The end of another week draws near. Tomorrow is my last day at the law firm where I’m temping. I really enjoy working there, and I get a lot of compliments on my work. I’ve asked them to consider me when they go to staff the position permanently, if I am still on the market. They treat their employees well, and that makes me want to perform well.
Adam got a new computer and gave me his old MacBook. I spend most of my time on the computer Andy got me for Christmas because I’m definitely more familiar with it and the way it works, but I’m having fun playing with iPhoto on the Mac! So far I’ve mostly been using it for photo manipulation.
We’re cat sitting this week. After a rocky start, Ophelia and Charlie are relaxed and making themselves at home. They’re eating, using the litter box, and letting Adam and me pet them. Aidan is terrified of them because they hissed a lot when they first got here. Ophelia reminds me of Lucy with her temperament and the way she acts: timid but curious. She’s a lot more vocal than Lucy, though.
I miss having more than one cat around the place. I know that Crookshanks will be welcoming to a new kitten. I just want to be sure that I’m ready to start again. The thought of going through another pet death scares me. But the thought of not having another kitty makes me sad. Is this normal?
I’m slowly going through Cycle 10 of America’s Next Top Model. I watched most of it while it was on TV, but Adam taped the marathon for me at the beginning of June. So I’m watching it again. The episode with the music photo shoot is on now.
I just added a couple of pages to the site. I decided to reinstate the 101 in 1001 program, redone completely, and I also made a page called 50 smiles.
I got my wedding dress! Well, it’s not a bridal gown or anything, but it’s a really pretty dress that I actually can’t describe, but you’ll see pix soon enough. Only 17 more days!!
I am starting to get the urge to scrapbook again. I haven’t made a scrapbook in almost three years! It’s been a long time. I still have most of my stuff, I have tons of pictures, so I should make albums. The thing is, I’m not sure what to make them of. I want to definitely make an Aidan album, a Ronni & Adam album, and well, I have a lot of pictures of “things” such as flowers and stuff. Do I want to make an album of that stuff?
When Aidan was smaller, he used to get so involved playing computer games that he wouldn’t go use the potty. Today, he wet his pants twice because of games, so he won’t be allowed to play games tomorrow. He definitely knows better, he’s just being lazy. And that’s annoying. He’s already out of clean shorts because of it.
Speaking of laundry, I really miss having my own washer and dryer. There’s a little room here, but it’s hit or miss and frankly, the room is too dirty for my tastes. Dropping a sock is not a good idea, if you know what I mean. So we need to make a trip to a coin laundry center because I have clothes that haven’t been washed since before I moved (don’t worry, I haven’t worn them either!) and that’s not right. I want to take a pile of money and just take a whole day to do laundry. Sheets, blankets, everything. Actually, I’d much rather do one of those laundry service deals. Then I wouldn’t have to deal with it! But we’ll see. That goes under the heading of “extravagant” and “luxury”.
Anyway, I’ve been writing this entry for hours now, and I’m about ready to get off the computer. Til next time!
