Ups and Downs

There is so much going on these days with not just me but my children and friends. After 68 days I finally got to see the bodyguard. It wasn’t a date, just a gathering with some mutual friends. It felt so good just to be in his presence. I think our patio parties are going to be a good thing for all of us. There is one person that I don’t care for in our group. I don’t like negativity and I damn sure don’t like anyone who puts down someone I love so dearly. I surprised myself with my response to her. I usually can ignore most anything but she caught me off guard. She said something very ugly about someone I love with all my heart and I told her to get out of my face. That is pretty harsh coming from my mouth. She later told the dancing queen that she thought she pissed me off and she did.

I think I’m finally starting to get back to my old self. The one thing I have to work on is being alone. I’m spending way too much time out when I should be home working on my house. I looked at my bed this morning and it’s pathetic. I would take a picture and post it but it’s too embarrassing. I have a king size bed and because it seems so empty now, I have resorted to piling pillows up and unfolded laundry on one side of the bed. When I go to sleep, I find myself rolling over against the pillows. If those pillows grow arms I’m going to freak. Ha! I really have to clean off that bed.

Queenie has found her wedding gown and I bought it for her. It breaks my heart that her father, who should be buying her gown and certainly is financially capable, didn’t do this. Queenie will be moving back to Huntsville in the next month and moving in with me, while The Officer is in Officer training school. I will be happy to have her back in my house for 4 months. It will be an adjustment but one well worth making.

G. I. Joe graduated from High school last month and so far, he has excelled at doing NOTHING! This is really getting on my nerves. I’m giving him 1 month to “relax” and then I’m going into full Mama Mode. Get a job, go to college. I have probably babied him too much, but he was my baby. It’s hard letting go but I know that I have to make him grow up and learn to do things on his own…like his laundry.

My Soul Sister got married. I’m very happy for her. I wish them the best. It does present some problems with me though. New Hubby doesn’t drink very often and Soul Sister and I like to have wine and talk over the world’s problems. I find it upsetting that she keeps wine in my refrigerator and a toothbrush at my house. Bonefish is not the same without her.

I received a notification from American Airline that our flight time has changed by a few minutes. The tickets are in my name and the bodyguard. He has already said that he doesn’t want to go and I can’t change names on the ticket. I had asked that if he really doesn’t want to go, to cancel his flight and pay the $150.00 and use it for something else. I don’t want to bring it up to him but I guess I will have to, because I need to make sure he doesn’t cancel using the ticket number because it’s under both our names. Now, I am stuck trying to find someone who can pay their own airfare, or I will have to pay it for them. I will probably ask the dancing queen to go with me. I really wish the bodyguard would go but I can’t make him.
