I’ve been busy. So busy. And a million and one things are all going on at once. It’s like a social fireworks show.
I’ve been working too. And doing my knee exercises and taking my supplements and NOT taking any medicine anymore, which makes me happy.
But overall not happy yet. Getting better. 2012 was a really bad year and 2011 was almost as bad. So after two bad years I am looking forward to having this one be a good year.
It’s been cold here. Not the coldest it’s ever been but cold enough to make me want to crawl back under the covers until April.
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to everyone. I spent Christmas Eve with my extended family and thought about how we’re all going to start having babies in the next decade or so and our family will grow so much. It will be nice to watch my kids, my nieces and nephews, and my cousins’ kids (first cousins? not sure) playing together. Or fighting. This is how you can tell I’m getting old.
For New Years I actually, gasp, went out and did stuff. I went all the way to Astoria to see a good friend who had been hibernating (refusing to come outside and see anyone) since last March. This is the same friend Squeaky loooves. He would scream with joy if he saw her now. It was very nice to see her again and I had missed her quite a bit.
What else? A good friend of mine is about to have a baby. It’s very exciting for me. Haha, her too I imagine! She is my first friend to have a baby. I’ve had “friends” who already had babies and I’ve had friends who have gone on to have babies once our friendship has expired but she is my first real, close, good friend to have a baby. A baby that I feel I will get to watch grow into adulthood because we will always be friends. She is having a daughter and I can’t wait to meet her.
I can’t really predict which friend will be the next one to have a baby. My lifelong friend is getting married this year but I think she’s planning on waiting a while before having a baby. None of my other friends are married or engaged.
I’m definitely not having a baby right now. My knees would hate me. Can you imagine? They’re just starting to feel better and then I ask them to carry the weight of a squirming watermelon? I think they would snap as a form of protest. My mind would also snap because I am nowhere near ready to be responsible for another human. My dog is bad enough and he can’t get anyone pregnant or drop out of school or get arrested. I should make sure to have kids with a very stable and normal man so they at least have a chance of being good people.
I’m thinking about jobs too. I’m applying for some positions at companies I can do well in. I’m probably going to take a Biology class next semester. My knees made me unable to go last semester so I’m just going to sign up for one class.
I’m not moving to NJ. If you know of a super cheap place to live let me know. You can get free pet care for at least a year!
Speaking of pets, I got two adorable ID tags for dogs custom made. One for my mom and one for me. For our dogs of course! Just wanted to share the link with you guys in case anyone was looking for a unique dog tag. They came out very nice and the one I got for my dog is so light you can hardly feel it. I got my mom a copper one and I got an aluminum one for me. Very happy with these purchases!
What else? Avian Organics had a special so I ordered some Mayan Gourmet Mash. No other bird orders. I’ll post pictures when I get them.
Oh yes, I moved everything out of my old apartment for good because the lease ended. I had a few boxes of bird stuff and I decided to take a picture of one of them. This is after I already brought a bunch of bird stuff the first time!
