It barely seems like we were home…

Tomorrow we travel again… this time to blow up Alabama with fireworks. Or film it, depending on whether you’re James or myself. He does the dirty deeds and I film the incriminating evidence. It all works out.

Tonight… dinner out with Mr.TheMad’s mom (in town from D.C.), wine and more wine.

Today… useless. Utterly freaking useless. Worse even than yesterday was useless. At least…

Yesterday… Thornton mid-week holiday fiesta… with gifts! But on the work front, yesterday was useless.

The only new years resolution I can think of that I need to make is to find some resolve. And, I didn’t mean the carpet cleaner by that, but actually our carpet is quite spotty and some Resolve would also be nice to find some time in the new year. Also, perhaps, a maid to use the Resolve, since it’s unlikely I will find the resolve to clean the carpet.

If tomorrow wasn’t the last day of my current job, if I weren’t holding my final paycheck already in my hands, I’d say I was worried about being fired for being so useless this week.

Now I’m just worried that I can’t shake this uselessness long enough to get some work done and put together a portfolio so I can find a better, steadier, more glamorous, possibly international job that I might actually like or at least not totally hate.

My boss left a message this morning that he’d be available for about the next five hours if I would please call him back. I wonder if calling him back on Tuesday is too late. I wonder if I care.
