Well. Kind of.
I bought myself a laptop which makes writing entries at least 30x easier. I’ve always found that journaling is easiest for me when I can just brain-dump, stream-of-consciousness whatever is on my mind. Unfortunately pen and paper doesn’t work when my brain and hands can’t keep up with each other.
Anyway, No promises but I’m going to try to start writing here again. I fell off for many reasons. It felt too personal writing when the one person who I know will read it started living with me. It’s silly especially considering that there is nothing I can write here that we haven’t either directly or indirectly talked about.
No clue where I left off but like… I’m back?
I officially got laid-off “temporarily for an indefinite amount of time” on June 26th. I got my last paycheck on July 3rd and I’m not gonna lie, I’m terrified. I still have my nanny kids twice a week but not getting that almost 500 every two weeks is a big deal. I’ve applied for unemployment to hold me over until I can go back but who knows if I’ll actually get approved. I dunno. I’m more worried about it than I let on. I hate money worries. I have enough saved up that I am fine but at the same time that is so we can move into our own place. UGH,.. I got this, no biggie. I should be applying elsewhere, probably, but my nanny job is enough to hold me over for now and I’m enjoying the freedom to spring clean and get my life under control. Plus this way I have time to do things I actually enjoy.
I’m one of those people who was excited about quarantine because it meant that I’d have time to do all those billion things on my to-do list that never get done.
My sister, brother-in-law and nephew were here for the first time since he was born from the 30th-6th. I am head-over-heals in love with that little boy. I’m such a proud aunt and I can’t get over how much he means to me. I didn’t know it was possible to love someone this much....and he’s not even mine!!! Lord help us when I eventually have kids haha. He’s going to be 7 months old in 2 days! Time is F L Y I N G. I need to make a book for him on here. I want to remember all the little things. Especially because he lives so far away. We did SO MUCH tiedye while they were down here. It took me an hour and a half to rinse everything and I still have two sheets waiting in walmart bags to be rinsed haha. They better come out vibrant!
Anyway, This is Ollie and me.
And here is one of Protector and Ollie because I absolutely adore their interactions:
We went to a party with our friends on the 4th and I had such a great time! I woke up feeling awful (not hungover, getting my period like a week and a half late) and antisocial. Just, cranky. I might write an entry about the whole thing later, right now I’m too tired haha
Our walmart finally had acrylic paint yesterday so I bought a buuuuuunch. I think I bought like 14 colors or something. I’ll have to recount. I also bought brushes and a water color sketchbook. After we got done with our nightly animal crossing routine I decided to draw what I intend to pain on Protector’s nintendo switch case. I used water color from a kit my brother gave me for christmas (that I never used…oops!) to color it in and I am SO FREAKING PROUD OF IT. and myself for starting and following through with something all in one day.
That’s all I can think of for now. I need to go take a shower and feed the hoarde but I’m not quite ready yet. Maybe I’ll do one of those survey thingies. Hmm…
Anyway, if you stuck around this long, thank you! I hope you have a fantastic night, day, whatever time it is for you!!!
