I made Carrot Pancakes for breakfast, then called Mom. Mom was on her way to the shower from working on the garden. She begins her new job at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry this week, so I won't be calling her on Sundays for a while. She's mostly been catching up on chores after Keefe's visit and Dad being home. I told her about my long week, including Rose's swearing in. I'm proud of her...but I'll admit, I'm a little jealous, too. She's a lawyer. I'm a cashier at a grocery store who hates what she's doing. I wish I could find something like that I would want to do, too, something where people would respect me. And it would have been nice if Dad and Rose gave me a little bit more notice about the swearing in. I hated showing up there in my Acme uniform, with no card or anything for Rose (even if Rose said she didn't really need anything).
After I let Mom go, I did the dishes, then made the bed. I don't often make the bed. In fact, I can't remember the last time I made the bed. Who's gonna see it? I live alone. When sheets start going missing or getting kicked out from under me, it's time to make the bed.
When I finished that, I went on the computer to get some things organized. First of all, depending on what my finances are like, I want to take a few more classes later this summer and fall. There's another communications course on how to deal with difficult people, and several on writing. I want to write...but I'm too shy to sell it, and I don't know how to distinguish myself from the crowd, or what else I can do with my skills besides writing.
I had a quick lunch while listening to the Songs From the Year Of records I bought a few weeks ago. They're just collections of an orchestra playing medleys of songs from a certain year. I did 1917, 1922, 1923, and 1924 today. I ran out of time for 1925 - I'll have to do that one another Sunday.
Work was very busy all afternoon and evening. It showered a little on my way to work, which didn't help. It was so busy, I had to beg a manager to come in and finish my line when I was done. I just got out under the wire.
