I thought I’d come back and update some things or simply write to write. It’s what, Tuesday? I feel like it should be the end of the week. I’m thankful it’s not though because I work on Friday.

I’m still having issues with feeling sick to my stomach before work. I get very anxious and I’m not even sure why. Monday was a good day at work. I had a six-hour shift which ended up being a seven-hour shift because someone called in and I offered to stay another hour. I told them that they shouldn’t think of a habit of this because it’s just not happening. My goals for the day included 2 product protection plans (PPP) worth $20 or more, 3 reward sign-ups, and 4 add-ons (which are paper or stamps). I ended up with 3 PPP’s worth $22, 2 reward sign-ups, and 1 add-on worth $47 (equivalent to 4 add-ons). So overall, it was a really good day for me. I’m going to channel that feeling of accomplishment on Friday when my anxiety rises up in my throat and I am worried about work. I also worked on a print job all day, cutting, laminating, and cutting again. I hope the job ended successfully because I’m not the one who finished it. They seemed very particular about having it done a certain way and if all my hard work throughout the day goes and gets messed up, well that would just suck.

I am trying to channel the success of the day to tell myself that Friday shouldn’t be an anxious day and that I have nothing to worry about because I *am* capable of doing the job they expect from me. *shrugs* Guess we will see on Friday, now won’t we?

Dentist Appointments

Last I wrote, I told you I cracked my dentures. I had to drop them off on the other side of town to be repaired. Well, I can tell you they did an excellent job and I’m good to go once again!

In other dental news, Mikhail has a dentist appointment on Thursday. Because we have him under Mike’s insurance instead of mine, it is going to cost us $128 for his three fillings he needs. Ugh! I’m not used to paying for care but considering we don’t have to wait until the 1st of the month and fight hundreds of other patients for appointments to be seen, it’s not so bad. Mikhail has been seen right away. We don’t have to wait for appointments. If something happens to his teeth we know he won’t have to go in agony for weeks because we can’t get him in. Sure, it will cost us a little more but it’s a small price to pay to get good care, right?


I haven’t written about coloring in a while. I finally bit the bullet and gathered all my funds and splurged on myself on something I’ve wanted for months. I finally bought myself Prismacolor pencils. They’re top of the line, artist-quality color pencils. Sure, I’m only coloring pages in a coloring book. I don’t need top of the line, artist-quality color pencils but I REALLY  wanted them. Here’re some pages I did before I got the color pencils:


Not too shabby, right? I thought those pages were pretty good. Then I got the pencils:


Look at all those colors! I told Mike how much I spent on them and he almost choked on his drink. “You have no business saying anything about what I’ve spent on my car!” Babe, that’s a little different. Your car accumulated a WAY bigger cost value than these pencils. Mine were a one time fee with hours of gratification, months even. Your car was way more expensive overall, yes you get satisfaction for months with your car but you can only drive your car for a few months. See what I’m getting at here? LOL, I’m just joking. He doesn’t mind. It’s my money and he knows how badly I wanted them. He thinks they were a tad pricey but whatever makes me happy, right?

Anyway, here are a few pages I did without the blender pencils I found out I needed them (which I ordered promptly):


Here’s how it looks with the blender pencil:


Aren’t they beautiful!? Oh, the glorious things I can do with these pencils. I’m learning every day how to use these pencils and increase my artistic abilities. I’m pretty proud of the outcomes.

I suppose I’m going to get the boys ready for bed. Mike spent the day at home today due to stomach pains so I got to spend the day with him. He’s unsure if he’s going to work tomorrow or not. Guess we’ll find out when the time comes. Well, talk to you all again soon.

  1. Bit of a weird thing to say but your colouring is amazing! I love those relaxing ‘adult’ colouring books at the moment :)
