Peachy Keen

Well, this school stuff is really pissing me off; but I don’t mean school itself, I am still really in love with learning, doing the work, and love the environment (the way it’s all done online). It’s the circumstances of life these days that is getting me down; every time I have time to sit and study, something comes up or messes up, something always seems to come along and ruin what concentration I have and then that something takes up all the available study time I had. Sometimes the school site is down, or my cable connection is having issues, or someone comes over for a visit, or someone is ill or hungry and needs my attention, or the housework has fallen behind, or the freaking sky has fallen and I need to pick it up and fix it. I feel as though I can’t win because of all the road blocks that keep popping up.

I’m not giving up on school yet; I’ll get it done one way or another. I have to find a way to push through and keep going, right? I am so trying to push those damn blocks out of the way, I gotta think further ahead than usual, I suppose. The car is broke down again so it’s no good for pushing; I wonder if it will ever get fixed but if it doesn’t I’ve been trying to learn the bus routes and taxi costs. Also, looking at car rentals in case I need a car for a few days or something.

I just keep thinking that using public transport will end up saving money in the long run. No more gas tank, no more insurance, no more maintenance. But along with those come no more freedom of movement anytime I want or need it, which doesn’t sound like a lot but is tremendous when I think that I have to give up garage sales in the summer and midnight fast food runs; and the option of always being able to make a quick getaway out of almost any location. I’ll just have to try it out for a while and see how it works out, it’s not like I have a choice now anyway. lol

It seems like there has been more company than usual around here these days. My sister came by a couple of weeks ago and then again the following week. It seemed like it had been ages and lifetimes since we last spoke; and maybe it has. She says that she’ll be moving back to the metro area in the summer and, by the way, she is seven months pregnant with her fourth child! “OMG!” is all I can really say about it.

Tiger really enjoyed their company; he loves having new warm bodies to sleep on.

What else is going on? Si is doing ok, he’s in and out a lot these days, but he’s doing well despite this. I think I’ve become a real hermit since the car broke down. I just stay indoors and most of the time I have to figure out if it is day or night; my schedule is all screwed up. I really gotta get out more often. I miss my Sinn; I would always get out with her.

So, that’s an update thus far. Life is peachy keen as usual. : l
