Being pregnant sucks the life force out of you.
I’m pretty sure that’s a medical fact. And it’s certainly ringing very true with me, I’m tossing every night, and can’t seem to find the energy to right myself in the morning to even make it to the alarm clock..
I think I’m going to do some stretches as soon as I roll out of bed (and yes I mean roll.) To help the circulation and get my body ready to move.
So… we have until winter to move out. Being as I’m 5 Months pregnant and don’t really have the option of living with roommates any longer, we need to get out of here sooner rather than later. It seems like an achievable goal, being as I’m still working and Mr. Skymaster just got not one, but to decent jobs and is now working 50+ hours a week. I believe we should be able to move out if we save every penny we can in about two or three months.
So the actual goal is to be 100% moved out by November!
Sooner would be nicer so that we can throw a kick ass Halloween/Housewarming party.
I did it. Unfortunately it’s been replaced by maternity clothing.. >.< I planned on only having a couple of outfits to re-wear, but the Mother In-Law keeps buying me things for the pregnancy.. I suppose I’ll have to spring clean (actually in spring too!) When the baby is here and I can fit in non-blimp clothing.
On-going goal, only on hold.

(it was so disturbing that it took me all month to finish! great read though.)
I’m caught between whether I want to just sew a tote, or if I want to crochet one, I have a pattern picked. I’m just hesitant about starting another project.
I need something without pockets. The one I have now has about eight of them, and in addition to me losing things when I put them in pockets, it’s also a bitch during bag check when we leave work.
alright, I got the yolk done last night, and got three rows into the 13 row border and I RAN OUT OF YARN!! How could I have made such a huge miscalculation!? It’s kind of okay though, I undid the border completely and took out four rows from the middle.. I hope it’s still going to be large enough, but I’m praying that after I block it (never blocked anything before) it will stretch a little. I’m going to go full speed tonight, make some coffee and get as much done before I pass out.
I hadn’t bitten them in 2 1/2 weeks, and halfway through work I busted my right thumbnail. I kept catching it on stuff, and it hurt, so I chewed it off because there wasn’t any clippers. I’m repainting them tonight and keeping them out of my mouth. I was doing so well!
She’s back in assisted living. Sigh.
I will continue looking for group homes and apparement associated with mental health, but for the time being I’m just going to set up some activites for her to do during the day. And I’ve resolved to invite her over to dinner at least once a week. Today’s the first dinner, and we’re going out to see X-Men afterwards. I think this situation is better for our relationship in the long run, but I still feel guilty that she’s stuck back in a facility.
officially one week! >.< I got some new polish, and got a manicure, and now they look all nice! I’m not going to count this done until I no longer have the urge to bite.
I have exactly twenty days to complete this.. I’m going to aim for the 15th. Can it be done?
Painted them a couple of days ago, I think about three. I did start nibbling at the movie theater, but quickly replaced the nail with a straw before any damage was done.

(That ends the series I’ve been working on since November!)
It seems that every day since I set this goal, I have gone back to sleep immediately after hitting the alarm. Lamesauce. Tomorrow morning, I’m going to roll out of bed, stretch then hit the alarm and not crawl back under the covers for the next nine minutes until the snooze kicks in.
painted them… chewed them off anyway. It seems when I think about it, I do it more. barghlargh.
I heard somewhere that soaking them in vinegar works. But I LOVE vinegar… any other suggestions? Do fake nails work?
I have been assessing myself as a human, and I’m not too pleased with what I see. I hold onto pointless material things and don’t pay any attention to the things I think matter in life. I find myself sneering at the people who come to the mall (my place of employment) and buy senselessly, without any real need for what they are buying. I need to clear my life of all the things I hold on to that I don’t need, and never did.
-I will only keep the clothing that I wear on a regular basis; (a couple tee shirts, tanks and pants.)
-I will keep very few pieces of jewelry; (handmade and sentimental.)
-I will keep the few shoes I wear; (sneakers.. the rest are of such low quality I see them falling apart after a few more wears.)
-I will keep the books I plan to read, or re-read.
-I will organize and store the paperwork I need. (toss the rest.)
-I will keep the craft supplies I use. (This one is tricky.. you know what I mean you crafters out there.)
I want to live a life free of these things I think I need to keep around me to feel accomplished. If there isn’t something adorning every surface I feel like it’s empty. If I don’t have a million choices to wear, I feel naked. I need to break free of this thinking. I’ll just donate as much as I possibly can, or even a yard sale would work, but that’s too much organizing and it feels selfish. (PLUS there’s so much time to be all “I’ll hang on to this for a while..”
It’s time for an all out life cleanse.
Tonight my mother sat down with me and discussed her options. We agreed that for the time being her living on her own or rather “alone” as she sees it is not a good choice. I feel like this has been a big waste of effort. But I will begin calling and maybe even visiting a few assisted living facilities around the area and hopefully we’ll have her moved in by the first week of June. I feel pretty selfish forcing her out of my home so soon, but housing her has really put a lot of pressure on everyone who lives here. And living with my mother again after thirteen years is really too much stress for me to handle without being a horrible mess. It’s the best choice right now.. I just have to keep telling myself that.
okay, I finished the outside part of the bodice.. now I have to do the backing, and the shorts, and I’ll be complete! :D I feel like I’m rushing and not doing as good of a job as I should. But it’s a costume. and I bought so much fabric in that color that I’ll be able to try again after the con. Sadly, I don’t think I’ll finish by midnight tonight being that there are a lot of people in that side of the house and I need to concentrate pretty hard to get any work done on it (Without screwing it up at least). If I can get it done by the time I pass out tonight, I’ll consider this personal challenge complete! And go out looking for some shoes to wear with it tomorrow! :D
i have a couple of ideas, I first wanted an octopus wrapping around my ankle, (like it’s hugging me!) But I found this other one (http://i31.tinypic.com/2iqyik4.png) which is sansrkit for “Nonviolence” which I love. Another one I wanted was a Ghibli character above my thigh somewhere. Any suggestions, ideas?
I just got a romper pattern to make a cute little grey romper. To wear at animazement next weekend! It’s going to be awesome if I can get off my ass and actually make the thing.. I can find an excuse to get some new strappy sandals. >.<
With my Mom living with us, it’s very uncomfortable and frustrating. I am so happy that she’s no longer living in a home, but she needs to live her own life; unsupported by her irresponsible daughter. I’ll be visiting a lot of options on monday morning. Who knew it was practically impossible to find a place for under $400/mo? Jesus.
