the life and times of Me

We are slowly getting our stuff back, it sounds like tomorrow will be the big day. There will be bookcases and lots of other stuff I have been told. I am hoping for yarn, of course, and books.

In recent news Dot made a bold escape from the hotel room and remains at large, search parties are going out daily but if you see a rouge calico prowling around give Cyn a call.

Last week Cookie was missing, we assumed that he had succumbed to the allure of our second floor balcony and gone walkabout. We worried and looked for him but no Cookie. When we came home from doing laundry we found a sooty outline of a cat on our hearth and Cookie looking a little dingy. Turns out he was up the chimney. Plus we now have a clean flue, minus we had a very very dirty cat. He was not happy with the bath that followed.

Today my paycheck failed to appear for the second day in a row. This is not a happy thing. Called work, called the apartment and called the post office. No Joy, work can reissue my check on thursday and overnite it to me. once again I say Not happy. I had some not so evil plots I was using my money this week to finance, you know the kind involving chocolate? Hopefully it wil resolve itself soon.

Fire! best excuse ever!

So I know I am always making excuses but honestly I have the best excuse ever this time. Fire!

For the 4th of july we had BBQ and a house fire, no relation. This resulted in us spending a week in hotels and a week at a friends before finding an apartment to live in so I could go back to earning a living.

All in all this has turned out to be for the best. We had not planned to move out until we had a car, but we are enjoying it being just the two of us again.

The down side is no stuff, the insurance company has all our belongings and has not got them back to us yet. :( also no car, and if friends and family aren't tired of us asking for rides I am sure they soon will be. The last issue is a set of stairs I have to haul things up when our furniture is released (or I get groceries). hot stairs. Hot steep stairs (cause the hot bears repeating.)

And did I mention that currently Texas is hotter than hells hinges (to quote one of Indra's news people) and honestly I don't want to even think about going outside.

ruff times

weather has moved in an out and it makes my head hurt. And really I just want a better job so I have more money, so we can get our own car and house and I have my own bed/place to hide in. Cause I really want to hide in bed today. With covers pulled up and nothing to bother me.

I have a whole season of Project Runway to watch today (Indra willing) and plenty of knitting to keep me occupied. If I could find hot and cold running nibbles I would be a happy camper.

Anouther Day, or Are people really getting stupider?

I have had a run of stupid people the last couple days, I know we make jokes about them breeding but I really believe it is true. The stupid people already outnumber us and we are doing nothing to stop it.

So I am going to read a book and avoid as much stupid as I can by staying off the internet where the Stupidest Stupid lives and hopefully my IQ will regain a couple points while I sleep.

Attack of the Blahs

I've got a bad case of the blahs, I have been blaming the weather but I am thinking it is depression and well the blahs. No concentration, everything is a bit fuzzy thought wise and no energy, add in assorted I am old body aches and all I want to do is sleep until everything is better. To bad life doesn't work that way.

its been a loooong time

I have not posted in a long time and I apologize for that. the economy hit and I lost my job and my house in quick succession. I have moved in with friends and after a year found a job (half the pay of the old one) spent a lot of last year depressed out of my mind but I am getting better. I may even start posting again.
