Kittens and Counter tops

Breaks don’t work well for me. I apparently forget everything I’m supposed to do, and I completely forget what day it is.

I hope everyone had a great holiday. I can say that we cooked a turkey and I didn’t even burn anything. That’s a pretty big accomplishment in my book.

We haven’t done anything really exciting since Thanksgiving. We might try and reorganize our tiny little kitchen. We have no counter space so trying to prepare stuff on the stove top while trying to use it has given us quite a few burnt fingers.

Our kitten is sick again, so we’ll be making another trip to the vet today. I wish he would just get better. We keep thinking he’s improving, but then he gets sick again. It’s frustrating because I feel like a bad person for not being able to take care of my kitten. He doesn’t seem to be to hampered down by being sick, so that’s a blessing.

Anyhow, have a great weekend!

It’s Turkey/Ham Day!

Have a good day with your families, or however you chose to spend it. I will attempt to not burn the whole apartment complex down by making this ham.

On the premise of today, let’s try and remember to be thankful other days as well. And…maybe not go black Friday shopping? I think it’s silly that we have such a tradition. Did you know some stores are open at 8 this evening? That’s taking time away from their families. Not too thankful.

Anyhow, have a good one!

I may have thought today was Tuesday…

Sorry about that! Anyway, I hope everyone is having a good day. Some people may already be getting ready for Thanksgiving, which now that I know what day it is, is tomorrow. Trey and I decided to try it on our own this year. It’s the first time we’ll be trying a lot of this on our own, but I think we’ll be ok. We went for a ham instead of a turkey because our store only had massive turkeys. I don’t even think we would have gotten done with the leftovers until next month. So, ham it was, and since ham is one of the best things ever I’m thinking it was a good decision.

I got some time off from work because of the holiday, and I thought that I would get all this stuff done. I didn’t achieve nearly as much as I thought I would because I was so worn out from work. I’ve always thought it was a little weird that we have to work ourselves thin just to just time off and be exhausted our whole break. I don’t know, maybe that’s just me, but I know for certain that I couldn’t work a nine to five job for an extended period of time. Some people work really well with a set schedule, but I think I need mine to be a bit more varied.

Since I’m on the subject of work I’ve been thinking a lot about what exactly I want to pursue for my career. Writing will always be a priority, but I can’t really make a steady living off of that income. I always loved my creative writing classes when I was in college, and I’m considering what it would take to try and teach others how to better their writing. I need to see what kind of credentials that would take, but it sounds like a fun opportunity. Even if it was just as a part time thing and I did it for children or something I think it would be fun to help people better their self expression through writing. Any thoughts?

It’s a rather new development, and it’s been bouncing around in my head for a few days, but I thought I’d see if anyone had an opinion on the matter. Even a “good luck” or “sounds cool” or “…maybe not….” would at least give me the push I need to see if people would actually be interested in this type of thing.

Anyhow, I have to go to the laundry that I needed to get done yesterday. I’m down to one pair of sweatpants, and they are the color of Barney. You probably didn’t want that much information…oh well, you have it now!

Happy Wednesday, dear Readers!
