I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop. My youngest left a "nice" message. It was that she would pick up her mail sometime in the future, because she was sure she had more then what I had told her about. I replied to her saying that I would tell her about all her mail because I didn't want her to miss something that may be important to HER. She messaged back that she would come by Saturday, because she was working all days every day til then. And....ta da...Thank you. What a boon to my feelings! She actually said thank you to me! It's small, but at least I know there is still some semblance of human beingness in her. She is not 100% monster. I don't have an overwhelming sense of doom in this other shoe dropping thing. I think it's just my nerves. Years ago, when I had this feeling, it was an overwhelming sense of doom and well, it turned out my instincts were right. But that's a story for another day and it's R rated for yuckiness in content.
On other fronts, I am looking forward to two full days off. They will be spent inside because the weather is being a butthead. Rain and wind. I am giving myself a few hours or so to visit with my friend tomorrow. We haven't seen each other or talked for quite a while. I was so pleased when she called out of the blue the other day. Tomorrow we will meet at Starbucks. She is bringing her 9 y/o son with her. I enjoy visiting with him too, he is quite the character. I have known him since he was two.
I am determined to pull the rest of that dang rug up, then experiment with different solutions to see what gets the adhesive off the floor the easiest and best way. I'm going to try to get my tall ladder into the garage so it can dry off. I can use that to pick the stars off the ceiling. (that just sounds funny, doesn't it?) Sounds like a country song. I'll pick the stars off the ceiling for you dear...cause for you the ceiling should be clear... okay, I won't quit my day job.
I feel antsy for some reason tonight. I wish I could figure it out. I have felt this way since I got home. It's not the message from my daughter cause I didn't read that until about 8 tonight. I wish I knew. I should try to get some sleep, big plans ahead of me, I need to start off on the right foot. I let ya know my progress tomorrow!
