So this is my first blog at my new computer station, yay!
I recently came into a little bit of money, enough that I was able to catch up on all our bills and eliminate a couple personal loans. It has also afforded me the opportunity to get a new vehicle – a sexy, black, 2006 Ford Escape (pronounced Escapé like Dori in Finding Nemo) – and this time it will be completely paid for by me, so no worries of it being repossessed or not being able to afford the monthly payments.
Not only was I able to catch up on all necessary bills and expenditures but I was also able to buy a few things on my wishlist that I just haven’t been able to spend money on when it was sorely needed for other things. I got myself a pair of Doc Marten’s – a nice, soft leather so I don’t have to work them in. Sean helped me put mink oil on them so they’re waterproof. They look good. I also bought this amazing red and black shirt, it has pleather accents and is very edgy looking. I thought to myself, “this needs pleather pants” and one day I decided to go to Value Village (a thrift store) and voila! There was a pair of pleather skinny pants IN MY SIZE!!! I wore that outfit yesterday and, with my new hairdo, I must admit I was HOT! I got some more clothes, nothing too special but definitely needed, and some more from Value Village so I didn’t blow my whole lot on clothes.
One thing I did buy that Sean shakes his head over is a brand new Iphone 6s. Brand new as in not used, lol. This is significant because all my phones have been used. It turns out I’m an Apple girl and I keep trying Android phones but they just don’t please me as much as an iPhone does… and let me tell you this 6s is AMAZING. I love it. Totally worth the money.
I also completed my fancy dinner outfit. We’re going to a fancy restaurant in a couple weeks and I saw this red Marilyn Monroe-type dress that I fell in love with. I tried it on – turns out it fits! So I bought it. I also got a jacket to go with it and a beautiful pair of red/black shoes and some dark black opaque stockings. I’m going to look amazing… just saying. 🙂
Not only did I buy a ton of stuff for me (most on sale or clearance!) I was able to help get a couple extras for Sean and Zoey. I helped Sean out by ordering his microphone and dictation software. I can hear him upstairs talking to his computer and it’s awesome. This software listens and learns his speech patterns and virtually eliminates the need for a keyboard/mouse. This is good as he has struggled with typing (two fingers as opposed to my 90+ WPM) and reaching for the mouse makes his back hurt.
So, further to my last post about having my own office space in the basement, I went ahead and bought a new computer desk. It is beautiful. It has a keyboard tray that fits the mouse beside it (bonus!!!), a work area, a raised monitor area and two raised accessory shelves which I’m using as speaker shelves. I love my little corner. I know this is a rambling, pointless post but I wanted to write something at my new desk. 🙂
Oh well, it’s after 2 am and I should work on getting sleepy again. Good night, WordPress world.
