What I Feel Like Some Days
When we are not behaving, according to the World Of Pearl, what she does is hides under the bed with her feet sticking out (so you still know she's there) and she whines hysterically. Not behaving pretty much includes any activity not involving the aforementioned party. It is only funny for about 3 minutes. Then as I race around the house looking for my shoes, making sure the cat is out and the dog is in, I yell at her as I pass by - CUT IT OUT. She does for about 30 seconds and then starts in again - she knows I don't have time to do her in so what the hell? It's her party and she'll cry if she wants to. I have to say it's been awhile since I've had a day that made me feel like this - things are very quickly picking up at my new office and I have no doubt it will spin out of control on occasion, but for the time being I'm enjoying the challenge of it all. We went out for a goodbye dinner for the director (she's been promoted) and it was a lot of fun. It's nice to start a job where you know everyone already. Anyhow, I'm looking forward to this weekend and doing nothing - we have to catch up on cleaning the house, David has been getting the other house finished up, knitting of course, maybe a few scary movies - who knows! The possibilities are endless but I am not - too much going on and I need a real break. Or at least a couple of low key, nothing doing days. Anyhoo, the weather has been turning sneaky colder, David is dreading winter already but I am cheering it on - good bye summer and don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out! I'm eyeballing pumpkins and thinking candy corn, I'm looking for my winter clothes and plotting out a bulky sweater to knit. Let the leaves fall, commence the hot cocoa and the roaring fire - Fall is on the way and I'll be raising my hot toddy and cheering it in!
