      Lots of stuff has happened since I last posted and I'll probably forget to mention several things, but here's a run down:

      • Heald College closed down and thousands of employees, myself included, were laid off.
      • I job hunted for 2 months and then found myself working for another career college doing almost the exact same thing, but for more money. Yay me!
      • Yay me indeed, because I had bought a brand new car the week before I lost my job. Whew.
      • It's an Elantra GT. And by new, I mean the model year is the same that we are currently in.
      • I use my new fancy car to drive Aurora to her new fancy montessouri school.
      • And Tony to his speech therapy classes, which he still attends and is doing AMAZING in.
      • He also tried out dance this summer, but it was an epic fail.
      • So now he'll be starting bowling in a few weeks.
      • Aurora will continue with jazz, tap, and ballet, but has dropped hip hop for the fall.
      • Speaking of dance, Aurora did a performance for the Stockton Gay Pride Festival this last month and she was FIERCE GUUUURL, WERK IT!
      • I'm still working as a clown.
      • And a tutor.
      • And a henna artist, on the side.
      • Cuz moneyz.
      • Miguel went to Georgia for work a while ago and enjoyed the two weeks away, but his full time status still feels like part time sometimes.
      • A few weeks ago, we had to put our pit mix, Thunder, to sleep. He had an aggressive cancer that came out of nowhere and spread over less than a month. We miss him, and so does Brownie (our minpin), who is acting out by escaping into the neighbors' yard and trying to hump her tiny fluffy dog.

      So what've you fine people been up to?

      So it's been a little while, I know, but I don't have too much to report. Aurora starts break from school this coming week, do she'll be spending some quality time with grandparents. Tony just started speech therapy and I can already tell it's going to do so much for him. Right now the only thing that he hasn't improved on is communication, so I'm looking forward to seeing his progress in the next few months. So all-in-all the kids are well.

      Work is good. Writing is good. Husband is good. Life is good.

    • ABBA Tribute

      4 years ago

      Last night I went with a friend to the last free Concert In the Park of the season, which just so happened to feature an ABBA tribute band called Waterloo. I don't really care so much about ABBA, but Aurora likes the movie Mama Mia, so we figured why not. The best parts of course weren't actually listening to the band... instead, I very much enjoyed running into a number of people I haven't seen in forever, stopping by a corner store in my childhood neighborhood and talking to the owner who somehow still remembered me (or at least my family... he thought I was my aunt), and watching Aurora make friends with interesting people, like that guy with the kite, or that gang of potheads over there that had a Frisbee.

      All in all, I realized I need to get out more.

    • I Am So Sunburned

      5 years ago

      Like seriously. My grandmother always acts like I'm a sissy if I put on sunscreen because they have umbrellas over their pool. Well newsflash, grandma - Your pool only has umbrellas covering 1/3 of it, and the rest is open season for the sun to turn your super white grandchild into a crispy critter.

      Luckily my children tan like their father, and I always put sunscreen on them when I forget to do it for myself. Today my children are caramel, like the drizzled toppings of a refreshing bowl of ice cream, while I look like a walking talking hot tamale... And not the good kind of Mexican food tamale, but the nasty cinnamon candy that burns your tongue when you eat too many of them.... THAT kind of hot tamale.

      P.S. YouTube is taking over my life. ERB, YouTubers React, Nerdy Nummies.... I'm glued to the interwebs.

      How adorable!!! That's so exciting! I'm so happy for you.

      I understand that in parts. My job disappeared with my professor (who is on sabbatical), and I instead get money from random tutoring hours, which is great because I get paid more per hour, but some weeks there's no one wanting my help, others there are too many people for me to have a life and enjoy my senior year. It's frustrating.

      The show sounds adorable!

      As for my life, I'm in my senior year of undergrad now. I'm taking 18 credits, doing a senior thesis, applying to grad school, and dealing with a new relationship and trying to have a social life as well as actually living in a house and having to prepare my own meals. So it's a downpour of new things from all sides, but it's all good because I'm just...happy. It's almost bizarre, but so wonderful. I'm just really enjoying living my life. :)

      Have a happy Halloween? I'm assuming Aurora went out trick-or-treating--what'd she dress as?

      Thanks. The break up was a difficult and less than fun thing to go through, but I'm now dating the Navy guy I'd mentioned. His name is Ian. So I'm having fun and working hard. This year will be quite different for me.

      I haven't been on much, but I love your entries! I'm so excited about you and your pregnancy--and very jealous of your going to Disney! How is everything in your life going?

      Yes.

      They were weird because of the buckles. You don't normally see corsets where you snap in the front and lace up the back. But it was actually not uncomfortable. Probably because I could've gone tighter. However--several nice things came out of wearing a corset--the one that really comes to mind is I stood up straight, VERY straight. Corsets are wonderful for helping posture, apparently.

      In reply to TabbyKat, #1:

      Do you, by chance, have vitaligo? (no idea if I'm spelling that right.)



      I replied on the picture, but I don't know if you'll look so I'll say it here. I do. I've had it since I was a baby.

      At least two of them have a bit of a back story to be fair...

    • Ronicus

      It's complicated though lol one of them I may literally have no chance at all with it could just be wishful thinking.

    • Ronicus

      8 years ago

      .....that's actually a really good idea....problem is I would have to open up to someone to do it lol

    • Ronicus

      UNTIL they have them. I'm worried about breaking hearts and making bad choices and all that jazz.

      What if there was a third girl in the mix >_<

    • Ronicus

      8 years ago

      She's been gone for a week and she'll be gone for another week. Maybe I'm too focused on my work but it hasn't been unbearable.

      Also...there's more than one girl...the other one is on holiday as well....

    • Ronicus

      8 years ago

      That's easy for you to say. The last person I was dating was hard to miss because she demanded MARITAL levels of committment. I couldn't get away from her after a while.

      I'm not getting that horrible feeling....not yet anyway....
