more of the same

I talked to Daniel early last week and he was supposed to come by the house yesterday to fix my closet and paint my wall spots away while I was in Cola. Then he texted me saying he "went out of town" and wouldn't be able to come by. Said he'd be available all this week; was there a day that was good for me? By this point, I'm so sick of not being able to move into my room that I asked if I could just do it myself. I did ask if he could knock a little off next months' rent - it is his house after all, his responsibility, and I'll have to pay for the supplies. But I could have it all done in a few hours... and I'm tired of waiting. *pout* I responded early yesterday afternoon and haven't heard back yet.

I just want to be HOME, y'know? I don't have a lot of free time, I want to be available to get to know my roommates, and I want to be comfortable letting them in my room. But I get this itch - when I can't rest in my own room, it's hard for me to rest anywhere else. And it's been in such limbo for so long that it's really getting to me. I think I just need completion. I'm planning on being here a while; I want to feel like I really AM here... if that makes any sense.

The regular work week starts today. I'm anxious to see what it will be like in comparison to the overload of the weekend shifts.

Classes also start today. Monday/Wednesday night for the one class and Thursday night for the other. Except I haven't been able to get to campus since I've been back and I need to switch my schedule (to the above; what I need it to be to work around my work schedule) and no one was able to tell me what my required texts were, so I still don't have my books, and I really don't want to buy them from the bookstore because they're so much cheaper from Amazon......... ack. At least I was able to find where I wrote down the classroom numbers... this morning I had the horrifying realization that I didn't know where I was supposed to go, LOL.

I HAVE A KITTY! She slept with me all last night. Raquel was eager to see how she and Jax (her itty bitty dog) would get along. Marie is definitely boss, LOL. She swatted at him a few times with her declawed paws and gurgled little growls at him and he runs away now. Also, she uses her litter box like a big girl and likes the food I bought for her (not the same brand she'd had before). She's SOOO cute!!! Awwwwwww. Pictures soon, I promise!
