bundled up, walkabout, snow

minor progress

I'm caught up on laundry, newspapers, dishes and mail. I'm keeping the coupons for carline, which means I'm supposed to turn to working on the next monster.

I'm not sure if the next monster is the kitchen table or bookkeeping. The kitchen table kind of overlaps with bookkeeping, since there's stuff on it that relates, but stuff on it that doesn't.

While I consider in which direction to turn next, I'm entering Rookettes records, and then I'll eat lunch. Which will immerse me in the kitchen table. I may flee to bookkeeping to escape. ;)

ooh the marvels of a modern procrastinator

I ate lunch, then decided to go ahead and shower now, maybe it would perk me up.

Instead it made me dizzy. Stupid ear.

So then I decided to trudge back and forth to the car, emptying it out. There were two reasons - one: I've updated the Rookettes records, and the bag was still still out in the car, for putting things away properly.

I forgot, until I started writing this, that the real excuse for emptying out the car was the stash of receipts in the visor, which I need for working on bookkeeping. The receipts are still in the visor, and I'm back in my comfy chair, because on top of the dizziness, I got hit by a wave of fatigue.

I think my body is going into hypochodriac defense against the stress-inducing activity of looking at all our bills. ;)

There was an insufficiency of email or new LJ entries to rationalize staying in my comfy chair, so I'm getting up, while I had the weird fatigue staved off, and before sleepiness can set in in its wake.

heh, I used the word insufficiency in a sentence about procrastination. Go me.

Good news, Bad news

Good News
  • I entered a contest for a 13" TVCR a couple of weeks ago, at the car clinic, and today they called to tell me that I'd won!
  • I don't have to work tonight.
  • Canuckgirl is coming in just 3 days!
  • Wolf and Sydb are coming Saturday night, to help celebrate Canuckgirl's birthday!
  • Critter's decided on a costume for Halloween, and it only involves me moving mission patches from his old flight suit to his new one.
Bad News
  • I started my period today, but it's only two days early.
  • The only day I work this week is Thursday.
  • Wolf and Sydb's visit may be trashed by a change in on-call schedule that happened when one of Wolf's co-workers quit.
  • My sewing machine is broken, so I have to sew the patches by hand.
  • I'm still miserably behind on paying bills.

I think on the whole, that the good really out-weighs the bad. We stopped by Carnival today, to replace Tigger's shoes -- the second pair of Sketchers to experience sole separation. Bleh. We bought Nikes this time. And found him a water resistant bungie watch. He was pleased.

Now I'm going to go fix chili-mac for dinner, using Flar's chili, and then start in on Critter's Halloween costume. And then see if I have the motivation to work on bills with my unexpected free time.
