Yes, folks… Kate is home on a Saturday night. Strange, I know… it’s been awhile. I mean, I guess I could have called some friends or seen what Kevin was up to ( I think he’s moving his sister or something). I really just felt like staying in tonight though. I just needed a break. I’ve been so busy lately, I just haven’t had much time for myself; no time to relax.
That’s important to me, ya know? I love being busy and having, well, something of a social life, but it doesn’t leave you much time to think. I mean, I’ve been putting in about 50 hours a week at work lately, going out with Kevin a few nights a week (and usually not getting in until late- which really is meesing up my sleep schedule), usually doing something with either my aunt or the girls one or two nights… it all really just doesn’t leave me anytime for… me. I haven’t been keeping up with this thing, I haven’t been keeping up with my reading for the bookclub or just for myself… It really is a bit upsetting.
Not that I’m really complaining. I mean things are really just going great for me right now. I’m happier than I’ve been in a ridiculously long time. I mean I’ve got a job that I enjoy to a certain extent… yeah, all the overtime blows majorly, but at least I’m working… and the extra cash is nice too. I’ve got a good group of friends. The family’s doing well, overall. I’m in a relationship with a guy I adore… When was the last time I could say that? Holy crap, this is the first real relationship I’ve been in in oh… 3 1/2 years. Wow, I hadn’t realized it had been so long. But yeah, everything is just going really well. I’m happy. When was the last tim I could say that? I mean really… it’s been a looong time. Too long.
Of course, being me, this causes a little bit of worry. What if I mess it all up somehow? I’m good for that… The Fall will be here soon. Never a very good time for me. I’m sure I’ll find something to be very upset about in the next couple of months. Oh well, I guess I should enjoy it all right now and just be happy with being happy… don’t want to ruin a good thing.
Alright, I think I’m done for now… Perhaps I’ll get caught up on some of that reading that’s been piling up.
