Well today started out pretty good. No wonder... I woke up at almost noon. What could be bad about THAT?? Got up, got dressed and spent the entire day at home. Which was also good since I had all kinds of papers to sort through with the hopes of ditching 3/4 of them. Mission pretty much accomplished on that front.
I also had to tailor the shoulders of a new dress I got, but unfortunately
the finished work turned out to be a dud. Bingo... I had to rip the seam apart
and decided: the hell with it. I'll wear it as is. THAT WAS EASY.
Got lots of phone calls and chit chatted for a bit before I went on my two
searches. WHERE THE HELL IS MY WILL, ANYWAY?? You can't beLIEVE how I tore apart
the drawers, cabinets and file folders. It's totally not here. I did find the
codicil of the will however, which was done about 10 months ago, I bet.
Anyway... called Evan's office and lo and behold... the original is in his
office safe! Finding that out however, didn't do much to calm my pounding heart
so boom. Downed half an Ativan.
Then I began my next search... the hunt for my new pair of Issac Mizrahi
jeans that I was in the midst of tailoring a while ago and quickly put away
somewhere when company was coming. WHERE THE HELL DID I PUT THEM? I still have
no clue in spite of my looking through every closet in the house. They've been
missing for about a month now. Man... for someone as organized as I am, I can
find nothing around this place.
I then toyed with the idea of taking a nap, but figured that can't be good
for someone who woke up at noon. So... I went through all the papers I wanted to
file away and yippee. Found my AFLAC POLICY which I had not seen in two years,
I'll bet. I also found the WARRANTY POLICY for my car which I think is only good
for another two years at most. Ooops.
Then I tried to find something decent to watch on TV but as usual, found
nothing. Totally boring shit although I did spend about 15 minutes of channel
surfing. Evan called me back and I got sick to my stomach again hearing how his
young daughter is going through all kinds treatments for her leukemia and who
will soon have to head over to Duke University for a bone marrow transplant.
Talk about heart breaking.
To ease my concern for her, I decided to have a fantastic dinner... a huge
bowl of ice cream with chocolate syrup on top. It definitely eased my broken
heart to some degree. It also did a number on my caloric intake.
Was pretty happy when my son called. Unlike ME, he was able to get Sirrius Radio to renew my subscription at half the price they quoted me. I had called them twice in the last two weeks, but they would give me no such fantastic pricing. Which naturally is when I got my kid to take over since I've long ago figured out that it is indeed a man's world out there. Sorry Gloria Steinem but it is what it is.
I considered going over to my next door neighbor's house but was afraid her
husband my be there. He's a pilot and has been out of town on his new schedule
and it's been about 3 weeks since he was home. I love going there though,
because their baby will soon be about a year old even though the wife is already
making plans with her attorney to leave the husband after January, taking the
baby with her, to live at her parents' house in a different state. Thus... I'm
sort of expecting a nuclear war to go down when the hubby returns one day to
find wife and kid kaput. Now THERE'S a soap opera waiting to happen.
I did get a kick out of George Zimmerman being in front of a judge once
again. I love watching his misery piling on over and over and over. Geez... this
guy had GOT to be the biggest joke of all time. For someone who wanted to be a
part of law enforcement, he's involved in the law alright. Just on the
wrong side of it. What an idiot.
So that was pretty much my day, Dear Diary of mine. I guess I better go wind
down now so I can shower and get ready for bed since tomorrow Susan, Claudia and
I will head over to Old Navy and then grab some lunch. Best part of tomorrow
will be that Teresa will be here when I wake up. YAY. Better yet.. NEXT
Wednesday I'll wake up to go pick up my kid from the airport! Have already got
my Manly List of Things To Do pretty much completed. Of course I just hope I'll be able to find
