On the banks of Boredom Creek

Day two, post-job, pre-job, however you want to look at it. I'm still no closer to getting a start date at the base and even though I know this is the procedure, not knowing is still a little unsettling. I'm ready to get to work! I told Larry last night that I hated this housewife crap and I DO.  He laughed and told me it's because I've never had to do it and he's right.  I know I'd never be able to do this long-term.

I've been sick with a cold so these days at home have been a blessing.  I've been able to rest and get better.  I cleaned blinds and washed curtains today and I dusted all my Pooh beanies who live on a shelf in our guest room.  I spent the better part of two years (1999 and 2000) collecting these things and as you can see, I have a few.  :)  I bought every single one The Disney Store at the Macon Mall had, usually the day they came out.  I was crazy.  This was back when I was really bad about money and bought stuff I didn't need.  I actually have more money now than I did then and I'm so much smarter now!!  Less is more!!  But Pooh and his friends are kinda cute, ain't they?  And look at Christopher Robin peeking up to say hey!

I was sick over the weekend so I stayed home, so that means I've been at home FOUR days!  Straight.  Ugh.  I have seen every single movie from the Love Comes Softly series twice and I've seen two of them three times.  I've watched endless episodes of The Waltons and Little House On The Prairie and OMG, I even watched a Little House movie where John-Boy played Charles Ingalls.  Oh, how THAT messed with my mind and even caused a nightmare.  Some things are just best left alone.  I've played a gazillion games of Words With Friends on Facebook and my house is spotless.  I gotta get out of here.  Sunday, I did venture out for a trip to the bookstore and ended up having to buy a new battery for my car.  All I wanted was a book and a cup of Joe Muggs!  Ugh.

I feel a road trip coming on!!
