I dislike change, and I'm an old fuddy duddy who doesn't want to learn new platfroms, lol. Tumblr, how do you even work? I mostly understand Dreamwidth, but apparently I need to build my reading list for the few friends who came here from LJ and actually post. I think I have like 3 on my reading page. I'm trying to keep up with everyone on Twitter and Facebook but that's hit-or-miss.

I started a new course of meds back in March, and have been seeing a LCSW for counseling on the regular, both of which seem to be helping. Other than worrying about copays, obviously. I'm racking up quite the bill for copays for the psychiatrist. My therapy copays are only $12.48 a visit though, and I get assistance for my prescriptions. I'm constantly worried about losing that assistance though. Ronnie getting a car and a job works against us.

Ronnie starts his junior year of high school next week, and Davey will be a sophomore. (Kelly Marie would be starting college; I'm old.) Ronnie has been working all summer at the car dealership where my brother works. He's in the wash bay washing cars, but hopefully that helps him after he gets his auto service certifications and is ready to work in the shop. He's taking auto service at school this year and also a full year welding class - he did a half-year intro to welding class last year and really enjoyed it. Davey is focused on wrestling conditioning and his youtube channel. And considering going to Bridgewater to be a Pastor or a Music Director. He taught a class at VBS this summer and then had some kind of experience at church camp (he called it a breakdown; I asked if he meant breakthrough and he said it was kinda both). Duke and Duchess turned 6 human years old yesterday. Margrave is about 15 months which is apparently the equivalent of being a teenager, so she goes from being a crazy wild thing to having an attitude. Normal cat behavior. All my other kids are growing up on me. I don't know who told them they could do that. (Larkin says that God told her she could grow up, and that if I want a baby I should go adopt one.)

I've been watching a lot of TV and Netflix. I've only read a dozen or so books this summer, though I have read plenty of novel-length fanfic.

So there's your Tuesday Tabby Update. Now I have to go deal with the potty-training toddler. Love you all! <3

What the actual WHAT? I mean... Brendon Urie, what? Idek, you guys.

Also, I ♥ Gabe Saporta. "Quack quack quack fuck you @petewentz"

Do yall follow Jim Beaver (jumblejim) on twitter? He was letting his daughter Maddie tweet on his account today and she was writing fanfic on twitter. It was kinda really adorable. And she said "You guys will never believe this, but I met Sam! And Dean! And Bobby! Wait, Bobby's my dad. Hee Hee. Maddie." So cute. :)

Yall see this necklace? I really like it. Someone should buy it for me. (I know, Hinton's in West Virginia, right?) But it is nice, and if yall haven't checked out the stuff that [livejournal.com profile] apiphile has up at her etsy shop, you really really should.

While I'm pimping Derek out, you should check out her RedBubble page (my personal favorites: the I heart Music tshirt and the Social Retard tshirt) and her LuLu account. I have a few of these, and I can vouch for the awesomeness of Tiny Fictions.

And my high school friend (friend from high school, not friend who is currently in high school) Elizabeth is starting up a line of natural body care products. She's just in the beginning stages right now, but if you're interested (or want to offer encouragement, lol), she has a blog up at wordpress and a facebook page. Feel free to tell her I sent you her way.

We celebrated Neville's first birthday today (he turns one on Thursday; can you believe it??) with only limited amounts of drama. I'm probably gonna do a RL picspam in the next few days. I'm sure that those of you NOT on my facebook are missing seeing pics of my kids, aren't you?

One week from now, we'll be sitting in the ridiculously hot civic center being bored by graduation speeches. Also, I'm totally gonna cry. I can't believe my teenagers are graduating!! (Well, Hallie is technically already graduated since she was homeschooled, and Chrissy graduates on Friday b/c she's at a different school, but Harley and Johnathan and Jamie graduate next week.) That wasn't the point of this entry though.

I'm not really identifying with a particular fandom these days, which is kinda weird. I mean, I still belong to fandom as a whole, and I've got my fingers in various fandom pies, lol, but I don't have a primary fandom right now.

I'm in the slow process of moving all my fics over to a fic journal. Rereading some of them makes me want to delete everything I ever wrote, haha, but some of them surprise me that I actually LIKE them. Apparently I'm not as bad as I thought?

I have a mostly written fics on my laptop for Being Human (the US version), Shameless (also the US version), and Jesse/Andrew (yes, the kitten!fic). I also have fic that I'm not writing for a fandom I'm not in, lol. Looking at the tabs that I have open on firefox right now, there's a bbb, an old SPN fic, several GK fics, one of my own GK fics, a couple fast&furious fics, and a couple original fics. Oh, and instructions on making a diaper cake. Amy's baby shower is Saturday.

Also, this time last year, I had just returned from Texas and [livejournal.com profile] asimplechord had made me start watching GK, so I had to get links for the rest of GK. Technically that makes this my anniversary of GK-do, I guess? So my plans for this evening involve rewatching GK and pretending that the Real World doesn't exist right now.

Love yall!

[livejournal.com profile] kerrikins posted this in her LJ.

Pick 10 people and give them the "you make my day" award. If you're picked, you are charged with picking 10 of your own. If you wanna do it, go for it!

[livejournal.com profile] bicrim: I love your perspective on things, your willingness to stand your ground, and the love you have for your boys.
[livejournal.com profile] ccmom: another mommy! your txts always make me smile, and I like that we can talk about kids and life and whatnot even though we don't share a lot of fandom right now.
[livejournal.com profile] trackscovered: You are adorable, and I love to laugh with you at the crazy shit you do.
[livejournal.com profile] gelsey: You are such a warm, friendly person, and you keep providing me with positive thoughts even though I know you're going through a rough patch of your own.
[livejournal.com profile] lilian_cho: I'm not gonna lie, I just keep you around for your OCD habit of tagging my entries for me! :P Just kidding. I love your unique way of looking at things and the vast amounts of creativity you have and RIVER!
[livejournal.com profile] casualyobsessed: Best little sister EVER.
[livejournal.com profile] fangs_up1: b/c I know you'll get jealous if I don't put you. And yeah, I'm probably making fun of you. <3
[livejournal.com profile] shutyourface: I know we haven't been friends long, but I LOVE YOU and I don't think a day has gone by in a long time that you haven't made me smile.
[livejournal.com profile] phaballa: You love me even though I like Ryro. :)
[livejournal.com profile] gossymer: we don't talk very often at all, but since I stole my layout and my profile codes from you, plus I use icons you made, I'm reminded of you and your awesomeness EVERY DAY.


And [livejournal.com profile] gelsey did this other meme.

Comment to this post and I will give you five subjects/things I associate with you. Then post this to your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

I was given:

1. Bandom
2. Fun text messaging
3. Your cute kids
4. A sucky job (much like mine)
5. Dresden Files, baby

I haven't gotten a chance to read my flist yet, so there may be another post tonight with linkage or something. I know that the situation in Australia is still a major concern on my flist.

Several forest fires have sprung up around here in the past couple days, and while they are relatively small and contained, they're still a cause for concern for me because my baby brother is out there fighting them. And fussing at me for worrying. Brat.

Also, my cousin Elvie wrecked his pickup earlier tonight when a deer jumped out in front of him. He says he's okay but the truck's not.

My workplace is still full of fucktarded people, but I'm making good connections through my instructors at school so hopefully I won't be at RMG too much longer.

The killer headache I have right now is definitely NOT on my happy list. How about some things that do make me happy? (as posted over at [livejournal.com profile] lists_of_happy)

Brandi is awake and seems to be doing as well as can be expected. The doctors are already talking about therapy and whatnot, which is apparently a good sign.

My week. Oh my gosh. I don't even know where to start with how much work sucked this week. My supervisor is totally made of fail. But I did get to spend two evenings this week talking to my friend Blake for hours on the phone ([livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000, do you remember blake? From ab's group?), and my weekend with [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 is a single-digit number of days away! So I'm gonna focus on the happy!

One of the comms on my flist is [livejournal.com profile] crack_van and I get some awesome multifandom recs from them. One of them I read today & I found it to be amazing and so I'm gonna rec it to yall!

A Taste of Something by [livejournal.com profile] rawumber
Criminal Minds fic, Reid/Morgan, R
Part I
Part II

Author Summary: Post Jones fic that deals with changes in Reid and Morgan’s relationship.

I have to say, this was funny and in character and everything I could as for in a Reid/Morgan fic. Not just those two either, Garcia & JJ are perfect in it as well, seriously. At one point Reid says “JJ put us in the same room because she wants us to have sex so I have to tell Garcia who will blog about it,” and I was trying to find a snippet to post but it's all so awesome I can't decide so just read it.

Yall know the pics I posted of Roaring Run? (um... there's some Here and some better waterfall ones here) Somewhere I have some awesome pics from when I was a kid, with snow on the path and icicles hanging from the rock faces and stuff. I really wanna share them but I'm afraid they're in storage along with the rest of my life. Boo.

And stolen from [livejournal.com profile] lilian_cho (to distract me from typing up fic):

I know very little about some of the people on my friends list.

Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you for your interest in my words.

Why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself? It can be any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I'll remember you.

For every random thing you share about yourself, I'll reply with a random thing about me.

Post this in your own journal and see what gems of knowledge appear.

I need picspam of Frank Iero and Brian Schechter and their tattoos. Seriously, need. Blame it on [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000. Anyone wanna help a girl out?

We're watching HP & OotP. YAY!

I told yall Jamie had her baby Friday night/Saturday morning, right? Well, my friend Chris's psycho girlfriend had a baby this morning (we're not sure if it's Chris' baby or not; waiting on paternity test results), and the head of our warehouse, his wife works in the office at work and she went to the dr for a checkup today (she's due Saturday) and the dr called Toby to go pick her up and take her to the hospital, so babies babies everywhere! Yay! Also, a very special someone on my flist is expecting. How awesome is that?!

Did I tell yall Davey tried to lie the tooth fairy? Remember how Ronnie lost his tooth and had to write a note to the tooth fairy? Well, Davey decided he was going to write a note saying he lost his tooth on the playground at school & stuck it under his pillow expecting to get money! WTF? Dude, my kid is NUTS!

Our receiving supervisor fell off the dock yesterday. He was apparently leaning out to grab a package from the DHL guy and lost his balance and fell. That's a fairly decent drop. He's okay, he broke one of his fingers & is sore & a little scraped up, but okay. Poor Jasmina, who I love to death but who never shuts up and is really easy to get wound up and is rather high strung, is the one who saw him fall. She was very freaked out; I was worried about her all afternoon yesterday.

We're finally almost caught up. I got off with only working 8.5 hours today! Yay me!

I don't get much online time anymore. After Christmas, after we get our new router, I will be. But in the meantime, lemme know if I miss anything important. And feel free to txt me whenever.

I should be working on finishing my fluffandfold fic, but I'm probably going to go write some more vampire!Gabe b/c [livejournal.com profile] ciceronian_00 is EVIL. *snuggles flist*

OH YEAH! I told yall I'd link it when my sister posted her Christmas caroling fic, so here it is!

Also, in case anyone missed it, The Life of the (Slumber) Party is the latest in the Epic Love Story 'verse over at [livejournal.com profile] tabby_and_iris. Nobody would write me bandom sleepover fic, so I had to do it myself.

Happy February 13th!! I'm totally cheating and making this the last valentine's post. If there is anyone that I missed writing a note to, I'm very sorry. But I love yall very much; my flist gives me a reason to smile everyday. Also, I need to say a special thank you to [livejournal.com profile] lilian_cho for tagging my entries and making my LJ a little less disorganized.

Today's song is my all time favorite love song. I swear, when I watch Pure Country (which is one of my favorite movies, go figure), I still tear up at the end when he sings this. So here ya go: Unconditional by George Strait

The wonderful [livejournal.com profile] wendy is challenging everyone to post a list of Five Things to be Thankful for. Of course, her challenge was issued way early this morning and it's way late. But still, here's my list:

Five Things
1. warm blankets fresh out of the dryer
2. cracktastic friends that call me on my lunch break. for no reason. from two cars over in the parking lot.
3. i get my tax refund check next week
4. brothers. like, my real brothers who do things for me and buy me valentines gifts and say they're from my boys
5. the ice that we were supposed to get tonight looks like it's gonna miss us

What about yall?

I have fic. And it's been okayed by a few of my specialest friends, so maybe it'll get posted tonight, after I put up the valentines post. There was something else I wanted to say but I cannot remember what it was. Oh well. LOVE YALL!!

Oh god, I think I'm gonna die laughing. My friend Crystal from work just called and left me a voicemail: "Hey Tabby, it's Momma. I know I'm not supposed to call you but listen to this." Then she moves the phone away and there's this strange noise that's a mix between a click and a chirp. "There really is a squirell call! I'll see you on Monday." Dude, she is SO on crack! I love her so much.

Random funny child story from today. My mom was in the kitchen making dinner and Davey goes in there and he pulls out a small saucepan and hands it to her. She was like "what's this for?" and he said "for the corn" like it was a silly question. Only my mom hadn't said anything about making corn and had just been thinking about having some with dinner. So she was like "what, are you psychic?" and davey's like "I think you mean genius." Dude, he's FIVE! He's such a goofball! We spend half our time laughing at him.

I laid around the house and did nothing today. Well, that's not exactly true, b/c I did do some laundry and some writing and I did get to txt-talk with Alli, which was awesome (even though she was shopping and not buying things for me *g*) b/c I don't usually get to talk to her on the weekends. And I got a call from Mike, which I ignored, and a call from a number I didn't recognize so I didn't pick up but it ended up being Matt. Matt is... well, he and I were really good friends in high school. Really close friends. I don't know how he got my number and I'm really not sure I want to call him back.

I know, yall care, right? :P I have comments to reply to and I really need to read my flist, but I'm gonna skip all that and do some writing tonight. But I am on Y!M if anyone wants to say hi.

And a sidestory about Brian/Sirius that is still on my to-be-written list. Anyway, even though valentines is supposed to be a happy occasion, we all know that is not always true. So, today and tomorrow you get not-so-happy drabbles. They are perfectly understandable on their own, but if you've read Just Add Tea, it's part of the backstory.
