I believe this will be a long entry. We’ll see.
I don’t remember what we did on Friday. I’m pretty sure we did something, but I don’t know what it was.
Saturday we took my husbands car in for an oil change, and started talking to the sales kid, and ended up trading in my car and buying a new one. Went from 2004 Kia Rio, to a 2007 Kia Spectra. It’s a nice little car. The 2004 Kia Rios get the worst gas mileage ever for a small car. The next year they changed something and they started getting better mileage. New cars are fun. But it caused an emotional breakdown on my part.
Which led to a nice conversation with my husband. I’ve always had many people around me, well, I guess around everyone, that whenever something good happens they have to say something to take away your joy. Rain on your parade, or as my husband said – Piss on your parade, which seems somehow more appropriate. Even when it’s something small, like getting your hair cut, or losing a few pounds. People always try to keep me from being to happy about it. I hadn’t realized how bad it had gotten until Saturday.
We discovered a screw up in the paperwork, that actually raised the price of the car by $555 dollars (which they are sending me, in a check) and my husband called and left them a message and I started having a full blown panic attack. This is pretty unusual for me. My heart started racing and wouldn’t stop and I couldn’t breathe very well, and then I started feeling my blood pressure go up. I just kept trying to relax and BREATHE and I got myself under control and went on with my day.
My husband and I went to the movies and while we were waiting for it to start we were talking and I apologized for getting so tense, and then I explained to him that I realized I was waiting for him to start yelling. And then we got to talking about peoples reaction to me whenever I am happy. And he acknowledged, and agreed. Which I’m sure most of you know, is an important thing. To have someone validate what you think really does make a world of difference. I wonder why people react that way to me? Is it something I do? Is it some behavior that I have?
Saw the movie Hot Fuzz, which we both really liked. It was quite funny.
Also went to Toledo Botanical Gardens for a while. Very nice place. We’ll need to go back in a month or so when things are blooming. This was not a good year for spring flowers. I took pictures of my spring blooming plants, and it’s a sad sight.
Hey – I just noticed I have a swollen and numb spot on my face! Eww! So I either have a tooth abscessing (please, no!) or maybe my sinuses? It’s in the same spot as sinus. I get the feeling it’s going to be one of those weeks.
My husband got his first Monthly paycheck today. Just weird to get paid monthly. Hmm, I guess I should say, I got my husbands first monthly paycheck today. It’s direct deposit, and I do all of the bank stuff.
Well, that wasn’t too long of an entry. Off I go.
