It's the weekend, for those of you who celebrate such things. @ 07:13 am

Current Mood: awake

I don't much care if it's Saturday. Faeon gets off Wednesdays and Thursdays, Chad gets off Mondays, Patrick seems to work seven days a week, Lee still doesn't have a job, Tom's retired, and I very seldom get to see the girls. Today especially. It's Steve's birthday, and they're having a party. Even Justice's boyfriend Jordan is invited. But not me. That hurts. I thought we were making such good progress.

Canceled the exterminator appointment, but still don't know what to do about the ants. Clean everything with bleach and put out ant traps, but the swarms still happen and really gross me out. The things are living in my walls now and there are 10,000 cracks and holes in the walls through which they get into the house. At least didn't wake up to any new outbreaks, but there were a few scouts checking out my plants on the windowsill.

Went to the Iron Chef restaurant yesterday with Tom, Patrick, Chad, Chad's girlfriend Brandy, and the girls. Then went to Sallly's Beauty Supplies and bought the girls a fortune in hair and make-up products. Also brought them over to the house for a while, even though it isn't allowed. When I took the girls home, Elizabeth invited me in to hear the player piano. It was my mother's and wasn't working when I gave it to Elizabeth, but $200 later and it doesn't sound bad at all. All in all, we got through the evening with no drama, so I consider it a success.

I've started reading Snuff on my Kindle, Tom brought me a copy of the 'Guards, Guards' game, and Jinx sent me not only a copy of the movie Going Postal but also recordings of two of Terry Pratchett's interviews that weren't seen in the U.S. Looks like it should be a very Discworldy week.

Tom and I are going to a play tonight - The Love List. Otherwise, all I'm hoping for is that I can make a dent in my chores.

ya know. This sounds kinda nice. Relaxing. I spend a lot of my days doing disc profiles (, and those can sometimes be a little time consuming.
