Jacie- here's some never before seen photos from Halloween/thanksgiving.
So I went to Lake Worth for about 24 hours to see my parents and brother and basically pick up Christmas presents. Lol. And my dad bought pretty much everything I sent him links for! One of those items was an SD card reader that plugs into the iPad and that is where the omg comes from. Cause it is the best invention ever. Lol well for right now. Last year it was the TiVo that my dad bought and the iPad J bought. In 2000 it was the first TiVo my dad bought me. Basically the best invention ever changes. Lol.... So for 2013 it is the card reader. I've misplaced the camera/computer cord and the SD slot on my computer doesn't always work so I'm not the greatest in the world at transferring photos from the camera to anything. They will sit on the camera for months and months until I eventually sit at the computer and do something. It took me a year or so to put our Alaska pictures on facebook for that reason. So yeah, omg! Here's some of the photos I have...
I need to think of some. Get better at my nails? More nail art? Then the more serious or real ones like pay off more debt, move somewhere cheaper and get better at spending our money. I'll make a list at some point. I also want to buy a domain name and.…………… I forgot what else I was going to say.
I am at my dad's. I need to take a shower and then pack up the car with all my stuff. Luckily I have two large card boxes in my trunk that will be very helpful right now.
I remember! I want to try to do a 365 album again.
After he went golfing, I gave him his presents. Here they are all wrapped up.
The one with green paper and writing is Christmas paper because I was going to give it to him as his Christmas gift but after I had the newer purchased stuff in front of me to wrap, I realized that I needed to give that one as a birthday gift otherwise it would have been "uneven" in terms of price value. Lol. I was going to give him two video games for his birthday ($40 each) and a Hulk toy and then Hulk speakers (that's what's wrapped in Christmas paper), a framed picture of his family and a hulk shirt. Well then I decided to give him the toy, a video game and the speakers for his birthday plus the m&ms and the other video game, the hulk shirt and the picture for Christmas. Then I remembered that I had a hulk tervis tumbler for him too. So he got 4 gifts for Christmas and 3 for his birthday. Lol. The solid green paper is Christmas paper but he really likes the color green and it's solid green, no words or pictures on it so I figured it would be okay to use.
Anyways. After that we went to Square One to meet his family for lunch but minus his brother P. Here's some pictures I took today.
It's 6 am!!!! Why the eff am I still awake? I took all the pills too. Well not all as in the grand total sum of how many I have. But I mean I took some of each kind. And I can't take the good one now because it'll probably have me sleeping until 2pm. But oh well I took it. It should hopefully have me knocked out soon. And then hopefully I can sleep through til when J comes home from golf. I have no idea what he wants us to do today. I don't know if he wants me to take him out to lunch or dinner. I told him to think about where he wants us to go to lunch at. So hopefully that means that he won't go out to eat with the boys. Which I know if he wants to and it comes up, I would hope at least that he asks me if I want to go or picks me up. I gave money to my credit cards.
I'm falling asleep here so I guess it's time to lay down and see if I sleep til 1143 am which is what I set my alarm for.
Is what I am.
I did my nails twice yesterday and took it all off twice. So today I've had no nail polish on. Sad face. But I got all kinds of goodies in the mail today. I got a New Years card from an online friend, some photo magnets and my star nail studs from the born pretty store! So I will probably do my nails tomorrow.
I don't know what we're doing for J's birthday on Saturday. Then Sunday and Monday I'm going to my dad's.
And for now... I'm going to lay down and hope that I fall asleep.
I can feel the AC blowing on me and it feels really cold. Lol. I think that's all I gotta say. I vented on Wordpress. Work was super busy today. I hopefully made like $7 in PMs today. That'd be awesome. I did end up watching my show on Hulu before work. But my ride got here when there was 3 minutes left. Noooooo. So I still need to go watch the last 3 minutes. After my shower but before I paint my nails.
I'm going to use tags for my nail polish picture posts. I might turn this into a nail polish only blog and move the life/wedding stuff over to the wordpress blog. I might try to earn points with the bornprettystore by writing reviews and I have to also post on various forms of social media but I don't want to be annoying. So if I make this a nail only blog then I can use this identity that promotes the bornprettystore stuff. Along with my other nail polish stuff... Lol.
Good night. Must sleep.
I need to delete some pictures off my iPad and iPhone so I'm going to make a few posts that are heavy with pictures.
I read a blog post on a restaurant kit for babies and toddlers and she used a make up bag for it and I realized I had a travel bag that was very similar and that I wanted to try to make a car kit out of mine. I had bought it last year to use for Alaska but packed it before the trip. Our tickets were bought in January and we still thought we were going to move then so I was packing all our stuff up. We ended up never moving but I never unpacked the stuff either. So in May when it was time for our trip I forgot all about the perfect travel bag. This year I went through the box and found it and was like OH YEAH. I still think it is a good bag for travel but I am always in my car for deliveries and always need something and I have stuff all over my car. I haven't put anything in it yet but here's some pictures.
The front. It has a soap case, 2 spray bottles and 3 regular bottles. I think they're all 3 ounces which is the max size for carry on luggage. It unzips for this pocket and there's a little room for something flat here (wet wipes).
Then the back.
Here's the inside of the containers.
Here's the inside of the back. It has the main compartment which then has two zippered pockets. One is see through and the other isn't. There's a strong metal hook to hang it up in the bathroom when traveling and it's even in the right place so that the bottles on the other side aren't upside down. Which this is from Walgreens so I'm surprised they got this right. Lol. As for what I'm thinking I'll keep in here, I'm going to have napkins, wet wipes and hand sanitizer for sure. I already keep a little bar of soap in my car too so I'll have that in the soap case. But I almost always have a bottle of water or more in my car and at times I've been on deliveries and really would prefer to wash my hands. So I put the soap in there. And I ended up using it quite a few times!! Sometimes I would get dirty money or touch someone's door knob or hand when giving them their prescription and I get back in my car and think wow, I would like to wash my hands because they feel cleaner than with hand sanitizer or with wipes. And so I would, in a parking lot of an apartment building and would be pouring water out on my hands. It worked. I would feel cleaner after wards. I have forks in my center console because sometimes I need a fork at work and they could be kept in there now instead of getting in my way in my console. That's all I can think of. I wish I had a trip planned somewhere now so I could use it for that. Lol. Also we're planning on moving for real this time so I need to start packing. Sigh. I just dread it.
The lighting outside is really good right now so I took Kreasy outside and thought I would try to take some actual decent looking photos of my nails. The photos are decent looking but my nails are not that great. But here hey are none the less.
I painted the base red and then drew on the white, black and the copper/gold on top. I should have done a white base then used tape and painted the red on. I think it would have looked better. The white is giving me problems at the tips. I think it's shrinking because of all the coats of top coat I used. The white is an old jet dry French tip white from loreal and is about 8 years old and when you use seche vite on dry nail polish, it shrinks. So I think that's what is happening on my tips. Insert sad face. I don't have a gold polish, just some glitter ones but they have other colors in them or the Sinful 24 karat one would be too pale. So I went with a copper color and it doesn't look that coppery like I thought. I really like the red for this and I like that it's sparkly like the belt buckle is and that the white and black are cremes. Over all I'm happy about how they look for my first attempt at Santa suit nail art.
Colors used: Sinful Red Eye, Sinful Black on Black, Loreal French tip white and Sally Hansen Chop Chop Chopper (I think ?)
Time to go check the mail.
Which means the new year is almost here. Which means that it's almost time to make a resolution list. I'm pretty sure I can't cross anything off of the one for 2013 but I'll have to look and see. Some of the things I know will be on 2014's list will include paying off some debt, reenrolling at fgcu and finishing my degree and improving on cleaning. I did a pretty good job at improving on that last one this year. But this house is too big and my health gets in the way of me cleaning it how I would prefer. Also the pets interfere with it a lot too. No matter what I do, their horrible bathroom habits get in the way. So next year we will hopefully be living in a smaller place with tile floors. Those two things will make the cleaning resolution easier to do. I also want to organize my stuff better. And this will probably require me to spend money on containers or a shelving unit. I will use what I have first though. I have the two while book cases and the bins that fit in the cubes but I don't really like them. I ended up throwing random stuff into the bins and nothing had a system. I would rather use one of the bookcases as an actual bookcase for my more recent books and my favorite old books. I also want to start reading again. I haven't read a book for a few months now. I was trying to read two books a month and I could start that this right now as I have a large stack of unread books.
I did a lot of cleaning today. Laundry, cleaning up pet poop, sweeping and mopping the floors. I ran out of the mop cleaning solution tonight though. Tomorrow I want to work on cleaning bathrooms. I also took out the garbage and recycling but forgot to take the big can to the street tonight. Oops.
I saw a blog post today about organizing a restaurant kit for babies and toddlers and she used a make up bag that has several zippered pockets. I have a travel kit very similar to her bag and now I'm brainstorming on what I can put in it. I bought it prior to our trip to Alaska but then had it packed away because I thought we were moving last year. And when it came time to pack for Alaska, I forgot all about it and so I never used it. And I still haven't used it. I think I could put together a car kit for me. I have all sorts of things I like to keep in my car to use when I'm at work or while on deliveries. And they all just sort of float around in the car and I have to search for it. Or I take it out and then need it in the car the following time I'm in my car.
I need to try to sleep now.
I have four days off. I need to be excited for this and do so much stuff around the house. I'll make lists tomorrow. I need to clean, do some online shopping. I need to work on a little bit of packing. I need to do my nails and do some crafty. I have so much free time.
I also need to work on making this blog pretty looking. I need to work on other pages for it too. And maybe I'll finally purchase a domain name. I told J though he should buy me a domain name for Christmas. I also need to make my wordpress blog pretty too. I have a few pages there but I need some here. And I need to make tags so that everything can be in categories.
I need tags for pictures, medical, craft/DIY, nail polish, moving. I want to make an about me section page. And I need to decide what, if any, topics I want my two blogs to be about. Right now I just kind spew words on anything in my life on my both blogs. I started this one to talk wedding planning on here but then I like to ramble so I started rambling on here and now there's no wedding planning going on here.
I need to figure out what kind of light I need to be able to photograph my nails better. It's so hard to take good pictures, the phone always makes everything yellow looking. And even sitting in the rooms, it's hard to see and I can't even tell what colors are what because it looks dark and even yellow in person.
This week has been frustrating at work. It's finally all over and I don't go back to work until Sunday morning.
I,need,to do some online shopping tomorrow. I need to do lots of cleaning this weekend. I also have two big empty boxes that I can pack stuff in. I wonder if there is any packing tape in the house.
I'm driving tomorrow to my doctors appointments and it's next door to a Walgreens so maybe I'll buy packing tape then.
I need to sleep.
Im slightly optimistic about the vinegar and baking soda in the hallway. At least on the odor part. It smells better and I only did small spots when it's like the entire hallway.
I painted my nails this light pale glitter gold color. It's from the sinful holiday display. I might do something still with some green polish. But not sure what. I kind of like the gold polish by itself. I didn't think I would. I only bought it because it's a Christmas color. I've been buying a lot of reds and golds just for that reason. I have a green and white glitter and a red and white glitter that I bought from a Sally Hansen display and was going to use the green and white glitter but then couldn't decide on a background color for it. I don't know how it would look on gold. Maybe I'll try to paint a tree.
Work was okay today. I was in cosmetics then hallmark and then I went home.
I was sitting in the tv room and J comes in there and asks me to come look at Sylar, that something is wrong. I go in there and there was blood on the counter (here we go again with him on the counter) but J couldn't find where it was coming from. We looked and looked and couldn't see anywhere on him that it came from. He has sores all over him that are crusty from the fleas but they weren't like bleeding profusely or at all. And everything is always just crusty, it's never like a deep cut, it's just on the top layer of skin. But this was a lot of blood so it was very odd. I looked and looked and looked and there wasn't even any blood on his fur.
Also- HE NEEDS A BATH. And flea medicine. His neck is all crusty and I'm afraid if I put it on him it'll just hurt him. But what else can I do?!
I am so tired, I think it's time to get ready for bed. The dog is staring at me to take him outside. I took him outside last night and he just ran around trying to chase an animal.
And I was going to. Instead I started looking up vintage nail polish. I wish I hadn't thrown away so many of my old nail polishes. I only have a few left. And I'm glad I didn't throw them all away. I found out that they can be restored.
I'm not sure about my nail art plans. My thumb nails are going to break too. And I don't like to call attention to my nails when they're short and/or different lengths. I don't even like to paint them dark colors right now either. I would just use light colors right now normally. But today is green. I'm not sure what I'm going to do right now. I want to at least have Christmas colors all month. Especially since I've been buying colors just for December.
I broke a nail tonight. I'm supposed to be starting 12 days of Christmas nail art tomorrow. This sucks.
I'm in the middle of a post but I didn't want to finish it tonight. But I had a few things I did want to post tonight so it's a separate post.
J made scrambled eggs for me tonight. And he washed dishes today and cleaned the counters and stove. He's also been cleaning the tub in the 3rd bathroom. Which I'm really glad because it was really really really disgusting. It has a clog somewhere and had been full of standing water for I don't know how long. We had no idea it was like that until P moved out and I was like noooooooo, who's going to clean that. And then I just ignored it and surprisingly J has been working on it!
Okay, it's time for sleep.
