The only reason why I am thinking this is because I can't figure out something clever to name this blog entry. I just am not being creative right now! Oh, and yes, I have a dictionary somewhere in the mess of this room. I'm just not going to try and find it.
So today has been a good day: a chat with the husband, a dog park visit (it was raining and I got really wet), a trip to the 'rents house, mailing Jesse's package, moving more stuff to post, and going out with a friend from Georgia. Oh how the day went by so fast. I'm not complaining.
I don't know what it is, but the beginning of a new month can almost be intimidating while your husband is gone. It seems like so many days, so much time, until it is over and a new month is starting. Then relief. It feels better to have the month over with, than it does to start a new one. Now this probably won't be the same once Jesse is home on leave (I'll be ridiculously super psyched instead), but until it gets closer to that point of time I think this is how it's going to be.
One interesting story to tell from the days events is what I (or I should say we, Kristen and Greyer were with me) came home to in front of my house.....Which was giant, fat, man eating (ok, maybe I'm exaggerating) RACCOONS! They are huge. I swear, someone feeds them in this neighborhood. This is sighting number two. I actually have a hunch on this one. These raccoons are small little creatures (well a little larger than a cat) and about as heavy as my dog (exaggerating again). They seemed decently scared of people which I think is good, and when I took my dog out to go to the bathroom and get today's mail they seem genuinely scared of him too. I breathe a sigh of relief on this fact just because there have been many cases of raccoons attacking people and their dogs (Ankle biters. I love all dogs but I'm just saying). Especially in this area (AKA Seattle). Not to mention they could have rabies and the number one "fun" thing for raccoons to do is go through your trash. Amazing little creatures. I do have to say that one of them looked like they had a "hand" that was hurt, he wasn't using it at all. As much as I want to hate these little creatures, his little arm was hurt! Poor guy :(
So, enough of that. I hope everyone has a good weekend, whether it is long or short. Tomorrow the 'rents are coming by to help me out (and fix Jesse's dresser!). I'm sure I'll have a story to tell tomorrow.
