What I Do When I Should Be Doing Something Else

Lazy, lazy, lazy. Yesterday, I slept until 1:30 in the afternoon. Eek! Today, I set my alarm for 8, hit snooze when it went off, slept until 9, then went back to sleep again until 10. I have issues.

I've been going through everything I own, trying to weed out the unnecessary, and I ended up with two and a half boxes of books I didn't want. I took them to Half Price Books to sell, and they gave me a measly 40 bucks! For two and a half boxes! Okay, okay, I know that's pretty reasonable. I don't know how much I was expecting to get; just, more, I guess. At any rate, I now have 40 dollars cash. Sweet! I've been walking around for the last three weeks with exactly one dollar, so that's definitely an improvement. One of these days, I'm gonna go through all my clothes and hawk them somewhere. My room here at my dad's is a total mess, almost the entire floor covered with my junk, and I'm sitting here doing what? Blogging. Like I said, lazy, lazy, lazy.

At least this weekend I'll be busy, busy, busy. Nickel Creek concert tonight, my dad's showing me around Renton tomorrow morning, a birthday party in the afternoon, something (can't remember what) in the evening, then we're driving down to Vancouver on Sunday to visit my grandparents (me gran's a wee bit ill). I haven't applied for any other laboratory jobs (I want to wait until I know that I definately did not get either of the two I really want), but I've been applying for waitressing jobs. Ick. What am I thinking? I hated waitressing! Oh, right, I'm thinking of the money. Money, money, money.


  1. You gave away two and a half boxes of books? Please tell me that they were all science books. Because I'm gonna be mad if you gave away something I might like.

  2. I am sorry about the sitch with your mom. I understand tense mom relationships. I have had trouble there myself in the past 10 years or so. I hope things are better for you now that you are at your dads.

    I am still getting used to the "grandma" moniker, but it is growing on me day by day. I still have a strong feeling the baby will be a girl, and after our family reunion this weekend, Hannah has decided on the family name Emma for a first name and Leigh after me for a second name (spelled slightly differenly, I was named after my dad for my middle name, "Lee" but that's ok with me, I always liked the other spelling better) I was thrilled. The name has strong ties in my dad's family. Somehow, this makes me think even more strongly that it will be a girl. I had a similar experience when I was pregnant with her and wanted to name her Elise and no one could agree on how to spell it so I opened up the baby book and said, "Hannah Joy", slammed the book shut and that was the end of that. And here she is. So I am keeping my fingers crossed. We will find out in about 7 weeks or so. I dont know what I will do if it is a boy. I have such a girl mindset. I will have to totally readjust.

    I hope you find a new job soon and if you are waiting tables you will have to tell us what restaurant so Hannah and I can come up and harass you and leave you a monstrous tip. :)

    Have a great day!!
