Meh, I should be doing. . . Reading/outlining of text, scholarship essay and app, CV, letter writers cheat notebook, cleaning, thinking about getting ready for work and going in early. But I am not–and I am on vacation, so it’s OK. I can take a break every once in awhile too.
I have to brave pre-holiday WalMart today 😦 WalMart is never awesome, but especially not between Halloween and Valntine’s Day. I hope it is not terribly busy and stupid (of course it will be). I need computer ink and some stocking stuffers for Cool. I like to buy ALL the school supplies I will need for a semester, b/c once classes start-Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That.
Cool had taken 3 vacation days (these next 3 days) when we were supposed to go to the lighting ceremony and dog sledding at The German. I am so mad at her irresponsibility! I NEED to guide some sled dogs and we have been planning to do it since we moved here. It’s not that easy to get time off work, and I managed it. But then she got a really, really dumb speeding ticket, which took all of our trip money and we can’t go this year. But she didn’t UN-DO the vacation days–which I think is a little wasteful. Especially since we will want to take a scouting trip to Colorado before we move there. . . But none-the-less, what’s done is done. And maybe I still have tomorrow off of work–because I also asked for the day off way back in the spring before my schedule changed. I’ve heard nothing of it, but I’ll check today. That would be a cool surprise. At any rate, work or no, we can still do fun things in the day/evening since Cool doesn’t have to leave in the 3s for swing shift.
That does put a bit of a kink in my productivity. But I guess I’ll have time to do some things even w/the fun distraction of Cool being home. And I guess if not, it’s not the end of the world. I always have more goals then time. That’s good though. When you run out of things to do, there’s no hope/life left. When did my posts become snippets of my internal ramblings and struggles instead of themes and actual topics? I might go back to a more structured approach, but for now I seem to have things to say.
In other news, I caught up in my music listing. Now I’m going through and putting best songs on the end of the year list. And I’m in second quarter for that–there’s a lot of good stuff. Unfortunately (for my pruposes) music is more substancial and the average song length has increased to 4 min. It takes a long time to get through all the songs that way. It’ll be a surprise which artists appear most often. I’m getting excited to write all my end of year blogs: Best music, best moments, resolutions, etc. . .
Well, I’m back to thinking about impending work.
