Okay, it needs to stop raining. Enough. We’ve had about 26 rainy days out of 30. Happily, it did not rain Hallowe’en night so fun was had by all. Boo was dressed as a combination Batman, Optimum Prime and Captain America. He was great in the haunted house, protected me with his shield. He was lagging near the end a bit, so it’s no surprise he’s sick tonight. I may have to keep him home tomorrow, but we’ll see how he’s doing. A friend of mine had her 22 year marriage implode and it’s just heartbreaking. I think she’ll be fine but sadly she’s not the first woman I know that was caught off guard and I’m doing my best to support her without actually telling her what to do. I’m trying like hell to be neutral because as soon as you bring that stuff home, well, everyone has an opinion, don’t they and you tend to take sides consciously or unconsciously. And frankly, it’s scary cause it’s one of those couples where you didn’t expect it. I mean, how you can profess your love for your wife 6 months ago and now it’s done? Oh, yeah, you know where my mind went. I remember that feeling when you discover that unconditional love you really believed you had wasn’t so unconditional, after all.
And guess who’s 15 year wedding anniversary is coming up next week? Yup,and though I would love a romantic getaway being spoiled rotten, that’s not going to happen. In fact, the idea of even going out for dinner is slipping away cause Boo is not feeling well which means once my tired husband comes home from moving his parents (who had not anticipated moving this soon and therefore his mother won’t be able to come over to babysit), there is no way he’s going to want to go out. He wouldn’t trust a sitter and it wouldn’t be fun for either of us anyway. So I’m preparing myself that it will be postponed. I’m pretty sure he didn’t really plan anything special anyway. The dog needs dental surgery and the estimate is sky high. See? This rain is making me negative. Where’s my Vitamin D?
In the meantime, my mind is on Boo’s life book and it’s just about done, except for one photo of course and that photo was a gift and our printer is broken so I can’t scan it now. Of course. Working on Plan B.
While I was on my way to visit my acting teacher who is in hospital with a broken ankle for almost 3 weeks (it’s complicated), I get a call that my friend’s daughter is in hospital (long story) and in the end, I could only chant with her for 15 minutes before I left to pick up my son from school.
Okay, I gotta get to bed. I ate too many Rocket candies (who brought them in the house???) and I’m on my period (my god, go away!!!) and I need to just let it all goooooo.
