A Week in the Life

.~*.*~.~*.*~.~*.*~.~*.*~.~*.*~.

It's the end of the school year so things are SUPER BUSY right now. D:
Last week I didn't do a Sunday Post because I was lazy and didn't work on the post as the week went on. Oops.

.~*.*~.~*.*~.~*.*~.~*.*~.~*.*~.

Mother's day was nice. It was a little boring, but nice.
I got two cards, 2 picture frames, and a new ereader with a skin.


The skin is from this artwork by Aimee Stewart.
Unfortunately, she does not have a good picture of this piece on her site, so I linked to DecalGirl. The back of the ereader actually has a better view of it!

Took my daughter to the Orthodontist. O_O
It was not as terrible as I thought it might be. It was just a consultation and completely free.
I am already liking it more than a regular dentist because they are completely transparent with the costs. We don't get charged for extra appointments or anything. What we agree to pay is what it costs for anything related to this thing. She goes in for the beginning of "phase 1" on Monday.

The internet went out Thursday and didn't come back for a solid 24 hours. You would think I would get more stuff done, but I stream for background noise! D:

I did get a new reader, but while it did have some things on it. It didn't have a lot. ^^; Still found something to read, but I'm used to hundreds of choices. Not less than 10.
In hindsight, I could have just used the old one. 🤦

So my reliance on the internet may need some tuning.

The fridge broke last week! I had to throw out half the food. It was caught early enough that it wasn't a huge issue, but I had an open bag of frozen chicken that leaked "juice" everywhere. There was no way I was saving anything that touched. Luckily, we had enough to cover the loss of food. The apartment complex replaced the fridge (yay!). Although it opens on the left instead of the right. This actually works better with the kitchen layout and it only confused me for a couple of days.

My daughter's Drama Club performance finally happened so now she only has one more club meeting (a cast party). They did The Tempest (for kids). I am not really familiar with the Tempest, but it was kind of cute.

My daughter complained for months that she doesn't want to do drama next year because she had only a couple of lines.
We saw the play. She was the Boatswain and she was the main speaker for the first 5 minutes of the play. She had several lines, she just wasn't the main focus. O_O

Currently waiting on the school to release the school supply list! They usually release it before school ends. We have to supply the books so I want to try and order from Thriftbooks this time. I could have done it last year, but I waited too long to get them here guaranteed by the time school started. (oops) This year, I'm poised and waiting. Unfortunately, they change the books around a lot so I can't go based on last year.

I actually love what they pick out at this school so I'm excited to find out what the list is.

Almost forgot...
Went and paid someone to cut my hair, then dyed it myself.
(Quitting my job means I can dye my hair whatever color I choose)

I really need to learn how to take good selfies.

Playing

.~*.*~.~*.*~.~*.*~.~*.*~.~*.*~.


If you haven't played or heard of this one, a loose description of it is "2d minecraft", but it's really a lot more than that.
It's my go to for when I really stressed out. I have been having problems really focusing and something about this game allows me to actually just concentrate on it.
My husband will sit and watch me play AND ask questions. Trying to get him to play with me since you can do multiplayer, but he won't. 

(Not hating on minecraft by any means. I like that game as well, but the first person perspective just makes me nauseous and gives me headaches.)

  1. I love your hair! I am allergic to hair dyes, now, so my daughter puts in a purple streak on the left, which has none of the ingredients of dye that I react to. (Note photo here).

    I am now sitting here wondering when my fridge will go out...LOL. I've lived in this condo for 11 years...and the fridge wasn't new when I moved in!

    The good news: the management will have to replace it when it goes. Smile.

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. It's nice that there is some sort of dye you can use! Love the purple. My daughter wants purple in her hair this summer instead of pink like last year.

      That is a bonus for living in an apartment setting. Some appliance dies... they get you a new one. No charge!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Glad you had a nice Mother's Day! The ereader skin looks pretty! You'd think we'd get more done when internet goes down, right? But it never works that way for me either. I just spend the whole time stressing about the internet being down, haha. Sorry about the fridge problems, but glad it worked out alright. Your hair look awesome!

    1. Exactly! If I didn't stream things as background noise, I don't think it would be a big deal, but I do so... yeah. May need to do something about that.

      That is a plus for apartment living. It's not my stuff so they have to replace it. This fridge isn't even new. I think they pulled it from an empty one. O_O

      Thank you and thanks for stopping by!

  3. I love the hair. It sounds like you’ve been busy. I always miss the Internet when it’s down, but when I get it back, I don’t want it anymore. It’s stressful. Have a good week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Thanks! And yep. I've been doing a lot of back and forth I almost don't get to sit and do anything. I have been playing a lot of Terraria, but it's just too much stuff going on that I need to be able to focus on something that isn't a stress.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. This is a crazy time of year, seems like, with school getting out and all that. and yay for the new fridge, although sorry to hear about the old one and the lost food. That would be tough!

    Ooh Terraria! That looks fun. I need a game like that, where you can just play and relax and it's not all involved like some of the other video games. Sometimes relaxing is good! :)

    Have a great week!

    1. I can't wait for June. But then I'll be stuck in the home with the kids all day so... it will be it's own kind of stressful.

      Terraria is a lot of fun, but there is a steep learning curve! I recommend checking out a couple of guides. One thing it doesn't do like Minecraft is allow you to turn combat off. D: It's a bit daunting the first night. Somehow it is really able to hold my focus and let the stress melt away.

      Thanks for stopping by!
