Yeah, I know, it’s been a week since my last post. Sorry.
I’ve been mulling around, trying to read and comment. Been a little down in the dumps again. No reason in particular, but probably due to the massive amounts of snow we’ve had recently. Between shoveling on an almost hourly basis, freezing my ass off, and having to even look at the snow (I should mention I hate snow with a passion!), it’s got me bluer than usual.
Spring, where are you?! I need sunshine and warmth!
My house looks like a tornado hit it. I haven’t had the time or the desire to clean or do normal chores. I do what’s absolutely necessary. That’s it. And sometimes, I’m doing less than what is absolutely necessary. Matthew has cooked dinner twice in the past 10 days or so. Yeah, that should tell you how low I’ve been.
We got our tax return, so spent the weekend out shopping for things we’ve been in dire need of. Like pots and pans, ’cause I’m tired of picking out the flakes of non-stick covering from our no longer non-stick pans.
And clothes for all of us. We’ve all worn our socks through, to the point where it was almost pointless to even wear them, as there were too many holes to do a good job of keeping our feet warm. Same thing with my sweatpants.
I’ve been fighting with my insurance company. Well, actually, with my county assistance office that handles my insurance. They canceled it. Without telling me! Because I didn’t return a paper that I never got in the first place! I found out when I went to pick up my prescriptions, and was told my insurance was denied. So, I was without 2 of my most important prescriptions for a week. And suffered for it! With the tax refund, I was able to pay for them, without the insurance. I hope it’s all straightened out by the time I need a refill!
Back to the shopping – all weekend. Store to store to store, ad infinitum. Looking for the Wii Fit w/board. Which is pretty much what we’ve been doing for over a month. At one store, I’d missed out on one by less than a day! I gave up, convinced I’d never find one (even online was a bust). Then, 2am, Bill calls me from work.
Bill: “I have some good news for you!”. I could hear the smile in his voice.
Me: depressed and a slight bit pissy, “Yeah, what is it?”.
Bill: “I checked in electronics tonight, on a whim, and guess what’s in stock?!”
Me: perking up a bit, “You’re kidding, right?”.
Bill: “Nope, I’m not. I bought you a Wii Fit!”.
Me: smiling from ear to ear, “I love you! You’re the best husband ever!”.
10 minutes later, I get a text from him: “I guess you’re really going to owe me now.”
Funny guy. 😀
Yes, I know, again with Neil Diamond. But he did sort of write some of the soundtrack for my life. So it’s appropriate. And probably won’t be the last time!
