Long Overdue

Hello world!

I have decided to make it my goal that I post at least once a week and try to get some life back into my blog. Unfortunately at this point I don’t have my  computer set up so I’m posting on mobile. Therefore you will have to forgive me for any over looked spelling or punctuation errors.

So, what’s new with me? Not terribly much. I’m still working full time as a FYI manager but I have also picked up two shifts a week bartending. That helps give me some fun money.

My birthday is in less than two weeks. It’s hard to believe that I will be 31. Being old is overrated. 

Beyond that Mr and I are getting ready for winter. Enjoying the warm days while we have them and opening the house as much as possible but also preparing our indoor spaces. I haven’t been upstairs painting since last spring. I’m hunting for a cheap but functional desk for my art room as well. We will see how that turns out..

M and I went to a dinner party last night and had a great time with two other couples. A veritable feast of smoked ribs, coleslaw, rolls, cauliflower, baby red potatoes and delicious cider. 

2Towns cider actually. I had the outsider and it was fantastic. It doesn’t hurt that it’s from Corvallis either. 

Mike gave me a birthday present early. A new tablet! Hooray! My life hasn’t been the same since my last tablet bricked last spring. It’s crazy to believe it’s been that long. 

Beyond that I haven’t much to share! I guess we will see what turns up next week. 

Small Town Big City

I would like to start this post by saying that I love my small town.

But I sure miss being able to drive two minutes and going to a department store or a mall. It’s not that I’m opposed to small businesses, quite the opposite, but there’s things I want that at this point I have to order online if I want it.

I prefer instant gratification.

It’s raining here. Like crazy a lot raining. The Scoot is parked under a tarp for now but at this rate I’m going to have to winterize her because I’m not riding in the rain. I don’t like slick roads. I do not want to wipe out.

Back to my original subject though.

I miss Sephora store😦😦

OH YEAH.

I have a room-mate now. Besides Michael. I’ve moved all the instruments out of the music room and up stairs to my craft room. It’s not as though I didn’t have space up here for them. It’s a friend of Michaels and he will be with us for two months.

Through all the holidays.

Yayy..

Vroom Vroooooom

My scooter.

Where do I start?

I love her and I love riding her to work. I don’t love people that drive too close to me, but I love that they cannot mistake me flipping them off and giving them dirt over the shoulder looks.

I love that she’s black and that my helmet is blue. I love that I’m going to get 120 MPG and my tank holds 1.3 gallons.

I love that insurance is super cheap for it.

I wish I could listen to music, but it’s better that I don’t.

Enough about my scooter though. Back to real life.

I’m absolutely struggling to write my Maid of Honor speech. I have started and scrapped every idea I’ve had. It’s go time. I need something. I don’t think my BFF would appreciate it me winging it either. Argh!

I only work two days this week and then it’s off to California. We’re driving. So basically I will be in town long enough for the rehearsal dinner and wedding. Oh well, it is what it is. One of these days I will be able to take a real vacation.

I got new earrings! Pretty silver and mother of pearl plugs. First new “permanent” jewelry I’ve had since 2010.

MONNNNDDAAAAY

Well actually it’s TUEEEESSSDDAAAAY.. but at my job it’s my “Monday” as in first day of the work week.

And it was brutal. I was super tired when I woke up but then it was slow and kind of anti-climatic at work. The day definitely drug along the last two hours.

But I haven’t smoked in almost 72 hours so that counts for something, right?

And I want a camera! I’m saving my pennies! There’s a few on my wishlist but man I wish I had one for my trip down to SC at the end of the month for my BFFs wedding.
