Potluck Entry

So, in order to “slowly” earn some extra money while still hunting for a part-time position that goes with the hours I’m available and will give me enough of a boost to not feel so panicked and allow me to eat out at a Bob Evans or something every once in a while, I signed up for this thing called Hits4Pay. Basically, all I do is view some websites (most of them are viewing ads for those sites that say “Earn $500 a day working from home” which of course, you’re not obligated to do) and then I get credited 2 cents per ad. It’s brainless work, really, and I got $10 just for signing up. You don’t pay any fees, and it doesn’t take a lot of time. I won’t get rich doing this, but it’ll be nice to earn a few extra bucks a month anyway. Then I can get myself a Whopper without feeling too guilty.

If you’d like to sign up, click here:
Seriously, it’s really easy. Slow going, but better than doing nothing.

Five Happy Things:
1. The LJ community. Oh my goodness. What adorable icons!! :)
2. Books, glorious books!
3. A certain little kitty who has made herself comfortable on my lap.
4. Working on revising the ZB style guide.
5. Dinner in the oven. It smells so amazing!

I suppose that’s all for now. :) See ya!

Sunday Night

Another weekend has passed. Went and got Aidan from my mom’s yesterday. He was being as silly and cute and sweet as ever. Getting back into mommy mode is always a challenge after these long breaks, though.

Yesterday, I finished reading Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, and now I’m reading Pretties. Specials is ready for me to pick up at the library, so I’m going to do that Tuesday. They’re very intense books, hard for me to blow through like I do with most YA novels. Interesting stuff, though.

Today, I watched The Covenant. It was predictable, but the guys were hot. Not a favorite, but it was enough to pass the time. I had a pretty lazy Sunday. Reading, resting, sitting in the glider while the electric heater blew directly on me, curled up in a blanket. It was restful. I didn’t get bored until the middle of Family Guy this evening.

I blew a fuse yesterday evening. Or tripped the circuit breaker. Whatever it is. I was typing away on the computer, enjoying the really warm air from the electric heater on my toes when PHOOOM. Half the apartment went dark. “Nice,” I muttered. Then I noticed night lights glowing in the other room. I knew then that I’d tripped a circuit. I fixed it and vowed to never put the electric heater on II again. This place can handle I, but not II.

We got a lot of snow, so driving tomorrow is something I am not looking forward to. Everything is prepared for work tonight, so tomorrow morning, I won’t have to rush, and I will probably need extra commute time. The freezing drizzle has me really nervous. That’s the dangerous, scary stuff. I hope the roads are okay by the time rush hour hits.

Lots going on in my mind. Just a lot of thinking I need to do. But scared to start muddling through it all. And paperwork. I’m so gosh darn sick of paperwork. Seems like there is always a problem and people want to point fingers instead of owning up and taking accountability and getting things resolved. I just know I’d like to RELAX fully and completely for once, but I can’t because there is always something to worry about, some issue to deal with.

And God do I need a massage. One of those ninety-minute ones from Gentle Wind by Heather Lane. I just need some Reiki, Swedish and deep tissue. Mmmm. I’m all tied up in knots and it hurts.

But anyway, before I go, here are a couple of surveys.
