I just realized that I haven't posted all weekend, and now of course, I have little time. I am back to work today after having yesterday off, my plan being to search for an apartment for September, when I am able to move. You all know about the best laid plans...
Yeah. I went out to do just that with four places in mind to see. After seeing the first one, and let me tell you that whole process takes forever...and it was only one complex so far, I became entrenched in a freakin' hurricane. Okay, so not really a hurricane, but it surely might as well have been! Rain and wind like I haven't seen in a long time. And I am driving in it. On a four lane highway, with lots and lots of blinded traffic, like me. But we all just kept right on driving. At times, I swear, I couldn't see a thing, other than the lights of the car in front of me. I prayed that car was just rolling along, and not pulling off the side of the road, as I was following his every move.....we were all doing about forty in a 65. Oh yeah...fun times. After the whole HOUR it took for the storm to roll by, I really tried to get my mo-jo back and get to it once again. I called a couple of the places, no luck with them, no vacancies, (and one was the place I really, really wanted to be), and then the rain and hail came again, and I just said EFF it. Seriously. How long can these monsoons keep coming? As I write this, it is going again, and the quarter sized hail just stopped. Enough rain already!
My back is on fire today. No real reason...just fire. Usually, I can handle it. This morning, worse than usual.
I loved one of the places I looked at yesterday, way affordable and it had every other thing on my list, plus the location was awesome - as far as the j-o-b goes. But third floor. No elevators. Most of the time, I can manage, but what about the times I can't? I would hate to be stranded in, or out of, my own place.
I got to spend a lot of time with my baby Zachary on Saturday. Oh how awesome he is, even if he was way sick. He is almost walking. They grow up way too fast.
Happy Tuesday, y'all. Make it a great day. :)
