I'm beat!

Well for having no plans all weekend I sure worked my butt off! I literally spent all weekend working on selling fabric & stuff. I got a lot of stuff sold and took it to the post office today but it doesn't even look like I made a dent. Can't quite figure that out..

I love that I can just drop my packages off at the counter and don't have to wait in line. Too bad I don't live in town where they can just come pick it up at my house. I do take some to get picked up with the mail at work sometimes but I don't like to do too many since the poor mail man would have to carry them.

I got an order on Friday for some trailer mug cozies, I had to sew 2 up (already had them cut out) but I was so busy all weekend I didn't get to them until tonight. Going throw in the trailer key fob since the lady liked my stuff so much :)

I need to pack up someone's order from the FB group where I sell my fabric stuff then I'm going to bed. I'm so tired. My hips and back are hurting, probably from sitting so much.

Oh I almost forgot I took Trevor to get a few more things for school yesterday. He's now like his dad where we just have to hunt for the larger sizes first, then see if they are something he likes. TG for the internet. Need to get that kid to shop for some clothes online. 

Work was boring as shit again today. I miss the busy season. Also I wish Berkeley mom was retiring soon. Just the sound of her voice makes me want to go smack her lately.

Happy No Plans Weekend!

Ahh so excited to not have any plans this weekend. Although at some point someone needs to take Trevor to the store to get some school stuff and a few more shirts. Hoping to get someone else to do that.

Last night I had the weirdest thing happen. I was looking at my phone and it got all wavy like. At first I thought it was my contacts so I took them out but it was still doing it. I was also making dinner so when I got to a stopping point I went and laid down for a minute and it stopped. Always something I swear.

Then after dinner I had total indigestion which I'm sure was from eating hot cheetos on the way home from work lol. Look what happens when I eat the Pepto tablets now. So gross.

Last night I finished watching the new season of Shameless. Totally hated the whole Ian story line, but I know that stuff ready does exist. One of the kids that hangs out with us was sent to a camp to make him ungay (didn't work lol) People are just crazy.

After I finished that I started on Insatiable. It amazes me how people were all up in a roar about this show. So far it's pretty good.

So this weekend's goal is to get rid of the boxes of "stuff" in my living room. Which is fabric and notions that I have picked up here and there. It's hard to part with stuff I maybe want to keep but I have no where to put everything.

Happy Saturday!

New Computer Fun

Woohoo I'm up and running!

I got my new computer yesterday but only had a few minutes to play with it before it was time to leave for bingo.

My old computer loaded up a little bit but then I accidentally unplugged it and now it won't load again. Darn. Might see if someone wants to try and extract the pictures I had on their for me. Most of my pictures are on FB or my blog or both so I don't think I've lost anything too important.

I'm trying to decide if I want to get rid of the cabinet that the desktop computer is in. I'll have to find somewhere to put my printer and router though. Did think about maybe moving my sewing desk in it's spot. That would make more room in my bedroom but then I'd definitely have to sew in the living room so maybe not. I like to be able to close the door when Scott is annoying me when he's yelling at the TV. Yeah definitely not doing that.

Since my check register was on my dead computer I had to recreate something to keep track of my bills on. I had a really old version of Quicken on my computer. I'm just going to try a spreadsheet and a calendar since that's basically what it is. I just spent forever going through my bank to make sure I got all my automatic withdrawal things added.  Remember the days when we just wrote checks for everything and used a paper check register?

I was thinking yesterday about how we used to "float" a check at the grocery store before payday. I used to do that all the time. Then Wal Mart got some scanner thing that made your check go through faster so I quit doing that lol. I think Scott is one of the only people that still gets a paper paycheck. I finally got him to deposit it on his phone instead of having to ride his bike to the bank on his lunch. So much easier.

I've literally spent all day looking at spreadsheets today. I've been working on my little side business record keeping. I'm up to May! I need to find a few note books where I wrote down how much cash I made at my booth sales. I think I know where they are..

I've been driving Trevor to school all week for his 0 period class. We have to leave the house around 6:40. That seems so early. Today he said that he only has to do it MWF now. He was going to take the bus which used to show up around 7:10 most days. Today we got there at 7 and it was long gone so I had to drive him to school. DOH! I guess it's actually coming at like 6:50 now so I won't get to sleep any longer either way! At least if he takes the bus that's less miles on the car.

I've been attempting to not eat flour and sweets much. Yesterday I went to Bingo thinking I wouldn't have any drinks. One of my friends was there wanting to buy me drinks so that I will hem her dress. I gave in (to a couple) and she ordered FLOUR tortilla chips and set them next to me. I have no willpower SIGH. 

I may have also ate 2 pieces of pizza when I got home from work today. Good thing tomorrow is a new day.

Back To School

Well today is the first day of school! I think it gets earlier in the summer every year. My plan was to get up when Scott left for work today, but then he left an hour early which messed up my plan in my head. I tried to go back to sleep but it smelled so bad outside (I had my windows open). I don't think I ever really fell back to sleep and got up at 5:20.

I drove this guy to school since he has a 0 period class and there is no bus for that. It was kind of nice having time in the car with him, although I'm sure after the first couple days we'll be dragging ass to get up in the morning lol. I'm so not a morning person!

We had a busy weekend. Saturday was Adrian's birthday party. Her birthday isn't until Sept 11 but her mom is having a baby on August 25th. We decided to skip the bowling part of the party and just go to the part back at the house. She is going to be 9 already.

Yesterday we went to the A's game. We took Bart, then tailgated with the neighbors in the parking lot. We sat in the inside seats by the window.

Only I could get sunburnt sitting INSIDE at a ball game lol. I think the sun was only on me for maybe an hour. I was a little cold so it felt good. Little did I know it was burning me.

The game was a pretty quick one since the other team didn't get any runs. Trevor went with us to the game and thought it was pretty sweet sitting inside the fancy club room, I did too!

There is this neighborhood girl that people call "Drunk Debbie" (change her name, but you get the picture). She came in when the game was about 1/2 way through or so. She is such a loud mouth. Total low class. I guess she made some comments to Scott about his legs. He is NOT impressed with her lol. It just amazes me that people can be so rude and think they know what they are talking about when they comment on other people's medical problems. Like no one is telling you to get your brain fixed you idiot.

I was glad to leave right after the game was over. They were doing some kind of after party in the parking lot. It amazes me sometimes how much people can drink and still function and definitely should NOT be driving anywhere. That is why we take the train. We only had a little bit to drink when we were tailgating and that was enough. All these people are going to need new livers soon.

So trying to get back on the healthier eating wagon. I'm going to do no flour or sweets for the rest of the month to start. That will help me get away from my sugar addiction hopefully. Seemed to work last time. I felt so fat yesterday. I've got that huge roll on top of my pants back, it's lovely.

Just ordered a new computer (laptop) so hopefully that will come in the next couple days. I keep hoping I can get my Quicken to load my calendar with my bills on it but it doesn't look that that's going to happen. Guess I'll have to just figure that out again. Good thing I had paid everything early last week.

Have a good day everyone!

Well I think my computer has finally bit the dust. Looks like I’ll have to go buy a laptop or something. I do kind of like having a desk top though since it’s less likely for the kid to kill it.

This is where I always feel old. I don’t know what all that crap is in the computer I just want to turn t on and have all my stuff there.

Using my phone to post and it’s tiny so just an update of one more thing to spend money on lolPin It

iCloud Educated

Woohoo I finally figured out how to delete pictures off my iCloud. Thanks Google. Now my phone can finally stop screaming at me that it hasn't backed up my pictures. I take a lot of pictures of misc things and things to sell so I definitely don't need to pay for storage on a bunch of stupid pictures.

Today's work excitement was that I actually got to go out in the field. I haven't done that in ages. When I first started my job I used to spend all day driving around looking for orchard chippings. Today a gal at worked asked me if I could help her out and do 2 drive bys.

Yep, that's corn

Yep, corn there too.

She said something about having me do a few tomorrow. Let's hope there is enough to last all day lol. So funny just went back and looked for blog posts of the olden days at work. Found lots of funny posts. Might have to do a Peggy and share some of them again. I used to really just type out whatever I was thinking back when I first started blogging with no filter. Those were the days when the internet was newer and not as many people could find your stuff lol.

Pictureless Day

I didn't take any pictures today, how strange! Remember when you had to actually use a camera to take pictures and then wait forever to get the pictures. Maybe that's what's wrong with society today, we have no patience ;)

I spent most of the day today uploading pictures from my phone to Facebook. Apparently that's really annoying to all your facebook friends. Whoops. So now all my albums are just for me to see until I get done playing around with them.

I'm so tired of seeing the "icloud is full" message so and I'm sure my computer is going to die at some point so taking advantage of FB's free storage while it lasts. I deleted all but about 20 pictures and my icloud is still full so I'm assuming that has to update somehow. So now I'm updating my IOS which probably means that something will kill my phone. I try to wait as long as possible to do the updates. Last time I tried it failed because my "icloud was full" lol so we'll see what happens now. I really don't want to pay ANYTHING more a month for my phone since I already have a car payment size bill.

Work was so dead today I had like 2 things to do. Save one for tomorrow lol. The girl who sits next to me was having stomach issues and stayed all day. I kept hoping she'd just leave because that's the worst thing to have happen at work. She has some stomach issue history but she drinks a couple gallons of caffeine every day and takes a bunch of pills all the time so it's not like she's trying to keep it away.

After work I ran to the little mexican grocery store down the street from work and got something to take to Bingo since it was potluck night. I didn't win anything all night. Some days you win, some days you lose I guess.

Oh here's a fun picture I saw going around today. It has something about a Proposition 10 that I need to look at still. I just looked up a 1 bedroom apt in Tracy and the lowest one I found was $1350 for an apartment building that my sister in law rented for $500 a month 18 years ago. So yeah that was awhile but that also means they are OLD. My kids are going to live here forever, who can afford to move out?

Registration Day

Well Trevor made it through registration day without me. Nice to have a big sister that can take him :) They tried to give him the same horrible math teacher he had last year but the kids got it changed. YEAH!

He had a friend come home with him after registration and hang out. I got some pizzas and smores stuff on the way home. Sadly the boy's dad got here before the fire got going. Trevor and I sat out by the fire and had a couple and Melissa eventually came out to join us. Jessica is at work and Scott was too busy watching baseball.

Here's the prices for school stuff this year. He got a lanyard, PE sweatpants, PE Shirt and a yearbook. Over $100. That's not adding in the bus ($180 for a semester), pictures $30 something for a couple small ones and $95 we had to pay for a book that some kid stole out of a shared locker space in a classroom.

I went to lunch at the little mexican place down the road from work today. They make the tortillas fresh on that round thing. Yummo

Fire pit picture. I smell like a dirty fire pit now.

Up late since I had to pay some bills before bed. I was looking through some papers and found the car registration that I thought was due at the end of the month. It's due on the 2nd. Good thing I was going through those papers! 

This evening I've been working on taking some older pics off my phone. Mostly uploading them to FB (and the computer) in case the computer crashes. I'm sick of seeing that my icloud is full. I'm not paying MORE money . I'll just delete a few things!

Geeze these people make me so stressed out.

Tomorrow is Trevor's registration day for school. Basically they do all that stuff we did on the first day of school a week before school starts. Talk about stupid. Melissa is taking him so I had to get everything ready. This year they want them to do all the paperwork stuff online which is great except it seems to me that one portion isn't working. Hopefully they let him register with how it is because I've tried 3 different computers and don't see anywhere I can put in my emergency contact info.

Only have to do this 2 more times and I'm done woohoo.

I just got home from Bunco (I got 3 but the winner had 5!) and went to try and log onto my computer and it was just a black screen with an arrow. After two tries I got that to log on. I should probably work on backing my stuff up somehow..

Meanwhile Scott is just talking to the baseball game non stop. So annoying.

So how did I do on my weekend to do list?

  • sell a box of fabric (omg I have so much shit here I need another house)
    • That didn't happen
  • finish my little fabric bunting that is all pinned together
    • DONE

  • put away at least one basket of clothes 
    • Scott actually put away ALL the baskets of clothes WITHOUT ME ASKING and vacuumed our bedroom. I'm pretty sure he must be sick. I don't think he's EVER vacuumed our bedroom before.
  • list a few things on Etsy
    • That didn't happen
  • sew a few more things
    • Totally worked on key fobs all weekend. I had a bunch that were all ready to be finished. Before I had sewn them all together except for the last couple steps.

     I got a few more that were partially done but didn't take a picture of those yet.

    In between sewing I went to my brother's house for his birthday. I actually got in the pool since it's like 150 outside. Believe it or not his pool water was still super cold. I didn't stay in too long.

    I did take one picture of the birthday boy AND the dog! I tried to get pictures of her but I startled her and she kept hiding from me lol. She so dang cute. Her name is Sadie and she's a goldendoodle.

    I MAY have finished out the evening at the bar. Jessica and I left Scott at home since we had already listened to him talk to the stupid baseball game all the way home in the car. I can only take so much talking to the baseball game.

Sunday I had book club at my mom's place. I had to pick up Marian and take her back home. Poor girl didn't even remember that I had called her at 1:30 to tell her I'd be picking her up around 2. Luckily her neighbor was there and she was already to go. 

Oh and Friday night I noticed an ad on Facebook for the Lodi Street Fair and I signed up to be a vendor. It's in October. It's a little bit expensive to sign up but my friend said in May they had about 30 THOUSAND people show up. Woohooo. I'm pretty excited about that. So I'll be sewing my little heart out until then ;) The booth sizes are a bit bigger too, 13x13 so I want to play around with the layout a bit to figure out how to maximize that. 

Well I'm ready for bed. I could barely get up this morning. I've been having some really vivid dreams lately. So weird. I just asked Scott if I yelled at him when he left this morning because I was totally pissed off at him in my dream haha. 

Nighty Night!

Why is it already 7pm? Slow down weekend, I need to cherish you!

I feel like I need to make myself some goals for this weekend. 

  • sell a box of fabric (omg I have so much shit here I need another house)
  • finish my little fabric bunting that is all pinned together
  • put away at least one basket of clothes 
  • list a few things on Etsy
  • sew a few more things
Today we got invited to go to my brother's house for his birthday tomorrow so we'll do that in the late afternoon/evening. Sunday I have book club for a book I haven't read yet. Whoops. I haven't actually read a book in months. I'm that person that just goes to book club for the wine and snacks now.

Last night I found the top of the kitchen table per request from Jessica. Now everything is everywhere else ;) The problems of too many projects and a small house. Sigh. 

Then since I was trying not to deal with all my crap I told the kids I was going to go out on the paddle boat and 2 of them followed (plus one companion). Sadly the grassy weeds are taking over the lake again. They are going to put something in it to treat them again I guess. I heard it's like $3500. Well worth it though since it makes the lakes so icky and that's our main attraction.

Anyhow, we went around in circles in the middle. The paddle boat is so hard to steer. I think it needs to be greased up or something. Trevor went in the canoe with my friend Traci (her canoe) and then we hung out on the dock and watched the sunset and chatted. Love dock nights.

ok off to read some blogs. I made pulled pork in the crock pot for dinner so that was easy :) Now I can relax until I get to work!
