Happy birthday, Dad!

Not working the night shift after all, way to throw me off.

My 23 and Me results arrived - I'm a mutt, as previously known: a mix of British-Irish and German-French, with the rest being "mixed Northern-Western European." And I don't have any "carrier genes" for a slew of genetic diseases, so my non-existant children can stop worrying.

9/21/16
Eve and I went to see In the Heights at Phoenix Theatre downtown last night. They knocked it out of the ballpark - fantastic production. I was in tears at the end, a little (OK, a lot) homesick and just in love with the show all over again. I might go back and see it again before it closes.

Eye doctor today, and then a day of errands. I'm working the night shift Saturday and Sunday, and will also be off on Monday to make up for it.

9/16/16
Attempted to introduce Miss Mona to Marvin, received a nasty bite (from the little shit) on my left hand. Good thing I keep a spare bottle of Augmentin in the house.

9/15/16
I work hard so I can rescue kitties. My lifelong goal is complete. With the addition of Miss Mona, a ten-year old fat tabby from MCACC (Maricopa County Animal Care and Control, where Rocky and Grace and the late Bob came from), I have an even dozen kitties in my care, and I couldn't be happier. She's already taken over the household, and is purring up a storm.

Yankees/Red Sox this weekend. Another perk of the job is that I'm home in time for baseball. I had been thinking about canceling my MLB Extra Innings package on DirecTV because I wasn't making the most of it, but now that I'm home by dinnertime, like a "normal" person, I get to watch more.

Mom and Aunt Linda are seeing Hamilton tonight - I can't wait to hear how Mom liked the new cast.

9/12/16
Commemorated 9/11 the same way I do every year - by not-watching television or being online much. Media Avoidance Day, volume 15. I just can't.

My friends Yessica and Brian - former neighbors in Verrado, who've been in Hawaii for the past year and a half - are moving back to the mainland! They flew in Saturday night and I met them at the airport, as I'm watching their kitties while they make a quick trip to Tucson (for Brian to interview somewhere). He has another offer in Colorado Springs, but they're desert people, so they're hoping Tucson works out. So am I - it'd be great to make some trips down there and have more friends to see.

9/6/16
What I really like about the new job - I'm not on call. I don't work from home. And I had a three-day weekend for Labor Day! I spent most of it napping and cat-huffing, but that's beside the point.

9/2/16
The hardest part of the new job isn't waking up early, it's getting to sleep at a reasonable hour. I've been a night owl my whole life, so I've been forcing myself to crawl into bed (with a generic Unisom) by 9pm, and if I'm not asleep by 10pm, taking an Ambien. So far, so good. One of the perks of being on the managememt team? Holiday weekend! I absoutely cannot afford to go anywhere, but I sure will enjoy my three-day weekend, probably by lounging poolside and catching up on my reading. I'm in the middle of rereading Voyager in preparation for the next season of Outlander.
