I'm very cross

Haven't posted much.  I suck.  Sorry!

Saturday we had Nathan's birthday party, though his birthday was a week ago.  We had Ben and Julie over and played tabletop games.  It was a lot of fun!  Nathan and I made shrimp tacos with fresh mango salsa for dinner and I made a cheesecake with dark chocolate cookie crust and dark chocolate ganache.  I was very happy with how it came out.

...also, I made people wear pointed paper hats and I decorated with streamers and balloons.  If you're going to have a birthday party, you might as well have a birthday party!

Good news!  Both Nathan and I have received raises in the last week!!  This is just pure coincidence, since we don't work at the same place, but very nice.  Mine won't actually go into affect until the end of March.  At that point, I intend to purchase for myself a new scanner and new stamps will resume then!  I have a number of drawings just waiting to be scanned, but the attempts I made at Office Max and Staples were for naught, as they came out unusable.  Le sigh.

If you're curious what I've been working on while I'm not drawing, I've started posting pictures of my cross stitch projects to Tumblr.  I don't want to post them here, as they'll clutter the place, but I will post final projects.  If you want to see my WIPs, go here: Mayzy's Tumblr

Here's a taste of what you'll find there now, but for info on the details, you'll have to check Tumblr...

Came in this morning to find that my desk had been completely PLASTERED in unicorn pictures and the message, "MAY ROCKS" to celebrate my 6 year anniversary with the company.

Sometimes this job is really hard on me, but my team is so great.

Six Months

Went to Chompie's to celebrate the six month anniversary of our first date, the same place where we had our first date.

The food at Chompie's is always good.  Love that Chicken Matzo soup!  Had the grilled salmon sliders.  The salmon itself was tasty but it was kind of pathetic that they put cheap pre-made grocery store 'salad mix' on it.

Need to get around to putting away the Christmas tree...

Happy New Year

Working on being better about recording this year.  

I have been having the worst artist's block.  Not sure what to do about it.

Yesterday was nice.  Just sat around the house and with Nathan and watched Doctor Who reruns all day.  Then we went to California Pizza Kitchen for dinner.  Ok, the pizza sucked, but getting out with him was nice.

Today was the first day back to work and oh it was tiring.  I need to sleep early.

Wish me luck.
