10 Days!

21 Jul

It seems like forever since I posted………. because it has been. Not that I haven’t been doing anything . Friday the 16th my husband and I went to a concert. We went to Jiffy Lube Live – I didn’t name it, to see Pepper, Offspring, and 311 !! It was awesome!  Pepper is a relatively new band ( you know only been around a few years) but not many people have heard of them, they’re kind of like Sublime lite, very enjoyable. After Pepper played we were standing outside talking to my friend Jordan when they walked by, we got them to sign a shirt, and our ticket stubs and we even got pics, but I look disgusting in them so they’re not going up! Mike wasn’t impressed with Offspring initially, he thought they were just older and going to be no fun ( he’s young  and I’m not, so naturally I was excited). But they won him over by the end. They did a great job.  

After Offspring came 311!! We’ve seen them in concert 5 times, even went to see them twice on our honeymoon, we’re not really as crazy at that sounds, it’s a long story. As always they were amazing. We were in the pit, it was packed and gross and although I took a dozen pics not a single one turned out well, so here are some bad pics: 

Doesn’t Nick look crazy in this pic?

We had a great time despite almost being crushed to death by the crowd. We spent a small fortune on shirts and drinks, but we had expected that. We won’t be doing anything like this anytime soon, so it was alright I suppose.

In a few weeks my husband is going to be leaving. He’s moving to the SF bay area to go to school. His semester begins Aug 18th.  We can’t afford to all move out there, so I’ll be staying in VA with my fam. The plan is that Mike and my little brother will move out there now and after 6 months will have a job and have found a suitable place for us to live so that Cali and I can join him. It’s going to be tough, the longest we’ve been separated since we started dating was 4 days, six months is going to be tough. I’m an Air Force brat, so I know about daddy’s going away for work/school. I know I’m not going to die but I’ve still been just living life like everything is normal. Also, I’ve been trying to find them a place to live using Craig’s list. But ( I don’t REALLY blame them) most people won’t rent to somebody they’ve never met. So it’s been difficult, they may just have to go out there and find a place which will suck.
    Also, in order to get our bills paid, I’m probably going to have to get a job. I have been unsuccessful in coming up with an at home business. I’ve been working on transcribing my father’s thesis that he wrote when I was a child. He’s hoping to add to it and maybe publish it. It’s already been referenced by anybody writing seriously on the subject of The Georgia Infantry during the civil war( so like 10 times hehe). As of right now though, at a rate of .50 a page I’m anticipating making about $53. A nice bump but not going to pay the bills.
   My brother is also writing a book and I’ve been working with him as an editor and all around advice giver. He’s writing a novel taking place in Germany during WW2. My brother tends to get bogged down in details where he doesn’t need them and neglecting them when they’re necessary, but try telling an author something like that everyday ” shrug*.
   So anyway, I’m in search of a job for the next 6 months. One thing I’m not looking forward to is the possibility of daycare……… THAT makes me want to cry. Maybe I’ll get a night job and never sleep.
   My blog is about creating huh? Well, I have made a few little skirts for my baby girl, however theyre dirty right now so once theyre out of the washing machine I’ll throw them on her and post some pics for your viewing enjoyment.

    😦 The thought of daycare would make me want to cry too. I’m sorry. But moving to the Bay Area in six months? Cool!

      Yeah, I’ve been trying to figure out what I can do at home to make some extra money……….but I’m not sure. I may just work a graveyard shift and have my parents mind her while they all sleep. And YES!! I’m so excited about moving back to the Bay Area! I miss it terribly and now I “know” some creative types out there it’ll be a blast!
