oh man

I am finished with the front yard. It is gorgeous, man. I worked my tail off.
Z is convinced that the old bat next door is trying to keep up with the Joneses. I think it would be hysterical if it were true, but she started working on her yard before I was done, so I think she's just always like that. But it makes a much more satisfying story if you believe that she went out and bought all those flowers and spent all that time because she realized our yard was nicer than hers. (It is, by the way.)

It rained last night and will rain today, which is good. But I am so tired. I had a moment at work yesterday when I just Could Not Deal, which was sort of bad, but I got over it and made it home in one piece. I'm not feeling well today, though-- stuffy head, cough, ears and nose plugged. I'm torn over whether I'm frightened or hopeful that it's allergies. i've never had allergies before. I don't want allergies. But I don't want a cold either.
I'm just so tired. I ran out the door at 11 yesterday, and got home at 9:30, did the same Wednesday, will do the same today-- taking the bus is nice and all in that it's door to door, but Jesus, it's a long day. And they've just changed the attendance policy now-- we used to be given ten minutes' leeway each side so that we could punch in ten minutes early or late. Now we're allowed seven minutes early and one minute late. One minute! This change, might I mention, was instituted simultaneously with us now having to park our cars in Lot B and wait for a shuttle, rather than parking in a lot close enough that we could walk.
One goddamned minute! Forget that. The later bus gets me in at 2:06, theoretically, which under the ten minute rule was marginally OK except that the bus is always late and gets there at 2:15 instead. Which, still, was only 5 minutes.

Today I'm so tired, I just want to putter a bit, take a shower, and then take a nap, and take that later bus. But I guess I shouldn't. Except that I feel like complete shit. Bah. *snurfle* I may well tell them to go fuck themselves with this "tardy" shit.

In other news, is there other news? Not really. I don't remember when I last updated this. I have not written a word on the novel for over two weeks now, although I've reread most of it. I am convulsed with doubt as to whether it needs to have its timeline rearranged. I have at least outlined the end-end. Which had been eluding me for two years. So that's nice. But I haven't written it, and I don't trust it until I've written it.

But my head is about to explode, so I must go now and stare moodily at the ceiling for an hour until it's time to get on that fucking early bus.
