Crammed Pack and Busy

The end of May snuck up on me before I realized it. I spent it down in my fiance’s neck of the woods, meeting family, friends, and doing all of the sight seeing. So, I got in Thursday evening and then Friday we hit Universal Studios in Orlando. It was amazing. We explored two of their park areas (not the waterpark, but that’s on the next set of choices in future trips). We did King Kong, Jurassic Park, and spent a ton of time in the Wizarding World and Diagon Alley. Diagon Alley was probably my favorite. read more

December Crochet Crazy

This is a post that’s been a while in the making. It’s been taking me a bit to pull the photos from my camera and then sit down and actually look at posting them up. These were gifts that I gave to family and one was for a white elephant.

I made a unicorn for my sister. read more

Hopes and Dreams

This last week was a long week. I had back to back meetings and then our major programmatic meeting at the end of the week. Thankfully, Friday wrapped up early (by noon) and I was able to take care of a few in office things and kind of unwind for a bit. I’ve also taken a much needed four day weekend (because why would anyone go in after two days off, work one day, get the next day off, then work the rest of the week)… 4th of July lands on a Tuesday, and I honestly would rather have consecutive days off. So I took monday for myself. Now I’m just kind of doing random things and playing with creative things. read more

Much Belated Happy New Year

My sister came to visit and then I like fizzled out. I think I did pretty good last month with nearly writing something every single day. We did a lot of things though and I still managed to catch a stomach virus the last two days of my vacation as well. Yay! Holidays! read more

Day 13

We did holiday stuff at work today (between all of my other appointment things). But, I ended up at work for nearly two hours passed my normal scheduled hours. Crazy crap. Bleh. I really am not looking forward to tomorrow, and I’m hoping it won’t be overly painful and exhausting. If I end up not writing tomorrow, I completely and utterly went brain dead. read more

The Worst Way

…to spend Christmas is heaving over a toilet. I don’t know if it was something I ate, a 24-hour bug, something caught from a friend a week earlier, but it has been a really long time since I’ve puked my guts out. I wish I could say it was because I party hard the night before, but I’m seriously an old woman who really doesn’t do that anymore. read more
