I started on my vest last week and I’ve finally finished sewing the patches on. Well I mean I finished sewing the patches on that I have finished. I still have a couple patches left to paint. What can I say, I’m completely stoked to wear it.
The jacket I bought to turn into my vest was an adult large, so it’s big. Well vests are suppose to be big, they’re not suppose to be fitted.
This morning I sat and cut out the stencil for one patch and I haven’t cut out the last stencil yet. I don’t really like doing it at my desk since I don’t have any light, so I’ve been doing it at the kitchen table when everyone else is in bed. ^_^
And yes, I’m finally back at my desk. It feels kind of weird since I haven’t used my tower since early January. If you remember the graphics card went out on it in early January. Well it went to my computer guy and I got it back the same week…I was just lazy and didn’t hook it back up until yesterday. Why am I back at my desk? The most bummer reason – the cable on my laptop charger broke in two. I’m not sure what happened I just know it was working one day and then later that night I went to plug my laptop in (the battery is shot) and I had nothing…ugh. The to make the situation suck even more – I have files on my laptop I need! I won’t be able to get the files until I get a new charger – which costs around $30. >_<
Earlier this week though the weather was AWESOME! Everything is coming out in bloom…just in time for a chance of a rain snow mix Sunday. I’m not joking. We went from 80 degrees and thunderstorms to the chance of rain snow mix. I’m ready for spring! I’m ready for road trips!
While the weather was great Tuesday I took the chance to go outside and take some pictures of the pretty greens. The battery in my new camera died though so instead of waiting for it to charge I grabbed my old camera and took it outside to get some shots. And I realized how much I love that camera too. So I’m going to make a case for it and start carrying it with me again. Yes, I always have a camera with me so now I’ll always have two cameras with me. ^_^
I’m sure after this coming weekend is over I’ll have a few pictures to share. Saturday a group of friends are going bowling! Yes, I’m excited to go bowling – I love it even though I haven’t done it in a while. I am kind of bummed because I can’t find my shoes. What can I say, the thought of sharing shoes with someone just grosses me out but since I can’t find mine I guess I’ll have to stick it out. Though I am going to look into buying a new pair. I’m going to look around online then to go one of the local sports places to see what their prices are. When I bought my shoes around 5 years ago I spent $25 on them. I’m hoping since bowling is kind of a winter sport I’ll be able to find a great sale.
And I’m 90% sure I’m going to put my mohawk up for bowling! I mean, why not! I’m sure it will make for some great pictures too. ^_^ I might even wear my vest for the first time.
Thanks to the rain and thunderstorms though I have to sleep on the couch. As soon as it started raining outside, it started raining on my bed. It’s still raining on my bed. I hate sleeping on the couch though because the dogs always think that means I want them to sleep with me and I really don’t. I kept waking up last night because Oliver kept getting on the couch and laying on my feet. =_= I hope tonight if different though. I haven’t been able to sleep all week so it would just be nice to sleep for once this week.
