Yup indeed

So, after spending quite a lot of money, it came to conclude I lost the use of my hard drive.

Everything is gone. Ok, not exactly.

First off, yes, I do back up my stuff. I actually double back up my stuff. Lately, though, I've had a lot on my plate.

First, my computer had to be reformatted. There's stuff going on at work and home and since I'd been so careful before, I'd never had issues.

My second back up was up to date enough, I guess.I had stuff from the beginning of 2012, but everything afterwards is gone. The one the broke was my main backup, that's why.

So, no matter how careful I am, it matters not as those string-pullers of fate find ways to get a laugh at my expense. Good for them.

 Lost about a years worth of well organized photos. Lost my the new writings I started up again. Lost a lot of blog posts I had been drafting/sketching. Blah.

 Oh, and this new blogging format. I hate it.

In my moping, I went ahead and did some shopping therapy.

I was conflicted between buying seeds, food and skincare. I ate some ice cream, so it was down to seeds and skincare. Skincare won out. Hahaha.

Now my credit card hurts.

Also, why is going sudden hot and sudden cold lately? It's been so humid lately. Makes me just want to sleep all day and night. Why must I work? Hahaha. Naw, I don't mind working. Although, I should figure out what I want to do and have fun doing it.

Need a career change, but don't know what.

So, how is your neck of the woods?

Booooo

(ominous cloud of doom)
Sad. That I am.
Well, I had a few book reviews prepared.
With personal information, research and pictures saved.
In an external hard drive.
That I stupidly dropped. On hardwood floor.
So, now - I am in a doom situation. Well, not really
But, I'm rather sad and annoyed.
Anyways, I've been running around trying to find a place to fix it with the response being that I'd be lucky to just extra all the data. Which should costs a few months worth of wages. Oh gosh. Someone just put me out of my misery.

Lots of personal stuff going on and work is being a complete biotch! Mostly, I'm working with some unpleasant people. One of which is widely known for being unpleasant. I mean, really? Do I have a sign on my face that says "Doormat" or "Easy to push around"?
Ugh, I'm so frustrated by everything.

Luckily, I have volunteer with doggies at the moment. The only thing saving me these days. People are not able to help. At least animals are able to. :)

So - Please accept my apologies for the lack of book reviews for a while. Any review will be littered with typos, spellings, and grammar errors. If any at all.
Possibly just a lot of venting.

Ugh, I'm just going to go mope. *curls up cocooned in quilt and stares out the window*

Long weekened

Guess what I did this past weekend?



Here's a hint.





Have you guessed it yet? Here's another hint.




Yes, you guessed correct. I labored over Labor Day weekend.

Painting...



This weekend, we (old guy and I) painted two closets. It was only two closets, but it was freaking exhausting. The heat didn't help.




That's me near exhaustion. Can you tell? Also, that mask barely helped with the fumes. The heat really didn't help the situation. By the end, I just stopped using the mask. It was so hot/humid I had problems breathing, plus the mask got really uncomfortable as I worked up a sweat.


Until next time...probably soon. And I will hopefully have some reviews too~

ahahaha

I had the craziest dream...I dreamt Once Upon a Time started and I was watching the show.

Instead of how the story progressed, in my dream, Emma was dreaming. In her dream, she saw Graham guiding her into a palace floor lined with individual curtain closed beds. Everywhere lined up like mazes. She was asking what happened and he was taking her and naming each unseen occupant behind the curtains as a fairytale character. And they reached sleeping beauty's (with some sparkly glitter floating from small openings where the top cover cloth and the edge of the side currents met. Graham was basically explaining these were the fairytale characters subconscious being suppressed by the curse.

And then I woke up and I thought it was such an awesome idea, I started writing it down on a notepad to blog about it... went downstairs while trying to think how to write and my fam had breakfast while I tried to scribble away...

Then I actually woke up! O_O I must really want to watch that show and I must miss writing a heck of a lot if I'm dreaming about writing. Hahahaha.
