Just wanted a place to house this useful information and design ideas in our endeavors to redecorate our home:

I never actually got a chance to shamelessly promote the new forum that Kristen, Jenn, Mika, and I opened on the 1st of the year so I figured now is a good time as any and I also wanted to say that I am truly AMAZED at how many members we attracted.
The sense of community that we already have is OVERWHELMING. On the first day alone we had 53 members join and the second day 20 members signed up. We’re already at 4,987 total posts and I just cannot fathom it. And honestly you’d think that given the amount of the members that joined and the overall size of the community that people would feel a little alienated or lost but honestly I don’t think that’s the case at all. I think the introduction of the Houses of Veracity have really helped to unite people who might not otherwise have ever spoken or acknowledged another.
All in all, I am so totally blown by all the activity and the awesome members we’ve managed to gain so far and I expect that it’s going to be a great year ahead of us.
If you are interested in joining the awesomeness that is Veracity, I highly encourage you to! We are currently holding a giveaway in which the first 100 members to reach 100 posts will be entered into a drawing to win a Barnes and Noble Nook WiFi! Maybe it’s a bit much for the opening of a forum but honestly… the members are worth it.
Now the only problem we have is trying to top this giveaway in our future ones… maybe we’ll do something like an iPod– the only way to find out is to join!

I almost missed today’s post because I was so busy working on Ecstasy, but thankfully I remembered. I missed last night’s because I was cleaning the house and the time got a way from me. The only thing I have left to clean is our bedroom which I’m going to do tomorrow night and then Tuesday afternoon Robby will be back in my arms again which I am so grateful for. I have missed him so much, I cannot even put it into words. It’ll be good to have him home, us apart just isn’t right. :no:
I wrapped our first two presents today. I really want to get Robby something that he doesn’t know about, but I don’t know what that could be. He’s so difficult to shop for that it’s hard to surprise him. I wish the man would invest in a wish list or something. It would make my job as a wife much easier. Oh well, I’ll just have to think of something, I guess.
Hah, I’m excited for work tomorrow and not because well it’s work, but once it’s over then that means I’m only a few hours for seeing Robby again so it’s definitely a catch 22. I requested the last part of my shift off on Tuesday so I can spend that time with Robby. He’s going to be exhausted I’m sure so we’ll probably just cuddle and watch a movie or something. Aw just think about it gives me butterflies. I cannot wait.
All I know it’s been a crappy 8 days and I will be so glad to be in his arms again.

So last night I was really freaking buzzed when I posted, lol. I had almost forgotten I had until I checked it today. Oops. Those Tokyo Iced Teas are the devil, lol. I will have to make Robby show me how to make them before he leaves on Saturday. Ugh, I’m so sad about that. =( I keep telling him how I don’t want him to go, lol. It just blows, but meh I’ll manage. All I know is that means this week will fly by and next week will be slow as molasses because it’s the week he won’t be here. Gotta love how that works right?
Well, it’s official– school is kicking my ass. Well, class, rather. One class. I just don’t get it and it’s frustrating because it’s not clicking and I just want to pull my hair out and cry in frustration. This weekend I think I’m going to spend a few hours reading through the text and just trying to understand it. I hope it works because so far I am just a person with a big question mark over her head and I hate that because that is so not me. All of this just makes me want to throw my hands up and say I give up. =/
In other news I’m really, really taking to bead jewelry. I still have a lot to learn, but Tawni has been extremely helpful and I think with a lot more practice I’ll nail it then hopefully after that I can get back into bookbinding. I’m also really excited because Robby is letting me turn one of the spare bedrooms into a craft/photography studio so this means I can really focus on my arts. Ahh cannot wait. I really want to decorate the room to so I need to decide on a scheme! :giggle:
Well, I am off to try and work some more on Ecstasy. I feel like I’m so behind and have no time for anything. I am so looking forward to 2 weeks off in December. :nods:

Today has been a good day. Robby and I went and had Tippanyaki and also went to B&N so we could use the 25% off coupon that expired today. We had a good time and I discovered my love for Tokyo Iced Tea! So yummy.
I’m sad though because he leaves on Saturday and it breaks my heart. I don’t do well when he goes away. Seriously. This is why he could never been a truck driver or do anything that meant he’d be away from me for long periods of time. I don’t sleep well and usually end up with about 2-3 hours of sleep at most. Ugh, I’m so sad. The last time he’s been away from me was when we moved out here and that was the hardest thing ever. I hated it. Bleh, I am not looking forward to this– not at all. =(
So I started to work on crafting jewelry and I’m pleased with the results. I still have a lot to learn but a lot of people liked what I made so I’m hoping once I get good enough I’ll be able to sell them relatively easily but we’ll definitely have to see. I don’t think it should be too much of a problem though.
Alright I’m going to finished my drink and postwhore some more on Ecstasy– activity has been awesome these past few days!

Today was a weird day. Or maybe I just felt that way I don’t know. It was just a strange day. I don’t think going to bed at 4:30 in the morning and then waking up at 10:00am helped, but I did managed to power nap for an hour so that helped some. We’ll see what time I end up crashing today. Hopefully I’ll get sleepy around 1ish, but I doubt it. :sigh:
It was a pretty mellow day today. I didn’t do much. Work was offering voluntary time off, so I took it because I’m trying to get as many days of peace before the holiday season kicks in full force. So not looking forward to that at all. Hopefully it’s over soon. At least I can cross my fingers and hope, heh. I’ve become quite the addict of Farmville. It’s terrible because I’ve been avoiding it for so long, but got sucked in somehow. Oh well. At least it’s one more thing to pass the time!
Oh my beads should arrive tomorrow which means I can focus on working on trying to get better at the jewelry making. It’s not as easy as it looks– especially when you have to make loops! Those are the hardest, but I am determined to be successful at it! I also plan on taking up baking when the New Year starts. I really want to get into it and start making my own stuff so that will be one of my resolutions I suppose. I think it will be a good one. :nods:
Robby graduates from school next year and it seems like it’s taking forever. Lol. Maybe that’s because baby fever has hit me again and I want my own little bundle of joy. Ugh, I hate when I get like this, it’s terrible. Especially since I have to wait, which sucks, but I do understand the logic as to why I should. It doesn’t make it any easier though. =( Oh well, that’s life. Alright, I think I’m going to watch V since I keep forgetting to set the damn Tivo to record it.
