Hi everyone! I want to assure you that no, I am not dead! (Kidding. Bad joke.) Honestly, I feel like nothing I say is going to be enough right now. I haven't blogged in a MONTH. I feel like I am letting everyone, myself included, down. A lot has happened. Since I feel like I know a lot of you, and I feel like a lot of you somewhat care, I don't mind sharing personal stuff here. Even if I don't do it often. I want you to know that is the reason I am sharing, not because I feel like I owe you an explanation. So, here goes.
First of all, you all know that my phone screen pretty much shattered at the beginning of the month. I posted my blog sale, which was very successful, so I would be able to replace it... and I haven't. I had to have a lot of things done with that money, so my screen is still cracked. Bills had to be paid that my pay check didn't cover, I have dental bills out the ass.... Trust me, I didn't get ANYTHING fun with that money! Again, I want to thank everyone SO much for helping me out! I took the sale down since I wasn't really advertising it anymore... and I didn't feel like I wanted to deal with it anymore. But, I will probably put a new one up soon. Besides wrapping everything up, it was actually a lot of fun! So, we'll see what happens there. :)
Also, my internet was down for almost a week (again.) and in that time my power cord stopped working and I had to get a new one sent to me. My Apple products gave me hell there for awhile!
Dental bills. Yes. Big ones! I was so excited earlier in the year when I qualified for dental insurance. I know it sounds lame, but my entire life I have been very susceptible to cavities and what not. I just didn't get good teeth genes. Well, my excitement didn't last long. As good as my insurance is, it doesn't even begin to cover the train wreck condition my mouth is in. Thanks to my wisdom teeth and one bastard of a tooth that broke a long time ago. This is also where the bulk of my issues have come from this month. My wisdom teeth are AWFUL. Without going into details, I get them pulled in three weeks and it won't be pretty :/
Since going to the dentist to find all this lovely information out (and getting a good cleaning....at least they look good!), my impacted molars have been swollen. We are going on a month now. They are causing all kinds of problems. My jaw is swollen and in pain, my neck is tender, all the rest of my teeth hurt, my sinuses..... Everything neck up hurts. I'm also having bouts of lightheadedness from it. Needless to say, I can't WAIT for them to come out! Bring it on! In fact, I'm upset there isn't an appointment sooner.
On top of all that, I'm working more. Some Saturdays I'm working 16 hour days. It's summer, so it means I'm working at the racetrack, and doing other little seasonal things. Some nights, I just don't feel like being online, or writing, or doing my nails or anything.
So, between all of that and allergies, I'm sleeping WAY too much. So, I have put Facebook groups, my Facebook page and my blog on hold. I am starting to feel a little bit better, and I'm hoping to be back on schedule soon. I don't have a ton of new content, but I still have vault pictures, some collections and other things that I've put on hold that will be shown soon.
Finally, my trip to NYC has had to have been postponed. I am very, very disappointed! I had planned on using some of the money for that trip for giveaway prizes. Sadly, since I don't have that money for the trip... I won't have money to buy for a giveaway prizes. I had something awesome planned, so I'm pretty upset. I'll have to do a 1.5 yr giveaway or something. lol
Now, I was going to put some teaser pictures in here... but my iPhone won't send them to me! I guess I have to change my email settings on it. LOL I still haven't figured it out completely :)
Enough talking! I feel like I'm giving you every excuse in the book! I am going to go try out some of my new neons (I haven't bought in a month and went a little crazy today...) and think of a new post for Monday! Thanks to everyone who still checks in on a regular basis and thanks to my new followers! Love you all, and will try so much harder!
Thanks for reading!
