so, my plan was to finish Rock Chick Rescue, get packed up & get to the Parthenon before i headed out of nashville.
i finished RCR, got packed up (after a beautifully relaxing shower), and headed out. but it was rainy & i was an hour later than i'd planned, and altho i LOVE the Parthenon, i wanted to get home before dark for once!
the drive home was fairly normal.
- cute, tattooed boy at gas station. check!
- cute, tattooed boys at rest area. check check!
- cute, possibly tattooed boy hanging out of a passing truck window after honking, giving me a thumbs up. check?
yeah, that happened. i am still trying to figure out what that was about!
but whatever, it was funny! :D
oh yes, and there were coffee drive thru runs to both panera & starbucks... LOL
there was good music.
i sang along & car danced.
there was construction.
that was a little irritating.
but there was this cool trucker who was blocking ppl from zooming around the line of cars at one point. i know if you're the person behind that truck, it's annoying, but the speed limit is 55 or 45 to help protect those men & women who are working, and unfortunately, when ppl speed through the "open" lane just to get to the end & expect ppl to let them merge... well, they tick me off. it's different if both lanes are being engaged at the same time - then the ppl who don't let in the cars are jerks. every other car, ppl!
MOOOOVING on... ; )
there were okay snacks.
oh, except a really stellar stick of colby jack cheese.
i rolled into the QC around 8, i think. i stopped at mom's before going home.
oh, and i stopped at steak & shake for a bacon cheeseburger & some cottage cheese cuz i hadn't eaten dinner & was HUNGRY1 heh.
and i got my mail on the way to the house - beautiful gifties awaited me:
i won a couple contests on FB recently - signed Freefall & swag from Tess Oliver & a signed copy of Therapy. yay! and the books that UPS couldn't deliver on saturday because of the rain were waiting in the package box as well. woot!! :D
sadly, when i walked into my house, my good mood took a nose dive.
my house smells like cat pee. :(
G R O S S!
i think there might be something really wrong w/ Angel. :( she pooped & peed all over the dang place. phil was over to feed & water & clean her litter, and he said he was here at 3 & it didn't smell. so... i've no idea, but it's gross. i ended up tossing the sheet that was on the guest bed, it was so bad. and i've been febreezing the shit out of the house as i clean what i find, but i can still smell it. UGH! i cleaned angel, as well, but i know i didn't get it all...
and now i am up (it's 3AM) & i've been reading, but my main focus has been laundry. i have two comforters to wash...
so, tomorrow phil is going to help me take angel to the vet. i don't have a cat carrier & i know i can't take her by myself. i'm worried that there's something really wrong that i won't be able to afford to fix. i mean, i know she's 11, but other than this peeing/pooping in inappropriate places, she seems fine... and she's going in her litter, too, so idk why she's going ELSEWHERE.
it makes NO sense to me! :(
so, there you have it. my suck & sweet for my return home.
i hope y'all are having a good start to YOUR weeks!!
