Too lazy for a title

B stayed home today to work on the downstairs, and he’s ripping out more than intended….the place is a mess! It seems he rips out one layer of crap, and there’s another one under it or next to it. He thinks he found where the water has been coming in down there, which is a relief–that was getting so bad, I cringed every time it rained. But with the mess downstairs, I had to move the cat boxes upstairs, and now it smells like cat poo up here. Fun! If Lexi wasn’t so stupid, I’d have toilet trained them ages ago (yes, you can toilet train cats!).

B also worked on my computer–got rid of Norton and installed a program called Windows Live OneCare that is so cool! It’s cleaning up my ‘puter as we speak. After it’s done cleaning (I wish it did houses…), I’ll finally back up all my files. Bad greentara! I had a dream the other night my computer crashed, so I’m itching to get that done, especially my iTunes stuff and work stuff.

My phone interview went very well. B listened in on part of it and said the only “bad” thing he heard was I said “Um” too much, which I always do during interviews. Hopefully I’ll do better during my sit-down interview the day after tomorrow! Yep, they are fast-tracking it because they actually want someone to start in like two weeks, which is crazy fast, but I’m very excited that I’m still in the running! BTW, the job is a Massage Therapy Instructor at Rasmussen College. If I get this I’ll be a college instructor!!!! Keep your fingers crossed for me….

On Saturday, B was a total wank to me, and I went to bed in tears. The next night, I confronted him about it, and we had a nice talk; he even promised we’d go out on a date this coming weekend. We had a counseling session today, and that went GREAT. I finally understand what he’s trying to accomplish with his “need for space”, and it’s OK. He still loves me and wants our marriage to work….that’s all I needed to know. Things are looking up đŸ™‚

My hairdresser gave me a sweater of hers to fix. She loves the sweater but never wears it because the neck is too tight, so I told her I’d give it a go. I just hope I don’t fuck it up completely!

I have one skein left for Lady Eleanor. I was going to do the cool fringe on it, but I don’t think this yarn will work too well with the fringe (it’s a very loose twist), plus when I think about it, I hate fringe. It’s a pain in the ass. So more knitting….hopefully it’ll be done this weekend. And maybe I’ll dust off the old camera and actually have some photos to post.

Random thoughts

Not too much to say today

…..Work is busy, which I love, and will take it when I get it!

….I dropped off my nursing application yesterday (and I’m not sure how I feel about that right now)

….I sent my resume off today for Dream Job, and prompty freaked out and had to take an anti-anxiety pill

….I’m almost done with the Lady Eleanor stole–finally

….Tomorrow will be three years since Mom died. I think I may take myself out for Mexican food tomorrow night

….I think that’s all for now!

Finally feeling better

Man, I don’t know what I caught, but it was awful! I have never coughed so much or so hard in my life, and not being able to take any (liquid) cough suppressants makes it oh so much more fun.

I am getting ready to apply for a kick-ass dream job in the next few days. If I get this job, no need for nursing school. Don’t want to jinx it so I’m not saying more, but send me good mojo!!

Sick day

So, the cough I’ve had the past two days has turned into a cold. I had to cancel two one-hour massages today, plus my 30-day evaluation at the nursing home. I also canceled my yarn trip to Madison with Linda tomorrow (BOO!), and I’m planning on calling off the meeting with the nursing app lady tomorrow AM. Just gonna sit, knit, watch TV, and be a bed for Lexie. B didn’t do anything to try to help me this morning, then left for work two hours early (when I called him on it as he was walking out the door, he was all “Oh yeah, I have to go in early today and tomorrow”). Whatev. At least I booked my flight last night, and have that to look forward to in May.

Ready for April

Gah, this month can’t go by fast enough! I met with my massage client (who is also career counselor at the college FTW) about getting my resume polished up, plus he needed to teach me about this thing called a cover letter that I have never had to know about before. So now I have that to work on. Also (and actually should be first up) is my Personal Statement to include in my nursing application, which I think is such a waste of time and I don’t wanna but just in case I should just suck it up and do it cuz you never know for absolute sure what the hell is going to happen such is my life story right now. So I’ll probably bust that out this weekend. Should probably do it for my meeting with the nursing app lady Friday morning, but screw it. All the other stuff I have to show her is awesome. The TEAS test I had to take two weeks ago? I scored an 88% overall (85 or higher is exceptional), and I scored a 95% in Reading (92 or higher for exceptional). The ladies in the testing center saw my scores and gave me hugs đŸ™‚

I will be headed to AZ the first weekend in May. B is still kinda pissy that the Las Vegas trip isn’t getting used, but his problem, not mine. I thought at the very least it would be good for us to get away and spend some time together (and even some time there apart, whatev), but he has this aversion to anything involving spending time with me right now.

We went to see the counselor on Monday, and it went pretty well. I got a lot of stuff off my chest about him, and he had the nerve to say my stuff “wasn’t that big a deal”, etc. The counselor looked at him and said point blank “So you’re saying that her issues aren’t as important as your issues?” and he fucking said YES. I almost walked out on him right there. Ass. She handled it very well, and I’m looking forward to my individual session with her on Monday. He’s going Wednesday, then we have a joint session the following week.

Stitch-In was at my house yesterday, and we had lots of fun. The cats didn’t know what to do with so many people in the house…at one point Lexie was on the back of the couch and started to walk down the front of the lady (Kathy) that was sitting in “my” spot (to lay on her lap), thinking it was me. Kathy stiffened up, and Lexie froze, mid-step, realizing it wasn’t me. She retreated post haste and hid in the kitchen for the majority of the evening. Everyone liked my cake, which reminds me there’s some left in the fridge….bye!
