currently watching: my cat from hell
today i woke up in a really good mood. i didn't wake up until 1 in the afternoon, and it felt really good to get a decent night's sleep. i took a muscle relaxer before i went to bed since my neck has been giving me problems again, so that must have helped. i avoid taking them on school nights because last time i tried doing that i wound up sleeping through the alarm and the kids were all super late for school.
i'm trying to read the first chapters for all my classes next week. so far i have the first chapter read in my cultural anthropology book, my cultural diversity in the u.s. book, & half of the first chapter read in my intro to human services book. i still need to finish reading that, & then the first chapter in my lifespan development book. the subject i am most excited about learning is lifespan development, but the class i am most excited to attend is cultural diversity. it's the honors class, & i am kinda nervous because this is an all new experience to me, but more than anything i guess i am looking forward to it.
i helped snookms' sister clean some remodeled apartments over off of pendleton pike on the east side the other day at the last minute. she texted me around 4 in the afternoon asking if i knew of anyone that needed some cash & wanted to work, & even though i wasn't dying for cash i knew we could use it, so i told her i'd be there around six, and worked straight through until midnight. we cleaned 3 apartments which wasn't too bad considering it was my first time doing those apartments. the worst part was cleaning the tubs in the bigger bathrooms, because the construction workers left them looking pretty gross.
yesterday i drove to the gas station down the street to get some soda for the kids before they got home from school & there was a stand-up dildo strategically placed on the sungate sign that sits at the entrance of our subdivision. i thought it was pretty fucking hilarious & was dying to know who did it. it was gone this afternoon, though, & i was actually kind of glad because that IS kinda moded to have a dildo greeting everyone coming into our neighborhood. not the best first impression to make.
my cat from hell is on & i actually really love this show. the cat whisperer seems to be a really good listener & makes good inferences in order to best help the cat from hell's personal situations. cat psychology 101 should've been my jam.
i guess i'm gonna go now because i ran out of shit to talk about.
