It’s Thursday so I thought I would dash off a quick post. What quick posts and Thursdays have to do with each other, I don’t know. Good thing this doesn’t have to make sense!
So, it’s pouring down rain, as usual. I’m only mentioning that so that those of you to the east of me will know that more storms are coming. Sorry about that. It’s been a wet winter, that’s for sure.
What’s going on around here, in a non-meteorological way? Well, let’s see…
Last weekend T went to
with her sister and mother. I think they
had a good time but it’s hard to tell because she came home very cranky. It was the first time in a decade that their
mom had been anywhere outside the local area.
The daughters felt pretty good about getting that to happen. And then they badgered her to stop playing
the slot machines and go for a walk, of all things. Ha!
She was determined to win back all of her nickels! As I said, I think they had a good time…
In the further travel adventures of T, she and her sister will be heading to
Hawaii for a
week this month. Fun! Her sister won a trip for two through her
work and is taking her little sister. I
think that’s pretty nice. I hope they
have a wonderful time and that T doesn’t come home cranky this time. Lol.
So, what do I do when the partner is away? Enjoy the quiet! It’s a break from the tv, which I need so much. I did go to a friend’s house on Saturday for dinner and socializing. That was pleasant. I also got a bunch of stuff done around the house that I’d been meaning to get to, and that was satisfying. I’m starting to plan some things for her next trip, too.
On the work front, I’ve got 1 year, 4 months, 3 weeks and two days to go until I retire. Woo hoo! I won’t bore you with the work argy-bargy… suffice it to say that it’s work and it’s tiresome.
I don’t know if any of you are planning to watch the big football game this weekend. Ordinarily I would be excited for that. This year I dislike both teams and can’t bring myself to care. Well, I hope that
wins because I really don’t like the quarterback for Carolina. But, I’m not keen on Denver,
either, so… it’s a big ‘who cares’ for
me. I think we’ll go for a hike
instead. (Weather depending)
I feel like there’s no other good news to report. I don’t want to start the day with negativity, so I’ll keep all of the bullshit to myself. Have a great Thursday, everyone!
