These are just amazing.

and so is this.


Life is uneventful the past few days. Still feeling pretty meh but I will get over it. I have decided that the Spawn and I are going to start watching X-mas movies, the weeks before X-mas -- although, I haven't quite figured out just how we are going to accomplish this without depleting the X-mas movie supply even though some are worth watching more than once. I fully intend to somehow persuade Matt to endure this next X-mas as well. lawl. Thinking about X-mas traditions reminds me that I need to pick out some hella cute PJs for the Spawn to wear on X-mas morning, even though I won't get to see them that day.

Found this ABC thing on this blog.. Decided to do it. /shrug.

A. Age: 32 although, I definitely do not feel how I assume 32 is supposed to feel?
B. Bed size: Queen currently.
C. Chore that you hate: Dishes when no one rinses when they put a dish in the sink. Cleaning the bathroom because well, its a bathroom. 
D. Dogs: Nope. I'm more a fish person.
E. Essential start to your day: Hrm. Finding my glasses that I take off in the middle of the night and usually put in bed with me.
F. Favorite color: Black. :] I also dig highly on hot pink and lime green.
G. Gold or Silver: Silver for sure. I really am not a fan of gold, at all.
H. Height: 5 foot 8.
I. Instruments you play: None! I have had serious thoughts about taking up violin.
J. Job title: My main job in life is Mother.
K. Kids: 2 of them.
L. Live: Currently reside in lame ass North Carolina. Soon to be located in Texas with he who makes my <3 go boom!
M. Mother's name: Romona.
N. Nicknames: Val.
O. Overnight hospital stays: 2 times when I had spawn.
P. Pet peeve: Lying, Overly Dramatic-ness, Religion being shoved down my throat.
Q. Quote from a movie: "In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person will still think the sun shines out your ass." 
R. Right or left handed: Right handed. 
S. Siblings: A few.
T. Time you wake up: Depending on if I go to sleep before the spawn need to be up for school, I am up at 7am. If I haven't slept, then I go to sleep after dropping them off at school and wake up around 1pm.
U. Underwear: I discovered cute panties about a year ago and have since only worn ones I think are cute. Stars, lace, print, etc.
V. Vegetable you hate: I can't think of any veggies I particularly hate. I do not like a few enough not to eat them on the regular like Brussels Sprouts, Peas, and Asparagus. Although, I haven't ever had Asparagus made the way it should be, so I might indeed like it.
W. What makes you run late: I am usually running late. My failing to get ready in a hasty manner is generally the reason, or my lack of care if it is some place I don't desire to be. I am working on not being late though.
X. X-Rays you've had: Quite a few. Teeth, Head, Stomach, Foot, Chest, etc.
Y. Yummy food that you make: Quesadillas.
Z. Zoo animal: I usually don't like how miserable animals look at the zoo. Or maybe that is just how they look, all lazy and miserable and shit. I did like tortoises at the Science Center we visited not to long ago.

I was clicking links on my friend's blog [Caslani]-- and came across the following on this blog.

"So, do we all really want princes? Deep down inside? And by prince, again, I mean, someone just perfectly perfect for you. Someone who makes your heart skip a million beats, someone who brings you flowers for no reason at all, someone who treats you like a queen, someone who is responsible, caring and kind. Someone your inner 7 year old would have wanted to find?"

It made me smile knowing that my inner 7 year old would be very, very happy to have found exactly that.


The spawn and I get to go back home for X-mas. SO EFFIN' EXCITED! I get to hang out with Jess, Andrea, and Beth for sure and I hope to get to see a few other people as well. Jhon is going to have the kids for X-mas which is going to be really weird for me, not being around them when they wake up that morning all full of cheer/happiness. But I get to see them all the time, it is only fair he gets time with them too. YAY for going home! I really miss it there, although, I am really looking forward to relocating to Texas and starting life with Matt. I cannot wait to be able to wake up next to him and annoy the shit out of him on a daily basis IN PERSON. I called yesterday and checked into school for the spawn. The one they are going to is apparently one of the top rated schools in the area with really high test scores and lots of parental involvement -- that makes me happy!

The addition of Hot Pink to my hair also makes me happy! Very happy indeed. Now if only I could grow out my hair a little so that something could be done with it. [APPARENTLY, it looks very butch.]

The past few days have been very trying. I have had to stop, calm myself, and proceed quite a few times as of late. I hate being so emotional. Stupid Female Hormones.  I think though, that I have them all under control and I can stop with the spazzing.

My town, which I have dubbed jesustownusa, put up its X-mas decorations. Sigggghh. I now get to see about 40 angels trumpeting all at my face when I drive home at night. What the hell man? And they have a gigantic nativity scene right in the middle of town. I don't think it is even attached to a church, it just sits there, all bright and annoying at the main crossing. Oh well, not much I can do to change their overly religious way of decorating for X-mas.

Picked up a few bottles of nail polish and a brush the other day. They are super awesome colors. China Glaze - Ruby Pumps [Blood Red sparkles!] and Orly - Androgynie [Black with little silver glitters and BIG different color glitters]. I really like how Orly nail polish goes on. Also painted the girl spawns nails all Ruby Gloom inspired. I didn't do amazing, but she liked them.

My birthday ended up being pretty fantastic even though I had to work. Matt got me a mount and a pet for WoW, which was perfect!...So much <3 -- regardless of how nerdy it is. ahah. Paula baked me a cake and then the crew at work got me a cake as well. So.Much.Cake. 
Cake from Paula.

Cake from the people at work.

Mount / Pet from Matt.

It started pouring down rain shortly after I got to work. I was utterly excited to walk to my car tonight! I think I was the only person not complaining and running for their life.
My windshield is all wet.

I am sitting here now just listening to it pour down outside. I might take a nap because it is so perfect. But then...there is SWtOR beta to play for a few more hours -- which, I haven't fully decided if I like or dislike it. I will admit that play Sith was way more fun than Republic.It really is just a Star Wars version of WoW. I do not like the bajillion cut scenes nor the lack of an auto-attack and I am not sure my computer can handle it but I might end up playing it. Meh. Whatevs.

Matt came for a visit for 4 days. That was awesomesauce. I miss him entirely too much. :[ I cannot wait until February when I can be around him as much as I'd like.


The girl spawn and I decided to bake cookies for Turkey Day. She was quite annoyed when her cookies did not turn out all round and perfect. I think she mixed them to much because the chocolate chips were a little beat down. lawl. Oh well, she did a great job anyways.

Toasted Macaroons with Splenda - YUCK. Did not like.

The girl making her chocolate chip cookies.

Her cookies. 

Cake Mix Cookies. So easy and nom.

Turkey Day was pretty un-thrilling this year. I missed my friends a lot. It has been Rhonda and the kids and I for a while now. AMG COLLARD GREENS! I also missed cooking. I have made the turkey for the past 9 years lol..not this year. Sigh. Oh well. After we ate, while the boy spawn played video  games, the girl spawn and I played outside.

Vy - 1.
Vyragosa - 0.

Finally got that damn achievement. Go me.

Matt will be here in a few days! I cannot wait to see him. 

I came home to a note that read -- "DO NOT eat MY jellybeans Mommy!". I was quite amused. AND the jellybeans, which are not mine, which I am not allowed to eat, were hidden on MY desk under her book. Wtfx? Unclutter MY desk with your stuff! And I won't eat YOUR jellybeans!

Driving to work when it turns dark is just awesome. It used to be so hot and bright out.

Random Penis!

When I was at the Charlotte Airport on my way to see Matt, some random dude asked me to watch his cell phone for him and hold his spot because it was next to the outlet where his phone was plugged in charging. I agreed because well I was sitting there on my ass, why not? I wouldn't ever leave my phone with anyone because my phone is like my life force, I might just die without it. But anyways, I sat there and got the idea that I should just randomly text the word PENIS! to people. I didn't do it because I am not nearly that ballsy and it would of been shitty to invade his privacy but god damn it would of been hilarious. I told a friend about it and we have since 'RANDOM PENIS!'ed each other randomly. Hence the title up there ^^.

Farming Vyragosa is completely interrupting my WoW life -- SIGH! I am currently still camped at a spawn point waiting my lame little heart out. I get the most ridiculous IM's as well -- "Why are you out here camping the TLPD if you are on it?" -- not to mention hella /confused /question /helloiamstupid emotes. Because APPARENTLY, the TLPD is the ONLY thing that is desired out here.  /facepalm

Earlier tonight, I was dipping Walnuts in Nutella. It was Nom, but it also felt a bit weird. Dipping one nut in a nut spread, but I went with it. Nutella is one of the best things ever created. /drool.

[Note Vy camped in The Storm Peaks]

Webcammed with the BFF tonight. Got a date again tomarrow. I miss her! And I miss her spawn. Ethan got on there today and was telling me all kinds of stuff. He also now can fully say my name instead of calling me 'Shit' [his word for Amethyst]. So I fartguarded when he was on webcam with me and Jess,  and althugh he had  multiple items in his hand that he was telling me all about, he still managed to Fart Guard! He also told me he loved me. I /swooned. <3

I get the pleasure of closing for the next four nights but it is worth it because I get off Sunday, Monday and Tuesday for Matts visit. :] So excited over that. /lame.

When We're Together, I know I'll Never Fall.

So here I sit, camped in Storm Peaks, still farming Vyragosa -- My WoW life as I know it, is over.

Tonight was my night to cook dinner. Vegetarian Spaghetti [Oh Great, another word I like spelled better MY way. Spagetti!] It was full of mushrooms and green peppers. It was pretty decent. I lacked a spice I always put in mine back home so it wasn't quite right. And because pain is apparently a good thing, it kicked my ass -- more specifically my stomach -- all over the place. Prilosec saved the day.

The mushrooms and green peppers were so pretty pre-cooking.

I passed out about an hour after dinner. Sigh. Naps are teh failz.

/beginrant. Vyragosa is just managing to piss me off. I don't know how people sit here and farm shit like this for hours, even with 2 monitors I am bored to death of waiting for this bitch to spawn. I feel like I need an actual campsite set up with marshmallo--scratch that, I don't really like marshmallows, only how they smell, not how they taste--with soup or something and a tent. Stupid Achievement Whoring. Stupid Rares. /endrant.

Vy hanging out on the Time-Lost Proto-Drake waiting for Vyragosa.

I am finally over dealing with the stomach flu.[EDIT: No, no I am not done dealing with the stomach flu. Uck.]  Amg. Trick or Treating with the spawn while my stomach was trying to full on attack me to death was no fun at all, but I managed. The spawn found it highly amusing and taunted me the entire time. I really cannot complain seeing how I helped make them into the little smartasses that they are. Halloween just wasn't the same this year without my Jessica and her family. We have spent Halloween together for the past 4 or so years, it was just a little weird being without her. The spawns make-up turned out awesome though and they had fun which was all that really mattered in the end.

Fall is by far my favorite time of year -- It is so beautiful outside with the leaves changing and blowing everywhere. AND it is full of my favorite holidays. Halloween, A lot of the people I loves birthdays, Thanksgiving. Absolutely <3 it.

I have 11 more days until I get to see the Matt. I am so excited! I miss him.

I was bored last  night and painted my fingernails even though it will be all peeled off tonight at work with washing my hands so much. Sigh. Oh well. And I should probably stop slamming my finger up against things and getting cuts on them because they look like crap in pictures -- and it hurts.

Everything is bigger in Texas?

Or something.


I spent the weekend in Texas.

My heart is asploding. Just sayin'.


Starbucks at the Airport. [Got it as much as possible since there isn't one close to me lol]

Flautas at El Fenix.

The sauce for the was tasty.



No idea where this is over but it was pretty!

I love flying so much.

God's Acre is(n't) the place for me.

The kids and I spent Saturday and part of Sunday visiting my sister in Winston-Salem. On Saturday, we went to Bethabara Park. Historic Bethabara Park 

Me before the trip. Typical FB picture. Gogo.

North Carolina Sky....always pretty.

The spawn and their cousins writing their names in the dirt.

A cool looking fence surrounding the place.

Oh noes. I am going to kersplode upon entry!

A cool little creek and bridge.

zomgg!!! Zombie!! BRrrrRRaaAAiiiiIINnnz!


Loved this fence.

RIP HAM. You will be missed at Xmas.

More cool wrought iron fence surrounded old graves. graves.

A stillborn I'm assuming?

It was a fun little trip. Got drunk on wine after all the hiking and stuff and dinner and then threw up and went to sleep. Woke up the next day and hung out til time to go home.
