What dirty dishes?

This is how you get out of trouble for not doing the dishes. *grins* You just stand real pretty in something distracting and offer some treats. Now, what significant other could possibly be upset about a few dishes in the sink when they can have hot cocoa, churros, and this? None with a pulse, I can tell you that! *giggles*

Sady Stuff!

The moment I saw this sweater, I had to message Annie, “I’m just going to pretend this sweater is named after me!” Annie quickly assured me that it was indeed named after me. I’m honored to have such a beautiful piece named after me. I love how the lines kinda shift around the boobs, like its stretching. It is perfect….the shading, the wrinkles….how the sleeves come down over the wrists as if I’ve been pulling at them and no pokes on the shoulders from being on a hanger in my closet instead of folded on a shelf. *laughs* Seriously, this is one of the most realistic sweaters I’ve seen in SL, like this sweater has been worn….I pushed up the sleeves to do dishes, then I tugged them down over my hands when I took the dog out. For me, this sweater tells a story,
To top off the sweater, Katya named a pose set after me! It’s a perfect set of poses for blogging, too. So, I’ll be using them all eventually. For now, I’m just using one of them to pose pretty in front of this scene composed mostly from two of THOR’s lastest gacha sets.
I’m not going to pretend that I’m not excited over having such awesome creations named after me. It’s an honor anytime a designer names something after you and I am genuinely chuffed. (Can’t tell I have British friends, can you?)

Drunk on Christmas…just like Grace!

This song made think of my friend, Grace….she jokes about drinking in order to put up with her family. Now let’s hope she doesn’t kill me for this…LOL

Christmas is a time, a special time of year
With peace and joy and happiness and, wonderment and cheer
Opening your presents underneath the tree
And spending countless hours with your family

That’s why I’m drinking drinking drinking
I’m gonna drink all day
I’m coming home for Christmas and my family’s insane
Just got to make it through the day
And there’s no other way
I’m gonna get drunk, drunk, drunk on Christmas

Drunk on Christmas...just like Grace!

Life is Messy

Life is messy. There’s no doubt about that. Anyone with pets or children will attest to stepping in something questionable in the middle of the night. Nothing will throw off your day faster than cleaning up a mess like that first thing in the morning. Clearly, life isn’t perfect, but rather than compare our lives to those we see on our lovely screens…I think its better to embrace it.
I know my life isn’t what I had hoped it would be and I changed my ideas about my life several times over the course of my life. Not once did I envision my life to be what it is now. I jokingly said I’d be a fat old woman who hates kids and has a bunch of cats. I don’t even have that! I mean, I don’t LOVE kids, but I surely don’t hate them. Ok, I am fat, so I got that goal down easy enough. Wait, was that a goal….oh god, I manifested that shit! Fuck me. Well, ok, so what. I’m fat, I got a grocery list of health problems and no insurance. I’m still here. I have rather decent roof over my head. *looks down at my fat body* Uhm, clearly, I have plenty to eat. *laughs* I have two running cars. I have one tiny feline terrorist and the most perfect smartest dog in all da world. And I still have my wonderful, albeit crazy, Mom. I am freaking blessed! Sure, I struggle financially, but it sure could be worse. My condo and my cars are paid in full. That’s a true blessing.
As Thanksgiving (yes, its a U.S. holiday) comes sliding around the corner, I have a lot to be thankful for and I’m thankful that I do. Whether you celebrate this holiday or not, I think its a nice reminder to take some honest inventory of the blessings in our lives. It’s easy to forget those blessings as we go about our mundane daily routines. If you’re blessed enough to be reading this, it means you’ve been blessed with a little bit of time and the luxury of internet. While, I’m not so sure you need to be grateful for reading my ramblings, I’m pretty sure you’ve got your own plethora of blessings to behold. Oh…and don’t think I forgot you. I am very very grateful that you have taken that little bit of time from your life to read my words. More grateful than I can properly express, but Thank You.♥

Snowdrops

My sister, Kess Crystal, opened her winter sim today. It might seem a tad early to some, but in plenty of places around the world…the snow has been on the ground for a while. This sim is absolutely gorgeous and I highly encourage you to check it out. There’s actually activities on the sim, as well. I’m not going to tell you too much about it, because honestly I want you to go check it out for yourself. I know I’ll be coming back to ice skate on this gorgeous ice skating area behind me!

How ’bout these notions

I hear the birds
When they’re singing
I hear the sirens
When they’re ringing
But I can’t take my mind off of you
A thousand words, pouring out
The distance of over there
Is moving on and out
You said it’d be alright
How ’bout these notions
Hmm, they’re deep as ocean
Calling out my name
Screaming out in vain
Singing hallelujah
Tell your mother, she don’t understand
Tell your mother, she’s not listening
Why don’t you tear my heart
The chain is made of string
I roll the dice
You seal the deal
That don’t matter
Cause pain will heal
I will follow you
Into the dark

The Attention it Deserves

I absolutely love decor, but I find myself struggling with decor blogging more and more. I’m definitely to a point in my blogging career that I no longer apply for teams. I might “reapply” for a team I don’t want to leave, but I’m not looking for more. I’m starting to get back to where I started with all this and that was more about blogging exactly what I wanted, when I wanted. Now I have deadlines that rarely match my inspiration. My passion has always been fashion, but I wanted to do it all. I’m not cutting out decor entirely, but I definitely think I will continue to cut back in the upcoming months. It takes much more time than I have and the more jobs I take on in SL, the less time I have for blogging, especially decor scenes that often take me at least a week to finish. In the end, I often feel that I’m not giving decor the attention it deserves. The next time you’re decorating or shopping, zoom in close and appreciate the tiny details that creators put into their work.

Take One Day Away

“Every person needs to take one day away.  A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future.  Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence.  Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for.  Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”
― Maya Angelou, Wouldn’t Take Nothing for My Journey Now

Pretty Good Week

This week has been a complete whirlwind. So much has happened in such a small span of time and here we are. It’s Friday already. There’s an abundance of things happening all across the grid this weekend, so I’m sure its going to fly by and Monday will be rearing its head before I’ve had time to blink. It’s been a pretty good week overall. I did have a bout of PTSD and that sucked, but I got through it using the tools I’ve learned in therapy. So, that’s another win. I’m really proud of myself for getting through that as well as I did. All that being said, I’m in a fantastic mood and I’m refusing to let anyone ruin that. I’m going to have a fun filled weekend and get lots of sleep! *nods*
