I cannot seem to shut my brain off or at a minimum fine tune it, so that I can organize my thoughts. As much as I try to focus of something, I’m distracted by another thought or thing. So, with all that said, here’s what’s on my mind:
The Boy is moving some of his stuff home this weekend. I’m excited to see him, but not excited to see all of the crap he’ll be bringing with him. I don’t know how he has managed to accumulate so much stuff in such a short period of time of being away at school.
Speaking of The Boy, he got the great summer job I told you about a couple of weeks ago. He’s disappointed it’s not in cemetery maintenance, but he’s happy (and so am I) that he’ll be earning $12.50 per hour.
J had a phone interview for a new job yesterday. Secretly I hope he doesn’t get it. I know I’m awful, but I think he’s making the wrong decision by wanting to go to this company. I believe he’s wanting out of his current job so bad, he’s not looking at the big picture and what he’ll be giving up by doing so. I have more than enough experience with jumping from one bad job to another. I’ve expressed my concerns and regardless of the outcome, I’ll be supportive because that’s what he’d do for me. I don’t have to like it though.
With great sadness and a lot of tears, I had our cat euthanized yesterday. He was 18 and had just been diagnosed with an untreatable kidney disease. Obviously it wasn’t easy, but it was the humane thing to do and I know I did the right thing. I swear the only thing keeping him alive the past few years was the fact that he liked to chew on J’s computer electrical cords and the low voltage current kept jumpstarting his heart.
Since fish don’t count, we are now a pet free household. I’m not sure how I feel about that, but I’m not in any hurry to get any more animals – at least not for awhile. I do know that I won’t miss the gargantuan sized fur balls blowing throughout the house no matter how much I sweep and vacuum.
It snowed again yesterday and we had freezing rain overnight. I’ve said it before and will say it once more – living in the north stinks, except during the Spring and Summer months.
On the upside, the weather may have turned the corner for today - it was sunny and warm. Let's hope it lasts until November.
