Course today

I tried to find a way of conveying how much happier I am to be going on course today as opposed to going to work but the only analogy I could think of was both so violent and so vulgar that I decided not to sear my ma’s eyeballs with it.

My apartment is a sty because I’m never here when I’m not exhausted…. I detailed the laundry machines and cleaned the rug in Dr. Filk’s old bedroom last night. Also saw Katie back at the Augur Inn as she did laundry and tried to figure out what of her stuff is going with her over to Suzanne’s. Dax has moved out.

I have picked up Tom and Peggy’s housewarming present, with thanks and love. It is two little rosemary plants to replace the monster rosemary my mum planted by the front door of the Augur Inn. The rhodo is in full bloom in front of the old place… another thing I will miss. Next up at the Augur Inn. Windows, downstairs. Dan T. is also working flat out on the house which is great.

Keith was nowhere in evidence at the Augur Inn last night and much missed. He loaned me Jeff’s copy of Master and Commander so I will now start a Patrick O’Brian jag.

  1. I hope you will have some enthusiasm to make your new place like home, after all the work is done at the Augur Inn. When we were showing our previous house, I had a bottle of windex and a roll of paper towels under each sink in the house. Before leaving for work in the morning, I used it to leave everything in the house in sparkling condition. This way I didn’t have to worry when real estate agents brought prospective clients by during the day. However, after nearly a year of this, I had no enthusiam for our new home — we are doing our first Spring cleaning now; we will have been in the house for 9 years next month. Oh, we also have a basement full of unopened boxes from the move in June 1998! I have no idea what is in those boxes.

  2. oooh a treasure hunt!!! I can say one thing for sure….if it took that long to unpack there’s nothing in there, except possibly family photos, that you would miss….

  3. There are a considerable number of boxes labelled “Kitchen” — I can’t believe we haven’t missed it, maybe we replaced stuff?? Yeah, maybe some pictures, some books and maybe … some Jenny treasures (memories of days gone by)!
