Well, it rained today so I wasn't able to go to the house to fog the place like I had intended. It's almost 3am right now so I'm really going to be pushing my limits tomorrow to get shit done. With only 5 days left now, time seems to be slipping away for all of the things I have left to do. Unfortunately I can't find anyone to detail the truck for us, so I'm going to do my best job to get it done. I also have to stop in town tomorrow to buy your cake mix as well as the foggers and food coloring, with a stop at the bank and the water company first. Then on my way back home I hopefully will be able to stop at the tire place to get Nubby to look at the truck and possibly fill the radiator with water or whatever needs to be done since I'm no mechanic and that's what you say needs to be done. Maybe he can also change out the front tire. You know, come to think of it, it seems like both front tires are a bit low. So I may have him look at both of the front tires. Who knows. That's if I have time-- otherwise I'll stick to airing this one up until you get home. Hopefully I'll be safe.
Tuesday I'm going to talk to Grace about driving her truck to go get you on Saturday so I don't have to take our truck which would be awesome. However, you said we would have one extra-- though there would be room in her truck... The extra wouldn't be for too long, so I don't see the problem there. If Grace doesn't come, I will give Bo a bath and bring him with me Saturday. I have a hellacious to-do list before you get back, and I've got my fingers crossed that everything will be perfect for you when you get home. -Sighs- I don't want to let you down.
As for your birthday, I am going to talk to Grace about it on Tuesday to see if we can have it at the restaurant on Sunday. If she says yes, we'll be going over there after the buffet for you to have cake and get birthday cards and such from Grace and Logan and myself of course. I have no idea who else I'd invite aside from your brothel of girls that work at the restaurant. ;) Or it could just be me and you, and we could do something special. Or you could have both. I haven't decided what I want to do yet, but I think I have plenty of time right now to mull it over.
When you get home, or rather, to grandma's... The place will be decorated. You can use your imagination as to how it's going to look. I have a lot to do in order to make it look just the way I have in envisioned before you get here. Streamers (maybe), balloons (probably) and romance (definately). I can't honestly say there will be anything different than the usual pampering that you're used to, aside from the huge bathtub that your dirty butt is going to get thrown into when you walk in the door. HAHA. -Bites her lip- I definately hate this seperation time and hope it doesn't happen too frequently anymore. Although the pay is good, it doesn't last for very long. This I know.
I am going to deposit as much money in the bank as I feel I can spare tomorrow, just to make sure that you have what you need when you are coming home. I pray that everything goes well for me for the next five days so I can get everything done that I need to do. Being on that side of town anyway because of work will make it easier for me to work over there to make sure the house is clean and spotless. Well, maybe not spotless. I'm going to give it my best go though. I think the bedroom's mess is the most important comparitively to the rest of the house-- although the rest of the house seems to be in pretty good condition right now. I just have to figure out how to get rid of all of the fucking dust that has accumulated on the media center in the living room. It's always ridiculous. I guess we need to keep the animals out of the house more frequently, to keep the dust and hair down to a manageable level. Grandma's house is dusty but not as bad as our house. I know it's because of the animals. Perhaps I should rethink the rat situation also, and part with the ones we can bear to part with. Including the cages, which I could sell as cabinets or even a cage if someone wanted them. We could sell the wire cages we have and be done with it. Including the undeniable smell of small critters in the house. After Aneya, Nayeli, Dumbo, and Blondie passed away-- I dunno, things have been different. I know this, you know this, we've both recognized it. Although I do love Rhiannon, Lily, Delilah, and the new Dumbo (Kilala) as well as Simba, Tux, and Biscuit... Perhaps we should just stop trying to raise animals and focus on each other.
I am going to sell Jasper to the first person interested, even if it means practically giving him away. I think it is possible that if we got the girls all spayed that we could let the boys run free more often and come and go out of the house as they pleased. I think it would stop a lot of the fighting not to have girls in heat all the time. Levi looks like he is gaining weight, just fyi. Ju Ju looks like he is, too. And I don't know what to do about Tag's fur. He looks naked. I wanted to clean out their kennel the other day while I was there but couldn't find the rake or I would have done it. I guess I'll look again tomorrow while I'm there.
There is a lot that needs to be discussed between the two of us when you get home. I suppose we'll talk about it then.
For now, I am going to get my alarm and move it to grandma's room where I have been sleeping the past few nights and get some rest. It is even closer now to 3am than it was when I started and I'm feeling the onset of dead exhaustion.
I love you, goodnight, and I will see you soon.
