Wow! Has it really been that long since I last wrote anything here?
The Greyhound trip back home has pretty much put me off ever doing another Greyhound trip. Not. Pleasant. I won’t go into details, but suffice it to say it wasn’t good at all.
Then, on Monday, Mr.POSSLQ and I were going to go out and get him a new office chair. But when we got to the parking lot the car was gone. One (expensive) trip to the impound lot later, we got the car back. But the end result of the whole fiasco is this… as desperately as we need to get a new car, we’ve decided that a new place to live will top the agenda next year. We have both more than had it with the craptastic attitude of the office staff where we live. Seriously, these folks have less than zero grasp of the concept of customer service and we are just completely OVER being treated like something nasty on the bottom of someone’s shoe. Seriously, I cannot even begin to express the level of anger I experience each and every time I have to interface with someone in the apartment office.
I also discovered that three weeks is really probably too long to spend at my Mom’s. She’s used to living alone and I think she gets really annoyed by the fact that I need to be working when I am visiting. I mean, I know she understands the “why” of the whole thing, but I think she just gets really frustrated that I have to take significant blocks of time and work when she feels I SHOULD be socializing with her. Also, there’s the whole reality of someone who is used to living alone being in a position where they are now sharing their space.
At any rate, I have a busy agenda in the next few months. I have a TON of work to do to be ready to move. I need to make some $$ to be able to afford to move. I will probably need some sort of medication to handle the stress that is involved in the whole process.
About the only other development is that I changed up my workspace and it’s working out really well. This will be something we will need to be aware of as we scout out new digs. I needed separation of “work “and “non-work” space and figured out how to do it and now wish I’d done it months ago. That said, I am really enjoying the new setup and I think it’s allowing me to be a bit more zen about things.
And… it’s far too late and I need to get to bed. Talk to you all again soon!
