Did you hallow out the middle of the log to make it easier to move or does it not turn out to be that heavy? I think that would be perfect idea for my dad and my inlaws, but I would want to make sure they would lift it and move it about as they pleased.

It's so cute for a log/chair! I wish I had my own yard to do this with lol.

So I had this gloss black wood grain frame, and I felt it looked a bit *bland*, so I thought I'd try painting it.


Stripes are fun <3


And silly me, I forgot a basic rule of painting a wood surface... sand any gloss coat off first, and this is what happened.

Reminded me of latex paint...

I decided to scrap it all off and go in a whole different direction.

Ribbon and paint maker! I did the heart on top since it holds a picture of my hubby and me <3

I've applied for Wally-World like... 6 times. I can't pass their application test/survey... x.x;;; I answer one question and it says I failed. *I think I'm on their black list or something, lol, they see my name and they deny me instantly.*

I've never been able to pass that test either. 

I work over nights at target and am always tired so I took a week off and I feel much better

Working nights makes you more tired, I've discovered. Especially if you live with people who don't understand that since you work nights, you need sleep. My grandmother wakes up at 5am and starts doing the dishes 'restaurant style' (making as much as noise as possible, almost sounding as if she's breaking them.) then she'll start vacuuming and slamming doors. Yeah, trying to sleep through that is hard when all the rooms are right next to the kitchen.

Sad sounds like when i worked as a temp cashier at wally world D: the pay was good, but closing was horrible, opening was worse, the customers were...interesting, and my bosses never seemed to understand that my life did not revolve around their needs :/

anywho! i'm glad that you're taking a little break Smiley enjoy it because you deserve it!

Yeah, the manager we used to have would call me and tell me, 'Someone called in, so we need you to come in and cover.' and when I'd say no (they ever tried calling me in on my birthday. Fun.) he would threaten my job... luck for me he was moved to a different store and the boss we have now calls and asks and if I say no he goes, 'It's cool, there is someone else we can call.'

I've applied for Wally-World like... 6 times. I can't pass their application test/survey... x.x;;; I answer one question and it says I failed. *I think I'm on their black list or something, lol, they see my name and they deny me instantly.*

I'm going on a 4 day vacation to my friend who I haven't seen in about a year, so hopefully a nice vacation will help.

I would like less hours, but I can't afford it. I've applied almost everywhere else around, and no one ever calls back. When I call them to see if they looked over the applications, they just tell me that the manager isn't there, when I ask for a better time to call, one of the employees just goes, 'I don't know.' and basically hangs up on me.

I've confronted my bosses(I have 4 of them.) and they all told me, 'You have to be *scheduled* for 32 hours a week, consecutively for 5 weeks.' but when they have me working closing hours, we stay past closing till we're done putting up returns(abandons, put backs, etc.) and clean up the store (aka 'zone), so a lot of the times we don't leave till 11pm, and we close at 9pm. Add those extra hours to a *scheduled* 25 hour week, 5-6 day week, you have 32-40+ hour week... when I explained this to them, they said, 'Sorry, rules are rules.' so yeah....  Lips sealed

I decorated some boxes for a while, but I've ran out of them and right now I'm broke, so now I'm planning on finding stuff around the house to fix up or decorate.

Also, I think living with my hubby at my grandmothers house, and having to sleep on the couch isn't helping. But we have no where else to go right now... which sucks. But I'm going to get a trust fund check(small one, but it'll most def. help.), and we'll use it to move to his parents house in Louisville, so we'll have our own room, finally!

So I work a 32-40+ hour a week part time job (I know, thats basically wrong and shouldn't happen, but it does, and at some of your favorite craft store.) and when I get home I'm totally drained. Lately I have lost *all* of my inspiration and energy to do anything.

Anyone know anything I can do to get me out of this slump? It's almost makes me depressed.

I like to dip my fries in my chocolate shake.

omg me too lol

People find it weird, but I love my hot dogs with mayo, chili, ketchup, cheese, and onions... o.x why they find it weird, not sure.

My mom puts weird stuff on food all the time. On her paste she puts cottage cheese... yeah, like spaghetti, all over it. gross much?
