Big empty apartment

Now, for the first time in 10 months I find myself alone again, and for the first time in my life, living alone in an apartment. Two words: IT SUCKS!
I dropped Daniel off at the airport early sunday morning for his flight to MD, and returned home and spent the rest of the day manaically cleaning just to have something else to put my mind on. That night I don't think I finally passed out until 1, and I left the hall light on. Yes, I am scared of the dark, and my cats make weird noises at night that make me jumpy. Last night I went to bed earlier, but I still feel sleepy this morning. I have 3 more months of this? Yuck.
It's a good job, doing good things, but still:(
Enough griping from me for now:) I assure you, I will be fine.
Side note: still working the leg issue, things are looking up again.

Yes, still here

Still living a nice peaceful life:-D
There is news however, both of the good sort, the bad sort, and the kind that made me go "huh."
First the bad sort (though it really isn't that bad if you put it into the right light), My beloved better half has taken a new job that will allow him to do what he does best, and enjoy it much. However, it takes him over to Iraq, so yours truely finds herself in a new position, as the one left behind. He will only be gone 3 months at a time though, so I am sure I will survive.
In good news, I have been consulting with doctors once again about my knee, and have been told that at this point what is causing the pain is most likely cartlidge, and that can be repaired. I have to go through some X-rays and another MRI to be sure, but I am confident that finally I will have a solution.
In the sort that made me scratch my head a bit, my other younger (YES you are still younger than me, though you may be bigger) brother has decided to join the Army. Odd, because I have to admit that I never thought him the sort, but his older sister joined, and his younger brother did, so he is flanked by two Army vets, not to mention the long line of them on Mum's side. Anyhows, I am proud of him and his decision, and hope that all works for him and his wife. They are due next month and I will be an Auntie:-D

Interesting articles

This just struck me, one because I used to like Mel Gibson, and two because Yiddish is such a fascinating language.
The situation isn't all that funny, but you have to laugh at this one.
