I don't want to travel tomorrow.

It's put me in a funk.
sernin: (laptop)
There are small handfuls of experiences that make me truly happy: lying on the couch with purring kitties, watching older couples square dance, enjoying conversation with small groups of friends while eating, plotting out my documentary film festival schedule, and spending time with Molly. (No, this isn't the entire list, just the ones that come to my mind at the moment)

It's always hard to end a vacation with Molly. I want her to live next door to me for the rest of my life. (I was shameless in trying to get her to buy the house next to mine.) We snark on life, eat ice cream, watch horrible movies, and obsess over how often the word "apparently" comes up in everyday conversation. (Seriously. Start counting. There's an epidemic of "apparently.")

So I'm in post-Molly slump, wanting to drive back up to her house, sit on the couch with some ice cream and a diet coke, and watch a movie. Or sit at the dining table with ice cream and a diet coke, and play a game.  (Instead, I _need_ to read more of a big work document, and prepare myself for a really important day tomorrow.)

It's hard to leave, because it may be another year (literally, since I saw her last March) before we're together again. It may be never, which her blod clot completely freaked me out. Part of my resolving is to spend much more time with people who bring out the best in me, and Molly is one of the people who do that.

I wish I could lay down beside you
when the day is done.
Wake up to your face against the morning sun.
But like everything I've ever known,
you disappear one day.
So, I spend my whole life hiding my heart away.

I woke up feeling heavy hearted.
I'm going back to where I started.
morning rain
morning rain
Now though I wish that you were near
the same old road that rought me here
It's brought me home
It's calling me home

I wish I could lay down beside you
when the day is done.
Wake up to your face against the morning sun.
But like everything I've ever known,
you disappear one day.
So I spend my whole life hiding my heart away.
I could spend my whole life hiding my heart away.

Three faucets and oven have been installed.

Appointment with fabulous doctor hal lasted TWO FREAKING HOURS and no definitive answer from the tests that he could run in the office.  Other test results won't be in for a day or two.

No, I haven't cooked anything yet.  Too much pressure.

I almost asked the doctor for a prescription for a kitten.  Because kittens make everything better.

    Can you hear the buzzing? My mind is on overdrive, despite my best attempts to calm it.

    Last week I had an open house. It was a cheerful, well-fed event. I love my house. I love my friends. Having my friends in my new house was fabulous.

    I've discovered a robin nest between the gutter and my bedroom window. (By "discovered" I mean that I finally paid attention to the crazy acrobatics my cat has been doing to watch Mama Bird feed the baby birds.) From the patio chair, I can see three baby beaks pop up when the female or the male land on the nest. I've put out food and water next to the patio. It's far enough from the nest to not be threatening, but close enough for the birds to find it (and eventually the squirrels too).

    Work is unpleasant. There's just not enough time nor energy to type out all the details. (Not that I could, given all the legal disclaimers that have been on the bottom of every email I've received today.) I'm just really ready to move on from the big project.

    I also found out that I wasn't selected by higher-ups for an amazing developmental program.

    Work just isn't a great place for me to be this week.

    Peanut turns two on Saturday. I can't hardly believe it.  He even garbles my name now.
