Prepare for a long post...
I leave with Jim the day after tomorrow. I have a lot to do. So naturally I am spending my morning at the computer. It's OK. I have a list. Among the items on my list: 1.deposit paycheck. 2.Pay six bills. 3.Wish I had another paycheck.

"I met a possum."
Last night I went with my mom around the block to see some animals she was taking care of for a friend. As we opened the garage door the get to a few cats, a possum walked casually by our feet. Literally within a few inches. It kinda looked at us, paused, and kept going. Then it crawled behind some junk. My mom said it was just a youngster, which I thought was fun since it was already bigger than a large cat. How big do those things get, anyway? At any rate, I thought it was adorably cute. Of course, I've also had pet rats. And for those of you wondering, the cats were in a large cage-totally safe from the possum.

Ok, and now for something totally unneccesary:
A really old quiz I read on Todd's lj:
1) When was the last time you went to the bathroom outside? Traveling with Jim. I had to pee SO badly and there were no gas stations open (it was late) so he pulled over by one that was closed and He stood guard while I peed on (yes, on) a wooden wall by a dumpster.
2) When was the last time you saw one of your parents? About a minute ago.
3) Which family member do you most resemble? One of my dad's sisters.

7) When was the last time you tripped and fell? I slipped and fell on my booty like six months ago when I still worked at Smith. Jim was dropping me off at work. One minute I was walking to the door, the next he looked and I was gone. I was flat on my back. On the ice in front of the door.
8) Where was the last place you slept besides your home? I've fallen asleep with Jim on his couch more times that I care to recall. It's what we do. Turn the t.v. on, go unconscious. Apparently we are old.
