I am leaving Friday to go visit my Aunt, who is also my best friend, up in Spokane, WA. There is an event called Bloomsday, and we are going on a 7 mile walk.
J will get to hang out with the kids. Don't know how I will stand to be away from the kiddos, and as much as I will miss J, the break is definetly needed as he is about to die a mysterious death.

First of all, he wanted the car as much IF not more than I did. He didn't want to give up his 4Runner and by me having a nice car, he still gets to drive it.
Secondly, J and I have seperate bank accounts. I pay 1/2 the bills and he pays 1/2 the bills. By having his Mom's car that was completely paid off, he was going to take over more of the bills to help me out since I am unemployed. BUT- with the new car, he will just resume the car payment. (We were still paying the car payment on the green one up until we sold it last month, so there has only been one month without payment.)
So, in summary
*Yes, J picked out the car and is making the payments.
*The new car payment is $30 more than the green one, and since I pay my insurance it will go up also.
*If you look at the money he puts in bills and the money I put in bills they even out.
Am I happy I have a new car? Tremendously. BUT- people, including J, need to stop acting like J "bought me a new car."

Hmmm... more to follow.
So, I woke up at 1:00 and J was still watching tv, so then I could not fall back asleep. Fun.
Anyway, so I had a 01 Accord Coupe with 79k miles on it. When we moved J's Mom into assisted living, she gave us her 03 Sedan that was paid off with 4,500 miles on it. Yep- you read it correctly, 4,500. So we sold the 01. The 03 is incredibly basic, and it was hard going from a car that was fully loaded to one completely basic. I may be spoiled, but when you have a 10 and a 12 year old you need atleast automatic locks, or never keep anything in your car worth stealing.
So, J went with his friend to buy a car when he ran into my new car. We sold the silver car and I get to pick up the above today. I have not even seen it,but I trust J.

People that walk around like they have never done anything wrong and that they are better than you.
I am sure I will get in trouble for this, but at this point, I don't care.
My example - J and I went out on St Patricks Day and ended up drinking too much. Shocker- that happens on St. Patricks Day. That was the only time we have ever been out with his friend, we'll call him Adnan. Let me say, from the sound of it you would think we were up dancing on tables stripping. But no, our mistake was that we drove home. Yes, incredibly stupid, it's not like it happens all the time.
So now it rolls around to Adnan's birthday party, and he actually writes to J telling him, and I will quote a couple of lines:
*K no getting drunk as shit around my friends though! Gotta behave - no st patricks day rerun! ( No shit? It's a birthday party, not a national drinking holiday)
*We can't behave like that at this place that's all I am saying. Yes it was a tad embarrasing but no I didnt care at the end of the night. Just saying that getting hammered there is not gonna be part of the agenda. I want you to make a good impression with my friends since most have never met you (Again, letting us know this is an upscale establishment, not one we are used to going to. )
*You two just get out of control when you drink that much and I dont want a scene to occur (Oh really, because you have been around us drunk how many times- oh ya- once)
So, Adnan can't figure out what is wrong, and actually said that he may not have meant it that way, 10 people can read a sentence and not take it that way. Really, I am sure 10 people can read this sentence and come up with the fact that you think your shit smells better than everyone else.
To quote my friend after telling her the story: "Nope, I totally agree w/you. That was really rude and uncalled for. I'd be completely offended. The whole "I want you to impress my friends" thing just sounds like he was treating Jason like he's the redheaded stepchild being brought out of the closet around fancy company. WTF??"
So, J was still wanting to go, and I told him go ahead, but I have no interest. I say the dumbest random stuff even when I am sober and am not going to have to double check everything I say the whole night so that I don't embarass Adnan. I am sure he will have a much better birthday party without the "town drunks" there.

So, new rule-drinking on weekends only, and keeping it light.
Today the kids are off school and for some godawful reason I am watching Pokemon. I am about ready to declare Jihad on the tv set.

When you make a decision that will help you to better yourself, and you ask someone to support you, yet they are too concerned that this decision will affect their life in a negative way so they don't back you up.
Case in point. I have stopped drinking for the week. I am fine with it, I miss drinking wine when I take a bath, but other than that all is good. HOWEVER - The person who is supposed to be my best friend keeps bringing up alcohol ALL the time. "Do you mind if I have a beer? I am going to have a drink, OK? I don't know what to do, I am bored, let's go to the bar, oh wait, that's right, you can't." CORRECTION- I CAN, I just choose NOT too. THEN- has the nerve to invite me to the bar with him just to hang out.
Now, is drinking really so important that you would rather tamper with what I have set out to do to feel better about myself just so YOU can have some fucking entertainment? It's just pathetic and pisses me off. So it leaves me with going to bed early every night and reading so I can be by myself and not get more and more pissed off.

I need to lose this extra damn 15 pounds. I need to weight what I weighed for 5 years, and what my drivers license says. I don't want it to lie and I will be damned if I go in and change it.
So I am doing my squats and what should happen? My fucking knee goes out. WHY? I try to do everything right and it backfires... I should just give up now.
My 2 favorite things, wine and martinis are banned for 6 more days. I am tired of diet and exercise not doing a lot to help, and I am thinking it is my nightly "friends" that are doing it to me. So I have decided to test it for week with no alcohol, with exercise and a "sensible diet".
The last few days have been crazy with sick kids, sick me, and sick of cleaning.

We have an extra refrigerator/freezer in the garage, but the handles were on the right, and when I park in front of it, it is very hard to access when my car is in the garage.
So, after waiting for months and months of my husband to switch the doors around so it can be easily accessed, I did it myself. It took a little over an hour, since when I put it back together I put the freezer part on first, although the refrigerator part was supposed to go on first so I had to undo some things.
I am quite proud of my accomplishment!
