Yay a semi-personal post! A brief thing about life in the last year. Last year my husband and I separated, the kids and I ended up going to a homeless ranch out in Yamhill. Then I slept on the floor of some neighbors houses for a few days, then we ended up staying with some friends for like 3 months. Now the kids and I are sharing an apartment with my mom. Which is not the greatest thing but it’s better than other options. I am currently going through disability appointments and what not.
Sascha’s school is setting up a plan for him for when he starts 7th grade. So hopefully things will be easier for him. He is doing excellent in his new school getting all A’s and B’s and only one C. So much better than his last school. Fumiko is doing well. She likes her new school. She was being bullied by another girl but that is getting solved. I can’t believe she’ll be starting first grade later this year. Sheesh.
I just got back from the ER a little bit ago. My knee just went limp while I was walking out of my room and fell. I mangled myself. I some how twisted the crap out of my foot. They took x-Rays and whatnot, fortunately it’s just a bad sprain. Though the dr said it will take around six weeks to fully heal. Ugh. I was already feeling awful. Thanks knee. Now that things are settling down, I will have more time to actually blog and swatch and do stuff.
I have been working on an indie shop list and just started working on an indie blogger list. So feel free to email me or comment with shops you don’t see on the list or your blog if you blog about indie stuff. The shop list is barely started. I have so much to add and I’ve only been working on the cosmetics list. I still have to do perfume and bath and body and other lists. Oh my. I have lots to swatch so look forward to that becoming a regular thing again.
I hope everyone is doing well!
Just a note to let you know blog will be going down on the 24th, for how long I’m not sure. Starting on the 26th I will no longer have internet, for how long? I’m not sure on that either. So just a warning.
So as I’m sure most of you noticed the blog was down for a few days. I wasn’t able to make payment. Boo. But the hosting company graciously extended my due date to the 24th, so hopefully then. Lots of things have been going on in my personal life. Really big one is my husband and I are separated and the kids and my mom and I have to be out of the house by the 1st. Still trying to find a place to go and applied for a TANF grant this week. So it’s been a struggle. Life, how does it work? Things will be wonky for awhile as I’m not sure what will be happening. But anyways. New indie reddit group and feel free to join my facebook group! WeLoveIndiePretties and Makeup Monstrosity!
I hope everyone is doing well and having a good start to the new year so far. Monthly challenges are back up in Makeup Monstrosity. Hopefully more people will participate this year. Thanks Lovelies!
I’ve got a few things planned as far as blog posts go. A post about blackheads and the nifty foot peely things. I find people asking about the foot peely things, not sure where to get them, let a lone how to use them when they do. Hooray! FEETS! I’ve been doing “research” about blackheads and what not. So hopefully it’ll be a helpful post for someone. In addition to my body trying to destroy me as usual, I caught a sick. I haven’t been able to keep anything down, even water, and the pain, oh the pain. I’ve been having to take a double dose of my sleep medication just to get into bed and feel sleepy. Sick sucks yo.
But yes. I have things floating around in my brains. My Ottlite makeup mirror *finally* came. Now I just have to actually put stuff on my face. Also, blargh, I am still waaaaay behind on swatching all the things. It’s very overwhelming. I need to just jump in head first and hope I am capable of doing nice swatches. Also, in case you didn’t notice, there’s a link to my makeup group ^up there somewhere on the menu. With the help of other awesomely people, I have compiled a large, gigantic, ginormous document of indie companies with shop links and facebook links. So yeah. You should totally go check that out. No pressure. Now I shall go make some tea and hope the burning sand that I feel in my eyeballs goes away. Dontcha hate it when you get super, duper tired and it feels like someone poured molten sand into your balls? Yeah that. It’s quite annoying.
TEAL DEER: Whine, whine, whine I suck and have posts running around my head. I promise I haven’t forgotten, the blog anyways, my brain is another story.
MY BRAAAAIN! COME BACK!!!
