she said it’s cold outside and she hands me my raincoat

September 12, 2006

It’s raining outside and I love the way it sounds. It’s so peaceful and relaxing. I’m tired even though I’ve only just now been awake for more than 12 hours.

Today was a cheerful day. I did things that made me happy. I forgot to mention yesterday how happy it makes me to see gas in the low $2.30s. It’s a beautiful thing. Today I took lunch to Amie over at her work, which used to be my work. I saw a lot of people that I never see anymore but that I really enjoy seeing. It was good times. After that I went to Walmart and picked up my contacts. It’s about freaking time. I’m so tired of wearing my glasses.

Then I went to Ross and returned some shoes I bought the other day with the intention of them being my alternate/comfortable work shoes, but after carrying them around in my bag for 4 days I didnt’ really feel like wearing them. So I returned them and bought a bra. I wish I had money to spend $40something every time I need a new bra. I just don’t like the other, cheaper ones as much. I tried on about 10 and found one that was passable. After that I wandered around Target and found the skirt that I bought for super cheap but needed altering actually in my size, so now I can just return the too big one and not worry about fixing them. I love skirts and they have these great knit skirts at Target half off now – $6.48. I got 3 of them the other day but one was way too big.

After the shopping mission I went over to Jamie’s for a minute until I met my mom and brother back over at Target. I was giving him a ride up into Atlanta to meet Joy so they could go to the Shakira concert. It was nice to see my mother dearest for a minute. Then Peter and I drove up into Atl, all the while discussing the fantastic music of our day and other riveting topics. We met up with a friend at the Village, found Joy and journeyed over to Moe’s where we ate supper. Somewhere along the way it started pouring down rain and hasn’t really stopped. It’s always fun hanging out with my siblings. It helps to get my mind off me and my silly little life. They’re so much fun. After that I came home and watched tv with my lovely Amie. Life is good.

I think I’m getting out of my funk. I’ve talked to more people in the last 24 hours than in the last week it seems. Now that I finally have a line I need to start setting up habits for the other areas of my life. Work has dominated my life for so long now and so many times I feel like that’s all I do. I work, then I come home and recover from work, until it’s time to get ready to go back to work. I don’t want that to be all that my life involves. And it feels like it is right now. I feel like I’m living the average life. I’ve always felt sorry for people whose lives are simply work and go home and now I realize that right now that’s all my life is as well. And for me, work isn’t exactly the most mentally challenging, stimulating thing. Sometimes I feel like my brain is rotting out of my ears. Now that I feel a little less funky I hope to get my focus back where it should be.

As for now, sleep calls. I must answer.

PS. I just realized that my last blog was my 100th blog. Not much of a mile mark blog in my opinion, but hey, that’s life isn’t it. It always seems that things you intend to be momentous rarely are. Instead momentous things usually happen when you least expect them. I think it’s been nearly a year since I started blogging as well. Good times.
