Sunday night

Here it is late Sunday night and bedtime already. Where did the weekend go?

It was a very full weekend. Slept late both days, which meant as soon as I was up Saturday, I had to get ready to go to the first birthday party for our nephew, who is going to be by far the giant of his family, going by how he's growing up. He's a good-natured kid and all the new toys which drove his 3-year-old sister into a jealous rage were far less interesting than a cool green balloon, which made all things good (and said sister kept trying to take away from him). Not a bad middle of the day. Came home to get back to work on scraping the kitchen floor and making a very dense and rich pumpkin-spice cake with brown sugar frosting, which I think is a success but was a bit complex to make (not a speedy dessert). Watched Othello, which I enjoyed (realized I never had had a chance to watch it all the way through before) and some Blackadder II, always fun.

Today scrapped almost all of the floor, whoopee, and gave myself a blister, but it's a Blister of Success and so does not hurt. Did not get any writing done this weekend, but have made progress in the last week. Although I think it may be a trifle wordy, I like what I'm doing and re-writes can be done once I get a little further. Of course, I think only two people read the first part, but still, that gives me hope. The mere fact that I'm getting something WRITTEN gives me hope.

Hopefully the "adoptive parents" of this dog will come and take her away soon. She is the cutest little thing, really, but she doesn't understand the word "no" at all and she pulls clothes off the line and gets into EVERYTHING and the back porch looks like a hurricane hit. I apparently don't have the patience for dogs, though I love 'em like I do all furry critters. I guess I expect them to be like cats, you know, show 'em the litter box and that's the extent of the training needed... (Of course, Cairo also doesn't seem to understand the meaning of the word "no," but it's easier to grab him and move him.)

Today I kept seeing a commercial that said, "We know you work for more than just a paycheck," and I thought, "nope, that's pretty much it." So it's back for that paycheck tomorrow. Hopefully I can get this room CLEAN here in the next few weeks. I'm really going to throw it all out. Really.

(chuckle) I had the same response to that commercial.

I think I also prefer cats to dogs because they're easier to grab and move. Also, there's generally less drooling. And when a cat jumps into your lap, the lower organs in your body aren't crushed. Dogs are nice when they're quiet and well-behaved and belong to someone else.
