yup. the boyfriend of six whole years proposed to me.
it’s not like i forced him, or anything. ::cough, cough::
the big day is scheduled for 10/6/12…not too far off in the near future.
you’d think i’d be on top of things since i’ve practically planned my wedding already.
but in truth, i’m nowhere close.
i have ideas…just ideas.
nothing more. and so far, i’m stressed.
<SURPRISE! it’s not easy to plan a wedding, rahtard.>
i have the maternal figure in my ear almost every week telling me, “don’t be cheap.”
i have the fiance’ (i’m still getting used to this terminology) telling me to chill and accept everyone’s opinions.
and i am fighting with myself bc i shouldn’t be so damn selfish, especially since i don’t have anything accomplished but a lavish idea.
gah. i was dreaming of this day for the last three years.
what the hell have i gotten myself into??
i’m back, bitches.
and with nothing interesting to share.
i’ve been out and about and friends that i haven’t seen for some time come and ask me, “so, what’s new?”
after staring awkwardly at them for about 15 seconds, i just shrug and say something along the lines of, “mhm, nothing really.”
sure, shit has changed. we moved. i don’t see my best friend every day. (i cry about this sometimes.) my little man is still experiencing some trouble in school. the boyfriend and i have been together for, shit…almost six years next month. but really, this is just what happens in the course of a life.
nothing NEW and EXCITING has happened.
everyday is just a routine. and i’m not upset about it.
i’m happy just taking every day as it comes.
my ridiculous soap opera of a life has ended and we’re just coasting on.
so…this was an interesting highlight in the life of a mad hatter.
i guess i just wanted the internet to know i’m still out here.
if and when something interesting is worth sharing, i’ll be back.
hold your breath for that moment.
…i’ve heard blue/grey is a good look this season.
zombies are the new vampire.
eh…what the hell…

i’m a mother. a proud, young, poor mother. and i love my little man.
i should update my “about me” section as it states i have a five-year-old mr. smarty pants. well, he’s now seven. and he’s still a little hell-raiser. but he’s the best damn thing that has EVER happened to me.
we’ve had our bad moments: macaroni and cheese for dinner three times a week; watching the same dvd of The Land Before Time bc mom can’t afford Cartoon Network; moving from place to place; a million babysitters; lots of No’s when it’s just time for bed!
BUT of course, we’ve had some great memories, too: tickle parties; Independence Day festivals; silly and inappropriate sounds/smells; singing and dancing to loud music; kisses and hugs.
so, with respect in continuing this ::cough:: 30-day challenge, i present to you the biggest impact of my life: Matthew.
he’s a catch. smart and witty. plus he’s got an attitude. not sure where he gets it from, but whatevs. he’s my pride and joy.
who thought i was going to keep up with a blog on a daily, weekly, monthly basis?
i sure didn’t put much faith in myself.
hell, i don’t feed my dog regularly. (it’s because i hate him.)
anyway, i’ve had a lot of shit happen recently and it’s been difficult to juggle life with all these extra responsibilities. i barely get out of bed with enough time to get ready for the day, so having additional obligations really puts a damper on things.
for now, the issue has pretty much resolved itself. (yes, i’m being ambiguous about the subject bc it’s a downer type of story. i can’t afford the retail therapy now, so you’re just going to have to deal.) therefore, my only plan to get over this mess is to get shit-faced ASAP. i’ve thought long enough about it to count on my dear friends of the alcoholic persuasion to get me through these dog-days.
i figure that if i get ridiculously drunk, i might think of some topic that could be interesting and keep my fingers busy on the keyboard.
(i’m really reaching here, huh? i barely keep my current audience ::insert cricket chirping here:: entertained.)
obviously, i sucked at trying the 30-day post. pssh. whatevs. i can’t be told what to do. i must say, i warned ya! and who wants to keep seeing stupid pictures or read worthless background stories of my life? i’ve lived it and it’s not as glamorous as it should have been. i’m boring. and i’ve hit a mental road block.
maybe i just want to dance my cares away. leave my worries for another day. let the music play. (okay, i’m getting carried away with the Fraggle Rock theme song by this point.)
i think i will just drink until i puke on my boyfriend. bc i love him, duh.
i’ll be back. possibly with something witty or disgusting to share.
smell ya later.
