An Actual Post

XM just came by about a half an hour ago.  He had emailed that he needed our original marriage certificate for the divorce paperwork, and I had the certificate.  He said I could just leave it at the door if I didn't want to see him.  I didn't feel comfortable about just leaving it outside, so I said I'd be fine to see him, but I'd just give him the certificate and leave it at that.  And that's pretty much what happened.  It was just uncomfortable.  I think it's just that I don't know what to say to him any more.  I can't just chat.  Any questions I think to ask are ones that I really don't need to know the answers to, like whether or not that other chick is still living with him.  I cried a little when he left.  It's just still so surreal to me that I basically no longer have a relationship with this man who was everything to me, who I moved to a different country to be with, who I had committed myself to and who I wanted to spend my life with.  Ugh.  It just sucks.

I've had a good week at work so far, and there's only one more day left!  It's a fairly slow week for me, but it helps that Candy has been out sick most of the week.  She was in for most of Tuesday but even then she left a little early because she felt bad.  I don't know exactly what she's under the weather with, but I know when I spoke with her Monday by phone she said she had a horrible headache and she honestly looked like crap when she was in on Tuesday.  Anyway, when she's not in the office it's a nicer day for me because things are just more relaxed.  And even though she and I had some friction recently, that was the case even before all of that, so I don't think it really has anything to do with it.  I think it's that way for most people - it's more relaxed when you know there's no one there to really pay attention to what you're doing!  That makes it sound like I don't do anything when Candy isn't there, which isn't true.  I just like when there's no pressure.

The yarn store I usually go to sponsors a knitting trip every November.  It's a train trip to Jasper for four days.  There's always a knitting designer that comes as part of the trip.  They have various workshops and time to hang out.  All the ladies I knit with are planning on going and most of them have already signed up.  They were all telling me that I should go and how much fun it is and that I'd come home with my stomach hurting from laughing so much.  Like it's our Wednesday night group for four days.  I would really like to go because I think it would be a lot of fun and I do love going to Jasper.  However, it's $1000.  I'd have to take at least two days off of work and realistically it'd be three.  Last year the return train didn't arrive until after midnight on Monday night/Tuesday morning, so going to work on Tuesday wouldn't be ideal.  If I really wanted to do it, I could.  I would just barely have the vacation time to take the three days off, and I could afford to go because of my inheritance from my granddad (and that's the only reason I could afford it).  I just don't know.  That's a real chunk of money and I'm trying to be really conscientious about how I spend my inheritance.  I'm really going to have to think about it.

Random Stuff

Does anyone know of a good teeth whitening kit or thing?  My teeth are starting to look like they need a little pick-me-up.  I could get it done at my dentist, which I might do eventually, but I feel like I should start with the regular store stuff.  So, any suggestions?

Our receptionist at work resigned because her family was moving back east.  Her last day was this past Thursday.  However, her manager is currently on maternity leave and won't be back for a few months.  They're not going to hire a new receptionist until then.  So we had a temp receptionist start this morning.  She seems nice, but I only had a little bit of interaction with her.  But right off the bat I had that nagging feeling that she really reminded me of someone.  After a few minutes, it finally clicked with me who she reminded me of - Nadya Suleman aka Octomom.  This new receptionist is like a younger (early 20's) Octomom!  So now I'm having trouble looking at her and not thinking of Nadya.  We'll see how day 2 goes.

I'm in Silence... Apparently

For those of you whose blogs I read and usually comment on... well, I can't.  I don't know why and I'll try to figure it out.  I comment and it says that my comment is saved, but then I go back later and my comment is not there.  Anyway, don't take my silence as my not reading your blog, it's just that I can't.  

Every morning this week I have woken up an hour to an hour and a half before my alarm and I can't get back to sleep.  This does not make me happy.  It does make me tired.  And it doesn't make me feel like blogging.  Sorry, folks.  It'll come back around.

Where in the World is Suzy Sandiego?

My blog disappeard for a little while.  I have no idea why.  I kind of wonder if it had something to do with the magnet that I posted.  It's not offensive or anything, but maybe because it mentions an addictive substance...?

Anyway, I haven't deleted my blog.  Hopefully this doesn't happen again.  Have a nice day!

Saw This Today

People, there really is no such thing as a "greener pasture." Those of you who keep rushing off to find it think that you have the worst luck because your green pastures lose their luster once you get there. It's not the pasture, folks--it's you. Take care of the pasture you have, start appreciating it more and maybe it will turn greener for you.
