My boring life...

I had my first bout with "Holy Fuck, I'm boring" today while I was stalking some friends on FB. They had a brief conversation about crazy lives and I realized I'm not willing to go through a lot of that bs any more.

I'm not sure it's that I'm boring, I was always on the laid-back side but I realized that I no longer have the option of partying like I did once upon a time. True, I rarely pursued that option, but still it was an option.

Week 15

So Squishy is almost 4 inches long now. I think I can feel movement but I'm not really sure. I'm not as tired s I have been but I'm still hungry all the time.

I'm just not used to these effing mood swings. This morning I hated my job and wanted nothing more than to quit and go back to working in a restaurant. Now I'm doing ok. I think I'd rather have my old job, but I'm getting by.

Crazy Cats for a Crazy Cat Lady

I am watching one of my cats go insane. She's normally a bit off the wall, but something has really fucked her up this morning. She's repeatedly tried, and failed, to jump up on Husband's desk.

Ok, time for a real post

Happy Canada Day! Our lovely country is 141 today. I am celebrating by sleeping in, doing laundry and maybe going to the beach or the park. I think we'll be able to see the fireworks from our window, but I know Doodles and C will have a great view. The fireworks are right across the street from their house.

The new job is going well but I'm still not sure sales is for me. I like dealing with people, I like getting out and getting to know my town but I don't like selling things. I've started noticing that now that I have to pay attention to the paper that local journalism leaves something to be desired. Most of the stories that come from our newsroom are not hard-hitting investigations. They are mostly soft, local interest stories about neighbors helping people around the world, or minor grievances. I keep me criticism to myself but it's there. Most of the national news and the international news is written by the wire services. I know that's how it's done in most of the smaller towns, even some cities use wire services.
