Wandering thoughts, wandering Wednesday

I am so COLD. It is currently -5, with wind chills reaching -45 tonight. It is warm in here, in my apartment, but I am cold. I woke up with a sore throat and feel a cold coming on, so maybe that's the reason.

I spent the day after a job interview this morning, being basically lazy. Cleaned a little, did a little laundry..sat on my butt the rest of the day. I enjoy these quiet times, but know that I should be doing something productive, so I spend the time wrestling with myself, my conscience, my inner me that cannot grasp that this has become my life. Temporarily of course, but my life nonetheless...I don't know the reason but I wait for changes, while doing my part.

We had dinner with Janelle and Nick last night, the first time since they moved into their new place. It was a good time and she is a good cook. Driving home in the blinding snowstorm was not enjoyable however, and I was glad I wasn't behind the wheel.

Tomorrow, I hit the bookwork for the ice cream store, W2's, end of year numbers...get ready for the taxman. I think I like the lazy days better.

Have a happy. :)

I hear ya on the tax man stuff - I got my CD in the mail to the accountant yesterday - THANK GOD my part of it's done and he can deal with the rest.

When I feel like you do today I pull out my electric blanky and cacoon on the couch. I highly recommend it. Hugs honey!

Cheryl said...

I can't imagine your kind of cold. Brrrr. Do you think you want the job you interviewed for?

Mary said...

Aren't the quiet times the best? I love them, too. But without the wild times we couldn't appreciate being still and quiet.

Taxes - Oh good Lord - Why do we have to think about taxes. Maybe that's why we get the worst, cold weather of the year in January. We have to stay in so we might as well gather our tax 'stuff'

Sending a big warm smile and hug.

Why do we feel so guilty for taking a break once in a while? If we're going to do it we may as well enjoy it or what's the point?

Gee that sounds cold. Even I would baulk at those kinds of temperatures. Stay warm and enjoy a rest if that's what you feel like doing. You do deserve it you know :)

This kind of cold is just WAY too extreme. Seems like we, in Mich., get your weather a couple days after you. Our high today is only going to be 5. I am so thankful I have a warm home and find myself worrying over those who don't....especially the homeless. Take care of that cold....Nyquil, Nyquil, Nyquil. A gift from the gods. Stay warm, feel better. Big hugs.

You said -45? OMG, I cant even handle 45, forget the minus!! Seriously, anything below 50 and my body is frozen to the core.

I hope your sore throat is short lived. Feel better and STAY WARM!!

Beth said...

tax stuff...YUK. and um....WTF? you JUST found out your step-mother passed away??? That's messed up BIG TIME. What else do you say about that? damn.


Stay warm! Now is the time I wish I'd caved and bought those snugglie thingies on the late night AS SEEN ON TV a big blanket with sleeves..better then a robe. :)

Glad you had a nice time with Janelle. I'm getting excited for you. I know this sounds stupid, But I feel like I've known her and you forever and I'm really excited for all of you!


Amanda said...

Oh no! Sounds like you have my cold. :|

Winter has been particularly harsh this year. Maybe that means it will be over earlier?

Kelly Jene said...

(Groan) Please don't mention taxes!!!! :)

I'm glad you are having a chance to kick back after working yourself so hard for so long. Temporary or not it can do a body good.

Big hugs lady friend!

Hey woman, Wow, that is COLD. Have you ever done any temp work? Sometimes it's fun.
