Smokey skies
Tuesday. 7.7.15 9:04 pm
According to some website I clicked on, there's approximately 22 wildfires in the state of Washington and it's affecting the quality of the skies. There's been this weird haze over the city the past few days and it became quite obvious tonight. The sun looked like a blood moon. You were able to look straight at the sun without it really doing anything. There was no reason to squint and you didn't really get the trailing blind spots in your vision.

It's eerie and oddly beautiful at the same time. Same as when you see a fire raging away, or the aftermath of a fire that's long since been doused. Beauty can be seen in all aspects of life.

Tomorrow is Wednesday and I'm already looking forward to it being over. We're back to being only three people; we were fully staffed for all of 3 months, if that. The forth person we had quit suddenly. I mean, I understand that when you have family stuff going on it can take priority, but you could have at least given more notice. No hard feelings, but I'm not terribly bothered by the loss. It just means we have to work just a little bit harder for the next couple months.

My sunburn is healing at quite a rapid rate. I'm not used to having it heal this quickly; this lotion stuff is pretty darn awesome. My sister recommended another lotion to use once the burn is fully healed to help keep the tan longer so I'm gonna see if I can find it in stores sometime this week. I'm willing to pay the price to actually keep a tan rather than just going back to white.

I need to buy a bathing suit sometime soon ... I may have to make a trip out to Bellevue to see if I can't find one in stores. I don't really have the time to wait for it to come in the mail before I need it. If I can't find anything, then I guess I'll just have to make due. Hopefully I'll be able to find one that I like. I haven't owned one in probably about 6 years and it's been about that long, or even a little longer, since the last time I went swimming.

After talking with someone from my past and figuring out time to try to get together, I realized just how busy I am on the weekends for the rest of this month. I knew I had plans for each weekend for this month, but holy hell. I have a little bit of leeway time here and there each weekend {except next weekend} to work in last minute plans, but it's not something I'm used to. It's going to be August before I even have time to blink.

It's getting to be about that time for me to put more lotion on and call it a night. I'm aiming to be in bed before midnight tonight... unlike last night.

Until next time. . .

Lack of protection
Sunday. 7.5.15 8:54 am
As pale as I am, you'd think sunscreen would be on the top of my list of things to own. Nope. As pale as I am, you'd think that I'd remember to apply sunscreen religiously before going outside for any outing that will take longer than to get from inside, to my car and back inside. Nope.

I went for a 5.5 mile hike yesterday. It wasn't supposed to be that long of a hike, but we were making amazing time so we decided to extend the hike to this place where you're supposed to be able to see a river off in the distance... when the foliage isn't completely grown in. I took a bunch of pictures, some of which didn't come out very well, but that's not the point. I rarely look over the pictures that I take until later on, when I'm no longer in the place that I was taking pictures. I usually don't care if they come out good or not; I like living in the moment and capturing images for me to look back over to remember the moment.

Thursday night I met up with a friend for dinner. The food was not very good; I'm kind of wishing I'd gotten just a salad instead. I feel bad when I leave so much food behind so I took it home as leftovers and ended up just throwing it out because it kind of became mush. I'm not sure if/when I'll go back to that place, but I will definitely be ordering something different next time.

Friday I woke up super pissed off and panicky, something that hasn't happened to me in a long while. The source of my panic was ridiculous, as it usually is, but I knew I had to deal with it. I went to the gym and ran for two miles. I came home and was still quite agitated so I took a longer shower than normal. When I got out of the shower, I saw some texts that mellowed me out a bit, but then I just became more annoyed at myself for having acted out in the first place.

I needed to go out and run a couple errands so that's what I did after I'd calmed down a bit. The teller at the bank could tell something was wrong, but I didn't want to talk about it. I drove up and put gas in my car after the bank and then just came back home. Another friend of mine invited me out to the dog park/lake, but I knew that due to the mood I was in, I'd not have been very good company. Even with the dogs around me. I needed to be able to clear my head before I went out yesterday.

The hike definitely helped clear my head and it put me in a much better mood. The plans that I'd made with another friend of mine for today, I've backed out of, due to the sunburn. We were supposed to go laze about by/in the river, but I don't want to be out in the sun anymore than necessary. I feel bad about bailing, but the last time we all went to the river, it was not a good day for me and I'd rather not ever repeat that. It's not fair for anyone involved. One of these days I'll be mentally and physically ready for a fun day on the river.

So for now, I'm spending the day indoors. I will be going out once my laundry is done so that I can get some aloe vera. I've been using aquaphor for now; it's not ideal for sunburns, but it's good for dry skin so it's an okay alternative until I can get the stuff that's made for sunburns. I'll probably go to Target for this since I also need to buy toilet paper and body wash. I really should stop at the grocery store on the way home to buy food for work for the week, but I just don't feel like stopping at a bunch of places. If I was hanging out with someone indoors, then I'd definitely be fine going out. But since I'm not, I'll be making as few stops as possible before getting back home.

Time to put the clothes in the dryer.

Until next time. . .

Quickie lunch blog
Wednesday. 7.1.15 2:14 pm
I've come home for lunch two days in a row now. It's not going to be a regular thing, but it's nice knowing that I have the option to come home for lunch. I have a solid 30 minutes to hang out at home so it gives me time to relax or make food or whatever before I have to go back to work.

Yesterday I came home because I forgot to turn my fan on before I left. It gets really hot in here if there's no air circulation. Today, I forgot to shut my bathroom door, which seems to really help keep it at leave a few degrees cooler because it darkens that entire side of the room, and with the window in there open, it actually keeps that little room cooler as well.

Tomorrow I will likely stay at work for lunch.

After work today, I'm meeting up with a couple friends to drinks and it'll be bittersweet. One friend is leaving on Friday so it'll be the last chance we'll get to hang out with her. But, she's going home for a good reason so we're happy for her.

No real solid plans for the weekend, except for early Saturday morning. I may just go out of town again, but I'm not sure. Everyone I know is going out of town so why not me? The difference is that I'd be going alone, which everyone else is going with people.

Anywho, I should probably finish up my food and head back to work. You guys will just have to find out what I did next week.

Until then. . .

Homestretch
Monday. 6.29.15 6:15 pm
Tomorrow is the last day of the month of June, and just like every year for the past 20, I'm looking forward to the month being over. This month actually wasn't too bad for me this time around. It probably has something to do with the fact that I have a job I enjoy doing and people who will listen to me and give me advice and support. And make snarky comments when necessary. It seems like my sister and mom are doing well enough this time around as well. I guess we'll see how tomorrow goes. . . considering it's the actual day of.

It's not dropped below 80 in my room in about a week. There was a very brief reprieve yesterday because it was cloudy the entire day, but because it was still warm, it didn't cool off any. It didn't get any warmer, which was nice, but it stayed above 80 the whole day. It's awkward when you want to go inside to cool off, but really don't have that option.

It's only supposed to stay this way, or get just a smidge hotter the entire rest of the week. I have no idea when we're forecast to have rain again. I'd really like for it to be autumn again. It's my favorite time of year.

Anywho, I'm keeping this short because leaning on the computer is making my hands warmer than they should be so I'm gonna dive back in to Netflix while I sit in front of my giant ass tower fan, trying to keep cool.

Until next time. . .

Just like the last one, so many months ago, this title does have a relevance, but the only person who would understand what that means doesn't read my blog.

If you are reading it ... then ... hi! Hello there!

This entry is going to have nothing to do with you, so if you don't want to keep reading, that's fine. If you do, enjoy.

I'm still trying my damnedest to get to VA for my cousin's wedding. I want to meet up with my family members that I haven't seen in over a decade. There's only two people from my extended family whom I've seen in the last 10 years: my uncle who randomly decided to use my sister's wedding in 2010 as an excuse to go to Vegas and last year when my aunt was out here on business. That's it. I have until the 25th of July to RSVP. I also want to kind of make it a secret. Like, only tell my aunt and cousin that I'll be going. I want to show up and have everyone else surprised that I'm there. I've grown up quite a bit since most of them last saw me and although pictures on Facebook are a thing, I'm pretty much a carbon copy of my mother so it'll be fun seeing her siblings reactions to seeing me in person.

Tomorrow is midweek ... I really need to catch up on my work. I'm about two days behind now and I'd like to be caught up again. It's annoying that they can't just send things through every couple days. They have to wait and send it through in a big batch ... and then get people complaining because it's been a week or more and they still haven't received a call. Or, they have to wait another month before we actually have something available. Don't get me wrong, I still like my job; just the way they handle some things is frustrating.

Next week is supposed to get hot ... They're forecasting 90s for the whole week. Considering I came from Vegas, 90 shouldn't be a huge deal, but 90 is hot no matter what part of the country you live in. Especially if there's no air conditioning. Luckily, I seem to have come up with a weird method that seems to be keeping my place under 80. And the giant tower fan, I've not had to turn up above the first setting, so that's a plus. I even get chills with it pointed directly at me. Then I just sleep with my little fan on. I've even been keeping the fleece blankets on my bed. We'll see how well this works when the temps soar.

I really want to go out of town again this weekend ... I have to find things to do around the city that don't cost me anything. It's actually not hard to do; there's so many hidden, and not-so-hidden, gems around here that I can explore. The idea of getting out of town is just so much more appealing. It's my way of escaping every day life without the commitment of permanence.

I'm excited for tomorrow, actually. I have plans for lunch and I have plans after work. The rest of the week there's nothing exciting planned, but tomorrow is going to be good.

No idea when I'll write again.

Until then ...
