I kind of love when my friend R gets into deeply philosophical debates with me when he's drunk. It's the only time I feel as if I can keep up...
This is probably not going to come as a shock to anyone, but here is the deal:

Jonathan and I are not together as a couple anymore. We still care for each other very much, but we just can't seem to make each other happy. We still cohabitate and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Think of us as the new Berney and Roxanne - the people in my immediate circle know what I am talking about. We still hang out and do stuff together because we are very good friends.

We are trying very hard to make this as easy as possible for each other and for Little Human. There are many reasons that I am unable to move out right now, but I don't feel the need to explain myself to anyone in this post. If anyone that doesn't know wants to, message me, and I will tell you. This is the best we can do right now, and it is currently working. Adjustments may be necessary in the future, but for now we are both at least pacified.

I appreciate all of the support we have both received during this upheaval. I have discovered who I can count on when things go awry and I have found some new friends to turn to. Thank you.

I miss ~D~. I really enjoyed reading her posts and knowing what was going on with her. She writes so eloquently and sometimes says the most profound things. I check her LJ occasionally, just to see how she is, but I know I am missing so much more to her life. She at least seems genuinely happy now, which I think she desperately needed.
I know I can't friend her again. She wouldn't friend me back, and would probably tell me to fuck off (albeit more politely than that). I just wish that it hadn't all gone to hell in a handbasket.

I'll write a real update later. I am usually so busy that I have to remember to breathe.

Internet is up. It was actually up on the 1st, but the computer was buried and we had to have anew phone jack put in. But it is up now, and running.

The house is great, but I am having stress because we have so much crap! It is everywhere! It will all get dealt with. Most everything is here now except the stuff that was in the attic of the old house, and a few odds and ends. We need a shed, but realistically, even if we bought it tomorrow, it prolly wouldn't be up til next month. *sigh*

We do have beautiful views, and today we had a huge double rainbow that landed in the lot behind the house. It was spectacular.

Our next door neighbor is a lovely woman. Probably around my moms age, maybe a little older. She is nice to talk to and I like her a lot. I do think we may have a little busy body syndrome, but hopefully we won't be doing anything to incur her wrath.

My friend Sean will probably never help me do anything ever again. Jonathan rented a 14' truck instead of a 20' and so it took two loads and massive amounts of effort. Sean is a Godsend though.

I don't know what to call this house. The old one was The Duck's Nest, and since no one ever went there, I am tempted to just carry the name over to the new one. We were toying with The Duck's Asylum, since it is an asylum of sorts (in all meanings of that word), but it doesn't have the same ring to it. The Asylum would work, but doesn't bring my ducky love into the mix (*ahem*). What does everyone else think? I would make a poll, but haven't done so before now, and don't feel like figuring it out right this moment. Maybe tomorrow...

I went to the wine festival yesterday with [ profile] elegantdreams, [ profile] darkwench, and attempted to go with [ profile] vladmira. The latter was not allowed in due to ID issues beyond her control. The three of us had a lovely time despite the let down at the door! We were kicked out early because of lightning. I managed to get a bottle of cherry wine before we left, but [ profile] elegantdreams and [ profile] darkwenchleft with noting but the wineglasses.

So, off to Trader Joe's we went. We didn't have nearly enough wine and I promised ~N~ I would buy her a bottle (which I did). We then went back to her house and were rejoined by [ profile] vladmira, Joe, Justin, Berney, and Roxanne (before you wonder [ profile] ohno_jonathan_o was the designated driver that dropped us off at the festival and picked us up). It ws awesome, and I realized how much I miss my friends when I don't see them often.

Made ribs, potato salad, oven roasted corn on the cob, and biscuits for dinner and am enjoying a lovely wine from TJ's that is quite yummy, and I am feeling it quite a bit! I don't need no stinkin wine festival!

/end buzzed post...
We went to the NINJA concert and it was pretty decent. I went mostly for NIN and was a little disappointed, but it was still pretty kick ass. Jonathan was fine with the whole thing, I think. We sat with [ profile] elegantdreams,[ profile] capnbattlebabe, and [ profile] susanne_lisette. I have seen [ profile] susanne_lisette around all over the place for years, and knew she was close to other people that I know, but had never actually met her formally. I like her. Of course I would. All of the other people I know that love her can't be wrong!

Little Human was apparently a little gentleman at [ profile] eclypsia's (I cannot thank you enough for watching him last night) house, for which I am grateful, since he was just awful for most of yesterday.

I have now spent all of today attempting to figure out when I got so old. Jonathan got up this morning and appeared no worse for wear. I, on the other hand, can't get my brain to fire on all cylinders. I used to go out almost every week. I would stay out until at least as late as I did last night. There would usually be some physical exertion involved at some point after the being out part(*cough*). Now staying out until 2 practically ruins me. I'll ask you:

When did I get so old????

Hair is turning blue as we speak. I know, dying hair on the day of an occasion is a stupid idea, but I wanted blue hair. I will deal if it isn't right =)

Thank you so much [ profile] eclypsia and [ profile] valuedemployee for watching the Little Human for us tonight. You have no idea how much we appreciate it!

I also have not posted about my Mommy's Day prezzie. Jonathan got me an absolutely beautiful ring. I don't think it was made as such, but I wear it as an engagement ring because it is big and sparkly. When pics go up of hair, I will put up a ring pic too.

Okay, must give Little Human a bath (I refuse to let people take care of him when he is this dirty:How does he get so filthy so fast???) and figure out what to wear...

I missed my 7th Day of Happy yesterday! It just kind of got away from me.

As I was packing my jewelry boxes yesterday, I was going through my jewelry. Packing my jewelry boxes is no small task, I have 5 of them. Picking through each piece and remembering the story behind it, whether sad or happy, was nice. Not to mention the lovely newer acquisitions from [ profile] elegantdreams made me happy.

-There is the hematite crescent moon necklace that a lovely customer at the art store was wearing one day. I told her I liked it, and she gave it to me right there, even though she had just bought it at a trade show.

-The black seed pearl necklace that was made just for me by another customer at the art store. I need to restring it, because it is getting weak, but it is still one of my favorites.

-The red and black necklace and red rhinestone bracelet that was given to me on Valentines day by an exboyfriend. It was unexpected, and I hadn't realized how good at gift giving he was.

-My collar, made with love by [ profile] ohno_jonathan_o. I don't wear it much anymore, but I need to.

-My grandfathers security guard badge. I don't know why I have it, but it is in his jewelry box, and I like to look at it often.

Then there are the boxes themselves.
-My grandfather's box. It simple and clean and masculine.
-My upright cherry wood box that mom got me 10 years ago or so. It's not really me anymore, but I still love it.
-My little box that was a gift from my friend in Gallup. I need to call her, because she now has a son 1 day younger than mine, and I have missed her!
-The beautiful silver plated box that my mom got me 2 years ago. It has a raised woodrose design.
-And last but not least, the one I bought from ~n~. It is an upright with a mirrored door that has an etched rose. We all know how I feel about roses.

Sorry, rambling is over now...

I made a newish friend today. I really like the new girl at work, Robin. She is my age and we just get along great.

Everyone likes my hair, which I still need to post current pics of. This blond/pink thing is really cute!

That's about it for today, I think. I am ready for bed which is sad since it is 8:30...

I found my non blood/picked cousin on Facebook. It was a long shot, but if he was going to be on one of the networking sites, it would have been FB. I haven't talked to him in years. It is so nice to find people that you have missed terribly. He is remarried with two stepkids and a Harley. I am slightly amused.

[ profile] rubye_tuesday sent me to a journal of a guy who drives a cab in New Orleans. He is an interesting man and am looking forward to picking his brain and just generally having a new online friend.

Little Human is driving me nuts. He has learned how to climb on furniture. Nothing is safe!!!!

I got a random fact and a cute magnet in the mail. I feel lurved!

{EDIT} Also, Walmart has started carrying Tastykake. Now, most people aren't going to give a crap about this, but mom and I are in piggy heaven. One of the few things we missed about the east coast. Yummmmm...

I need some help. I am trying to figure out the perfect book to get for my friend's boyfriend (the couple are Dub's God Parents). He's like 30ish, slightly non computer geeky, enjoys reading things that challenge the mind a little. I am having the hardest time. I guess it is mostly because the last few books I have read are mostly fluff. I know I have some good literary geeky friends.

What do you recommend?
pandorablue: (Happiness)
I have realized something nice within the last few moments, and I felt the need to share.

I realized that all of a sudden, I have a bunch of really great friends. Some of them, I have known that they were great friends for years. Others are newer friends (a couple of which I have never even met IRL). I feel very close to these people. I like them a lot. I get worried if I don't hear from them for awhile. I enjoy reading their posts. I just generally enjoy their friendship.

It's nice to have kindreds in the world. It is also nice when you get the chance to stop for a minute and meet them. I think sometimes, we all move around so fast that we miss others like us. I don't show my appreciation with the people I like and love as much as I ought to. Consider yourselves loved!
pandorablue: (bloodroses)

a) Tell you why I friended you.

b) Associate you with something -- a fandom, song, color, photo, etc.

c) Tell you something I like about you.

d) Tell you a memory I have of you.

e) Ask you something I've wanted to know about you

f) Tell you my favorite userpic from your list

g) In return, you need to post this on your own journal
I just received from [ profile] elegantdreams:

"yoplait has a strawberry shortcake yogurt i would happily eat a bucket of it...and i thought everyone should know"

Now I am trying to determine, is this so everyone else can try it, or is that what she wants for her birthday???


Sep. 10th, 2008 08:27 am
I am going to have a busy month next month. I am seeing NKOTB with [ profile] eclypsia, then I am going to Metallica with [ profile] ohno_jonathan_o (and hopefully my friends Matt and Melissa), then I am going to Gordon Lightfoot with [ profile] rubye_tuedsay. When I finally decide to break out of a funk, I do it with abandon!

{EDIT} Matt and Melissa will be joining us. *does happy SQUEEEE dance*

Let's see. I went to K & J's wedding. She looked like a fairy princess brought to life. The dress was to die for and her in it, oh yes. J was adorable, although he looked dazed for a lot of the day. I was happy that K smiled throughout the day and night. It was a beautiful wedding.

In which I bitch and moan...A LOT )


May. 30th, 2007 02:54 pm
I have to give a *HUGE* THANK YOU to [ profile] ohno_jonathan_o and [ profile] valuedemployee for helping me get the dishwasher today. I didn't get much of a chance to talk to [ profile] valuedemployee, mostly due to trying not to get J back to work too late, and then I went to Wally World while they and my mom brought it home.
Right now it is happily doing a load of dishes in the kitchen, and we are both so grateful, and so happy. I am beginning to feel civilised! I love the ReStore. This dishwaher is about3 years old, and I got it for $75. It looks good, and seems to run great. *Does Happy Dance*


May. 6th, 2007 10:01 pm
I got to spend wonderful Blue Dragon time with both [ profile] elegantdreams and [ profile] sparklypelt. [ profile] ohno_jonathan_o was there as well, because he somehow always ends up lost in a group of women who are discussing things that maybe he doesn't want to know ("I used to be able to squirt ~S~ from 6 feet away!"). I was nice. I miss both of those women terribly. It's funny how things work out.
