It amazes me that the spousebeast can be so gentle with me, treating me like I'm made of spun glass, and do it in a way that doesn't make me fucking homicidal.

That's talent, y'all.  I don't take well to being treated like I'm fragile.  But *grumble* I'm still feeling that way.

Got out of the shower this morning and caught a glimpse in the mirror.  I seemed to have missed the fact that she scratched me, too.  My upper chest is a mess.

We need the money, but I am starting to seriously doubt I can go back.

I *do* have the best guys in my life, though.  Santa Pete came over for seafood and rum punch last night, and brought me a rose and a copy of Barbara Streisand's Guilty...and made Kent listen to it.  :)  ("The lady suffered a trauma.  You can handle some Barry and Babs.  Now pass the cocktail sauce.")  Lance showed up mid-meal (thank the gods neither the spousebeast nor I can cook for fewer than at least six) because he had heard I got hurt at work through Gary (who walked me home from the bus stop Friday).

"I just wanted to check in and bring....stuff."  Twizzlers, the orange Vitamin Water, a packet of Advil, a can of Flying Monkey and the most recent copy of Mother Earth News.  Which is about as random and perfect as....whatever our relationship is.

We invited him to join us, and merriment ensued.  There was even enough of my ginger apple pie left for everyone to have dessert!

I am in serious baking mode. Don't get too excited.  When I say baking, it usually involves at least one packaged mix.  Or a premade pie crust.  I *can* bake from scratch (except cake.  If you want a red velevet doorstop, though, I'm your girl), but if I want sweets, I want to do minimum work.  So, salted caramel brownies!  Thank you, Betty Crocker.

Currently enjoying my new chair:  a very cushy, cheetah print slipper chair.   It was just sitting next to the dumpster, waiting for me.  Turns out it belonged to Walt (a former regular from McAlister's) and the only thing wrong with it is that his wife said it was either that or his 420 beanbag that had to go, because there simply isn't room.  He's happy it has a good home, and I told him he can have visitation rights.  :)

There was also a black and gold Art Deco-esque cabinet that is PERFECT to house all of our Munchkin paraphenalia.

  I think we *may* have a problem.  Kent used his splurge money to buy two more sets, so we're up to an even dozen.  And I will probably pre-order the Shakespeare set as my $wintergift.   Of course, that's our primary source of entertainment these days, so I guess it could be worse.

I don't blame you if you can't go back. At the very least, take some more time off. This is a traumatic experience!

Hugs. Do what you need to do. Your well being is more important than all else.

The attack really sucks. *hugs* I suggest if you decide to go back, get a self-defense class. No kidding. I know it's not a good idea to hit demented old ladies but at least you may get some ideas how to keep them at bay without actually hurting them.

The evening sounds like great fun though! Glad you enjoyed it :-)

All of my self defense classes went right out this window. Clearly, I need a refresher course.

Yeah, well. Most of what's left of mine is a stance that says "don#t mess with me". That helps with aggressive youths but demented old ladies who don't recognize that you make their bed won't be frightened off by a stance.

So sorry you have to deal with this!

I would be nervous about going back as well.

Got a blue art deco couch for our home. Think "Mommie Dearest" but it is nicer than our stinky couch that came with the house. Now to get it out of the house, because getting it in was a pain in the ass.

So lucky to have guys in your life. I have a few, who are gay and so sweet, and Man Crush... He makes me happy by just being.

Are there any sets you would like but don't have? (Older sets in particular, I may have a couple old sets I'm looking to part with)

Munchkin Bites, Munchkin-Fu, Marvel Munchkin, I think one more but I don't remember right off the top of my head
