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

Cozy Chic Cardi

I really didn’t mean not to write for several weeks. I’ve just been caught up with life, which, honestly, is a good thing. I am also now bound and determined to conquer the art of crocheted clothing. I have some work to do on that front. This is the fourth item I’ve made (that’s not a shawl, scarf, wrap, etc). And I made a too big size. However, my sweetheart was kind enough to model. read more

Day 6

I’ve been thinking heavily about things I want to accomplish in the future. There’s artsy things I want to do more of and there’s future crafting business things I want to attempt, there’s a ton of books I want to read (several self help), there’s financial security in things too. It helps that I’m finally becoming more unburdened by previous financial obligations and am close to being free of divorce debt. read more

In Love

One of my biggest complaints about my last job is that I was extremely bored. It drives me nuts to be bored. Its not that I didn’t have anything to do, but it was just slow. And I had a hard time waiting on things to get finished. I like something that’s constant with a few breaks for breathing. I also didn’t have final say on things and I wasn’t working with a team. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to meet a timeline and have something held up for review that shouldn’t of taken long to review. read more

Change

I had a ton of emotions hit me this week and a ton of changes that seem to keep happening. The divorce from my ex was approved and I finally received the final paperwork. I left my old job last week and started my new job this week. We also had a firm house offer, so I’m waiting for that to finalize (in about another month). With everything catching up, I feel like I’m starting to fall under the weather. Sore throat this evening, meh. read more

Hell of a Week

When it rains, it pours.

I am now the happy owner of a Toyota Rav4. Suzie the Subaru had two cracked head gaskets and was spewing coolant all over the place. I won’t go into the why’s because it doesn’t matter now, but I will say that I’m glad I didn’t push it with her and just took her to the shop shortly after my engine was smoking from being on the highway. Needless to say, I do firmly believe that if things had been done regularly with it as was their job (since they refused to help me with the housework), I probably could of lasted a few more months before problems started. read more
