Holy shit.

So freakin' tired.  

Worked 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday last week (and a bit later on a couple of those days), and then went in to help Kazzy train newbies at work on Saturday, from 8.30am until nearly 5pm.  6 DAY WEEKS ARE RIDICULOUS.

Spent most of Sunday being lazy, so on Monday I had all the weekend shift authorisations & reports to do, PLUS it's a payroll week this week.  So I finished at 6pm on Monday and Tuesday, and 5pm today.  Hopefully tomorrow I'll get away early, because I have some banking to do.

Was invited to a hens party this weekend, but since I'm so behind on my study, I had to decline.  Sucky.  :-(

Still need to book my bus tickets for Easter (catching public transport on a holiday - I must be nuts).  I'm looking forward to it, though.  Kazzy is gonna come down on the Monday to pick me up, so I will be able to bring some of my books back.  Yay!  Plus, it will be good to see Mum.

Speaking of parents, I rang Dad last night and had an hour-long chat with him.  He's finally got a job!  Curtain sales again (he did it when we lived in Australia ~20 years ago).  He sounds much better too, like he's finally taking care of himself.  Was great to hear.

Anyways, Ima go do something not computer related (like maybe see if I can coax new-kitty inside... she's still skittish).

The good news is that Lilo came home.  Yay!  She spent today alternating between sleeping on my desk and sitting on my window-sill, as far as I can tell.  She certainly seems happy enough.

Work was good today.  I feel like I'm finally settling in.  There are still plenty of things for me to learn, but every day I get the hang of something new, so I'm making progress at least.  I've also begun reorganising stuff, and there's a ton of archiving to do, which will clear up a lot of space in my office.  Tomorrow is payroll day, and ought to be fun considering how many staff we've had off sick etc.  My boss is one very awesome chick, though, so I know she'll help me out a lot.  I'm very lucky.

My exam on Friday was much easier than I thought, and now I'm super-impatient about getting my grade.  Better be worth the money I paid for that paper - the actual learning process itself certainly wasn't.  And now it's difficult to be motivated about my next few papers.  It's a bad sign when I'm more interested in reading books about MS Access than I am in studying for a paper!

I finally watched season one of Farscape.  It grew on me, although I'm not fanatical about it.  The Aussie accents still throw me!  Might give the next season a shot and see how it goes.  Possibly all my fan energy has been spent on NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles, which I am currently loving.

Tomorrow we're having my cuz and her partner over for dinner.  I can't wait; it's been ages since they've visited us.  I'm gonna do some chicken & chorizo kebabs for the bbq, along with chinese honey sausages and some lamb steaks.  Add a salad and some minted baby potatoes, and we're done!  Then it'll be time to sit back and watch House at 8.30pm.  :-D

Two days ago, we got a new cat.  She's actually the mother of our current kitty, and she'd been living with Kazzy's parents until they moved towns.  At that point, she went to live with Kazzy's sister, who also had another kitty of her own.  The two cats did not get along: mama kitty is very bossy and greedy, and J's other kitty was not coping well with this invasion.

So we volunteered to try Lilo (aka mama cat) here, figuring she'd hopefully get on better with our (also bossy and greedy) kitty, Neo.  Two days we had her... and then she ran away.  Don't ask me how; the friggin' thing must've been taking lessons from Houdini.

I'm hoping she comes back when she's ready.  She is super cute and cuddly, and is the third generation of cats owned by Kazzy's family.  It would be really sad if she's gone for good!
