This morning I woke up and realized my cat Lucy never came to bed. Usually she sleeps with me and usually ON me at some point. I went to check on her and she's still in the same spot as last night. I think she isn't giving this spot up because Tina likes it too. This is the baby's extra car seat base with my blanket my grandma made me on top. Perfect cat bed apparently haha.

Woo wee kind of on a whim yesterday I decided to put some random stuff in my sewing room on a sale/destash group on Facebook.
I have sold so much stuff! I love when that happens. Now if everyone pays it will be great. I finally caught up on getting it all packed up and invoices sent so now I need to go back and do the shipping labels for the stuff people have paid for.
This is mostly just random stuff that I have picked up at thrift stores/marketplace sales/neighbors etc that came with OTHER stuff I actually wanted. So I of course now am like gathering more stuff to sell but first I need to get this other stuff going out the door.
So nice to clear stuff out and organize a bit more. Last night I was actually able to get into the closet area which has been barricaded with crap. Well part of the closet area, still working on that ;)
Tina was very helpful and knocked over my stuff like THREE times, huge messes.
While I was working my light bulb in the room went out. I was like crap do I even have anymore light bulbs? Luckily there was some random bulb and when I put it in I was like OMG everything is a different color in here. Much better! I want to get a ceiling fan to put in here soon for when it starts heating up.
Ok off to print some labels! Woooohoo plus this is like free money to buy more good stuff ;)
Hope you all have a great day!Pin It

Good morning! It's Monday again ugh why can't we have 3 day weekends every week?
This is Trevor's last week of being 17 and my last week of having any minor children! Isn't that crazy? His birthday is Sunday. Not sure what he wants to have for dinner yet :)
Friday night I went for my walk by myself, stopped at Jessica's in the middle and got sucked into a movie they were watching and then walked home in the dark lol. Here is a picture of the river from the levee close to Jessica's house (my mom's cabin that she is renting)
I usually start my walks by taking the dogs around the block. Snookie keeps refusing to walk after a bit. This is her face while I'm carrying her. Smug little bitch!

Good morning! TGIF! How are you all doing today? Weekend plans? Of course I have none, although I am starting to want to work on the front yard again. I want to change it up a little, although now it is just a mess so it is really like starting over again on one said at least. Looks like it might rain a bit this morning and then just be mid 60's low 70's for the rest of the week. Looks like Texas is getting more snow today and then back to their regular weather. All those poor people. I wonder what it is going to be like once the snow melts, rivers running down the roads?
Yesterday was pretty blah until after work when I went for a walk with my friend Cassi. I didn't really want to go but I did anyway and then I felt like a new person.

Good morning Happy Thursday! I kind of feel like I already did half the day since I was wide awake from 2-5:30am until Scott got up and stopped breathing on me.
On the plus side I finally passed that level I was stuck on on the game Match 3D.
Yesterday was just so sad and miserable. I don't want to have to do that again for a very long time. These remaining animals better live a long time. Poor Buster didn't go down without a fight. Melissa and I have very puffy eyes today. Here is a picture from awhile back before he got so scruffy. My little Pirate kitty.

Good morning happy hump day!
I was a good girl yesterday and finally put away some clean clothes that I had been ignoring, did some laundry (more to do today), had Jessica be my personal grocery shopper, went for a walk, made dinner and did all the dishes! Then I went to bed early lol. Of course then I woke up at 3am until like 4:30am but did fall back to sleep later.
I actually made a menu for meals again with recipes so that I will actually want to cook. It is a lot more fun to do it that way then be like ugh it's 5:00 what am I going to make for dinner.
Last night I tried this recipe for Garlic and Paprika Chicken mine didn't look like the picture but it was still good. I always take the skin off the chicken since that is how I grew up and it seems so gross to leave it on now. Originally I got this recipe from another page but they said the recipe was from Jo Cooks. The recipe I used left out the part about cooking it partially on the stove first. Maybe that's why the picture looks so much different!

Good morning! It's Tuesday but my Monday since I had yesterday off.
Super tired and grouchy feeling this morning. I actually went to be early last night and fell asleep for an hour or so and then I woke up and couldn't go back to sleep forever. Scott was still playing video games at midnight. I was like are you going to work tomorrow? Sheesh.
One thing I didn't think about when he put that TV on the wall is that it is in my line of sight from where I sleep. I can't just shut the door because then the animals want in or out 5000 times and that is even worse.
I did a lot of sewing over the weekend and walked every day but yesterday. I got a new fitbit but I currently have it off because it keeps flashing/buzzing DND which is pretty freaking annoying. I can't figure out how to get it to stop doing that yet. I looked it up and other people had the same complaint. It stopped doing it after a bit yesterday so maybe it will be done soon lol.
Here is the yellow mixed with the yellow/orange squares. It is still small so it will need some borders. I set it aside for now. I'll come back to it later lol

Woohooo we made it to Friday!
Can someone tell me why my dog thinks he needs to go out the moment my ass hits my work chair? Sooo annoying. I think he's just making it up but he won't leave me alone until I take him out.
Yesterday I got my walk in and was safely in the house before it started raining. I attempted to use Runkeeper to see how far I went (always in a competition with myself) but apparently you have to pay for it now for it to track the mileage. Still debating if I want to do that or not but I did order a Fitbit. My friend sent me a $40 gift card to Dick's Sporting Goods so I put that towards it. Just one of the cheaper ones but it will do the job.
I worked on my yellow strip square blocks some more last night. I used up all the base squares I sew the strips to so I will have to cut some more to finish off my roll.

Good morning! My internet is painfully slow this morning. It's ok I didn't want to work anyways. Luckily it is the slower time for me at the moment.
I went into work at noon yesterday and stayed until 4. I stopped at the good burrito place for lunch but the line was out the door so I just went through the drive thru at Carl's Jr's instead. I think most of the staff at Carl's Jr does not speak English as their first language. This place is on the corner of a busy street and it is so hard to understand what they are saying through the little box.
At work I got my letters printed out and mailed off then cleaned up the desk I've been working on. Shredded a box of papers and all those old checks of Scott's I am always finding around the house. Cloroxed the desk and filed all the papers I can never find folders for. If I couldn't find the file I put it on the desk of the person in charge of the file. They can put it away after I've tried like 10 times.
After work I went for a little walk. I have told myself I need to try and walk for at least 30 minutes a day. I am really getting out of shape just sitting in the house all day every day. My hips were hurting so bad just from vacuuming for 10 minutes the other day. Of course Rusty some how knows when I am going to go for a walk and is relentless about going too. The dogs can't walk very far though (probably from just being in the house so long) so I just took them on a short walk and then dropped them off at home and went back out for a few more minutes for myself.
Just walking my little area of the neighborhood was so depressing. So many houses and yards are just falling apart. I don't know if people just don't have the money, the time or the man power to fix things but it is looking sad out there. I know I need to work on my yard too.
Look at this street sign down the street from my house. It is no wonder delivery drivers can't find our houses.
One of the houses down the street has a full on casket in their front yard. What the actual hell? That same house has a roof that can't possibly be keeping the rain out. I was complaining about the casket on FB and one of the board members actually went and took a picture and sent it to me today. I find it kind of crazy that no one has complained about this but me? It was laying flat when I saw it yesterday but propped up this morning. I'm sure that would kill a child if it fell on them. Hopefully the board can get them to get rid of it.
Anyhow when Scott got home I asked him if he could please work on getting that piece of shit car that does not belong to us gone by June 1st. I figure that is plenty of time. It has been here for about 9 years now. I think that is long enough. If it is still here I'm going to work on getting it towed. I'm tired of playing around with it. Either take it where it goes or it's going. Also asked him about what he wanted to do with the boat we haven't taken out in like 15 years. Instead of just trying to give it away for free he wants to take the engine out? And cut it up? and put it in the trash can? What the actual fuck. Men are stupid.
Then he tells me why do I have to bombard him with all this at once right now. I asked him when would be a good time and he didn't have an answer. After he's dead and I have to deal with it I guess.
Why do we think it is such a good idea to get married?
So I retreated to my sewing room and finished making my yellow strips with the leftover scraps and made 2 squares. I wasn't really feeling like working on them though so that is all I got done and then I just went to bed and looked at Tik Tok until I fell asleep.
