kitties, work and happy thoughts

I’ve written this post a few times now and all of them felt like whining so let’s try this again.

The kitties are up to date on their shots and I have to work at rebuilding the trust between Thea and I since I had to give her daily double doses of medicine this last week and she had to go to the vet twice with shots given both times, but her UTI is gone and that’s what matters.

She’ll forgive me. Eventually… I think. ;)

Work is stressful, more so than it used to be, but I think my new boss is definitely in my corner and doing his best to run interference. He’s giving me several tasks to focus on and he spent a lot of time asking me about my management experience during our last conversation. He’s now sending me to a management course in Tampa sometime this summer and I’m taking that as a good sign.

The Walking Dead season finale is tonight. Its 90 minutes and Negan is making his first appearance. This makes me fearful for my favorite characters, but Jeffery Dean Morgan is going to do a fabulous job with the character. Of that I am sure. Expect more Walking Dead shorts in the near future. ;)

I did take some time this weekend to clean up my tags and, sulien, the original series I'm working on has it's own tag now (s: writ & wisdom) and this is series I'm going to use for the heroinebigbang.

Summary: Deanna Monroe reminded Buffy of the doctors forced upon her after the arson incident. This was most definitely not a good thing.

the martyrs, the saints, the saviors.. they all end up the same way

Friday night was the night to decompress. I saw “The Witch” and went to Friday’s afterwards for some much needed beer and appetizers. Their boneless wings in the cider glaze reminded me of McDonald’s chicken nuggets dipped in honey—which is a fond memory from my childhood. :)

The movie was... different? It had fantastic scenery and fabulous acting, but the plot/ending left something to be desired. It was definitely more suspense than horror and it left a lot to the imagination which was interesting and a nice change of pace for that genre.

I will say it was disturbing. That’s the best descriptive word I can give for it. *nods* Distrubing.

I did manage to finish my picfor1000 short earlier today, but it’s at 1022 words so I have some editing to do to get it down to a 1000. I might save that until tomorrow so I can start watching Fuller House tonight.

Don’t judge my love for mindless fluff. We all need it from time to time. ;)

i sold my soul to a three piece

First two official days of being on the credit union's payroll and I somehow managed to obtain an hour and a half of overtime. Monday I worked a little over nine hours and today was 8 and a half. I'm hoping to work just eight tomorrow. Wish me luck?

On the organizing front I’m torn between cubbies and an actual little dresser for my closet. I’ve got a 33” wall to work with which isn’t much, but I think the cubbies would offer more storage solutions with some floating shelves above it. *taps chin* How hard is it to install floating shelves… I might need a stud finder for that one.

Maybe I can borrow one and not tell my guy friends why I’m borrowing it. They tend to think they need to come over and “help” which I appreciate when I ask for it, but sometimes I want to just do things on my own and if I screw up so be it. :D

Tonight I have written... this entry. That sorta counts... right?
