fearless: Hope: Next right (Hope:  Next Right)

I told myself that this year I wouldn’t bother with resolutions, mostly due to the fact that I fail at keeping them. I made a HUGE list of resolutions last year and out of the 18, I think I was able to accomplish about 7 of them. In other words I failed miserably, lol. This year I think I’m going to shorten my list and create both an online and offline resolutions list. I don’t want to overwhelm myself so I think this time around I’ll be a bit more realistic and hopefully because of that I’ll be able to complete all my resolutions or at least 90% of them by the new year.

We’ll start with the online resolutions:
Blog more often. I’ve successfully blogged every day for a full month so I know I am more than capable of blogging more often then I do. I realize that there are a lot of factors that contribute to my lack of blogging, most often it’s not wanting to blog when I feel as if it’s forced and second often it’s just plain laziness. So this year I resolve to blog as often as possible with the exception of a forced blog entry.

Focus more on paid blogging and don’t do it half assedly. I know it’s a strange resolution to have, but this ties into one of my offline resolutions and thus if I take the time to try and create pieces I can be proud of, this will mean that I can start to branch out more and start working for companies that pay a bit higher for articles. I hope that I can eventually start making $50 per article like Jenn of Jenn.nu.

Stop slacking off on projects. I have several projects under my belt. When I say several, I mean several. One of which is a review site that I wanted to open which ended up falling to the way side. No more. I’m going to be more organized, make lists, and tackle one project at a time.

Increase my viewership. I’d like to get more readers on my blog and realize that in order to do so I need to network a bit more and reach out to others. Sites such as the former Despair.nu were great if you liked superficial comments, but I want readers who actively enjoy visiting my blog and vice versa.

Okay now on to the offline resolutions:

Pay off the credit cards. Now don’t think Robby and I have a shit ton of credit cards and are in debt to our eyeballs because that’s certainly not the case; however we both agreed that before we wanted to even think about trying for children we wanted to ensure that our credit cards are paid off. Obviously no one is every truly ready for children, but I certainly want to make sure that we are as prepared as we can possibly be which means ensuring that credit card bills are not a part of our lives when we introduce kids into them. (By the way, this is the offline resolution tied directly to the paid blogging.)

How about we make our home our home. We’ve been in the house for nearly a year now and it’s still so plain and dreary. I mean sure we painted the family room and living room, but I also want to work on getting pieces up on the walls and just making it feel more homey. Right now the bareness of the walls depresses me so I want to spice the place up by adding my own touches.

Become a Stove Top Diva. Only a few people understand what that means, but essentially I want to really focus on expanding my cooking repertoire because as of right now it’s lacking. Robby and I sat down and realized that we spend waaayyy too much on take out and have made a pack to avoid it as much as possible. Sure we have our moments of weakness, but I think we’re both doing a whole lot better. I also believe that doing this will help prevent us from falling off the wagon and as a result Caity, Jennifer, Rochelle, and I are going to start up a cooking blog in which each day one of us will share a “new” recipe/piece which will hopefully help all of us. By the way, we’re still looking for more people who might be interested in joining us on this escapade, so if you’re interested please shoot me an e-mail.

Focus on building up our savings. Because honestly right now? It’s crap. It’s not a decent size at all which bothers me. We had a sizeable amount, however we seem to have this problem of wanting to buy things that we normally would not if we didn’t have the money for it. I know it’s stupid and it bugs me when Robby decides to buy big ticket items, for instance the ATV he wants to spend our tax return on, but at the same time I can’t tell him no, when I’m guilty of doing the same– albeit the things I want don’t usually cost an arm and a leg. Even still, it’s something we need to work on.

I’m pretty happy with the resolutions I’ve set forth for myself. I’m determined to stick it out and hopefully next year, I will be writing a New Year’s entry of how I accomplished all of my resolutions instead of how I failed miserably at them. Hopefully this year will be full of changes that while difficult will be some of the best things we’ve ever done.

I had originally anticipated having the new site up on New Year’s Day, however due to unforeseen consequences, that didn’t happen. In any event, welcome to the new website! Not a whole lot has changed from my prior site, but I feel this site in its entirety is completely me. WishfulDrinking.Org was me for a time, however last year was a year I spent regaining all that I had lost in 2008 and rebuilding a marriage that had come close to being destroyed. It wasn’t easy and it was definitely a lot of work, but it was well worth it. I am grateful for the man I have in my life. He is what keeps me going and the person who picks me up when I fall. I love him so much.

Solstice was pretty mellow. It was just Robby and I this year, however it was nice. We haven’t really had a Solstice with gift giving, but this year I went all out to make sure we were able to. I got Robby a few presents that he adored and I bought myself a ton of DVDs. I know it’s strange that I purchased my own presents but I despise surprises and Robby isn’t the greatest with gift giving, lol. He takes things a little bit too seriously. It’s cute though. This year for Solstice I received:

From Robby:
-Wii Console

  • Zelda: The Twilight Princess
  • EA Sports Active
  • Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
  • Resident Evil 4
  • The New Super Mario Brothers
  • Wii Sports Resort
  • Cafe Mama
  • Burger Island
  • Dr. Mario
  • Harvest Moon
  • Warioland
  • Pikmin
  • Star Wars: Force Unleashed
  • Metroid
  • Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince

-Friends S1-S10
-Smallville S7-S8
-Stargate SG-1 Complete Series Collector’s Edition (S1-S10)
-Gossip Girl S2
-One Tree Hill S6
-Supernatural S4
-He’s Just Not That Into You
-The Night Before Christmas Collector’s
-iHome dock from my iPhone
-Laptop (but I returned it cause I couldn’t stand the resolution)

From my mother-in-law:
-$100 check

From my grandma-in-law
-$100 check

All in all, I feel like I came out on top. I got a lot of DVDs that I needed and they were all for a great price… plus a Wii, which admittedly I haven’t played in awhile but that’s due to the fact that I have been working some crazy, crazy hours. Robby and I talked and both agreed that we want to pay of our credit cards prior to having kids so I’m on a mission to pay them off by next year. It’s going to be hard but I think we can do it if we budget correctly and start utilizing coupons when we shop. I’m also considering picking up a second job at the Walmart down the street. It probably means I won’t be around as often, but if it gets us closer to being debt free credit card wise then it will be worth it. I doubt Robby will look at it that way though. =( Oh well, you have to do what you have to do.

School started up this Monday and I have another week to go before I finish this class, but I am starting up the IT class I ended up dropping next week. I’m hoping if I only have that class to focus on I’ll do better then I did before. I think for the most part I have a better footing then those who are just taking it for the first time, but I’m still going to try and get in touch with my instructor for extra help, etc. I hope I’m able to pull a good grade this time around. We’ll have to see though.

We’ll I’m off to watch some TV and get some sleep. I haven’t been sleeping well lately so I’m trying to catch up on as much as possible. We’ll see how that pans out though– I’m not thinking so well.

I know I’ve been MIA since the 30th, but Robby came home on the 1st and we were busy ravishing… er reveling in each other’s presence. ;) But seriously, it is great to have him home. I missed him terribly and I’m still sort of in a, well if I pinch myself, I’ll wake up and he’ll still be in France daze. Yes, it really was that bad being that far away from him. Never again. I made him promise! :giggle: So the other day we finally put up our Christmas tree, which by the way is gorgeous. I’m not just saying this, it’s truth. Look!

Now, it really is starting to look a lot like Christmas!

Told you didn’t I? ;) Anyway, the cats are driving me nuts with the damn thing, as they seem to think it’s a new toy that they can climb, eat, or swipe at. The dogs, however, are actually acting strangely behaved which worries me. They haven’t tried to attack any of the presents which is so unlike them. =/ Perhaps, they know they will incur the wrath of mommy if they mess with it? But then again, that’s never actually stopped them before. :lol: Oh well for now I will not complain. :shrugs:

It’s 7:37am and I’m awake. Why? Because my body decided that after going to sleep at 10:00pm, 3:30am was the perfect time to start a new day. Yeah, don’t ask. I don’t get it either. So I will be hating myself later in the day, but at least I have Rockstar Fruit Punch to hold me over, and hopefully I can reset my sleep cycle so I’m on the same cycle as Robby. I get lonely in the evenings when he’s sleeping. :lol:

So I am on a mission to make Gingerbread Cookies. I have never done it before, but I’m going to attempt it and see how it turns out. I will probably work on them this weekend since they need a full day to chill in the fridge before I can actually make them. I’m pretty excited and will definitely take pictures once I’m done. Wish me luck! Alright, I’m done for now, more later– hopefully with pictures of the gingerbread men that turned out correctly. :lol:

fearless: For Ecstasy MB announcements (Ecstasy)

I almost missed today’s post because I was so busy working on Ecstasy, but thankfully I remembered. I missed last night’s because I was cleaning the house and the time got a way from me. The only thing I have left to clean is our bedroom which I’m going to do tomorrow night and then Tuesday afternoon Robby will be back in my arms again which I am so grateful for. I have missed him so much, I cannot even put it into words. It’ll be good to have him home, us apart just isn’t right. :no:

I wrapped our first two presents today. I really want to get Robby something that he doesn’t know about, but I don’t know what that could be. He’s so difficult to shop for that it’s hard to surprise him. I wish the man would invest in a wish list or something. It would make my job as a wife much easier. Oh well, I’ll just have to think of something, I guess.

Hah, I’m excited for work tomorrow and not because well it’s work, but once it’s over then that means I’m only a few hours for seeing Robby again so it’s definitely a catch 22. I requested the last part of my shift off on Tuesday so I can spend that time with Robby. He’s going to be exhausted I’m sure so we’ll probably just cuddle and watch a movie or something. Aw just think about it gives me butterflies. I cannot wait.

All I know it’s been a crappy 8 days and I will be so glad to be in his arms again.

fearless: Sleep (Sleep)

It’s been a long day. I don’t know why I thought it was a good idea to stay up until 3:00am to work for four hours, go to bed for a total of 5 hours, and then work my regular 6 hour shift. I think because of that I ended up sick, so now I’m in bed, miserable, with an aching throat, and not willing to move. Just ugh, really. I hate it. :sigh: But at least today is Friday which means I have the next to days off, it’s just too bad I’m going to be spending those days cleaning.

I managed to grab season 7 of Smallville because it was no longer out of stock online, which completes my DVD shopping for the year. I also managed to hopefully grab Robby the Netbook he wanted for $180. I say hopefully because I am awaiting the e-mail, which I want receive until tomorrow indicating the order is ready for store pick up. I was so ecstatic when I saw it go back into stock online and then disappointed to find it was only available for store pick up and the stores in Phoenix did not have them. However, my persistence has paid off and a few minutes ago I checked again, just for the hell of it to discover it was showing in stock! I confirmed that inventory was showing two in stock, but that is assuming inventory is correct so I’ll find out tomorrow if they actually have it.

This concludes my Solstice shopping. Originally I was going to bother to put up a tree, but I figure, we have quite a few items coming in the mail, why not? Sure we know what they are but still, it would be fun. :lol: Besides, most who know me, know I hate surprises, and that I hate to wait to find things out, so this works out perfectly. :lol: Yes, I know I’m backwards but whatever. It’ll be fun to put the tree up with Robby when he gets home even if for some it seems silly since we know what we’re getting. :shrugs:

Well, I think I’m going to put in a movie and try and relax a bit. I’m determined to clean tomorrow so I should relax as much as possible now. It’ll be worth the effort in the end. I just have to keep telling myself that.

So I’ve decided to avoid all things net for awhile (minus my blog, of course) while I work to bring up my grade in my programming classes. I finally sat down today and read some of the text and after using my beading as an example finally started to get it. I hope that this means I’ll be able to pull my grade up because right now I’m in pure panic mode and I don’t like it.

Tomorrow is Thursday, which makes me incredibly sad. Yes, it means I’m one day closer to the weekend, but it also means that I’m 2 days closer to Robby leaving. Boo. I also haven’t had Pepsi all day so that’s sucked. I really, really need some. Ugh.

So last night I was really freaking buzzed when I posted, lol. I had almost forgotten I had until I checked it today. Oops. Those Tokyo Iced Teas are the devil, lol. I will have to make Robby show me how to make them before he leaves on Saturday. Ugh, I’m so sad about that. =( I keep telling him how I don’t want him to go, lol. It just blows, but meh I’ll manage. All I know is that means this week will fly by and next week will be slow as molasses because it’s the week he won’t be here. Gotta love how that works right?

Well, it’s official– school is kicking my ass. Well, class, rather. One class. I just don’t get it and it’s frustrating because it’s not clicking and I just want to pull my hair out and cry in frustration. This weekend I think I’m going to spend a few hours reading through the text and just trying to understand it. I hope it works because so far I am just a person with a big question mark over her head and I hate that because that is so not me. All of this just makes me want to throw my hands up and say I give up. =/

In other news I’m really, really taking to bead jewelry. I still have a lot to learn, but Tawni has been extremely helpful and I think with a lot more practice I’ll nail it then hopefully after that I can get back into bookbinding. I’m also really excited because Robby is letting me turn one of the spare bedrooms into a craft/photography studio so this means I can really focus on my arts. Ahh cannot wait. I really want to decorate the room to so I need to decide on a scheme! :giggle:

Well, I am off to try and work some more on Ecstasy. I feel like I’m so behind and have no time for anything. :( I am so looking forward to 2 weeks off in December. :nods:

Today was a weird day. Or maybe I just felt that way I don’t know. It was just a strange day. I don’t think going to bed at 4:30 in the morning and then waking up at 10:00am helped, but I did managed to power nap for an hour so that helped some. We’ll see what time I end up crashing today. Hopefully I’ll get sleepy around 1ish, but I doubt it. :sigh:

It was a pretty mellow day today. I didn’t do much. Work was offering voluntary time off, so I took it because I’m trying to get as many days of peace before the holiday season kicks in full force. So not looking forward to that at all. Hopefully it’s over soon. At least I can cross my fingers and hope, heh. I’ve become quite the addict of Farmville. It’s terrible because I’ve been avoiding it for so long, but got sucked in somehow. Oh well. At least it’s one more thing to pass the time!

Oh my beads should arrive tomorrow which means I can focus on working on trying to get better at the jewelry making. It’s not as easy as it looks– especially when you have to make loops! Those are the hardest, but I am determined to be successful at it! I also plan on taking up baking when the New Year starts. I really want to get into it and start making my own stuff so that will be one of my resolutions I suppose. I think it will be a good one. :nods:

Robby graduates from school next year and it seems like it’s taking forever. Lol. Maybe that’s because baby fever has hit me again and I want my own little bundle of joy. Ugh, I hate when I get like this, it’s terrible. Especially since I have to wait, which sucks, but I do understand the logic as to why I should. It doesn’t make it any easier though. =( Oh well, that’s life. Alright, I think I’m going to watch V since I keep forgetting to set the damn Tivo to record it. :lol:

Today was a much needed day to myself. I’ve been so exhausted and worn out that I just needed a day where I could laze about and not worry about anything at all. It was nice and I definitely need more days like it, but I don’t see that being the case now that Robby and I have the same days off. As Danika put it on Ecstasy, now that Robby and I have the same days off, we do more together, which means the days go by faster, and the weekend I should have had, feels like it never happened. Bleh. I guess the good comes with the bad? In any event, I think this weekend should be pretty mellow but we’ll see.

I can’t believe it but I was looking at the calendar today and realized that Robby is going to be leaving me in 2 weeks time. :( That makes me incredibly sad. It seems like the end of the year arrived so fast and I didn’t see it coming. I can’t even believe it. What’s even more unbelievable is that we’ve almost been in this house for nearly a year. It’s crazy to think about it. :lol: Just wow. But yeah, I guess time flies when all is right in the world and you’re happy. Course knowing my luck shit’s going to come crashing down, but hey I’ll take what I can get, when I can get it. :giggle:

Well I’m still sad that I don’t get a Thanksgiving this year, but it is what it is. If I happen to have Christmas off, then we’ll go out to SD and have turkey and stuffing at my mother-in-law’s house, but we’ll have to see. It’s going to be odd not having turkey this year. I love me some turkey, lol. I am crossing my fingers we’ll be able to go out, but I’m not holding my breath either. Oh well one can definitely wish, I suppose.

Alright, I am going to see about adding my stamp collection to this site. I’ve been putting it off, but if I don’t get drunk enough first, I may be safe. :lol:

Today I discovered that I can no longer just read my syllabus the day I know I typically have assignments due and crank them out. I actually have to make an attempt to read the syllabus beforehand and plan to complete an assignment over the course of a few days which I’m not too happy with, lol. I liked being able to just read the syllabus the day my assignments were due and crank it out within 20-30 minutes. Now that’s not really the case. :( Oh well, tis what it is and it’s only going to get harder as time goes on.

Things were pretty mellow today. We didn’t do much. I made white chocolate chip cookies and we went in to town for a bit, but we pretty much spent the day relaxing. I feel like the weekend just flew by and now I have to work again. I hate it. Hopefully next weekend doesn’t just disappear on me to. That’s just no fun and it makes me miss having Tuesdays and Wednesdays off.

Well, I think I’m going to watch a movie with Robby or something. I’m not really in the blogging mood, hence the shortness. Hopefully tomorrow is a bit better. We’ll see though!

So today has been an eventful day. Robby isn’t too great with the planning so he failed to get everyone’s numbers who said they’d be coming to the BBQ and as a result we weren’t able to call the majority of them so now we have an over abundance of food and waaayyyy too much alcoholic. I keep forgetting he’s not so good in the planning department. I’ll have to remember this in the future.

Julie, Mike, Nicole, and Mike ended up being the only ones to show, but still we had a great time. I’m sitting next to Julie now, sipping on my Alabama Slammer, and looking up baking sites. I think our project for the next year is to learn how to decorate pastries as we both want to. Hopefully that will work out, but we will have to see.

It’s only 10:00 pm and I’m exhausted. Sheesh, I forgot how draining rushing to clean the house and entertaining can be. Either way, I still had fun, even if we only had 4 people come over. It was nice and comfy and I enjoyed it.

Alright, I am going to have Robby make me another slammer and then try and see if I can look at some beads and other bakeware goods. I am determined to start this and see it through. I just hope I don’t eve up before I can try.

Lack of sleep has definitely caught up to me. It’s 9:30 and I’m yawning, which is bad because I still have homework that I need to complete but I’m so tired I can’t focus. I’ve been sleeping in the spare bedroom because of Robby’s snoring but when I sleep in there I don’t sleep well at all. I haven’t sleep in our bed in a week and it’s saddens me. I really wish he’d just go in and see a doctor so they can get his snoring under control, but nope, hasn’t done it. When he does take initiative he gives up if he can’t get hold of anyone which he’s done several times.

All I know is that I’m mentally and physically exhausted. I am barely holding myself together and I have a BBQ to host tomorrow so if I don’t get enough sleep tonight, I doubt I’ll manage to make it through tomorrow without passing out early. This bothers me greatly, especially because I was looking forward to it so much. :sigh:

Well, I’m going to try and finish up my homework so I can crash before Robby does. I’m hoping if I fall asleep before him, I’ll be so out of it by that point that the snoring won’t penetrate…. well one can hope, right?

So that whole going to bed early to catch up on sleep? Didn’t pan out because my body decided to fuck me wake me up at 6:54– yes in the morning. :sigh:

Anyway, I figure it’s best to get this blog out of the way now, before I get off and spend the next few hours after that working on homework. I don’t know how I feel about this new schedule. I thought I’d love it, but honestly it feels as if I don’t have time for anything. I get up usually around 10ish and puts around the house for a bit, log on to work at 1:30 and then work until 8:00pm. After which I spend about an hour or two with Robby watching shows or going to the store, etc, then I have to sit down and do homework, which lately if I’m lucky I finish by 11:30pm. After that I’m so wiped I don’t want to do anything, either in the house or on Ecstasy so I’m really hoping that something breaks and I get used to it or figure out a better way to not feel so absolutely drained.

I am so glad that tomorrow is Friday. I feel like this week has dragged on and on. I think that’s what I miss most about having Tuesdays and Wednesday as days off. It just seemed like the week went faster. I don’t know why. While, I’m glad I’m able to spend weekends with Robby, it also sucks because it feels like the week is never going to end. I guess you have to take some good with the bad. :(

In other news, I finally purchased my upgrade to Windows 7 Professional for my desktop. I’m downloading it right now and then I’ll have to modify a file and burn it to disc so I won’t have to do a full install and can just upgrade and not worry about losing any of my files or having to reinstall yet again. That’s what I hate the most… having to reinstall everything, so I hope this trick works. If not well then I guess I’ll be reinstalling. :lol:

Work in the new department for the most part is going well, though I detest having logged in one day to find that they had dual skilled me without asking my permission, nor increasing my pay. I’m sorry, but when did I agree to do 2 jobs? So I e-mailed my supervisor and told her that I wanted to focus on the current department and current project and had no interest in being dual skilled. She hasn’t gotten back to me, but so far I haven’t gotten very many calls from the other department today so I think perhaps she just changed my skill set without telling me. :shrugs:

Alright, I suppose I should get back to work. I have 2 hours and 17 minutes left. Here’s hoping it goes by fast.

The lack of sleep is starting to catch up to me. I got on the computer to finish a stamp set and it hit me how exhausted I am. I looked down at the clock and it said 10:30 and I could only think wow, tonight you need to get into bed early.. which didn’t exactly happen, but oh well.

I found out today that I actually ended up missing the assignment that was due in my other class too since teachers apparently like to switch things up, which pisses me off. Normally, assignments for my second class aren’t due until Wednesday, but some reason on this week it was due yesterday. Oh well, can’t do anything about it now.

Well, I guess Sacrafice was right. I’m far too exhausted to come up with anything right now, so I’m just going to call it a night and head to bed. Hopefully I’ll be more rested tomorrow. Good night.

I got my Solstice present early– well the BIG one anyway. I’m spoiled like that. Teehee! I am now typing on my brand new Toshiba Satellite laptop which I adore. The price was well worth it and the specs are pretty good. My Dell is still the better laptop but I really wasn’t a fan of the keyboard, nor did I like the slot loading disc drive. Seriously not a fan. Right now we’re debating about selling it. Robby still needs to decide if it’s something he wants to keep, which I think he may be leaning towards or if we’re going to just sell it. Not so sure yet, so I guess we’ll see.

I’m going to be late with my discussion question because I need to read the damn book which I didn’t get a chance to do. It’s 11:37 now and there are 36 pages and the answer can not be derived from the reading, rather I actually have to stop and think about the question and figure out the why and then give examples as to how I can overcome it. Bleh, I’d gotten so used to just being able to cruise through my courses that this sucks majorly. Oh well, it is what it is, time to buckle down and stop fucking around. At least the discussion question is only worth 10 points, so I’ll lose 3 if I turn it in after midnight which isn’t bad.

It’s so strange to be on this new schedule. I’m still not quite used to it. Lol. I keep thinking hey, I should have tomorrow off– oh wait no, weekends off instead. Lol. It’s a good thing though. Robby and I are able to spend so much more time together, which honestly had been one of our major problems. I’m really looking forward to this weekend’s BBQ. It’s going to be a blast and I know how excited Robby is as well. We’re both really looking forward to it. Alright, I’m going to read more of this programming stuff and finish my discussion question. I have other assignments due tomorrow so I don’t want to get backed up. Also, please stop by and visit Sacrafice, she just opened and needs some new friends! :)

So I almost blew it and didn’t make the last blog post, lol. Danika had to send me a text to remind me since Robby had me caught up watching “Inuyasha” lol. I still can’t believe that today is the last day of Project: Blog and that I managed to make it every single day, usually I fail hardcore at these, but with a bit of encouragement and motivation help for the members of Ecstasy, I managed to make it through. I’m really considering continuing with blogging every day but I’m not sure if I want to make that commitment. I suppose we’ll just have to see how it goes.


So I spent the last few days leveling both my Ranger and Gladiator. I’m really, really liking the Gladiator and I’m considered using her as my raider but I’m not sure. I’m thinking about rolling a priest because their always needed but I’m not entire sure. I guess we’ll have to see. So far I’m having a blast playing with Vala and hopefully we’ll be able to get out toons to cap and raid together. I just need to get Vent to work. *facepalm*

Today was pretty mellow, I didn’t do much. Played a lot of Aion and then finally quit when a quest I was on frustrated the hell out of me so I had to walk away. I’m a bar away from being half way to 17, so I’m going to try and hit 17 before I head to bed tonight but we’ll have to say. After a lot of thought I think I’m just going to use my Ranger for PVP and then use my Warrior or roll a Priest for raids. We’ll have to see though. I’m not 100% decided.


I’m a bit saddened at how fast my days off go. I don’t know when things changed but it went to feeling like I actually had days off, to not feeling that way at all. Ugh, it sucks. Alright I’m off to watch Inuyasha with Robby. Tomorrow makes the last day of Project: Blog– who knows maybe I’ll continue with blogging daily since I’m in the habit of it now. We’ll definitely have to see. ;)

I took this idea from [personal profile] cereta because she was kind enough to let me use it.

5 Thing That Made Me Happy Today

  • Naptime: Robby and I took a nap together and it was nice. Odd to be happy about it I know, but it doesn’t happen often (he’s not a napper) so I was happy when he climbed into bed with me last night.
  • I woke up in our bed this morning: Most of you know that for the past few weeks I have been sleeping in the spare bedroom because Robby’s snoring has gotten so bad that I haven’t been able to sleep properly. While I don’t know what changed last night but I was able to fall asleep and didn’t wake up at all during the night to tell him to roll over or move to the spare bedroom. I loved this. It made me happy to be sleeping in the same bed with him.
  • Dinner: Robby was sweet enough to make me dinner and bring it up to me while I did school work. It’s the little things I tell you. :)
  • Kisses: Being able to kiss Robby and not feeling like it was reflex but feeling like it meant something.
  • Cuddles: Cuddling with my baby and watching a movie/TV show. It’s always one of the highlights of my day.

So what made you happy today?

fearless: Aion (Aion)

Today has been pretty mellow. I ended up rolling Elyos since Vala decided she liked them better and I hate them. Lol. The starter area blows and the wings look awful. Seriously, they look so fake it wasn’t even funny. I also had a slight headache develop about an hour again and I think in large part it’s deal to the lack of sleep I got last night. Thank you, Diesel. She decided to wake me up this morning and after that I couldn’t go back to sleep. I had contemplated taking a nap but that didn’t really pan out for me. :(


Robby picked up the Aion game today and the box is super pretty. I’m thinking about reinstalling it because I’ve had some game crashes while in a major city so I don’t know if it’s the game itself or because of the city. *shrugs* I suppose uninstalling and reinstalling will let me know. In any event, I’m slowly but steadily leveling away and from what I hear 20 onward is going to be a lot of grinding so I guess I’m preparing myself for that. Oh well, we shall see!

fearless: Aion (Aion)

Well I almost completely blew Project: Blog because I got caught up in leveling in Aion. Thankfully Danika reminded me so I figured I would “pause” and get this blog in. The launch for Aion, well at least the Head Start launch, I felt was done well. Honestly, it could have been much worse and yes there were and still are queues, but honestly that’s to be expected. Would people honestly rather have the ability to log on with ever simultaneously causing the server to overload which prevents EVERYONE from playing? Yeah, I didn’t think so.


I’ve had my fair share of waiting. Sure it wasn’t 3 hours of waiting, but honestly if that was what I was faced with, I’d have walked away, put on a movie, made some dinner, or gotten other stuff done in between. I get that people want to play however the queues will disappear as the servers balance out. It just takes a bit of time which people aren’t willing to understand. :sigh:


In any event, the game is awesome, the people are awesome and it’s a nice change of place. Definitely looking forward to the raids and instances. It’s sure to be kick ass.
