It’s Been Awhile

Wow. I can’t believe how little I’ve posted this month. I guess I haven’t felt that I’ve had much to add. I’ve been somewhat down because a shock in my bank balance caused me to revisit my budget. The good news is that for the first time since my divorce, I actually have a budget that doesn’t show a red number at the end. Of course a few minor concessions have been made (i.e., no more cable tv) but for the most part, I think I should be able to live within my means.

And as usual, the minute I get a budget set up, an extra expense pops up. I had forgotten that I had a hair appointment scheduled for last night. After some amount of hemming and hawing, I decided to go ahead and get my hair done. It is now a very dark brown with bright red streaking. Very cool and just in time for Halloween. After 2 weeks the red will fade to a copper so it won’t stay this dramatic.

Apparently, one of our local news stations has film footage of what could be the missing explosives from when they were covering the local troops back in April of 2003. http://www.kstp.com/article/stories/S3748.html?cat=1. There’s a lot of debate surrounding this issue. I’m sure someone’s head is going to roll–but it won’t be anyone of any significance, just some poor sod who didn’t give the order to guard the bunker.

That’s all I really have for now–I suppose I should get back to work.

Happy Birthday to sabbysteg! Isn’t this supposed to be a national holiday or something???

I’ve been so tired lately. I’m going back on a multi-vitamin because this is beginning to get ridiculous.

Finished a great book and an okay book over the past couple of days. I would recommend The Red Tent to any female. It’s based on an episode in the Bible but expanded and developed into a story about women and womanhood. The other book I read was Confessions of a Shopaholic. I suppose it was funny, and I had a hard time putting it down, but I think it hit just a bit too close to home. I can still remember when I had creditors calling me on a regular basis–and I still occasionally get anxiety attacks over my finances. Throughout a lot of the book, I was actually cringeing.

I watched Down with Love last night. I’d wanted to see it when it was in theaters, but didn’t have the time. I absolutely loved that movie because I think I needed a laugh. But then, I love older movies–especially the romantic comedies. The clothes and the music were perfect! I may have to tape this one for future viewing.

I also joined FlyLady because I keep putting off my cleaning and organizing until it gets to be a huge project. I’ve skipped a few days, but I’m beginning to see a huge difference–especially in the kitchen. Of course, the 15-20 daily emails may start getting a little annoying.

In 5

In the style of sweet_pickles

1. Feeling worn down and exhausted lately. Think I may be fighting some sort of bug as I also have warm/cold flashes (never really hot).

2. I was elected treasurer of our local chapter of Women of Today.

3. Someone left a message on my Dad’s phone asking me to read tarot for a party. Sounds fun, but….how did they get my Dad’s number–I only give out the store’s number….

4. I totally suck at football picks.

5. I forgot how busy election season is.

The energy meter is pegged right about 10 miles/hour right now. I’m hoping that the quick stop at Starbucks over lunch helps to remedy that. I’m actually feeling rather lackadaisical.

The past weekend was great. On Friday, I got to see Bush lose his cool on live television. On Saturday, I took an interesting class on angels and spirit guides.

I also had a good number of readings. The store closes at 6 and at 5:15, I’d only had 3 readings. Not great, but there was a expo going on, and I don’t usually get any customers on those days. Right then, 3 women walked in who all wanted their cards read. We told them it usually takes 30 minutes. “Well, can you squeeze us in?”. I looked at the store owner and said, “Sure, let’s go!”. Okay, so I ran a bit over, but they were happy, and we had a good time. I think they each got about 20 minutes.

Saturday night, one of my favorite local bands, The Irish Minstrels, were playing at the Blue Moon, so I dragged poor <lj user=”g00fy_blonde” along. We joined my friend A and her daughter C. It was packed! The band was somewhat surprised because not too long ago, they were playing to only a handful of customers. They even got an encore and a standing ovation–the first I’ve seen at the Blue Moon.

I don’t remember much of Sunday–it was the usual coffee with A and C. I hung out at their place for awhile and had some jasmine tea. Yummm….Then I headed over to my mom’s to watch Fahrenheit 9/11. Have to give my mom and her husband credit–they watched the entire thing and didn’t bash it much at all–considering how conservative they are.

I had yesterday off being that it was Columbus Day. I got so much accomplished. I took one whole bag of garbage out of my car (now to get it washed!), dropped a box of books off at the women’s shelter, dropped 2 boxes of books at the library (surprisingly, they were open), cleaned my bathroom, got a load of laundry done, made dinner, and got caught up on all my tarot readings. However, I still need to post pictures from the meme. Oh well, I need something to look forward to doing.

The weekend was beautiful with the trees bursting with color and this morning was a fog so thick, you couldn’t see across the highway. It was actually rather enjoyable to drive in and try to make out various objects I see every morning on my way to work.

And speaking of work, I guess I should get back to it!
