fearless: (As One)

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.

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.

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:

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.
