Not What I Wanted

When I woke up this morning, I found an envelope outside my door with "Canada Revenue Agency" along with a Canadian flag printed up in the corner. It was reasonable to assume that I would find my tax return inside of it, but instead, it appears to be the same thing that I received last year: a notice that one of the forms I signed at H&R Block had authorized them to conduct business related to income tax matters on my behalf. No check to be found, so maybe in another couple weeks? I still haven't received either of the hair-related items I'm waiting on either, which is starting to get irksome, because I asked Manoah if we would be able to get things started next Tuesday, which is less than a week away now. I suppose there is still time, because my hair has to be bleached as light as possible before either of the things that are still on their way can be used, but I'd like to at least have the toner before anything is done. Adam, on the other hand, got two packages, so who knows? I might still have some luck before the end of the week. In other news, something I learned of something interesting and different at work last night, which has to do with Melissa. While it feels like it was only last year that she took over Earl's position as general manager, she's already off to another job, as of the 1st of April. I do want to acknowledge the possibility of it just being an April Fools' joke, but that doesn't seem likely. I can't remember the exact location, but she's taking over as general manager at (a) Starbucks, presumably in Windsor, and while Mary will act as general manager in the meantime, a new person to take the actual position must be hired, which complicates things for me in a couple ways.

Number one, will that affect my plans for May? I talked with Dan about this, and we both came to the conclusion that if the time I requested to have off is already written down / booked, then I have nothing to worry about, but if it's not, I'll be in a difficult position, which I suppose is fine for now. At latest, I'll ask for clarification on either Friday or Saturday, and be able to proceed from there. I don't mind having to ask Mary, because as mentioned before, we get along better with each other these days compared to before, and if they hire a new general manager before the end of April, and the time I want off in May is not written down, I'll meet with the new general manager, same as I did with Melissa, to discuss my concerns, as they run further than just plans for the month after next. In particular, there's the issue of what'll happen if I want to go away after that, and also what will happen with helping out at Heart and Stroke. Will I still always have Monday and Thursday off? I hope so, because I prefer my schedule to remain mostly consistent, but that could still all change. Otherwise, last night was more or less fun, so I hope tonight goes the same way. Hot, probably, but instead of feeling irritable as I was the week before last, I'm able to find enjoyment in most everything (including washing dishes and sweeping, which are normally repetitive, annoying tasks), which I would like to sustain for as long as possible.

Aside from work and status of packages currently being waited on though, I want to have a shower before it gets too much later, which is pushing most other things from my mind. I had a dream last night about being at the furmeet in May, except that it was here, at our house instead of in the party room in Toronto, and it was all too noisy and distracting and busy to be able to focus, and therefore get a good sleep in the midst of. Eventually, I flopped down on a table (so that the upper half of my body was flat on it, but I was still standing), and a couple people came up behind me, one of whom did the same thing I had, right on top of me (sort of like a hug), which made me feel the most relaxation during that entire dream. It was weird, and I'm still not sure what was going on here to make me dream about that (last night, I dreamt that Mom and Dad were cleaning my closet, and woke up yet was still asleep enough to hear them say something from inside of it, and look up at the door to see that it was still closed and locked, which was both confusing and alarming), but it's still no more unusual than the dream I wrote about in my previous entry. With that though, I'm off to have a shower, as I want to get in there before anybody else does. It'd be nice to beat them for a change~
