GLITTER "SOMETIMES" MAKES THING BETTER

Well, last night was my first of many nights sleeping in the recliner. I'm using the word "sleeping" very loosely. I still slept like complete crapovitch, but it did make a difference as far as arm pain. So let's just call that a "half success", shall we?   Mabes I'll sleep better there after I do it for a bit. Or mabes I should switch to Kev's recliner, which is bigger. Decisions, decisions....

Told the bossman today that I wasn't sure if I'd be back right away the Monday after my surgery. Yeah, that went over fan-f***-ingtastically. Not so much. He said that maybe he should get someone else in to work for me. Um, thanks? I told him I can't afford to not be working. Then he offered to lay me off for three months and I could collect unemployment. I'm not so much a fan of that idea, either. Even after 23 years I don't feel like I'd be guaranteed my job back if he were to find someone that can do the work I do for less money. Sad to feel that way. I wish I felt from him even a smidge of the loyalty I have towards him. He knows I need to work, and he knows I try really hard to not take time off for health reasons. Hell, if I go back over the 23 years he technically probs owes me at least 10 weeks of vacay for all the years I didn't take fun time off. Too bad that doesn't accumulate so I can use it. He also remarked that I've taken "so much time off this year". So for now I guess I'll drag my ass in here on Monday, 5 days after surgery, and see how things go. Wish me luck.

In keeping with the depression that is slowly starting to creep up on me, I thought I'd take a page from a bunch of peeps who claim "glitter makes everything better".
Zoya Blu, China Glaze Light as Air gradient, Orly Shine On Crazy Diamond glitter topcoat
I guess I'll agree with them a little on that.  I'm loving this mani. My gradient is with Zoya Blu and China Glaze Light as Air. It was pretty enough on its own, but then I remembered I had a pretty glitter that might look good on top of it. This one is Orly Shine On Crazy Diamond, a nice fine glitter that is actually a bit holographic if more than one coat is used. Since I wasn't trying to cover that gradient, I just went with the one coat.

I'm thinking I might actually keep this until tomorrow unless my eyes suddenly get "un-tired" enough to do nails again tonight. I feel like I need to do a bunch of mani's to make up for how sad I'm going to be if I can't do my nails after surgery.

Seriously, what am I going to do after surgery??  I've yet to figure out how I'll even use my laptop. That is seriously going to put me right over the edge. I live on the computer from the time I get up until the time I go to bed. I only take breaks to eat, potty and do my nails. I may reach a whole new level of cray-cray if I can't play on the interwebs!!

Jeebus. I wish something good would happen. I'm kind of over the crap. I know other people are going through so much more than I am, but for right now I'm throwing myself a teensy-weensy pity party.  I should have bought booze for it. Or at least an awesome choco-cherry cake. 

Dammit. Now I want cake.

    1. He's really only an ass when it comes to giving me time off. It's hard since I'm his only help. Things will get better; I'm just in a mood, I think.

    Defo the choc cake, booze, depression and upcoming surgery could be a bad combo!.. Nice mani! The gradient is super subtle!
