Random Tuesday – Music keeps me alive, post-dog world, Xmas will be here before you know it

  • The Ghost tour ended and there won’t be any new content. This makes me very sad. Luckily, we got a lot of good stuff out of their time on the road, enough to get me through. Here’s my beefy boy Aether.6b75cf2d7e5906c8b10f6a9ecd47d4f7
  • Don’t be alarmed by the creepy mask. He’s really very cute (and very British) underneath:

  • Every day without Todd is a little easier. I definitely do not miss cleaning poop out of a crate twice a day. I don’t miss having to take him out early in the cold, and late in the cold. I will say, it’s weird not to have to worry about leaving a door open. For many many years we had to make sure no pets ran out into the road. And now, we don’t!
  • I’m looking forward to the Christmas break. I am in dire need of some downtime. I think about the days we had off for Thanksgiving and though there were moments when I was a little bored and sick of sitting around, it was also much needed R&R.
  • I’m already tired of being cold. It’s not even THAT cold this week but I feel like I’ve been freezing for a year.
  • On that note, if anyone ever thinks I am hard to shop for, that’s untrue. I am EASY. You get me anything having to do with my fave bands and fuzzy socks and blankets and there you have it. Done.
  • I joked with Ash that if anyone was looking for last minute gift ideas for me, they can pay for my conceal carry class. It’s on my 2019 to-do list but I can never seem to put that money aside. Or the time. The good one is eight hours. But if you’re gonna do it, you should do it right.
  • I can’t believe I never listened to the band HIM before. Because wow, epic gothic metal! It’s exactly the kind of atmospheric music I am looking for. It’s a little sludgy and slow but melodic and sexy. I know we’re all in Christmas music mode but I’m sitting firmly over here in another realm entirely. It is a lonely life I lead. LOL.
  • Office Xmas potluck and Secret Santa is today. I’m wearing a red Ralph Lauren turtleneck… that I hate. It looks nice but the fabric around my neck bothers me and it’s a little short. BUT, I had to be festive. Sometimes I am such a humbug though, I swear it.
  • OK I really do have a lot to work on so peace out until tomorrow!

  1. I hate turtleneck tops and scarves around my neck! With you there!! I got my concealed carry three years ago and got my own weapon a year ago. I don’t carry often, but it is nice to be legal!! Good luck and just do it!

  2. I’m totally okay with getting fuzzy socks and blankets too! Hope you have a great holiday season and get the rest you need. My husband is really wanting me and him to get our Conceal Carry classes next year too. We both have FOID cards and the pistols but would like the CCL too.
