I used a hair removal cream for my face and I think I wiped it off too hard because the skin is raw and in paaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiin. I see bits of red and even tiny bits of blood on the ice pack I put on it. I think I rubbed the top layer of skin right off 0_o I put some Neosporin on the area because it has a numbing thing in it. So I think I'll stop using that cream! I've only used it maybe twice before and the results were never impressive anyway. I'll pay for waxing if I have to. Hey Zeus.

In better news, my friend should be coming down tomorrow night because we're seeing Frankenstein on Saturday. While she's here, I'm planning on making these Sloppy Buffalo Joes (OMGSOGOOD), these cupcakes because I effing love them, and these oatmeal chocolate chip pudding cookies which I've never made before but in all descriptions people say they're crack so they must be good! I was just browsing more recipes and I think I might make these for breakfast. So many ideas. So little time.

And I might be going to my dad's the weekend of 4/23 so my sister and I can have a Doctor Who party. We're going to watch the premiere and make cupcakes or something. I don't know yet. Red Velvet probably. My sister is addicted to that shit.

Today. Today was emotionally exhausting. My mom got picked up by her boss/friend/my Godmother at around 11am and they drove to the hospital in San Jose. Her surgery started around 2pm. It was supposed to take a couple of hours I think but I got a call about an hour and a half later saying that she was already in recovery. Everything had gone smoothly and it was a textbook procedure. She was out of it for a couple hours, but about an hour ago, she called me from her room saying that she was doing okay. She was on pain meds, but thankfully not morphine because she wasn't slurring her words/speaking in slow motion. She was bemoaning the fact that she got sugar free jello for dinner (she doesn't like jello) :) She could have been released today, but everyone (including her finally) agreed that maybe a night in the hospital where they could watch her, drug her, and show her how to get around might be a good idea. So she should be back tomorrow afternoon. She'll be in quite some pain, but it sounds like this was a good decision. Because she had never had her back really taken care of the first time, there was quite a bit to clean out in there.

I think my grandma, who has Alzheimer's, sensed something was off/that my mom wasn't here. She was acting extra crazy today and talking about her mother. I hate it when she does that. She's 94, but I'm not about to just tell her that her mother is long dead. So I try to steer the conversation into another direction.

And as for me, I was a nervous wreck all day until I actually talked to my mom. Couldn't really focus on anything and I'd start crying for no good reason. I had a headache all day and my stomach was beyond upset. But I'm doing better now. Now that I know she's okay. Brother and I had leftover chili he had made a couple days ago, and I made some cornbread muffins from scratch to go with it. In fact, I'm too tired to think of something different. Sorry, today's picture will be another meal )

Feeling a little off today. One of those days where everything sort of hits you at once. Also, the friend who's getting married went dress shopping and such today with friends and family. Didn't say a single thing about it to me. I love how she gets on my ass about not reaching out (which I have been trying to get better at) but she seems to make no effort at all. I heard about all this through a mutual friend and Facebook. We used to be best friends. I know we've grown apart over the years but I wish she would either make an effort or stop pretending. We wouldn't be friends if we had just met. All we have in common is the past. The problem is, I don't know how much I really care. I don't like talking on the phone in general, but with her, she'll tell you everything in her life but if you try to talk about your problems, she can't be arsed to care. I'm so sorry my pathetic life of being unemployed and taking care of my mom isn't exciting for you and your perfect fairy tale you're living in. I have become something of a recluse (bordering on hikikomori) lately, and sometimes I need a little push. But if you want me to, I can try to make the effort. And I know we're all old enough to have our own lives and problems. I'm not expecting it to be like it was when we were still in school. Not like it would matter. The thought of being alone with her just makes me nervous. We'd have nothing to talk about and I hate small talk. I'm thankful for the few friends I do have and the time I spend with them. I just... don't care and still care quite a bit about this friendship. I've known her for what? 16 years. Since 3rd grade. It sucks thinking that it could be over.

Lately I feel like it's just my immediate family (mom, brother, grandma) and me. I barely even see or talk to my sister, dad, and stepmom. With my mom hurt, me unemployed, and my brother and me taking care of our grandma every day... I'm just having a low day is all. A poor/woe is me day.

I did make blueberry muffins from scratch today, using this recipe. They are yummy! I ate like 6 of them so far. I love baking/cooking. I find it relaxing.

And I just 'ordered' a $50 check using some of my credit card points. I think I'm going to buy myself this Starfleet sweatshirt.

Even though I haven't even posted yet...
ETA: Sometimes the universe answers your call. Another friend just messaged me on FB asking if I wanted to get breakfast and hang out tomorrow. I feel like a dick for complaining when I do really have some great friends.

I have a movie rec for y'all - All Over the Guy. '4 Friends, 3 Guys, 2 Couples... You Do The Math.'

It's a romcom, but it's sweet, funny, and more 'realistic' than most others (aka it made me cry). Also, it has Richard Ruccolo (2 Guys, A Girl, And a Pizza Place), Sasha Alexander (NCIS), Christina Ricci, Lisa Kudrow, and Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond).

And a recipe rec too - Roasted Artichoke Salad. Mmmmmm... I made it tonight and my mom LOVED it.
