The Week

I had a crappy week this past week, overall. My intention was to get going on changing back to my maiden name. I did try to start with that, but the first step is to get a copy of the divorce certificate. I went to the local registry on Thursday in order to do that, change my driver's license, and update my provincial health care records. I was excited that I was going to be able to take care of three things with one stop! Turns out I couldn't. I can't get the divorce certificate at the registry, despite the fact that they do birth, marriage, and death certificates. No, I have to go downtown to the courthouse to get the divorce certificate. And without the divorce certificate, I couldn't do anything else at the registry. A big ol' wasted trip.

Anyway, I was just angry and crabby and depressed all week. I was (and still kind of am) angry about having to go through all this crap. The time, the energy, and the MONEY I'm having to spend just to change my name back. Pisses me off. Stupid marriage and stupid XM!!

Remember how Ginny found a new boyfriend a few months ago? Well, she broke up with him while I was out of town. I knew she was planning on it and I'm glad that she did. It's a long story as to what happened, but my opinion is that this guy wants more of a "mom" than a girlfriend. She told me right before I left town that she just needed some time without boys. I thought that was a good idea. Then I get a text from her after I've been gone about a week that she had a date that night! Um... what? Turns out she had signed up for a dating website and had gotten a date. In the last few weeks she's had several dates with four different guys! She says she's just having fun and she's not looking for a relationship. I'm not sure I believe her, but whatever. What gets to me is that I signed up for the same dating website about six months ago (I've since taken my profile down) and the only men I heard from were ones who were just looking for sex and most of them were illiterate. So for Ginny to just get all these dates right off the bat... it really, really sucks. I haven't said anything to Ginny about it, because I don't want to make her feel bad and it's not like it's her fault. But it's really discouraging. It just depresses that crap out of me.

So... a really crappy week. I asked Jim to come over again on Thursday for another massage. Some people shop when they're depressed. Some people eat (which I do some anyway). I get mostly naked and have someone rub me. I figure there are worse ways to cope!

I will blog about my trip at some point, but this is not that point.

Jim came to my place this past Thursday to give me a massage. As if his massages weren't good enough, now I don't even have to leave the house! Talk about dangerous. It was a great massage, as usual, and now we always hug before we say good-bye - and he gives good hugs too! If Jim were my age, I'd be just about ready to ask him to marry me. HA!

I'm attempting to do the whole "not using shampoo" thing. I washed my hair Monday in Houston before I flew back to Edmonton. I washed my hair Thursday morning because I didn't feel good about having super greasy hair when Jim is massaging my scalp, you know? But I haven't washed it with shampoo since then. I've been using some baking soda and some apple cider vinegar. My hair still seems kind of greasy and not quite normal, but I'm not sure exactly what normal will be at this point. So it's a work in progress and we'll see what happens.

I do need to get working, but my focus this week will actually be getting the ball rolling to do all the stuff I need to do in order to change everything from my married name to my maiden name. And there's a lot of stuff - passport, driver's license, provincial health care, health insurance, car & renter's insurance, bank... and that's not the whole list! Sounds like a fun week.

I'm home

I got back kind of late on Monday night. I'm home and I didn't melt, although I'm really glad to be out of the heat. I still feel like my mind is catching up, though, so I'll write more later. I think.
