|post office fail
I was good! I paid attention to things people might want and went shopping online last month. Christmas shopping done!
Nothing is arriving. Apparently, the post office/Fed ex/UPS can't find my house and is returning *everything* as undeliverable. On the phone all day to find out reordering will not get anything here in time. Not only is mail slower, but my stuff is on a round trip.
Well, not everything. Bills and junk mail still magically find their way to the SAME ADDRESS. Oddly enough, all the misc. crap I ordered in around October arrived with no hitches. SAME ADDRESS.
New plan: everyone gets gift certificates. Sorry =( I hate the holidays. Current Mood: aggravated

|year 38, day 1: musings
So, I've made it to 38. What the hell am I doing?
Yesterday: Paisley (aka pdog) was barred from the bedroom because she's obnoxious on the bed. Went to Target to buy more clothes hangers and misc. stuff. Woke up at 6am this morning because last week it was 7am (circadian rhythm hasn't reset). Works out ok since I have to be at work 30 min earlier now.
Basics: Mom got re-married over the weekend. Car is reliable, but I'm going to trade it in for a 4x4 pickup eventually. 2 cats and 1 dog. Front and back yards of the house are torn up due to my landscaping. House is a bit messy and empty. I've lost 20 lbs since August. Generally healthy and getting healthier. Work is going very well - 'exceeding expecations' and it's not stressful. Financially stable. Single, lonely and mourning the loss of a good thing. House is worth half what I paid for it 3 years ago.
Long term, going with the flow. House needs repairs and maintenance. Job has potential, but pay is low. Time may solve that problem. I want to travel. Go sailing and/or get a sailboat. Go flying and possibly get a pilot's license. Might fix up and rent out the house and move someday.
Goals: Going to learn snowboarding this winter with my season pass. Dropping my BMI to a healthy level. Cleaning the garage. Planting lawn in the backyard. Finally installing moulding in the living room. Repairing/replacing the gutters and caulking external cracks.
2013 (40): Living in Vallejo. Possibly have taught pdog to walk on a leash.
2018 (45): House no longer underwater.
2023 (50): Buy first flying car.
2028 (55): ?
2034 (61): ?
2048 (75): ?
2049 (76): Consider retirement
2058 (85): Move to moon.
2068 (95): yelling "you kids git off my lawn!" on moon.
2092 (120): consiousness transferred into data-stream.
2093 (121-200): smart-mouthed ship computer constantly giving crew shit.
38 and still not acting my age. Grey in the goate and in the sideburns though.
Plans for today:
Dinner with Amber

|Cleaning the garage
Something I haven't done since I moved in really. Actually, it's a general sorting of stuff from cardboard boxes in to more permanent bins. Found some really cool stuff! This does not bode well for my internal packrat...
Paisley ( aka, teh moose dog) hasn't been feeling well for a few days. She whines when she jumps up on the bed. She's also got a lot less energy and isn't barking. Poor moosey. It's looking like a trip to the vet is in the near future. Current Mood: productive

I recently discovered a local honey farm in American Canyon! http://www.marshallshoney.com/
I stopped by and picked up a gallon for $88. Poured it into a container while I waited. Talk about fresh. I got the blackberry stuff, which is actually from bees further north (and tastes amazing). the local stuff collected from the vallejo area has a hint of fennel, which I'm not big on.
Time to dig out the 'ol brewgearz (And Jenny's famous apple-mead recipe) and git to the mead making! Current Mood: accomplished

|A quote I ran across
"When someone you love dies, and you're not expecting it, you don't lose [them] all at once; you lose [them] in pieces over a long period of time- the way the mail stops coming, and [their] scent fades from the pillows and even from the clothes in [their] closet and drawers. Gradually, you accumulate the parts of [them] that are gone. Just when the day comes- when there's a particular missing part that overwhelms you with the feeling that [they're] gone- forever- there comes another day, and another specifically missing part."
