I hate the mornings I wake up exhausted.
We did move my columnar apple trees from MiL's house and plant them in a line in the front yard last night (well 3 out of 4 anyway; we were getting peered at by lightning, so there's still one in its half barrel sitting on the protected side of the house where we abandoned it). Honestly, planting a few tiny trees is not a good reason for me to be completely wiped out after a full night's sleep.
I'm more inclined to blame 2-3 straight days of re-evaluating and re-plotting a story, and general emotional Nope. And yeah, I am actually still deeply upset by some of my long-time deeply loved artists up and ending their lives one by one. Music's important to me--their music's important to me, but y'all that already know me, know me. I know you're not surprised. I know a lot of you feel the same, too.
Doom!Twin01 is having a gaming convo with W somewhere else in the house, the dining room, probably. Just to add to the fun, the kid talked to a recruiter on the phone yesterday and now we have to take her over to Tinton Falls today to talk to the Marines.
Emailed the job I really want earlier this week, 'cause I hadn't heard anything. The nice HR guy apologized, said they hadn't made it thru all their applicants yet, and he was hoping to be able get back to everyone at the end of this week one way or another? Maybe? He hopes? So I'm antsy about that, too (They interview, hire, and train in groups, and I've been on the other side of that proceedure. If they're actually doing the 6-part interview process I experienced with everyone? Yeah, he's having some very long days right now.)
Recruiter just called to confirm. D!T01 took the oppertunity to get a hookup for her twin. So now they're both going.
They're really going outta their way to try me now.
So I reached into the bedside table, and pulled a stone out of the bag. I got back DONO NTOASO - the double praise drum. I gave it a squeeze. Took a deep breath. I'm going to finish my tea and carry the fuck on, and keep trying to give a hand up (or at the very least try not to wound) anyone I meet along the way. Godsdamn I'm fuckin' tired. Could be worse, tho. I've definitely been worse.
