Sometimes I think my days off are less restful than the days I work. This morning I woke up at about 7:30 and watched the last 40 minutes of The Butler. I cried when I first watched a few years ago because it had such a positive ending with Obama getting elected. This time I cried because I am wondering what the hell happened. Seriously? What has happened? Moving forward in 2008, a black president! And now. Yeah. And now.
Today was take shit to the recycling depot day. Piles of crap that doesn’t get picked up in our regular pickup. Glass. Styrofoam. Batteries. Old computer equipment. I hate going. It’s always so busy and you are lucky if you even find a spot to park and then you have to wander around trying to find the proper place to put it. From there I went to get Norbert, The Ungrateful Bastard, his special cat food. It was funny when I brought it home because he knew what it was and got all excited. He just woke up from his nap in his teepee. He takes his afternoon nap in there. He’s all groggy and disoriented now.
Also went to the dollar store, replaced the propane tank for the barbecue and got groceries. Then I came home and cleaned for about 2 hours. How does a part of the house we don’t even go to get so gross? I’m not kidding. It took two hours because stuff just seems to collect there. Anyway, it’s clean and now I have some kombucha brewing. The clothes I hung on the line outside yesterday are still there and I should go and get them and fold them and put them away but I’m too tired now.
I’m going to bed early tonight.
