January sleep

I couldn't think of a better title for this post but I'm not quite sure what I'm even going to write about today.  Well maybe I should start off with a couple of updates.

-This Christmas was a sweet one.  I feel really really awful about the Tiffany bracelet that my husband bought me.  Why do I feel awful about it, you wonder?  Because I had it for all of 5 days before losing it while shopping for jeans.  I wasn't upset so much because of the cost, when I told him about it, he could see that I was truly sad and offered to buy me a new one at the end of this month.  I felt so awful because I had lost something that he gave to me with all his heart and I knew how much it meant to him to be able to give me something like that.  He was really sweet about it and it wasn't the only gift he gave me.  Still though, I wish I could have found it.  Trust me, I looked everywhere and called every place I went the last day I had it on.  It must have fallen off because it was one of those T shape-loop clasps.  And like I said, it's not because of the cost or the fact that it was a peice of jewelry, it's because it was a gift and I loved it. sigh....

-On an up note, my ankle is beginning to feel better.  I twisted it in October and it hurt for weeks.  It's finally healing although the cooler weather hasn't helped but I'm glad to be able to take longer walks without feeling like my ankle is going to fall off.  Ok I'll admit that the real reason I'm happy is because I can wear heels again.

-I haven't been shark tooth hunting in a LONG time but I did find a few today with Peanut.  The weather is going to be nicer this week so I'm going to go so I'll have some beach pictures up soon.

-I visited my OBGYN last week to discuss my future baby plans....while in the waiting room I thought to myself, "Good Lord I need to find someone else to deliver my future hypothetical child if I need to listen to this hellforsaken heehaw country music everytime I come here.  I'm here for a yearly pap not a hoedown."

-I tried to look for a school to enroll in so that I could acquire an Aestheticians licence.  I went here and I swear I felt like I was at a car dealership or some kind of cult.  I went in to tour the facilities and ask questions about tuition and I left feeling like I had just made a deal with the devil.  These places take advantage of people .  They expected me to pay $24,000.00 for the same certification that would cost around $6000-$8000.00 if I just went to a beauty school.  I also found out that if I went to a local community college, I could get a lower interest loan and tuition was half the price. I had to go in person the next day to let them know I wasn't interested in enrolling because I was afraid they would out in a loan application before I had the chance to tell them no.  I'll write a post about it in the future but it would take too long to tell the hilarity that went on in my experience with those people.  I still would like to get some training in that field but as long as I live in such a small town, there really aren't any schools for me.  I'm looking to see if I can find some kind of apprenticeship situation.  

-Remember her?  She reared her ugly head recently and I'll have to post about that too.  She's not ugly, actually she's a good looking person.  On the outside.  I don't like that expression but it was the best one I could think of.  That post will come soon.....

-I still have insomnia.  It started around the time I twisted my ankle, got worse after sweet Mai passed away and then just sort of continued into the Holidays.  It's been better and I thought about seeing an Occupational Therapist for it since I feel like my doctor would only be able to just give me pills.  But I'd really like to get over it on my own.  I went through something similar during my 8th grade summer and again during senior year of high school and both times I got over it after visiting my Grandparents.  Unfortunately(for a million reasons other than sleep of course) my Grandparents are no longer on this Earth so I can't hop on a plane and visit the most beautiful farm in West Virginia so I'll have to just suffer a little longer.  I'm getting a little better now that the Holidays are over and the days are beginning to get longer though.

I'm glad to be back on this blog.  I'm still doing my beauty channel and blog thing but I've missed my little blog  here too. I just felt like staying away a while since I only had sad things on my mind in December.  But things are better now and I appreciate the comforting comments.  I can't wait to catch up!

You should come up here and do aesthetics at my school. Then we can hang out and then go into business together. :D

I have never been able to understand those t-shaped clasp things. I don't trust them. I know how you feel - it is awful to lose something precious & beloved.

As far as "her" - I had a situation where I let someone in dire circumstances rent a room from me. I soon learned why she was in the circumstances - she had managed to alienate everyone she knew with her awful behavior. I ended up putting her stuff on the lawn and locking her out.
