TC has been working for about 3 weeks now. For most of you, you're probably thinking a heartfelt good for him because he has a job. Thing is, TC has had this job for years (give or take promotions). Due to the nature of his job, when he works either I go with him or he goes by himself. Normally I would be with him. This particular few weeks, I was not able to go with. We're getting married next month. I haven't seen him in weeks. This is quite possibly one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. There are days when I just don't want to get out of bed, I mean, what's the point? Not like I have anything to do. This is usually when Rommy starts barking and I have to get up to let her out. It was good when our roommates were here, but they moved out at the end of March. So, I'm home alone, in a sketchy neighborhood. Not like I can go for walks. I save my trips to the store until the very last minute, and if possible, I go to all the stores I need to so I don't have to go out again. You could say I'm depressed. It's getting better. It's not getting easier. It's frightened me how much I can relate to agoraphobes lately. TC is coming home sometime in the next few days, and things will start getting done around the house that I can't do without him.
On the flipside of this depression, I have a clean house. I vacuum often, I have cleaned out all the cabinets and am currently in the process of stripping the linoleum in the kitchen. I have potted some plants and have a veritable garden on my front porch. I read two books in the last couple days. I've listened to a few new albums (Trampled by Turtles, Florence and the Machine, and some The Devil Makes Three live stuff). I've rearranged the furniture three times. I've caught up with old friends. Most importantly, I am planning for the wedding reception. We're having a small, private ceremony and then festivities to follow. I've been writing envelopes and designing invitations etc. I've been busy doing lots of things, but sometimes I just sit in the hammock. I feel like I haven't really done anything worth writing about, which is why I haven't updated my blog. So, this is me updating it. I will post before and after pictures of the linoleum floor. I also dyed my hair. Maybe I'll post before and after pictures of that too. That's what's going on! WOO!
