Work and other stuff

I am currently standing behind the front desk wondering where my other 18 guaranteed arrivals are this evening. It is getting dark outside which really means nothing in the grand scheme of things.

I know that as soon as I walk away from the desk to go heat up my supper that a crowd of people will walk through the front door. That's how that works.

I had a pretty good weekend.

Saturday: Chris took Beth with him to Etown and they didn't get home until almost 3am. He & Jamie met up and went hunting and she went with them. I picked up Dylan for the afternoon and then when his mom picked him up, she took Nick home with her. I got a really good nap. I went to the grocery store and did the shopping and picked up Nick (at almost 11pm) and I met a cute little kitten. She came up on the porch and I figured she would go home if I went inside and when I came out 2 hours later, she was still sitting on the porch. We ended up letting her come in and then when Chris got home, he said if I wanted to keep her he didn't mind so for now... we have a kitten.

Sunday: I got up, went and got some cat food and the like and came back to the house. We discovered that the kitten was really very very hungry. I made roast with rice & gravy, honey glazed carrots, green beans with potatoes, candied yams, biscuits and a lemon cake for supper. I rarely get the opportunity to cook so I took advantage of it. The food was phenonmenal. I ended up not going to bed until about 1:30am.

And today: I slept in after Chris left. I got up and got ready for work and went to the store and then to the little post office to mail a package to Washington DC. It hasn't been overly busy at work tonight. I have guaranteed arrivals left but we are sold out of rooms. For tonight and tomorrow.

I have my schedule for the next two weeks and I'm happy. I'm off Thursday and Friday of this week. Dylan has already asked if I could do his hair for him and of course, I said yes.

I think I'm going to brave my chances with the sudden rush and go heat up my supper. My stomach is talking to me.

It's been awhile since I have done one of these although my offline gratitude practice remains on point. In no particular order, here ar...
