Good
Saturday December 24 20162:14:26 AM |
My neck so hurts.

Theres a cot and a twin bed in this room and it takes up literally the entire room.

Did christmas with my husbands family, good times. Man. He loses about 20 years in maturity when he gets around his brother. His mom is so sweet.

Ive been mostly staying with my aunt. Which drives is votboth a bit nuts. I bought a potato. That potato in her fridge is bothering her. She doesn't say so but she's easy to read. Why? Because it doesn't have a set date and time to be eaten. Everything in her kitchen has a planned date and time to be eaten. Then i come in with my potato and apple for "whenever" and it throws her off.

Sister and i are going bakery hopping tomrrow. A tradition of ours when together. On Chrismas eve though. Oy. She insists it'll be fine. I think we are going to be in one long line for about 2 hours but whatever mostly about sisterly bonding.

What do you know about Poughkeepsie, Ny? - Mood:Good
Monday December 05 201611:17:48 PM |
We might have the opportunity to move to Poughkeepsie for my husbands job.

We are from Western ny, so I'm thinking the weather is similar. I've never been there though. Whats the atmosphere like? I'm in the recreation/ state park field, are there opportunities for that there?
I'm not overly thrilled to move somewhere I've never been, but that will be just about anywhere we move. It's unlikely we'll get to stay here. It was the same when we moved here to VA but we knew it was for only a few years, this would be long term.

If you haven't been to Poughkeepsie, have you ever moved blindly to a new city? What were some challenges? Good things?

It's gonna be so hard to choose where to live.

Help me yall

Group hug yall - Mood:Good
Monday December 05 201610:36:56 AM |
There would be so much ass grabbing if there was a yt group hug.

It's the anniversary of my dad's death. I'm not overly affected. Not sure why. I was by his death.

I am making everyone's Christmas presents this year so I can't whore them out to Facebook or what have you yet. So I figured I'd post pictures here. Lucky you.

I'm all sickly. I think. My head and stomach are wonky. It comes and goes though. I'm okay for a bit then mega headache, then it fades then comes back. My stomach is fine unless I eat. Which. I need to do every once in awhile.

Christmas always reminds me of the YT gift exchange. That was fun. I got and gave some awesome things.

I just got into jewelry making, literally about 2 weeks ago. I bought some wire and pliers. That sh*t is hard. The tree is rather... not what I was going for. I'll give that to my grandma. Grandmas love everything.

I come here for help buying my husbands Christmas present, a punching bag thingy - Mood:Good
Thursday November 03 20165:17:32 AM |
Yeah. So. I'm not sure if this is feasible or not. He likes mma stuff and he's always talked about wanting a punch bag. I think he used to have one as a teenager.

We live in an apt. No where to hang a heavy bag or speed bag. Not sure if a freestanding one would hold up?

I know nothing about this stuff. Help.

Hi yall.

My job closed for two days due to the hurricane/ storm - Mood:Good
Saturday September 03 20163:13:13 AM |
Is it a hurricane? Storm? I don't know. I showed up for my 4pm-12:30am shift and was told we are closing for the next two days (we never close) and are evacuating all our overnight guests (about 205 reservations). Fun times. They had to call every guest individually and tell them of the evacuation and to get out. People were not happy. Luckily by the time i got there, just the stragglers were left. I only had to call a few people.

I spent most of my shift (only til 10pm, when the place completely closed and gates were locked), rearranging the supply room. Man, maps are heavy. As are crates of paper. Its much more organized now though so yay.
I was rather looking forward to riding the storm out at work the next few nights. An adventure of sorts.

I might be back. - Mood:Good
Wednesday March 30 20161:28:50 AM |
Not sure why I am back, just found myself here.

I itch. All over. It happens to me sometimes. I have no idea why. Some kind of allergy. It feels like my entire body is covered in fuzzies/ hairs tickling and itching. My ass mostly at the moment. My arms and face for a few hours before that.

I called into work today, i HATE calling in. But i woke up super dizzy. 1) I can't drive like that 2) if it gets worse its terrrrrible to deal with and I didn't want to be at work for it.

Married life is good.
I miss my father a lot. I still dream he is alive, which is nice. I hope my dreams don't catch up to reality, its nice to see and interact with him again.

I didn't think it was possible for YT to be any slower, but it appears it is. Faces (screennames) I mostly recognize though, cool.

Oh the itching.
I may Benadryl tonight.

So, my father died. - Mood:Good
Monday December 07 20154:53:26 AM |
It feels weird to smile when I forget for a minute.

I'd glad I have the best husband ever who is completely there for me exactly how I need. I woke him up at like 4am last night hysterically crying in the shower and we watched kids movies for awhile. He hates kids movies.

I also feel like a terrible person because my bio-dad is still alive. And if it had to be one of them, I really deeply wish it would have been him. But the world doesn't work like that.

He was 56. Heart attack in a tree stand, hunting.

It was so out of no where. I've been expecting The Phone Call for awhile, for my grandparents. They are 91 and 83.

Happy Birthday to Me - Mood:Good
Sunday October 11 20151:35:47 AM |
I came on here to post a woe is me birthday thread but looks like SJ beat me to it

I'm not actually doing much on my birthday, 11th. I took the day off from work (which was rather complicated) so I could skype with my family. But they are them and even though I told them awhile ago I got the day off they were all, what? You got it off? today. So we're celebrating on my next day off, the 25th. Which is sooo far away

Husband just got back from a work trip, so he will be knee deep in work to catch up on for the next week.

I will be celebrating with Netflix then. Which is good. I like Netflix. Running out of stuff to watch though. Can't find a good series to get into.

I think my laptop is dying. I can't move him without losing the power connection. Which sucks. As he spends most of his time in my lap usually. Also having issues with the spacebar.

Rainy days and mass killings always get me down - Mood:Good
Saturday October 03 20152:41:58 AM |
Its been raining for about a week straight. Wind and such. Hurricane whatnot. It's pouring at the moment. I got called to not come into work for the next few days since i'd blow/ float away in my little box/ booth. Bunch of places are flooded.

We got 'hurricane provisions'. Essentials like batteries, water, canned stuff, pasta, chocolate, tums.

I find myself bored out of my mind.

We watched disaster movies, made popcorn and such. That was nice.

I made muffins. They came out.. not great. Lemon poppy seed muffins always have this terrible aftertaste when i try to make them.

I miss sunshine. And leaving the apartment.

I also need some new shows to watch.

Am I in blackface if i go as a gingerbread man for Halloween? - Mood:Good
Friday October 02 20152:59:30 AM |
My thought is "uh no". But people are super touchy. So, if i wear brown sweats, brown sweater decorate them cookie-ish, then paint my face brown, leave circles around my eyes either white or black (not sure yet) and do other cookie-ish make up... am I going to get people ing at me?

Halloween party with husband's cohort peoples.
Been trying to think of a good costume for us. A couple costume, where he is mostly wearing 'normal' clothes, and he knows who/what he is. Its difficult.

I have a chef outfit (former culinary arts major). So figure he can be a chef I'll be.. some kind of pastry/ food.

I refuse to be a "sexy (foodstuff)".
I was going to be a cupcake but all the ones i can find to make sitting look insanely uncomfortable.
Gingerbread sweats sounds lovely. Hot. But lovely.
