Here I am! It’s time to go back to work! The weird part is that I’ve been feeling like I needed to go back to work a couple days ago. Like, needed to, but didn’t want to, it just felt like it. But here it is. And of course, because I need to go back to work today, I went to sleep very late for me, and didn’t sleep well at all!! It was hard to even walk the dogs today I couldn’t get my eyes open and focused. Instead I had vivid dreams about old friends.
So the cable thing with my grandparents turned out really well. I am sooo happy about that and continue to cross my fingers that this will be it for a while. It’s like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders but I’m still bracing for it to fall back onto me.
Ended up forgetting to trim my nails and to do my laundry. Woohoo! Hopefully I have clothes left to wear.
Made an appointment for my puppy girl to go to the vet on Monday. She’s been very interesting of late: she’s the new TimeKeeper where that used to be the longstanding duty of Gable’s. On the dot she’s there making a racket about what we’re supposed to be doing in the daily routine. She’s also been eating her food readily and demanding more. I like to tell myself that I’ve finally cracked the picky greyhound feeing code, but I’m afraid that what’s happening instead is they’re just old. In Liana’s case, I hate to think about it but maybe she’s so into time now because her time is coming to a close and she knows it. I tell myself that’s not the reason and maybe Gable just got tired of doing it after all these years. There’s a bump on her neck, free moving and not attached to muscle just skin, but it’s getting bigger and it hurts her to the point where she’ll scream and my girl is TOUGH. I’m going to ask them at the vet, but they typically don’t want to do anything and will opt to put meds on it instead. I want it out, though, and I’m sure they’ll say well we can biopsy it, but it’s $200. WTH. I was like, well, if that’s the case maybe I’ll just borrow a syringe and some lidocaine from work, buy a cyst punch and do it myself. I don’t want to, but dude.
I don’t know what’s going to happen at work now without the extra front desk help. They keep employing teenagers temporarily which doesn’t solve the problem at all. This teenager is actually their neighbor’s kid and she has a confidence about her that’s more arrogance than anything. Like a this is boring, I don’t want to be here arrogance. The doctor asked me a question about Taoism the other day (ie what it is) and whether I knew it or not I didn’t get a chance to answer because she was like, I know what it is and I didn’t bother listening to what she was saying, but I’m pretty sure Taoism and Confucianism are pretty similar. I know that it’s Chinese in origin. I managed to look it up the other day and it’s pretty much Chinese hippy stuff. Lol. More organized than that and more respectable too, but just with any religion or belief system, there are many different ways to go about it and the meaning changes per region or individual. Whatever. Doesn’t bother me. At least she’s not incompetent.
Been writing more short stories! I took a break for a while, but I’m back at it!
Man, this whole break has been go go go, despite not having any actual break plans! I rarely got to sleep in and it was so filled with stuff to do that I barely played any actual video games. Only lots of phone games which I hate to admit, but it’s the truth. Homescapes has been my new vice. That romance story app game thing started to get annoying so I stopped reading. Like I’d mentioned in the past, pure romance stories start getting old after a while because they get repetitive, unrealistic and cliché. My favorite story so far has to have been the zombie vs. alien one. That was very creative and interesting and I didn’t think I’d like it because the cover art was weird. Speaking of stories and romance, I picked up my old smut story recently and have been doing some major revision on it. It’s turning out well, but I have to decide how I want to fix the ending…almost done, but that ending is just ridiculous…haha just like those dumb romance stories. Starts out strong and then the ending is just lacking.
Buh. Now I don’t want to go back to work.
