This is just getting silly.

It is 5.26 AM. I am up, I have showered, I have gotten dressed, I have moved a bookshelf out of my bedroom closet into my bedroom proper, and I have started a load of laundry.

This is really getting ridiculous.

Morning update.

Thus far today, I have:
  • Showered.
  • Gotten dressed.
  • Made a pot of coffee.
  • Done a load of laundry.
  • Signed up for my medical flexible spending account at work.
  • Moved a bookshelf out of my bedroom closet into the bedroom proper.
  • Assembled the drawers in my office closet for storing crafts.
  • Found a 3-ring binder, dividers, and a 3-hole-punch and assembled the work papers I've accumulated into it.

Before I leave for work, I am going to attempt to:
  • Do the dishes.
  • Switch purses so I can stop digging through the bucket purse every time I want to find something.
  • Clean up the living room and dining room somewhat since tonight is craft night.

This whole being a morning person thing is working out well for me. But dear me, it's weird.

Morning update, again.

I shall add to the list of things I've done this morning:
  • Went through the last bunch of flowers that Vger gave me and pulled some of the ones that weren't doing so well. I retrimmed the stems on the rest, trimming some of them very short. The ones that were trimmed to a regular length were arranged back into the vase in the living room. The ones with the short stems were arranged in a small bowl which is now on my nightstand.
  • Changed packet's litter, fed her, watered her. Vacuumed her bathroom.
  • Did the dishes.
  • Finally found my diner-style sugar dispenser and filled it.
  • Cleaned up the counters near the sink in the kitchen.

I think I'm not going to get around to cleaning the living room or dining room until after I get home from work, but damn, I've gotten a lot done this morning.

I guess I should have seen that coming.

I get to work, and all my boundless energy of this morning... found its bounds.


I don't wanna go out into the cold to go to my staff meeting at a sports bar for lunch. There are so many issues I have with this plan. Shall I enumerate them for you? I shall!
  1. It's cold outside. I know that a goodly number of you are in Massachusetts and Maine and other frozen tundra sort of places, but damnit, it's really cold for Virginia here.
  2. If we leave, we won't get reasonable parking when we come back, which means we'll have to walk from never-never-land to get back to our cars. Did I mention it's cold?
  3. It's a sports bar.
  4. We're having our meeting at lunch time, which means it will be mobbed.
  5. Did I mention it's a sports bar?


Wanna go home. Wanna clean. Wanna work on crafty things. Don't wanna go to silly meeting at silly sports bar. I'm perfectly capable of feeding myself for lunch without having the company pick up the tab, so I can go to a meeting in a sports bar / restaurant, where I won't be able to hear anyone anyway.

Hell, I'd rather stay at work and, say, actually work, instead of killing the extra time in transit and waiting for tables, etc.

Grumpy meri! Still not king!
