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.

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.
