I am so glad there was a civil rights movement in the U.S. but more importantly that I got Monday off. 🙂 Well. That isn’t totally being truthful, now is it? Since I make my schedule I can have any day I want off provided I work more other days. Still, I got Monday off! 🙂
I spent the day hanging out with Mr. T. He had the day off too. Lucky us! We watched some episodes of Firefly. I am going to be really, petuantly sad when the last show is over. I realize that I am coming to this phenomenon late but none-the-less I am now engrossed and enthralled and wondering how in the world this show isn’t made still. Screw the writers strike! Bring back Firefly!
I’m trying to remember if I did anything else on Monday. Oh, yeah, I finished my latest book. Bill Bryson’s book where he travels all over the US. Maybe it is called Lost Continent. I so could have written that book. I took both of those trips…only better. Sigh. I’m just not a very good explantory non-fiction writer. He is much funnier than I ever could be, I think. There were several times I laughed aloud. My only bit of criticism is for him to leave out the politics. But, I just roll my eyes and continue reading.
Last weekend I drove M, M’s friend D (who is afraid of me!), and CBR down to Atlanta for Gamefest 2008. It snowed on Saturday which was really neat. I got to see my parents and eat fabulous Cafe Intermezzo desserts. I stopped at Lush for some soap and a new massage bar but stumbled into a “buy 1 get 1 and buy 1 get 2 FREE” sale. That was really cool. My friend ThC came down from South Carolina. It was excellent to see him. I played 6 games of Age of Steam. Of which 3 were aborted (1 cause I’m a big baby, 1 due to rules abiguities which were breaking the game, 1 due to the massive defeat ThC was going to suffer plus my parents had arrived), 2 of which I earned 2nd place, and one of which I lost badly–like I went bankrupt TWICE!–once on the first turn and then again on the last turn. Yikes! I also was introduced to Qwirkle which I would like to play again. Attribute and CashNGuns were also played. Oh, and I played 1 round of Brass. Luckily, M liked it so we will be playing his copy on Monday.
Work is going okay. Behaviors with multiple functions are completely complex and fairly unfun. But I am enjoying working with her. It is a challenge to be sure. It is funny but I am feeling like I need to have this all solved and improved RIGHT NOW. I get myself a little bit anxious over all of it, to be honest. But then I remind myself that this takes time and effort. I anticipate, in my more rational moments, at least 6 months if not 1 year with this family. Why I am trying to fool myself into thinking I can have this fixed tomorrow is beyond me. Oh, I know. I need another client so that I don’t spend so many odd moments thinking about what I need to be or could be doing. Yeah, that’s it!
I spent tonight cleaning my house. It looks better. I think my dishwasher caught on fire. Good thing the water came on and put it out. Good thing I called the repairman yesterday to come and fix it. He should be here Monday. Now I can say, “Gee, when I called it was because there is nasty grit left on my dishes but on Friday it began smoking. I think there is something really wrong.” I love my home warranty! 😀
