Solstice

Filed under: Chelsea,Home,Life,Spirituality — Tags: , , , — ecogeek @ 6:37 pm

Solstice is upon us.  I’ll later post a picture of what I got (I didn’t think to do that until *after* I was charging the camera), but for now, here is a list:

  • Two Books
  • Modern Warfare 2
  • 3200 Microsoft points. (For rockband)
  • New Socks (so comfy) and Darned Socks (also comfy)
  • picture for my office
  • $30 gift card to best buy
  • And the biggest is a present for both me and Chelsea:  Canon Rebel XS

So without further ado, here is a link to the first round of pics I took with the camera.  (Well the ones that weren’t culled.)

Linky

And here are the five pictures culled from the second set of pics I took.

Inti and Supay, checking to see if the other one has food.

Old Nest

Winter Berries

Inti

Inti again.  Doesn’t he look a little intense there?  I think the clicking was freaking him out.  🙂

Expect more pictures soon.

Ugh.

Cleaning sucks.  I’m glad I’m done though.  Well until tomorrow.  I cleaned the degu cage, mopped the utility room, vacuumed the bedroom, hallway and office, and put up laundry.

It sounds like a lot, but I only had so much to do because I let myself get backlogged.  Oh well.  On track now.  Tomorrow, I just have the daily chores so that’s good.

Looking forward, and dreading my trip to Jeff City tomorrow for the health care town hall.  It should be interesting.  Now that I have a new perspective, it seems a whole lot more urgent.  And I know that if it doesn’t happen now, it’ll never happen.  At least not in our time.

Oh, and sending off the ol’ resume.  🙂

Update

Filed under: Home,Life,Work — Tags: , , — ecogeek @ 2:35 am

I need to update more often.  Things have been sucking lately so I haven’t been.  Though, that’s not really an excuse since some people actually like to read that kind of stuff.

Filed for unemployment today.  I hope I’m not on it long.  It’s going to help, not sure how much yet, but hopefully enough.  The more this goes on,  (I know it’s only been one day officially without a job) the more I feel like I need to stop focusing on Columbia and cut my losses.  I love my house, but there are more jobs elsewhere.   And even though I’m applying in several places, there is mainly one I keep thinking about, the Twin Cities.

I think I’m actually missing them more and more.  I know that life would be difficult.  Cost of living is higher, have to sell the house, buy a new one, etc.  But, I don’t know…

At least I wouldn’t have to be too hot.  🙂

Basically, I’m open to whatever the Universe is willing to give to me.  I’m actively working trying to open avenues for the Universe to toss something at me, I’m not layin’ on my butt.  🙂  If your listening Universe, A winning Powerball would be nice…

It does seem like the Universe is setting something into motion.  Chelsea missed the signup date for the start of school so she gets to spend this “time off” that I have with me.  If I were to get a job that didn’t start for a few weeks or a month, and I was guaranteed, like in writing, we could theoretically go on a mini-vacation.  I would have my lump sump vacation money in hand from work, both of us would have time available, it just seems like the thing to do.

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.  Me, I’m just hoping for something

Just a day.

Today could have been better, could have been worse. All in all, not bad. Played a lot of fable2. (They ripped me off. When I went into the spire for 10 years, they didn’t give me the profits and rent I should have earned. Oh well.)

Tried to participate in a live draft but yahoo seriously failed there. By the time I got in, my whole team was pretty much drafted.

Played some rockband 2 with chelsea and then watched a couple of jerichos. Really good acting. I’m sad it got canceled.

Not looking forward to last week of work…

I took this on what was to me, yesterday, but was actually after midnight so, counts for today. 🙂

Aren’t degu piles cute. I want a few more to make the pile bigger. 🙂
