Has it been a year since I’ve actually written in this thing? I’ve been really busy with that job (which I had to resign). I also got married at Disney on July 11. =)
That’s my bouquet. It’s still in the process of being preserved. I didn’t want to include a photo of my husband and I together on this public of a forum because we both have psychotic exes who may make an appearance and make things ugly. I don’t understand why people can’t let go and not cause problems.
I didn’t really do much creative stuff. =( I just made two flower hair pins and an Evil Eye flower clip.
Having Lupus and working really odd hours at the emergency room really did a number on my health. It manifests as attacks on my lungs and joints. It got to the point where it was getting difficult to walk and breathe. Asthma+Lupus attack on lungs=lots of coughing and gasping. Nurses would flock to me and ask me if I want to be seen by one of the doctors. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the doctors where I work. They’re awesome people, but I really didn’t want the hassle of sitting in a room and waiting to be seen. They wouldn’t just let me wait at my desk until a doctor could see me. I had to go to an actual room.
I’ve been in a really bummed out mood since Cheeto Mussolini had been elected. =( I was shocked when Trump won. It’s been pretty scary since. I’ve had friends who have been attacked for being LGBT, POC, disabled, female, etc. I’ve been called “Deaf Bitch.” I also had people ask my coworkers “Why did you hire a handicapped girl for the ER?” One of my friends wound up in the ICU from being beaten. I don’t really like to rattle on about political stuff on my blog or other social media (what can I say that hasn’t already been said?), but I am definitely scared about what’s to come.
I do plan on taking classes in creative stuff. I’ve always wanted to learn how to knit and crochet. I plan on taking sewing classes so I can improve on my skills. My mother is a master seamstress. She can look at anything, create a pattern for it and MAKE IT! I’m nowhere near as talented as my mother with that. She’s truly amazing.
I had to drop my sign language class because of the demands of the ER registrar job. =( I was really bummed out about it. I loved my classmates and adored my professor. I am going to pick that back up in the fall.
I’ve moved all my art and sewing stuff from the spare room to the basement. It makes sense to do that. We need an actual guest room. There is also more room for things in the basement. It’s also right by the washing machine, so I can prewash all my fabrics and be right there. The ironing board stuff is also right there permanently, so I don’t have to lug everything upstairs to iron seams. It gets a little cold, but it makes the creative stuff more convenient. Right now it’s a bloody mess down there and I am still trying to figure out where to put everything. Once I have it nice and set up, I shall take piccies.
