Saturday, August 17, 2013

Today is my last free Saturday before I go back to work, ugh... I like my job, I really do I just hate the timing of it. I work part-time at a local college as weekend manager of a store on campus. That sounds so fancy doesn't it? I am the weekend manager of the Quickie Mart of my campus. We are a convenience store that sells more than your usual convenience store stuff. In addition to the usual crap we have lots of organic and natural foods. Big shoulder shrug... The college kids love our store and spend a lot of their dining money in my store. Unfortunately my schedule means I work every weekend. As a Mom the weekends are the fun times. That's when the sleepovers happen, the festivals happen, and the staying up late watching movies happen. I miss that, a lot. I'm there for the weeknights, when homework has to be done, they have after school activities and go to sleep on time. Sometimes I get so jealous of my husband being able to do the fun stuff with the spawn. However no money has dropped from the sky into my lap so I will be reporting back to work on Friday.

So what's up blog? Today has been a fun day of listening to recordings on the phone and trying to get through to actual people. Is it really that hard to talk to a person? Anyhow, I am also trying to come up with some new concepts of what I want to do crafting-wise. I would really like to get back into trying to sell my crafts and be able to quit my part-time job to do that full time. Well, when I am not being a full-time Mom of course. I need to update my etsy store and get this going!
I have missed having this outlet and am glad to be back....

Where did that chick go?

Hello Blogland!!! I am alive and sort of well! Yes I last posted in October. No, nothing major happened, just life got in the way. As another blogger stated, I don't have any advertisers and don't have to write this blog, so it's okay for my to take a break when I need it. I am hoping I can catch up and get back on track with writing this blog.
So how have you been? I have been busy as always. My family keeps growing up quickly and marching through life. Crafting keeps me sane and helps with the depression that loves to grow in the winter time. Sometimes I think I should move somewhere warm year round... However right now I have my windows thrown open and the fresh spring air is flowing through my house. I am even inspired to go get some Mrs. Meyer's and start some spring cleaning!
I have been on a jewelry kick lately. I love wearing noisy and bright jewelry. It makes me smile! I'm only 40 but I plan on being the kooky old lady who never matches!
So dearest blog, I am sorry I neglected you for so long and I hope to not let that happen again!

A Cure, for right now at least!

I am healing from a NASTY stomach bug or food poisoning or something.  Whatever it was it started late Saturday night.  I was either puking or sleeping or crying for the next 2 days.  Luckily the puking stopped late Sunday but the exhaustion continued until Monday.  When I say exhaustion I mean I COULD NOT wake up for anything, and I kept having crazy dreams.  Ugh!  It was awful!  SO whenever I get sick my depression loves to pop up and shake it's ugly ass for me.  Then the little beast worms around in my thoughts and tries to make me feel crazy.  It was successful.  Most of yesterday I spent crying and thinking depressing thoughts.  I know it's because I was sick, I missed one day of my meds and I am still recovering.  That doesn't make it easier to deal with though.  So today I discovered the cure for me, at least for now.  I went on You Tube and listened to a lot of angry rock music, ahh soothing for my soul!  I have no idea why it worked but I am feeling normal now and, dare I say, hopeful!  So blog here's a good tune to rev you up!

Weekend Off!

For the first time in 2 months I have this weekend off! Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the Richmond folk festival, one of my absolutely FAVORITE festivals in the RVA. I will be going to the mountains and going to a college tour with my oldest son. I am looking forward to seeing the beautiful blue ridge mountains and their fall colors that are starting.
(not my picture but it does look like that)

This will be my first college tour with my son and I can't wait to see what it's like. I did go to college, but only one year and I really don't remember much about it. My husband opted for the military instead of college. So for the two of us, it's a new experience. My son is excited but nervous. There is a lot for him to do to get into college, and he's not even sure where he wants to go or what to study. He's also mentioned working in the Peace Corp for a year then going to college. So we will see what the future brings. The rest of the spawn are looking forward to hanging out with Grandad.
So what are your plans for the weekend?
