To those who sent me those lovely glass hearts, thank you! It was a very nice surprise to wake up and find them!
As I have stated recently, I am so afraid to use yeast. Any recipe that calls for yeast, I shy away from it. Teddy told me that it wasn't anything to be afraid of and sent me her recipe for Stickie Vickies. This is how it all went down:( Story and Pictures!Collapse )
I had applied at a company that the M-I-L works at a few times, hoping that having connections would help. I had applied for 5 jobs before I had quit at my other place of work and had never heard anything about them.
Yesterday, I talked with the M-I-L and she told me of another opening at a different branch, about half an hour away. I applied, not really expecting anything to come out of it since that was the history of my other applications.
I received a call today to set up an interview. I am actually interviewing for two jobs, because they think I may be a better fit for another job they have an opening for. The lady I spoke to went ahead and submitted my application for me. I have a meeting with her, and a supervisor on Monday.
Wish me luck!!
Exhausted doesn't even begin to explain how I feel...
I have been helping out my sister for the past few days. She had a miscarriage a little over a week ago and has been put on bed rest for two weeks. And while that normally wouldn't be an issue, she has a one year old and can't take care of. My mom and her mother-in-law have been taking care of her, but my mom went out of town for vacation last week. Since my sister doesn't want to spend too much time with her M-I-L, she called me.
So I have been cooking, cleaning, taking care of a baby, my sister, all that good stuff. And since she doesn't want to be around the M-I-L, I am the one spending the long days with her while her husband is at school.
I love my sister, and I love my nephew. I like the fact that while I am not working, I am still being of use to someone. I don't mind helping out and I am enjoying the extra time that I get to hang out with her.
That being said, there is a reason that I don't have a child. I don't have the patience for them. I don't particularly enjoy them too much. They are too much work. I tend to view them as little adults, and they definitely aren't. A one year old doesn't really understand reasoning as to why they shouldn't throw their food on the floor.
But, on the upside, my sister and I have been talking about doing a challenge with each other. We both are going to do an exercise program, and hopefully get one of my other sisters in it as well, for 90 days. Whoever loses the most body fat wins. We don't know what the prize will be yet, but just losing the weight is a prize enough for me. And they will help to motivate me for finish out the program. We plan on starting as soon as she is all healed up.
My goodness, I am tired.

I'm running a test to see who's reading my posts. So, if you read this, leave me a one-word comment about your day that starts with the third letter of you LJ USERNAME. Only one word please. The repost so I can leave a word for you. Don't just post a word and not copy - that's not as much fun.
If you haven't heard of Downton Abbey, it is a complete must watch. It has a fantastic story-line with plenty of drama and humor.
Maggie Smith is also in it, and she delivers some of the greatest one-liners I have ever heard. One of these was on the last episode that I watched, which I have now decided to adopt as my personal life motto. 'I am a woman; I can be as contrary as I choose.'
Well, today started off well enough.
But then it went to hell. Applied for a job online, and instead of the whole 'If we don't respond withing two weeks, then we have found someone more qualified, but we will keep your resume on file' message. No, as soon as I finished the questionnaire, I got a message saying that I didn't fit their qualifications for the job, but I can apply again in six months.
Then I made some gifs of Closet Land, when I uploaded them on Tumblr, they look like crap, but they look fine on my computer, and I haven't had issues like this with my other ones that I have made.
And just now, while making myself dinner, I dropped six eggs on the floor. Luckily, I had just enough to make my dinner. But still, SIX eggs. On my floor.
And the Hubs keeps hounding me on finding a job. I don't think that he understands that as soon as he leaves for work in the afternoon, I am searching for a job. I have told him that, but he still gets on my case.
And my dad got on me the other day about not having a job yet the other day. And my sisters got on me about quitting, and questioned Britt about it, and they don't think that my job was that bad.
I know I'm just feeling sorry for myself right now and that this will eventually pass; I just needed to vent.
Your result for The 3 Variable Funny Test ...
your humor style:
the Prankster(48% dark, 38% spontaneous, 32% vulgar)
CLEAN | COMPLEX | LIGHT
Your humor has an intellectual, even conceptual slant to it. You're not pretentious, but you're not into what some would call 'low humor' either. You'll laugh at a good dirty joke, but you definitely prefer something clever to something moist.
You probably like well-thought-out pranks and/or spoofs and it's highly likely you've tried one of these things yourself. In a lot of ways, yours is the most entertaining type of humor because it's smart without being mean-spirited.

I now officially have a tumblr account. Check it out! http://justpinkpastel.tumblr.com/
I created it because I wanted to create some work that was over the 40kb limit here for icons, and I wanted my work to be spread to some audiences that I wouldn't normally be able to reach. I only started a few days ago, but I have some great AR work up. You all should really check it out!
If you have a tumblr, let me know so I can follow you, too!
