The Grind

Back to work a day late really screwed me up. It was a quick day, but for some reason I just couldn't get a handle on what day it was.

A co-worker, R, came into work really depressed because her husband is out of town. I gave her a hug, but she never seemed to cheer up. I home he comes home soon.

A Meeting of the Singular Minds

I had another meeting at work today that was so strange it kind of goes beyond description.  I decided to take the rest of the day off and spent it hanging out with my sister.  I needed a decompression day, and it was nice to just get laundry done.  She has her test tomorrow and I hope she does really well.

Sushi Boat

We decided not to try anything crazy and just head home.  We stopped at a social media trending sushi restaurant and had some amazing rolls, including the Viking Roll: 

We headed home from there, stopped into a new sex shop in town, and came home to find out that my sister passed all her finals!  In a couple of days she'll take her licensing exam, and next week she's got her graduation.  I am really going to miss her.

Daybreak Tripper

I woke up at 3:45 AM, took a shower and downed an energy drink so that I would be awake for the balloon ride.  Five minutes before we were supposed to meet the bus, we get a phone call that the trip was canceled due to weather.  It was still and calm, so not sure what happened.  Of course, now I was hopped up on energy drinks at 4:00 AM with nowhere to go.  It took three hours to calm down enough to sleep a little more, and then we headed to the Zoo.

It was humid and just under 100 degrees.  Naturally, I got heat stroke.  We had to leave for some AC and a meal.  Then we hit my favorite Big Box store and headed back to the hotel.  We had called to try and reschedule the balloon but it was sold out for tomorrow. Looks like the whole trip was a bust.

All Day Trippin'

I realized that I forgot sunscreen about 20 minutes after we left.  We got stuck in a traffic jam, but did get a couple of hours of "Gone Girl" listened to before we arrived.  The room was older, but very pretty.  We hit the hay early because we have to wake up before sunrise to get on the bus for the hot air balloon.

Pack it Up

I kept having dreams that I would forget something for the trip.  I guess I'm a little excited because there is a lot of this trip that isn't really planned by me, and being an INFJ, that cause anxiety.

A Decade of Awesome

Hubby and I celebrated 10 years of marriage today. It got 78 likes on FB, by far the most I've ever gotten. 

When I was talking about it at work today a girl said "Wow, so you don't even remember being single huh?"


Yeah. Because I'm 1000 years old.

Birth of the Mother

It was my mom's birthday today, so I called her up and she liked her gift.  She got a lot of gifts but still seemed to be complaining about a lot of stuff.

I hope I'm not as much like her as I think I am.

The Heat is On

I came home to a loud noise that I assumed was the Playstation left on.  Come to find out that the noise is the air conditioning.  It also smelling like rubber.  Hubby turned it off, and we located the number of the AC guys that helped us before.  I hope it's just a motor out and not too much money.  Otherwise, goodbye savings.

Makes Mouths Happy

My sister and I went out shopping last night and picked up some Twizzlers that were watermelon and green apple flavored.  They were pretty good, but I like regular flavor a little better.

I'm cheating a little and coming back to say I had the craziest dream that night.  I lived in some sort of compound, but nice.  There was a deep ditch that someone fell into and died, and I could feel the emotions of all the people who were sad about her death.  I felt it physically in the dream, it was so sad.  Later in the dream a fire started and I couldn't get my family out in time.  I woke up at 7:00 AM and couldn't go back to sleep because I still felt all those emotions of all those people.  It took hours for it to go away.

Make New Friends, But Keep the Old

An old college theatre teacher of hubby and I's came into town today.  We showed her around town a little and went out to dinner.

It was nice to talk to people who had known us years ago, and to talk about the hometown and theatre again.  I hope it will be like that again when we move back.  The house market is much better here, so we are tempted to just sell the house and move without jobs, but I don't think that would be such a good idea.

I keep wanting to write something better here, but I never have the time.  Writer's block is the worst.

A co-worker was saying she wants to make the office all these deserts and sweets that I can't eat.  I told her it was unfair to make all those things, and she got me talking about recipes for things my mom used to made.

I realized she got me talking about food and said to her "Bad Friend, no doughnut!"

Customs Charges

I got a bill from UPS in the mail about the anniversary rings we ordered from Etsy.  Apparently we have to pay $84 for customs fees because they came from out of the country.  I had no idea that I would have to pay an extra amount on top of paying for the rings.  It's money that I don't really have, and I'm not even sure I owe.

I'll have to give them a call on Tuesday anyway, as it was due two days before I even got the letter.

Downward Facing Lazy

I've been feeling so sore lately, and it's been hard to get out of bed or feel comfortable when I'm in bed.  Someone brought up yoga at work tonight and I thought it was a good idea to start doing it every night before bed.

Let's see how long that lasts.

The Hub started playing Blossom a week or so ago, so I started DVRing it to watch later.  I never watched it when it was on, I guess it was never really my thing.

At first I was disappointed because it seemed so basic.  Blossom has a problem that starts in her room, next scene she's trying to talk to her dad and it doesn't work.  She goes to her neighbor's for advice.  She doesn't believe her neighbor, so stays up into the night and goes downstairs for a snack.  There she runs into her brother who reminds her that nothing is worse than being an ex-addict like him.  Joey comes down and says something stupid, and then the next scene she works it out with her dad.

Thankfully I stuck with it because they finally broke out of the mold of sitcominess.  The Rockumentary one is hilarious.

Posting the Opinions

I saw an internship in my hometown for Yelp, but it wanted at least 10 reviews on their site from them.  It wasn't a paid internship, but I realized I'd never left a review there, but use it almost daily.  I made a promise to devote today to writing at least 5, and wrote two other blog posts for my other blog for the rest of the month.

It feels good to write and have nothing else to do for the day.  I'm sure I could have cleaned or gone grocery shopping.  But it feels good to take a day for me and my art.  Cleaning can wait.

Friend R is back from Ohio and crashing on the couch tonight.  It feels like he wasn't gone that long.

Happy Not A Mother's Day

I took a pregnancy test this morning, and it was negative.  I made hubby take me out to sushi to celebrate.  My favorite big box store is coming to the city in a few years, long after I'm gone.  Of course, I can't really tell many people I plan on leaving, so I have to pretend to be happy about this news.

I'm working my way through the "90's: The Next Great Decade?" show on the DVR.  I was too young to fully understand the LA Riots, and I almost cried watching it.  I also see now how tragic of a character Anna Nicole really was too.

It was really difficult to see how "cool" Clinton was trying to be, as my dad was a Republican.  I  grew up thinking he was the worst thing ever.

Motivation Lost

I went into work thinking it would be slow and I would be able to write some of my novel and an entry for another blog.  Of course it was busy, and my motivation was lost.

Saturday, July 12, 2014


I've been getting more and more obsessed with my Myers-Briggs Results.  It just makes me understand myself so much more, and gives me solace that other people also have the same feelings and thoughts.

My sister found Introvert, Dear for me, and I've been reading at least an article a day.  I finally feel "understood" when I read it.

Slighty Less Angry

The nausea subsided and the vertigo went away, but the cramps and exhaustion remained.  My back and shins hurt, and I made the mistake of listening to a podcast about phantom pregnancies today.

I can't wait for the full moon madness to be over.

That was NOT okay

The symptoms of the Vodka party hit me hard today.  I was nauseated and got vertigo whenever I closed my eyes.  Of course I had used most of my sick time last week with my sick phone.   So I went into work and was no fun.  A co-worker suggested that even though I was on my period, I was most likely pregnant.    It's really the last thing I need, but I asked the hubby to pick up a test anyway.

I really can't wait for this pain to end.  G talked me into going out after work, and it was a mistake.  I parked in the wrong place, we didn't get to the location in time, and I didn't want to drink because now I'm paranoid.

Begrudgingly Okay

I didn't sleep much due to the super late Vodka party arrival.  I was already a little cranky arriving at work, but went with a friend/co-worker to 7-11 to get an energy drink to get me through the day.  As soon as I got up to the office everyone was super loud, pissing me off.  However, there were also balloons at my desk that were nice.  I got out my big headphones and tried to figure out who sent me the balloon bouquet.

As the night wore on, I found the person who gave me the balloons (I had helped her get tickets to a show) and had a good talk with another co-worker about awesome theme parks around the world.

In the end, it was an okay day, despite my crankiness.

My sister and I went out to the river today, and after a half hour a storm rolled in, so we rolled out.  We pulled over to the side of the road to watch the thunderstorm for awhile.  Although it was a hot and sweaty day, it was nice.  I miss hanging out with my sister, and hate my new work schedule.

Hubby was very cranky yesterday and today.  I'm worried about him.

Lemon Yellow Apple

I went to the Dentist this morning and then went to the Apple Store again, this time bringing my Mac Mini in case I needed it for the iTunes backup.  They scheduled me for an appointment at 5:30 PM, so I went home and had lunch with my sister.

I didn't get X-Rays at the Dentist because I'm late to my Vodka party this month, so I didn't want to take any changes.

We were at Apple from 5:30-10:00 working on my phone.  Lesson Learned, take off a majority of the pictures every three months or so.

My sister and I are going to the river tomorrow, so I'm excited to get out of town.

Sunday, July 06, 2014


The highlight of my day was when Hubby replaced the toilets so that we can use bleach tablets in them again.  Some days it's just those little things.

iCrash Into Me

10 minutes before leaving for work my phone decided to have an identity crisis.  It couldn't even find the serial number, and wanted me to connect to iTunes.  I connected, but couldn't wait until I had to go to work.  I grabbed my laptop and troubleshot for an hour and a half.  It was not working, so I left work and spent 3.5 hours at the Apple store with 3 different employees.

My phone still hasn't fully updated as of now, so I might have to go back tomorrow to see what is up.

I went back to work, and for fun we took the Myers-Briggs test.  I'm a INFJ, and so are two other people at work.  It's totally crazy, because that is the most rare result

Suck My 4th

Suck my Kiss was playing as I was driving home tonight, and I noticed that there was a thunderstorm, which hasn't happened in years.  Fireworks are also legal to sell and use here, so little bursts were coming up all over the valley, and it was beautiful.

I had a perfect moment there in the car.  Happy Fourth of July.

Stealing the things I stole

Saw this as I was playing QuizUp today. Hey, that's my photo!

Late Night Martini

At a meeting today I got to talk about my Saved By The Bell podcast, so that was actually pretty fun.  After work I went out with G to have a drink.  We haven't seen each other in awhile and it was really nice to catch up and vent, as well as fight about movies.  We got into a loud "fight" about if The Money Pit was a romantic comedy or now.  We were laughing so hard we started laughing, it was a good night.

He'll be out near me tomorrow night with his fiance, so I might come out just to say hi.

Work and Play

I'd give a TMI warning, but then I'd have to do it for the whole blog.

Though it was my day off I had to go into work to go to a meeting that went a little like this;

It was so hot that I just went home afterwards and then went out sex toy shopping with my sister after the sun had gone down.  We actually found a really nice store that I will go back to when I get other things.  I got a small toy that has a 15 year warranty, because I don't fuck around with fucking around. The store was actually pretty far away from the house, and my sister laughed because I said "I've never gone this far to just get off before."
