Dolly Dream Vacation

Dolly Dream Vacation

Thankful today wasn’t so blisteringly hot that I couldn’t be on the computer. Still, what I wouldn’t give right now to be on a cruise somewhere with a nice tropical breeze keeping me cool.

Anywhere But Here

Anywhere But Here

 

This place.

This godforsaken town.

Outsiders don’t get it. They never will. Everyone wants to visit but nobody wants to stay. And while it seems lovely and idyllic on the outside, the truth is that there’s little to offer those of us who weren’t born with a silver spoon in our mouths. It’s a lifelong sentence of drudgery and mediocrity. The rich drink their champagne and party while the blue collar families slowly drown. Efforts to revive the city have done little to boost the economy and so we are left waiting, wanting more. Wishing, for the wind to sweep us away to anywhere but here…

(Please note that this RP isn’t associated with the sim. It was just a nice place to take my photograph)

Fix This Mess

Fix This Mess

The husband and I are in the middle of fixing up our house. We purchased with the belief that it only needed cosmetic repairs – taking down the old wallpaper and wood paneling, replacing switch and outlet covers, fresh coat of paint, etc. 3 years later, we’re elbow-deep in a complete overhaul, our latest project being new floors and ceiling for the family & rec room.

A close RL friend and I decided to document our amusing and painful home restoration experiences. (It’s too comical, horrible, and awkward not too.) Please pardon the shameless self-promotion but if you’re so inclined, you can read more about our home woes here.

New Me

First post in a long time. I’ve been so preoccupied with my RL and everything going on there that I haven’t honestly had much motivation to even log into SL much less take photos. I tried forcing myself to work through my funk but it never really helps out. But now, with the thawing of winter, and my new pen tablet, my motivation and creativity are in full swing again. It’s been a long time coming but I feel like me again.

This is the first picture I’ve done since Christmas time, the first one with my new Bento head, and the first one I edited with my tablet. I simply added a few strands to the hair and pretty much kept the rest as is, not wanting to do too much too soon and end up ruining things. Kaiden032617
