Time to vent!

And I apologize ahead of time.

Life right now is incredibly way too stressful. I’ve found myself saying, “I am way too young to be handling stuff like this.” with the afterthought of, “No. You ARE the age to be handling these things. Welcome to life.”

My husband and I are currently living in hubby’s parents old house (they moved to Delaware and unfortunately, due to the economy, had a snowball’s chance in hell with selling this house) with hubby’s sister, her husband, and her two kids. Its a 5 bedroom house. There is room to spare. THAT is not the stressful part believe it or not.

The stressful thing is that the family has several rental properties not making payments of their rent (and have not for the past few months) which may force hubby’s parents into bankruptcy and all of us out on our ass and homeless soon. This, alongside with her bah-humbug husband, things have been a bit stressful. Thinking about the fact that we are about to evict 2 people within a week and my weekends will be spent cleaning up after these terrible tenants that should have had CPS called on them is NOT an exciting thought. However, family is family and we all need to pitch in during these tough times.

So hubby and I went shopping today for some of the most annoying and obnoxious Christmas decorations we could find. The house needs it. It is too damn depressing and even though I am not remotely religious, we needed some damn Christmas cheer. So after candystriping all the pillars in the house, adding lighted garland to the banisters, I feel a little better about being at home and I think the kids were positive about it as well.

It is a good distraction.

Spent the evening with my friends/family. We have known each other for over a decade and set aside time every so often to make sure we have a good time and enjoy each others company.

We checked out this really cool place called Highball – owned by the same people who own Alamo Drafthouse here in Austin. They are okay. I would have to say that their karaoke list is somewhat lacking. Even the Korean karaoke place has “Wig in a Box”.

All good though. We had a blast!

This is what happens when I have too much time on my hands and I stay at home for the day. I really should concentrate more on the photography aspect than being silly with Photoshop. I just genuinely love textures and messing around with it.

All I can say is that I love autumn. This Thanksgiving really made me think about how much the changes in the seasons make me happy.

Textures are as follows:

Just enjoying my pre-Thanksgiving dinner when I got home from work at 10:30pm. The best leftovers around! Yum yum Don’s BBQ and my good ol’ Texas beer!

Back hurts. Real bad. I’m not even sure how I got to this point but I feel like I pinched a nerve and its so hard to sit at work for 8 hours.

Going to call it an early night.

Thank you Yume for your awesome idea!
