I had a falling out on Monday and drank the rest of my wine I had in the fridge. :( I felt like shit afterwards too and woke up feeling like crap. I haven’t touched any alcohol since then, I think I just needed to get that out of my system. Being drunk isn’t fun anymore to me. It amazes that after 30 days of not having anything, how much I have been able to abstain from drinking. And what’s even more cool, now I’m not drinking because I don’t want to, not because I “have to” or because I’m taking a 30 day challenge. I just don’t really want to. It’s very liberating, I feel like I am slowly getting my life back on track, and I am happier because of it. :)
Well I will be drinking this weekend in Texas but that’s a given haha. And my hotel is across the street and I will be with one of my best friends from the Star Wars groups, so I am in good hands. He will throat punch anyone messes with me. I told him to stay close and just keep an eye on me, not that I need a baby sitter or anything, but it’s always good to have a friendly protective eye.
My Return of the Jedi collector buttons are now live if anyone would like one, I am offering them to friends and family first before they go on sale to the public on May 1st. I am glad I did this because in 2 days I already had about 85 buttons sold. It’s been keeping me very busy in the evenings and my husband has had to read and put River to bed practically every night this week. He hasn’t complained at all though, which is awesome. I love and hate these button runs, that is why I took a year to make this one. It’s a lot of work!
Last night I went down to the Post Office at about 9pm in my sweats, flip flops, no bra, and my hair sticking up all over. I looked really cute, but no fucks given here. An old lady asked me why I had so many buttons on my purse. “Are you in the girl scouts?” LOL. It was adorable. I was using the automated machine to try and ease my load for the next day so I’m not holding up the line at the PO. I actually apologized yesterday to the people in line because I had 8 packages. I hate making people wait on my ass and yes I am very well aware that I should be using online postage “click and ship” or whatever the fuck it’s called. I am old school, and call me crazy but I like talking to people and the clerks. I was always like that when I went to the bank too, I never used the ATM, I went inside the bank and stood in line. I just like people, what can I say. I also feel like as a society we rely too much on machines and automated shit to get us by. If you have the time, take the time to talk to someone. You might learn something, or they might be enlightened by you. That’s how I always look at it. And before you say I’m a hypocrite with using the automated machine, lol, I am still going to the post office today. :P And I was using the machine for the postal workers convenience, not mine. Machines aren’t bad at all. But it’s still good to have social interaction every once in a while.
Today is Kevin and I’s 7 year anniversary of our first date. :) He took me to Side Pockets in Independence. I will always remember him pulling me into him and planting a kiss on me while we were playing darts. And how I called my mom afterwards and told her that “this is a good one.” He certainly is. <3
Alright I’m signing off for now, I’ll take my laptop with me to Texas and write a little so you guys know I’m still alive and safe. Peace and as Wil Wheaton says, “don’t be a dick.” My general words of wisdom today hehe.
