The Rambling Thoughts of a True Neurotic

Mood: Relaxed

Filed under: Relaxed — September 22, 2013 @ 11:39 pm

Today was a pretty relaxed day. Thanks to the two beers and two glasses of wine I had yesterday I slept until almost 10am. I must have slept well last night as I woke up feeling refreshed and didn’t feel tired at all today.

I spent a good portion of today on the computer. I got caught up with writing book reviews and other random stuff and next thing I knew it was the end of the day. Funny how that happens sometimes. I did however manage to catch up with all the dishes and then I made the bed and picked up the area on my side of the bedroom. Nothing huge or earth shattering but it feels good to have that done.

Gatsby, one of our two cats, managed to hunt down two animals today. Early in the afternoon he ran into the house with some furry in his mouth and I nearly screamed. It was a field mouse. Dead. Poor thing. Then later this evening he brought back a frog who was still alive, barely. This time he left it on the porch then proceeded to drive us nuts until we opened the door to discover the poor creature. I love my cats, but I just hate when they kill innocent creatures.

Tomorrow is going to be an early day for Hubby and I. Hubby is scheduled to talk to a career counselor through the VA…all the way in Albany (a two hour drive).  I hope that this meeting will be helpful. Hubby has been out of work for close to three months now and it’s been hard. So far I’ve been able to cover our expenses without too much trouble but it doesn’t give me much money left over for cushion money, putting money into our savings account or you know, just money to have for having fun once in awhile. Luckily I’m low maintenance and as long as I can afford to feed my book habit I’m satisfied. Still, I’ve been itching to do some traveling other then driving to South Jersey to visit my folks.

After that it’s back to work. I have a fairly normal schedule this week. Not doing another four day in a row stint. And only two sleep overs instead three. The last week nearly killed me with those fire drills…but next weekend will be hectic. We’re driving back down to  New Jersey for the second time this month. Last time it was to celebrate my niece’s first birthday…this time around it’s to see my brother who will be home for ten days after being at boot camp and AIT training for the US Army. He’s been gone since February. I have not seen him since January. We are having a party for him and his wife as they did not have much of a celebration when they got married. So it’ll be an exhausting weekend, but hopefully a good one.  It’ll be hard to leave though as my brother, his wife and my adorable niece will then be moving to Georgia.
