where doest his go?

been unpacking the house all day.  got the office fairly organized and got lucky cats out of boxes.  anyway, still working quite a bit, ended up taking a day off last week cause I was worn out. Saw Diana Krall in concert last week, it was good. Turkey day is coming and we're having people come here because I have to work the day after. yippee!

just so you have an idea...

If you had told me a couple months ago I'd be working 60 hours one week and go into the office on a weekend, I would have laughed in your face.  but I still kinda like my job.

another month gone by

and I've read all of two books, it think.  Work is keeping me very busy, I've had to work one Saturday so far, although that turned out weird and I was only there about 45 minutes. 

House is a mess right now.  both living areas and the dining room/kitchen are under plastic while they paint.  and they seem to be taking their sweet, sweet time.  RTO's family is supposed to come for Thanksgiving, hopefully we'll have the house together by then. currently we're living in the guest and master bedrooms. probably would be just the master, but the TV doesn't quite work in there. and we've boarded the cats after coming home to little white paw prints on the floor the first day.

Had a few trick or treaters last night.  not as many as I expected so we had candy left over. yay!

I've almost made it a year tracking what I eat and I have nothing to show for it except losing and regaining about 10 pounds. and the holidays are coming. I have started walking the dog again. at five in the morning. but it's preferable to going to the office gym and working out there.

sooooo, hopefully it won't be another month until I finish another book.

work, work, and more work

which is the answer I gaave to "what expectations do you have for year end?"  just hit the end of a quarter so it's been busy.  and work has really cut into my reading time.  so the last George Elliot novel, Daniel Deronda, took me forever. anyway, really not supposed to talk about work for Big Payroll.  it keeps me busy, and awake.

We managed to sell the Texas house and move into the OK house, now we're waiting to unpack more stuff after the painters have done their thing, which will be at the end of the month. It's nice to have critters again anyway. and sleep in my own bed.

Has it really been a month?

I guess so.  I usually try to post when I finish a book, cause I come here to update my list, but I've skipped the last couple, I think.  Anyway, things are moving on both house fronts.  Don't want to get too optimistic, it could still all fall apart (it is Friday after all)  but if things go as planned we should be in our new house in about a month.

I start a new job Monday, was supposed to start this week, but when they did my background check it pulled a felony conviction for some other"maggie katzen".  She had a different middle initial and the arrest was before my name was even "katzen" but they had to wait to get it all sorted out. guess I will have to move my animal visiting to Saturday.

anyway, I'll be off now to see what book the trunk stash offers up.

just shoot me naow

house is still on the market. ugh. I'm starting to worry about not seeing it on a regular basis.  on the plus side, I'm one step closer to getting all my stuff together so I can maybe go back to work.  Not a whole lot happening. We visit the animals on Fridays. and I've been reading a lot.

stupid month

thought we'd sold the house twice now. but nooooooo.  anyhoo, originally thought we had to be out by July 6th, so when they cancelled we went ahead and put our stuff in storage. so we're currently living at my mom and dad's in Edmond. it's good that the house we're interested in is going to take forever to close, cause selling our house is becoming a problem.  We were going to ask for less and not fix things, but now it's looking like we'll have to make some repairs. which is really fun from over 200 miles away.

Anyhoo, Ella was taken to the Humane Society to find a new home. Everyone else is currently boarding in Norman.  They will let us go visit, which RTO plans on doing every other day. transporting them wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, they were relatively quiet.

finally getting some reading done, though, so there's that.
