Wah. (Or how I am indulging my whiny side tonight!)

I’m tired of being unemployed.

I’m sleepy.

I’m hungry.

I don’t wanna cook.

I’m bored.

I’m uninspired.

I don’t wanna clean house.

I just told off a recruiter for not reading properly.

I’m depressed because my swimming pool went away today.  Who cares that it wasn’t mine, they didn’t have to drain it!

So all in all, good day!


Ten small things that I was thankful for today

  1. I have a roof over my head and an air conditioner that works when it is 99+ outside
  2. I have a next-door neighbor that lets me come dunk in her backyard above-ground pool when it is 99+ outside
  3. I have a former coworker that has a chainsaw and didn’t mind coming over when a mutual friend asked him to give me a hand, especially when he was paid in beer
  4. I haven’t seen said coworker in over four years and he still came over
  5. The trees (well, branches the size of small trees) that came down while I was on vacation are now in small piles all by the trashcan thanks to the chainsaw of former coworker
  6. Former coworker has quoted me on removing my dead tree, offered to till and redo my backyard in September, and said he might come over with a mower some day this week in addition to possibly removing the remainder of the debris that is in my front yard and slowly filling the trash canister
  7. Big huge work conference seemed to go off without a hitch overall, and the parts that I was in charge of seemed to go very smoothly.
  8. Made a friend laugh by spoofing something we had just read and coming up with the Ten House Rules for any guests in my home
  9. Mom took me to lunch today and I had enough for dinner (only I forgot to bring it home so it is really going to be lunch)
  10. Caffeine Free Diet Coke

This week has been brought to you by the letter C!

So, yeah, this week has been absolutely crazy. You know how it is with a short week at work, you never know what’s going to happen, and then I’m on vacation next week so it’s always insane.

Sunday was fine, I guess, I started off at church, was supposed to meet a friend for a movie who ditched so I got a bunch of errands done, dealt with HP support in India and the ever so unhelpful man named Steve who said his supervisor would be in on Tuesday to help me, and then did some work around the house.  Blah day.

Monday was normal.  That’s the end of that one.

Tuesday I worked until 1, then I had to stop by the store to make a return, go by B & NoMH’s house to feed the cat/fish because they are on vacation as well, stop by the library to pick up a book I had on hold, stop by the hospital because I had to get my weekly injections (yippee!), come by the house to let the dog out and scarf a PB&J and then brush my teeth before I made it to the dentist on the other side of town by 330.  Then after finding out that I have ANOTHER cavity (I swear I had perfect teeth until I was 27, I don’t know what the hell is going on) I had a hair appointment further across town at 430.  Hairdresser was running late but I still managed to get out of there and get to the used bookstore by 530 which is when they stop taking in books (I’m going on vacation, remember?  Continue reading
