Things!

Time for another edition of things in my world!

Friday: Made the (inevitable) decision to stay with my current job. The raise I'm getting isn't much, but it will cover the added expense of commuting and give me a tiny bit extra each month. And we're going to be allowed to telework from home three days a week, which means only having to drive to another state for work twice a week. I think I can handle that (good thing I ADORE audiobooks). It'll mean I get to be around my kitties more, too, so that's a bonus.

Yesterday: Went on a geocaching trip to the Eastern MD shore with a LEGO friend. Was fun, but I still don't think it's the hobby for me. I prefer my historical markers because (for the most part) people WANT you to see the markers. Geocaches are hidden and complicated on purpose. I don't need that. But I did manage to spot some markers along the way and we ended the day with a few monuments/memorials (one of which I think is going to yeild me about 25 snarfs because of a marker series within the memorial--score!). On the whole, it was a lot of fun. I wasn't prepared for the fact that we did not stop for lunch or dinner. I left the house at 8am and got home at 9am HUNGRY. I did pack some snacks, but it's not the same as a proper meal. Also, anyone who knows me IRL knows I am obsessed with putting on sunblock. I didn't do so yesterday, because I just had too many moving pieces and was trying to figure out his GPS device. So now I have a sunburn on my face that is embarrassing. People say it's not that noticeable; just looks like I'm blushing. But I feel shame. Also, I don't want skin cancer. Bad tg. Also, at one point in the car, I looked down and saw what I thought was a little spider running across my hand. It was not a spider. It was a tick. I tried to smash it but only succeeded in dropping it on the floor of the car. After that, I was pretty sure it had crawled back onto me and was biting me and giving me Lime disease or something. So that was my freaking out mental state for the last 3 hours of the trip. At one point, I reached up to move my hair and my finger brushed something on my neck and I pulled it away and I am 90% sure it was the tick again, but he didn't bite me that time either. When I came home I did the most thorough tick check ever and took a super long shower. Then I checked all over a second time, just in case. I do not think a hobby that puts me in danger of skin cancer and lime disease is for me, honestly. Also, I had to climb out onto a spit (?) across about 50 feet of nothing but unstable, shifting rocks. Yeah. This is not my hobby. Which kind of sucks as I'm going geocaching again this upcoming Sunday. But we're going to a military fort, so there will be a lot of snarfing too. Yay!

Today: Went to the gynecologist; apparently the bump I have is not life-threatening. Another Yay! Finally finishing up my taxes tonight as well.

I really need to adult better. I'm doing better than I have been in a while, but I'm not where I'd like to be yet.

Speaking of not being where I want to be yet, I still haven't seen season 2 of the Get Down! I started watching the first episode and kept getting pulled away. ARGH! I love those characters. Need more now!

My week looks like this: finish taxes, work, processing photos from Sunday's trip, writing SPN fic about Dean & Sam caught in the rain at a bus stop, watch the start of the Stanley Cup playoffs, try to read as much of the second Game of Thrones book as possible because I've got a book discussion about it next week, register ALL THE BOOKS for an upcoming book festival (I've got 2 boxes and 4 bags packed with books still to get through).

Let's go Caps!
