The other night I spent about three hours doing my nails. I could not decide what kind of design I wanted, and I tried a bunch of stuff including stamping and a water marble (which was a pretty ok water marble, but the colours just went too Easter/Pastel and it was NOT ME). The next morning, after sleeping with naked nails, I painted down a white base and doodled on my nails with a striping brush and dotting tools, using OPI Fly and Essence Choose Me (the dupe for OPI Catch Me In Your Net and Orly Haley's Comet, etc). It looked ok. Just ok, I didn't love it much. I took these photos, left it on last night and took it off first thing this morning in favor of the plainest manicure EVER (Essie Fifth Avenue with Venique Clear is the New Sexy, no photos though, sorry. Imagine barely sparkly coral. There you go), which is perfectly summery but also lame. I hope I'm struck with some inspiration soon because boring nails will not stand, they just will not stand.
Today, we were meant to be heading to the USA for a week with my family- there are two parties planned. Today is the housewarming party for my brother and his lovely fiancee, and tomorrow my mom had planned a really special party for my grandfather for Father's Day. And I? Completely spaced renewing my passport which expired on June 4th. As I was putting it in my purse this morning- I mean, we were walking out the door at this point- I looked at my passport and saw the date and I totally lost it. Snot flying, tears soaking my shirt and staining my glasses with salt, incoherent sobbing lost it. I've let everyone down, my mom is so upset with me, my husband had to change his work travel plans so he could fly out locally instead of out of Ohio as planned. I just feel like a total heel who has ruined everything. I tried to make it up to the universe by doing important errands today (new trash can, light bulbs, nail polish), but I still feel just completely awful about the whole thing.
I did get new passport photos taken and the application printed out for renewal so in a few weeks this will just be an embarrassment and a disappointment my family will hold on to for a while. I miss being on the ball, and though it is fun to blame my meds and condition for screwing everything up, it has to stop so I'm going to let Adam teach me his new organization methods. They're keeping him on track and he's the most absentminded loveable fool ever- he'd lose his head if it weren't attached and I'm not being cliche when I say that. It takes a lot for me to let Adam teach me/lecture me about anything, but I need to get back on track. I was the girl who was 45 minutes early for everything and prepared for anything. Now I'm lucky I'm dressed and wearing shoes at the same time!
I'm treating Adam to Chinese takeaway tonight as an apology for being such an idiot, he's gone out to pick it up now and I'm looking forward to some delicious soup. I hope your weekend is going a bit smoother than mine, and friends? Check your passport expiry dates and renew early. Don't be like me. Have an awesome weekend!
