So many things have changed. Some good, some bad, and yet others still remain the same.
I’m a creature of habit so the sameness/oldness crap may need to stick around solely for my sanity. Not to mention that perfection (ha) can’t be achieved overnight!
It is a new year, like you guys didn’t already know that one.
Its still a new life I’m living here in New Hampshire. Still old/same stuff going on here in my new life, though.
G has decided to quit drinking and smoking. o.m.f.g….. Not both at once. If he actually quits the drinking thing then I have to quit smoking. Damn. Me and my ‘deals’ with the devil.
Still love my job at Best Buy. So glad the holiday season is over. Too many people, too many not being jolly. Whew. God bless the retailers, ev-er-y one of them/us!
My computer is biting the dust. I am currently running Ubuntu on it now by force, not choice. I love Linux, but it has been awhile since I’ve used it and it has changed a lot. I also can’t remember how to tweak anything or what programs to use for what now. Sad days… There was a time when that would have gotten me all charged up – you know, when I was a bored, useless, have to find something to fill my time homemaker.
Discovered that I get the hiccups when I come in from outside. Wow, didn’t know that quick temperature changes to the stomach could cause them. Strange, I’m totally dressed and don’t have my innards exposed (aka: stomach) so WTF? All I know is that I get them for a brief time when I come inside from the cold.
I am trying random things to keep my skin hydrated and me from acquiring the look I call “rode hard and put up wet”. The weather is harsh here and can age you quickly. I have not only gained 20 pounds since I’ve been here, I have also appeared to gain 20 years of aging on my face and hands…not good for the self-esteem.
My new skin care product is coconut oil. It removes makeup, keeps a barrier from bacteria off my skin, and softens it. Wow. Get this, you can cook with the stuff too!
I was really surprised that it hasn’t broken my face out. I can get near anything that isn’t sterile and it breaks out my face. Mention oil and I break out like a teenager. So far it has helped to heal up the spider bite on my face and also not broken me out. Sweet. Smells pretty good too. I put a little in a small bowl to use as lip balm. It also helps with the dry skin on my nose from all the nose-blowing festivals I seem to have no choice but to attend.
So far so good. Now to find some small containers to spoon this stuff in to so I can bring it with me wherever I go (those nose-blowing festivals are common) and my lips just adore this stuff. Its pretty awesome on my dry hands, too. My hands were so dry that you could see every line, swirl and curve of my fingertips. No need to 10-print me, just take a picture lol. Now, after two days my fingertips are much smoother.
Now that I’ve sincerely bored everyone (including me) to death with this rambling post I’ll hush. I hope to get back to normal blogging soon!
