Still. Boy, is it hot.
I didn't blog anything yesterday. So here are some words, because I'm addicted to this thing. Why? I dunno.
So today is the last day of my loong weekend. Sadness. It has been a busy four days. Sort of.
Thursday I took me to the doctor and Squirt to the vet, then got Squirt his license.
Thursday night Squirt was...well, I'm not sure what he was doing. He was sort of running around the armoire (wardrobe thingie) as though there was something underneath. Might have just been a bug. Probably was another mutant large X-Fly. The apartment was previously invaded by about 4 of them - huge, and they wouldn't die. But anyway I was in the mood to panic again, so I was wondering if he was going after a mousey or something. There was no sign of such a thing, but of course the thought was in my head and so then I couldn't sleep.
I slept for an hour or two, then woke up, then slept, then woke, all night. I'm not sure if it was because of that or something else but the next day my stomach was very not in the mood for food. I stayed in bed until about noon, then went out to get one of my Starbucks thingies. Which has caffeine and milk so in theory not good but I drank it anyway and that did help. What did not help was the heat. Ugh.
I was determined to do some shopping, though, so I went, for some stupid reason, to this stupid store called Daffy's, which if you have never been there, don't go. There was nothing of interest. I'm not sure why I went there instead of the Kohl's right next door. Anyway, that sort of sapped the energy out of me. So I called the apartment people to make sure about the amount to pay for Squirt, which for some reason had to be paid with a money order.
So then it was to the bank to get the money, and then briefly to the store to buy the money order, and then to the office to pay for the cat. Again. They asked me how the apartment was and I said, "Okay." I should have said, "except for the mouse," but as mentioned above I wasn't operating at 100%.
Anyway, that was done. Went home and did nothing for a bit. Worked on my map. Started thinking that if I didn't leave the apartment I was going to make myself crazy, so I left. I decided to let Squirt have the whole apartment (except the bathroom) while I went out. Went to Starbucks again, with the intention of doing some writing, but that didn't happen. I went to Target and I don't know why I went there either because there wasn't anything in the clothes that I wanted to buy, and I wasn't in the mood to buy anything else. Also, it was still really hot so I wasn't in the mood to go to any other stores.
So I went back home. Squirt was fine. Seems like when he's not in the bedroom he's hiding in the couch, which I would think would not be the best place to hang out, since there's no AC in the living room and also being inside the couch would be even hotter. But whatevers.
Friday night I was determined to sleep, so I took some Benadryl and was okay. Felt about 1000% better when I woke up, not only because I wasn't tired, but I also wasn't feeling anxious anymore (at least not as much), so yay. Hung around for a bit and then went to Mom's in the afternoon. Brother wanted to come and see the cat again but I told him no way because a) that's a lot of driving b) that's a lot of time and c) that's a lot of gas! Since I moved, I'm about 45 minutes from Mom's, assuming there's no traffic. So, no cat-viewing for him. :P
Brother and I went to Starbucks for some beverages, and then we all (me, Mom, & him) went to a Chinese Buffet for dinner, where I ate slightly less than I ordinarily eat, but otherwise no problems. Afterward I really felt like I wanted to sleep again. Went to Marshall's with the intention of buying either clothes or an iPhone case for my phone, but there was a line, and no good clothes, and halfway into it I realized I didn't feel like shopping after all.
I used to go shopping - clothes shopping that is - with my mom as a kid and see all these outfits that were so pretty and I really wanted, but couldn't afford - or Mom wouldn't let me get because when was I ever going to wear it, seriously? Anyway, nowadays it seems I go into stores and I'm just...unimpressed with the clothing selection. Maybe I've been going to the wrong stores lately. I haven't been to JC Penny's in a while, and they always used to have some nice clothes. I haven't been clothes shopping in a while, which probably explains why I have money in my savings account, lol.
Anyway, I left Mom's a little earlier than normal on Saturday, and as a result there were actually parking spots available when I got home. Wow. Squirt meowed when I came in the door, which I took to be a positive sign. The rest of the evening was uneventful. I went to bed without having to resort to drugs and slept almost through the entire night. Not bad considering the cat decided to meow and wake me up at about 2 AM.
I've been letting him have the whole apartment for the last few days, but I'm not comfortable sleeping with the bedroom door wide open, so I leave it open just a crack - enough that my half-asleep brain thinks it's closed, but it's open enough that Squirt can come and go as he wishes. He seems to have no interest in spending much time in the living room other than inside the couch - which might be because it's HOT in there and might be because I'm spending 90% of my time in the bedroom.
That might change when I get the AC in the living room.
Anywho today I have done almost nothing useful other than feed the cat. I went to Starbucks and managed to write about a page in my notebook with two characters that I hadn't written before, which was exciting, but the scene was really just them preparing to have sex and nothing important to the plot, and probably won't even be in the final version if I ever get to a final version. Which I might not, if I keep not writing it.
After that I went to Dress Barn, which is one of the few stores that does not conform to the above rule of ugly stuff. I bought two skirts and a shirt. I probably should have done laundry instead, but now I don't have to! HA!
It's too damn hot to do laundry. Or much of anything else, for that matter. This is why I'm glad I don't have a dog - I'd have to walk it in this weather. No thanks. Came home, took a shower, haven't done anything else. I'll probably nuke some frozen pizza for dinner. I have leftover pork, but nothing to have with it since I didn't go grocery shopping. Might do that tomorrow night on my way home from work. Or might go to the gym since I haven't done that in ages.
I was going to post my map, but I haven't finished it yet. Oh well.
Oh, and one more thing, it seems there may be yet another OK Cupid guy in the picture. Maybe. Which would make this #5.
