distractions

I went shopping today.  The usual groceries and errands and a trip to the mall.  It was windy and cold but I did want to give J a chance to see icks.  I know that with our having company and his traveling there won’t be much of another chance for 2 or 3 weeks.

I got myself a best-seller at walmart today.  What have I come to?  I’m trying to keep my mind busing on something, anything.  I will not even think about that which I now know.

So, I’m reading Dewey.  So far it’s cute, sweet, a little too easy of a read.  But being both a cat and a book person I’m in to it.

We had a cat at work for a while.  She hitched a ride in S’s car one morning.  Her and I put some water outside, she was going to have to take her to the shelter as soon as she left.  The truck driver let her in.  We said not to (we’re mom’s we knew that we were talking about) but the guys took her in anyway.  The boss said we could keep her.  The big boss said we could keep her.  She was getting spoiled.  Everyone loved her.  People came in just to see her.  And then it was decided that she couldn’t stay.  But no one had the heart to take her to the pound.  So she managed a little long before a forklift driver took her home.  She’s still missed.  At least he keeps us all updated on what she’s into these days.

So part of the trip to the mall was that I’ve decided that it might be a good career move for me to update my wardrobe a little bit.  It’s been along time since I went shopping with myself in mind.  I was shocked how much Christmas stuff their still trying to get off clearance racks.  While it was fun to try on a few things the whole place was really depressing.  The place was packed because of the ugliness outdoors.  But there wasn’t much selling.  But it did distract me for a while.

I’m typing this while on facebook chat.  It’s keeping my brain busy.  I’m trying to convince myself to go to bed early for daylight saving’s time.  It’s not working.  If I ever find who came up with the ridiculus idea to change our clocks I’ll make him get up one hour earlier everyday for the rest of eternity.

PB’s been fussy all day.  Something’s not right with him but I can’t quite put my finger on it.  I’ll just keep watching for now.  Not really anything else to do.

I found something that makes J forget herself long enough to walk without pretending to hold on.  PB picked out to big, pink, balls at the store today.  One for himself and one for her.  She loves it.  I was a little worried she might try to use it to hold on to and have a nasty spill but she knew just what to do with it.  Adorable.  That’s my girl.  Wanting fluffy pink clothes but able to kick a ball twice her size perfectly.  Maybe she’ll play rugby.

My allergies are acting up again and I can barely see so I’ll have to call it done for tonight.

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
