Anatomy of a spectacularly bad weekday

  • Wake up with a start in the middle of the night to T violently retching and throwing up on the floor (both carpeted and non carpeted) before making it to the bathroom
  • Wake up to my alarm to one of the nippiest mornings all morning. I’m frozen stiff and the ground is actually frosted over.
  • Apparently it’s a day for phone calls, which just keep on coming and put me behind.
  • Get a phone call from T about our car. To get its warrant, it needs new tyres, the front light (my fault) needs fixing, as does the back light (his fault) and the wires he fried while messing around with the stereo months ago are going to cost a few hundy to fix, because that set off the ABS light permanently.
  • Bitch and moan to coworkers about the expense of vehicles.
  • It all turns to custard after another couple of calls, this time work-related.
  • Leave work in time to make it home while it’s still light so I can fit in a run to clear my head. Running’s more of a chore on any other day, but when stressed, it’s an urge, a need. I wanted nothing more than to lace on my shoes, get out there and pound the pavement.
  • Praise yourself for having already made dinner yesterday, because tonight is not a night for cooking.
  • Catch up on two weeks of Desperate Housewives – one episode is outstanding, one crap. Either way, mindless entertainment.
  • Bash out whiny blog post.
  • T goes out and buys me chocolate, unbidden. Bless.

Apparently I turn inward when things turn to crap. I like to deal with things in a very solitary manner. How about you?

    Oh yes, me too. The characteristic of a rather extreme introvert, at least for me. When things turn to crap, don’t talk to me, don’t ask me how I am, please, for goodness sake, ignore me. Or I will bite your head off. 🙂

    I used to be very much introverted when things were sour because I could work my way through it mentally and physically. I can’t do the latter anymore so I have to vent to very close friends and get it out of my head a little now.

    As they say, the planets lined up and this is what happens! Sometimes good and sometimes bad. The only good that comes out of this is it doesn’t last long and neither do the good times. Not to be negative, but realistic!

    Yep, me too. Quite the introvert. I feel a lot of guilt or shame that when things go bad it’s somehow utterly my fault (even if it’s 100% not!) and that if I had done something ‘better’ or differently, the bad things wouldn’t have happened. :/

    Much prefer to just hole up in my home and deal with it all in my own head.

    What the hell happened to T? Food poisoning?
