I’m not really much of a hot beverage drinker. 99% of the tea I drink gets chilled before I drink it. The mocha I drink is always iced. Even when I make hot cocoa I usually mix it half with milk so it’s not hot. I just don’t much care for hot beverages. But it is so fucking cold out this morning that I just couldn’t help myself – I made a regular cup of cocoa and have already started sipping it.
The temperature when I left the house this morning was 4 degrees. Yes kids, FOUR. Plus there’s a breeze so it feels even colder than that. Welcome to winter in the midwest, prepare to have your important bits froze off.
Things with Josh got better yesterday. Mid afternoon I gave up fighting with him. It really doesn’t do any good. I resigned myself to my fate and went home. We had a talk and went about our evening – simple as that. I’m pleased with how it came out, but I really wish I could figure out how to stop myself before I start these messes. Not saying it was entirely my fault this time, just saying that there were different choices I could have made through the day that would have resulted in a different outcome.
I mentioned yesterday that I have a monster list to work on today. And of course I’m not in my usual office so I’m having to improvise. Instead of having my 3 monitors to work with I’m using 2 different computers. Not sure how well this will work, but it’s worth a try.
There’s also a ton of things I want to get done at home this weekend. I haven’t started an official list yet, but I need to. Had Josh not been insistent on talking to me the entire fucking time I was getting ready for work this morning I might have remembered to grab my notebook.
I am really truly not looking forward to this visit with the brat. I’ve got way too many things to do to be messing around with her. And maybe I’ll just tell her and Josh that I’m busy and they need to do their own things. Moms don’t always give their undivided attention to their spawn 24/7, so there’s no reason I should be expected to, right?
The mood is not bad this morning. I’m still not sleeping great, but it was better last night. I think the problem is that my ear is bothering me. Totally my fault – if I’d just left those extra holes alone they wouldn’t be tender now. Oh well, I like the way it looks with the extra earrings. I’m just really hoping that I can pull off a good deal of work today and not have to worry about it so much tomorrow.
