That's how I feel. I don't want to be here today, I don't want to do this today. Problem is, I don't want to do it tomorrow either. Tuesday's not looking too good either.

Older daughter is having roommate problems that are going to end in me having to help her get another place to stay after just giving her the money to move into the place she's in now.

Younger daughter is giving me the cold shoulder because I won't let her go to Austin for the New Year to see a boy she met over Thanksgiving. It's not even that I don't trust her judgment (ok, I sorta don't), but that is the busiest week of the year for us and I need her here.

Just had to write an email to two very good friends who helped me finance the purchase of the cafe to tell them that, sorry, but I won't be paying them back as scheduled.

My dishwasher is late.

The phone keeps ringing, and it's not anyone I'd like to talk to.

The muscles running from the base of my skull to my shoulder feel like a radio tower guy line.

And no, M, there is no dallying. Haven't dallied in a couple of years now.

To dally would be nice.

Well, damn. A little dallying would do your body good, Eric.

A little dallying would probably do my body good too but I seem to have lost my libido out in the fucking snow storm that is hitting us. (With another "bigger" one supposedly coming on Tuesday.) And the car is still leaking. I keep having vivid dreams of pipes bursting and not sure if this is metaphysical (which makes sense) or reality based (which seems to be my lot in life lately.)

Thanks again for the e-mails. Sort of talked me down off the ledge even though there really was no ledge, but you know what I mean.

I stupidly thought that New Mexico was warm in the winter.

I honestly hate snow. Hate winter. So, it makes perfect sense to live here on the plains....

I agree, I should dally. I put a flier in the window for a temporary girlfriend over the summer, but it got no response, other than looks of shock and mild disgust.
I think we're supposed to get more snow this week, as well. I don't care for it either, but we need it, and it never gets as cold here as it did in Oklahoma, never gets as hot either.
It's not stupid to think that it's warmer here in winter. It should make sense, since we're so much further south. But, we're also a lot higher in elevation (about 7000 ft).
Frozen pipes suck, we've got burst pipes at Cafe Z right now.
Glad to see you back, I really enjoyed your last post.

BOO. Tell youngest she'll have plenty of time to make bad decisions in Austin when she's older.

Eric said...

I know, right? Hell, I haven't even made bad decisions in Austin yet.
