CLEANING CLEANING CLEANING

AND THEN GOING TO BED

MUST WORK 10 HOURS TOMORROW, PICK UP EMMY AND TAKE HER TO MOM'S, AND THEN GO PICK UP [livejournal.com profile] sunsetsinthewes
NOTE TO SELF: DIRECTIONS MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA. PRINT THEM. ALSO, GET GAS.

GOD AT LEAST IT IS NOT -14 OR WHAT THE FUCK EVER. THE MIDWEST APPARENTLY DECIDED TO WARM UP (LOL 29 DEGREES F) JUST IN TIME FOR GEENA TO COME BACK

ALSO I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON BUT ONCE AGAIN I APPEAR TO BE IN THE MIDST OF A SEVERAL-WEEK-LONG OMFG I'M GOING TO DIE PIT. WE ARE JUST GOING TO HOPE THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN.

BECAUSE I WOULD BE REALLY SAD IF I DIED AND ALL OF MY GUYS DIED WITH ME

REALLY SAD

Sooooo driving in post-Christmas traffic in a huge city is fun, right? We went to Davenport to try to do Emmy's Build-A-Bear (which went pretty well, she chose a grey ballerina kitty and fell asleep in the car with it)...and it was packed, of course. Getting out of the parking lot proved interesting.

We got in the car, and then couldn't back up because there was this old lady in a car directly behind ours. I thought she might've been waiting for another car to pull out so she could have their spot, but we couldn't see anyone else moving. There were lots of people walking in the middle of the roads though, so it would've been hard to back out, plus a lot of cars going around this old lady's car and zipping by. We couldn't get out because she was RIGHT behind us, and we sat there waiting, until Dustin finally opened his door and was like, "Um, can you move your car? Please?"

So, this old lady looks toward us, sees both of us looking, kind of throws her hands up and shakes her head in exasperation, puts her car into reverse and looks behind her...then proceeds to stomp on the gas and back up directly into the front of the truck that was waiting behind her.

UM OKAY

So then she pulls forward, gets out of her car, and goes over to the window of the truck, where another lady (35ish) had been driving and was now looking at her like "......". I saw the old lady start talking, flap her hands in our direction, then go back toward her car. The one in the truck got out and looked at the front of hers, called something about it only hitting her bumper, and got back in her truck. No, there wasn't any damage, but how did we enjoy that "UM HAY IT'S THAT GUY'S FAULT I BACKED INTO YOUR TRUCK EVEN THOUGH I WAS LOOKING OVER MY SHOULDER, BECAUSE I WAS SITTING BEHIND THEIR CAR AND NOT MOVING AND HE RUSHED ME".

Happy fucking New Year to you too, lady.

AUGH so my car wouldn't start when I got out of work. Good thing Dustin put that travel power-pack dealy in my front passenger seat, so I could jump the battery myself instead of having to call someone or go back inside and ask for someone. (With the way I was parked, it would've been incredibly hard anyway.) He said he thinks there might be a loose fuel line or something, but since it cranks a little, then stops, and roars to life when I got the jumper cables on, I'm wondering if it's the battery. I just got a new one a little bit ago, so hopefully it's still under warranty. IDK IDK.

More overtime for the rest of the week. THERE HAD BETTER NOT BE SATURDAY. It's already just about Emmy's bedtime when we get home, and with trying to do NaNo and other shit, I just don't have time for anything. I barely have time to shower, and the dishes haven't been done in...well, I'm eating with a plastic fork. Maybe I can get my mom to come clean up for me ): At least I'm still trying to eat healthy--had Carnation Instant Bitch Breakfast this morning, since I couldn't find my oatmeal bowl (it slid under the front seat in the car, have it now), a thing of Soup To Go or whatever it's called for lunch, and yoghurt for a snack. Steamed broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, and a bit of canned white meat chicken for dinner. I was all pissed off about the car and almost stopped for cheeseburgers on the way home, but remembered I only had a little bit of veggies left, and they were gonna go bad. Mmm, basil. Now I need more cauli. And broccoli and carrots. Will try to stop at the store on the way home tomorrow...or I'll just make brown rice in my cooker and like...I don't know, mash up some beans. Beans are pretty good, yeah? I tore some more recipes out of a magazine, mostly for soup. SOUP IS GOOD FOOD.

Emmy is watching Fern Gully and I've got to turn it off and get her into jammies. Maybe today will be a backwards NaNo day, where I go over what I've done so far and edit it, before adding more. There's no way I could post it now--it's so rough and fast and...bleh. Suppose I should just pound out the story first, then go back and edit, but it's bugging me. I kept remembering shit today at work that I need to go back and add in, or fix.

If I can get going and finish the word count for today, I'll drudge up some music. I'm thinking of starting to do a Song Of The Day sort of deal. (And I haven't forgotten about doing the 50 Top Artists thing either, that just takes more time because it requires more thought, explaining why I love my favourite bands and which songs I think are the best, versus just popping out one song link.) OKAY NOW TO GET EMMY SQUARED AWAY AND OPEN UP WORD.
