Blogger is working today!
The NHL Playoffs have started. It's Hockey Season in California! I get to see hockey almost every night. What a relief it's been to see my favourite game. Even if all I get to see is the Devils and Bruins play. I can hope at least Boston will whoop the pants off of New Jersey. I have a very complicated set of "Hockey Rules" that cover what teams I want to win. Most important is any team that beat the Leafs in any playoffs since 1999 are teams that must lose now. So New Jersey of course is one of those teams. Washington, Ottawa and Boston can win. Since the Leafs are playing the Flyers, of course the Flyers must lose. It's all rather complicated and can change at any given point depending on who's winning.
How's the job going? Okay. Still going to the Management Training classes in Ukiah. It's a pain to get down there because I have to ask my father to take me. Not fun, since he's not big on driving down there. Only a few more weeks. I hope I can get some good money back from my taxes. Then my plan to become a driver can start. First thing is getting my eyes examined and a new prescription written. Then my license, then a car. I can't wait to drive again. Such freedom.
Home is okay. A little more furniture. Minka is pregnant I believe. She is acting like a pregnant woman, sleeping all the time and very lethargic. She got out one day while she was in heat and was gone for two+ days. Someone, one of Brice's nasty little friends opened the window in the living room. She got out. That really, truly pissed me off. I only hope she has one kitten. We'll keep the baby and get them both fixed. I know I'll be making more money in the summer because of overtime. I feel like my own daughter is pregnant.
Love life update. Well, this is as complicated as ever. No, I take that back, it's not complicated at all. I made a decision. Some of you know that I've had an infatuation for a certain man. I won't mention who because I don't know who might read this. Suffice to say that the situation was impossible. I had decided to move on and find someone who I really like and who likes me in return instead of being stupid. Well I found someone. I don't know what incredible luck I have or maybe why God decided to smile on me but I met someone who is such an anomaly here in Willits. He's handsome, educated, traveled, likes art, plays the piano, paints. He's kind, gentle. If I were making a list of everything I'd like in a man, he'd be the exact match of it. Amazing. Oh, yea, he's a pilot. I still shake my head that I met someone like him. Especially here. I thought the best I could hope for was maybe a cowboy who might like art or something. Right now we've seen each other twice and he's met Brice. I'll keep you updated. :)
The weather here isn't quite as warm as I could hope for but everyone says I will relish these cold days when summer decides to turn itself on, completely. It's rainy, overcast and cold right now. Brice and I both got sick again and I believe that we don't quite ever get over it because it's always so damp here. Not in the house. I try to keep it toasty inside. I figure that we feel miserable enough being sick. Being sick and cold is too much to ask of us. My new friend - who I will just call "The Pilot" for privacy sake - came over yesterday and it was way too warm inside for him. Poor thing. I also think that working where I do, I like it warmer now. It's so warm there behind the counter that you get used to higher temperatures.
So that's about it for now. *hugs hugs* all around!
