Another day, another whatever

Since I went to church last night, I was able to sleep in today.  I got to school right at noon and of course none of my students showed up.  I actually got work done.  Not as much as I would have liked, but I sorted tons of pictures, created my page layouts and worked on pages.  Of course my capstone exam opens tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m. so I have to put everything aside and work on the essays.  Plus I have to get ready for a sub for three days.  Though I’m dreading the essays, I’m looking forward to not going into work for three days.

So Valentine’s day is tomorrow.  Whoop-de-doo.  You’d think that it would be something one would look forward to when in a relationship.  I’m not sure what I’m in could be even called a “relationship.”  I’m sending his card to him via school mail tomorrow.  How romantic is that?  I didn’t get him a gift because I didn’t see the point.  We originally talked about going out tonight instead of dealing with crowds tomorrow.  But still haven’t heard from him and I’m keeping my silence.  If anything tomorrow, I’ll get a thank you text.  I’ll bet that is it.  I know – why do I bother even trying to maintain this relationship of sorts?  I guess because I’m chalking all this up to the unstable job situation he is in and I’m hoping that things will work out in the end.  But a part of me thinks that despite the turmoil he is in, he’s being very selfish.  I just don’t get the notion of shutting yourself away from people that care about you. 

On the other end of the spectrum, I actually gave Marty advice and I think for the first time he listened to me – or at least agreed with me.  That is a first.  He has once again gone to the rescue of his ex-wife and as is typical, he finds himself in a precarious situation where he has to deal with her, her boyfriend, and is putting his life on hold.  I told him he needed to get out of there and he is actually going to head back this week. 

Now I’m debating whether to stay up and do some work or just go to bed early and try to get to school early.  But for now, I’m having ice cream.  Guess I have a case of the doldrums.  Hope I snap out of it soon.

Ice cream is not bad. Chocoloate too.
