Saturday off

Leave a comment

Now I do actually get all Saturdays off lately.  But today seems to be a little off for me still.  I’m sure it’s a mood shift.

I was supposed to help my daughter move some stuff today but the weather was too difficult.  I would like to hear from her that we are doing this tomorrow but she isn’t answering me.  Some kind of communication would be appreciated.

I think I am harsh today.  I think I’m teasing, but someone feels picked on.  I think I’m encouraging but the other person feels pushed.  Usually I am more gentle than that.  Now it could be the other person having a sensitive day, but when it happens more than once you have to look for the common denominator, which is me.  So it must be me today.  Tomorrow it will be someone else’s turn.

I did some vacuuming today.  My roommate asked me to do it.  I really don’t like the vacuum, the sound it makes bothers me.  It’s like finger nails on a chalkboard for me.  I keep hoping that at some point in life I will do some housework and feel good about it, but mostly I don’t care.  I do it because it’s necessary or expected.  Someday maybe I will grow up and feel differently.  Maybe.

It’s been a rainy day today.  Rain is usually nice and it’s certainly necessary when it’s been so dry this year.  It’s even been rather warm so it’s not dreary.  Still, sun would be nice.  I miss brightness.

I have been writing for the last few days.  I am out of stamps and address labels.  I have ordered both so it’s a waiting game at this point.

I still have not received my first package from Bobcat in a Box.  It just renewed for this month.  I get that cool items at low prices come from far away.  In a world that is so connected, it’s funny that some things are a fair distance off in time.  I can order a juice cleanse from a local business and get it delivered the same day.  Ordering from China, well, that takes a while.

I also have not heard from Zine-O-Matic.  I understand that to be a monthly project.  It’s the end of the month so I’m hopeful of getting a package soon.

I did hear from the magazine I subscribed to that they shipped my first issue.

Goodness I ordered a LOT of stuff online when I was manic.  At least letters are cheap!

I like sci-fi movies, and I noticed that I like the noir ones best. They are almost universally set in a sort of post-apocalyptic dystopia. I later realized, I find them comforting and familiar, probably because I live there, at least in my inner life. Perhaps things are not as bleak as they seem, or perhaps I am simply learning to keep a better attitude. This is the chronicle of my adventures. May you find something valuable here.
