Waiting

I made some pretty good progress on Griltech's sock today. Did the heel flap, turned the heel, and I'm about half way done with the instep. Overall, it was two hours worth of knitting time.

Grrrr

Somehow, I left the freezer door open an inch and all my frozen lunches are ruined. Good thing I have soup in the house.

Mario

About two weeks ago, Perky lent me her copy of Super Mario Brothers. Last night, instead of cleaning house I broke out the game and played it for two hours. It was a lot of fun. I managed to get a couple of levels done before I quit, two hours later. I like how I can save the game. The old game I had didn't allow for that. (Does that tell you how long it's been since I've had a console gaming system?)

Anyways, thanks for lending me the game Perky.

Weekend Recap


Last night, I had an anxiety dream. I don't have the typical naked in math class ones, but one of them is long lines in the cafeteria. Not sure what that really means about me, but its disturbing. Tonight's upsetting dream had a long line of four people in it and a fifty foot space before the windows of food. I remember thinking, really? and just going around them. The guys got upset at me and was doing some pretty nasty screaming, but I shrugged it off. So, either I'm getting better at these dreams or the stress isn't as bad as I think.

Sunday was movie day. Perky lent us Big Hero 6. It was very cute. Then we watched 300 Rise of a Empire. I thought it was very bad, and I just might send it home with Perky. Because of watching something so bad, we watched Move Over, Darling. Then we watch My Life in Ruins. The last movie of the night was Throw Momma from the Train. It's amazing how such a simple movie can be so funny.

Saturday night was game weekend. While I do feel much better, the thought of herding cats just wasn't something I wanted to do. So it was board game night. The guys played something, I didn't venture in to find out. I stayed in the living room and worked on my sock. I finished it and started a on one for Grilltech. I managed to get a couple of inches done on his, before calling it a night.

For those of you who don't remember, herding cats:

  • Four hours of my day left, time needs to hurry along
  • Well, this is a fun day for Grilltech. He just popped a filling
  • My day just got shorter

  • Have a good weekend

Cats

Ruby gave us a scare last night.

She went outside - because she's fixed enough - about 1600. When she wasn't back by dusk, we went looking for her but had no luck. By bed time, she still wasn't home yet, we were truly worried. I woke up twice and went to the back door and she wasn't there. This morning, I go out and call her and I can hear her crying. She's up in tree and can't get down. Grilltech comes out and Ruby decides there is enough of an audience, she'll try and climb down. A minute later, she's running into the house and can't decide what she wants to do first. Eat or make sure nothing changed. We're still debating if she's grounded or not.
