...this is a lil late, but...well, I haven't been in the mood to do any updating, tbqh.
thank you to everyone for the bday wishes (and unexpected bday pressies, lol)~
not that most people will care, but bday haul:
telescope (strong enough to see Jupiter *_*)
acrylic paint set (the paint, a painting pad & brushes)
10$ gift card at the half price book store
money (rofl, a check for $29 for 29 years...and me w/o a bank account...ilu mommy XD;; )
gummy bears (*_*)
chocolate cupcake vgift (♥ lub_lub_lub)
something still in the mail from mi shile, Jac~ (no idea what it is ;_;
not a bad haul, especially since (except for the unexpected gifts from lub & shile), everything I got, was actually something that I really REALLY wanted *_*
that being said, my actual bday sucked. Kristy decided to have herself a bitch fit, and oh, guess who it happened to be directed at. yeah. yay. and then later, at like 10pm, right before she was off to bed, THEN she stopped by my "room" and told me "happy birthday...sorry, I kinda forgot:\"
wonderful, huh? -_-* at least she's the one that got me the telescope, and we DID kinda have my bday stuff early, but still. bitchfit on my bday, is NOT my idea of fun.
last weekend...well, actually, two weekends ago, now, was when I had my bday stuff. sis and oikko came out, we out to eat at wendy's (I wanted one of their caramel shakes, omfg, I LOVE THEM), then the book store...couldn't find anything I really wanted, and they didn't have the henna kits anymore, so we left there and went to a couple different stores. finally ended up at walmart (I needed cat litter), with sis bitching the whole time about how I hadn't found anything I wanted, so I drug her over to the art supplies.
I shoved her the acrylic paint set I had been eying, but couldn't justify paying $12+ on something I probably would use ONCE*
. she grabbed it. pointed out some drawing pads...one was especially for acrylic paints, so grabbed that too, and a set of brushes. oh yeah, and some gummy bears on the way out, lol.
* if you know me, you know I SUCK at art. seriously. sis disagrees. I used to kinda scribble, and it came out as abstract, and apparently she's loved a couple of them enough to keep them for herself when I would've just tossed them o.O
anyway, it turns out that I don't completely suck as a painter :O I'm no master, that's for DAMN sure, and it's all abstract so far, but I've actually done a couple that I'm kinda proud of~ once I get a chance, I'll see about scanning them~
she also told me that she's gonna send me her henna kit, cause she still hasn't used it, and she knows I really wanted it, sooo...*_* (yes, Jac, I still have the stuff I got from you, lol. this kit comes with a shitload of stencils, though~ *_*)
I forget how long sis ended up being here, but it was a good long while. she didn't spend the night this time cause of how far apart we live now, but that worked out for the best anyway, lol. I always felt bad that I'd sleep through her visit on sunday, but dammit, it's the ONE day I get to sleep in, so yeah...this time, I didn't have to worry about it, lol.
I dun like getting up at 7am ;_; at Koda's school, the kids have to be there by 7:45 AM. at 8am, the kid is considered late, so I've been having to get up at 7am so I can take care of Nathan while Kristy & Brian drive Koda to school. (don't ask why it takes TWO of them to drop her off...she's their oldest, and it's her first year at school...questioning them is borderline grounds for being drawn and quartered x_x)
omg though, that reminds me...I'm tired and playing a quick game before I crawl into bed, but omfg, this...djhksdfsd:
a couple weeks ago now, Kristy and Brian came home from work, and I went to my room for something (I forget what). when I came out...Koda is telling her mommy and daddy about her "erections".
"I have a BIG erection"/"I have a LOT of erections!"
Kristy (knowing that I read yaoi/slash): ...Anny...why is she talking about erections?
me (seeing life flashing before my eyes): wtf!omg!IDK!! ;_;
we spent somewhere between 5-15 minutes guessing words that sounded ANYTHING like what she was saying. we tried the "show me what you're talking about" approach, and all she did was point to her toys, so that was a bust.
and then I FINALLY figured out what it was. we watch this show called "Dinosaur Train". On the show, two of the lil dinos have.....COLLECTIONS.
Don has a BIG collection, and Shiny has LOTS of collections.
yeah. we worked with her until she pronounced it right, but I'm still a bit worried.
her teacher's name is one that could VERY easily be mispronounced as "Shy Cock". SO FAR, Koda has pronounced it right, but I just KNOW that she's going to slip up one day, and she's gonna say "Ms. Shy-cock, Ms. Shy-cock! Look at my erection!"
and yeah. I am going to die. on the spot. x_x
jhdkfds...okay, game then bed. *waves* goodnight, and again, thanks for the bday wishes ♥
