Thirteen is being helpful and is only barely getting on my nerves.
I know, right?? None of you saw THAT coming, did you? Me either! I don't know if she changed medications or has just finally settled into the job and relaxed a bit or if I've finally gotten used to her, but I've noticed that the last few weeks (I don't know how long it's been - I have no concept of time) she really doesn't seem to bother me. She asks questions still, but not stupid questions and she doesn't babble about Robert Pattinson or fucking Twilight, so there's a huge improvement right there. Plus, you can ask her to do anything and she'll just do it. It's awesome! She doesn't question it or complain, she just does it. It's so cool! We're working on a giant, icky project our boss gave us and she whined a bit about how stupid it is (and she's not wrong!), but she buckled down and did it and didn't bug me once. I'm gonna' give her a sticker tomorrow if she keeps up the SUPER attitude!
So, yeah, that's pretty noteworthy, right? Hmm, what else is going on? Not much. Life in 2010 is pretty much like 2009. I still have my Christmas tree up, which really shouldn't surprise anyone. Um, what else? I've been watching "The Wire" and it's good, but I'm not blown away. Uhhhh, what else...
Oh , here's some more of those things to be happy about from that calendar:
- Picnics around the fireplace
- Using chopsticks
- Chocolate fondue
- Commonsense folk sayings
- Sea monkeys
- Pockets of tranquility (which I originally read as "tranquilizers" - I like mine better.)
- A terrific hair day
- Lyrics sung incorrectly
- A glassed-in sun porch (which I think some people call a "Florida Room" - how cute is *that*?)
- Short naps
What's going on with you? Did you have a good New Year's Eve? Has your 2010 been good so far?
Happy No Whining Wednesday!
