Day 30: Good Day

I woke up feeling really great. I don’t know if it’s because I slept really well or the fact that my house was clean when I left my house or that my mommy is visiting, but I felt really good.

Now about the terrible night that I had after I realized that WordPress decided to work against me…it took me over an hour to fall asleep because I was beyond upset. I’ve been posting every single day, even when I’ve felt like shit or been dead tired and a glitch ended that. I could cry about it and refuse to post anymore because of that mishap, but I’ve made a decision; I’m going to act like it didn’t happen and carry on. However I’m going to be much more viligant about making sure my posts go through because it’s become obvious that I can’t trust this app.

So if you’ve got nothing better to do with your time you can still come here and read about me everyday. Sounds great right?

In the post that got deleted I talked about the half table that I’m working on, but to be honest it feels wrong to force myself to try and recreate the entire post, so I’ll give you a brief highlight. I painted one half of the half table project a beautiful mineral color and put a light blue wash over that. I’m getting ready now to go outside and lightly distress it before sealing the whole thing up. After that half is complete I’ll start on the other half which is going to be a birthday gift for a friend who has a tiny apartment and no table.

I’m back on days on right now, so I probably won’t get very much in the way of other projects completed, but of course I’ll keep you updated. Thanks for sticking around. ๐Ÿ™‚

Day 29:

I feel like I was super unproductive today and as I writing this I realize that I didn’t even take fucking pictures while walking around the 2 stores I’ve been in today. Wow Chels. Good freaking job.

I made myself get up relatively early this morning had brrakfast, let Lois out of the kennel (she’s in heat, so we have to keep the dogs separated), put a coat of the watered down blue on the top of the table, and then started watching a movie until it was time for me to leave my house. The table plan has changed, for the half I’m taking to work I decided that the stencil would be a bit much for my office space, so I painted the top to match the legs and once I get back home later (it’s currently 1 pm and I’m waiting to have my hair done) I’ll lightly distress the top and legs and then seal everything in. No chairs were found to go with my table, so I’m still on the lookout.

I did manage to find 2 windows for projects at the craft show as well as this super cute sign.

I don’t know exactly where I’m going to put it yet, but I love it soooooooo much I almost bought the other 2 they had just because.

I had hoped to get to work on the other half of my table today, but I doubt that’s going to happen.

Tomorrow it’s time to back to work, bleh.

Oh crap, I think word press done messed me up. I just opened the app to finish off today’s post and it looks like yesterday’s wasn’t posted!!! If that’s true I’m going to be totally pissed and heartbroken because it means I broke my freakin resolution because of tech malfunction. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Anyway…I hope it went theough, but now I’m upset so I’m just going to end this.

Day 27: Feelin Good

My feet feel amazing! It had been far too long since my last pedicure, so of course they had to break out the cheese grater to get the dead skin off my feet which almost got them kicked in the face, but my feet are so soft now. The hot stone massage was invigorating and made me feel so refreshed and relaxed, I could have totally napped after.


Can I just say that I had not realized that I was so pale. I mean I’ve always been pale, even in the summer my skin usually goes from white, to red, and then just slightly less white, but I had not realized how truly milky I was looking. After sluffing all the dead skin off my large feet I was like damn Chelsea you look like like a ghost.

This may not be the most politically correct way to say it, but I like being so white. It works for me, I look good pale and I’ve always looked a little strange to my eyes when tan. Being a ghost just works for me.

I also took apart and cleaned a table I bought a while back from a thrift store for 10 bucks and I’m turning it into two small tables. One will be going to work to serve as the table for the waiting area and the other to a friend who has a tiny apartment and needs a table. Pictures will be posted tomorrow of progress.

I had planned on going to Zumba today, but I had an enormous headache after lunch and all the aspirin in the world would not help, so I decided to start fresh on Monday.  Zumba is every Monday and Wednesday, so I’ll do that twice a week and then walk the other days.

I sort of moved things around in the garage so that I can work out there tomorrow on multiple projects. My car is in desperate need of a good cleaning as well, so maybe that will get done tomorrow…eh maybe I’ll just do it Friday morning before my trip to the thrift store. We shall see.

Day 26: wow

Well the weather outside is frightful, but my bed is so delightful and since we’ve no place to go man this blows. It’s been raining all day here. I had to reschedule my hair appointment because reasons…so I stayed in my house all day long. Moreover I stayed in my bed for a major chunk of this cold day; took a nap around 1 pm and didn’t wake up until after 5 pm. It was glorious and obviously I was overly tired.

I’m making pork chops for dinner and then I’ll probably crawl back into bed shortly. Being lazy today probably wasn’t the best choice, but I did get some laundry done and after dinner I’ll go out in my garage (with some sweats and a long sleeve shirt) and move things around so I can work on stuff tomorrow.

Pedicures are still on for tomorrow, so once again I have to shave. Bleh. The pedicure lady is the only one I’ll shave for and only because I don’t want her judgemental gaze on my stubbly legs. They already talk shit about the fact that my feet are bigger than most women’s, despite the mental torture I will be getting the damn pedicure because I need some pampering.

On the plus side because I slept the day away my caloric intake is going to be low and my calories burned even lower (that may not be great…).

I hope you all had a great day and stayed safe in the nasty weather.

Day 25: Impossible Day

Today went by sooooooooooooo sloooooooooow. I didn’t get to have a delicious smoothie for breakfast because some of the girls wanted to order shakes (mine was groddy), so the beginning of my day wasn’t the best, but then something amazing happened. I found Lonesome Dove on TV and it made very thing better, for a little while at least.

The day seemed to drag on and that’s probably due to the fact that I was so ready for 5 pm to roll around so I could blown that popsicle stand. It’s my Friday and I was over work. Another reason I was ready for the day to be end is that I have a hair appointment tomorrow!!! My roots are in desperate need of lightening and I’ve been so excited to try out new hair for the new year.

We have a very busy week ahead of us. I need to get at least 2 of the major projects finished and put away for the craft show, I made grown up plans for girl time on wednesday, and we’re going to my favorite place to pick up supplies on friday. Aside from those important things I also need to clean my house, plan out a menu for the week, bathe the dogs, organize my storage building, and get my yard cleaned up. Anyone wanna come help? ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll be really nice and make you cookies. Buckle up for the ride kiddos.

I’m going to turn in early, big surprise I know, but I need to get an early start on my day so I can squeeze every last second out of my first morning off before my hair appointment. 

Night folks!

Day 24: Rated Mature

I watched a video today from Jenna Marbles entitled Things I’m bad at as an adult, and listening to her list made me think about all the things I may not be the best at in the adult world. The link to said video is:

Here’s my list:

1. Answering my door – anytime someone knocks I contemplate throwing myself on the ground and crawling around so I don’t have to answer. Part of this issue is my dogs are always trying to escape or attack guests with their sloppy kisses.

2. Opening mail – not even touching on the fact that I forget to check the mail all the time unless I’m waiting for a package. I usually throw my mail into my little organizer without even opening it and if I do open it I don’t ever respond or deal with whatever the letter was about.

3. Managing my time – I have no conception of time. I only know what day it is and further than that I’m lost. I always think I’ve got plenty of time to get things done and then I always run out of time.

4. Keeping dates – this may be more due to my introvert side, but when I make plans I rarely keep them. I forget that I’ve made the plans or I just don’t feel like going so I cancel.

5. Remembering important dates – namely birthdays. I have the really important ones, like immediate family, but anyone else ha. If I didn’t have them programmed in my phone I would never remember anyone else’s birthday.

6. Eating stuff that’s good for me – I think maybe that one is self explanatory.ย  I’m working on this.

7. Managing my money – super bad, like monumentally bad. Most of money just goes down the drain. I rarely buy things for myself, but I’m always buying stuff for the house, my family, or the dogs. I have no monies!

8. Speaking to other adults – I’m talking my elders and I’m not really bad at speaking to anyone, I’m polite, sweet, and thoughtful (just tooting my own horn). But I get serious anxiety when I think I may have to talk to someone I don’t already know.

9. Dealing with authority figures – ugh, anytime my boss or any supervisor calls me while I’m on days off I have to be standing to answer the phone and then I have to pace while conversing with him. I have no idea why, but I’m terrified of disappointing my authority figures, so I always assume I’ve done something wrong if someone is taking time out of their busy schedule to call me.

10. Expressing my feelings – moreover, I’m terrible at telling people what I want. Most of the time I’m more concerned with what others need and I push my own feelings and needs aside.

11. Hygiene/personal appearance – this is probably the most embarrassing, but I’m trying to be honest. I’m not saying I’m a dirty girl, but I tend to forget to shower when I’m on days off or I tell myself what’s the point of showering of I’m just going to go out and work in the shop. As far as personal appearance goes, let’s just say it’s kind of rare to see me all done up. I’m usually sporting a messy bun, jeans, and whatever shirt I can find in the morning that’s clean. I’ve never been a super girly girl, but now that I’m in my mid 20s I think maybe I should look a little more professional at work, we’ll as professional girl can look with purple hair. ๐Ÿ™‚

12. Have I mentioned I don’t like odd numbers? Haha.

I’m sure there are a million other things I’m bad at, but there are also things I’m good at. I won’t give you a list because I’m not an egomaniac, but I will give you one thing I’m really proud of being good at.

I’m good at making people feel at ease. I don’t like for anyone in my presence to feel uncomfortable EVER. I have a quote on my arm from Mother Teresa that reads, “Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” Those are words I try to live my life by everyday. I just want to remind myself that everyone deserves my respect (unless they do something to lose said respect) and kindness.

What are some adult things you’re bad at (obviously only applicable if you’re an adult, if you’re not you are a lucky son of a gun)? More importantly what is something you’re good at?

I do not want you to measure yourself against anyone else’s idea of what a good adult is, only use what you’re ideas of things adults should be good at. And never ask someone else what you’re bad at, only what you are good at, because you should never use other people’s conception of you to sway how you feel about you.
