I love shiny things. What girl doesn't? I have been jewelry shopping, or screen shopping, quite a bit lately with all the sales going on. I miss having a box with something pretty in it for me. It's been years since I can recall something like that as it is. I used to want to make my own things, which I still do, but that's also money and creativity I don't really have right now. One thing that my online shopping always requires is Free Shipping. I can't stand paying for shipping on things because it's so much money that I'm losing that could go to something else. I'm sure I'm not alone on this either. It may not be tomorrow, but my box will soon look decent again.

I was poking around and I think that I might team up with someone and get DS this cheap new regal rd-40b roundneck black I saw. I think it's really neat looking but I'm not sure how much I'll be able to spend yet, especially since his birthday is right after Christmas. Last year we gave him a super cool tablet that was super expensive, which he knows that this year will be significantly less lol. At least we were able to give him something great last year.


I've really been going though it lately and most recently I'm trying to recover from a breakdown. It's really been a ride and I'm tired of all the ups and downs. The nice part is that I can think pretty clearly now that I'm not medicated, but the bad is that I still have some motion sickness issues. I'd really just like to be back to normal. I'm just not sure what that is anymore.

Christmas Season

It's so hard picking out gifts sometimes. DS has proven to make simple difficult over the years. He always only likes one or two things at a time and then all the gifts end up having one theme. Lately it's skate or music things, both not entirely cheap. I have been giving him money instead so he could choose how to spend it, but that's not entirely fun either. I saw a yamaha dgx 640 at guitar center that I was thinking about but he might like a guitar more. He's always wanted to learn piano though, so I'm still not sure. Sigh,

Collection Elimination

y grandma had collected so many things over her lifetime that it was hard to decide what could stay and what needed to go. She had everything from spoons and platters to figures and coins with some american eagle silver dollars. Basically, if they made more than one of something, she had them. She even collected German garden gnomes. My uncle recently decided to get rid of some of it to size down the storage unit. It's really sad to watch everything go knowing that I can't continue her hoarding personality.


Today is going to be a really long day. I've already been up for an hour or two, the girls have swim lessons in a couple more, then a couple more after that we have an appointment to go close on the house. I'm really hoping everything goes well. It's been a really rough road and I'm not sure how many more surprises we can take that this point. We're already at least $300 over the payment amount we were supposed to have months ago because of some. It's been a frustrating and upsetting road. I'm just hoping everything works out in the end.

I've been thinking a lot about the house and how I want to decorate it. It'll be a while before we can afford to do a lot that I want to do, but it doesn't always take a lot of money to do it either. Lots of the shows I've been watching have been using industrial things mixed into their design. It's an interesting idea. I really don't like the handles in the kitchen and only the top cabinets have any at all. I was thinking of using something like triangle pointer knobs for some of them. The great thing about the cabinets is that they are extremely plain and I can do pretty much anything with them. That's much easier to work with than something more personalized. I wish I could say the same about the
