Good day friends!
I have a lot to talk about today that you may or may not be interested in. So, if you're not into it I have some picture to tide you over. (And no worries, yo. It's cool.)
Orly Satin Hues Satin Eloquence
Two coats, no base or top in sun
This is the other HTF Orly I got from ebay. It is incredibly sheer so you really would need four coats to make this worth it. That said, I really like it. And it's pink! I do not love pinks but this makes me happy. This is an old formula with formaldehyde and the like so it does not smell pleasant. However, it did apply beautifully and dries quickly. I love the satin finish because I love mattes and it would be too sweet and twee were it shiny.
I have tried it as a layering polish but my results have been very much bad. And that's all there is to say about that! ;)
Now on to the things that have been troubling me. And, yes, troubling.
I got back to work to endure one of the most challenging weeks since I started. We had to prepare for an annual inspection by the director of retail sales and that entailed cleaning every square inch, making sure everything is in its place and everyone is doing their jobs precisely. I had to do all of this with a co-worker on vacation and two cashiers on vacation. It was so fucking aggravating because I also had to contend with employees calling out sick. I was angry, stressed and out of my fucking mind.
We got high marks on our inspection but it wore me right the fuck out. I spent my entire "weekend" trying to recover and I didn't quite do it. I had another week being short staffed and busting my ass.
In spite of all that, I still love my job. It was just very hard for two weeks.
What else is on my mind? Glad you asked.
I am in a complete rut. I come home from work and do the same exact thing every night. I do the same things on my days off. I am so bored and uninspired. It's got me upset and desperate. I'm so unhappy that I've been pulling away from all my friends and just blowing things off. I just hang out in the house with the cats. Just thinking of going out fills me with dread and this is no bueno.¡Qué lástima!
I need to find something to give me some spark. I'm not about to quit nail polish nor am I going to give up this blog but I have thought about it. In the middle of a tantrum but, yeah.
There are some things I do want to do but I just don't think I will get to. I have a spare bedroom that I essentially use as a wardrobe. I have a cool little vanity in there, an awesome vintage dresser and a sweet little couch. I've always wanted to make it a hang out for myself but it just hasn't happened. It needs a lot of work to get it where I want it and I need help. Bob knows, I adore my husband but he's not going to help me get rid of the cheap ass armoires taking up most of the fucking space in there.
Aside from the work the room needs, I'm worried that I will not be able to use the room. Why? Because of my beloved husband.
This is something I've been dealing with in the 10+ years I've shared with Matt. He hates to be alone. If I'm in a different room, he'll keep popping in to ask me what I'm doing, will I come watch TV with him, how long am I going to be in there, and so on. Mind you, he does not like my nail supplies in the living room. He doesn't like seeing anything left out. (It's always my stuff too...)
So I feel like I'm in a no-win situation. I do have to mention that he is better about it than he used to be but I am not confident that he would be cool with me hanging out in another room for awhile in the evening.
I don't know what the fuck to do and I'm just pissed about the whole thing. All I can do right now is force myself to get out of this funk and quit being a bad friend. Meh. I just need my Sugar Mama. She always makes things better.
Thanks for taking the time to read this if you have. I'm sorry it's so whiny. I hope to be back to normal soon.
