beeswax. people need to mind their own.

WARNING this is a venting post

so, as per usual, it's drama central at the schena household. i guess that's inevitable when you live with three other women (4 when morgan's home).

as previously mentioned, relationship dramas abound. unfortunately, my mother likes to take small things and twist them around into very large insane dramatic tragedies. my sister and i told my mother about the guys we met when we were out drinking last week (because, as is accustomed when drinking, members of the opposite sex like to flirt, purchase drinks, etc. it makes for fun times) and one guy in particular took a shine to my sister (who tried to hook him up with me, which failed of course) and he bought us some drinks, schmoozed, nothing unusual. my sister was a bit ecstatic about the attention. it happens regularly at the bar, but i guess when out with girlfriends, these things are more fun and celebrated. this past weekend my sister also happened to break up with her bf of 3 years.. due to MANY reasons.. mainly the fact that she's graduating, not sure where her life is going, and is not ready for marriage and the like.. she just wants a break.. fully understandable. of course my mom makes it out like she wants this guy from the bar and is sex crazed or something he's sex crazed or something along those lines (which if you knew my sister, you'd know that's not true) and is somehow convinced that my sister broke up with her bf of 3 years.. who she still deeply cares about, to specifically go out with this guy she doesn't even know.

and of course my mom went on and on to my sister's now ex about this 'situation' she's created which made me mad (it's no one's business but my sister's.. she should not be butting in, it's one thing to console him and listen but another to make shit up and exaggerate (which my mom happens to be an expert at) so i said as much and called my sister to giver her a head's up that her now ex is going to probably call and probably be severely upset.. and of course.. drama crying and craziness ensue and i am left to mediate. oh fun. i think i really got myself into a mess on this one.

glad i'm off to delaware this weekend! if i'm still alive that is..

also. i am off to giant to purchase healthy foods such as vegetables and fruits. i'm trying to make myself healthier and more physically fit. i'm thinking maybe if i start my new year's resolution before new year's i might keep it up a little better?? maybe? we'll see. i also have a $10 off purchase coupon for giant. i love coupons.


feliz navidad.. and all that jazz

happy holidays everyone! unfortunately, quite a few people are having unhappy holidays. i find a lot of people are breaking up this time of year. it’s rather distressing. being ridiculously single, i’ve never experienced a breakup, but from all the crying i’ve witnessed, i’m sure they’re no picnic. these are the times i'm glad i don’t have a significant other. makes life SO much simpler!

so obviously, i’ve jumped the blogspot bandwagon. i actually joined back in october, but never actually got around to putting anything substantial in here (hence the last post). i more than likely will not put anything substantial in here. maybe i’ll just vent. or tell lame jokes. or recount pointless observations. who knows.

anywho. so far i am thoroughly enjoying the christmas season! my dad is home and sunday we all went to get the tree.. all 6 of us. it was quite the adventure! then i helped my dad get the lights around it. that was a sight. i’d have to say this year's tree is perfection. maybe i’ll get a picture of it and put it on. it's the best smelling tree we’ve ever had. yesterday i helped my dad wrap gifts for my mom. it’s cute. he gets so excited about the gifts he buys. this year he bought her a whole bunch of smaller gifts.. one gift was a regular bottle of oil of olay lotion you’d get at the grocery store. he was SO excited about it. he thought it was the coolest thing ever. it made me chuckle. then he went to get a box to wrap it in and brought out this beat up nasty box that had holes in it and was all chewed up. i tried to explain that that wouldn’t work. he was stubborn, but in the end and made him go find a shoebox. it was cute.

my parents are getting along SOOO well! usually by this time they’re at each other’s throats, but this year they’re getting along so wonderfully! every so often they’ll just randomly hug each other, like while they’re in the middle of talking about bills. again, it’s cute.

my dad will be going to nebraska to work for a year starting in january. my boss already approved me taking a week off this summer to visit him. he’ll be in omaha, so i may be swinging by kansas city to say hi. my dad says it’s not all that far away.

i'm going to go read for a bit, or draw, or knit, make some hot chocolate with a candycane… who knows

it’s raining outside and it sounds wonderful.
