Just A Quick Morning Update

Today I plan to go to the vet with my mom and Happy, finish my friend’s plush, start my other friend’s plush, and watch some more anime. Gonna see you all later on the compooter (I’m on my mom’s iPhone right now), and am going to leave you with this picture of the demon cat inside our dish washer.
Sayonara!

G’day Mate!

I dunno why that title’s there, I just wanted to say it Australian-like.

Hai. I don’t think I have a lot to say today. Lemme just tell you what we did.

This morning I woke up at around ten thirty-ish and went into my mom’s office (where she makes her jewelry). She was sitting at her compooter so I just sat down in the other chair and started talking to her about what we were going to do today.

“Well,” she said, “Randy’s at Nelson’s* house for the day and Dad’s working, so basically we have the whole house to ourselves. I’ve got taxes to do and I really wanted to work on some pendants…but right now I just really want to go get some coffee.”

“Ooh! Can I get some too?!” I said. I REALLY wanted so coffee because the small sips I’ve had before made me feel all bouncy and hyper.

She said no, but then I mentioned getting a mocha because it’s mostly chocolate. She said if I really wanted chocolate, I could just get a hot chocolate. I guess I really wasn’t thinking about anything other than coffee. I agreed and before you know it we were on our way there with Coldwater Creek and JOANN coupons.

When we got to Starbucks, the lady at the counter already knew my mom wanted a soy latte or something like that. Apparently she and my dad would go there often on Saturdays and talk for half an hour (I jumped up and down as said, “OOOH! THIS IS WHERE YOU GUYS GO ON THE WEEKENDS!!” for some reason that made me really excited…) First I got this croissant with cream cheese on it and my mom got a piece of the banana bread I think. My food sucked and made me want to barf, so my mom gave me five bucks to go up to the counter and get marble pound cake instead.

I listened carefully and the cake cost my mom $2.41 . I remember this because I plan to pay her back. It doesn’t seem fair that she had to buy me 2 things just because I didn’t like the first one. Anyway.

After 40 minutes of talking and drinking our stuff, we left and went to JOANN. We thought we needed glue when actually I remembered we had 2 bottles of it at home.

So my mom let me look around while she went pee. 

I FOUND THESE ULTRA ADVANCED OTHER WORLDLY SEWING MACHINES!!

They had touch screens and different settings that our’s (which is a Bernina sewing machine) didn’t and just boggled my mind. I found them ridiculous but intriguing.

I showed my mom when she was done and she taught me all about how they were also for embroidering. I had no idea machines could even DO that. We saw a lot of Singers, which Mom said used to be the best kind of machine you could get until they started making the parts on the inside out of plastic, and they all seemed really hi-tech too.

I FOUND BUTTONS!!

They were flowery and giant flower-shaped. I plan to use them to make plushies for my cousins when we visit them. I hope they like ’em.

By the way, I don’t have any pictures of my friend’s plush that I’ve been posting updates for this week. I’m not done working on it for the night since my mom needs to help me with this part and she still has to do taxes. 

Then we went to Coldwater Creek, this older-lady-shopping-store and bought my mom this skirt and two shirts. I knew she’d like ’em. I was right! 

I guess that’s it, other than I might play Minecraft with Randy later since he came home today.

Sayonara!

*Nelson is Randy’s best friend. Whenever he spends the night here, they seem to be quiet but if you go in his room they’re really loud. They play Minecraft and Terraria together and all sorts of shiz.

Personal Achievements and…Dis-Achievements?

So, I did come back for you guys! Woo! You weren’t abandoned!

Personal achievement: 

Worked on friend’s plush: 

Drew character Ginji Amano as planned: 

Well…2/3 isn’t so bad, right? Anyway, like yesterday, I made a little progress picture for my friend’s plush.

I kinda like it…but I don’t at the same time. Well, there’s no going back now. I already glued down the eyes (I’m not sure how to sew on buttons yet and my mom’s been busy writing a paper), the tie (although I did sew two pieces together [by hand when I really could’ve used the machine] to get it right!), and the ears were sewn on yesterday.

Tomorrow I plan to make his little paws! They need to be black with white tips since the character,, has white gloves.  It doesn’t sound very hard, but then again, everything that sounds easy to me ends up being the most difficult thing in the world. I suppose I underestimate.

On another subject of what I haven’t done, I didn’t write any more of The Locked World. I wish I had, but sadly no. That, and not being able to draw for a while frustrates me. I did get these awesome art pencils and pencil bag:

plus the eraser for my birthday, and I have nothing to use them for. It makes me sad as well…

Anyhow, I hope to see you all after dinner! Until then~

Sayonara!

I’m BAAACK!

I’ve been gone for a looong time. I apologize. Also, since it’s the 11th of June and this is the first post of the month. I’m gonna try to be more frequent this summer, I promise!

Ok, so here’s what happened: Trystan and Casey were with me from June 1st-5th, and after that my mom sent them home. I was grounded from the computer and phone from the 6th-9th, and then I was being creative for the rest of the weekend and most of today. I gotta say, I haven’t been on the computer ’til now, 4:11 pm, and I feel healthy! I spent all day Saturday (the morning I got my computer back) sitting in my bed and staring at the screen and frankly, I felt…dirty.

I kinda hated it, but I enjoyed wallowing for a bit. Then, on Sunday my family spent, say one and a half hours at the gym. It was really tiring, but I enjoyed the treadmill (in spite of my Anti-Exercise Summer Movement [or lack of movement])! Oh, and after the treadmill we went swimming and cooled off.

THEN! I got home and took a shower. I can’t remember what movie I watched, but I know I did something! Then today I spent it working on my friend’s plush project she enlisted me to do. Here is the progress so far because I was lazy on Day 1:

Also, the cat’s just there because he looks adorable while sleeping. 

Tomorrow, it will have been one week without Casey and Trystan…I feel a bit alone, but with them around I don’t really get anything done. Maybe I’ll go to Casey’s on Wednesday or something (but I’ll have to be back by Friday night since my mom and I need to go shopping [helloooo, Hot Topic!] and we’re gonna go to the gym again).

MWAHAHA, BY THE END OF THE SUMMER I MIGHT ACTUALLY BE IN GOOD SHAPE!

Oh and we’re going on vacation! Woo! I might blog a bit using my mom’s phone then, but I most likely will not have internet since we’re camping and driving all the way there which takes 3 days, or my mom will try and “conserve it’s battery life” when I think she secretly uses it in the porta-potties and then lectures us about having too much technology. I dunno, just a theory.

THAT was a long sentence. 

I feel out of breath just looking at it!

Hopefully I’ll make this a schedule, where I’m productive all day and then get on the computer around four to blog. So…there might only be one post a day, or I could do one at four and then one after dinner/gym time. Take your pick!

Sayonara!
