Hi! It’s me again. Sorry about all the long breaks. Blame it on the mobster. I spend all my free time talking to him. No time for blogging.
So what have I been up to, you may be wondering? Just working and smiling at my good fortune. I do have a few tidbits to share with everyone.
#1- I am dreaming again. Like, the nighttime, what happens when you sleep, dreaming. Not the planning for the future dreaming. For the longest time I couldn’t remember having any dreams. I don’t know if I was just so physically tired they didn’t register with me or what. But I’m dreaming again. I still can’t remember them but I know I’m having them.
#2- I never realized how much my emotions impacted my daughter. My mom was the one who took Rock Star back to our former state. During their travel time Rock Star told her that she was much happier now that I was finally happy.
That makes me feel so sad. I thought I was keeping it from them. I thought I was a better actress. I mean, there’s only so much you can do. Working two jobs, getting up at 3:20 in the morning, never having any time for your kids and having no social life takes a toll on a person.
But she’s happy now because I’m happy. What a sweet kid.
She also told my mom she has no plans to invite her dad to her graduation and that she doesn’t want him there.
#3- Rock Star had a dream of her own that she shared with us the other day. She said she dreamed that Harley showed up at one of her football games to watch her cheer. How did that go, you may be wondering? Not well. Not well at all. In her dreams she beat the shit out of Harley.
#4- I put my notice in at Target. No more 3:30 wake up calls for this gal! At least not for a while. I may end up having to go back but for a little while I’m going to have a break.
I was actually quite nervous about it because I haven’t had to resign from a job since 2000. When I gave them my notice they asked me what they could do to keep me and asked about me working fewer hours. That made me feel good. Apparently I’m a valued worker. I told them I would think about it but decided to go ahead and make a clean break. My last day isn’t until August but I have a full six days off before going back and working my last three days. I’m so excited I can hardly stand it!
#5- My lawyer continues to crack me up. Hey, at $250/hour she had better be funny! I got another check for $555.55 so I let her know and also filled her in on what 55555 is supposed to mean. I did tell her it was possible that it was unrelated. She wrote back: Well, there’s the explanation. What a jerk!
Makes me laugh every time she drops the professional demeanor and lets loose with what she really thinks about him. She also added that it was time to file for the show cause.
Along similar lines I finally deposited the three checks he’s sent me. The person who did the actual transaction is a co-worker and she noted the names on the check. She asked me how I felt about seeing Harley’s name on the top of the check and made some comment about it.
You know, so much shit has been done in the name of their very special love that I just don’t notice it anymore. It was, however, nice to be validated when someone else looks at it and says, “This crap is fucked up!” Yes, they are a classy couple.
That is my short update. Tell me how you’re doing!
