So today was get up and get some stuff done day. It was supposed to be clean the house day, but [ profile] cruz531 managed to tweak his shoulder so that's not happening. We put a pain patch on his neck and shoulder before we left the house and plugged a heating pad into the car for him to cook on while I drove.

We got out to San Pablo to deal with something MART related. And went to Costco on our way back...

Filled the gas tank on the car for $2.239 a gallon WOOT!

I was very good and resisted getting both Hellboy II: The Golden Army and KungFu Panda. But it was a close call.

We are home. I am bored OUT OF MY MIND and [ profile] cruz531 is now napping on more heat, having taken a painkiller cocktail.

I am feeling very selfish today and just want all my friends to be online so I can talk to them. I know it's a) not practical and b) not gonna happen.

See this? This is the face of me NOT CARING... want to be hanging out with folks and doing crafty stuff and NOT having a broken sweetie. grrr...

Oh and we have vermin in the house, at least one smallish gray field mouse has moved in and is driving us nuts. We have moved and repacked the foodstuffs it can get into and have put out "tip traps" baited with peanut butter (I HATE slap traps, but WILL use them if these don't work).

What else...? Oh yeah, our Netflix came yesterday - "Bridge to Terabithia" and I have heard tell from a couple of friends that they have not seen it so I may take it over there for an evening of movie fu. Just not Tuesday, since we are trying to set that evening aside for working on Con stuff. We were supposed to do that WEEKS ago, and yeah, it's gone pretty well so far... NOT.

I was gonna clean the house and bake today but that's a little difficult right now.

On the upside Bones Season 3 comes out in two days... GLEE.

So - Today, tomorrow and Monday I have taken off from work. Mainly due to Saturday being our 5th wedding anniversary.

The original plan was to have the big party we couldn't have 5 years ago, but with [ profile] cruz531 being out of work for over a year now kinda killed that. That's ok - I am not really a party person anyways. I may be social but I am not that into big crowds. So perhaps rethinking that is in order. I am ok with that. Besides, we have our 10th to plan for (evil grin).

The second plan was to try to go somewhere, but again with the no money. Travel is just too spendy.

So I cut down the time I am taking off (it was originally going to start just before Halloween and run past this weekend) and we are investing it into some time together, which is DAMN hard to get when I work roughly 50ish hours a week, and into ourselves and our home. We are going to spend as much time as we can trying to clean up and out the house and get stuff to our storage unit and get things sorted and repacked and and and...

Yeah, good luck with that, I know. But we are going to try.

This means that we, our lives, our home and our sanity have first dibs on our time from now through Monday. Other things may get alloted time within this window. A VERY limited amount of time will be given out that way - and in fact as of this morning the FULL amount of what I am willing to let infringe on our planned time has been taken. SO - if we have not already absolutely committed 100% to something? The answer is already a firm and polite "Thank you for thinking of us, but no."

Today and tomorrow is getting the house somewhat saner. Taking a load of empty glass to recycling and getting some money back (yay), taking a load or two (or more I hope) to storage, sorting through stuff, repacking stuff, possibly tossing stuff, possibly giving away stuff, and clearing off my sewing table so I can make something for [ profile] cruz531.

Saturday I hope to make it to the bead show for a short bit in the morning with friends and then spend the afternoon and evening with my sweetie. A movie may be in order, or a walk by the water, or just time at home. But together.

Sunday is very booked fulfilling a promise to [ profile] cadhla and more house stuff. I take promises very seriously and this one means a lot to me, and it could be fun and feed my soul in a way that it needs. So it gets some of my time on this special weekend. My time, my call, so there.

Monday will be trying to get the house back together before I go back to work.

I just hope that this time invested in us and the house is not wasted or eaten up by other stuff as it usually is. We slept in this morning (sleeping in being until 8:30) and have been noodling around and figuring out what the heck we are doing and planning and such so far and are about to scoot and get busy.

This means that unlike normal we will not be online most of the day though we will have our cell phones on. But please stop and think before you call us.

And now for a word from my snarky side - This means that unlike normal we will not be dropping everything we already have planned to do something for someone else. We will not be making everything outside ourselves more important. We are taking this time for us. If you don't like that idea, or the tone of this post, I have five words for you.... say so then go away. That way I can unfriend you. Cause we don't need you anymore.

OK - now to get the car unloaded from yesterday, then loaded, then moving! Wheee. Oh and to try to NOT overdo it and get a flare up. Yeah.. again with the "good luck with that"....
