So my mom ended up having a heart attack a few nights ago, right now I’m not even sure what night it was? She called me at about 4am and asked me to come down. I knew exactly why. She’d been having heart trouble for about 5 hours and hadn’t told me. I went down and ended up calling her friends to come take her to the hospital. It had been a long sore day and I took an extra gabapentin around 2am after I picked Kai up from work. So I wasn’t able to drive. They got there around 530am? They took her immediately to the hospital where they apparently thought her situation was very bad and transported her via ambulance to Providence in Portland. There she found out she had a blood clot in her heart and the left ventricle was severely damaged from the heart attack. They had her on oxygen and she was hooked up with a bajillion wires when we went to visit her. She seemed to be okay and doing better. They ended up keeping her until today. She refused the chest stint and dye test they wanted to do, so they put her on medications instead. I have to go pick up 5 for her tomorrow.
After my mom was checked out she had to stay in the hallway for almost 2 hours waiting for a wheel chair. Really? Are you serious? She flagged down 3 different people and finally the 3rd person went and brought her back a wheel chair so she could leave. Ugh. We waited so long outside the hospital I was afraid they were going to ask us to leave. Thankfully all worked out and she’s home now. The ride home exhausted her, so she’s still pretty done in and has been resting since she got home. Hopefully between the medications and care from her doctor things will be alright. Hopefully.
On a side note I found the most amazing shoes today and no they aren’t flip flops. I know it’s a shocker, I found shoes that aren’t uggs or flip flops. Shhhh. BUT THEY ARE AMAZING! And I need them, like really neeeed them. Behold! Going Batty Maryjane Flats! Aren’t they amazing! Who wants to loan me $35 plus shipping so I can get them?! Also on another note. Kai has decided we are somehow going to save up $1000 by Thanksgiving to go visit his family. Good luck to us. I’m not sure how or if we can successfully do it. But he really, really, really wants to. So that means things are going to be exceptionally way more tight around here. No buying frivalous things like rec specs sports goggles(I kid) or beautiful going batty maryjane flats! I r sad. I will find a way to get those shoes though! If it kills me! And it probably will, and its name will probably be Kai. For now, beautiful, beautiful shoes are on my amazon wishlist. I love you beautiful batty shoes!
When Hi-Fi Cosmetics was on Heartsy I was a little hesitant to snatch up a voucher for it because of the long TAT that I’d heard about from several fellow bloggers, but I decided to go ahead and do it. I ended up getting Slime and Snails, Sound Check, Lost & Lonely, Sex, Drugs & Rock N Roll, Raindrops on Roses and Kokomo. I received Time for Cheer and Ransom Notes as free samples. I received my order just shy of a week after I placed my order. Artfire was a little funky so she had to request the last little bit of money I owed her as I was slightly over my voucher amount. I’m a little torn on my order, and I’ll tell you why. Part of my shadows look different from the swatch photos, now I know that swatches will look a little different from monitor to monitor and sometimes camera’s don’t pick up the colors properly, etc. I was a little sad as I was really looking forward to the colors on the swatches.
Sound Check appeared to have orange/gold glitter and what I received has pink glitter. Lost & Lonely, Kokomo, and Sex, Drugs & Rock N Roll are all much darker than the photos on the listings and Raindrops on Roses is more of a dark coppery rose than the light dusty rose from the swatches. Do I love all of the colors? No, but I do like them. I do love Slime and Snails, Lost & Lonely and Sex, Drugs & Rock N Roll. I was a little disappointed in Kokomo and Raindrops on Roses as I purchased them because they were really light. They aren’t ugly colors, just not what I was expecting. My only other issue was that some of my colors sort of flake and lift off of my primer. I haven’t had this happen before so I’m not sure why. I’ve tried both primers I have and they did it on both. I have yet to try those particular colors on my eyeballs so hopefully they’re fine on my eyes. Once I try them all on my eyeballs I’ll write up an official review! I just wanted to get my swatches up and my thoughts up for now. It’s entirely possible that it’s an issue with both of my primers and that is why the shadows are flaking, but I won’t know that for sure until I have another primer in my hands or try them on mah eyeballs. If anyone has any answers on the flaking/lifting I would love to know! I haven’t contacted the owner of Hi-Fi yet as I was going to wait until I had a chance to try all the shadows on my eyes to see if I even needed to contact her. So uh onto the photos! Also uh I think I labeled Ransom Notes wrong. Whoops. Forgot the s.
Get it tomorrow at 12pm pst! You can see a preview of the colors below! Visit Geek Chic Cosmetics tomorrow to purchase the collection for $31.94.
I prefer to… not leave the house. Driving is really stressful and I’m usually really tired and ready to zonk out by the time I get home. I’ve had an appointment nearly every day this week. Chiropractor appointment on Monday, nothing on Tuesday, doctors visit Wednesday, chiropractor on Thursday, and today? I have my first acupuncture appointment. I really just want to stay home. Actually I’m so tired right now I just want to go back to bed. Also I am quite terrified of being poked. Pain is always worse than it should be, so I’m already worried this is going to hurt really bad when it shouldn’t. Bleh.
On the way home from taking Kai to work I noticed that this one lot that previously has had 2 motorhome sales places, both of which closed down now has a motorhome repair place. I’m curious as to how long it will actually last. Also there’s a place down further on the same street that has a new strip club that opened up recently. It’s the 3rd one that I’ve seen, the previous two seemed to close down after being open for less than a month. haha Good luck businesses!
One last thing. Google Adsense disabled my account for fraudulent activity. :/ I know that it wasn’t from me because I rarely click on my own ads, and when I do it’s to see what something is. I’m not even sure if they count my own clicks as clicks even. If you’ve been clicking on my ads over and over please don’t. If you see something you’re genuinely interested in, by all means click, I appreciate it, but I don’t want to get in trouble if you’re just trying to be helpful. I’ve appealed my account but it can take up to a week according to their email to review my appeal and there is no guarantee they’ll reinstate my account. Furthermore, if they don’t reinstate my account I won’t be paid any of the money I eared, they’ll return it to the advertisers. :/ Which really stinks because I’ve tried not to screw up my account.
When they disabled it previously because they considered my adult product reviews a violation of their ToS I promptly removed anything to do with them and they reinstated my account, so I really hope they’ll check my account and see that I haven’t done anything wrong, because I haven’t, and will reinstate my account. Anyways, I’m pretty annoyed/upset about this. It’s really shitty as it’s one of the only ways I am able to make money so this was a low blow.
