Here I am!

I know I’ve been in a serious MIA situation lately. What can I say, I needed a break. Well it wasn’t the fact that I needed a break, more of a fact that training for my new position at work killed me. The good thing is that I’m finished with training and it felt like it took six years to get it finished. I am now a shift supervisor at work, which is a step under being an assistant manager. I’ve also been closing since I finished training, which mean long nights and I usually sleep most of the day – that is okay with me though.

Still Here…

It’s been a LONG time since I’ve wrote anything and honestly I miss blogging like I used to. I just ended up getting busy with things and never found the time to do it like I used to. I’m hoping, maybe next week, I’ll be able to get somewhat back into the habit – we’ll see!

I’ve been closing at work, so that means I end up sleeping a lot during the day. That just takes all the fun out of everything. Like tomorrow I work 6pm to 2am and Saturday I work 8pm to 3am. I do like closing, but my body doesn’t like when I have to change between a regular “lunch” shift and closing.

With that said, this isn’t going to be a super long post and it will mostly be pictures. I just wanted to sit down and post SOMETHING.

Engagement Pictures

My brother is getting married next year – October, I think – so they asked me to do a couple pictures for them to use as their engagement pictures. It’s been a long time since I’ve been asked to do pictures for anyone, so it was kind of fun to get back to doing something like that.

They went to a park for the pictures. It was kind of chilly, which sucks and the wind ended up picking up because not long after we finished it ended up raining.

Washington, D.C.

Last month we spent a weekend in DC! It was the first time I ever had a chance to go. It was around a six hour drive (one way). It was cold, but so worth it. I’m hoping to go back sometime within the next year. There’s just so much to see and so much to eat!

A week later…

Conjunctivitis = Pinkeye

As a child it’s an easy day off school. As an adult it’s a horrible day off work and having to listen to another adult (the doctor).

I had the pleasure of having Pinkeye last Thursday. In the end they think it happened when I was trying to get an eyelash out of my eye and I scratched my eye. I went to the hospital with my eye so swelled I could hardly open it, but after sitting the ER room waiting for the doctor to look at my eye the swelling did go down. In the end I had to take last Thursday off and a week of eye drops.

I work a lot.

Work

I know I’ve been a little MIA over the past few months. Only blogging once every few weeks. I feel bad for doing that. Honestly I haven’t felt that I have anything worthwhile to blog about. Well nothing that is major anyways. My life has been pretty boring, all I’ve really been doing is working – and when I get a good day off I spend it with my boyfriend.

Work is still work. Still working toward that management thing, which means three weeks of training at another store. That is something that scares me, going to a different store with people I don’t know and having to be in “charge” of them. The highlight of all of that going on is the fact that I’ll have a hotel room for those three weeks. So it’s kind of like a vacation with work. haha. At the end of the training though, there’s another test. Yep, lots of tests to be a manager. In the end I’m hoping it’s all worth it.

Not Much

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.

Keep your politics out of my apathy

Booger

This is Booger. She was my cat for 12 years, until be passed in 2008. I know it’s been years, but I still miss her. Now the reason behind posting those pictures and talking about her is a pure and simple fact: I want a tattoo of her. With that said, I don’t like portrait/picture tattoos. I just personally don’t like them.

I’m asking for some help. If you are artsy or know anyone who is artsy. I want the tattoo of Booger to be a cartoon style tattoo. So if you want to take a shot at it do so and please share with me, or if you know someone who would like to do it please share!
