I haven't asked this in awhile because no one ever seemed to respond, but I'm gonna try again...

How was everyone's weekend? Anything exciting happening?

I went book shopping, but didn't find the ones I'm looking for. I did find a new pair of shorts on sale, one size smaller than I would have bought last year. Not much else going on with me.

Oh, Ms. Flake called Thursday. She said my message got lost on her machine and she'd just gotten it. I guess one person cancelled, so she assumed that person called me to cancel as well. She apologized, but I wouldn't say "It's okay." Cause it wasn't! I just told her that if she wanted to do it some other time, to call.

I'll answer you!

My weekend was very boring--just as I had planned it. I'd been on the go so much on the weekends that I decided that all I wanted to do was stay in. I thought I'd love all that time to myself, but by yesterday afternoon I was going nuts. At least I have a clean house now!

I'd be so annoyed with Ms. Flake by now that I would have given her a piece of my mind. I hope you've let her know how much her actions have bothered you. And I think that line about your message getting lost on her machine is a load of crap! She's just being inconsiderate and is trying to cover for herself.

You know, my first reaction was that she was just blowing me off, but if she really did just ignore my message, why would she call at all? She said that one of her daughters played the message and she didn't hear it, then suddenly mine and another one appeared that day. It sounds weird, but a little too involved to be made up. I'm more annoyed that I didn't get a call to cancel than I am about her waiting to return my message.

You're right: I did want to give them all a piece of my mind, but I just can't do that. I guess I'm just too nice.

I had a long w/end...everyone at the office ganged up on me b/c I have three weeks holidays and 2 days of OT banked. And Friday was the hottest day of the year here so far - 32 degrees Celsius! (thats 90 F) Good thing too - I needed it badly. The stress and lack of sleep REALLY caught up with me. I spent two FULL days on the beach, got tons of chores done, shopping, baking, pre-cooked meals for the week...it was a load off.

I also spent sat night w/my baby nephew. Little guy brings out the songbird in me and he was a willing dance partner :) Sun morning I spent w/my sister-in-law and the afternoon with my sister in the cementary planting perennials at dad's site. We should have brought some for grandma & grandpa. Interestingly, I have signed up to get my motorbike licensing, picked out one, etc...on my way to the tap I saw the lettering "Jay" on a tombstone. Could it be my Jay? I heard too late about his funeral and did not know where he was buried...I pulled away the weed and dirt to see the last name...yes, it was him! I was so HAPPY!!! And I also decided right then and there to drop the whole motorbike idea!! I'm taking it as a SIGN. I am also going to go back and plant some flowers on his overgrown and ignored site....

I can't help but think. I believe in kindred spirits but if I were to believe in soulmates its highly possible Jay was mine and he's gone. I was the closest thing he ever had to a gf...kind of sad...gee, if I'd have known maybe I would have gone all the way with him, LOL ;-)

Go.

You're going to have to forgive me, Go. I don't remember Jay. Did this happen recently?

I'm glad you got some much needed rest. You work yourself too hard! I know you're trying to fill your empty time, but gosh, a girl's gotta stop to breathe!

Oh, and I wanted to tell you that I bought new sheets this weekend- very, very soft- and the little tag said they were "environmentally friendly". I don't know exactly how, but when I saw the tag, I thought if you and decided that I had to chose them!

Ah, cool!! That makes me feel good...

Jay and I hung out in jr & sr high school. His best and my best friend were a couple. We kissed (he was my first french kiss) and held hands, picked each other as partners in all our classes (re-arranged our schedules to be in the same classes, etc). One year after graduation, he was killed in a motorcycle accident. I think of him often...for some reason (maybe b/c it was unresolved w/o the goodbye).

Go.
