Ugly night last night.  For some reason, I had a nightmare that involved reliving the trial where I lost custoday of the boys.  Woke up screaming with no sound coming out, drenched in sweat, and unable to breathe.

Fun, fun, fun.

I am thankful for a FB friend who was still up and let me talk.  We've had a contentious friendship, but they were a willing and kind ear and GOT me.

And people say internet friends aren't real.  FEH, say I!

I survived my first trip to the grocery store with the spousebeast in tow in about two years.  There's a REASON why I don't take him with me.  Aside from the fact that grocery shopping is my meditation (I'm weird.  I know), he cannot follow a list for shit and then wonders why we are grossly over budget. *headdeskheaddeskheaddesk*  While I rabidly dislike the cultural trope of husbands as overgrown toddlers, I have to say he damn sure turns into one when he's in a grocery store.

Yeah.  Not doing that again any time soon.  Although I will confess that, once I realized the budget was totally screwed, I said "fuck it" and grabbed a package of Red Hot and Blues, which are the best chips EVER.

Okay, as I was typing this, my favorite maildude brought a package to the door.  Kent's 5 year appreciation plaque and tickets to the banquet.  Some of y'all will get the irony.  My reaction was roughly this:https://youtu.be/3dm2lBzm2AE

Oy.  Life is funny.

I'm looking forward to tonight.  TinFoil Hat Boy called and offered Kent a free ticket to go see Pentagram tonight with some of the other Brokeback Mountain Fantasy Football Boys (he didn't even know what's going on.  Maybe the aliens told him?), so I have the house ALL TO MYSELF!!!!!  I love the man, but having him underfoot all day, every day and messing up my routine is making me a bit nuts.

Santa Pete, bless him, asked me if I wanted company...and I damn near bit his head off.  No.  This is alone time for me.  Which I haven't had for two fucking weeks.  While I love my guys, I don't think they realize how close I am to killing people.

I've filled out 14 applications in 2 days.  I have almost ALL of the laundry done.  I think I'll take the weekend off.

Happy Saturday, y'all!

My boyfriend also blows the grocery budget when I send him food shopping. Thing is, we can't figure out why. He comes home with all the same stuff I buy. I'm the one who impulse shops, not him. He follows the list and that's it. And yet as soon as we swapped chores and I took on the whole shopping role, we spent literally hundreds of dollars less on groceries per month.

That sounds like an awful nightmare :(


Enjoy your alone time!

I'm so sorry you had such an awful nightmare experience. :(

I also relate to hating the thing where we think of husbands as overgrown toddlers and then they act like it anyway. So infuriating.

Enjoy your weekend and alone time!

I think it is a woman thing to want to do the grocery shopping alone. It's nothing personal, well kind of, when your bill is $200 over what you usually spend, and yes gay has happened. I take my frugality seriously.
