The “Yearly” Update?

I honestly wish I knew why this domain is only ever looked at once a year. Maybe it has something to do with the auto-renewal, or maybe it’s my heart yearning to have the time to get back to my roots.  Life has completely taken over and all forms of ‘social media’ that aren’t 100% work related have pretty much taken a back seat. I’m still actively involved in Web Development, so much so that I have no drive or ability to maintain my own stuff. I don’t know how it’s possible to look at WordPress, Dreamweaver & Photoshop on a daily basis and not have some kind of inspiration to do something for myself but clearly coding for clients has sucked the inspiration well dry. On the home front, the last time I actually updated here I was in…

You are a “BLUE”

Here we go again, tryin’ to keep on track with so many hats. When you wear as many hats as myself, it is extremely hard to keep track of which hat to wear on what day and with what task….and more often than not you will catch me wearing more than one hat at a time. The struggle is real 😉 Through it all, I have spent too much time thinking about what I want to do, and just not enough time “DOING”. So I decided the best place to start is here, now, wanting to reconnect with all of you. I recently took a “what color expresses you?” questionaire. Silly – maybe, but their is something to be said about all those mindless (at least until we take one) quizes posted by friends and friends of friends on facebook….

And I’m BACK!

I Know I have been completely MIA, but I am back and ready to blog my little heart out!!! I have had a lot happen since the last time I was here. My son E just turned 3 a few weeks ago, and I now have a second beautiful son L who will be 6 months on the 18th. Boy do they keep me busy! Lately I have been dealing with a lot of screaming and kicking and throwing and big attitude from my 3yr old. I tried my hardest to figure out if this was simply a stage or if it was from lack of socialization with other children or my lack of parenting know-how. Well I put him into a few different classes and programs and there was absolutely no change, and he most certainly did not learn…

We’re almost there!!

It’s been a constant up and down, and I know I’ve bitched about it quite a bit but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  We’re closing on Wednesday 3/12 at 4pm.  I’m excited, but not to the point where I’m jumping up and down.  I’m so over this entire process that I just want my keys and the current owners to fuck off and then I can just work on making it OUR home. We’re doing the final walk through today (3/11), it’s odd to do it the day before the closing, but we’re obligated to get another pest inspection (per banks request) and since we need to be there for that we’re just going to get that over with today.  They supposedly turned the electric back on, but we’re still not sure as to whether…

Keep on keepin’ on…

I’m not going to lie, I think the only reason this domain is still around is based on the fact that I keep it on auto-renewal. The problem with that is I have a tendency to completely forget it’s even here. I’ve actually been blogging more on krissy.nu lately, but that’s due to all of the random personal things going on that I just need an outlet for.  I’m still working hard via AGn Designs, work has out-weighed anything I’ve wanted to do with this domain. There’s a few PSD’s put together for new themes, and I’ve even been tempted to pay someone to code them for me because I’ve been too busy working for other people. Knowing that I’m a control freak when it comes to code… that’s just not going to happen. So for now this domain will…

In need of an upgrade…

Since I’m being pulled in so many different directions for work, I’ve had to pretty much place EVERYTHING on the back burners. I have two new themes in the works for AGn Designs and Krissy.nu.  I’m gradually going through my PSD archives to find a template that I previously created for this site because this pink thing is driving me crazy, even though I (obviously) don’t regularly blog here.  There’s always a lot to do and absolutely no time to do it.  Sometimes I do wish I could just go back to paid blogging, I never really touched Dreamweaver until there was a redesign in place for one of my domains lol. Another “upgrade” required, RAM!  My Macbook came with the default 4GB and I’ve noticed since I’ve been on it a lot more that there’s quite a few hiccups…

Time’s flown by…

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I’ve posted on this domain. It’s on auto-renew so I can always be sure to have it under my portfolio, but for some reason there’s really nothing going on that’s worth posting across multiple sites. Hell, I barely post on krissy.nu. I have Twitter and Facebook to thank for this, Micro-blogging really has taken over the world. My last post made note about my disappointment with Apple based on the fact that they have removed the 17″ laptop from their line-up.  I am happy to report, however, that as a Valentines Day gift from Sean I am now the proud owner of one of the remaining 17″ macbooks in circulation. It came brand new from MacMall. This company has turned into our “Go To” for all things Apple. My only complaint…

Macbook Changes

By now, anyone with an internet connection knows that Mac has “upgraded” their systems to include a new retina display for a more crisp and clean color pallet.  The downfall would be something that I wasn’t able to really find online – I needed to see it in person because I can’t ever seen to find a picture of the right side of the computer. The 15″ Macbook Pro w/ Retina display doesn’t have a DVD drive – ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  The point of laptops is to be MOBILE, with MOBILE comes DISKS (ie: a DVD collection OR program disks for oh I don’t know PHOTOSHOP! considering the bulk of the Mac industry is powered by GRAPHICS DESIGNERS of all shapes and sizes)  Why would they remove such an important feature? I can understand not having it on the…

In honor of HUMP day

So here’s the thing, I dont like to complain and I don’t think I ask too much……I just want five freakin minutes of peace!! I have been battling this new crazy schedule of cranky baby in the day, getting absolutely nothing accomplished except making baba and finding the binkie (pacafier) my son loves to throw under the couch all day. Once my husband gets home from work all I can think is WHERE DO I START! Not only do I have my work that I get paid for to catch up on, before anyone figures out I haven’t completed it all day…..but my house is a freakin disaster. I finally got to the dishes and laundry yesterday. The livingroom and bedroom were glowing on Monday. What goes on in this house that I can not keep it clean for one…

To be or NOT to be…..Offended?

So as a new mommy, I admit that I do not have many other mommy friends with children the same age. Most have children 3yrs and up or no children at all. I know that this will all change once my son starts going to some sort of school, but in the meantime, we take what we can get. When my son was first born, I was happy to re-kindle a friendship from past with a new mommy to a little boy only 2 months older than mine. Niether of us were working so we would have playdates almost every day. Once my friend got a job, we really didn’t get to see each other. The phone calls and texts became fewer and longer inbetween, then stopped all together. Not in a bad way, just in a I’m busy kinda…
