Routine Ramblings of an Occasionally Interesting Housewife

Time is falling down on the job again
I've been doing a pretty decent job of getting 8 hours a night, but I'm in the sleepy part of my cycle, where I'd like 10 or 12. But getting enough sleep means I haven't been doing much of anything else.

Friday, I didn't hear Flar tell me there was a check to deposit, and he left it on the kitchen table. By the time I was in the kitchen, I didn't have time to deposit a check AND get to my review on time. So I left it for him to deposit. The other bit I didn't hear him tell me was about him driving to Cincy after his meeting with Source, so of course HE couldn't deposit it either. Two overdraft fees later, I get a nasty note from Flar.

I'm trying to figure out the least nasty way to respond to the note that actually addressing its complete useless inappropriateness. My first reaction: "roommates don't have nasty note privileges" seems too nasty and therefore self-convicting. Whatever.

I haven't done my bible study this week. I'm about to leave for church and wait quietly in the discussion room, missing out on hymn time. I'll either get some study time in, or at least be in a calmer place to listen to others.

The house is a mess, and I need to pick up some groceries, start in on laundry again, clean the kitchen table, update Quicken, tackle two very tough writing assignments and make at least one phone call I've been avoiding.

I'm still trying to figure out how a 3 hour drive (one direction) took 11 hours out of my day, but I did enjoy getting to ride in Candy and have dinner with Knight and Ro.

Wow. Being down makes me self-centered enough to write what looks horrible, without even blinking. The phone call is about insurance. I've another phone call I'm not avoiding, but I've been trying to find enough quality phone time to actually make. Sigh.

/me hugs myself.

In my opinion, you are smart to take a breath before responding to the note. One has to wonder why he would take a tone w/you....is he being a harda** or what?

Flar tends to take a "blame" attitude towards things going wrong with our finances. If I'm late paying bills, we get socked with late fees, and sometimes more dire icky credit thingies. If money from clients is coming in late, I'm to blame for not depositing a check written on the last possible day it needs to go into the account. Oh, and since I'm scheduling payments ahead with Checkfree to avoid late fees, I'm to blame for their being so many "automatic" payments.


We really need to hit at least Baby Step one to keep this kind of thing from happening.

*hug* I think you are showing how much progress you've made by taking time to respond to the nasty note. But, I do agree that the nasty note was poor behavior and should be adressed. If you are required to be careful with your reactions, then he needs to do the same. Just because he hasn't been diagnosed with mental issues does not excuse poor behavior.

Thank you. A much better way of expressing what I was feeling...

Re: 11 hours
I think you got to our house about half an hour or so before we actually left. Then it was a 3 hour drive each way (total: 6-1/2); about 1-1/2 hours for dinner (total: 8 hrs); about 1-1/2 hours at the dealership (between waiting for the car, taking a drive, looking it over and figuring out the seats, filling out the paperwork, et al)(total: 9-1/2).

That's the best I can figure it. :)

I just don't know why I had it in my head that it would be reasonable to go grocery shopping when we got back. I needed gas, so I did fill up my car (more than 18 gallons, which is spec for the tank) and buy bread at the BP on the way home.

Go go gadget convenience store.

And then the price dropped 4¢ today. I woulda been stranded somewhere if I'd waited, but still!


We still on for lunch tomorrow, Java Monkey, noon?

*grin* you saved me a phone call.

Java Monkey at noon. Remind me where that is?

Belay that. Ooooh, look a reply I hadn't read. Sloppy email habits. I've got the directions.

See you tomorrow. :)

Pull into Beaumont Center (heading out Harrodsburg Rd, it is on the right, just outside of New Circle), and take the first left (there is a stop light), heading towards the library.

Take your first right into the little mini-strip-mall thing, and turn immediately right into the parking lot. Java Monkey is in the middle.

hee hee. I'll see you tomorrow.
