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.
