I think that my “new” job is finally getting to me. It comes and goes … some days it’s good, but some days I just want to pull my hair out! I think part of my stress is because I have only seen my husband one whole week in the last three months. Comes with the territory, I guess. I’ve been doing rather well, considering the amount of time he’s been gone. Ah well, we’ve got a vacation planned in late September that we both have to look forward to … can’t wait!

Right now I am sitting at my desk, trying not to notice the huge stack of groceries sitting on my counter, waiting desperately to be put away. My usual routine for putting away groceries is to set them all on the floor when I come home from the store, then let the cats jump around the plastic bags until I put away all the cold and frozen stuff. Next, I take out all the non-perishable items and set them on the counter, throw the plastic bags away so the cats don’t suffocate themselves to death, and then I tend to more important tasks in my house … such as, re-watching DS9 episodes on DVD, reading my new HP book, and sitting down to play my new favorite number-logic game I discovered in the newspaper – sudoku. (For those of you who can decipher my acronyms, you will realize how much of a geek I truly am … but don’t forget the fact that you actually know what I’m talking about!) I really wish Ace would come home soon … DS9 just isn’t the same without him! (Not to mention that he has two seasons of STV to catch up on when he gets home so we can finish off the series! Ah, yes, I am a geek.)
