Everyone's a Little Bit Racist

I took a friend and co-worker home from work today, and we stopped at Chipotle to pick up some dinner.

After we got back in the car, she noted how everyone was staring at us while we were waiting for our food.  It took me a minute to realize it was literally just because we were friends.  A black person and a white person.

I feel like I was a character in Hairspray.  The fact that we are not the same color should not even remotely make an impact.  This is why I hate people.

On an unrelated note, my team didn't place in the contest.

Project Work

Today was the day to finish up the project work.  It was nice getting some time away from work to do it, but I hate having people ask me how to do something creative.  I think they assume I had some grand master plan for it, but really all I did was ask if they wanted to participate.

(Don't) Be Our Guest

Around 10 AM I got a text from Hubby's friends that they were on their way, but taking many breaks before they got here, so it would be late.  I then promptly forgot about it until my poor sister started texting me madly asking where the air mattress and the pump was because they had shown up and sort of demanded she get that ready for them.   I was busy at work and could only give obvious answers like "in the closet" and "is the pump charged?" while she helped them out.  I came home and had to leave again to buy a new $20.00 pump for the mattress as the old one hadn't worked.

I'm done with having guests.

The Winter Solider and the Blood Moon

I woke up to a text message that my friend's/co-worker's dad had died. I still don't know what to say to people when it comes to death. It's so very personal. I told him I was here for anything he needed. 

I pulled the weeds in the yard today, and then hubby and I went to lunch and to the movies. We saw "Captain America: The Winter Solider." It was really good, and the subject matter was pretty scary in that it was possible. 

When we were walking out a lady was saying how "confusing" the plot was, but the action was fun. I was so embarrassed to be an American in that moment. A majority of us are so stupid it hurts. 

Seeing the Blood Moon was so awesome though. Hubby brought out my dad's binoculars, and it was beautiful. I feel as if my dad was really with me today, helping me through the bad moments to see how awesome the rest of the universe is.

Spring Cleaning

Hubby let me know last night that his friends were coming into town on Tuesday and Thursday and staying with us.  So today consisted entirely of cleaning.  I never ended up taking a shower or doing anything but changing my underwear and putting on some shoes.  I stayed in my PJ's all day to clean.

I got a lot more done than I thought I was going to, but didn't get as much as I really had wanted to get to.  Being fatigued all the time is...well, exhausting.  It would have been nice to get the whole house clean, but I don't know that having that happen is humanly possible.

I had a full day at work of meeting and assisting with teaching classes, so I was starving by the time I got off work.

I picked up my sister and her crutches and we went to a Mexican place that has an amazing seafood relleno. I ended up paying a lot for dinner, but my sister got me a bath bomb from Lush after dinner that was worth it.  I really needed a margarita and food in me, and it was the perfect way to end my super drama-filled week.

When we got home it wasn't that late, so I went upstairs to put on some PJs and then I was going to go back downstairs and check out what was on the DVR.  I never made it back downstairs.  As soon as I sat on the bed to put my PJs on, I was almost completely fast asleep.  I haven't made it to midnight all week, and usually I'm up until 2 AM.  I need to shake this thing and get back to normal.

Dick Move

Due to my thought process yesterday, I decided it would be a good idea to just cut off everything with J.  I unfriended her and said to myself "It's done and over.  I hope she gets the help she needs."

Little did I know that she would be taking it so harshly or even paying that much attention.  She moped like a sullen teenager all day today and then actually pulled a severely dick move on me.  I told my friend and co-worker S about it, and she said it was a huge dick move and actually said she wanted to tell her to "Tuck in her Petty" which I'm pretty sure is referencing this type of post.  Either way I agree, it's getting to the point where it is childish and I really wish she would just get fired already.  I was really counting on this new position to come through so I wouldn't have to worry about it.  I've just got to take a deep breath and try and make it through for awhile.
