My head has been spinning at a million miles-per-hour all week and it’s only Wednesday. Dang…
- This whole thing with my dad and his girlfriend is starting to adversely affect me. For a multitude of reasons, I’m starting to feel more and more distant to him…and that sucks because we’re closer now than we’ve ever been. It’s not her fault, it really isn’t…she’s a nice lady and all. But I still miss my mom…and as much as it hurts me to say this, this whole thing is a big fucking slap to her face. Yes, dad is lonely and I get that and will support him in whatever decision he makes. But that doesn’t mean I have to like it. AT ALL.
- On the plus side, I’ve been given a shit-ton more responsibility at work lately. I’m running one project, am a key figure in another project, am covering my own desk and also covering the desk of my team mate who is out on vacation for a week. Oh…and I’d be busy enough with JUST my desk!! So needless to say, it’s been insanely busy at work. It’s a good thing because if I can pull this all off I’ll come out the other side looking like a rose. Of course, if I mess up then all fingers point to me. Ugh.
Rugrat is coming to visit!!! Her plane ticket was confirmed for August 7th and (get this) she’ll be staying until September 1st!! That’s a REALLY long time but I can’t wait to see her. There’s so much more I could go on with this, but I think I’ll save it for another post on another day.
I’m missing my Sunshine. A lot. There’s so much going on in my life and I’m at such a weird crossroad of “awesome things” vs “really bad things”, it’s tough being unable to come home and share it with my partner. We’re still doing that “break” thing when we’re not together…trying to work on ourselves so that we can eventually be the best life partners that we can be. It’s not easy, though. And it brings to light (sometimes, anyway) just how difficult this long-distance relationship can be. I so desperately wish that things were different with our circumstances, but where that’s not changing any time soon I need to suck it up and continue to enjoy life as best I can.
- My tenant is moving out (hello there, Kijiji), my hot-water heater died on me yesterday morning (hello there, cold shower!), my internet modem is requiring an in-person technician visit (hello there, wasted time waiting for internet technician to arrive and fix problem in 5 minutes), and money issues are killing me (hello there, paycheck-to-paycheck).
Took Ankle Biter to see Cars 2 last weekend. Dude…movie prices are insane. It’s no bloody wonder that people illegally download whatever they can. I mean, between our two tickets, a bottle of water, a glass of pop, and some popcorn it was a $30 movie experience for TWO people (with one of them only being 4 years old). And on top of it all, there was practically nothing that made Cars 2 worth paying a bit extra to see it in 3D. It was an okay movie, I guess…but nothing stood out as being good for 3D. I hate that so many movies are going 3D when 90% of them don’t need or deserve it. The only movie I absolutely was amazed at was Avatar, which I was fortunate enough to have watched with Sunshine on an IMAX 3D movie theatre. Talk about an experience!!
- I’m back to having trouble sleeping again. Could be stress…could be my brain…could be my self-destructive nature. Don’t really know. The good thing is that I sleep SOOOOO much better in Sunshine’s bed (with her in it, of course). Thankfully, that’s only a couple of days away!!
