Watching: Preacher’s Daughter
I’m getting so bad at not blogging again. =_= I swear, I’m going to turn that around! The past couple days I’ve been thinking I was going to blog, but by the time I finally get around to it it’s just too late for me. Ugh. I really want to get back into the habit of blogging once a day again – I just felt a lot better when I did. I think it was for the pure fact that I was able to bitch about things that happened during a normal day.
On Saturday there was that arts/crafts event at a local elementary school. I didn’t go to this school – well I had never set foot inside the door before Saturday. One good thing is the fact that we were setting up right beside the exit – so it was easy to load things into the gym and everything. During the little event my mom did bring my niece to see me because I was pretty sure she’d be gone by the time I got home. Mom gave her $10 to spend at the event and she didn’t spend it all. She bought a Hello Kitty hair bow, a chocolate sucker, a bunny pin for her coat and a chicken hair clip. After that we went outside to the playground and played. One of the play structures had one of those “tube” things that hooks one part to another and you have to crawl through it. Well when she got halfway through the tube she would stop and turn around and back out of it – she did it more then once. Ha ha. And mom told me when they got home she took a nap.
The grand total of what I made…$3. No joke. So in the end it seemed like a major waste of time, again. I mean I know I shouldn’t bitch because well money is money, but it just sucks. Gives me all the more reason to get this Etsy shop up and running.
I have hit a roadblock with this Etsy shop. My aunt is all worried about people wanting to buy things because of the shipping cost that will have to go on some of the things because of their weight. I tried to get it through her head that if someone is ordering something they understand the weight of the object. >_< But I am going to just set the shop up so I just have to put in all the info later – maybe that will make her get on top of things. Or at least I hope it will.
I do know there will be no worldwide shipping right off the bat. US/Canada will be the only places we’ll be shipping for now.
And I have figured out I’m going to put a couple pairs of earrings (the bow earrings ) and a couple pairs of the bow hair ties. If anyone has any kind of request for something to be listed, I’ll be willing to do that as well. I’m not sure what my aunt is going to be listing as the first items.
Considering the event Saturday is the last one until the end of May – unless one pops up between now and then – I thought getting this shop together would be something my aunt would be totally into making happen. I’m hoping to talk to her tomorrow and try to get it all worked out with her “problems” with doing it. Ugh.
Tomorrow I’m going to try a new recipe. It’s for roasted mustard potatoes. The picture looked so good, so I can’t wait to try it. The recipe calls for 5 cups of cubed potatoes – I’m going to half it since I’ll be the only one eating it. I just really hope it turns out to be great. The recipe is super simple, which will help out because I’ll have my niece and pretty much I’ll be the only one watching her. My brother (her dad) will be here but he never really watches her.
And the fact that I’ve been watching her so much my mom is back on that baby kick. Not her having a baby, I mean her saying I need to find a guy and settle down so I can start a family. I guess she can’t understand I’m pansexual and I’m not ready for a family. I have my kitties, that’s all I need/want for now.
But I do have a little date Saturday. It’s a dinner date, not until around 6pm. He said I can pick where we eat. So we’re just going to grab some pizza from the food court in the mall. Maybe later we’ll have one of those full out “dates” with something more then just food court food. Ha ha.
This is the second date within like three weeks. The first date was just so bad. I was bored to tears within 10 minutes, it was like being at dinner with a brick wall – not to mention the cell phone thing. I was just so glad when it was over, two hours was way too long. I mean, if you’re going to put a gender role on me, then that means you’re the man and you’re suppose to take charge in a date – at least make the conversation. Oh yeah, and he sat eating in front of me and didn’t offer to order me a damn thing – not even a water! With all of that, I am hoping this second date is better – and it’s with someone different.
And no one knew about this second date until this blog. It’s been planned since about Sunday, I’ve just been keeping it a secret. This also means my mom won’t know and I’m not having him pick me up at my place, though he will be dropping me off. We do text back and forth a lot during a day, but I’m just not getting my hopes up. Every time I do, it just turns out bad. Though I’ve already had the sex talk with him and the fact that I’m not looking for sex at all. Even with that, he’s still talking to me so that’s a good thing.
I have put on a little weight, which is devastating to me. So I’ve been looking for simple exorcising I can do around the house. I’m also keeping in mind it’s that yucky bloating crap. But even knowing that, I still need some simple exorcising I can do so that I can be ready for summer. Right now…I’m far from ready. But then again I do have major body issues, so what I see and what everyone else sees are two different things. I’ll just say, I don’t like what I’m seeing in the mirror.
