payday!

First, v. exciting! I got my first UVU paycheck! Hooray. I kind of want to spend it all on project supplies. :) Actually what I really want to do is get myself kitted out to do some glass gilding. I’ve got a pretty big list of things I need for it. And hey, first paycheck! […]

So, funny way to find some motivation! No food at home and I didn’t leave work to get some lunch until after 12, which meant long lines! I hate going places like Zupas (salads) after 12 because you wait forever and there’s a crowd. So I decided to go get some chicken nuggets at Chick-Fil-A. […]

Long day. Up early to get to work by 8 so I can leave for class at 5. Then class. Then I had to run some errands and finally home past 9. I think early(ish) to bed tonight for me! Luckily I did not have to prepare anything for class tonight. We reviewed all their […]

I got up super early and made it home lickety split. I hugged my cat, had some lunch and then took a nap. It was lovely! I’m trying to decide what to do for the evening. I could be productive. There are lots of things to do. Prep for class, spend some time getting caught up […]

Just a quick post. I’ve made it to Winnemucca! I’m all settled in the very lovely little hotel room courtesy of my sister Joleen. Thanks Joleen!! <3 Smooth drive so far. I was weirdly tired the first leg of the trip, but once I turned on some audio books I was good to go. Still […]

Today was the big move from the hospital to the skilled care facility. My mom will be there for a bit for some recovery and physical therapy. I got to be chauffeur. It went alright, although a bit rough getting her out of the car. It’s a lovely place. Nice courtyard, fountains, lots of activities. […]

Finally got a good chunk of work done. I would have gotten more done is Windows 10 wasn’t made of pure evil. Oh I hate it so much! :-) Luckily moving forward I don’t need to really work on this laptop, just do some demos for class. I’ve decided to call it quits on trying to […]

I got a little work done this morning. It’s just so hard to function in Not My Normal Space. But I tried. I’ll get more done tomorrow now that I am pretty much situated. This whole deal is reminding me that I just generally hate dealing with laptops and  Windows laptop on top of that […]

Today was another day chillin’ with the fam. My mom had back surgery this morning (it went very well!) so there were many hours just hanging out in the waiting room. There will be more of the same tomorrow. I have so far not done any work while here, so back to it tomorrow in […]

Spending some time in Santa Rosa for the week, hanging with the family. I’ve still got to do some working remotely for work, but I’ll get around to it. Tomorrow. :) I did get a little bit of walking in today, so that felt good to stretch out from all the sitting yesterday. And I […]
