Thursday report

I met most of my goals for today! I did apply for two jobs, although one I thought I was going to apply for changed the qualifications and I didn’t meet them. So I applied for another that I might not completely qualify for, but I met most of them, and it is a good paying job. I spent a good part of the day applying for that job.

I also changed my sheets and did two loads of laundry. Been relaxing since, haven’t cleaned the bathroom sink yet. But there is still time.

When I checked my mail I found out I am eligible for Unemployment benefits! I’ll be getting more than I expected, but it still won’t be as much as some people get. It’s based on my income from 2010. Still, I am very grateful to be getting it, it means I can pay rent AND bills while looking for work. So far I only really had money for rent for several months.

I only played my main FB game this morning, Lucky Train. Then later today I decided to play Gardens of Time till I ran out of energy (hidden object game). I played Lucky Train again. Not going to check in on other games today.

Been playing Rune Factory 3 on the DS. I should quit now and do something more constructive, like read a library book. Will in a few minutes.

I was surprised to hear Katie Couric was quitting CBS Evening News. I happened to watch her last broadcast. I didn’t always like what she had to say (she sounded anti-democrat & anti Obama at times) but I will miss watching a national news with a female anchor. She is going to be replaced by some man.

I really liked something she said on the news tonight, that a man who was supposed to be paralized for life, was able to stand on his own due to new medical technology. I wish Christopher Reeve was still alive to see this and experience it for himself.

I did start some of The Birth Of Venus By Sarah Durant today. Probably will read some more of that, and Rose for a Crown.


In the middle of chores

I want to start updating my blog more. And I want to start making goals again and sticking to them.  I was trying to stay away from my new FB game CSI Crime City but I’m letting myself go to it right now. I have been doing a bunch of cleaning and also read some of my library books.

I bought a new vacuum yesterday after work. It’s bright yellow and it has a nice strong motor. My floor is now very clean! Poor J had a bad time putting it together though. I hope it now stays in place. At first when I tried to vacuum it was falling apart.

I swept and mopped the kitchen floor, I started the dishes, wiped all the counters in the kitchen, and obviously vacuumed the living room. I also did two loads of laundry and put most of that away. Still need to finish the dishes and clean off the kitchen table. I want to completely wipe it off, meaning I will have to put the jigsaw puzzle away and then start it over. But I’d actually like to work on the puzzle every now and then, haven’t in a long time because the kitchen table is usually a mess.

Yesterday at work was pretty busy and I felt badly for several of my clients in one day, that doesnt’ happen very often (I usually get to give them good news). We have one more week and a day of work and then we’re done. It will be nice to have a short break. Then I will have to look for work which I never do like.

Books: I am reading too many again!! I need to stop checking so many out. Here’s a list of what I’m reading

  1. Killing Spree by Kevin O’Brien
  2. Birthmarked by Caragh O’Brien  (okay I just now realized I am reading two authors named O’Brien LOL)
  3. Master of the Game by Sydney Sheldon
  4. Gideon’s Sword by Preston & Child
  5. The Tower at the End of the World
  6. The Line

And there’s more I haven’t started yet but hope too. Got a Lisa Gardner thriller and a Carlene Thompson thriller lined up. Right now my two new favorite thriller authors are Kevin O’Brien and Carlene Thompson.

I’ve also been reading Dystopia books for young adults, I recently discovered they are very popular these days and have been trying several titles. I read Deliverance recently, and the Knife of Never Letting Go. Birthmarked is one of them, and so is The Line. I love dystopia books and I keep hoping I’ll find one I love as much as This Perfect Day and The Giver.

 Goals for today: I want to read more. Get all the cleaning done that I intended. Watch at least one episode of Six Feet Under. Make something nice for dinner, maybe tacos. Not waste time like I usually do. Okay more later.
