Well we finally made it again, thank goodness! I got a confirmation e-mail that the home loan has officially closed, so the place is legally mine now. Woop Woop!
Work is yet another busy day. I’ve been going from the time I got here and probably won’t stop for a while. At least I hope not I am in the downward spiral of the day. Looking very forward to quitting time. Going home to have a can of Steak N Shake Chili and pick up my next Man calendar, which is waiting on my front porch, according to UPS. Speaking of UPS I need to go buy a replacement (Uninterruptable Power Supply) for the modem and router. The one I had shot craps. I can probably get a replacement battery but it’s a very low grade model and I think replacing it, if the price is right would be the way to go. Plus I’d like to get a 2nd one for the TV in the living room, it will just be peace of min, but again the price has to be right. Amazon is my friend but I would rather go local if I can. So will be checking into that.
Last night I am sitting comfortably at the table eating Ben & Jerry's when my mother calls. Remember my weekend plans, well she tried to wreck them. I have to take her to the lab because she says they won’t release the results of her blood work that was done over 2 weeks ago to the doctor. Someone isn’t communicating correctly but okay. So I am going to pick her up and cart her to and fro … then I am leaving town and going to head for the buffet. I will be charging up my portable speaker tonight so that I can listen to NPH or music while i am on the way.
I find it very entertaining to listen to NPH read to me, it’s more like a conversation and it is comforting and enjoyable. I still want to nod off on the way home but just not as much. I really wish I had someone to go home to, I mean besides the cats. Being single and alone has it’s advantages but having company does too, plus if dinner were waiting for me I could be that much more productive with the little time I spend at home during the week. Ah well, maybe some day that will happen. Still no luck with online dating but maybe that is for the best, I am just not sure. I would like to skip the games and just move straight into the relationship part where you can tell if it is or if it isn’t going to work.
All of the children are doing well, sucking up as much attention and food as they can get out of me. Sleeping is a chore since now more of them want to move in to my room. I let one of the girls stay plus the two boys and I pretty well have a full house. Right now I am longing for a nice hot and relaxing shower and then to dry off, watch TV and relax …. slowly falling asleep. I had no set agenda, but my mother has changed that and now I have to get up early.
The big thing with mom is well I will be driving my late partners vehicle. It needs some road time, because I never go anywhere with it, other than short around town trips. That is not what a vehicle was made for. Get on the open road and fly, that is what it was meant for. Bringing that vehicle will cause the whole conversation about selling it to her. I really don’t want to go there. She also told me that she would take me out to eat afterwards as a thank you. I told her that I already had plans. So hopefully things go well and I can move on.
So this is the big time change weekend, Saturday night fall back 1 hour. Ah, an extra hour of sleep that will be nice. It will feel odd for a while but I will get used to it. Sort of like the cold weather, temps have really dropped here. Time to break out the long sleeve shirts, sweaters and the like. Ugh, I hate long sleeves. This year to Thanksgiving I am thinking of wearing a bow tie. I have always wanted to wear one and my late partner has always talked me out of it. They are usually reserved for the preppy upper class or the people who are just plain pompus, at least that has been my experience. I am neither of those, but would like to try one on and see what kind of reaction I get. Who knows maybe my prince charming will see me and life will fall into place. I will be wearing blue shirt so I was thinking either pink or red. What’s your opinion? Normally I just wear the shirt and some nice pants, like I am going to work. I leave the tie behind because it is just plain stuffy but I think I may be okay with a bow tie.
The children sure are curious about my backpack, they wonder why I am lugging it around everywhere and what is so important in it. Shy Girl was really giving it the once over this morning. I warned her that I was headed in her direction because I had to leave. She ran away from it like it was a bomb. That is just her personality. Ah new month, claw trimming will be coming up soon. Oh joy!
Super excited the house deal is done. For giggles and something to look forward to I checked on Bankruptcy and looks like the hardship discharge will be able to be requested around April of next year, unless I happen to make a lump sum payment. Time will tell. For now it’s play it by ear. Talk with you peeps later. Have a great weekend!
