Sitting here at home listening to the wind howl, the rain beating the heck out of the house and watching the lights occasionally flicker and just waiting for the power to finally go out. I’m bored out of my mind. Wishing that I’d stayed with her instead of coming home where no one cares whether I’m actually here or not. The kids are occupied with their own stuff these days, which is fine by me, mostly. I really don’t like feeling so insignificant. I should have just stayed there instead, seriously. At least I’d have someone to talk to, if nothing else. Besides the fact that I miss her so much I feel like I’m going to go insane.
My internet connection is iffy with the flickering electric so there’s no guarantee. It’s too dark out to see if the creek is finally flooding over the banks, which is always fun to watch.
Mixed up a mega batch of cookie dough because I’ve been wanting cookies, but after baking four dozen and tasting two, I was done with that! So I packed up the rest in a container and shoved it into the refrigerator for another day. Wonder how long it’ll keep?
Tried logging in for job training tonight like I was supposed to but couldn’t hold a solid connection with the server, so I guess I’ll find out later in the week what impact that has on the at-home job I waited all month to start. I’m hoping worst scenario is that I’ll just have to wait to get assigned to a different project and not that I lose the job altogether. It’s not like I have much control over the weather!
Imagine if I did? That could be some fun times! LOL
Oh, Hurricane Sandy, the mess you’re making out there! If it weren’t for you, I’d probably just get right back in my car and drive back to her …
Stay safe out there, fellow east-coasters getting beat up by Sandy!
