Three deep! XD @ 10:16 pm

Current Mood: giddy giddy

If you're wondering about the title, no not referring to the nasty urban definition, although I am feeling quite euphoric! LOL! I got to watch three shows today! (which is a record for me :P) So I'm living three deep in fandom love LOL! (And I just thought it was fun to make those of you that saw the title wonder what the hell I was talking about *snerk* I'm a jerk, I know ;)

So the day was going pretty well. Had an okay day at work and got home at a decent time. I had just sat down to get comfortable when my dad called to tell me that my cousin, Ben, was found dead around midnight last night. No one is really sure what happened, but his girlfriend said she had left him on the couch to go to bed getting up in the middle of the night to check on him because he hadn't come to bed only to find him dead on the floor in his own vomit :( I spoke to his mom, and they think it may have been suffocation due to the fact he'd been drinking, but they won't know until the autopsy comes in. My cousin and I haven't been very close since we were kids as life goes on around us and everyone gets busy doing their own life things and kind of loses touch, but I am very sad to know I'll never see him again. I feel worse for his 8 and 12 year old daughters who not only lost him but on the 3rd lost their maternal grandmother... it's a tough pill to swallow. I'd like to go to the funeral, but it's going to be in MA, and I just don't have the money to make a trip like that on such short notice :(

Current Mood: bouncy bouncy

This week has just flown by! I honestly don't know where the hours went! I haven't posted my positive updates since last Friday, so I'll try to sum up the week...

Let the friending commence! @ 10:23 pm

Current Mood: ecstatic ecstatic

So ashmedai and I were chatting the other night about folks remarking on the 'death' of LJ, and he made a friending meme post today that I wanted to share and maybe you guys will find it worthy of passing along or at least answering the questions here. It seems more likely to meet folks with similar interests through friends they have... saying you aren't already friends of course! :)

Meme below the cut!

Quickie good feels! XD @ 08:38 pm

Trying to keep up the trend of positive postings (before I forget them day to day as I really have a horrid memory! 0o)


1)Got a two hour nap! Nox didn't sleep much, so it balanced out to getting a more awake (less miserably tired) work day Friday.

2)Spent some time farting around on Deviant Art to clear out the massed amount of updates and answering comments. Got through a few more emails in my inbox trying to whittle down the amount unanswered/looked at emails. I'm really hoping to catch them up when I'm on my 13 days without school stint.

3)Got Jason and my Halloween costumes in the mail and tried them on Wednesday (still waiting on my corset to finish the outfit and then I have to look into accessories :P) Lucian got his on Thursday, and Nox's came today! *squee!* Our little family of pirates has been made! There will be pictures around Halloween time to be sure Yarg! ;)


1) I got off work at 2:30PM today, so I felt like my day was a little more spent with family verse at work. I also got to check today (meaning a little break from the hecticness of the office, and everything went smoothly! Hence the getting off at 2:30 ;)

2) Took the family out to dinner for Mexican with Scott (our roommate just got back from his week long trip to corporate, so we got to shoot the shit about his trip) Lucian behaved for the most part (which lately he's been acting out a lot if we go out to eat... got to love age 3!

3) I didn't take a nap, but I don't feel like a zombie! I wasn't able to enjoy my online time as much yesterday because I was feeling so out of it like my wits were having a hard time catching up :P I'm listening to my Grooveshark favorites and just enjoying my internet time (because I'm a total addict you know LOL! :P) One more day of work! And D&D night to look forward to tomorrow! Yay! =D

Book Meme @ 09:40 pm

Current Mood: contemplative contemplative

[profile] ficwriterjet posted this meme, and I thought it'd be fun, hopefully you guys will as well :)

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!

...a little late is better than never @ 11:04 pm

Current Mood: satisfied satisfied

I was going on a pretty good clip with my positive posts, but Thursday was just absolutely horrid, and I was pressed to see the positive. Thinking back though, I got to sit down and read a couple books with Lucian where Nox was equally interested.

Spending time with the kids is always a plus. I honestly can't even remember anything more about that day other than it was draining. The days that followed were not bad but super hectic, so I just didn't have time to reflect and post. So, I'll do a brief catch up here as well as share a couple pics of the cat family (since I haven't shared pics of them in forever and [personal profile] ashmedai had wanted to see a pic of Kit-Kat (the female tabby that I've been told is a rarity :D)

The positiveness continues! @ 08:00 pm

Current Mood: bouncy bouncy

...Brought to you by the letter P and the number 6! XD Can you tell I live with a toddler? LOL!

1) I was exhausted this morning... Nox was tossing and turning and my nose was chafed from blowing it all night last night. I was dreading work with only 2.5 hours of sleep, but the day actually went really smoothly. I didn't really feel like I was going to fall out like some days, and I think a lot of that was because I stayed pretty busy. My boss complimented Shannon and I for doing a great job right before I left which always makes me feel good. (I've also consecutively gotten at least an hour over 8hrs every day (since they have Shannon and I working six days but only really want us putting in 8hrs, I'm really looking forward to that pay check next week! Woot! =D)

2) Came home to the family and actually got in the pool with Lucian (verse watching from outside the pool... which is half the time :P) Of course we played with his new toy fish, and we also played catch with his water football when he wasn't demanding I piggyback him around the pool LOL! He made me get my exercise for sure! Jason made us a really nice meal of baked well seasoned tilapia and french cut green beans while Nox and I relaxed on the bed to breast feed after Lucian and I got our showers and played the daily color game (I have a ceramic fox cookie jar I picked up from Cracker Barrel (if you don't know, I absolutely ADORE foxes!) it hold a bunch of M&M's, and it's a 'game' Lucian wants to play every time he is brought to the bathroom to point at it and yell" FOX!" of course! :P

3) I made today my kick back and relax day after finishing my student responses for the discussion board. I've been dying to catch up on my emails, and the first thing I did was read the next chapter to a wonderful story ficwriterjet has been writing for me! She is amazingly good to me! *snuggles her tight!* It's a Once Upon a Time fic based off a plot bunny I had, and she has turned it into so much more! Please give her some love and check out the win! --->

Now then, I'm going to do my best to widdle down the over 130 emails I have currently in my inbox! 0o

Tag! Day 5 @ 11:58 pm

Current Mood: blank blank [personal profile] ashmedai. Here's the deal: The rule: during the next five days, post three positive things about your day and ask three people to do the same so the positive attitude can gain some ground.

Day 5 already... this has been a fun meme, and in moments through the day where I've felt depressed, I can say doing this little daily reminder of the positive in my life has helped to keep my spirits up.

I'll apologize in advance if I've not tagged somebody! If I didn't tag you, it was most likely because I didn't think you'd be that interested in the meme. If you are, please do participate tag or not as it really has been an uplifting experience :)

1) Hung out with Lucian by the pool for half an hour when I got home from work to see how elated he was to get this little mechanized fish we bought him last night at Wal-Mart. He kept trying to catch it in his bucket and asking for help LOL! He's so damn cute ;)

2) I got a 2 hour nap! Oh man did I need that! I was starting to feel really down and irritable, and that's usually due to the fact I never sleep enough... like now where it's 11:30PM and I'm typing this up... and will try to answer a couple emails LOL! (That's okay, I need at least 30 minutes to unwind before bed for myself)

3) I finished my outline! *squee!* That thing ate up the entirety of my evening, but now it's done! I feel that it's pretty thorough, so writing the draft this Friday should go pretty smooth as all references are aligned with topics and APA is already done... have I mentioned I really hate doing APA? :P As a side note, I got an A on my last assignment (I check for grade postings every day because I'm OCD like that LOL! 0o)

P.S. I kind of like doing this daily pick me up outside of a meme, do you think if I kept it up outside of this meme that it would become a bit daunting for you guys? There are a few people on my list that post daily that I enjoy keeping up with, but I've had others that it became encumbering, and I ultimately gravitated away from because they posted several times a day and I just couldn't keep up anymore. I just never want to become 'that person' to you. I do try to keep my posts short and sweet so as not to be burdening.

Let me know what you think, and be honest, it won't hurt my feelings!
Hells yeah! Every day baby!
Um... Maybe every couple days?
Once a week is a happier medium
No one wants to hear that much about your daily life! Just post when you've got art, fic, or substantial shit to say!

Tag! Day 4 @ 10:27 pm

Current Mood: sore sore [personal profile] ashmedai. Here's the deal: The rule: during the next five days, post three positive things about your day and ask three people to do the same so the positive attitude can gain some ground.

Every day your breathing is a good day...

It's been a rough day, but taking a moment to ponder the positive gives me a little zen.

1) Decided Friday was going to be a shredded chicken taco pot luck with a few co-workers! It'll be nice to get social as the fact I'm breast feeding means all of my breaks are usually spent alone holed up in a back office, so I can pump milk for Mr. Nox (which he fully appreciates :P)

2) Technically this was a plus for yesterday, but when we sat down to watch shows last night I saw two awesome things, #1 Boardwalk Empire is back! *squee!* (or it's a special before the premier, but still, I've been looking forward to it since last season as I've always had a particular love for gangsters) and #2 The season finale of The Leftovers was ready for us to watch! =D (I'd thought maybe the last episode we saw was the finale because there was no show last Sunday, so it was a pleasant surprise to see another episode to conclude the season a bit better... not to say there aren't still a million questions, but I kind of expect that from the writers that also worked on LOST. Hopefully they will tie this show up better than they did that one since it's on a premium channel.

3) Lucian was atrocious last night, so much so that he ended up brushing his teeth and going straight to bed once we got home from dinner last night. Today he was pretty well behaved getting to go swimming (while I took a 45 minute nap! YAY!) Then we went grocery shopping at Wal-Mart and Sams where we also got a slice of pizza because shopping ran pretty late. Because he was a good boy though, we watched the potty video (with so many horrible potty puns! LOL!) He was excited to see his big boy underwear, and we let him wear a pair over his diaper the one time tonight to hopefully keep him excited about using the potty.

P.S. (to [profile] ficwriterjet I saw they had Veronica Mars the movie on one of the premium channels, so I set it to record; it's on my DVR now for later viewing. I look forward to chatting with you about it when I do! =D
