The New Year, the New You

Jan. 4th, 2012 | 10:56 am

Obligatory 6 month post go!

Things have been okay...ish.. though it's the winter blues, as you all know by now. Some things have changed, some things remain the same. Isn't that how it always is?

In 2 weeks, I'm flying to Austin, TX to watch Steam Powered Giraffe perform. I'm feeling...hmm, a bit nervous? about this trip. It'll be a weekend by myself, for the most part. Plenty of time to get into trouble. :3

BWahahaha. Or something.

We're going up to ALA on saturday to run the party for AC. That should be...fun?

Lapis is tall, and she talks...a lot.

People have been asking for the past few months when I'm going to have another one. WHEN I FEEL LIKE IT!

Cough.

Anyway. I'm cranky, and anxious and a mite lonely. But, the show must go on.

A Goodbye

Jul. 5th, 2011 | 01:47 am

For those of you who don't know, our cat Thomas passed away yesterday afternoon after dealing with a pretty nasty illness.

I'm sure he's in a better place now.

...It never gets any easier, does it?

I live

Just a general update I suppose.

Life goes as it ever did. Lapis is tall, it's hot, and SPG is awesome.

I guess that's it. Vague heartache but that is nothing new either. Catch you in six months.

Advent Calendar of Fail

Dec. 8th, 2010 | 02:48 am

Wintertime blues turn it up a notch during december for whatever reason. Things that have been making me stressed/upset has happened everyday this month. I'm hoping the advent calendar will just implode on itself as one of it's presents to me so I can go back to being just... me.

In other news, went to Loscon. Saw people I haven't seen in forever. Had a bit of fun. Lapis was a handful and changed her sleeping schedule on me. Conning with a baby isn't easy.

hum. Thanksgiving was all right. Both of them were. Food was good, but Lapis didn't get enough sleep Thanksgiving day so she was very fussy for the family. Oh well. Saw my great aunt. That was nice. We don't usually see her that often.

House is... lived in. I don't think we'll be decorating this year (which makes me a bit sad, but, whatever) so... there's that. I'm looking forward to whatever surprise pa has instore for me. (He's been surprising me every year since we've been together. Jerk.)

Pa also boughted me a corset so yay back support! It's a pretty dark purple. Like a plum color, but maybe not as red. huzzah

Really... just been tired all the time. Except for now, when I should be. Drinking some chamomile tea and seeing if that doesn't shut things down.

I guess that's it. see you in six months.

What? I exist?

Oct. 5th, 2010 | 10:30 am
mood: cold cold

Yeah, I totally exist, really.

Lapis is sitting in her highchair eating breakfast. I'm not doing a lot of things I should be doing. So very tired.

We've moved into a new place, which has made life 80 times player. Survived Conjecture, barely. Got class later today (taking Physics: Electricity and Magnetism)... should go to the store so I can begin the first House Stew. I'm getting the itch to cook.

Lapis looks tired. I am tired.

I dunno. nothing is really going on. Just the slow process of unpackery.

Stuff.

The end.

Time for the irregular regular updateyness.

Jul. 8th, 2010 | 11:36 am

All right, where to begin?

Kinda had fun at War, but not as much fun as I would've liked.

Had a good time in Arizona, but felt overwhelmed by meeting 459679 family members. XD We spent a few days in the mountains.... that was nice. We went to bed early like, every night.

Lapis' tooth count is now up to four, with a couple on the way, I think. She gets her feelings hurt when I tell her 'no', but it doesn't last long. She can now crawl, but when she has long distances to go, she does her bellyflop. She's pulling herself up on EVERYTHING, launching herself. She'll be walking soon!

Uh, what else. Life is life flavored, though I'm pretty depressed right now. Might be P.M.S. Might be other things. Missing some things, right now.

I guess that's it. Got summmertime work in a few weeks, I can totally look forward to it. Cough.

I guess that's it. Ta.

Hmm. Updates, updates.

May. 27th, 2010 | 10:10 am

Not a lot going on. Going up to War tomorrow morning as soon as papa gets in. I've pretty much got everything packed. Just need to put some last minute things in and I think we are set to go go go!

Sparkly.

The gown I made for Lapis came okay. Maybe we'll find something else for her at War... we'll see. I'm ready to go, really. Best vacation ever!

Speaking of the bit, her second tooth is coming in. I suspect that's why her sleep schedule has been the wonky lately. I'll be happy (and sad... she bites me D:) when she gets done teething. Huzzah time!

Off to put bits in places and whatnot. A bientot!
