mythicalgirl: (hooray for me)
The last two days have actually been pretty good - got lots done and ended on a positive note.  We...won't talk about Monday and Tuesday.  Really.  Let's just pretend those days didn't happen.  These are not the droids you are looking for.

And now* I'm off until Monday so I get a three day weekend!  I know, I probably shouldn't be this excited over an extra day off but seriously, if you were living in my head right now** you would totally understand. 

No plans.  I should probably clean the house because damn.  Otherwise I got nothing.  I may be creative and write or paint.  I might go run around.  Or I might indulge in bump-on-a-log-ism.  Three days to do whatever I want.

I'm giddy.  GIDDY I tell you!

* actually I have to do a production move tonight but that will only take 10 minutes so I'm not counting it.

** be thankful you aren't in my head with me.  Its kind of a mess in there most days, its so full of work stuff that there's just no room.  Plus, eww.

The past weekend was a good one, if I do say so myself.  Saturday saw me cleaning the gutters, pulling weeds, running the trimmer, spraying some weed killer (noticing a pattern yet?) and finally doing a quick run to the grocery store.  Sunday saw me going to see a matinee performance of Avenue Q at the local contemporary theatre with friends.  Over the two days I also read a book (Doctored Evidence by Donna Leon) and watched episodes 1-5 of Downton Abbey, Season 1. 

I suppose it is a good thing that the weekend went so well because today, well, today has not been a good day.  Oh, work is fine.  The Project From Hell continues apace but so far the change in project manager hasn't had much affect on me.  I still have a ton of work to do, which I'm getting through as well as I can.  No, work today is fine.  But I'm not.  That situational depression is back with a vengeance, making it hard to concentrate and harder to care.  I've actually managed to get several things accomplished today - on two projects no less - but I feel like an unmotivated loser all the same.  

Seems today is one of my crazier crazy days.  I am much better now than I was when I first got up this morning at 6:30 but I will be the first to admit that I'm not great.  *sigh*

I plan on going to gym for a bit despite the fact that my legs (and butt) are sore from Saturday.  Once home I hope to do some work on the painting and maybe read for a while - probably a cozy mystery as I'm not in the mood for anything more involved right now.  I'll take my meds, go to bed, and hope that I'm a little less crazy tomorrow.

Work and everything else in the world is still playing havoc with my ability to post.  I like being busy but this is getting ridiculous!

The garden is pretty much done for the year.  The bean plant tried to go another round - alas, no luck.  Poor thing is all wilty and done for I'm afraid.  The tomato plant, however, is still going strong.  I've eaten more tomatoes this year than I have in, well, ever!  And they are sooooo good.  The carrots finally came in and sucked ass so they went into the compost/critter food pile.  Still, the whole garden experiment went well overall so yes, I believe I will do it again next year.  

On the reading front I finished Crooked Little Vein by Warren Ellis the other day.  Disturbing and funny and irreverent and just plain wacko - I loved every minute of it!  I also read Madame Xanadu: Disenchanted, which I also enjoyed immensely.  I'll keep an eye out for volume two.  And I'm currently reading Saturn's Children by Charles Stross.  This is my first Stross book and I am liking it so far but I'm not glued to it.  Maybe once I get past the first 100 pages it will get to the point where I can't put it down. 

And now I'm off to get a haircut and go to the grocery store before coming home to clean the house, prune plants, dismantle part of the garden,,,etc, etc, blah, blah, blah.
