The swelling has started going down. The bruises are becoming more noticeable. I can wear most of my sneakers without to much pain. As long as I don't poke it, it's fine. Ish.

The worst part of this whole mess is that this is my weekend off which means I'm working 6 days straight afterward. Which isn't ideal with a foot injury.

Photo from yesterday evening below the cut.

Managed to check in a pallet of car batteries. Then I went to unwrap them so I could put them away. Shrink wrap caught on one. Pulled it off the pallent and directly onto my foot, corner first. Don't think I broke anything but it doesn't feel that great. And it's my right foot so driving home was fun. Photo below the cut.

Had a lovely time at my joint birthday party. I did not eat all of the mashed potatoes but I did make a good showing for myself. Probably ate close to half of the potatoes. Plus a Cornish hen, and barbeque chicken and peas and green beans. And cake and half a klondike bar. I may need to be rolled to work tomorrow.

Have some photos )

The not sister in law keeps sending me sneak peeks of tomorrow's party.

Made it all day in the new boots. Did buy inserts at lunch because they lacked proper arch support for my feet. And had to stick a bandaid on my heal, but after I put in the inserts they weren't rubbing anymore.

Tomorrow I'll wear a trusty pair of sneakers to work.

Sunday boots again, but just to my joint birthday party with the not nephew. It's unicorn and rainbow themed I'm pretty stoked. Also happy about the fact there's going to be like 4 pounds of garlic potatoes. I'm going to see how much of that I can single-handedly eat.

So I am getting a raise this year with my performance review. My boss was unsure about that where I just got a raise with my promotion. So as of whenever my raise goes into effect, I'll be making $4.03 more an hour than I was before the promotion.

I'm officially above the poverty level baby. And really need to stop buying stuff online. Just because I have money in the bank doesn't mean I need to spend it. I want to buy a house. So I should stop buying boots... and stuffed animals, and make-up.

In other news, my new 100$ combat boots showed up today. They are real leather, and have slip-resistant soles and are you know basically actually combat boots. My last pair were 25$ at most and all man-made materials. But I got 4 years out of them before the tread wore out. And yes combat boots are an essential part of my wardrobe. I should have picked up leather conditioner/waterproofer on my way home. Because I wants to wear the new boots. But the weather is such an unpredictable bitch right now that I should probably not wear them until I've done that. Actually, I've got leather care stuff for the seats in my car, think that would work on my boots?

Why???

Someday the snow will end, right? Maine hasn't entered its own ice age without my knowledge?

ugh

That's what my car looked like when I got out of work today.

Having a very low key birthday this year. Having finished two weeks of training then work one day back in my store I very much didn't want to do anything today. However, I did dye my hair and once again feel more like myself.

All done with training! Well, I still have some computer stuff to do, but do with training that requires me to stay in a hotel. So yay for that.

Hung out with my brother and his girlfriend again. Failed to play Mario Wii U with any success. But with a lot of fun, and him saying trying to keep me and his girlfriend alive was like herding drunk cats.

And in true to himself form, when our conversation about violence against women in TV shows morphed into what shows are equal opportunity on the nudity he mused on whether or not Anthony Mackie shows up naked in the second season of Altered Carbon. Specifically, if he shows his dick. Because sometimes brother's are just like that.

Back in a hotel for another week. But only four days of class this week. And more specific to my job so that I may learn something this week.

After this, I shouldn't have to come to training again. Unless I change positions, so, at least 6 months and the service manager is already trying to backstab me after I made a joke about him making sure he doesn't get fired for 6 months. Lucky for me our manager knows he's full of crap, but did warn me so I can be on my guard around the guy.

Bet he'd be worse if he knew management in our store thinks I should have his job, and also that I'm much more likely get promoted to our boss's level first as I'm being groomed for that role.

Well, that's a bummer, the house I'd been trying to convince my Mom to go look at with me sold at auction last week. For less than my car cost.

Who got 100% on their assesment in 10 minutes? This asshole right here.

Day 1

First day of training over. I'm pretty hopeful that I'll pass the final exam. I only missed one queastion in the pre-assessment.

Go me I guess. And I finished the assessment way faster than the rest of the class. Then again I've been with the company more than double the time of the others in my class. Only one year less than the teacher.

Me and my lack of ambition and motivation what.

I seem to finally be (mostly) over the cold I came down with at the beginning of the month. Just in time for me to pack up and live out of a hotel room for 2, not quite continuous, weeks.

The cats have only just forgiven me for the trip to Florida so I'm sure it'll go over well. Plus the boyfriend isn't thrilled about it either.

In other news, I have been a cross stitching crazy lady lately. I finished one that says I can't adult today and another that says laundry today or naked tomorrow. And a couple days ago I started one purchased from <user name=shitpostsampler site=tumblr.com>. I've bought a number of their patterns but the one I had to do first says A forgotten God can't run my life any worse than I'm already running my life. Although I am changing run/running to ruin/ruining. Most I've being working on these while continuing to re-watch Umbrella Academy. (I just love Klaus and Diego)

Although I did take a break from in long enough to watch the Love Death + Robots anthology on Netflix.

Hi everyone! Haven't been active much here or anywhere else lately. On the other hand, I've finished 2 cross stitch projects and started a third. And I'm watching The Umbrella Academy for the third time.

And working. Weee.

Obviously, I'm a big fan of The Umbrella Academy. If you're on the fence about watching it I say go for it.

So I've been doing the new job for about a week now. With a head cold because nothing says welcome back from a vacation like getting sick. I'm not sure if I should blame the boyfriend or an airport for the cold.

Soon is my least favorite part of the promotion. Being sent off for training. They assured me I'd get a week home between the two weeks of training. They were lying liars who lie. I'm going to be home three days.

And I'm probably going to have to deal with a roommate for at least the first week of training. The second week maybe not as it's job specific and I work in automotives which is still considered a man's place. Like in my interview I was actually asked if I could deal with it where it was really a male-dominated area. I straight up said I've been the only girl in the boys club since I was 11. (That's when I started helping my Dad with his race cars)

I mean after I said it I had a moment of oops maybe I shouldn't have put it like that, but it obviously didn't stop me from getting the job.

Traveling

My flight isn't for almost an hour and I've already been at the airport an hour. Still doing better than the gate across from me. Their flight was supposed to be leaving now and they haven't even started boarding.

I took one last dip in the pool even though it means everything in my bag, and my person will smell faintly of chlorine.

Just chilling out at the condo by myself for the time being. Dad is at the barn riding Lilith. She's a lovely mare. Big moose ears that sometimes earn her extra points in shows because when my step-mother bows at the end of a ride the horse bows with her ears.

I won't see my step-mother again until she's back to VT in April. She's got stuff going on with the horses at the barn. But Dad will be back shortly.

Thus far my flights are all on time. My boyfriend has been instructed to bring my winter coat with him to the airport because I'm going to be freezing I'm sure.

Back to work on Friday whether I want to be back or not. But I think I have Tuesday off so I only have to work a couple of days before I get another day off.

Today is my last full day in Florida. I've had a good trip. Done lots of things. Yesterday I even got to see a pod of dolphins!

This morning Dad and I hit up a couple of car dealerships so I could look at some cars that I'm not really going to be able to find in Maine.

This afternoon I'm hanging out with my step-mother at the condo. The weather is still pretty nice but not like run off to the beach nice. Which is fine, there has been a lot of amazing weather for my trip.

Sunday I went to a huge art festival and managed to find some Star Trek related art, and the buy a print of it because I am not made of money. Unfortunately, it's too big to fit in my carry on so Dad is either going to mail it to me or I'll just get it from him after he drives back up to VT.
