I feel old >.> [23 Jan 2011|01:50am]
[ mood | sleepy ]

LOL....well, sort of.

Ohayocon is right around the corner and I'm in the mad rush of cosplay construction.  Knowing that I have that short of time the plan was to stay up late and work this afternoon/night....and, well, it's going on 1:45am and I'm WAY exhausted. I did make lots of progress, but feel sad thinking back to my college days when staying up till 2 or 3 was an easy task and didn't have me running around zombie like  >.> - (z Z z Z)

Bottom line of this very tired update....

Costumes are nearly done.
Can't stay up late like I used to.
Need to find away to stay awake and not feel lame.....but not right now. Right now I'm going to bed.

10 Days and counting my lovlies!

Ten short, yet oh so painfully long, days till I get to go back to the most Magical Place on Earth!

I am so excited to be able to go back to Disney World for our 1st Anniversary!

We did sacrifice some though. We didn’t go to Acen and probably won’t go to Youma, but honestly, I think it’s worth it!


Mickey calls to me right now!



“Amy! Amy! Come back and have more magical moments! Eat more delicious foods! Play more games! Ride more rides! Watch the parades and walk down MainStreet USA as you approach Cinderella Castle and well up with happiness!!!”


*SQUEE!* I can’t wait!!!!

[ mood | cheerful ]

So I have had a wonderful birthday! It's been a long time since I've been this excited for and happy over one! 

Usually I take the attitude of, "meh, just another day", but not today!

All week Eric's been super eager about giving me my gift and constantly reminding me that it's almost my b-day. And a lot of people from work were reminding me "It's almost your b-day!" and stuff like that. It actually makes me look foreward to the day!

So many nice things happened today! The sun was shining and beautiful (most of the day!), Eric had flowers sent to me at work!, we ordered nummy Chinese food, I got so many texts, FB notes, and such wishing me a Happy B-day, and for my gift Eric got me a fricking brand new LAPTOP!!!  (Sweetie, you're the best!!!! <3)

My old one about had it. It still ran ok, but it really lagged and the hinges were broke so the screen would flop around and in general, it was just a really old laptop. Heck, I even bought it used! My new one is wonderful! It's a compaq....compared to my old it's like heaven! So light, and doesn't overheat, the screen stays put!...the list goes on!

So yes, I loved my birthday this year!

WTF Project Runway! How the hell did Amelio(sp?) stay in the show! His "Bikini" was barely even clothes! AND he didn't even have an accessory, which was a mandatory part of the contest!

Sure, Jessie's outfit wasn't the best, but it was wearable!!!!!

AUUGH!!!   I also hate that Amelio came up with the BS excuse of "I wanted to make a bathing suit cause I knew everyone else would be making a dress"....as opposed to the truth of ..'oops...I wanted to make a dress, but didn't have enough material or time!!'

I swear, Project Runway, you make me soooo mad sometiems!!!

Oh well, Guess I should be happy that my two favorites (Jay and Seth) are still in there and going strong!

Had a pretty productive day!

Got some cleaning done around the apartment (still need to tackle the pile of dishes though >.>) And most importantly, got some good shopping done!  We were in desperate need of grocery shopping!

Dominicks had some amazing sales including 2lt Soda's for only .49cents!!  Can't beat that!

Of course, we did a run around to Dominicks, Aldi, and Wal-mart...but well worth it. Now I just gotta put all the stuff away! >,<    LOL

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Valentine's Day and Chinese New Years!

I've had a great lazy day with Eric and enjoyed some yummy food from Ming Toy!

Have a great day everyone and remember....everyone is special to someone in your life!
  The beautiful flower Eric got me. And the start of a new tradition....for every Valentines we spend together, one more flower will be added.

UGH! Yet another weekend has flown by and I have nothing to show for it! >.>

The only thing productive that I've done was order a wig for my Milly cosplay...speaking of, I REALLY need to get to work on that. Ohayocon is at the end of the month and I haven't even started sewing!!

Working on cosplay and trying to get ready for a con just isn't the same as it used to be. Don't get me wrong. I love cons! Always will. But they're different now...I'm different.

I remember working part-time at Little Ceasers and still barely finding the time to work on costumes and only having to worry about keeping my little room clean. Now I have a full time job...with odd days off (ie: thursday and sunday), an entire apartment to clean, and well....just life to deal with....being a grown-up sucks ><

But everything will work out somehow!  Here's what I have to do:

1) Work on cleaning the apartment throughout the week
2) Christmas decor is down and boxed up, but needs put in our storage unit
3) Laundry!  (I seriously would kill for a washer/dryer in our apartment!)
4) Pull out all the cosplay material!

PS: about 20mins I realized we hadn't pre-reged for Ohayocon and it ends tonight!!  Thankfully, even considering the time dif between here and Ohio...we were able to make it!! LOL

Ok....that's enough for me tonight!  Gotta get up at 7:30 for work!......God, I miss having to wake up at 9:30 ~_~

So ya wanna know what's annoying? The people in the apartment next to mine building something that requires constant hammering and use of a very loud drill.....and doing all of this after midnight!!!!...Seriously! It sounds like they're building wall-to-wall bookselves from scratch!!!! >_<

Ok....so it's a saturday night, but ,Hello!! I have no life >.> I'm just trying to relax while home alone and watch some tv/read a book. 

This would've resulted in me pounding back on the wall to shut them up....but these neighbors are generally good and have never cause this much noise before. It's probably just a one time deal, so I'm not gonna get all pissy about it...but the annoyance will remain.

Thankfully, it seems to be quieting down already!

So I think it’ll be fun to go through and see what, if anything, has changed!


Here we go!! (I’ll write my new answers below the question and original answers)


Meme time!Collapse )

So what do you do when you find cranberries on sale for .50cents a bag? Take them home and attempt to make cranberry sauce for the first time!!!....And a pretty damn good sauce it is!!!

It's made with only whole cranberries, water, and sugar...You boil your cranberries in sugar water till they pop. Then stir around till mostly creamy, but there will be lots chunks...I know some people like to have their homemade sauce chunky, but I like mine creamy! So I used my imerssion blender to get rid of all the chunks and then strained it to remove any large chunks of pulp. It's soooo smooth and yummy!!!!

Going on with my day....

Eric and I have removed most of our Christmas decorations and now I'm going to attempt to make Split pea and ham soup!!

Lot's of attempts of making new food today!!  Let's hope for the best! LOL

HAPPY (kinda late) NEW YEARS!!!!! 

I orginally didn't have any plans, but Crizl got in touch and asked for Eric and I to come over for a small party! It was soooo much fun!

We started off watching some South Park while snacking on some yummy food! Then we all watched The Hangover!  I remember everyone at work talking about it and how great a movie it is, but never got around to watching it, till now. BTW...Loved it!

I also had some amazing drinks thanks to Jeremy, Crizl's bf! First I had a cosmopolitan and then proceeded to drink numerous Choco-tinies!!!!....YUM!!!  Cannot express how good those were!! Like milkshakes for adults!!!!

For the New Years countdown we didn't have poppers or noise makers, but Tach handed out Nerf Guns to everyone and we shot those around at everything and everyone!!!

So, YES! I had a great New Years!!! And in honor of New Years....here's the N.Y. Meme that sooo many people are doing!

Hard to believe that in less than a month another year will have come and gone. I feel like this last year was the longest, yet somehow also the fastest year I’ve ever experienced.

I don’t really feel like doing a “Year End Review” post right now. Guess I’m just feeling a bit…thoughtful.

So many things go on in life that I tend to get caught up and loose track of the time. I used to be a devout LJer back in the day. I kinda miss that. It helped to recap my day. Make me remember what I did so the day didn’t just pass by without a second thought. It’s also nice to have a post to look back on years from now.

I’d love to say I’m gonna restart that. Attempt to make a daily post or even a “every couple of days” post…but I’m sure we’d all know how that end >.> So if I get around to it then good…if not, Meh, life goes on.

But lemme catch you up on what’s going on right now.

Hobbies are good for you!!Collapse )

Would a 9 to 5 be so much to ask for?Collapse )

It's CHRISTMAS!!!.....almost...Collapse )

So wow! I didn’t expect to write nearly two full pages worth of text. Guess I had a lot to write about. If you read through it all…then, you deserve some sort of medal!!!

[ mood | sleepy ]

I can't sleep ~_~

(monthly pain talk - read at own risk)

So it's 7am and I've been up since 5am and I didn't go to bed till 2am....Yay 3hrs of sleep ><

I'm cramping so bad right now! I'm currently sitting on the floor in my bedroom, infront of the space heater, trying to reach some level of comfort which would allow me to at least fall asleep for a few more hours. I did head out to the living room for a bit hoping that some idle tv would help me zone out and fall asleep, but Angel came on and I found myself actually alertly watching it, so I did the smart thing and turned it off and came back to the bed room.

I had hoped that most of my cramping would have happened yesterday, rather than...oh....middle of the night/right now!!

It always feels 10xs worse when I cramp while trying to sleep.

My luck, I'll not be able to fall back asleep, just decide to stay up/run outta time and have to stay up, then head over to Eric's mom's for Thanksgiving Dinner....and the itis will hit HARD!

I have so much planned that I want to get done today, but I don't I'll get anything done at this rate. Seriously, I think I'll be lucky if I mange to leave Eric's mom's without falling asleep.

And to think, I get to wake up at 6:45 tomorrow to be at work bright and early!!....joy....

I can't even remember if I have plans this weekend. I sure hope not, because all I want to do is sleep.

Well, it's after midnight, so....HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

Tomorrow I'll get up, try to catch some of the Parade on tv (at least the end with Santa!) and then we'll be heading over to Eric's mom's for Dinner!

I gotta admit though, I feel kinda like I'm bum-rushin' Turkey Day because I'm all excited for Christmas. It's like when I was way excited for Halloween back in September. I always hold off on putting up my tree untill Thanksgiving day or the day after. I think tomorrow night the tree's going up!!

I don't want to ignore Thanksgiving all together though, so here's a few things I'm thankful for:

I'm thankful for having such a loving, wonderful husband who's my best friend in the whole entire world!!

For my family, as crazy as they get, we're always there for eachother!

For staying strong in difficult times. When money is tight and health is fading, there's always a light at the end of the tunnel!

For friends who, even if I don't see them that often, make me laugh and feel wanted!

For my cats, my job, and .... my lifestyle....We may not be rolling in the dough (far from it) but we live comfortably. I always hear stories about people who have it far worse than us and it makes me really happy for what we have.

But that doesn't mean I'll stop dreaming and wanting more ^^; My goal is to stop living in an aparment and have a nice house someday!
