Over the weekend (April 8th – 10th) I went to Louisville (KY) with my boyfriend, brother & his girlfriend. It was such a good time and well honestly I needed a weekend away from everything. With that said, my wallet is still angry about the trip.
I know it’s been a while since I’ve actually wrote something worthwhile. Well, I am still alive. I’ve just been working odd hours and lately I just want to go to bed after work. Saturdays I’m now working nearly 9 hours. For the past two weeks though I’ve had three days off in a row. On these days off my body just doesn’t want to do anything.
When it comes to life, I am dating. I’m dating someone I’ve honestly loved for a while. I adore him and I’m happy for the first time in a long time.
First I want to talk about something neat I came across while just randomly looking through things online. You all know I do love a great subscription box and the horror themed one I used to get just didn’t excite me. I think that’s mainly due to the fact I’m not a huge fan of current horror.
What can I say, I love what I grew up with.
**After the break you will find a picture of my new tattoo. All body parts are covered, but the picture is topless (breasts are covered, but there is no shirt on). I thought I would give a warning for those who find it “tasteless”**
Thank you everyone for the well wishes. It’s been hard, no lie. Even though it’s been a few weeks I still call for Odie every so often. Sometimes I still sit outside on the steps – in the fence where he would go out to use the bathroom – and cry. I plan to clean that fenced in area off and put a table and some chairs out there so I can have my own little place to hide.
I have the wood to make a marker for Odie’s grave. I’ve just been putting off painting it. I know that sounds stupid, but I don’t want to do it…I kind of hope this is just all a dream.
Wow, it’s been a while. I know I’ve been bad at blogging lately, but I’ve been working a lot more. I just finished six days straight. I get one day off and I work two and get the weekend off. All I can say is, I’m ready for the weekend.
My birthday is Saturday and I have plans to hang out with someone and that’s pretty much it. Well aside from buying a printer at some point. Yes, that’s my big birthday purchase is a printer. haha.
I took some time to think about it all and…fuck that psycho ex. I mean it says a lot if he’s still trying to be up my ass four years later. It says – to me – he’s not happy with his life and he hasn’t dated much (if at all). That’s all his problem, not mine.
This weekend turned out to be a lot better then I thought it was doing to be. What can I say, seeing Jason just made the weekend a lot better. All we did was cuddle and watch movies – which I’ve missed greatly since I didn’t have the chance to see him for a few weeks. I really did miss him a lot.
When I was home this weekend though I was able to get some new things listed in my shop [LINK]. I listed a set (2) of coasters and a load of keychains and necklaces that are OSU related.
Today I picked out fabric to make a little pouch to put pads (or tampons) in. The first one I’m making is going to be able to fit at least two pads in. I know whenever I have them in my bag and I need one I always have to search for them, so when they’re in a pouch it will be so much easier. I’m going to sell them for around $3 (or at the highest $5). They’re going to have a metal snap on them instead of just a button.
I also made the pattern for my first rag doll! I have two rag dolls cut out right now too, I was going to sew them together at least tonight but I wanted to look up how to do the eyes and smile on the dolls. I was going to make both of the rag dolls for my niece for Christmas, but depending on how the one turns out I may put it up in my shop. It just depends. I think the hardest thing is going to be doing the hair for the dolls. I’ve never made yarn hair before. I figure by tomorrow night I’ll have one at least close to being ready for hair…or I hope.
Tonight I finished the last piece for my sweet lolita cosplay. I’m going to try the whole outfit on tonight to see how it looks. I’m still trying to find a stuffed lamb to make into a purse, I just haven’t been any where that sells cheap stuffed animals.
I’ve been spending a lot of time just thinking of things I can add to my shop, it’s just really hard to know what people are looking for. I do plan on doing at least a couple Christmas related things, I just haven’t really figured out what I want to do.
I did get the news today that I’ll be getting a laptop for Christmas. I took some time to look online at one place and I found an Acer [LINK] that I like. I’m looking for under $500 – under $400 would be better. And I don’t want one of those netbooks, and I want a nice sized screen so I can watch movies and edit pictures. I also looked at some Samsung laptops, but I don’t think I’d want a Samsung laptop. I guess there’s a chance we’ll be having internet changed over to wifi too, so that’s another reason to get a laptop so I don’t have to mess with adapters.
Short blog for me but I need to find something to eat.
