This might be a long one, so I apologize in advance. I will try to keep it as short as possible.
A few weeks ago, I found out that a close family friend had passed away and, in the same night, a guy I knew from high school passed away. I held up pretty well, given that I did not spend a whole lot of time with these two individuals, but it really hit hard yesterday. Read the rest of this entry →
You might have noticed that I have not posted since day 18 of the October Writing Challenge. That was due to working and being in a wedding. It was my very dear friend, and fellow blogger, Jess’ wedding. You can visit her page here.
Day 18 was the bachelorette party and I did post afterwards.
Day 19 was “Let’s see how much of the house I can clean and sanitize before people come over.” Cym and I were both in the wedding and she was sleeping over because the wedding was in the early after noon and she would have to get up while it was still dark to make it to the wedding. Then it was off to the rehearsal, setting up for the wedding, and then rehearsal dinner. Read the rest of this entry →
Today was rough. I thought I was going to leave work early because I had a 2 hour meeting scheduled on my day off. But about an hour and a half before I was going to head out, the meeting got cancelled. I missed out on a nap.
I then went to a very low key bachelorette party. We sat around talking and sharing stories, eating, watching The Princess Bride. I had to call it a night very early on, but other people had work in the morning anyway. It was very nice to get out and hang out with friends.
Wow! 17 days of posts. I only missed 1 post, but made that up. I almost missed tonight’s post, too. I came home exhausted, got dinner, and then a friend came over to watch a movie with my finace and I.
Let’s just say, the first bit of The Conjuring 2 was scary, and it was made 10x scarier by our friend’s comments. Otherwise, it was a disappointing movie and I thought The Conjuring was scarier. I don’t get scared easily by horror movies. So far, out of the ones I have watched, Creep (2004), Sinister (2012), and The Conjuring (2013) got to me.
When my fiance came home from work tonight I told him what I was watching and that I don’t care what plans he had, I was going to finish it (I’m using Netflix on Xbox). He was a little disappointed, but what he doesn’t know is that I will probably watch this every day until they take it off Netflix.
Also, since I had to pick him up from work tonight, we narrowly missed being in an accident. I was at a red light. All of a sudden we hear a big bang and look around. I see the people in the car behind me get out and go to the back of their car. The car behind them had rear ended them. Thankfully, they didn’t hit hard because otherwise, I would have been roped into the accident. Because I have been in many car accidents, whenever I witness one (2 times this week by the way) or see one in a movie, I start freaking out and start having an anxiety attack. It sucks.
I am posting day 15 and day 16 tonight because I was so busy with laundry yesterday and had work last night. Then I had to be at work in the morning. On Sundays I usually come home, shower, and go straight to be so I can get at least 6 hours of sleep for my Monday shift.
However, I just discovered the 2017 Beauty And The Beast is on Netflix and I am distracted while writing this.
Big changes may be happening. I hope so. Whoever is reading this post, if you could cross your fingers for me that would be much appreciated. I really need this break in my life.
Last night my fiance and I stayed up talking about my dreams and hopes. He is very supportive and I am so thankful I have someone like him by my side. He listened to me, gave me ideas, and agreed to help keep me focused (which I’m really bad at). I told him my plans in detail so he could keep me on track, because he knows the track I want to be on.
For instance, I want to write this post, but he’s watching YouTube videos about video games and it’s so hard not to stop what I’m doing and watch, too. The only other room I can go into to have peace and quiet is poorly lit. However, soon, I will have a desk chair again and can use that to write! I will lock everyone out of that room while I am using it. I am looking forward to that more than you can imagine.
