Wow, it’s pretty quiet around here after our chat the other night eh? What’s everyone up to?
Thanks for the input on the waitressing gig. It really put things into perspective for me. It helps me to weigh opinions before making decisions, because I can be so indecisive. I’m going to apply tomorrow. Hopefully, I can get the job because I really need the money. My life is going to be a blur w/ two jobs and my social life. Yikes…
Talked to my FF this morning. He was at a WA airport on his way to SLC and then to Maine. He seemed pretty cheerful to not be working. I was a little bitchy and irritable at first because I’m so impatient these days about our situation, but improved after talking to him for a bit and joking around. I told him I’m going out on the lake today w/ an old friend (male) that just moved here. He remarked that I sure do have a lot of guy friends and I could tell he was a little irritated by it. I said yeah, I guess I do, but I always have. Guys are easy to hang around with. And so what if he is the slightest bit jealous? I think a little healthy jealousy can be a good thing, right? Give him some motivation to get here as quickly as possible. Maybe I’m just being petty. But so what. I’ve been beyond patient this summer. My patience is starting to wear thin…not much longer.
I reminded him that my b’day in 2 weeks fall on his 2 days off. That is a nice fantasy but it is so close before he is finished that I doubt it is worth it. He might be completely done by then and have to go back to Alaska on their dime before coming here.
For those of you that read Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver, did you read The Poisonwood Bible by her as well? It is SOOO good. I just started Ghosts of the Fireground by Peter Leschak and am really enjoying it so far. I really like his writing. I swear, between my computer use and fire stuff always being on the screen and my fire related books always laying around, my friends must think I’ve come undone. But that’s why I have you guys…
My roller derby bout is this Sunday. It’s the semi-finals. My mom, dad, aunt, uncle and 82 yr old Grandma will all be there among a ton others. Should be a lot of fun, although I’m gonna be really nervous. This game determines if we play in the top two at Championships or bottom two. Ugh…
Y’all take care,
