life begins - me

(no subject)

So I was wondering this morning why I felt so rested and as if I actually accomplished stuff over the weekend when it dawned on me. I didn't spend any time with my family at all.

That sounds really awful, but two days not running after my sister and her two kids (nephew's nearly 30 months and niece is 11 months), two days of just doing what I wanted, being able to go out shopping within five minutes of realising I needed something, just having time alone - those two days were bliss!

Don't get me wrong, I love the kids, I put up with my sister and I ignore her partner - I am a family person a lot of the time. I completely understand why it takes three hours notice to actually get them all out of the house and even then I usually give them an extra hour because I know they won't be ready.

But to not have to deal with that - wow.

So you probably noticed I went on an icon-making frenzy at the weekend, especially yesterday. That was strange - fun, but very strange! I've already started working on the next batch, I'm thinking of doing episodic Buffy ones and since I've already started with this one I may as well pick this episode to start! (*cough* ms_graphics *cough*)

Right, off to get some work done before my buzz from the weekend wears off then...
life begins - me

I'm so bored!!!

So I've got this list of over 10,000 titles to check against the library catalogue before the next submission date (which is this Friday at the very latest) and all I'm doing is typing in the title, ticking the box if it's on the system, highlighting it if it's not.

I've been doing this pretty much non-stop for the past two weeks. I'm now scunnered with it. Completely and utterly.

The grade three job is supposed to either entail a degree of supervision or demonstrate a special aptitude for a particular skill. Apparently my special aptitude is to sit here and be bored out of my skull for weeks on end.

So, I have a challenge for you.

Something I can do in my head, a game, singing, anything, that will make me less bored! Help?
