Whine, whine

Oog. I want today to be over. I've got a good two hours of housework, preperations for the barbeque, need to stop by the church, pick up da girls, the eulogy, the service, which perfectionist that I am will make me insanely twitchy, even if it's perfect (and I'm sure that since everyone is ultimately alone together with their thoughts, whatever window dressing we put up there will be perfect). I really want today to be over. I kept trying to take time off work to prep, but they kept calling me back, so that if I tried to get any work done, then have lunch with friends, then go to the office, then have Christmas plans at night, there was no time to actually accomplish things.

Butterfly and I wrapped presents, that was nice, and did some gift trades (including most of the roommate stuff, though there's a little "welcome home" pile for our next roommate), gave Whines and Maus and Sam their presents, and did the 39th street trail of lights. So, yay, christmas cheer. But it's not so much that I'm out of energy, it's that I can't see pausing to breath much today.

Tomorrow, the only thing I really have to do is return one of my sister's presents, and stop by Central Market, which (explitive deleted) I'm not quite sure how I'm going to do these things without Butterfly's car, but we'll find a way. Maybe she'll be willing to come to those two places with me, if I keep the list short, but after Thursday she's probably going to want to go to her home-home, where her parents are.

Monday I'm going to rest. I have told my office in friendly but unmistakable terms that I don't want to come in on that one day, at least. No holidays, no service, no family, just some time to finally chill.

Jacob: I'm going to have a busy 24th as well because I need to clean my old apartment out, but if you need a car, give me a call and I'll come drive you around, so long as you don't mind a trunk full of cookware.

Also: Monday is when I'm going to the airport... :(

Let me know if I need to take a cab or find another person to get a ride from. If it's a matter of "I don't have a car" rather than "I don't have time" I could drive to the airport with you and you could drive my car back to Chukar?

Well, mostly I want to rest from major stressors like the service, the family, and work. You're okay :) But I will definately call if I need help with transport, thank you!

Don't mention it. It gives me an excuse to be a bit clingy, I get to go back to Central Market (with happy memories this time) and my old apartment is only like 4 blocks away anyway...

Heading to the service.

Give me a ring if you need anything, I will be Net Incommunicado from this point on.

P.S. Found my shoes after a bit of panic.

P.P.S. I will be using a computer-grade microphone - I can clean up the input in post. It's better than the dynamic mic.

P.P.P.S. I think I have a cold.

Actually, the way I'm feeling now, I'd be okay with you just dropping me off at my parents as long as you can pick me up, probably Sunday. I'm more in an "I want to break down and cry mode," then a "Driving right now would be fun mode".

Me pick you up or Spotty pick you up?

The 26th will be busy - I'm checking out of my apartment that day and packing for my flight.

Also happy to help with transportation or whatever you need, of course. Call me if you need me.
