Below is a picture of Grants latest painting that he just made that frame for. He made a frame for my painting too but I didn't get a picture of that yet.
Below is Grant just home from work. Looking dirty!
To do list for tomorrow
- Start new drawing
- work out (which will involve walking to the store and getting veggies I want) we can't afford to do actual large shopping trip and we have plenty of can food.
- try to locate printer or copy place
- check out back house
- go to dinner at Grant's Dad's house
oh yeah and Grant got us this huge mirror from a place he is working at. I thought it would be like a large framed mirror so I said yeah bring it home, turns out it is a large mirror that should be hanging in a dance studio, its enormous. Anyways so it is in the garage but if we get our own place it can hang it on a wall and fool everyone into thinking we live in a large area hhahahha.

Do you ever feel weird? (this will be a run on sentence) Weird, like, you are tired but can't sleep because you just woke up and you feel like you need to run or jump in place but just ate so if you do that you might throw up and like your going to cry but really aren't sad about anything more like you could scream and every time you do something you have 5 people making comments about it so you want to just hide alone somewhere but then feel as though you should be doing something productive? I feel like I am losing my mind! Awwwwwwwwwwww
I am also having all these weird dreams! I had a dream last night that I was in Vegas with Kelly and 5 of her friends and Grant and we were all sitting at this table and she says that she is getting married and that she wants me to be a brides maid and that her wedding will be this year in Hawaii but she is not sure when and I just sat there and silently freaked out cause I don't have the money to go do any of that stuff what does that dream mean?
Also something that is weird is yesterday I thought of 2 of my friends that I rarely talk to and that very night I got an e-mail from both of them!
Write me a comment and let me know if you ever feel like I do or if you would like to interpret my dream?
After I finished my drawings we had a few margaritas and I had made a really good pizza for lunch so we warmed that up and had the rest for dinner. yum yum
Ok time for bed.

This morning I drove out to Mel's and got my hair cut or I should say trimmed because I am trying to grow it out. I would guess to the untrained eye it probably looks exactly the same but I can tell its been trimmed and it looks and feels great! I have decided that when this shampoo and rinse that I am using runs out that I need to invest in better products. When I was home I loved the way my hair felt cause we were using better products and the shampoo I am using here makes my hair feel greasy.
On a side note I called my mom on skype and she wasn't there which is abnormal for a week day, so I called her cell phone and guess where she was? At her friends house in OC and is going to have to stay the night because they had 2 margaritas for 5 dollars each and they were so strong and good that she said she can't drive home! I am jealous, sounds like a really good time!
Here is Ruby again, Looking as cute as ever!
PS The picture uploaded sideways and I turned it the right way and it uploaded wrong again!
SO Ruby looks like she is trying to stand or something.
And here is my hair cut or trim.

After I dropped him off I came home and did the 30 day shred work out, worked on a painting, had lunch, then visited Sybilla and Rebecca.
Sybilla is so much bigger and older it is hard to believe. I know it has only been three months but she is like a big kid now. She talks and understands what your saying, but thankfully she still likes to dance and go through purses. It was really good seeing her and getting to catch up.
Here she is talking on my brush like its a phone, so cute!

Besides the painting I also called 2 places for jobs and the first one the lady repeated my phone number wrong and when I repeated it again the right way she said ok, so who knows if I will get a call back from that. The second place I called said they were closed today and to call back tomorrow but on further investigation I realized that they are about 25 min away from here and I don't have a car. Oh well, I want a job but those two weren't anything special. I'd rather wait and look for a job that I really really want and like rather then take some crap job just to make minimum wage and have to quit cause I don't like it. And as my history shows if I don't like a job I am immediately looking for another one.
Tomorrow I draw and visit Sybilla ! yay!

After our visit Grant and I went by an art store where I got some paper I needed and he got some expensive paint, if my calculations are right he should charge thousands for each painting he does. When we got home I put all my clothes that were in my suitcase still into one set of drawers that were given to us by one of Grants friends.
Which brings me to yesterday where we spent the majority of the day driving around looking for drawers, I don't think Grant was happy about the drawer search especially when we couldn't find anything. Oh well my answer to that is too bad, I can't live with piles of clothes surrounding me I will go crazy. Later last night we ended up going to a friends house to watch the Rugby game and I fell asleep on the couch while trying to watch and slept through the whole thing! How Rude. I really don't think I am adjusted to the time yet, and when we got home I got really home sick and started crying. I think it is going to take a while for me to get adjusted to living with someone and to being away from my family and friends.
How cute is Ruby?
Here she is taking her nap

I walked up to the Warehouse. It takes about 30 min to get there and about 30 min back. There are a few hills involved, but I am counting this as my exercise today. At the store I bought some plastic hooks and some wash cloths. I saw a bunch of stuff I want but it would have been impossible to carry it all. When I got home I hung the hooks and continued to organize stuff. It is better but not really good. Well I better start on my art because before I know it I will be making spaghetti
Anyways last night for dinner Grant made us fajitas and although they were really spicy they were also delicious. Yesterday I did everything on my list of stuff to do; I walked up the street to donate some of my clothes to the good will, I started a painting (that I intend to finish today), I organized a few more things in our room, and I applied for a few jobs on the Internet.
This morning so far I have talked to my mom, cleaned the bathroom sink and kitchen sink, and I am now going to walk up to the Warehouse (similar to a target). The one thing I need to keep in mind while shopping is only buy what you can carry because I am walking lol! Imagine if I forgot that and bought drawers hahahha.

After I unpacked a few things we went to the grocery store and bought some food for the week and it came out to 230 dollars! For one week of food, it is really so super expensive here to eat.
That night Grant asked me to make some salsa because we were having a fiesta in my honor. The salsa turned out great! It was really cute Grant had the room all clean when I got here and the bar down stairs was decorated for the party.
My goal for today is to start on a painting that I have been planning on doing, go for a walk, and look for jobs on the Internet!
