So Freaking Productive!

So, I cleaned out my drawers today, and managed to free up two of them. I reorganized, and now I have an official sock drawer. Two drawers for pajamas (one for sets, one for separates and long-sleeved winter stuff), a drawer for tank tops, and a drawer for tee-shirts.

I packed away a LOT of stuff. Things I don’t wear anymore, or things that are worn out, or things that are simply not in season. Let me tell you how awesome it was to get rid of the 38D bras I wore when I was pregnant! And the big granny panties, ugh. Good riddance to those. And yes, I know I was pregnant like 3.5 years ago. I’m sometimes slow when it comes to getting rid of things!!!!

Laundry is still being done, so there is room left in the drawers for the stuff that’s being cleaned right now. How exciting!

I hung up clothes, I cleaned my room… I even thoroughly vaccummed (and when I say thoroughly, I mean used the attachments and everything). I even went to Meijer and Target and bought things to put all those clothes in!

So now I must reward myself… hmmm…. with food, preferably. :)

Weekend Recap (Pictures)

Okay, I know the weekend isn’t officially over, but I wanted to post anyway. Good times, man. Good times.

Friday night, Bob and Bizzy came over. We had pasta bake and watched Dazed and Confused and The Boondock Saints. But I didn’t finish BS because Ivy (swankivy) called! What fun that was. We are such dorks. The funny thing is that she’s one of my best friends and has been since 1998, but we don’t talk on the phone often at all. Most of our communication is long emails and IMs and Live Journal entries. So, actually talking to her was loads of fun, especially with the stories she had for me. Great times!!

Saturday, I woke up at 11am! And that wasn’t even on my own–Aidan came in and took off my face mask. Boy was it BRIGHT! Instant headache. It did fade for the most part, though. Headed down to New Concord for a wine-tasting, only I didn’t taste much wine. A storm blew in–violent but quick. I wasn’t scared! To give you some perspective–thunderstorms used to freak me the hell out. I mean, I’d have all out panic attacks where I’d curl into a ball, stuff my fingers in my ears, and practically cry. I’d be shaking uncontrollably. The more severe the storm, the worse the attack. But this one, I was wishing I could get outside and take some pictures. I did get a picture of the storm rolling in, though:


Came back here and took a nap with Aidan, then headed to the stores for some shopping. Went to Nordstrom to pick up my 7s. I got them in April, but in the tradition of expensive jeans, they were WAY too long, so I got them tailored. Now they fit perfecty. See, here’s the thing about 7s. The girl told me that once I bought a pair, I’d never want to go back to regular jeans. I thought “nah, I like my American Eagle jeans all right.” But she was right! All I want now are 7s. They fit perfectly. They’re as comfy as pajamas. And I look awesome in them. So of course I want more pairs, but they’re expensive. So I must refrain.

Anyway, I went to Gentle Wind (where I got my aura read and picked up the Nag Champa incense), and then headed to Target for laundry detergent and hangers. So now that I have that stuff, guess what’s on the agenda for today. Yup, laundry and hanging up, folding, and/or organization of clothing. So fun. NOT.

I still have to unpack from my trip out west! Then I get to finish packing for Chicago, but that will be a lot easier. I don’t plan on checking any bags. That’ll make things so much easier.

Anyway, I leave you with a couple more pictures:

Okay, now I’m mad. Chris KNEW I was planning on doing laundry today. I haven’t done it in ages and was way overdue. I am NEVER motivated to do laundry. SO WHY IN THE FRESH HELL DID HE PUT HIS CRAP IN THE MACHINE? He NEVER finishes–meaning that he leaves stuff in the dryer all the time. Grrrrrrrrrr. Like whoa. So tempted to take it out and put in on the floor. I mean, seriously. Grrrr.

ETA: Okay, okay, so he did my laundry too. *feels sheepish*

And Aidan is peeling the designs from his shirt for some reason. What is with boys this week?


‘Til next time!

My Aura

Saturday, I went into Gentle Wind to pick up some Nag Champa (I love that stuff) for some friends, and I decided to go ahead and get my aura read. The Auror was in, so I decided to go for it.

At first, I couldn’t really relax. She told me to put both my feet on the floor and take deep breaths. I had to put my hand on this machine, but she still had to let me do it twice before getting a clear reading. Then she gasped and said “it’s beautiful!”

My aura’s core color is white, which means: spiritual, enlightened, energy sensitive, transcendent. She told me I had a high vibration of energy, which means that a lot of people are attracted to me. But I try to protect myself by staying outside of my body. I’m not grounded. I live in another world most of the time.

It’s so true. I am very rarely HERE. I’m always in another world. Zoning out. Daydreaming. Forgetting where I am, and getting cranky and resentful when I’m forced to leave my other world and hit reality.

I have walls. To keep people from getting too close to me. Again, so true. I will pursue a friendship like crazy, but then I’ll run if they get too close or too clingy. If that person goes away, then I want him or her back ASAP.

I’m an empath, which means I’m very in tune to other people’s emotions and energy. She mentioned something about being perfectly happy, then for no reason, being upset or really low suddenly. She said to stop and ask “is this mine?” Because it might not be–I could simply be absorbing other’s energies–which would explain the protectiveness.

My aura is only at 40% because I’m holding so much back. I have such energy, I attract so many people, but I hold back to protect myself. I have to learn to protect myself in a healthier way.

My other colors are indigo and violet. Violet being another highly spiritual color. One of the energies showed a male presence–possibly a guardian watching over me, and being with me. How comforting is that?

The spiritual thing. I’m no stranger to hearing that. Many, many people have told me that I’m extremely spiritual. It may explain why I’m always floundering around. Soaking up many beliefs, trying to find the one in which I fit.

It was a very interesting time, and I learned a lot about myself. Or maybe I just realized it, even though it had always been there. :)
