Time goes by

So much has happened since my last post.
I knew I wouldn't keep this thing up to date.

I've moved back in with my mother, that in itself is a historical event. She's a bit difficult but we manage. David is living back with his parents. It's a little hard to go from living with your boyfriend for 3 years to not being able to see him everyday. Not coming home to him or going to bed next to, or waking up next to him every day. It was really hard for the first few weeks, but it's been about a month or so now, and it's still hard. It just seems like we are so distant now. It's more like we are best friends than we are in a committed relationship. It's hard to explain, but definitely things are more difficult now than they ever were. Not seeing each other every day is taking a toll. I'm trying to stay positive and just focus on the future and temporariness of the situation.

I've applied for a job with Miami Dade Police Dept. at a criminalist, working in the crime lab. I REALLY hope that I get the job. It will be good pay, good benefits and much more interesting.

I moved my Sushi (my black cat) to my mom's but she's taken a liking to the neigbhorhood I guess and hangs out at someone else's house. She doesn't really come around anymore. I see her every now and then. Ohwell, as long as she's happy and has food to eat.

SO anyways, I'm on my break at work right now and I need to get going. My next post I'm sure will be a long time from now.

the aftermath of a vacation

Well the Vegas trip was great. Vegas is pretty neat, you definitely don't need more than like 2-3 days there. Gambling is not my thing so I got bored after a day. But there is other stuff to do like see all the hotels, eat at the buffets, and shop. Since we didn't have a car in Vegas, we were limited to bus rides, expensive taxis and however far our aching feet could take us. All the shows are pretty expensive too. So we made do with what we could actually keep ourselves entertained with, which was eating. HAHA We ate so much and it was so good.

Once we got the car rental after 3 days, we were OFF. we drove to downtown to Fremont Street to take some pictures and get the deep fried twinkie, which was everything I had hoped it would be. Then we drove out West to LA. We ate at In-N-Out Burger, which has a secret menu apparently. they were really good, not greasy, simple 3 meal menus, and fresh cut fries. It was wonderful.

California was beautiful. LA was awesome. There's so much to say and I don't feel like typing it all but all in all we had a great time, I'm happy that we both feel the same way about LA. At first I was afraid David would hate it, but then once I got to Vegas I started thinking about it, and I figured David was going to really like LA. and he did! So that was great.

Cory was a great tour guide and Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles was everything I had hoped it would be also. It was so delicious. It was a great trip and I'm sad to be back home. Who knows, one day maybe I'll just get rid of all my shit and head westward.

Las Vegas

I was excited about this trip a week ago, and a month before that I was still in the planning process. So I've been thinking about this trip for quite some time now.

It's finally happening in TWO days!

We will be on Delta en route to Las Vegas on Thurs night.

I will try to bring back as many souvenirs as possible, but don't count on it.

woop woop

Strange Pets

Ok so I've figured out that I have really strange pets.

It's strange enough as it is to say petS plural. It drives David nuts but if we weren't together I'd have a zoo and be broke. So I'm glad he puts his foot down for me.

I had 2 Bearded dragons, but I recently had to give up Vint, the male. It's just too much for me right now. I already had the two Australian Water Dragons and then I adopted two beardies, but when I started working two jobs, it just got too hectic.

I'm sure he's much happier where he is now.

So anyways, the female is doing great, she's getting super chunky. Her arms and legs have really filled in, so I'm happy about that. I don't have any recent pictures because I'm hardly ever home, and when I am home it's late so it's too dark to take pictures of her. And no I'm not going to use flash on her while she sleeps.

But as for the Water Dragons, they are insane. Aside from the fact that I can't touch them, they're so skittish and psycho. But they freaking sleep upside down. They sleep on the hammock and usually they fall asleep upright against the glass, and little by little you'll see them slide. Eventually they are in some weird contorted position, or they'll just fall off the hammock. But one night we came home to see this.


Now the fish that we have is a little OCD and has Social Anxiety.

He is the sole survivor of 8 African Cichlids. I don't know, but I think he is like bionic because he is enormous and has outlived all the others.

He likes to move all the rocks, by mouth of course, a few at a time, or however many he can fit into his mouth. He makes a wall at the front of the tank. Whenever you walk by he swims quickly behind the coffin. I added some more greenery and a covered bridge to give him more hiding spaces/privacy but he still hides and he still builds the mound.

I cleaned the tank last night and moved all the rocks back to a nice flat, uniform base, but sure enough within a few hours he starts moving them. And I keep hearing "tink, tink, tink" coming from the sound of the rocks hitting the glass or other rocks. He's a FREAK!

This is what the tank looks like today, but mind you, usually the wall is much higher.

and he's there hiding behind the bridge.

A little better perspective of his wall.


Then there's the cat. David wants to kick the bitch and sometimes he does when she tries to sneak in the house. I named her Sushi Maki but I still call her kitty, pussie, kiki, mushi. Whatever. She listens to anything as long as you feed her.

But I attempted to get catnip, mind you I've gone through 3 live plants already. She attacks them and gets super high. I can't keep them away from her. I try to hide them and she finds them. The last one was beautiful. I got it from Whole Foods, it was full and bushy. I put it on the cooler outside and she got to it, knocked it over and ate a bunch of leaves. Then I moved it on top of the BBQ, she got it there too. So I put it on the table with all the other plants.

She just knocked it off the table and proceeded to rub herself in the plant, probably all day or god knows how long, because when I got home it was like a squashed mess. So she was high as fuck all day.

The remains of the catnip plant.

The side effects...

So David concluded, "That's why she's always stretching and showing me her nasty pink asshole when I get home, She's high as fuck." David established that he hates cats because they show you their gross pink assholes. HAHAHAHA!!! I love him!

One thing I am thrilled about is that I got Mustard Greens seeds to germinate!!

OK, final note.

I love and miss my boyfriend dearly. This month (April) marks our knowing each other for 10 years. But August is the big anniversary.

This weekend was awesome. we were in Ocala for Billetproof, got a free upgrade at the hotel because they lost our reservation, bought the second '41 Plymouth, and had a great time with friends. My little mini vacation ruled. come back to work to find out that I have the next 3 nights off!! I'm so happy. I get to watch LOST Thurs night. So yea, David is leaving for Ohio to take his grandmother back home Sunday. He'll be back April 6th, and then 4 days later we leave for VEGAS!!! I'm super excited. It's been so time consuming to book the whole trip and we still haven't finished every detail, but I'm really looking forward to traveling on a plane for the first time in 10 years with David. He'll prob sleep the entire time.

Vegas is going to be a blast and then we're driving out to LA to hang out with Corey. I'm so excited!!

bla bla bla

I work 60 hours a week, I'm tired and exhausted. I can't wait until March 21 when I will be in Ocala for the weekend at billetproof. And then 3 weeks later I'm off to VEGAS Baby!

I desperately need a vacation.

I don't know why I keep falling in to the same circle over and over again. Soon enough I might actually get the strength to put everything behind me and just move on.

They say the grass is always greener on the other side. I wonder if it's finally time for me to go to the other side. My patience and "unconditional love" is starting to wear thin.

Cinnamon Scones and Creme Brulee coffee

I was supposed to have yesterday OFF, but instead I got called in to work.


Sorry about the caps, I wasn't yelling (internet lingo is so ridiculous). I use a DOS program that requires caps at work so I always forget to take it off, and I'm not typing that over.

The new Nordstrom is really nice. Except the only affordable things there are cosmetics and juniors dept. So anyways, I need to find a home for my male beardie. If anyone wants a bearded dragon please let me know. I want him to g
o to a good home. I want to give the dragon away, but if the person who wants it also needs a tank, lighting etc. I'm going to have to charge something because I can't afford to just give EVERYTHING away.

Yesterday I was reminded why I hate Starbucks. Somehow I have bad luck with them. Starbucks must not like me back, which is fine.

I ate a really good, juicy nectarine yesterday, and I forgot them in the fridge today. I really wanted to eat one, but I guess I will later.

My blogs are incredibly boring.

I am supposed to go to Barry Manilow Sunday night, but I changed my mind.

Kimbo Slice can kick your ass.

Almost forgot. My black cat is a GIRL not a boy, hahaha. and I named her Sushi Maki Miller. LOL

Rainy Days

I'm VERY happy that it started raining today. My plants were in desperate need of a good watering. My car also needed to be cleaned.

David went to Orlando for a show so I'll be home alone. But I'll be cleaning this weekend. Working sucks, I want to stay home everyday and organize and bake.

Rambo ruled, I saw it Sunday, I loved it.

I hate crack heads from Liberty City, if that offends you, come spend a day at my job and you'll feel the same.

OK, well time to leave for job #2.

I'm exhausted.

My dad was finally released from the hospital. It's a really confusing story but in the end he's ok, but the doctors want him to take steroids for the rest of his life and he's not going to.

Work has been draining. I finally got goals at my store and I've been selling over my goal and have a really high percentage, so that's good. I was rally worried but I found that it's not as hard as I thought it would be to sell expensive stuff to people. Sometimes it is hard though, especially people that are traveling and can't take certain things in their carry on bags.

I should really get on the ball with teaching but I'm so intimidated by it. I'm going to really start pushing in the next couple weeks though. I need some real money.

Relationship life has been pretty lacking for me, but probably because I'm never home.

My dragons probably hate me because I'm never home to entertain them either.

I have this black cat that's pretty much been my pet for a couple weeks now, and it's actually really nice. I enjoy seeing him everyday I leave in the morning or come home at night. He's so loyal and it makes me smile when he greets me. I don't even know if it's a boy or a girl! haha! I should prob try to find out. And it doesn't have a name yet, except kitty. which I really would like to change. But I can't think of anything good.

Ohwell, I'll try to make it through this obstacle.

my father

I spent the entire day with my dad at Jackson yesterday. He was in the ER waiting room since Monday afternoon and they finally took him in Tues 4am. They took blood, and gave him breakfast, and then by 10 am they gave him an ultrasound. There were no results from that. I sat with him in a general room with 17 other patients, waiting for rooms to become available.

Some guy with prostate cancer was to the right, every time he had to pee he would moan and spasm. When the doctor's finally gave him a catheter, he was spasming uncontrollably every time he felt like he was peeing. It was really annoying. Not to mention he smelled terrible.

The doctors finally came to ask my dad more questions in the afternoon. I come to find out that my dad's father died of liver CANCER when he was like 48. I thought he died of EYE cancer. So now I'm worrying even more. The doctor finally came back again later on to tell me that he was allowed to eat (they skipped him for lunch and dinner because there were no orders from the doctors). He could eat until midnight, then after that nothing bc they are going to do a CT scan this morning. I left there at 9pm and he was still in the general room.

So I called him this morning and I was happy to hear him pick up the phone, because that meant he had a room. There was no cell service where he was yesterday. So sure enough he is in a room and they haven't done the CT scan yet. The first thing he told me when he picked up the phone was, very quietly "I'm in a room with an HIV positive person." I think he's creeped out.

So I'm going to try to stay positive, but it's sort of hard. He is in good spirits and doesn't seem to show signs that he's sick, except that he's orange and his eyes are yellow. So hopefully everything will turn out ok.

free day...sorta

Needed to take the day off from work to get a bunch of stuff done.
I started my day with Chinese flowering tea from Jill.

Well I just a phone call from my sister telling me that my dad is really sick. something that has to do with his liver, so now I'm totally freaking out and I was told to find my dad. So I called and he answered and he's home, sounding like shit. He won't go to the hospital for another week. Fuck I can't type I need to go.

wacka wacka wacka

OK, I think I might be going crazy.

It's been really hectic with having 2 jobs and taking a cake decorating class. I have to bake a cake every week and make a crap load of icing. But it's ok, I guess this stress test will make me a stronger person, if I don't explode before. or have a mental breakdown.

I'm having a hard time keeping 4 dragons, so I'm considering getting rid of one. I really don't want to but I don't want to neglect him in any way. And it's a lot of work to have 4!

Tomorrow night I am making a creepy ass clown cake in my cake decorating class. I'm totally freaked out by it. but I'm giving it to David. I'm sure he'll love it. ha!

David doesn't know that I have this blog yet but I'm sure when he does finally find it he'll call me a loser. Which is fine, because that would mean that my plan worked and that he creeped. In fact if anyone is actually reading this it means you creeped. Because the only person I've told about it is Dydy.

Well there isn't much else to write here. I'll post pictures of my cake tomorrow.

incredibly frustrated

I worked at Origins over the Christmas break and the manager asked if I would be interested in coming on as a permanent part-timer, so like an idiot I said yes. so far it hasn't been at all difficult but in another week I'll get my goals and then it will start getting tough. The only frustration I have now is the hours. I work 8-4:30 at the shop and then 5-close at Origins. So I'm DEAD when I get home. I've had no time to do anything this week. I thought I was going to get all this stuff done while David was out of town, but I was able to do nothing.

On top of that I come to find out that I HAVE NOT been hired by the county as a temporary instructor. Apparently I have to tell them to hire me?!? I don't quite understand the system but maybe sometime this year I'll be a sub.

It really sucks when people you care about treat you like shit but I guess everyone has a bad day?? Whatever, I don't get it.

Ok well I get to leave work early today so that I can arrive earlier at Origins to get the fuck out of there by 6pm, I hope!

Tonight I play wii.

Giving in to blogs

Ok well I decided to try this shit out. I'll probably quit after a week, but until then I'll use it to keep my creeping friends and acquaintances entertained. As well as update those interested on the progress of my mothering two Bearded Dragons and two Australian Water Dragons. As well as other random animals that come and go in my life.

It will probably take me some time to figure this coding stuff or whatever is used for this site, seeing as I'm not as Internet savvy as most.

Ok well I guess I'll try to keep updates going..

For now here is a picture of the cake I made in my Wilton Cake Decorating class I'm currently taking.

Alright well till next time I guess.
