Trying to write an essay, and just trying to get through my intro has me thinking, ‘Am I even speaking English?! WHAT DOES THIS SAY?!?’ I’m forgetting how to word here. I has the dumb.
For being as analytical as I am (ask me sometime about the mention of rabbits in a Rob Zombie song,) I hate analysis essays, and I especially hate that I write really good ones, even though by the end I’m pretty sure I’m making about as much sense as an argument developed by my cat walking repeatedly across my keyboard. Seriously, I hate it. Ugh.
I feel like I’ve done literally nothing today, but I did stuff. Unloaded the dishwasher, folded laundry, did Spanish assignments, read my English assignments and watched the corresponding lectures, took Nathan to karate.. I did stuff! I have two essays pending that I’m not interested in doing at alllll, but I’m being a grownup or some shit and starting the more urgent one. It’s not due until Sunday, and I can probably knock it out tomorrow. The harder essay for government isn’t due until the 11th, so I have some time.
Oh yeah, the inlaws came by this weekend for Thomas’s bday and brought a pumpkin pie. (Don’t ask, I don’t know… and it was gluten-free.) But, even being GF, it was not a bad pie! GF crusts are getting better, or at least better than they were 10 years ago. MIL was introduced to our kittens, who were brought outside in a basket for her, and she has picked the little grey boy. She really wants a long-hair, so we’ll see how everyone develops.
Speaking of the kittens, I tried giving them solid-ish food again, and one of them ate! The littlest girl, Chalupa, who is a fierce little girl, even being quite a bit smaller than her siblings. She is the loudest, the bravest, and now the first to eat. I’m pretty happy with it! Hopefully the rest will catch on… poor mama is eating constantly and still skinny from feeding them. We gave her some couch time today. It’s not going to be too long before the little monsters are going to be everywhere. 😳 They’re really close to climbing out of the pack n play already. No idea what I’m going to do with them other than let them run wild in the room…
Thomas takes his first CPA exam tomorrow! He was given today and tomorrow off for it, and won’t know how he did for a few weeks. He’s been working his butt off, though, so I’m sure he’ll be fine. He’s a smart cookie.
This weekend will be game night for the first time in almost 2 months, yay! I’m so ready for that. We haven’t told Nathan yet… he’s gonna lose his tiny mind when he realizes he’s going to see Merboy again!
