Tonight I was sitting at karaoke, once again flipping through a collection of songs I don't know, and I just wasn't feeling it. So, half-way through my drink, I just handed it to Dereck and said, "I'm going home."
In a bit of a funk, and not just because of my friend with breast cancer. I just haven't had any time in my house lately. I was out of town, then out of town more, right back into the work week, baseball, softball, neighborhood meetings, karaoke, then more out of town camping, then back to work, then wading pool, neighborhood chatting, then putting kids to bed, then back at karaoke. And I just didn't want to be there.
So, now I am in my messy house (which my awesome babysitter Erin, sensing my overwhelmed-ness has vowed to clean with the kids tomorrow) and I feel better, but not better.
There is nothing wrong. I'm just feeling a little maligned tonight. Just need some sittin' time.
I put a bunch of beautiful new towels into my shopping cart at JC Penney, and then didn't buy them.
I am noticing my summer salary reduction a bit-- I have money in savings which I don't want to dip into, rather like having it there, but the child support check isn't here yet, and there is the babysitter to pay, the kids needed new shoes, two of them need haircuts, plus we went to Spiderman 2 last night (which was awesome! I loved it!) (more time not at home, though). There were girls behind us who weren't feeling the Spiderman love, though, and started snickering during points that Dereck and I didn't appreciate, so I almost feel like I need to see it again just not to have those moments ruined.
I just watched the preview. Okay, I feel better now. I have also watched the preview for Before Sunset. Sorry to say, I don't think it's going to measure up to Before Sunrise. I am afraid I will be disappointed, but I know I will watch it anyway.
Doesn't Coffee and Cigarettes just look delicious?
Ah well, you get the idea.
Now it's time to go see what's on HBO!
