I sure hope I didn’t start September off on the wrong foot, writing this post one day into the September. I’ve been so tired this week. It’s mostly been sleepless because of the hot weather. It’s like someone didn’t want to let go of summer, turning the dial back up to 100-degrees.
The month of August was…something.
So many things happened. The month started off quite well. I got to take a nature day, driving the twisty winding road, soaking up the sunshine, and enjoying the solitude. I even got to try out the brand-new camera lens I’m going to bring on my trip later this month.
My second nature trip was with the family. It was mom’s idea. As much as I didn’t want to go that day, I couldn’t pass up a trip into nature even if I know the trip would be cut short and rushed. Still, I got some shots.
Unfortunately, my third nature trip proved to be probably my final trip of 2022, not counting the upcoming trip. I don’t wish to talk anymore about it, if you wish to know what happened, you can read this post. Thankfully, it didn’t take as long as I feared.
I am currently waiting for the parts for my car to arrive. The guy at the shop told me it can take up to 2 weeks. I hope that the parts will arrive prior to my vacation so I can drop off my car, have it repaired and have my car back when I return from my trip. Thankfully, the car is drivable because after 2 weeks of having my mom drive me to work, I don’t think I can stand another week of it. I’m driving myself to work next week. No more carpooling with Mom. No more working according to Mom’s schedule.
We were stuck in traffic and took us an hour to get to work on Wednesday when normally, it would take about 30 minutes. Mom never stopped complaining about the traffic and people in general.
I’m not someone who swears but that day, I was mentally swearing like a sailor, while in reality, I was clenching my teeth and fists so tight that it hurt. She didn’t allow me to complain about anything, what gave her the right to complain?
I really hope September will be better than August since I obeyed mom like a robot on the last day of August by not going to the department event – watch a soccer game while mingle with co-workers and eat to my heart’s content. I was a good robot despite the wild-child part of me has been threatening to claw its way out of me for the last 2 weeks.
Anyway, all I can hope is that September be good to me. After all, it is my birthday month and that ought to be a good reason.
