ophelias_heart: (Happy Quinn Blue Dress)
My friends at work really know how to make a girl feel special!
The cake:


The rest of the spread:



And a gift from [livejournal.com profile] novellover :



My cousin and her son also made me a cake yesterday and Harrison (her 4 year old) helped decorate it. He put spots of gel icing he called scrambles. It was really cute!

I also am getting a cake tonight. I'm gonna be honest and say I'm probably going to be climbing the walls with all the sugar I've had today.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] basric, [livejournal.com profile] kytivafan, [livejournal.com profile] nakeisha, [livejournal.com profile] la_loony, [livejournal.com profile] proseac1 for my lovely birthday wishes. You all are awesome!

I don't do well with change. One of my best friends at work is leaving today at noon to move to Austin, TX. I gave her a card to tell her how much she meant to me and how much I would miss her, but I'm feeling super out of control. Most of the time people try to warn me way in advance when they are leaving or looking to leave, but she just had time to give a two week notice. Also, three other friends are on vacation this week, so (fair warning) [livejournal.com profile] carolinecrane and [livejournal.com profile] novellover I might be visiting you a bit more. We are switching offices around and painting (which is the kind of organizational change I can handle). I also put my cat to sleep last week. It's just a lot all at once. On a good note, the medicine I'm on is working really well with the anxiety and depression. Yay!

 Well the call came through and Casey leaves for the Cayman's next week.  We spend every Tuesday night together.  Boo.  I just have to try harder with other friends and make new friends.  I have a hard time making friends cause I tend to freak people out with weird things I say or do.

So I just heard from Casey and she just heard from the Cayman temp agency and with them she just gets a 6-month visa. She said she might stay longer, but that she's gonna see how things go. Yay! Six months is way better than two years. I won't get my hopes way up though. I'm one of those optimists that just assumes everything is going to go the worst wrong it can possibly go and when it doesn't it makes me happy. That's an optimist right?

On a somber note, my neighbor that has had cancer for years just got moved to hospice. The cancer has gone to her brain and the drs. say she has maybe a month. Before I got my full-time gig I used to take her to water therapy (she has really severe arthritis, too). When I took her the first time, they were like oh you have help go get changed, so I helped her get dressed. And take her to get groceries or go get them for her, just whatever she needed. And I learned how to give shots, that was kinda fun though. I had taken her and my friend Jack, who was kinda homebound, to raise. Then, I got my full-time job and met Patrick and couldn't take care of them much anymore. Jack understood, we went by the day we got married in between our wedding and reception and he passed shortly after that. But, by that point she kind of expected me to do that stuff and she was mad that I "wouldn't" help her anymore. She actually told me she "guess(ed) I just forgotten about her then". I have said bad things about the way she treated people when I have no right to judge, but I just don't think I can go see her. I want to go visit, but it reminds me of my mom and I just am not that strong. I don't want her to think I don't care, but I just can't. I'm going to try calling her and sending cards, but I just came home last night and cried.

Sorry, didn't mean to end all depressing.

Nothing really exciting for me, just a regular week except for the snotty, coughing fits. The house feels like home, the condo is still an absolute disaster area. My supervisor's husband has some sort of blood disease, something about his marrow not producing enough blood, it doesn't look that good. She's had a really rough year and I feel bad for her. I am reading "The Poisonwood Bible" and it just makes all the bad things in my life seem trivial. Sometimes I forget how really good I have it. We saw Juno which was awsome and it has a really good soundtrack. I watched Stardust again last night, I had forgotten how much I liked the movie. I got invited to join a book group read the 642 page novel and then was so sick I couldn't go to the meeting. What really was bad was that the book kinda sucked and I wanted to tell them that, but oh well maybe I'll like the next book better. I also have a knitting group now, it's so nice to just get to work on something and not feel like you should be doing something else, plus you get to hang out and talk. Is good! I guess that's it.

Oh Rachelle, if you see this before you leave to come up here could you bring Love Hina 3, 4 and 5 or however many. I really like it.

So my friend Jordan who thought he might have to have gallbladder surgery sometime next year is going to have to have it NOW. It sucks, cause his insurance doesn't start till the begining of the year. He was doing okay and then he started having chest pains yesterday. Anyway if your religious pray for him, if not send good thoughts his way.

P.S. Rachelle I'm sure you'll get something soon, I bet the principal you interviewed with calls you in. Also congrats on grajidating! Remember, there are always things to worry about, but that worrying never helped solve anything. I know that's easy to say, but try to keep your mind off of it.

Well the house inspection went well, there were only about two problems. One was that a post for the deck stairs was balanced on a tree, fixable and the second thing was that the shut off electrical thing is by a company that is known to have cause house fires from not tripping soon enough. He said an electrican should be able to fix it for not to much. Everything else was in relatively good shape, yay!! He called it an uneventful inspection. Plus it didn't take a really long time so we got to have lunch with Mawy.
And now that, as the representative of my mom's estate, I have deeded myself, as heir, the condo we can sell it. Yes they did actually make me deed the condo from me to me. Tonight is Christmas with my best friend her brother and her ex, yay again.
Ok, well I think that's all for me today.

on my own

Well I'm moving out the fist of next month. I think it will do me good to be on my own for a while. I am excited and really nervous. But it'll be great living with Casey. I got a seven month aniv gift yesterday. It was the first in the Sandman series and an artist's anatomy book for my drawing. And a fabulous card. I am very fortunate to have such wonderful people in my life.
