Hi Kids! I’ve decided to do THIS again.
I rather like photo challenges. They force me to get off my ass and do something. I also discovered THIS ART CHALLENGE, but I’m not much into drawing these days, though I am trying to get back into that. I am planning on doing another year long self portrait challenge starting on my 45th birthday. I did this ten years ago for my 35th birthday and I think I may try to do it every ten years.
I’ll probably do the bulk of this project on my phone. I’ll be posting my April Love images to my Instagram feed if you care to check them out.
Now to find something blue to photograph before the end of the day.
I woke up during a nightmare this morning.
I was in a classroom taking an exam that I knew I was going to bomb. I looked out the window and it turned into a car window and there was a 4 year old boy with a fluorescent pink bicycle hiding next to a tree I was parked next to. I look to my right and Carol is sitting there. Then I looked back at the kid and he was climbing into some duct work that appeared out of nowhere and he got stuck. Suddenly I was alone and trying to verbally coax the kid out of the duct as I was getting out of the car. He wriggled and slid down and got trapped. In the dream I freaked out screaming that Timmy fell down the fucking well and I woke up sweating. Very strange.
I obviously haven’t blogged in a while. Honestly, I haven’t felt like it. It’s been a hell of a year. Things are creeping back to normal, so perhaps I’ll pop in here again soon. Or maybe I won’t. I am after all, a really strange girl.
Ron: “You haven’t blogged in a couple of days…”
Me: “Yeah… I think I’ve given up.”
Ron: “You should blog that.”
Me: “I’ll do it tomorrow.”
I missed another day yesterday. Oh well. I had a long day at work and then went out with co-workers after and didn’t get home until 10:30, at which point I went directly to bed. I did not pass go. I did not collect $200.
I figured it was good to get out and vent to sympathetic ears about our current work situation. A little less social media and a little more actually socializing was good. There are some people I haven’t seen in weeks, and others I’ve seen far too much of. Too much togetherness for far too long. We all need our space and our places to hide from each other, yet we need to see the others and let them vent to us as well.
I can’t wait until we are back in the building and back to our regular routines.
Can I just say, the weather these last couple of weeks has been amazing. Simply perfect. Temp’s ranging from 65-75 and dry. This is unheard of this time of year in New England. Yeah, it’s supposed to absolutely dump tomorrow, but the last two weeks? Perfect weather for this big, pale, sweaty broad.
Well, it seems I missed a day. I spaced out on yesterday. Almost spaced out on today too.
So what exciting thing happened today? Well, I bought some new clothes. My husband makes a great personal stylist. There was a Patriot’s game on this afternoon so off to the mall we went in the hopes that everyone else in the area decided to stay home and watch the game. They didn’t, but I wonder how busy it would be if there wasn’t a game on.
Usually I won’t set foot in a mall after Halloween until well after Christmas. It wasn’t too bad today though. I found a slouchy pair of boots and a few things at Torrid. I love the clothes at Torrid, but sadly I am the smallest size they carry since they cater to gals bigger than me. I have the reverse problem in the regular size stores where I am either the largest size they carry or they don’t carry it at all. *sigh* With the help of my husband though I found two skirts, a dress, and a cardigan with skulls on it.
Oh, and the Bruins won tonight. Overall a good weekend.
It’s the end of another long ass week. My husband and I went out to dinner since neither of us felt like cooking. I had an adult beverage or two, which is just enough for me to think I’m hilarious, but not quite enough for me to actually be funny. I do however feel much more relaxed now though.
I think that’s all I have to say tonight. I’m not sure what I was thinking when I decided to do this blog every day thing this month. Hopefully I’ll be a little more interesting after getting some much needed sleep. Good night!
