So it was 83 degrees today. HEAVEN! There's nothing quite like blasting country music with my window rolled down, wearin my sunglasses, looking at blue skies. I love it! For some reason I don't listen to country much in the winter time. Its just this weird thing...I associate it with summer time. Hm.
Well, I PASSED BEC! The exam I took last time...I found out I passed. SO HAPPY! Oh my. So relieved. Now I just need to pass the next two tests and I'll be REALLY happy.
So I got this really great idea from my friend Lori. She had these adorable candle sticks and I complimented them, and she said she MADE THEM! So she told me how and I did it and I love em! They are definitely a little rusty and coulda been done better...but whatevs. I am NOT too picky.
Wanna know how to make them? EASY.
1. Get a bunch of candle sticks. If you tell people you're looking for candle sticks, they just might give some to you for free!
2. Mess with them to see which ones look best ontop of eachother. (You will need to mess with right side up...upside down...etc. Just play around with it and see all your options)
3. Glue them together.
4. Spray paint. I didn't even prime them.
Pretty easy! Since I already had all the spray paint from leftover projects, and half the candle sticks were given to me...the whole project cost me $2.18. Not bad...not bad at all. Some of them are a little funky...but I kinda like it that way! It took me long enough to do this. I saw the candle sticks at Lori's house probably like...a YEAR ago. Been meaning to do it since. I've had the candle sticks for months! Just haven't gotten around to it. Finally did it last week. YIPPEE!!!
Well...as always, my life basically consists of Lyme treatments and studying to become a CPA. SO exciting :) I'm pretty much freaking out about my next test, in 3 weeks. I wish I had another week to study, but the testing center doesn't have any room...as of now. Oh well. I'll just have to work super hard. Which is hard. Especially when it's so nice and hot and I feel lazy. And tired.
OH YEAH- I finally gained the courage to give myself the B12 shot! I have to give it to myself twice a week. I was so nervous. But I finally did it, and it wasn't so bad! And I honestly feel like I can already tell a difference. So hopefully soon I'll have more energy. I can't really describe what it's like. Before I found out I had lyme I always thought something was wrong with me cause I couldn't do things like my sisters could, or my mother in law, or mom or really lots of women. They seemed to be able to do SO MUCH no sweat. But I just honestly couldn't. Still can't. But now I realize it's because of LYME. Not cause I'm lazy or I'm not good enough or whatever. What a relief. And I don't mean to say like...I expect to be superwoman when I'm through with this. I just mean...I can make dinner and clean it up without feeling completely spent afterwards. Or...clean the bathroom and do something else too.
Anyway- all that to say, I feel like these B12 shots are gonna help lots. Thank goodness!
Well, I'm off. Till next time.
