I had a nice mellow weekend, first one since I got home! Saturday was a baby shower and today was crafting Burning Man stuff and unpacking more boxes. Both nights I was happily in bed by 11pm and slept till 8am!

And I just had a lovely long hot shower and I have clean sheets on the bed! Yay!

Had a relaxing weekend myself, it would have been better with some sun, but I can't complain :)

I was up too early but didn't want to go back to sleep , didn't want to oversleep and be late to go to NJ at the funeral home. I showered and did my hair but still need to get dressed and drop books off at the library before heading out to NJ. Coffee does not wake me up nor give me energy, it never did. I need a good dose of energy . Feels like I was run over by a truck.

Been to the library and now waiting for hubby to return from shopping for a pair of pants and sport jacket. It really irks me that he waits til the last minute , he could have gone over the weekend. His middle name is procrasinator.

We should have left half hour ago !! Still here.. waiting for him to come back from dropping dog off at the kennel. He still has to change his clothes.

What is on my mind, and has been on my mind, is the kind and warm responses I got when I posted about the loss of my dog Bailey. ("In memory of my best friend".

I am so touched by the compassion and understanding shown to me by the people here on DC-people whom I have never met, and likely never will.

From this day forward, whenever I catch myself being cynical about societys attitudes in this day and age, I'll need only to recall how the people at DC rallied around me, in what has been for me personally a heartbreaking tragedy, and I'll remember that there are still good people in the world.

When can I expect my stimulus check? I just filed my personal return in July. Should I expect it around the end of the year?

Did most of you receive yours'?

Today is my Sunday.... Have to work Fri-sun.... would be mon too but we're closed.
I was really worried about working more hours, going from 16 a week to 30 or so.... and leaving the kids so much.... DH will let the house get all messy..... etc.....
Guess what..... I"M OK AND I CANT WAIT TO GO TOMORROW!!!
Not that I don't love 'em, but it turns out I like speaking to adults sometimes. :)
And housework can still be done after a 6 hour shift. Not so difficult.

Happy to have a place to say just what is up here. First and most important, I have the day off. I have been cleaning and cleaning. Listening to my random music collection, dancing and singing (hmmmm may want to shut the windows!) Been a yucky week with a fridge not working, water break in the street in front of my house so my water is coming from the neighbor's house and just waiting for someone ANYONE to come and take care of either of these problems. So nice to have DC to keep me company.
