Lucky who?

I'm glad my parents are here. They are wonderful and have (unknowingly) distracted me and have kept me from thinking about J (as much). Thank goodness! They distract me from missing that lying, cheating, well... asshole. But... I still miss him. At least I know that I am a good person with good morals who has the strength to do the right thing... as hard as it may be. :(

Spending time with my parents has been fun, but something has gone wrong every single day since they have been here. Like the first day I locked my keys in my car at Greenlake and my dad and I had to wait around for AAA. The rest of the day was fun, though. We had Thai for lunch and walked around Queen Anne. Then we had Mexican food for dinner and watched "The Dark Knight". It was very good.

Sunday went smoothly until later that night. We went to Pike's Market and walked around and had lunch at Etta's Seafood. Then we went to Nordstrom and my mom bought me these great boots. Then, we decided to go to Pagliacci's for dinner and we couldn't find a parking spot. Finally, we saw these people getting into their car so I pulled up and put my signal on. Suddenly another car pulled up in front of me and took the spot. He was screaming and gesturing the whole time. My dad got pissed off and I pulled out of their as quickly as I could.
It wasn't a huge deal, but it kind of put a damper on the day.

Today I had to work, but my parents picked me up from work at 5 and we walked down the Ave. and got pho for dinner. Only problem: my mom had peppers with her pho and then touched her eye. We had to run and get her eye drops to take care of the problem. She recovered pretty quickly, though and we got bubble tea and went to the bookstore.

I'm hoping that nothing bad or even inconvenient happens tomorrow! :)

Bob Dylan Said It

I'm not usually into posting song lyrics, but I thought this said things pretty well. And yeah, I am being pretty melodramatic, but I think I'm entitled. :)

Don't Think Twice, It's All Right

It ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It don't matter, anyhow
An' it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you don't know by now
When your rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm trav'lin' on
Don't think twice, it's all right

It ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
That light I never knowed
An' it ain't no use in turnin' on your light, babe
I'm on the dark side of the road
Still I wish there was somethin' you would do or say
To try and make me change my mind and stay
We never did too much talkin' anyway
So don't think twice, it's all right

It ain't no use in callin' out my name, babe
Like you never did before
It ain't no use in callin' out my name, babe
I can't hear you any more
I'm a-thinkin' and a-wond'rin' all the way down the road
I once loved a man, a child I'm told
I give him my heart but he wanted my soul
But don't think twice, it's all right

I'm walkin' down that long, lonesome road, babe
Where I'm bound, I can't tell
But goodbye's too good a word, babe
So I'll just say fare thee well
I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I don't mind
You just kinda wasted my precious time
But don't think twice, it's all right

A Moral Question or A Question of Morality

Okay, so what would you do in this situation? What if you knew that a man was cheating on his wife? What if this man has lied about practically every aspect of his life in order to keep this lie? Would you tell his wife that she is married to a liar and a cheat? Would you make him tell her himself? Is this the morally correct thing to do? Or is this none of your business? Should you just stay out of it? What if you know that telling his wife would ruin his life and hurt her a lot? Would you still tell her? Even if he swore up and down that he loves his wife and he'll never cheat on her again? What is the right thing to do? I'm not sure. I would like to hear from as many people as possible, but I am especially interested in what you married women think. If your husband was cheating on you, would you want to know? Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Rena's Bachelorette and a Fabulous Weekend!

I had such a fun weekend! Friday night, Rena and I saw "Mama Mia" and went to Thai Ginger for dinner. I thought the movie was really cute. It was cheesy, but it was meant to be cheesy. It poked fun at itself, which made it good.

Saturday was super busy. J came over for awhile in the afternoon. Yeah, that's right, J and I are kind of seeing each other again. It's very complicated. Anyways, we hung out for a little while and then I walked him to his car. He had parked in my spot. And there was a ticket on his windshield. I was really mad. The apartment manager had sworn up and down that nobody would be ticked or towed from my spot unless I asked them to be. J didn't think it was a big deal, though. I am going to argue the ticket for him, though.

Then I hosted Rena's bachelorette party. People started coming over at 2 to help me set up. It was an all day event. We went shopping downtown and went to Happy Hour. Then we came back to my place to get ready to go out, drink, and play party games. The games were hilarious! But since this is a public account, I won't go into details.

At around 9:30, we left for the Can Can. The Can Can is a French burlesque club in Pike's Market. They have great food, drinks, and a great show! The girl who belly-danced was incredible. Near the end of the show they pulled Rena on stage to embarrass her. We got some great pics of that!

Today was super lax. I slept in and went for a nice long jog. Later, Becky picked me up and we went to Queen Anne Cafe for lunch. We totally stuffed ourselves, but it felt really good. Then I went home and took a super long nap on the couch. Now that felt REALLY good! I made myself some hamburger helper for dinner and watched "The Sound of Music". Now it's time to go to bed so I'm nice and energetic for work tomorrow! Yay! It was a great weekend!

Typing is Tough with Tendonitis

I've had this pain in my left thumb for a few days now. It hurt right at the joint connecting my thumb to the rest of my hand. The pain had been tolerable, just a little annoying. I figured I had slept on it funny and that it would feel better in a few days. Needless to say, I was wrong.

I tossed and turned all last night. The pain kept me up. When I woke up the next morning I called me dad and he told me that he thought I should go the the ER. It was hurting really bad. I didn't want to drive with how bad my hand hurt, so I called my friend, Jessica, but her phone was turned off. That's when I started feeling sorry for myself. I know all my other good friends were busy or out of town and I knew that Jessica was really the only person I could ask. Jessica has always "mothered" me a little. She's been a big sister to me since I met her my freshman year. Anyways, I went into full panic mode. I started crying like a baby. I haven't cried in a really long time! It wasn't the pain, really. I just felt very much alone. I hated the idea of driving to the hospital alone and waiting for hours in that horrible waiting room. Probably the worst experience I ever had in my life took place in an emergency room and I just didn't want to be there alone.

Just when I had resigned myself to going alone, Jessica called. Thank Heavens! Of course she dropped everything and came to pick me up. She drove me to urgent care and stayed with me the entire time. Jessica had her Wedding Shower yesterday, so she was pretty tired, but she took care of my anyways. Now that is a friend! She made my feel less alone in the world. It's wonderful to have a friend like that.

Well, they did X-Rays and the doctor diagnosed me with tendonitis. I have to wear a brace for two weeks and if it doesn't start feeling better in a couple of days I have to start physical therapy. Pooey! Now you might be wondering what caused this tendonitis. The only thing I can think of is the many times I've lifted those 7-year-olds up to reach the monkey bars. Well, no more lifting for me.

Only Human

Well, the bachelorette party that I have been planning has completely changed. And I am relieved about that. I think these changes are good changes, but it was stressful to make them. I don't know... I find it so hard to please everyone all of the time. And trust me, it's something I work very hard at. I feel like I try so hard to be agreeable all of the time that when I finally lose my temper, people think I'm being unreasonable because they are so used to me being complacent. Aaaaaaaah!!! Maybe I need to work on being more of a bitch. That way when I lose my temper it won't surprise anyone. I am trying my best. Let me just say that. I am trying to be a good teacher, counselor, friend, daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, organizer, writer, mother to a dog, roommate, bridesmaid, PERSON! And don't get me wrong, I relish being all of these things. I love it! It just can be a little much at time. It is hard trying to be perfect, especially when you know you are nowhere NEAR perfect. Again, let me say that I am trying my best and will continue trying my best. Just allow me my moments of humanity now and again. It keeps my sane. :)
