Ugh, can't keep up with this thing!
Thanksgiving was ok. We ate at Pop-pop's this year. Mom already cooked most of it at home. She couldn't keep it hot after we got there for some reason. The food was good though. I sat and listened to Dad and Mark tell funny driving and work stories. I always forget that they were buddies before Dad met Ma. (Ma and Mark are sibs). It all would've been better if Sara hadn't invited shithead. I guess she thought that since we weren't at home, I wouldn't mind him being around. Wrong! Gawd he is so fucking fake! I can't stand him. I swear if she brings him down here on christmas again I'm going to shove the christmas tree down her throat. Ornaments and all! The worst part is that I've TOLD HER that I don't want to see him on the holidays. Hell, I don't want to him ever. She brought him down last Thanksgiving, christmas AND easter. Even though she KNEW I didn't want him to be here. I ate dinner and spent most of those holidays in my bedroom instead of with my family.
Last Saturday I went shopping with Ma and Sara. First we went to Bare Esentials. It's the only place where I can find bras in my size. I'd been in desperate need of a new bra for a while, bluh. I got two and apperently I've gone up a cup size, then again I don't really think the last one fit perfectly, it was good enough. I was really happy to see they had bras in cute designs and colors in my size. Last time all I remember was just the basic white, black and nude colors. And they fit perfectly! I don't think I've ever had a bra fit this well. I can sit down without my boobs resting on my stomach now! And best of all, no more back fat rolls XD! I know it all sounds a bit silly. But having these problems solved makes me feel a bit more confident.
After that we went to a place called The Christmas Shop (or was it The Christmas Tree Shop?). They sell tons of christmas stuff. Like decorations, gift wrapping and stuff people usually need during the holidays like cookware. They even had a small toy section. I got two TY christmas beanie baby bears for Melissa, a bunch of christmas card kits, a dinner tray to use with my crafting so everything doesn't go everywhere and two bottles of hand soap (fresh cotton and cherry blossom scented!). I "got" a gift for Ma. She picked it out and paid for it but I'm "giving" it to her lol. Its an electric handheld mixer. She used to have one a lot like it that her mother gave her when she first moved away from home. Parts inside of it rusted or something, we tried using it and black flakes fell out and got into the icing we were making. She has a big bowl mixer but it's such a pain to use since it weighs a ton.
Then we went around the corner to Target. No Monster High dolls. Figures. But I caved and got a Moxie Teenz Tristen. She's so pretty@ But her skirt is so tight around her hips and her tights are attached to her skirt, so when I bend her to sit the velcro in the back busts open and her ass hangs out. So, I made her a skirt and am currently crocheting a sweater for her. I tried to sew a top for her but after two failed attempts I quit. Luckily the yarn I'm using for the sweater is the exact same color as the fabric I was trying to use. Plus it's sparkley! I also got a bunch of stickers to put in the christmas cards I have to send out.
I finished the Secret Santa gifts for the DOA swap but I forgot to take pics T^T. I made two skirts. One was zebra print and the other was a light blue. I'm pretty good at making skirts now. Made up my own pattern and it works really good. Too bad I can't do tops -_-
On Monoday, Ma, Dad and I went to the mall. Dad hates shopping and crowds so he hasn't been to the mall in ages. Ma joked that the last time he was at the mall he was probably pushing a stroller lol. They went there to check out those Sleep Number beds. They were impressed so they placed an order. It's all arriving in ten boxes! Two arrived yesterday. I'm expecting the rest today. I'll have to go out in the cold to sign for it and then drag it all into the house.
Then we went to our Target. Still no Monster High dolls. And just my luck, they restocked the next day! It seems like they always restock the day AFTER I was JUST there. I got one of the Bella Sara horses for Melissa. This is the first time I've found them. I've never seen them at Walmart. I got one for myself. His name is Uranus, he's a black pegasus with lavender hair.
Then we ate at Subway. I got the steak and cheese on flatbread. Best cheese steak I've ever had. It's my new favorite. I wanna try the buffalo chicken next. I think I'll get all Subway subs on flatbread from now on. So yummy.
Tuesday was the last day of Ma and Dad's Thanksgiving vacation. We went to Walgreens so Dad could fill out his perscription. He apparently has arthritis in his neck and started physical therapy this week. Someone mentioned the Monster High dolls were at Walgreens but I didn't see them. I got another tin of Bag Balm for Momo. I still haven't been able to completely get rid of her mites.
Then we went to the Cecil Village flea market. I think we were the only ones there. They had lots of nice antique furniture that I liked but I have no place to put anything like that. I got a few TY beanie babies from a guy who seemed down on his luck. I got an Irish bear for Sara and two Teeny Beanie dinosaurs. It all cost only a quarter, so I guess I didn't help the guy much.
Then we went across the street to Goodwill. I got yet more TY beanie babies. A christmas one with holly leaves and berries all over with a jingle bell inside his hat, a Beanie Buddy bear named Huggs and what looks like a Basset Hound for Sara. I got Cirque du Freak book 2 and two G3 My Little Ponies. Kiwi Tart who I had previously but sold to make money to buy Osiris, and Twinkle Twirl. I always wanted her but she came with the big dance studio playset. Both are in great condition except for the prices written on the bottoms of their feet in Sharpie >_<
I recently started playing MyDivaDoll again. But they just shut the site down. There's still OhMyDollz which is the exact same thing, but I had made so much progress on my MDD accounts. Now I have to start over. I had made an OhMyDollz account last month and created another earlier this week. I still have a long way to go. I think they made OhMyDollz in preparation of shutting down MDD, but nobody really realized it. I always thought it was odd to have two identical sites with different names. I'm glad that they have an advent calender for christmas instead of a quest which costs alot of hard earned divadollars. I never have enough divadollars to complete the quests and I end up feeling like I wasted it. And I only have one room in my loft so there's not enough room for all the stuff I would win and buy for the quests lol. I can get additional rooms but they cost real money.
I think that's all the exciting stuff.
I spent part of the morning watching all the Starwberry Shortcake episodes I had piling up on the DVR. Still have about four episodes left plus about four My Little Pony episodes. I stopped for today to watch Supernatural.
I guess for the rest of the day I'll be cleaning dishes, working of the doll sweater and waiting around for the UPS guy.
