Well hello! Remember me?! Yeah, I've been struggling here lately. I thought the dark funk was past after I called in sick that day but nope, fell hard back into the abyss for a while. I've wanted to blog, there have been things to natter about, but when I'm in that mood I just stare at the screen and give up in a fit of 'Who cares anyway?' But enough of that! I'm feeling better for the moment so I'm cranking out a post while I can.
Look what's newly stocked at my Walmart. Yesssss! We're pretty much completely out of candles so I knew I'd be buying these when I saw them. I don't know if I bought any last year. I'm thinking we went through leftovers from 2015 last year. So I'm not absolutely certain which scents they had in 2016 but I believe Crisp Evergreen, Pumpkin Waffles, and Caramel Cinnamon Roll are the same as always. This apple one is slightly different than what they had in 2015 (both in name and description), and I didn't see a cider or flannel one today. The evergreen one will get tucked away for the Christmas season. The other three will get set aside until fall. I'll start with the apple one in September. Yay! We're getting closer and closer to fall!
Work continues on the barn. I'm so far behind on updating pics, so we'll just look at this pic from today. They're still out there working on it every day. They're still going to work early so they can get home earlier and work more. They're still starting out there at 5am on the weekends. Go, guys, go! This is, oddly enough, part of my funky mood lately. I have a sort of jealousy happening because they're so into this project and have things to look forward to. I'm absolutely glad they're doing it but it just sort of highlights my own boredom. I just have half-assed hobbies and interests that no one else is interested in. Hubby tried to cheer me up with 'But the barn is yours too! Just think about all the projects we can do!' Yeah, down the road, but for now I'm just dragging myself to work to help pay for their excitement. *sigh*
I was able to visit with my sister and nephew/godson at my mom's again this week. This time we took pics! lol
Ty even stopped by to impress Sheri and Mom with The Beard, as we've started calling it. Julius wanted nothing to do with him at first but eventually warmed up to him enough to have a quick pic taken.
Casey's having a new round of drama in his living situation, but in happier news for him . . . he has a little furbaby now. This poor little guy was the last of the litter over at a friend's house. I'm convinced there is something not right about this kitty. This pic doesn't really show it as much as others but his eyes look weird. I was sure he was half blind or something but no, he seems fine. There is just *something* odd though. I'm curious to hear if the vet comments on anything in particular.
But anyway, the little guy is four months old and was already named Cinnamon so Casey's going to leave it at that. And boy, these two are hooked on each other already. It's so cute, and I think it will be good for Casey. He was very much a cat person even when he was at home. It was one of the perks of moving into this particular apartment building, that limited pets are allowed.
Okies, peoples, there is my update.
If the moody funk stays in neutral mode, maybe I'll be able to natter again tomorrow.
For now though, I'm off to bed.
Anything exciting or interesting or just plain boring happening with you lately?
