Well it's been what, five or six days since my last Natters post and things have not settled down one bit yet. This whole Casey moving out thing is becoming so stressful! I was so excited at first but it's turned into frustration, impatience, and anger now. It was so different when Ty moved out. He decided he was going, looked at an apartment, signed the lease, packed up everything, and was totally moved out in a very short time. Since he was getting a place just for him it was easy to help him go shopping and help get him established in his new place. Casey and his female friend roommate are dragging their feet on everything. There is such awkward communication between them, like they can't get on the same page with apartment related things. I feel like I have to step back a bit this time because he has a roommate. There are a lot of little things going on causing stress all around, and today Casey expressed some concerns about getting a different roommate, and wondering about getting out of a lease. I suspected all along he was having second thoughts, just the way he was acting. I think he's starting to realize what we were telling him all along, that he needs to stand up for himself in this, and not let the roommate run the whole show. And they're not even fully moved in or living there yet!!!
So when I thought things would settle down for me after we got his stuff moved over there, I was wrong. All the little dramas attached to the situation are keeping me frazzled. And there is still a lot of running around involved. Like today we had to go to the insurance office to meet with the agent about getting policies changed and set up for him. While I was there we managed to also take care of an insurance predicament caused by hubby's new tractor. Then we made a trip across town so I could pick up a refill of Fattycat's medicine, then hopped over to Kmart to pick up a few things, then stopped back at the apartment for an awkward situation before coming back home, where Casey has decided he'll stay for a couple more days until his new bed is delivered.
Hubby only worked a half day today because he's going to his uncle's funeral this afternoon. I did not go because I just don't handle such events very well. Some people are like 'Oh you're being selfish. It's not about YOU.' But you know what? These things can be EXTREMELY difficult for sensitive emotional saps like me. It's not that I don't care. It's not that I'm snubbing anyone. It's that I can't handle such situations.
Tomorrow I'll be going to my mom's since I didn't get over there today. And tomorrow she has a doctor's appointment that I'll need to take her to, and then she wants to stop for a haircut after that, not to mention getting her groceries and doing her laundry. There's been drama for her with that troubled brother of mine that I've mentioned. She gets all worked up about that, which then gets me stressed.
Thursday and Friday it's back to work for me, and then this weekend we need to help Casey buy and haul some new furniture one day, and I'll need to get back to Ty's one day to do updates on the computer again. Yes, the computer struggle is back on. I'm on the old one right now, have been since before Casey started moving, but his other friend did manage to get that other computer back to Windows 7 for me. It's just sitting there now, waiting for me to switch back to it and see if I like it any better. I'm kinda like, bleah, not wanting to dive back into that just yet while the other stuff is still going on. Hopefully I'm okay with it whenever I do get around to it though!!
On a good note, a coworker saw a pic of one of my cards on my phone while we were talking about something else. She asked about it and I started showing her pics of the other cards I've made. She did this overwhelmed shocked and serious thing like "Deb! Why are you working here?!" I was like "Uh, well, I need money," and she insisted, "No. You need to get out of here and make money from these cards." I explained that I'd like to eventually do just that, but for now I need the money from a regular paycheck. She showed another coworker the pics, and that other coworker wanted to order some cards! LOL So that was a nice little bright spot in my chaotic life at the moment.
And here's hoping, once again, that things start to slow down for me now!
If not, I seriously need to start practicing some meditation or anti-stress maneuvers. Someone had mentioned that maybe this sinus crap I can't seem to beat is actually stress related. I laughed it off at first but did some reading today and guess what . . . Stress, anxiety, and depression can all trigger sinus problems because of increased something or other chemical. Well isn't that just great.
So, can you solve all my problems for me?
Or can you tell me something pleasant to distract me from them for a while?
