By which I mean I said I was going to do a monthly blogging challenge and keep blogging daily and then I didn’t. What a big surprise there.
So, I took a few days off from blogging.
In that time I’ve had some really shitty days at work, two panic attacks, put up a Christmas tree, tore it down in a fit of rage, then put it back up again because I felt like the Grinch that stole Christmas. I’ve finished two scarfs for gifts, finished pretty much all of my shopping for Elise (including secret tickets to go see the Nutcracker ballet this coming Saturday!) and I’ve gotten hopelessly, can’tstopwon’tstop addicted to Sons of Anarchy.
Elise helped me out in the kitchen:
And I learned that Google + is even more awesome than I thought it was when I realized that if you take a lot of the same kind of picture and then set your phone to auto-upload all of your pics to your free Google storage drive, it automatically creates a gif for you.
Things have been Meh.
I’ve had a lot of car problems, had a lot of doom and gloom over Christmas, which I really don’t enjoy all that much, despite what I want people to think. Now that it’s almost the middle of December I’m looking forward to this year being over and being able to file my taxes, get my return, and get a new car. Then start planning a vacation to see my Grandparents in Florida if there is any money left over to do that, which there probably won’t be.
Sorry if you are reading. This is my memory keeper. I’ll put things here if they’re happening and true, and even if they suck.
I just keep on reminding myself to suck it up and put on a smile for my kid. She deserves it.
