I'm quite certain that if you went back on my blog, there is a post that is exactly like this one.
Here comes September again! I love September. Kids are back in school and it always feels like the right time to start new routines and create some goals and resolutions. This past summer was great. In fact, our entire year has been quite awesome. We finally made our big move to the town of Rimbey, Alberta and we are starting to feel quite settled in to our new home. In fact, just today, I had my first "I hate this f***ing house day" so that must mean that we're home.
So this September is completely different than any other September as this September is the first one that I have been unemployed for. We managed to keep ourselves incredibly busy over the summer with a whole lot of camping trips and a vacation to BC, so I didn't really have the opportunity to wonder what I was going to do with all of my time, but come next Tuesday, WHAT THE HELL AM I GOING TO DO WITH ALL OF MY TIME??
I'm thinking I can probably keep myself quite busy parking my ass on the couch and watching Netflix doing all of my fitness videos. I purchased a gym membership in July and I would like to make use of that some. Side note: don't purchase a gym membership in July. Them are drinking months. I've always wanted to learn to play the guitar and I have a guitar....and the internet....sooooo......(this will probably be on next September's list again). I think I might get my ass back into running again. Winter pre-training?? That's a thing, right??
I give myself until September 10th until I start looking for a job.
My birthday is November 22. I'm a Cusp; both a Scorpio and a Sagittarius. Throughout my entire life, I always associated myself with Scorpio. I'm not one to follow astrology. In fact, I rarely look at it, but more recently when I have looked at my horoscope as a Scorpio, I sometimes can't see myself relating to it at all.
A little while ago, as a result of Pinterest and others pinning posts of their sign, I took it upon myself to explore Sagittarius, my other sign. I have to say, I was intrigued at how relative the horoscopes and traits were to my current life.. I've never researched what exactly it means to be a cusp, but I'm wondering if it's possible that it means that you will change who you are throughout the course of your life. I've always felt that I'm changing, that I'm becoming a different person, that I've never truly reached my potential. That, or I've been forcing myself to try to be a person that I was never meant to be.
Upon the little research that I have done, I have found out that my husband is also a Cusp. When I read about the traits of a Capricorn, I grew a whole new appreciation for him.
Like I said, I'm not an astrology nut, but I do wonder if it does play a significant role in who we are as people. Perhaps with enough knowledge on which signs the people that we are close to are, we can appreciate and accept each other a little bit more....
Certainly you all remember sweet little Penelope. My adorable little drunk kitten?
Perhaps she started out too young...
Well, apparently, Penelope has reached all new levels of drunkeness and is passing out in rather inappropriate places. I have found her in my towel drawer and on the printer. She's constantly on random shelves, in the bathtub, and sometimes can only make it halfway up the stairs to her cat house.
But these new antics of hers? Well, things are getting a little bit ridiculous.
