Stinky won't shut the hell up. The dang cat is walking around, incessantly crying and howling. I finally had to throw him in the garage tonight because I couldn't take it anymore. And when I could still hear him through the door, I finally took Kaya outside where we sat on the porch. I could only faintly hear him then.
And because Stinky is so bound and determined to get in my face and cry non-stop, Kaya is acting up, determined to get in my face and just pant and remind me she still exists.
God bless Tiny, who just retreats to the farthest side of the room to get away from the Stinky v. Kaya antics.
I swear I'm going crazy in here.
So tonight a piece of the old Erin returned. The old Erin that takes on tasks of huge and improbable sizes, and doesn't know why. Right now my little world is filled with the usual 40 hour a week job, spending time with Little, taking care of my pets, and the usual personal stuff. Over the next few days we can start adding more stuff to that. Like how I'm going to Ireland in about 6-7 weeks for work, and how that increases my workload greatly. And how I'm going to Virginia for a week, and have a lot to get done before that. And how I wanted some freelance work for extra cash before going to Ireland, and had the motherload fall in my lap (thanks Sara!). I'm going to be busy.
And then, if that wasn't enough, I've joined a new community organization related to Big Brothers Big Sisters. I'm thrilled to be a part of it, and very happy to help. If you know me well, you know that when they said they were looking for help organizing a large event, that I didn't even think twice before responding. And so yes, I'm very deeply involved in that now- which happens in 4 weeks. More details on that to come soon, I'm sure.
On top of everything else, my laptop is cursed. For what is about to be the third time, I have to pack it up and send it in to HP for repairs under the warranty. It will be gone 9-11 business days. This laptop is my life! Its what I do all my work on! I do have another computer (my brother's) that I can use in its' absence, but it isn't easy or convenient at all. This is just an unwelcome additional burden and curse.
So there you have it. Busy busy busy. But happy to be so!
