Feb 2- Last day of Intercession! 99.9% in the class. WOO! Realized its been one month and a day without soda. And after my late shift at work, when I got home, hubby greeted me in the kitchen as I came in. He told me my hair looked nice which threw me off. He doesn't just give out compliments. I asked him why. He told me he didn't know, it just did, and that I looked pretty. I had just looked in the rear view mirror on my way out of the car and thought I looked tired and old. So it was especially out of nowhere for me. I admit it made me blush and get a little smile on my face.

If I finish my personal statement for the scholarship fund at my school I am hoping to get some personal sewing done this weekend. I am really close to finishing my linen GoT dress. If I finish that up, it'll be a new costume for Cons, and completely from my stash. Which would be nice. Its also a UFO finished. My plan is to finish that, start my Vernet dress, and to embroider a few baby bibs for a friend who is having a baby. I can't believe Spring semester starts again on Monday!!!!! My photography class is being threatened to be dropped. Not enough people enrolled. Which sucks. I like the creative outlet.
Right now I am enrolled in ASL3, Human Sexuality, and Trigonometry. Yea... I know... another Math class. Ugh. I am waitlisted for another Psych class, Intro to Counseling. If I get into that one also, I am ahead of the game for my AA-T in Psych. Then I need to figure out if the Trig counts for the degree or I need one more Math.

February 1- I have a couple so I'm going to post them all. Sometimes you need the extras to balance things.
-because of the weather Hubby had to stay home from work. So after I got up to get ready for school I came back in the room to find Little curled up with him. I should have taken a picture. It was cute.

Finished sewing a piece for my Dad. It's fun to help him with the projects he comes up with, especially since he always helps me with mine.

My Happiness Jar post for Jan 24 can be summed up in this pic.

Costuming, friends, actually danceing a little bit, and feeling pretty!
Jan 24, 2016- Finishing my Art appreciation presentation at a resonable hour, so I don't feel like a failure who skipped town to play pretty pretty princess and didn't finish her homework.
And a more thorough Jane Austen evening run down with more pics. )

I know I have been pretty glum and had to find things to post for this. But past couple days have been pretty good so I may add a couple things on some days.
Jan 15 - going out to dinner with former co-workers. Having adult conversations that did not revolve around school work. And then coming home to play video games until 4 am, because I could. Video games and reading use to be a big part of my life. Then I discovered sewing so they took a back burner. Then I got jobs or started school that sucked up my time and the only hobby I could manage (and as you guys know that suffers when I am extremely busy). I need to put more of them back into my life.
Jan 16 - went into the big city, Bakersfield to find an Apple store for my hubby. We choose to go that way instead of towards L.A. for something new. Going up and over the mountains is kind of spectacular. Or side is all desert, as you descend the other side you are in rolling lush green hills, which then turn into flat farmland. I can't remember the name of the book I read in high school that describes characters during the great depression coming through the desert and up these exact mountains into the farmlands. If I am taken aback now I can only image it then. And yes I realize I am a huge nerd, remembering a book from high school when I see that sight.

It's really hard to keep this up daily when some days are really really sucky. 2 days in a row I've had to wake up hours before my alarm goes off to mop floors because water is over flowing in the bathrooms from my hubby showering. We think the god-daughters blocked the pipe. Hubby thought he fixed it yesterday but no.... And last night Little had a weird episode that maybe a seizure??? I'm not sure if that was what it was because not all the dots that for me to say yea for sure were present. Whatever it was scared me to death. And I was rudely reminded he will not live forever. Which I don't want to think about, not my baby boy. I have tears rolling down my checks just typing this. I've forbidden him from ever doing it again. We are keeping an eye on him and if it happens again we'll take him to his arch enemy, the vet.
Okay so happy moments:
Jan 10: my costuming closet had enough bling and capes to make 3 very happy princesses
Jan 11: First thing of the year finished. Designed by the god daughters.

After putting away groceries, realizing my whole fridge is full of good for me foods.

Jan. 1 - Hubby deciding we could come home after the temple instead of going to Hollywood to eat with his family. Not having to try and find parking and the stress associated with that and his family was a huge relief.
Jan. 2. - Deciding I could take a nap and it was okay and then having Little jump up and collapse into my arms with purrs. He stayed in my arms the entire time I napped, even letting me turn to my other side without leaving.
