I can't believe this has been so long since I wrote anything in here. I've been writing a lot lately and it feels great to finally get the strange ideas in my head down. :D

I'm planing a "yard sale" to get rid of a few things in my exchange thread. I need to re finance my quest for Commons since I haven't had the chance to play the games like I used to every day for months.

This jar looks like complete garbage now with photobuckets bs.

*sigh*

I'm not sure what I can really do about it other than take out the offending images.

Chris is still looking for a job. :(

There, That's one of my threads "Redone". Even if it's just my exchange thread for now. XD I still have Quest thread, Runway and this jar. One or even one half, per week until Halloween and It'll be back to being a good thread person.

It's going to be my girls Birthday soon. Only a few weeks away. I'm not sure what we're going to do for it. Chris is still jobless. >.< However, he has an interview on the 6th that I'm really hoping he'll get. It's perfect for him but h has to pass an aptitude test, which is really hard for people with ADHD. I hope he passes the test. :(

Edit:
I got my quest thread up and going again too. :D and I got a cute new gift art today.

I got the front page of this thread up to snuff. So that's another thread off the list. I just took the avatars out, I can't remember when the avatars I have saved were made so I'm just going to leave them blank. I did a bunch of Highlight Updates to the front page. I think that only leaves my runway thread, which got hit the hardest by this whole photobucket disaster.

We went to the garden again today. . .More on that later.

I had a couple day break from Mene. Mostly because of Sunday BBQ's we don't know how many more we'll have this year before it does something crazy like snow. XD

Today I'm going to attempt to make sense of that runway thread of mine. I have a few to start from our last event. Already dreading this. XD

About an hour later, I got 2/13 posts done. I can't spend to much time on this if I want to keep on track with everything else I'm working on. I should have some breakfast first.

I did the first of the weekly updates to my exchange thread. Hopefully I cam keep track of that.

I'm trying by best to get everything done and caught up, but I'm feeling very overwhelmed by things in real life lately.

Chris went to his commissionaires test on Wednesday. He pasted! Thank goodness. Now for a formal interview on Monday and some kind of workshop thing on Wednesday. I really hope this comes through for him and that he isn't going through hops for nothing. Security checks are nuts on this job.

Killing time until the Walking dead is on. Planning out projects for next week. A pretty regular Sunday. My exchange thread is taking a lot of time away from me trying to get the other thread back up. The runway one in particular. I'll try and edit one more post in it later today. For now I have some company to enjoy.

My man is in the kitchen making dinner and it smells so dang good. We're having some kind of beef roast with taters and a salad. I'm SO ready for this meal to get in my belleh!

I haven't been getting very far in fixing my runway thread lately. >.< I've been super busy. I think I'm at 4/13 posts fixed. Oh boy! Well it'll give me something to do later I guess.

Chris is starting training for his new position today. Since it's security he still doesn't technically have the job, but it'll bring him three steps closer to getting a spot. Eight hours of training for the whole week. He better get this job. If not this is a bunch of wasted time, frustration, and gas money.

I have a bit of a To do list today. Nothing I can't handle...hopefully. XD
  • 1hr Workout 7:45
  • 1hr Warm up (art wise) 9:45
  • Dying pants (about 2 hours) 10:45 The dye didn't take.
  • Horn pattern (about 1 hours)11:45
  • Cut horn pattern (5 hr) 4:45
  • Glue horns (1 hr) 5:45
  • Multi staff Mene projects (fill in gaps during glue dry time)
  • If I have time 1 post of my Runway thread

Update!
The dye didn't take well to the fabric so I'll have to do it all over. >.< So the pants are on hold until I can figure something out with the situation. On the plus side I found the perfect top and already have the corset for it. I'm going to break down the pieces tomorrow so I can get a % done thing going.

So yesterday was both good and bad for being productive on this costume. The dye I used wasn't the right kind for the fabric, so it all washed out. Stupid mistake. But I'm determined to try again. It should be easy enough to correct. That was the bad part of yesterday.

The good was I found an old blouse that would work perfectly for this look with some adjustments. Just a bit of lace and some beading and it should be good. So yay for small victories.

Yesterday I said I was going to break down the costume so I could figure out how much I've done on it % wise. We'll see again at the end of the week how much of this I can get done. Here goes;

Horns 40%
Coif 20%
Goggles 90%
Choker 20%
Blouse 60%
Corset 100%
Gloves 0
Pants 50%
Boots 0
Cane 0
Wings 0

  • 1hr Workout / shower
  • 1hr Warm up (art wise)
  • Buy the right dye
  • Dye Pants again >.<
  • Glue horns (ya if it weren't for the long drying time this would be done)
  • Multi staff Mene projects (fill in gaps during glue dry time)
  • If I have time 1 post of my Runway thread

It was meet the teacher tonight. It was largely a waste of time, since we already found out most of the information on our own, but it's a necessary evil. Networking...even in high school. I don't know why I get so anxious and worked up before these things. Lilith has way more of a clue than I did when I was her age and better grades as well.

We took a look at a few different extra curricular activities she could join this year. Including apprenticeship programs. Which she was the most interested in because they give money as well as experience. She said it'll give her a good job while deciding what career she really wants. We also had a scholarship meeting with the guidance councilors.

We're just chilling at home now with Pumpkin spice lattes. Feeling happy.

We also talked about what she wants to wear for graduation. . . It's not very traditional, but I'm open to it. She wants to go in a Tux. *shrugs* I never went to my grad because I was 7 months pregnant, even though I graduated with honors. I felt like it would be to much stress on the baby with my social anxiety to go to the thing and find a prom dress. I went to the convocation and that was it.

Chris is coming over tonight and I'm excited. I got a lot of my work done already and I still have like 6-8 hours till he gets here. Feeling accomplished today and ready for more today. :D

WHOO! Heck maybe I'll get to that thread I've been putting off.

Chris got the job, and then got offered a better full time position. They even have a gym he can join for $1 a month as part of his benefits package. I'm so proud and happy for him. Sad thing is he starts this Friday when he'd normally be coming over, and works 5 on 3 off. So anything we had planned for this weekend isn't happening now. Oh well. Will give me lot's of time to work on the cosplay/pixel stuff for Halloween.

We're going to the garden today. Time to take in the babies indoors before the frost gets them.

The costume is coming together nicely. However, I had a realization that I would need a fan to complete it because I'm not used to wearing hats and this one is made out of foam. Better I thought of it now than die from heat latter.

Horns 100%
Coif 75%
Goggles 100%
Choker 100%
Blouse 100%

Corset 100%
