My Car Is Lonesome Tonight…

Well, I haven’t been in my car since Friday morning. The weekend was spent at my mom’s with the munchkin. It was pretty uneventful, and Sunday was an awesome day of just lounging around and lazily enjoying the shitty weather. I am now residing at my dad’s for house/dog sitting through Friday. This actually works out quite well for the week. I will miss being in my car, but it will be nice to sleep in a place that remains heated throughout the night. I am quite sure my uvula thanks me. If you don’t get that reference you need to go back and read my past scribblings. Do it now!!!!! Just kidding! You can finish this one first. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Didn’t get my workout in today due to my laziness, and I feel like a blob because of it. If the office is closed due to inclement weather, which I doubt, I’ll be making up for the lost gym time tomorrow. We shall see…

Finally watched the Dracula Untold movie. It was actually pretty frickin good! Loved the sweet twist at the end. Totally not being sarcastic right there. It was sweet. ๐Ÿ™‚ After I cooked up some tasty chicken for dinner at dad’s, I rented a movie and was sadly disappointed. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Dumb and Dumber To wasn’t nearly as funny as I thought it was going to be. I was so excited! It had been so long!!! On the bright side, it was much better than the prequel!!!! Dear God!!! I don’t know if I’ve seen a movie worse than that one! On second thought I probably have, but Dumb and Dumberer totally takes the absolutely awful and terrible award! Hands down!

I got to expose the mini me to my favorite Cable Guy scene today!!! A few weeks ago it was Billy Madison and the swan! Today it was the fight scene at Medieval Times! Of course I made her watch the Kirk and Spock fight scene first to understand the hilarity! Oh she got it all right! Now she knows why I start singing the fight music from that scene along with doing the prrrrrrrrrrrhah sound. If you have seen this scene, you know exactly what those letters sounded like in your head, and that’s all that matters.

On that note I am going to bed. I am sleepy. It is way past my bedtime! Good night and sweet dreams! ๐Ÿ™‚

Just A Quickie!

I don’t really have too much to write about this evening, but I did tell someone I would add something to the blog this evening. First off, I would like to say hi to a very old friend of mine who finally decided to sit down and read my craziness! Took you damn long enough SSG!!!!! He’s not a staff sergeant. He’s the sleeveless shirt guy!!! He knows who he is!!!

I would also like to say hi to the woman who keeps my one vanity looking beautiful! So hi Sam!!!!! And my hair looks awesome! As usual! You rock!!! Yes. I got my hair did this evening. I swear one of these days I am just going to book an appointment to have my hair played with! I just want to sit there while someone practices fishtails or braids or just runs their fingers through it. Girl. Guy. I don’t care. I could just sit back, relax, close my eyes and be in heaven. Seriously! Can this be a legit service offering???? You know what I am talking about!!!! It feels so incredible when someone runs their fingers through your hair!!! Aaaaaaaahhhhhhh…

Anyway, not too much going on. Supposedly there is a super black moon tonight? I haven’t seen it. I need to pull up my night sky app to find out where the hell the moon is! Yeah yeah. There are plenty of terrible jokes that could go with that, but I don’t even have to say them, because you already thought them! Don’t deny it! If you can’t laugh at yourself, you can’t laugh at anyone else. And believe me! I laugh at myself a lot!!!! If anyone can trip over an invisible step or rock on the floor, it’s me. And maybe my munchkin… Poor thing got my grace!

With that little blurb of nonsense, I shall sign off and get some sleep. Between the pelting, asshole rain and the cold trying to freeze any limbs not covered by a blanket, I have not gotten much sleep the past few nights. I think tonight will be better. ๐Ÿ™‚

Good night and sweet dreams! :*

What I Have Learned Thus Far…

This post is going to follow the title. I will do my best to keep my emotional craziness internal this evening. Although I do need to mention that it is a great night for writing in the car as the rain falls gently. Unlike when it woke me up through last night when it decided to come in random, pelting waves of wake the fuck up! Yeah. Not a good night of sleep. Sorry. Totally started veering off-subject.

So! What have I learned while living in my car? I have learned that although living in one’s vehicle is frowned upon by society, a lot of people secretly wish they had the balls to do it. Even temp living like me. I’ll be looking for a place again in a couple months. God knows I couldn’t do this for a Texas summer. Nope! No way! But it is incredible the amount of financial freedom one can obtain while doing this. I have actually been able to save!!!! Like seriously save! I almost don’t even want to stop my car living, but unless I build some sort of AC, solar contraption (I know you would help, Bare!), it just isn’t feasible.

What else have I learned? It’s amazing how you start to see the things you own as crap. It’s just stuff. Take for instance my bedroom set which is currently sitting in storage. I love my four post, king sized bed! Don’t get me wrong! But dude! I am dreading moving that thing again along with the matching ginormous dresser and armour. Just dreading it! Ugh! I am to the point where I wish I had the skill to build my own, highly functional and easily movable furniture. I thought I had gotten rid of a ton of crap when I moved, but my storage unit tells another story. Which reminds me, I haven’t paid this month yet! Guess I will be doing that when I am done writing. Oops!

I have learned that hanging my towel up to dry on a bungee cord also serves as a great window blocker. The same goes for my other bungee with a blanket across my front seats from the two handle grips for the back seat. Also my clothing bar with my hair towel draped in the middle to dry would keep anyone from seeing my face through the back window. I’d take a pic, but it’s dark in here. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The other side is blocked by my drawers where I just stack stuff on top so you can’t see in on that side either. Oh yeah. I got this!

Putting part of my backseat up for an extra person to ride in my car is almost not worth the effort. My child was a witness to the hell that something so “simple” could turn into an absolute pain in the ass. If you need a ride in my car, I had better like you. A LOT!!!! I mean, you had better be on my good side, because after I finally get shit reorganized to get that seat to lock in the upright position, I am probably not going to like you for a little while. All I could do is recommend that you give me alone time after we are done hanging out. Just throwing that out there!

I have learned not to drink a lot of liquids before getting all cozy and snuggly in the back. Yeah. You probably think I’m kidding! I am being dead serious!!! That bathroom isn’t very far away, but it really really really sucks to climb to the front seat, remember the key card, put on those cold flip-flops and walk my impatient bladder into the building. Although it is kinda funny to scare the cleaning people from time to time. ๐Ÿ˜€ Speaking of this paragraph… Dammit!!!

Let’s see. What else have I learned? It is still unnerving to stay in my car at night. Even if I am parked right by the office building where I work, there is a security car and the occasional police car that drive through. I am waiting to hear a tap on the glass one night, but so far no one has bothered me. I have warned friends not to sneak up on my vehicle. I do keep loaded protection next to me when I sleep. They’re hollow points. Don’t knock on my window without calling me first. I also have a kukri and a couple of other sharp objects. I take my personal safety seriously! Another reason why I am not a fan of the midnight wake up call to go into the building.
I don’t need anyone seeing me leaving or entering my vehicle.

So there are a few things I have learned from my current living situation. Maybe they can help someone who might be thinking about this whole car living thing. I don’t know. Anyway, I felt like sharing this. If you have any questions or comments just let me know. I have added a contact form on my “About” page. If you’re lucky enough to know me better just message me on FB. And with that I am signing off. Have a good night and sweet dreams. ๐Ÿ™‚

Moving Along…

So the day of commercial love has come and gone! I have survived!!! Heart is still intact!!! Not like it was ever in any real danger or anything, but it does make a lot of stupid decisions!!!

I would also like to take this time to apologize for my last post. It was waaaaaaaaaaay more whiny than I intended. Life is not that bad, but the universe was frustrating me a bit, and I shared my emotional outburst with everyone like a broken-hearted, temper tantrum, flailing, screaming toddler who just wants that bright, shiny object at the checkout counter. Some of you, I know, truly enjoy living through my craziness. Maybe I make you feel sane? Others I am sure wonder why they still have me in their FB friends list. And still some of you are truly interested in reading about the randomness of my days. This, I believe, still helps with that whole sanity thing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It was a pretty good weekend though! The weather was beautiful!!! Yesterday I went to see Fifty Shades of Grey with Miss D! NOT as racy as the book, but damn!!! Definitely, uh, made the theater feel a bit hotter. Definitely! Aft wards we went out to The Reservoir for some grub. We split the smorgasbord, which is a sampler of basically their fried appetizers. After ordering it I ordered a skinny rita. This made me feel like the chick at the fast food place who orders a diet coke with their super sized order. It was Valentine’s Day! Totally worth it!!!!!!!! After all that, I went to River Legacy where my best friend and I hung out and played catch. Always fun! Although my arms were a tad spaghetti-ish from the gym that morning. It was awesome Chinese food for dinner and then back to my mom’s where we stayed up watching Aliens until 2am.

Today was an early day. Lunch at Central Market with family to celebrate my sister in-law’s baby shower. Then we all went to the gun show!!!! Woohoo!!!! Nothing says Valentine’s weekend like a family trip to the gun show!!! Can’t find my damn ammo anywhere, or if I do it’s super expensive! Argh!!!!

Anyway, need to get all cozied up in my nest and pass out! I have an assignment for you all! I was reminded of this yesterday, and it always makes me laugh! Go to YouTube and search for “fucking tea”. You’ll be happy you did! Should be the first video on the list! If you don’t think it’s funny, well then, we need to work on your sense of humor!!!

Good night and sweet dreams!

I Feel Like Writing A Bit…

So I am chillin in the car. Just thinking. My stomach is making random noises like something out of an aliens movie. The wind is blowing as a Texas cold front continues to drop our spring-like temps back into winter reality. Although a Texas winter is like spring to the North. I am not apologetic about this. I like not having to step outside into weather that hurts my face. It’s nice! No negative thirties here! Woohoo!!! So ๐Ÿ˜›

I have so much randomness going through my head. Especially since stupid Valentines Day is fast approaching. It’s stupid, because I’m single. Not that I am really in a place in my life to start a relationship, but the thought is always nice. Can’t really bust out with a, “Hey baby. Why don’t you come back to my place?” Hahaha!!! Yeah! Like guys living with their parents aren’t a turn off!!! But you know, just because I’m not relationship worthy at the moment doesn’t mean that I don’t like to be hit on. I mean, really? And I’m sorry, but creepy, stalker guys that live in windowless vans don’t count! Oh sure we could share car living tips, but I will not be seeing what that shag carpet looks like in the inside. Nope! I will not get in your van thinking I’m helping you as you load a couch into it and push me to the back. I refuse to be a dress!!!!!!

Seriously though. This is where my self confidence thinks, wtf? I don’t need anyone else’s approval, but then again I do. It’s flattering when people are nice and hold open a door or they smile or say or start s conversation. But it’s so rare for me anymore. Am I ugly? I don’t think I am. I mean, I’m very far from Miss Texas pretty, but I don’t look like that chick from A League Of Their Own either. You know the one!!! Am I intimidating? I don’t really see it. I’m always smiling and trying to keep my body language open, but obviously I am doing it all wrong. Maybe I come off as a but stand-offish? Maybe guys don’t like women who can take care of themselves? Maybe I’m too tall? Maybe I’m too fat? Maybe maybe maybe!!!!!!! It’s enough to drive somebody insane!!! Hit on me dammit!!!!! Say hi! Use a GD pick up line you got off a gum wrapper! Anything!!!!

I need sleep. I’ll just be dreaming of an adventure I’ll most likely go on alone…

What Happened???

I sit here at Hooters after having some much needed wings and a large, dark beer, and I decided to pull up my blog stats. Albeit there are still roughly six hours left in the day, but no one has read my blog. This saddens me in a most pathetic way. It’s ok. I don’t need the weird ego boost I get from finding out how many people have checked out my randomness, but it is nice. And yeah. I realize I have gone overboard on my calorie intake, but I still plan on going to the gym even after going for a run today. So ๐Ÿ˜›

Have a good evening! I know I am!!!

It’s Been A Whole Week!!!!!!!!

So it is Tuesday yet again. I kept meaning to get on here and write, but then laziness would take over, and I am prone to falling into the black hole of laziness. It seems the fatty tissue around my brain enjoys lounging as much as possible. Thank God for the part of my brain that enjoys randomness and excitement and adventure! Woohoo!!!

So anyway, back to the point of this whole bloggy thingy. The last week has been a roller coaster. Work has been absolutely insane! Not the good insane either! The overwhelming one!!! Just trying to deal with that one day at a time. My trainer is still trying to kill me. We did legs last Thursday. If you know me you know I’ll push myself. I might stop for a quick rest, but I will keep trudging along. My legs hurt so bad Friday evening and into Saturday morning that my trainer had me get the foam roller out. Rolling out my quads hurt so badly I was shaking. Then my trainer started rolling out my calves, and I just wanted to cry. Damn you lactic acid!! Damn yooooouuuuu!!!!!!

The weekend was spent at my mom’s. Madi and I were supposed to go to my step-sister in-law’s baby shower. Madi wasn’t doing so great, so instead of risking contaminating the mother to be, we just stayed at my mom’s. We watched John Wick! Is was so frickin good!!! Anyway, I got some archery practice in on Sunday.

So, work is already crazy this week. Just an overload of insanity. Loving my time at the gym! Missing my mini me! The car has been comfy and cozy although I have been sleeping like shit lately. Frustrating as usual when insomnia decides to start kicking in. I am soooooo sleeeeepyyyyyy. And on that note I am going to sign off and enjoy my little cocoon. Sweet dreams!

Hmmm, Tuesday…

Back in the car after being on hiatus since Friday. I was reminded this weekend that my mom’s couch is the most uncomfortable piece of furniture to sleep on. I also came to the realization that houses are like inescapable vortices for me. It’s so difficult to fall asleep in someone else’s house. Then I don’t sleep well. Then I have to trudge through tar pits to get moving in the morning. Maybe I dread a commute? Maybe my body wants to be lazy? Actually, I think that’s it. My brain is in agreement with my body to be lazy, and then it’s just a battle for that tiny voice in my head urging me to get going. Ugh! Damn brain and body working together for the good of nothing!!!!

So this weekend was stressful. Lots of drama! Lots of broken family drama! You know. Work has been crazy busy, pretty much nonstop. Workouts are kicking my butt in a very good way. Sleep has been kinda crappy. I haven’t been consuming enough water. All possible contributing factors to my getting so pissed off about someone that I just wanted to rearrange their face! It would probably help. Alright, that’s mean. But it’s kinda true… ๐Ÿ˜‰ But seriously! This person has no room to say anything about me but still needed to talk shit about me to people I know and show me their bitchy, controlling attitude in an attempt to show their displeasure in my proving them wrong on something. So frickin stupid! It’s not fucking high school!!! Whatever! Just another person I have to deal with constantly for only another 4 1/2 years. I can wait. ๐Ÿ™‚

Alright! Trainer almost killed me on Saturday! I was quite sore through yesterday. Even my butt was sore. It hurt to sit on it. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I dd skip my Sunday and Monday workouts though. Bad girl! I know! Told my trainer to remind me not to do that sort of thing again. I think I will be feeling that reminder through Thursday. Not sure if I mentioned it in the last post, but I lost 7 pounds in 23 days! I am happy with it! This month I will be attempting to exceed my goals and run a 10 min mile! Wish me luck!!!!!

The munchkin and I learned how to drive a tractor on Sunday! This weekend we’ll learn to do more. Woohoo!!! Ok. I am tired. Going to get some shut eye. Sweet dreams. I’ll write more this week. Ciao!
