This weather has made me want to stay home from work, snuggle in, and not do anything. But playing hookie this time of the year in our office is OUT of the question. No vacation/time off now through September. And at least we have Memorial Day off.
Speaking of that weekend, keeping my fingers crossed, the owners of the house-of-my-dreams will be up and talking business with Joe and I. Per his mother’s request, I am no longer allowed to discuss this matter or post pictures online because according to her, it will screw things up. In what ways I do not know, but, for now, I will honor her request. She is a creature of control and that’s fine right now, but this is not going to continue in the future. This may have been an unspoken dream of hers, but that’s exactly my point. It’s her dream and unfortunately it’s not happening to her, but to me. So, future mother-in-law, please step away. (She doesn’t know how to turn a computer on and will never read this.)
It’s difficult not to vent, this is a huge step in my life. In our lives if Joe and I do it together. I have enough to worry/think about let alone worry whether or not I can even speak about it with friends. I guess her fear is that someone will come and outbid us. But, I’m pretty sure if the owners were concerned about money, they would have sold the house fifteen years ago when the woman moved out. If it’s meant to be, it will be meant to be. In the mean time, I continue to think positive thoughts and plan for the perfect outfit to meet this couple in. Such a typical girl.
With this weather, I haven’t been out collecting cans, but tomorrow night is recycle night in Troy and I plan on hitting the streets. I might also venture up to Saratoga to collect some promised loot and cash it in for money! I’ve been thinking about the trip, haven’t really discussed it with Joe, but would still like to drive if possible. I would not only love to stop in Washington D.C. again, but crash with my big sister in Virginia, visit Cumberland Island (finally!), and New Orleans prior to getting into Houston. I could do that all in a week, but thinking I would have to leave prior to Christmas to be in Houston for New Years (without rushing down). I’ll have to run it by friends and family and also do a little research on the weather to ensure that I’ll be comfortable camping out. Seems premature but I’d like to be prepared to fly if need be.
With the colder weather, I’ve been wishing my hair to be longer. It’s been about a year and a half now since I’ve been able to put it back in a pony. I had a dream the other night, can’t disclose details, but I had long hair; which probably got me on the bandwagon to grow it out. If only these things would happen over night. Below is a combination of a rubber band and about sixteen bobbies to get the effect, ha ha.
Had a great lunch with my undergraduate professor/advisor, she is such an inspirational person. She gave me great advice for the minor crisis occurring in my life at this moment, which was just what I needed to hear. She’s always encouraging of my outrageous ideas and has suggestions on how to make them a reality. Can’t wait to have her on the Albany campus more often so that our meetings aren’t as wide spread.
Until next time when I have something significant to post about, good evening!
