I had a ball yesterday. Got paid early, 31st instead of the 3rd of the month, nice surprise. So first I paid my sister-in-law back, then I went shopping for my son Mike's birthday which is coming up on the 14th of Jan. I got a gift bag that said "Happy BDay" then got a cool card. I got him stuff he likes and needs but never buys himself cause he runs out of money. Like batteries, stamps, A big can of Cashews and same of Pitstachios. Black Pepper Beef Jerky, hot and spicy jumbo sunflower seeds, Gorilla Super glue (he always borrows mine) Duke's Hot & Spicy smoked sausages. A black & burgundy travel Thermos@ Coffee Mug, Hope he likes it. The card says something like "I know you aren't a child anymore but you'll always be my little boy." Isn't that the truth.
I made a huge mistake and dyed my natural blonde hair this awful dark brown with purplish red highlights and have hated it ever since sooooo today I get to bleach it back to blonde, very relieved and happy about that. Went to Sally's and got all the crap I will need for that. Will report on it, no I will take a pic and post it. I do have to go to Walgreen and trade in the toner I got for it, too light, I want a more natural looking beige blonde. One of my gifts was a haircut! So maybe after I color I will go get it shaped and trimmed.
I have gotten back into my art again and its very therapeutic (relaxing). I had made a new playlist on youtube so I played that while drawing. I drew a cute baby Alpaca, also this garly looking old tree with a red bleeding heart hanging from it. It is all black and white except for the heart. Also a set of pics, one Ballet slippers and the other girl's Ice skates. Need to color those. Pretty excited about those.
My son and fiancée went to the NA dance last night, didn't even hear them come in so they must have had fun. Took pictures of them before they left. Must be so nice to be in love, ya know? Having someone to share the happy times and the sorrow is so important. Myself I am happy alone now but I have already had my loves, three of them. I was never very good at pickin em! I always picked the bad boys, not the ones that would have treated me like a queen. All good though, I have had a very good life, many blessings, not complaining that is for sure.
2016 will be a very good year! You ask why I know this? Because we are going to MAKE it a very good year. Let's see...my resolutions for this year. !. Exercise more (even if it's just walking) 2. Excerise Rusty more 3. Take Rusty to the Doggie Park more. 4. Don't isolate so much 5.Manage my money better (or lack thereof) 6. Work toward stopping smoking.
Happy New Year
