05:33 pm - and a brief flash
welp... it's been a number of years since I updated this thing, it's part of life. But I'm 27, married for a tad more than 5 years, home-owner, cat owner, and 20 weeks pregnant. I am also now on prozac, and it would seem I have a thyroid disorder that also doubles as an auto-immune disease, so I'm being treated for that as well. I feel great, pregnancy symptoms aside, which is fantastic. I'm excited about this wee lil 'lump that keeps tap-dancing on my bladder (no idea what gender yet, not for another month. ugh.) I Love my wee lil beastie (so called Freyja) who snuggles with me during the night. I love my tall, scruffy, husband- happiness is curling up on our couch watching bad anime or making dinner together. one downside to being pregnant though is I had to give up lifting and aerial silks, which I miss desperately. As soon as I'm able to, I'll be back in the sky again- having to relearn the pain of poise and all that. Finally have a timeline for getting graduate degrees, truth- not my original plan, but the fact that I am now so much more comfortable knowing that it's something I can control. And that it's something I still want, and that I'll eventually get. but I think that this'll probably be it for this thing. Though that could change, I've learned that the only thing I can count on is change and growth. might be I'll need this thing again, but that time is not now.

Sailing over wave and tide oh ho ho
Fantastic waves against our sides oh ho ho
And I'm not so afraid
Lost at sea, as i should be
And I'm not so afraid
Lost at sea, you and I, you and me

Cause we've made it
All the way home
All the way home
And you know that
Until the stars fall
I will always love you
I will always love you

The mystery of salt and sea oh ho ho
Has never been intriguing oh ho ho
And to me but the sea
Green is set so beautifully
Against your thoughtful face
That I must close my eyes
And turn my face

Cause we've made it
All the way home
All the way home
And you know that
Until the stars fall
I will always love you
I will always love you

Still floating soft
I am dreaming and I'm glad I lost
And still with my fingers
I'm drawing circles in the water
In the water
And still, still you're always there

Cause we've made it
All the way home
All the way home
And you know that
Until the stars fall
I will always love you
I will always love you

07:43 pm - merry Christmas
Merry Christmas.

I got an awesome hat
many new books
a nice coat
new jewelry

and many other great things I'm not going to list since I'm going to get off and spend more time with my family playing little Big Planet on the PS3 Ty and I got them (we're still poor, but it was a FANTASTIC deal that came with games and controllers and other toys as well for less than the cost of a usual used one... so, basically, we RULE)

I wish you all the joys of the holidays, a merry Christmas and a joyous new year.

I know, I've been a bad LJ-er.

sue me.

But the highlights this past while have included:

kick-ASS weekend in Myrtle beach with the best people in the WORLD. My old english group :), pictures to follow.

and thats about it. The apartment varies between my need for surgical cleanliness and my apathy after a 10 hour day on my feet. And iI'm not totally ok with this, but I'm working on it.

Also: Chrissy is getting married this weekend, and I'm in charge of the reception. Awesome, huh?
minus the snow and the massive traveling involved.

and now I'm back to productivity. And ramen.

08:10 pm - and it was my home
I had a very vivid dream last night. As I have been as of late, though those have generally been nightmares.... among other things, but that doesn't bare going into at the moment, now does it?

I dreamed that I dwelt in an old estate by the sea- there was a ball room with paneled walls done up in the classical style, though it was all blue and silver and the paintings and images seemed to be stories that only I would now and recognize. I even remember some of them, and some were ancestors I was supposed to have...

but my favorite was another room that's vaguely reminiscent of a room in my grandparent's house- it sticks out a bit further than the rest of the house and is round(ish) and has floor to ceiling windows and it had a view of the sea.... again, this room was all blue and silver, like the house was made to echo the sea... and it did, as I recall. the furniture was gorgeous, and soft and... floaty, if that makes sense.

and I'm done rambling for right now.

09:12 pm - I'm not dead yet....in fact, I'm feeling better :)



*Move was successful. New Apartment > Old Apartment

*trip to U.P. was awesome and made me sad to leave. Made a new friend, fambly and I had the crap scared out of us on our way there, and Devon and I got closer <3

*Promotion time! I'm now, and have been assistant manager and I'm (probably) getting manager come December. Still on the fence about that. Probably the subject for a later entry

*working like crazy on art stuff. Gearing up to draw/write a comic, actually. If you're interested in doing a guest strip, let me know.

I will accept stick figures, so don't feel like it has to be pretty. I'm working on backgrounds right now and drawing styles. So it'll still be awhile.

regular updates will once again commence.

I have some pretty entertaining ones based on working at a coffee shop. Seriously, I'll pull out a random quote

"  'yes, but only if you answer my riddles three;   "

see? funny... and you want to know more.  Which is a winning combination.

Also: I've made new friends, two probably closer than the others... but wow. I'm making plans again, and parties and movie-marathons


I'm gonna go see BDSS this Saturday! YAY!

and now, gonna go read and take a shower. I have to be up at 5:00 to open the store. Blech.

  • 10:16 My nephew is running around with a file-folder box that he has colored handing it to people and saying "happy birthday cake" awesome. #
  • 10:24 "Is it delicious josh?"
    "No, it's a happy birthday cake!" *indignant glare*
    Hahahaha #
  • 10:26 "Blow it, Britty" perhaps the only time in my life when that won't be meant in a dirty way. Ah, the innocence of youth. #
