I wasn't feeling very inspired last night (which is usually when I write), so when I woke up this morning, I had nothing and was still not feeling it. So, I flaked out and posted one of my very favorite songs that I always think on when I feel stressed or overwhelmed.
I also wanted to thank everyone who left comments yesterday. It's such a complicated issue that had I kept listing all the wrongs, we'd still be here this morning.
I get very tired of maintaining one sided relationships. If I can be there for you, I will be. I expect you to be there for me, within reason. I mean, if I asked someone for a favor once and they were legitimately already obligated to another project or whatever at that time, I understand. However, after about 4 such slights and then I find that most of the "cover-ups" are flat out lies... well, then I start to lose my faith.
The last time I checked friendships were based on honesty, loyalty and trust. Without any of those and a good measure of their complete opposites, I get the hint. Loud and clear.
I mean, how do you explain to your children why their uncle and aunt can't be bothered to send even just a birthday email (forget present or even mailing a card - I never thought that necessary). But, not even an email or phone call on the birthdays? Ever?
Anyway, enough on THAT. It's drained me enough for the time being.
I have a load on my plate today. I'm waiting for the first load of laundry to come out the dryer, so I can put a 2nd load in. I still haven't had a shower (it's 10:32). I need to get to a couple of different stores. Then, I need to pick up Buddy from school at 2:40 and have him back at the school by 4:50, so he can work at the Fish Fry.
Guess we'll have dinner there again this Friday - which is fine. The food is always good. However, anything worn in there smells like seafood later and has to be washed! LOL.
I was so lazy last night, there was a PTO meeting at 6, but I only found out about it when I had to take Sissy into the school to pee. We had been sitting in the pick up line, waiting for the bell to ring and she had to go, so we went in and on my way out of the office, I overheard someone mention a PTO meeting. I didn't receive any notice, although they said a reminder had gone home....
That happens a lot this year. I either don't get reminders or get them with such short notice it's ridiculous. I'm sure they're all crammed in Buddy's desk.... So, anyway, I just didn't feel like rushing back down there so quickly after dinner had been prepared and the kitchen cleaned up.
Ok, I need to fold some laundry, then hop in the shower. If I'm not able to swing by blogs this morning, I'll get caught up this evening. Better late than never, huh?
Judging by the type of day I've had already, I'll consider it a success that I get to them at all!
Have a happy Friday and first day of Spring (?... If I say it often enough, maybe it'll happen).
