Holla! I’m still under construction, but up!

Isabella has completed my beautiful new custom blog. It’s ready for viewing thanks to Osbasso, who helped me immensely with the importing of posts. You’ll notice there are a few glitches still, but it’ll be ready for HNT I’m pretty sure.

Please comment when you get to the new spot as poor Os *who drank beer first thing today for St. Paddy’s day* will have to just move the comments over. Thank you in advance. I can’t wait to see you over there. It’s really pretty.ūüôā

For the nights I can’t remember

There’s no deeper meaning to this post, I just really love the song. Heard it while my son was watching videos and it reminded me again how much I love it. Couldn’t find an embed code with the video, but the lyrics are nice. Enjoy! Gotta love those Canadian boys.

By the way, it’s just a few days until the unveiling of my new blog. I am so pleased with it. ūüôā

My new diggs

My new blog is going to kick ass!¬† I don’t want to jump the gun and give any specific day but Isabella is working on it and with the help of some wonderful bloggers and friends, some preparations are complete on my end as well.¬† I have to switch from wordpress over to blogger so I will have a new link and will post it soon.¬† I am really looking forward to showing it to all of you.¬† Stay tuned for that, won’t you?

Who’s suing who?

This last week and a bit has been totally insane.¬† As I mentioned last week I have cleared substantial debt and am feeling pretty good about it.¬† The pig and I still have some linked debt.¬† It was prearranged that I would take the car loan over in my name as soon as he takes over another small debt *but not before I paid my portion of course–you can’t expect responsibility from a pig*.¬† Now I decided to take a stance of my own.¬† I paid my portion, but left $500 of it for him to pay because he still owes me money and I don’t forget that shit.¬† I sent him a brief email saying:

I wanted to let you know that I have paid my portion of the furniture bill and when you take it over, i will wait just a couple of weeks until payments are processed then take the car loan over.
 
You will notice that there is a balance of $1479.11 plus an additional $500 that you owed me from the fall.  I need this money elsewhere in order to take the car loan over.  
 
thanks

I didn’t think I was being a bitch AND I was asking for less than what he owes.¬† By the way, I did actually have it to pay but I had to try.¬† Five minutes after I arrived at work my cell phone goes off *it’s cute and pink and plays Circus when it rings* I didn’t catch it the first time but recognised the digits and ran to find dirtygirl so she could be my moral support.¬† Phone starts ringing again.¬† I answer and he tells me that isn’t feasible for him.¬† Hmmm…interesting since you live at home in your childhood bedroom mama’s boy!¬† Anyhow, I won’t get into the whole conversation cause it pisses me off more but I will tell you that dirtygirl caught most of the conversation and was jumping and clapping for me *I guess I was standing up for myself* but then it got more heated so I went outside into the cold winter air with just my sweater and dress pants so I could yell without¬†of my co-workers hearing it all.¬† She was upset to have missed the end but it’s ok.¬† He says¬†flat out HELL NO he’s not gonna pay it.¬† He’s being childish and I’m putting in a small claim and getting what I’m owed.¬† If he wants to mess with me, he better be ready.

And in other news, I got a very unpleasant surprise yesterday afternoon at work when dirtygirl came to tell me there was someone asking for me¬†and he called me by my real name–not my nickname like everyone else.¬† Turns out it was the landlord from the townhouse I left after the split.¬† They are suing me for rent and damages *I did break the lease but my situation was pretty dire*.¬† I know I left it in good condition.¬† You should see this shit.¬† Man, if it didn’t make me so fucking tense I’d write it all down but I’m still very upset right now.¬† My hearing is in late April .¬†¬†Anyhow, so here I am nearly debt free and POOOOF here comes the drama.¬† Drama fucking sucks.¬† I am feeling happy inside still.¬† I will be fine, just have lots of details to work out and paperwork to locate.¬†

¬†Dirtygirl’s meat market

Dirtygirl and I¬†worked shifts at a construction trade show this weekend past.¬† It’s dirtygirl’s favorite work event¬†because she loves the eye candy milling about.¬†¬† She just kills me with her “future husband” talk.¬† “Ohhh did you see the guy over at the ___booth”?¬† She’ll talk about it loud and clear from where ever she’s standing.¬† Makes me giggle and grin and it’s especially fun now that I’m single too!¬† :)¬†¬†It’s funny because with¬†all¬†the different booths there is one that doesn’t fit.¬†¬†A candy stand.¬†¬†Wonderful¬†melt-in-you-mouth fudge and caramel nuts.¬† That’s the candy I was looking for.¬† Every¬†year when I work the show¬†I spend $12 on fudge and other stuffs.¬†¬†mmmm yummy.¬† ¬†After my shift on Saturday afternoon I went to pick up my art.¬† Now, I would really love to show it to you but it’s rolled up until I can frame it.¬†¬†I don’t want¬†your first impression of it to be a snap shot that isn’t complete.¬† I have called my father out of province and asked him to make me a frame.¬† When I get it, I will do my very best Vanna White impersonation for you all.¬† I didn’t¬†out dancing, however, I did go to a house party with a fun crowd.¬† Sometimes it’s a push to get me out but once there I do enjoy being a social butterfly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sometimes I hide away
I stay wound in my little cocoon waiting for strength,
waiting for my vulnerability to dissipate before resurfacing
I am not sad
I feel so free, so happy inside but…

Sometimes the real world can be hard
Sometimes we get hurt
Here I don’t feel pained
This is my freedom, my solace
I have found something that’s just for me

*click please*

don’t forget about visiting Os!

Longing

What does Autumn want?¬† To be loved, to be accepted for herself.¬† That’s what.

Someday my prince will come…but in the meantime, I’m going to enjoy being footloose and fancy free.

This song just makes me feel all warm.  Take a moment, close your eyes.  Come away with me.

 

HNT#13–Getting my groove on

I am having a great weeks so far, wonderful in fact.¬† I have been feeling so¬†happy and strong.¬† If you scroll down to the last 2 posts you’ll see what’s been happening!¬†¬† Actually, I was hoping more of you would have danced for me to Duffy.¬†¬† I have exciting news!¬† I have successfully caught up on every financial obligation I have (pretty good for a single mom, hey?) and I actually have a bit left over for general things.¬† I am purchasing my first piece of art.¬† I saw it at an exhibit back in January and¬†it was meant to be mine.¬† I am working out the arrangements this week, so I will post a picture when I get it.¬†

Real life has gotten in the way of my blogging schedule.¬† I have been posting but have missed so many of your posts.¬† I am so sorry and I promise I will make it up to you all somehow.¬† I have missed you and hope to have a little more time soon.¬† Red is visiting from out of town tonight so I am going to keep it brief.¬† I think I might have to go dancing this weekend because I need to release, let my body feel the music and just have fun.¬† It’s time to get out and socialize with the outside world.¬† Pretty brave, wha?

Life is good.  Live it to the fullest.  Have fun.

Do you remember Isabella’s February’s win a blog makeover contest?¬† Well guess what?¬† I WON IT!!!¬† Check me out.

Sorry for all the exclamation points today, I’m just feeling the love and I am so thrilled I can’t stop smiling.¬† Now, this means I have to switch my blog from wordpress over to blogger, so there will be some changes and a new link, which I will give you once it’s all done.¬† I’m feeling pretty lucky since I also won sexywhisper’s Orgasmic Christmas Contest *my prize was a fabulous mini g-spot vibe*.¬† So, I have some decisions to make over here.¬† Hmmm, custom hey?¬† This could be very very interesting indeed.¬† Who’s a lucky girl?¬† Yep, it’s me.¬†ūüôā

If you haven’t already, scroll down to the last post.¬† You’ll see that I’m having a happy start to my week.¬† Woot woot!¬† Can’t wait to show you all my new diggs.¬† Sweet!

Random dancing–just let it flow

I heard the most fabulous song on the radio yesterday.¬† I have no idea what it’s called or who sings it though.¬† All I can really recall is that she was saying something like “give me what i really want” while speaking, of course, of relationships.¬† I love the words of it and really want to post it *as soon as i figure out what it’s called*.¬† I am a radio station switcher.¬† See, I just like what I like.¬† Doesn’t matter what style of music it is, if I don’t like the song that’s playing, I will switch until I find a better one.¬†ūüôā

Using my great powers of telepathy, I was switching stations like a mo-fo in hopes that someone would hear my thoughts and just play the freakin song already!¬† You know?¬† My powers weren’t working today *sigh* but I did happen upon another song that I love.¬†¬† Actually, I am adding it to this post and have been looking for a video with an embed code.¬† During this process, I have listened to the song 3 times.¬† Each time I hear it, I pause to dance.¬† Either here in my chair, or just around the living room.¬† A challenge for you all then–I don’t care who you are, everyone should dance sometime.¬† Doesn’t matter if you are the worst dancer in the world *worse than Elaine on Seinfeld even* just get up and get your groove on!¬† Look around.¬† Is there anyone else with you?¬† There.¬† You have a partner.¬† Play this song now and move your body, let the beat carry your worries away.¬† I challenge you–NO–I double-dog dare you!¬† Do it!¬†

 

aren’t you dancing¬†yet?¬† my word–you’ll feel good¬†
