Freezing Friday

I am very happy it is Friday! The week actually went by fast since I came back to work on Tuesday.  It does feel good to be back at work. When I was laid up with the pinched nerve I had a lot of time to think. Too much time really. One of the lines in Desiderata (poem) says: Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. I totally agree! Now that I am back in the swing more it is helping distract me and I don't feel so anxious.  Even though I am still sad about Dave being gone there is also part of me that is glad I am alone. I need to stand up tall and proud ON MY OWN!

The temps have been below freezing at night this last week and there have been frost warnings and Spare The Air days all week. Long time readers may remember HG, who is a friend of ours that is homeless. Well, he is working now but still does not have a place to live and sleeps in his car. Sucker Katie, felt bad for him and let him stay at my apt. this week. He is going to pay me $100. The thing is, his back is hurting (sciatica) and he has been sleeping in my bed instead of on the futon. It freaked me out so much the other night, I had a panic attack. I told him and he said he would sleep on the floor but then I got weak and let him back on the bed at the last minute. I am going to tell him tonight that I can't do it anymore.

Then, this morning, when I went out to the carport, another acquaintance of ours was sitting in front of my car and he was hitting me up for money!!! WTH!!! I told him that I resented he was there, that he had NO IDEA what has been going on with me and how screwed up it is that we have not seen him in 6 months and then the first time I see him he hits me up for money. I gave him the $3 I had in my purse and told him to leave and not come back.  I am a compassionate person and like to share but come on! I think they know if they give me their sob story I will fall for it. I feel like I am a beacon for the troubled souls. I made a big step with having Dave move and want to proceed with my life without the freeloaders!

On a more positive note, when I was getting dressed this morning, I was able to find and fit into a blouse that I forgot I had and it looks fantastic. That was the highlight of my morning! I think I got it at Nordstrom Rack last year some time. I have been having fun putting different outfits together and accessorizing.

Nothing too exciting planned for the weekend. I want to watch The Help which I got on Amazon.  I need to get some exercise and will most likely Wii or swim.  I need to see my mom at some point too. Until next time...


  1. I think old clothes that suddenly fit again is like Christmas morning! :-) Congrats on that!

    And you don't have to be taken in by every sob story. Good for you for standing up for yourself!


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
