Weekly blogger

I don't know what it is but I haven't felt much like blogging lately. But that's not all; I haven't felt much like working or going out either. I think it might have to do with the changing seasons.. it's getting colder and darker and I just want to curl up on the couch with the cats.

That's exactly what I did with myself last Wednesday and Thursday nights when J was still out of town on training. I didn't choose to be alone so I was lonely. Really lonely. And the worst part is that he leaves again this Sunday for another course. Another week alone.

But Friday was nice. I got into work early so I got to leave early. I was home maybe half an hour when J got home. It was so nice to see him. We celebrated by spending the night together - we went out for dinner, did some shopping (I got a new coat) and hung out. The cats were possibly more happy than I was to see J, especially Rolo who would not stop purring.

Saturday J convinced me that he should put up the Christmas lights. I'm thinking it's only October, he's thinking Christmas!!! We don't always see eye-to-eye when it comes to Christmas things. He started putting up the lights, but didn't finish. We did a little more shopping before heading over to S&L's for a lazy Saturday.

Sunday was a weird day. We got home early afternoon. The cats were obviously super happy to see us. J was running around like mad trying to do laundry so he would have clean boxers and socks to wear to work Monday. I thought I would nap. I had just fallen asleep when S&L came over. They were looking at open houses and were using our place as home base for houses in our area.

We went and saw the grossest, most disgusting house I've ever set foot in. The previous owners went bankrupt and obviously didn't clean ever. It was so gross. I gagged when we went to the basement because of the smell. Too bad because the house is on a nice street and isn't a bad layout, but to make it live-able, S&L would have to spend big bucks. Not worth it. Things picked up from there when we went through model houses, which are always spotless and decorated all nice.

Next was birthday dinner for J's dad at his grandparents' place. We were both exhausted but lasted through dinner and cake and presents and puppy licks. Not much longer. We left and only stopped to get some much-needed fruit before getting home and collapsing into bed.

Monday (yesterday) night, J decided to change the headlights in the car. One of the HIDs had burnt out (or was otherwise not working) and J wants to put the car back to stock so we can use it as a trade in on a new car (more on that later). I watched tv while he worked away. Changing the headlights is not a small task with our car.

The big news from today is that I had an interview this morning. It was the most relaxed interview I'd ever had. Two managers (females in their early 30s) asked me a bunch of standard questions and since my current job is so similar to this one, my examples were all recent and relevant. I think it went well. I will have to do some soul-searching if offered the position, weigh out my options, but I will deal with that if and when it happens.

It was rainy and gross all day but then it snowed. For the first time this year and it's still going. The snow isn't just melting when it hits the ground, it's coating the whole world in white. Insane.

Now we're all caught up. I can't say it won't be another week before I post again, but you never know.


  1. you spent the night together?! Hussy! Man this snow is OUT of control. Kind of awesome except now I need to dig out my winter wear.

    Way to tease with a car and a job...see you soon?


  2. I hereby declare next week a 'no lonely K' week. This dreary no-sunlight season is no time to be sitting at home alone so call and come over. Or call, and I'll come over. Maybe with wife in tow :-)

  3. Jon looks so happy in the picture of him with the snowy car and falling snow! : )
