so, i have not really written anything with any substance for some time...hell, have i ever written anything of substance ever? yes yes...bag on myself in my own time...sigh. ok so i have not been blogging in a while. dunno if it's A.D.D., lack of enthusiasm, addiction to "Oblivion" (my bets on oblivion) er what...i have been logging in reading me neighbors posts and general screwing around but never just sliding that mouse up and clicking on compose. so today i thought i'd give it a try.
the past few months have been interesting...not really...christmas happend, which isn't a whole lot in this house, i mean an agnostic and an atheist, the only reason any decorations go up is because i like sparklies, woo woo! but then the tinsle fiber optic tree just didnt seem to die, it hung out in the living room till well into march. christmas was cool though because i was with the man i love, i got to be with my family and big brother tyler and wife sarah came out from cali to visit! (and i got one of those nifty food saver things, haven't used it yet, but it's still cool!)
then the new year WOOOOOOO, i worked...i began to realize slinging videos just really wasn't my thing...er...i like movies...i like movies alot! anyone that knows me knows i love the silver screen...it just sucks when the whole buisness retail thing comes in...does anyone out there rent at blockbuster? and have you been getting sick of having "total access" shoved down your neck? i like movies, i wanna talk about movies, help people find the movie that will make their night, possibly get them to pick up some goodies to round things out and maybe see if one of our programs will work for them....but to day after day night after night have to push total access to these people to the point that we are having customers yell at us because they don't want to hear it any more....no thanks. but it's a new year and i've been in retail for 12 years, so i shut up and suck it up...for a while. come late feb. i walk into the store for yet another "emergency" meeting and the district manager is late (yet again! i had a one on one meeting with her two weeks prior, she never showed up and she called the meeting grrrrr) so i look at the two other managers at the meeting and drop off my last rentals and set my keys on the counter and say good bye.
now, it's my birthday it was a really good day! had a party with the fam the sunday before then spent the day of with my husband cole. it was great!
but then following that was the one year anniversary of my mother in law's death...one year had passed since her passing and i thought i was doing better with the whole thing, but....i dunno, it sucks its hurts and i hate to see cole in so much pain.
then it was his b-day! and i'm begining to think that quitting my job was not such a good idea. cole seems happy and fine that i'm not working, all he keeps saying is "i just want you to be happy". but after the wonderful day he gave me the month before i wanted to do something for him...i know i know there are plenty of things a person can do to show another how you feel about them and not spend a ton of loot...but...so i beat myself up for not being able to buy him a ton of crap. i did however make a purple pirate cake. yes (i wish i had a picture to show you all, sigh) my first ever attempt at decorating a cake...i mean really decorating not just slapping the frosting on going. he likes pirate stuff so i thought i'd make a pirate cake...how does one make a pirate cake, well i'm sure there are many ways to accomplish it, but i went with making a cake of the jolly rodger. pirate flag cake woo woo. the cake it's self turned out great nice lovely chocolate thing...then i made butter cream frosting, yum. then i tried to turn the frosting black...i had gone to the craft store and gone down the cake decorating isle and picked up black food coloring....i mixed the ENTIRE tube of it into the little batch of frosting i'd made and all i came up with was purple, hooray. to make a long story short (too late) every one had stained tongues and teeth and had some really funky colored poop the next day, go team me!
and now we're almost up to speed...april 1st was our one year wedding anniversary. we had a huge fight the night before...made up and worked it out and the day of was wonderful. and seeing that a year had gone by i thought it was about time i got my sorry ass down to the photographers and pick out the pictures we wanted in out wedding album! so i have picked up the preview album and just need to pick out the pics! hopefully i'll be done before another year goes by.
oh, and this last weekend i went target shooting with cole and my big bro jason....and i have to say it was fun! i was expecting it to be a complete drag but i'm happy to report it was a blast and i don't totally suck. i thought i did pretty good considering it was my first time ever handling a gun. i shot a 22 rifle. and i actualy hit the targets.
i guess thats about everything that has happend to me in the past little while....so uh....bye for now and i'll try to keep up...
