Summer Vacation - Day 2

Yesterdays goals were mostly met. I worked until 4...somewhere in there I washed 4 windows, made SUNTEA in a 1 gallon jug.... At 4 I put on my headphones and Ipod and took a long walk around the hood. Then it was 5 and I was bored. Still no wheels so I walked to Bill's for happy hour. Jamey ws working until 10 or so - it was his last day at Moxie so I wasn't sure when I would see him. Terri joined me at Bill's and we had a snack a few beers....and I secured a ride home. I mean, it's only 3 or 4 tenths of a mile walk! But Rte 1 can be dangerous for the non-sober in the dark.... T & I sat at the beach for a while then went back tot eh cottage for a beer and lit the tiki torches on the deck and listened to music. She left sometime around 9:30 and I was enjoying the peace and quiet of the hood during the week 0 but I was getting chilly. First I changed into a t-shirt. then capri leggings. then a sweatshirt. Around 11 I finally decided I was cold and Jamey was not where closer to getting home from work. Contacts came out and makeup off while I waited for him. Finally at 12:30 I went to bed. He had texted a few times but I gave up. I was feeling lonely and very unhappy about it. So he gets home after having bourbon shots with the boys and we talked some until my bitch side popped out that I wanted to tell him about MY day and that I was lonely. Had a wee dispute until he hugged me and then listened to my day. This morning I was up by 8 firing up the laptop for work. I 'worked' while cleaning 4 more windows in the cottage and the rest of the dining room got douched...ceiling fan, walls, ceiling, floors. I killed oodles of spider colonies!!! So that was a big sense of accomplishment to get that room cleaned today. ... My vent about sharing the cottage today is: does anybody else clean this place?............ Jamey took off for a job interview and returned 4 hours later. Once again I got to feeling lonely and told him straight off. And that I am stressing over his family coming down to the cottage. Last night he told me that he invited the boys from Moxie to come here to party on Monday. SERIOUSLY? oh no one will come". right. and I am a natural blonde. I took a happy pill which finally is kicking in. He got a 'bra' for the Honda from some guy for $40 and installed that on that car - so now that car looks bad ass. Which is cool. Then we sat and chatted as he complained of a where is he now? Taking a nap to get rid of the migraine. As I finish up work so I can power off and put on my OOO ( Out Of Office) message for the next week. Again feeling alone...this is getting to a regular habit this week ...and I am not liking it. Tonight I am heading up to Granby to see Lisa who is up from Granby visiting her sister. I really don't want to drive all the way up to GRanby but she did drive up from Virginia soooo..... Now I gotta call about the truck to see if it's ready or if I have to wait until tomorrow. Ugh. I miss my 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT quad cab with a hemi! Only had it since March and it's a big truck but I love it! And lets see how long the man naps. OK - that is todays venting. I gotta head out around 5 and will be home ????? Vacation is starting in 4....3....2...1.......and go!!

Summer Vacation ~ 2015

WEll here I am settled into the cottage for the next 9 days! I do have to work today and tomorrow and am working with my laptop set up outside on the deck! Currently on a conference call and listening to the birds and the trees rustle.... Oh How I love it here!!! This is MY Vacation week here at the cottage - 47 Mohawk Road, Westbrook CT..... Daddy bought the place in 1973 and this is my real "HOME". I have lived here a few times in the summer while in between housing ( or wretched awful boyfriends - lol). Every summer I grew up here - getting up and down to the beach by 10 - hanging out all day on the beach with friends tanning and such. Then back home by 5:30 for dinner and showers and back out to the beach to hang out with friends. Or go to DQ , or the arcade.... or where ever!! Life was simple back then (We are talking late 70's into the 80's). But this cottage is my treasured home and I relish my time here. Finances being what they are - and now with my sisters and brother & I as the owners of record, I pay about $2,700 a year to enjoy the cottage. The past few years have been a struggle between the siblings with spending time here. Since I live a mile away it was presumed that "I can come here anytime" and "the others felt they were entitled to use the cottage all through the summer key months. This year we are doing something different, by splitting up the weekends in June and Terri & I get the cottage in July and Steve & Mary get it in August - through Labor Day. As typical, T & I are getting the short end of the stick but WE GOT JULY!!! So let's see how it goes. The rule/decision was that if it's not your month, you can pop in to use the bathroom. Which my brother and his daughter just did. I hope they don't come back. It actually puts me on edge thinking that they are nearby and may come back! I hope he doesn't intend on lounging around having cocktails or using the grill....argghhh...grrrrrr.... My vent about sharing the cottage today is: people do not shut the water off completely, so the water bill expense will be interesting to see what it is from last year. My plans for today? "Work" on the deck until 4 ish.... - possibly go to Happy Hour at Bill's with Terri.... - go for walks to the beach - set up croquette in the back yard - wash a few windows - make SUNTEA. And......I am off !!!!
