It seems I’m making a habit of having a post once a month. Ug. I’m a terrible blogger. I would like to think I could post more like I use to but when you have body aches, joint pain, and fatigue all the time it makes it hard to want to come and sit at my computer after work and make a blog entry. I see the Rheumatologist the day after Christmas and I’m nervous as all hell. Mostly because I just have this gut feeling he will not help me and I will be stuck like this, no one believing my pain. I mean, my PCP usually does but he isn’t being much of a doctor anymore with all his new admin responsibilities. There is also only so much he knows about this kind of issue. I guess if I get desperate I can have him refer me to a doctor out of town. Maybe I should just think positive and hope that he tries to help me and not just brush me off. Sigh.
Anyway, enough of the depressing stuff!
First of all, at work, we had another mmodal trainer come in. It was really kind of pointless. I think it would have been better if they had just told me how to do the extra stuff. Still, she was fun to hang with and she invited me to a paint and sip. My very first one! I always wanted to try one but never had anyone to go with. My painting looks like crap but it was fun.
Second, my boss turned 50 on wed the 29th of November. He isn’t open about this stuff, but I have befriended his wife – mwhahaha. She told me so I just had to decorate his office. I had balloons, streamers, banners, signs, and jokes all over it. He got a good laugh out of it. It didn’t cost me much at all do to either since I made a lot of it with my printer and markers. I forgot to take a picture of the container of suckers that says 50 sucks, but yeah, there was one. I was glad for my Photoshop knowledge. I was also glad for my co-worker and friend, Isaac, for being around and helping me blow up all the balloons. I would have died doing it! I just did one and it sucked! He almost passed out doing it. lol My favorite sign was the one that said ‘Look who is all grown up and ready for a Colonoscopy!” Hahaha
I’ve been working really hard to clean out my paraphernalia room. I use to put anything that didn’t go anywhere else into this room but I got tired of the way it looked and I wanted it to be more inviting for guests. I got rid of one of the bookshelves and I plan to donate a lot of my manga to the library. It is a hard decision but I tend to buy any of my books now on my kindle or just online reading such as webtoons.com. The ones I plan to give to the library are stories that won’t ever be finished because tokyopop went under or because the author stopped, like Nana and Gakuen Alice.
I put my sewing machine in a closet because, let’s face it, I’m not doing a lot of sewing feeling like this. However, it will not be hard to get it out and put it on the table in the dining room to do any sewing later. I put away my printer because I fucking hate printers. DX I have one for when I cave and have to print something but meh, I keep it unplugged and in the closet now. Ever since I did that we can actually use the other door in the room that leads to the bathroom. LOL Stupid printers! I also took out the elliptical machine because… yeah forget cardio for now. I have it on the back porch and I plan to cover it to protect it from the elements. If I ever want to exercise my duplex village now has an exercise room so no need for a gym membership.
I bought a mattress for the room so now all I got to get is a box spring to put under it. I want the bed to be pretty low to the floor. I will take pictures once the room is the way I want it to be. I’ve already got plenty of sheets and blankets for it but I hope to (over time) get cute pillows to decorate on it. I say over time because I don’t have the money for be buying 10-20 dollar pillows in big amounts, lol. The mattress was pretty cool because it came in a box. It was very satisfying see it blow up into a regular mattress and it feel pretty comfy. Way better than an air mattress. That is a big junk of my Christmas present to my sister and her husband.
On the Christmas note, I’m not sure if I’m going to get around to making a Christmas video this year. If I do, it will be short like my very first one. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas! ♥
P.S. I plan to do another blog entry filled with picture of my place since I’ve made so many changes. I might also make a little video walk-through. It will probably happen after all the Holidays so it can be in it’s usually state. I’m mostly writing this here so remind myself since I tend to be very forgetful lately. ha
