High Heel Mileage

Cliche of the day: unemployed & writing at Starbucks. 

At least I’m not a “starving” artist. Hello, carbs and delicious cream cheese. 

I haven’t experienced this kind of creative bliss in a long time. Before I started taking care of my grandma, these quasi-hipster trips to Starbucks were a normal thing for me. 

Then life happened. 

And true to form: I should be writing and yet here I am blathering on Tumblr. But, hey, writing, right? So I’m counting it. 

What am I writing, you ask? (Shhhh… let’s just pretend you asked.) Mostly confusing drivel courtesy of a fiction writing class and their interesting prompts… But I am having fun with it, so I guess there’s that.

I ran into an old coworker from rehab at Starbucks today. Keep in mind I live an hour from the facility and a run-in was highly unlikely.

Then, my former supervisor called and asked if I’d moved yet. When I said “in a couple weeks” he asked me if I’d like to come back for a few weeks.

Cut it out, Universe. I’m not going back to rehab.

Just say no, Amy.

*laughs at own ridiculous drug prevention joke*

Filed under no way in hell I was already there hell is located in that unorganised building poor Amy Winehouse now I know how she felt minus the addiction part tried to make me go back to rehab and I said hell no no no

lifeinsteps asked: Hey Amy, you mentioned a while back a name change organization that you used to simplify things. What was the name of it and did everything work out like it was supposed too? Thanks!!

(Publishing for the greater good. Hope it’s helpful!)

Hey there! I used http://www.marriagenamechange.com/

Everything worked out perfectly. All it really does is pre-fill forms for you after you answer a series of questions. Things like driver license and social security cards you still have to make a trip for and show up in person. It was helpful for passport renewal, taxes/IRS, etc. Overall I’d still recommend it - it helps you list and tackle all the things you’d normally overlook when changing your name over.

There are several other sites, theknot; msnowmrs, etc that all provide the same service. Comes down to how much you want to pay for it and which site you like the best.

Good luck!

I’m a huge fan of dishes that look complicated and taste great but actually only take a few ingredients and even fewer minutes to make.

*Whole wheat pasta & pesto with garlic
*Whole wheat pasta with chicken, tomatoes, peppers and onions
*Tuna-stuffed devil eggs with gherkin, mayonnaise and mustard. Paprika, pepper and parsley garnish.

Reds game
Outdoor movies with the nephews
All the reading
And even more drinking.

Don’t let these photos fool you. Yes, I’ve had some awesome summer moments, but this photo set could aptly be named:

"How I’m distracting myself from being away from the husband. Because I’m about to lose my mind and start calling the office in Sheffield and beg them to hurry up because this whole LDM thing is ridiculously ridiculous. But I’m hanging in there because really, what’s the alternative? There isn’t one."

Also known as the longest photo set name ever.

Goes to Half Price Books to find book on minimalism (Everything That Remains, specifically), completely forgets to look for book, buys three cookbooks instead: a typical Amy memoir.

I posted the list on the left on Facebook a few days ago. Today, I see InStyle got the memo on #4. 
I will never jump on the sneakers with everything bandwagon. Can’t do. Won’t do.
