Getting Life in Order

Well the Sears appliance repairman just left with a nice fat check from me. Parts are ordered and hopefully will arrive and be installed by the end of the week. Just as I thought, the dryer motor is dying. Yes, I did get laundry done this weekend. Luckily the laundromat is only 6 blocks away and A was right about one thing-she did have enough quarters. :))

All I can say is that things are just "off" in this household. My bad mood/irritation/pissed-off state persisted through Saturday. The thing is, it wasn't really the dryer that set things off. We've both just been "not-right" with each other the last few weeks; you know snappy and moody and intolerant. The thing is when you ask what's wrong, it's not one thing you can really put your finger on. I know for me, A may say something in a completely innocent way and I take it personally. By Sunday we had both calmed down and become reasonable enough to have a real conversation with each other. Bonus, nothing negative between us all day Sunday. 

Between all the crap I can say we did have a pretty nice and productive weekend. After sleeping on Betty's bed during my petsitting gig, I had completely fallen in love with the mattress, so last weekend I took A shopping. We were able to agree on one and it was delivered Friday evening. Can I say absolute heaven!  OMG, I could barely make it out of bed I was so comfy all weekend. I may have to consider moving the computer, TV and appliances in the bedroom so I don't have to get out of bed again. 

We arranged furniture, got our guest room in order, finished up the last of the fall yard work and finally (and with great sadness) put the RV in storage. The cold north wind was blowing and we had snow flurries while driving home. I shouldn't really complain about that though...just be thankful I'm not living on the east coast.
Happy Monday...and Happy Halloween!

Ah yes, the ol I hate everything you do, the way you sleep, how you talk and you drive me crazy moments in a relationship. LOL! Totally normal, though it feels pretty shitty to go through it.

It does pass.

Isn't getting a new bed the best thing EVER!?!

Dying is easy, relationships are hard. Laugh.

The new bed sounds great. Beddy is my favorite place in the WHOLE ENTIRE world.

I love you and A.

Ms. Moon said...

Hell, with relationships sometimes the tide is in and sometimes it's out and there just isn't much you can do but be sweet and wait for the moon to change, the wind to shift.
Love to you both.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Ms. Moon is so right, as usual. Well said, Mary.

Oh boy, it is dangerous to get a new comfy bed right before winter, you will never want to get out!!
I know what you mean about being "just off" sometimes thats all it really is. Im glad it is over though :)

Jess-Haha! You forgot to add I hate the way you breathe and chew. :D

SB-If you were here, we would let you snuggle in too...but you may have to fight off the old cat Stink for a spot. :)

Ms. Moon-I know you are absolutely right. I wonder what the astrologer would say?

Crystal-I have a feeling I'm going to be late for work a lot more, especially when the cold sets in.

I am so jealous of your new mattress. Ours is 12 or 13 years old it's time to go. The only thing that's holding me back is that I'm cheap. But really, I do know the importance of them.
Happy Slumbering! And perhaps all that sleep will put you in a better mood.
