Got another half a row planted this morning.  Of course its heating up again despite the rain last week.  Still no job...

And the Heat is Back...

Though it was cool this morning.  Managed to get my brother to help me plant more in our garden while he was weeding.
Got quite the downpour yesterday, so couldn't really do it then.  I did use the time to get my math stuff done.  But now I'm a bit worn out...

Thats Better

It rained last night-and of course started raining as my brother and I went out to weed the family garden despite the broken cloud cover-so things cooled down quite a bit.  Reminds me of that older movie Rear Window I watched last semester, but the rain in that movie only made it humid rather than cool things down.
My modern american literature teacher had a different definition of art: What a person does in order to die sane.
Got a math quiz to do and some homework.  Just waiting for the rain so I can weed.

Got a migraine after weeding yesterday.  Had to take a pain pill so I could do my homework.  Didn't make it to choir because I wasn't feeling well. Sigh.
Rather humid/muggy today.  Supposed to rain, which might cool things off a bit...

Tried to weed this morning and kept getting dizzy.  Got some done though.  Just had to avoid standing up to rapidly.
New class started yesterday, with a teacher I've had before.  They started class the same way as last time, so I was a bit bored.
Was really late to my interview-couldn't find the place and had to call them about it-so I'm not sure how well it went.  Sigh...

I'm tired.  We went to see a lat night showing of Captain America last night, and got home well after midnight.  Still like the movie.
Have my interview today, so I'm taking a shower before I go.  Then my new class starts tonight.  This should be fun.

Blood Donations

Are a bit nerve wracking because sometimes they really hurt while others its more of the 'pinch' sensation.  Kind of depends on the tech and their level of practice I think.
Getting warm very fast today.  Ugh...
Have some reading to do, and a paper to write from the reading.  Other than math that's it for today...

Not Again...

Got a nasty headache again. Not feeling too great either.  Maybe I didn't drink enough yesterday, or maybe I was watching too much t.v.  Would be a first.  Got roped into babysitting my nieces for a few hours, then my sister made my brothers and I dinner.
Ah well, got first exam score for math, but I haven't looked at it yet.

junk emails that keep showing up in my in box.  Something about you've won money type thing.  Never answer them, and even mark them as spam but every so often I get another one.
Got my last novel class assignment done, just have to get it to the teacher.  And print it out first...

Thursday, June 19, 2014


Its back to being hot...and my class is over save my last assignment for novel writing.  That shouldn't be too hard.
But the heat made weeding harder.  My legs are sore.
Choir last night was hard.  My gut was sore from that.
Whats up with all the construction around here?

Wednesday, June 18, 2014


Got yet another 'thanks but no thanks' letter from a job I applied for.  Getting really tired of that.  Better news is that I now have an interview from a different job set up for next week.
Final day of class for my novel genre class.  We did a reading of a short story or chapter we'd written during class.  I read a short I did from a prompt where the main character is in a awkward situation when they heard someone breaking into their house, and then you retell in from the invader's pint of view.  The teacher liked the transition between the two.
cloudy again, with a sprinkle in the morning.  Rather chill with a breeze too.  Got my scooter back!  Poor dad froze driving it home for me...

Now Its Raining.

Heavily, I might add.  my nieces are still here, due to their parents needing more time.  Both have to work today as well.
We lost power last night too, for about two hours.  I had to go pick up my brother right after it went off.  Glad I keep a led flashlight next to my bed.

rain clouds but not a lot coming down.  Babysitting my nieces for the day, and just got the older one to lay down for a nap.
Last paper turned in, but have to get a packet together for wednesday-though she gave us til friday for it.  Usual reading for the online class, and go get my scooter-give them a bit of advice while I'm there about telling their customers before doing stuff-and then just have my first math test.  Nothing big.
Gave my dad a cross stitched card for Father's Day. 
Why are heels supposed to be fancy?  I always feel like I'm walking on eggshells during and my ankles want to roll afterwards.

Do so many employers want a pre-employment test regarding one's personality?  Wouldn't the interview cover that?
Only have math left for the weekend.  Still need to finish my Father's Day present.  Things were a lot cooler this morning, but an hour of weeding still whipped me out.  Sigh...

Friday, June 13, 2014


Hot yesterday, hot this morning too.  Did a lot of weeding for both.  Had a nice micro-burst last night, which cooled things off for a bit.  My parents heard there was a small earthquake in a town south of us and wanted to make sure things were okay.  We didn't notice.
Trying to work on my last paper for my novel workshop class.  Got an idea, but need to flesh it out.
Finally heard that my scooter is ready for pickup, then found out they went and did a whole lot more than the rear brake and tire fix I'd asked them to do.  Supposed to be $200 max from the original estimate, and now they're charging me $350 or so for repairs I never asked them to do, and they didn't tell me they were doing.  I knew some of the stuff wasn't in good shape, but I was either going to leave it or do it myself. Grr.

Wednesday, June 11, 2014


Didn't get to bed early like I wanted to, so I'm still tired.  Hot today.  Got my stuff in for class.  And filled out a job application.
Have to find a book for my online class and read it by tonight.  Short according to the teacher.

Monday, June 9, 2014


I get a headache if I don't drink enough water-aka 5 large glasses minimum.  And it takes a while to go away if I try to ignore it without drinking more.
Got all my homework in, just have to get some last minute stuff done for my book presentation.  Can't even remember the name of the author who wrote The Day of the Triffids.  Book didn't have any info on them either.

That Was Fun...

YSA yearly retreat for the past three days. Left Wednesday and got back today.  My second youngest brother and my sister both got to ride a horse.  We helped the resort manager-we stayed at a  resort instead of camping this time-with two projects.  Laying sod-after clearing the rocks and debris-by the kitchen area, then clearing out the old gravel and bark from a pretty waterfall area and laying new stuff.  That one took about 2.5 hours.
Lot of very large moths up there-mountain resort-that my sister got pictures of.  Started my dad's Father's  Day present but still needs work.

of babysitting your 3 year and not quite 7 month old nieces when you've got homework-getting on the computer is to be avoided and most of said homework needs it.
Plus my dad's cat and I collided this morning and I got two scratches as a result.  I'm kind of glad, given how old she is, and things would have been worse had she got hurt.  Not that I like the pain though.  Had fun trying to get band aid's on them, as it's on my foot.

Monday, June 2, 2014


Had my story reviewed today. I am so far described as ambitious, and not quite up to my own challenge.  But with a little work I can make it all fit. Or something like that.
Had my hair in a braid all weekend and took it out today.  The heat is making it go flat anyway...
