speaking of flowers, there is this one bush that thrives here, and we need two of them, and they are on sale this week! yeah! they are also plants that chewy will go to the bathroom on. since i'm trying to get him to go potties at home, this would work all around. there are 2 dead bushes in front. i don't really care about them, but in the lease it says we are responsible for the landscaping. we want to replace them with these flower bushes. the name escapes me.
it was chilly this morning! i loved it! we all know i love the summer, that's why i came here, but since i found all my tights and sweaters and boots and leggings i've been longing for fall. of course, this soon after summer, anything below 75 is chilly. but it was so nice. i had to put on pants to go outside and smoke. brilliant! this weekend i'll clean out a drawer for winter stuff and pull to the front of the closet the stuff that goes with the tights. for the first time in a decade, i am excited about what i am going to wear and interested in the way i look. this is a HUGE step for me.
another HUGE step is that i bathe regularly and keep my legs and underarms shaved. and i brush my teeth. all these basic things go out the window when you're psychotic. they don't matter, they just tether you to the earth. that isn't where your brain wants to be. but anyway . . .
i'm having generic (which are better than the brand, IMO) lucky charms for lunch. doc offered me Robertos . . . mmm, taquitos with guacamole and cheese . . . but i declined. if he gets me the cereal, it will cost about the same and last me a whole lot longer. we eat too much junk food. it's too easy, and it really sucks up your money. i'd rather be back at the one pizza per week place we were in the apartment. and with that, i've been cooking for myself more. i made melted extra sharp cheddar on roasted garlic Triscuits this morning, but i got sick. doc is also getting me cola to settle my stomach.
i think we've got all the basics installed. i somehow lost all my fonts, nothing to do with the recovery, i thought i burned them, but i burned the wrong folder, teach me to check my work from now on. so i've spent a lot of time at fontfreak.com today collecting new fonts. actually, my taste in fonts has changed. so this is a good thing. and since i had collected all the fonts i had from font freak, so i'm getting them back as i peruse the site. i'm on page D-4 right now. i hope to get through M by tonight when doc goes to work.
i got an error in a DLL file when i installed something last night, and freaked out. all i could find on it on the web were costly programs to fix ALL your problems, god knows what they would do to the computer. so i restarted, tried to open the program, and everything was fine. whatever. everything else installed seamlessly.
*burp* - yeah, i don't feel good in the tummy. i took some tums, but to no avail. i stopped drinking coffee so as not to encourage the oogy stomach. now it's cola and cereal. another reason i didn't want taquitos, i don't know that my stomach could take it. the meat is spicy and the guac is rich.
so i think this hair straightening is going to stick to my routine. i washed my hair today (i only wash it once a week because it is so dry), and conditioned it well, but it still looked like straw when it dried. so i straightened it so i could put healing oils in it more easily. long hair is in for the first time in a long time, and i find my length lacking. when it's straight, it's two inches longer than when it's curly. not physically, of course, but the way it hangs.
okay, then. i just brushed the touch pad and the text got tiny. i think i'm going to close this out before my eyes start to bleed. i have no idea how to undo this. so i'll just close the program and hope for the best.
