Oh. My. Gawd.
I’m exhausted. I slept fine Friday and Saturday nights – of course. Last night, no dice. I was up off and on all fucking night. I don’t even know what to blame this time. I didn’t drink any more caffeine than usual, no spicy foods, took my pills when I was supposed to, I was even tired when it was time to go to bed. What the FUCK?
Anyway, the weekend was pretty decent. I’m letting Josh stay another week. He doesn’t know this.
The car incident is worse than I had thought on Friday. It wasn’t that someone tried to break in to the car, someone hit it with their car. In the light of day you can very clearly see red paint transfer smeared in the dent. Problem is, the only person on our block with a red car very clearly didn’t do it. I called the police and filed a report but they told me there’s very little chance of getting any kind of resolution on this since no one saw anything. Oh well, at least I’ve done my part. The car goes in to the body shop Wednesday morning. There goes my financial cushion for the month.
I worked on the sweater as much as I was able to over the weekend, which is obviously why it got finished. We did do some other things. I ran my mom to the car dealership to have some work done on her car, we all went to the Verizon store and grocery store together, had lunch out, then Josh did some homework, Mom and I called Verizon, we went back to get the car, and Josh did some more homework. Saturday was Mexican night – I made my homemade version of burrito bowls. It turned out pretty good. We all drank margaritas in our pajamas and Josh and I watched most of a movie while I knit.
Sunday morning I got up early and got back to work. I was almost completely finished before breakfast. I put the last touches on it while Josh continued to (pretend to) work on his English paper. I also finished his first mitten, made 5 of 22 butterflies, and cast on for a pair of leg warmers for the brat. Josh decided that would be a more suitable gift for her since she’s so big into the ice skating right now. I had extra yarn that I decided I didn’t need for the butterfly project, so it should work out just fine. And these are dirt easy – just big tubes of 2×2 rib in blue and purple stripes. Since she doesn’t seem to like things that match I’m doing them mirrored – one will be predominantly blue with thin purple stripes, the other will be predominantly purple with thin blue stripes. Should make her happy.
Anyway, it was really a pretty decent weekend. I got all of the chores done, cooked some good food, got a tremendous amount of knitting done, and had good sex with the old man. I had been thinking that if we were able to keep our collective shit together this weekend and really be good to each other that maybe that would mean we had turned the corner and were going to be better to each other. I think that’s what happened. We got along pretty well the entire time and he was really pretty good to me. He didn’t even ask to smoke in the car while I was driving – he would just leave wherever we were a few minutes before Mom and I so that he could stand outside and have his smoke. I thought that was really pretty decent of him. He says he’s proud of me for quitting. I know I’m proud of me.
The mood has been pretty decent all weekend. I am a bit pissed off about what happened with the car, but I’m so happy about how the sweater turned out that it kind of dampens the pissed-ness. I’m looking forward to a good week with lots more progress made in the gift making department. I teach an old class this Friday, which I’m hoping goes well. Otherwise it looks to be a fairly quiet week ahead, which will be nice. I do have therapy on Thursday – not exactly looking forward to that, but I know I really need to go.
