Another Happy Dance

I finished this latch hook a couple of weeks ago. It's available for sale.

Really Stupid People

So I'm driving into work this morning. Moderate to heavy traffic on a 2-lane highway where I'm averaging the speed limit or a little above when some dumb ass bitch in a suit behind me starts flashing her lights. I ignored her the first time as there is no place to go and I have cars in front of me so I can't speed up for her pretentious behind. So then, she flashes me again. I throw my hands in the air like what do you want. She starts waving for me to go faster or move out of her way. Um...dumb bitch, I have a black Jeep in front of me and cars right next to me. Where the fuck do you expect me to go? Bear in mind, I'm going the damn speed limit and over it. So eventually, like I usually do, I get into the right hand lane near my exit when it's safe and then the bitch starts following me because I'm passing cars on my left. passing cars because I'm going the speed limit or above in traffic!!!! So eventually this woman passes me because the traffic in front of me has slowed down-maybe because the speed reduced-and she starts waving her arms at me as she passes. What an idiot. So I then had the pleasure of watching her try to weave in and out of traffic. I'm almost hoping that she got into an accident so she'll learn her lesson. Geesh, some people!

My Little Boy

This is Tiger-he was just looking so cute.

Zeitgeist's First Full Day in NC

So Zeit and the rest of us survived the first day. Most of the day she spent hiding in between some boxes. But, when she came out, everyone was aware of it. Hissing at everyone. Talking to me. Not sure what she wanted other than to make herself be known. Doesn't help that when she's hissing at everyone, the others try talking with her in their whining tones. Sigh...makes it difficult to try to sleep. I know that Zeit isn't happy. She looks outside like she wants to be out. She's never fully gotten along with other cats. I'm just hoping that this all calms down sooner than later.

I survived the emotional weekend

I made it to NYC and back. Took me 9 hours to get to Scott's thanks to NYC traffic on Staten Island-I was very quickly reminded why I don't live there anymore. Scott and I talked and went out for Mexican. It was difficult to see him again after all this time. I know that it was difficult for him as well considering the reason why I was there. There were several times where I couldn't even look at him because I knew that I would just break down. But Zeitgeist was very happy to see me-not sure if it was because she remembered who I was or if it was just because I was a human who would give her attention.
I met up with Jeremy-the ex-husband-and we spoke for a while about how our lives are not going as well as we would like. It was nice to talk with him again. That was always one thing we did well.
I then met up with Jerome-an ex-to go out for some Indian food.
Then it was back to Scott's for me to sleep and leave at stupid early yesterday morning. Took me 8 hours to get back home with Zeit. And then to deal with all the cats! So far everyone is keeping their distance from Zeit. It helps that she attempts to hiss but sounds more like a hacking cough whenever one of them comes even a little bit close. She seems to appreciate that she can see the outside from the couch. There's only been one swatting episode between Suzie and Zeit. I'm hoping that will be all. So my mission today is to relax and get the couple of errands that I need to do done quickly.

Bad Blogger

Sorry for disappearing for over a week. Lots of things are happening. One...I'm still trying to get over whatever physical ailment decides to hit me. Seems like every week it's something new.
Two-I'm heading to NYC this weekend and I'm not really looking forward to it. I'll be seeing Scott. Yes, the ex that broke my heart. Crazy? Possibly. He's moving in with his fiancee and cannot bring his 18-year old cat Zeitgeist. He asked me if I would take her in as he knows how much I love that silly cat if he couldn't find someone local to take her. So now I get to drive 9 hours up, spend the night, and drive 9 hours back down. It's going to be pretty emotional for me and for him as well. Of course, for different reasons. I probably will be going out to dinner with my friend Jerome-still trying to figure out where I want to go.
Three-I do have some happy dances that I can share-but of course the pictures are not on this computer. I'll post them as soon as I can.

So where have I been?

Simply put...I've been sick. With a fever that went up to 102.6, sore throat, sinus issues, etc. I'm still not 100% but certainly better than what I was.

Forgot to say

Joey bought me a beautiful ring a couple of weeks ago. Thank you Joey.

I Met Tori Amos it was in my dream...a very very vivid dream. I've been going through a lot of stress about money, life, and the pursuit of happiness (just like most everyone else out there) and I've always been able to find strength in Tori's music, in particular one song-Jackie's Strength. It happened to be the song that Tori was singing when I met her in my dream. So I'm thinking that's just my subconscious mind telling me not to worry so much and everything will work out.

My Uncle at the Super Bowl

That's my uncle in the referee outfit. For any of you who watched the halftime show, he was the one who called the delay of game on The E Street Band. Needless to say, I'm very proud of him for his 5 seconds on stage in front of millions.
