Portland, OR?  I know where *all* of them are in the area (one of them is about a block from a MAX stop, aka the light rail, which will probably be the easiest way to get to one if you don't have a car).  If you want directions, let me know!

 

I'll definitely hit you up for info. I've never been that far west before. I'm sure it will be held in a convention center of sorts. That's where these things usually are.

You should probably start making a list now of places to eat since Portland has the most wonderful foodstuffs known to humankind. The food carts alone will blow your mind!

@@SaraP I'm not having any problems.  Does the url that you end up on look like this:

http://www.makeuptalk.com/f/index.php?app=core&module=search&do=viewNewContent&search_app=forums

 

Sometimes when I have problems with sites (it happens a *lot* at work), all I have to do is clear my browser history, and *poof!* problem solved.

 

@@meaganola I cleared cookies and I still have no new content. I just checked on my phone and it's the same, should I contact the director?

Yeah, definitely reach out to @Director. I don't deal with the tech stuff. I just know that I have to clear stuff on my desktop at work a *lot*, so that's always my first thing to try.

I wanted to get all the gifts I need to mail (including my Santee's) wrapped and packed today, but I've been awake for 48 hours, so it is time to whip out the big guns on this stupid insomnia and go to sleep.

 

My hubby works tonight, so I have to be awake by 5.... crap. Just realized what time it is. I lied. Anyone have any good suggestions for keeping a person who can't fall asleep, but can't keep their eyes open, either, entertained for five hours? My kids hit the hay at eight p.m. and then I can fall into slumbering bliss... probably.

Whine. Cry. Pout. My tooth broke today. Totally half of it is gone. The tooth was mostly fillings anyway so there is no pain except for the sharp piece poking my tongue. Of course I can't get into the dentist till next Monday. And I'm totally freaked out by even the thought of going to the dentist.

 

So my day has been peachy keen.

Anyone else's cats watch tv? My bubby watches it every now and again. He really loves anything with animals. I am cracking up right now though. He is laying in a chair in front of the tv watching elf. I just happened to look over and he was just watching away. Hilarious!

Jethro not only watches t.v. he has to sit in the recliner with his paws propped up on the arm like a little old man. Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, and old reruns of Hee-Haw are his favorite.

@@chelsealady ~ Ugh! That happened to me while on vacation. I lost a big junk of one of my bottom front teeth. It was so sharp yet, I kept running my tongue over it. It ruined the rest of my week - it was such a distraction! I got it fixed and its perfect. I got a dentist scolding for opening a pistachio with my teeth. It was a very memorable lesson!

Teeth can break on the weirdest things you can think of.  My brother broke a tooth a couple of years ago on a piece of bread.  Just plain old sandwich bread, not a hard roll or something else you could expect might cause a broken tooth.  He tore off a corner of bread, started chewing, made a face, and pulled chunks of molar out of his mouth.  Of course, our family has a history of stupid shit like that, so this is one of the milder things that have happened to us.  To this day, I cannot fathom how I broke my toe ON A PACK OF TOILET PAPER.  Seriously.  *Toilet paper*.  I've broken my toes a lot, but that's the one that seems most inexplicable.  Close second:  On a wall while I was doing laundry.  Not the doorway.  A wide expanse of wall you might think was easy to avoid.  You would be wrong.  That was two weeks before my family went to Disneyworld for a week.  When I told my dad about it, he was actually kind of excited because "We can get you a wheelchair and get moved to the fronts of all of the lines!"  No, Dad, we are *not* doing that.

I'm feeling semi accomplished, I just put together a desk from ikea. Didn't want to deal with the crazy instructions and instead went to their website to watch a video tutorial.

 

Sure as sh!t half way through I realized the had made changes to the desk and the tutorial was out dated! Just a few pieces left over... Why IKEA Why???

I had a couple of pieces left over last time I made something and I was not going to take it all apart and put it back together. B)

I'm feeling accomplished - xmas baking is all packed and ready for me to carry to another country to distribute to my family....

 

now if I could STOP having trouble with my xmas shopping/deliveries all would be well.  

 

All I wanted for Xmas was to find out where my daughter was going for university - but we called the school that was her first choice and withdrew her application as she has changed her mind about what she wants to do and we are back to square one....I find this stressful...I hate now knowing...and the school she spoke to indicated that they actually were very interested in her....but she's going in a different direction.  Now the new school she wants to try for only accepts 1% of applicants - I'm sooooooooo anxious and scared for her...she has alot of work ahead of her and from what I hear it may take a few tries before she gets a place...why oh why does this have to be so difficult.  And most the schools that specialise in her stuff won't consider her due to her age so this is going to tough.

Yay for having a super lazy post office. :( They'll probably update as soon as they hit the destination post offices.

Every. Night. My internet has been going out at approximately 8pm... sometimes not coming back online until someone (apparently) gets to their office at 9 or 10 the next morning. Grrrr...

 

Last night, I actually had work I needed to do instead of farting around on the internet like I usually do after my kids go to bed, but no. Not possible. My phone is so terrible that I can't do anything that way. So I wrapped presents instead - I'm so proud of myself. Now my terrible handiwork is ready to go to recipients all around te country. :lol:

Officially have no job as of today and no chance of getting hired anywhere at 37 weeks pregnant.  I love that HR waited until now to tell me this.  What a fantastically crappy day.

What jerks. Was it a "just you" thing or were others let go at the same time? *hugs*

Oh, man, that *sucks*. The same thing happened to my sister-in-law WHILE SHE WAS PACKING HER DESK UP TO GO ON MATERNITY LEAVE. Her company went out of business.

    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!     
    • The best concert I have ever attended was by Bohemia: the Punjabi Rapper. He was in Delhi (Lajpat Nagar) He is my favourite Artist and Rapper. When I saw him for the first time, my soul felt bliss ❤️ All the crowd of fans were going insane about him I can't forget that moment and want to attend more and more of his concerts
