Out of nowhere, laying in bed last night:

Chuck: “So, I’ll make a deal with you.”

Me: “Ok?”

Chuck: “Once we get to $XYZ in our checking account, we can get a kitten.”

Me: *Surprised silence* “You really think a kitten is going to put that much of a dent in our finances?”

Chuck: “Well no, but it gives us some sort of goal and timeline for it.”

I’m not sure how a kitten is connected to that much money, but it’s a start! Chuck has been decidedly anti-cat overall, but I knew all those cute pictures of kittens on his beloved Reddit would eventually break him down and melt that macho little heart 😉


Productive Little Monday

Every now and again I get Monday off from both the Chamber job and the pharmacy job, which allows me to catch up on things/recover from whatever craziness has been going on. I cleaned the house, did laundry, gave the cat a bath, got some administrative crap off my checklist, and even had a healthy breakfast AND lunch (I usually end up missing one of them.)

I wanted to work out too, but the vacuuming, cat-bathing, and bed-making was so physical that now I’m pooped and just don’t feel like it (lame, I know.) I did walk to the mailbox, which is a good 10 minutes round-trip. That counts, right? I might have exaggerated the 10 minutes. But it’s not like it’s at the foot of my driveway 🙂

I still need to make a grocery run, but I’m trying to find excuses out of that too. For instance, one of my car tires is half-flat. I shouldn’t drive anywhere unless absolutely necessary, yeah? Alas, there really isn’t much in the house for dinner, and I committed to making dessert for dinner with friends tomorrow night. Oy. All I really want to do is sprawl out on my couch and read my book.

In other news, today is Chuck’s first day with his new unit. I hope we get more info on what to expect in the next few months soon!!

… Okay okay!! Going to the grocery store now… 

Chuck calls me Holly Golightly sometimes. I finally saw the film and was a little insulted.

I’m going to guess it’s because she’s obsessed with her cat (I’ll take that.)

And maybe because I was an Ice Queen when it came to love. WAS. Past tense 🙂 I guess there’s no denying that one, but I am cured now!

When I grow up and have my own boutique cupcake shop, this will hang in large poster form on the wall, instead of a greeting card cutout on my fridge 🙂
