Happy Labor Day everyone, for those of you in the U.S. It seems kind of ironic saying Happy Labor Day, as I search for a job... and there are so many people out of work! I'm hoping to hear something back tomorrow on the interview from last week! That, folks, would just make my Labor Day this year, make it very memorable indeed! Some mornings I wake up with a weird nervousness in the pit of my stomach and it's there today, which I don't like in the least. I'm brewing coffee (adding caffeine to the mix probably won't help, but I do love my morning coffee)... so I'll just try to ignore it and maybe that feeling will go away. It's in stark contrast to the wonderful feeling I have when I lay down to read for an hour before bed each night and I can get absorbed in my book and become the story I'm reading. When I wake up, I guess reality hits me like bricks and it's not easy to take.
Anyway, today is Auto Auction driving and Sami again has cheerleading... yes, both on Labor Day. I'd prefer there was no cheerleading on Labor Day, especially since I have to pick her up a half hour into my Auto Auction driving... and normally I'd say "just skip it, because there isn't likely to be alot of kids there on Labor Day anyway", but she gets that uniform (and supplies) that we slaved away selling cookie dough for, so there is no way she's skipping.
Gustav is very close to making landfall in the New Orleans area this morning. I have only seen a snippet of the coverage and it looks like it's not too bad right now ~ lets hope the levee's hold. It's still a few hours away. Most people evacuated on the 3rd anniversary of Katrina, can't say I blame them, no matter how much I enjoy storms!
My weekend, so far, has been relaxing... I've been a homebody, with the exception of Friday, when I spent a few hours over at Becky's. It was nice to see her (them, including 18, 12 & 9). Saturday I spent cooking, which was fun. Becky had given me a few things from her garden (Zucchini mostly) and I made a delicious hamburger stew for Saturday's supper and a sauce for Sunday's (I'm still finishing up those tomatoes I cooked down from a few weeks ago). Sunday I read my book most of the day, which was nice, with a few naps in between. Becky loaned me The Season of the Witch (not to be confused with Season of the Witch, which is different - you have to have the "The" included). I'm about done with it already ~ it's really good! Beck, you'll have to bring me another book to read for the rest of the week!
