Monday Rambles

Hello, my dearly neglected little blog-thingie.  I just haven't felt much like working on blog posts lately.  My house is a mess.  I'm fighting the urge to sit down and read comic books all day.  I upgraded to Windows 8.1 and it helpfully uninstalled my printer.  I'm going through stuff like mad at the booth--comic books and Christmas trees in particular, although ornaments are starting to sell too.  Thanksgiving is coming.  And i still have too trashed vehicles in front of the house!  In a little less than a month, we head to Arkansas to see Keith's mom.  I'm house-sitting the week before that.  I've got tons to do and am running out of time in which to do them.  And that includes blog posts.

Thankfully (heh!), today is the only day I work this week.  Well, I do have to go to a training tomorrow, but that's more sitting and looking surly at all the extra stuff I'm going to be asked to do without pay than actually working.

Speaking of the cars, they are supposed to be towed this week.  I hope so.  I am tired of being rubberneck central.  I was on the bus last week going past the house.  Everyone turned to look at the smashed cars, while I sunk in my seat!

We're still waiting for the paperwork to confirm things, but both vehicles have been declared to be totaled.  We should have a new car by Wednesday.  I'm ready for this horrid thing to be over.  Whoever did it has gotten away and not been found at this point, and there is little hope that he/she will ever be.

I decided to take the storage space at the Peddlers Mall, which is going to involve closing my religion wall and moving things around.  We started taking stuff over for storage yesterday and have already mostly cleared out the living room.  My hope is to have everything in the storage space by the end of the year.  I'm already finding things that I had forgotten about that should have gone to the booth ages ago.  I'm going to spend tomorrow and Wednesday at the booth, kind of getting things organized and ready for Black Friday.

I also finally cleaned up this disaster of a desk yesterday.  I pulled a whole tub of stuff that had kind of accumulated here that didn't belong.  Now I'm trying to figure out how to deal with this:

Sheesh!  It's a wonder I could find  the computer!

This week, I'm hoping to feast like no one's business.  I got a lot to be thankful for this year!  I hope you and yours have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

We're doing ours on Wednesday night as we have been driving to Raleigh for a weekend getaway the last few years over Thanksgiving.

Altogether we will have 9 adults and 5 kids!!

Hope you get everything done you want to or reconcile with whatever you don't!

Must be the time of year. I say, go ahead and read those comics! I will admit, I have been a big procrastinator lately. My guilty pleasure is Dr. Mario! Can't believe I'm admitting it!

Anyway, have a very happy Thanksgiving!
