Something is Still Wrong

I have a decision to make about November that isn't related to what I wrote about before. I'm not sure how long I have to decide, but I imagine making up my mind by the middle of October would be preferable, if I can make it 'til then. I don't want to get into the specifics right now, and as far as I can tell, there may be other factors contributing toward feeling this way, but I'm not so sure anymore. I'd like to hike to / from the zoo, like I wrote about before, and still think it would be interesting to help out more at the furmeet, but if there's anything that shows, it's that I do want to go again, but there are certain things to be worked out. Along the same lines, I need to stop forgetting / procrastinating, and ask everybody here what they want for Christmas. At this point, I'm about ready to go with giving them all $60~$80, and saying "Have fun". However, a different idea came to mind recently, which was to take everybody out to Real Canadian Superstore / Walmart for late-night shopping, tell them they can spend up to a certain amount, and let them grab whatever they want. I could still bring everything home and wrap it up, but that would defeat the whole idea of presents being a surprise, and it would also be better to just give them money, or maybe instead of that, one inexpensive gift, and money to accompany that. Were I to go that route, I'd already have gifts for Adam and Trish, and would have something in mind for Mom, but no matter how I think about it, I always come back to finding it the lazy thing to do.

Given that, it shouldn't be too difficult to infer that I've been in a fun mood recently, but overall, it hasn't been so bad. Because I was up so early after work on Friday messing with my Vita, I ended up being tired and slow at work yesterday, which, as I see it, is the better combination. Tired and slow leads to being in a relatively subdued mood, whereas tired and fast leads to being irritable and quick to anger (although those are probably one in the same). Fortunately, it wasn't too busy either, and I was actually able to get the dishes caught up before the end of the night, and then listened to music on my PSP after 3, because we'd been listening to country music on the radio for the other seven hours. Tonight may be different, because I don't feel so tired, but there are still things on my mind, which may be... sufficiently distracting. I already have something to look forward to at home, which will be making a box of Kraft Dinner for supper, and watching more episodes of either Hell's Kitchen or Pokémon, and then there's tomorrow, which I'll deal with then. I should probably not go to 7-11 right then, as I have only ~$30 until we get paid, but there's no way of knowing what will happen between now and then. I just hope I can come to some sort of decision by Tuesday...
