Hello from the middle of the night on Monday. Its 1140 at night and I’m up blogging because I can’t sleep.
Monday day started out kind of slow and then got rolling for a little while. I woke up and went and fed my sister’s (who is in Disneyland) cat, Lincoln, then came home and watched some TV,
After I woke up a little bit more I went over to the doctors office to get my blood drawn for one of my medications. I only had to wait around for 10-15 minutes, so I was able to read my book for a little while before the vampire called me back. I couldn’t remember which arm was best for taking blood from, but she was able to find a good vein in my right arm, so stabby stabby.
After I got away from the vampire I headed over to my parents house to hang out for a little while. When I got there I gave Gucci a cookie and said hi, he had a very wet nose from drinking his water. Then I went inside and said hi to Poppa, who also had his blood taken this morning, Loony Lumi, and Mom.
Poppa helped me paste and give Gucci his shot. I should have given him his shot first, because after his pasting he usually (gently) bolts away (at a fast walk), so Poppa was telling him to woah while I was trying to give him his arthritis shot, Adequan. After that we went and tried to find some good grass to graze on, we had an entire 2 acre field to graze in, and he chose to graze by the dirt pile next to the fence where the grass was short instead of the tall nice grass anywhere else in the field.
After we were done grazing my mom asked if I wanted to go with her over to the lady’s house who is throwing my bridal shower. I said sure and so off we went. The lady is really nice and sweet, and has her heart in the right place. She’s throwing me an English Tea Party party. So we went over the details of that, and I got to meet her cool dog Rocky.
After about an hour and a half we left and went back to my parents house. I left soon after to come back home. Fiks was here taking a nap before he had to head back to work, so I unintentionally woke him up when I came in. I thought he’d be awake. So he was on his phone while I worked on my taxes. I get a whopping $2 whole dollars back from the state. Woohoo! I guess its better than owing taxes.
Fiks and I snuggled for a little while before he left for work again. I started a load of laundry with my uniform in it, and then watched some Netflix. A couple of hours later Fiks was done with work and came home with a package from my cousin/matron of honor, who had bought me a pair of shoes I really liked the look of. I was afraid that the shoes were going to be too small, since I ordered a size down because they didn’t have half sizes.
Cute huh? They ended up fitting and being a little too big for me. But it’ll work out, and it puts me at a nice height next to Fiks. Still not super tall, but taller than my usual stature. I got an email last week that the Lightfury from How to Train Your Dragon 3 was out at Build a Bear. We already had Nightfury from a couple of years ago, so I thought it’d be cute to get the Lightfury. Well, cute and nerdy. And since we were going over the hill to meet Fiks’ brother for his suit fitting it worked out perfectly.
I found the Lightfury and Fiks found the Eevee from Pokemon that he’s been wanting for years. So we got them stuffed, put their hearts in them, and off we went to Joseph A. Banks for the suit fitting. I caught a glimpse of his brother in the suit, he looked good in it. After they measured his suit for tailoring we went out to dinner at BJ’s Brewhouse. We had a good time over dinner, then we said our goodbyes and Fiks and I came home for the night.
I tossed and turned and woke up every hour for the rest of the night. So needless to say that today I’m tired. I went and fed Lincoln, no photos, sorry. Then I came back home and flopped on the sofa for a little while. I grabbed the laundry and then got dressed to go to work and went over to my parents place to paste Gucci.
Poppa was waiting for me inside. I said hi and made up Gucci’s paste, and then we put Lumi in the cage while we were outside. Gucci was good about his paste, managed to get some on my nice clean BDU’s tho. He wanted to graze on the far side of the field, but I didn’t want to walk past the manure pile, so we grazed a little around the stall and then he went inside.
Lumi and I chilled on the sofa, trying to take a nap while watching TV. I didn’t really get to sleep, but Lumi did. Lucky duck.
Then I went off to work, which was okay. It was chill up until the last 30 minutes, and then they were slammed, the line almost going out the door.
Fiks ended up working late, so I was home alone for a while. But he came home with 2 new coats from Joseph A Banks that he had bought. He looked really good in them, photos turned out crappy so I won’t share, just take my word.
Wednesday started out… Early. Like 330. I rolled over to turn my audio book back on and my phone was dead. It was plugged into the charger and everything. I tried to give it a factory reset, but that didn’t work. I even looked up what to do when your pixel 2 won’t turn on, and still nothing. I couldn’t get back to sleep so I flopped on the sofa and watched most of Aladdin. Fell asleep in the last 10 minutes and woke up for ending credits, yay! Then I put on another movie, don’t remember what, and Fiks’ alarm went off so I just crawled back into bed. He tried to fix my phone too and was unsuccessful. I used my Kindle Fire and put on some Downton Abby to try and sleep to. And I did for a little while.
I woke up and went to the feed store to get some stuff for Gucci. Senior feed and some shavings, some cookies, and a new pooper scooper for Poppa. The Verizon store was next, I walked in and told them what was happening. They plugged it into their charger and it started working. Couldn’t fucking believe it. So I looked like some kind of stupid person who couldn’t charge/turn on their phone properly. They said that it might be my charger that’s the issue.
After Verizon I went to the grocery store and got what we needed for the week. Then I went to my parents house to see Gucci and grab Poppa to help me unload, which we did fairly uneventfully. Gucci supervised over the fence of course. Then we pasted Gucci and that went fairly well, then we grazed for a while.
After the graze we went for a walk because we’re meant to get 4-5 days of rain and he won’t be getting out. So while we were walking he started acting stupid and spooking at nothing that was there. Then Mom came home from getting her nails done, all pink and sparkly.
Mom and I went out and did some errands. We went to Nothing Bunt Cakes to order my cake for the bridal (side note: so hard not to spell it bridle) shower. Lemon and marble cake flavors. So that should be tasty and fun. Then we went to Trader Joe’s to get some stuff for dinner for Poppa and other snacks. After that we went and got some insoles for my wedding shoes, we got a couple of pairs because we didn’t know which ones would work best.
We went back to my parents house and Poppa helped me give Gucci some water and I gave him a fresh bale of shavings. Well, while I was giving him a bale, Loony Lumi decided to roll in the shavings outside of the stall and got shavings all over him. So Mom ended up getting one of the horse brushes and brushing him off while Poppa held him in place.
Thursday was okay for most of the day. I went over to my sisters and fed Lincoln again, thankfully she comes home tonight so I don’t have to worry about him tomorrow.
I went over to my parents to paste Gucci before work, and I managed not to get slimed this time, yay!
After pasting him I walked him around for a few minutes since he’ll be stuck in his stall for the next few days. I know I said that yesterday, but the rain didn’t come today, its all starting Friday at about noon. I hung out with Mom and Poppa for a while and then went into work. Work went fine, mostly. I got a text from my boss asking me to work my weekend position tomorrow, which is fine. The other security guard, the one that patrols the whole place, came to the bank and was acting really weird. It made me paranoid that he was asking about me and my job performance. Which sucks. But they were cool and got me some ice-cream from down the street. I got chocolate chip cookie dough. Nom nom nom.
As I was driving home, there was this blue pickup truck being an asshole and swerving and riding everyone’s ass. I thought about calling it in but I didn’t because I didn’t have the plate in front of me for very long. I got off the freeway and went home an thought nothing of it. Came home, took a shower, jumped on Facebook to see that an accident with a blue pickup truck happened further up the freeway. Its a fatality. All I can think of is was it the same asshole? What would have happened if I called him in when I saw him? So this overwhelming feeling of guilt comes over me. I called and talk to my parents and they make me feel better, but I still feel a bit guilty.
On Friday I worked at the golf course instead of the bank, it was kind of a nice change. But it’s totally thrown me for a loop on what day it is. My brain thinks its Sunday right now but its Saturday. But they have a new way of us logging the vehicles in. We now do it through an app on the phone. Less details, so its kind of faster, but it took me a while to get used to it. After I was done with work (earlier than normal), I went over to my parents place for dinner and to give Gucci his medicine. Mom helped me paste him and then we went inside and started cooking. We did pork chops, wild rice, stuffing, and something else that I can’t remember.
I didn’t sleep Friday night. Was wide awake by 3 am. I tried to sleep in the bed but I gave up at 4 and moved to the sofa and put on downtown abbey again. So Saturday was kind of hard for me, I got snippy with Fiks first thing in the morning who thankfully didn’t take it personally. Work went alright, it was wet and slow. Not a lot of golfers. Not a lot of people in general. When I was done with work I went over and pasted Gucci by myself. My mom was at my sisters and poppa was at church. Poppa meant to be there to help paste him but he was running late. He decided he needed to supervise while I made up dinner.
I went over to my sisters after coming home and changing. Did pasta for dinner with pesto and moink (Italian sausage). My niece had made blueberry muffins while I was at work so that was desert. I didn’t partake, blueberries aren’t my thing. But they smelled good and everyone else enjoyed it. Saturday night Fiks and I made my new character for the new Dungeons and Dragons: Curse of Straid campaign. I made a ranger Goliath, I haven’t filled in all the details yet, but I’m happy with it. I might not be the brightest or most charismatic, but I’m a tank, which I’ve never played before. I usually play rouges and stealthy people.
I slept alright on Saturday night, woke up a few times but that was better than being wide awake. It was raining when I got to work and I went and did my patrols and my house checks. On my patrol I came upon a huge downed tree. I called the property manager and let her know, and she got a tree guy out pretty quick. I screwed up on which road it was on, but we met back up and I told him which road it was actually on.
But the rest of the day was fairly uneventful after the whole tree mess. I read and finished my book and started the second book in the series. Its by Kelly Armstrong and its the Nadia Stradford series. Its about a female hit man…woman…assassin…? Anyway she’s kind of a badass. After work I went over to my parents to paste Gucci really quick. Poppa fed him dinner while I made up the paste, and then he was really nice and held him for me. Then I came home to watch the Puppy Bowl, and I guess the Super Bowl too.
Have a week!
