A Friday Ramble
So, today I am stumped. I’ve been sitting in my chair for like an hour now and I have yet to think of anything I really want to write about. So I guess it’s a rambling kind of day because I haven’t a clue where to start with anything else. I thought about pulling out one of the posts I did on one of my other blogs but none of them seem right. There are plenty that I like, sure, but none that seem to fit today. So I’ll have to actually write something and try to make it interesting in some form, I guess.
Today I’m waiting for the maintenance guy. He’s very nice, but always feel a little awkward sitting around while he’s here. I feel like I should be doing something productive, or interesting, or not be here at all. I’m always here when he comes so he probably thinks I don’t have a life. Which, I mean, is kind of true, but I don’t want him to know that. Last time he was here he told me I should go out side since it was a nice day. I’d love to go outside, but I do so hate that hill. Even walking up it is a pain and it’s supposed to get pretty warm today. I keep waiting for the cooler weather they keep promising me and it just keeps getting pushed back. Last week it was Wednesday is supposed to be in the 70s. Today it’s not supposed to go down until Sunday. I do wish they would make up their mind. Will it cool down or not?
Anyway, we have a big hole in a hose under our kitchen sink, which is the worst. I don’t know how long it’s actually been there, but it’s been a while. We knew there was water coming out somewhere, but we couldn’t figure out where until last night when we saw it spurting out of the hose like a fountain. It’s pretty gross. We’ve also learned that just because you can put in a work order online doesn’t mean you should. In fact, if you want them to ever come you should not put in your work order online. We put one in about our toilet being suspicious a few months ago and they never appeared. The toilet at least resolved itself. This isn’t going to get fixed on its own. So my wonderful husband is going to call them today and I’m going to sit awkwardly in my chair and pretend to be busy, I guess. I could go back into the back room and write some letters I’ve been meaning to write. I have a letter sitting next to me that I keep looking at and thinking, “I need to respond to that” and then getting distracted and forgetting about it until it’s too late.
Or I could just sit and read Terry Pratchett on my Kindle. It’ll probably look dumb, but at least I’ll be reading Terry Pratchett. I’ve been wanting to read him for years and I’ve only ever managed to get through one. Someone gave me a bunch of his books in digital form and I can finally read them now, I’m very excited. I started Reaper Man yesterday. I really should look up a list of his books and which ones connect to which. I know there are some that are in sequence and some that just stand alone and some that reference others but aren’t necessarily in sequence. It’s all kind of a big jumble of people and places and plots and I’d like to get it all straight so I know where to start and where to go.
Alright, I think I’ve rambled at you guys enough for one day. Next week I should have more interesting things to talk about. We’re going rock climbing tomorrow so you can hear all about that, and it may or may not be my birthday as well, so you know, there’s that. I think I’m just feeling a little burnt out. Perhaps I’ll take next week to relax and not leave the apartment on crazy adventures. We’ll see. Have a love day, my friends, and a lovely weekend as well.
