K & I broke up tonight. It wasn't a fight or anything melodramatic; he's moving back to California because he can't find a job here, and neither of us are interested in a long distance relationship. I've always known this was a possibility when he got his MBA, which he finishes up next week, and in the last month or so it's looked more and more likely, so it's not a shock. It still sucks, and I'm still sad about it, but I'm not devastated. He did say the hardest part about making the decision was knowing it meant we'd break up, so that's something to hold onto, I guess. He's a good guy, and I hope he finds happiness. And I hope I do too.

except not really. It hasn't been horrible, just not good. I'm tired, and my house is dirty, and I'm overwhelmed. It's the kind of day where I didn't want to get out of bed, so I didn't - yay laptop! - where my I had to drag myself to tennis, where I forgot to buy the fucking milk at the store, and they were out of the ice cream I wanted, and the kind I got instead was bad, and then it melted and I dripped it on the damned carpet. That kind of day. I had planned to come on here today and post about my mom, and about how great K has been through this whole week, but then he said something today that made me sad and I can't see the good right now. I know it's just that I'm overtired from the trip and the stress and whatnot. I know it'll be better tomorrow, and maybe I'll make those posts then. Right now? I'm going to go curl up and go to bed.

No, I haven't given up on this. I will complete it! Even though I've spread it out over 3 months now.

Day 26: Your week, in great detail

Monday, March 1:
Woke up feeling not so great, with a bad headache. Worked all day, nothing too exciting. Then I skipped tennis practice since I was feeling not so good. I ran over to Michaels to buy paper for my photo album, and then went grocery shopping. I was going to get myself dinner at Moe's, but I missed their operating hours by about ten minutes. Came home, fixed myself dinner, worked on my photo album.

Tuesday, March 2:
Woke up feeling feverish and clammy. I took my temperature, and it was at 99. I was actually relieved, because that explains why I'd been in such a bad mood; I'm always rage-y when I'm getting sick. Finished up work early, so I worked on my photo album. Made myself some soup.

Wednesday, March 3:
Still tired, but feeling better. Worked - did some support call work, held my two training sessions for the week. Found out that Bob Bryar really has left MCR, very sad. Worked captions for my photo album. Stayed up far too late faffing about on the internet, re-tagging old journal entries.

Thursday, March 4:
Got up and ran to my physical therapy appointment for my carpal tunnel. Last appointment, yay! Grabbed lunch from Willy's, and came home. Worked on support calls all afternoon. Completed the embellishments on the photo album. Was safety person for my friend Katherine for her first eHarmony date; she was not kidnapped, yay!

Friday, March 5:
Worked on support calls in the morning; annoyingly I have 5 going right now (this is not my actual job, just helping out another department) which are basically resolved but am waiting to hear back from the client to confirm that what I've told them actually worked. Then did my actual job in the afternoon, four hours of conference calls, an hour and a half of paperwork. Took a super quick shower, and ran to tennis drills. Went out to dinner afterward with Katherine, our regular Tennis and Tequila outing at a local Mexican place. Came home after and put the photo album together, finished, yay!

Saturday, March 6:
I took a day for myself. Slept in til noon, didn't really get up at that point. Worked on tagging old LJ entries, read a blog by a woman who gave up her career to move to Hong Kong with her boyfriend, did laundry, cuddled cat. K came down after work, and we went over to my friends' house for an awesome vegetarian dinner (fake chicken cordon bleu, rudabega (sp?), asparagus, and homemade rolls, with pears and caramel ice cream for dessert, plus yummy lemonade cocktails!) and a movie - Girls Will Be Girls - which should totally be a cult classic, it's hilarious. Hint: none of the girls are actually girls. Came home really late.

Sunday, March 7:
K got up to leave for his parents' house in Florida for spring break early. After he left, I went back to bed until noon. Still tired, but not so hungover as I probably should have been (yummy cocktails were yummy) thanks to copious amounts of water ingested throughout the night. Personal computer wouldn't start; took battery out, started up. Had to restore, screen is not working right (flickers, goes dark, etc). Backed up files in case of premature death; will probably take it in to Best Buy sometime this week. Ran to play tennis, sort of won - I won the first set 7-6, and then half way through the second set, when the score was 3-3, my opponent forfeited due to fatigue (she has had a cold this week.) I am happy to have the points, but it was a bit of a let down. One of the girls on my team was playing a match at the same time, so I stuck around to watch the end of her match, and then we went to dinner. I came home, and have planted myself on the couch, and that pretty much brings us up to date.

Is Mercury in retrograde or something? I have been in a foul mood all weekend, and not a much better one for most of last week. I'm not sleeping well - in a weird way, where I'm getting plenty of sleep, but I'm dreaming almost constantly and I wake up exhausted. Work's going okay, but everything else just feels off. I get mad at myself for not accomplishing anything when I'm not really being any more lazy than normal, I get mad at K for, ok for valid stuff, but stuff I'd normally let slide. My rage just feels hair trigger, and I'm more teary than normal. I wonder if this is some sort of month-long PMS brought on by my birth control injections, or just that February always sucks balls, or what.

I'm not an angry person, and I hate feeling this way. I hope whatever it is passes soon.

Oh, I am worn OUT. I played two hours of tennis tonight (a match, and then practice on top of that), and combined with yesterday's 3 mile trek and a single's tennis match, I am feeling the aches and pain. But it was fun, and I won my singles match! I was expecting to get killed because I haven't played singles in forever.

Valentine's Day weekend was nice - I got a box of candy for the first time ever that was not from a friend or relative, so that's exciting :D We weren't really celebrating since we're going out of town next weekend. We saw Youth in Revolt (which was enjoyable) on Saturday and hung out with friends on Sunday. Good weekend :D

And because I am going to finish this meme:

Day 20: A hobby of yours

I scrapbook. I am a scrapbooker. I think it sort of has a stigma against it, like only old or weird people do it, but I love it. I started for a couple of reasons. My mom has always just kept photos in boxes (until last year when I helped her put them in books), and it's a jumble of what year is this and who's in that photo, and it drove me crazy. Also, as we age, memory is not a strong point of my family. So someday when I've lost my memory, I look forward to thumbing through these books and wondering who the pretty girl who went on all these adventures was. :D

So today I quit the online Weight Watchers program and re-joined Netflix. I wonder what that says about me :)

I watched my first episode of Dexter tonight. Intriguing, and I'm definitely going to catch up on it. I'm going to start watching streaming video while I work instead of the usual 8 episodes of Law & Order SVU I normally watch. The streaming video feature on Netflix was new when I quit, but it seems like there's a lot on there now. And I have the second laptop, so I can hook it up to the tv. Hard to pause though. Short cords ftl.

Anyway, my Thanksgiving was nice. My parents and my sister came down; it's becoming a tradition. We watched my cousin finish a marathon, then we all went to lunch after. Then the next day we did the art museum all-day event as per usual - the exhibit was great, but their activities were a bit lame. Last year was so awesome, so this was a disappointment. On Saturday, I took them on the CNN tour and to the Aquarium. And we played board games. So it was a fun visit, but I'm a bit worn out from it. I wasn't as over my sickness from earlier in the week as I thought, and I had a bit of a relapse while they were here. I'm better now, but I'm still taking it pretty easy.

I've also been working to organize a tournament for my tennis team, so that's been both fun and stressful, but it's all put together now. It actually worked out really well on paper, so we'll see how far the execution strays from that.

Otherwise, I'm just working on finishing the craft project for my mom's xmas gift (almost done! freaked out that I'll mess it up at the last minute!), hanging out with K, and working when they make me.

This icon brought to you by the fact that I am sad I could not convince K that Little Britain is awesome.

Today I have:

  • aired out the house.

  • assembled my new TV stand, even though they forgot to drill two of the holes at the factory.

  • mopped the entire downstairs (except my office, which is still a disaster zone.)

  • had a heart attack when I realized Cinnamon managed to get outside during the airing out process. EEEP. I am a bad cat mommy.

  • made broccoli raisin salad & regular salad for lunch & dinner this week. I am going to get back on track.

  • tried on all the hiking shoes I ordered and realized that the ones I ordered first that I thought didn't fit, really do.

  • vacuumed.

  • took the trash out.

And now I'm waiting on K to get here (he had to work today, poor guy) so we can go to a movie. \o/ Yay, productive day! Which makes up for yesterday, during which I did nothing.

Yeah, so every day I think I'll update LJ, and every day I sort of don't. I've gotten out of the habit, I guess. I still read everything, I swear!

So things are pretty good with me. I've been going to Canada a lot this fall, but that's done now. I'm still seeing the guy I started dating in July, we'll call him K (because his name starts with a K, I'm dead clever like that). Seems to be going pretty good so far. I'm hopefully almost done with dealing with my plumbing woes. Lesson learned: cheapest quote, not always the best way to go. Ugh.

I have tomorrow off, so I'm on weekend time. The day is going to be filled with things like taking the recycling to the farmers market, grocery shopping, and house-cleaning. V exciting, I know. But then Scott & I are going to see 2012 tomorrow night, because neither of our respective BFs want to see it (lamers! I don't care if California wouldn't crack like that) and then Saturday the plumbers are coming to put straw down to cover the horrendous pile of clay that is my front yard. I have this niggling feeling I've made plans with someone and forgotten them. Hopefully not.

And now I'm off to flip through six months worth of Better Homes & Gardens magazines so I can recycle them tomorrow. G'nite!
