It's the middle of the night, and while I was totally exhausted when I got into bed, that exhaustion left the moment my husband fell asleep. It's sad. Because, you know, I like sleeping next to him. But it's really hot tonight, and I am a bit restless.
So I'm making banana bread. It's my mother's recipe, which I have been trying (to no avail) to make all summer, but the opportunity kept disappearing. It's not hard to make, it just takes the right ingredients at the right time. I just realized this second that I now have to stay awake for another hour to let the stuff bake. Sigh.
I also still don't know if I'm pregnant. Guess we'll test again this weekend?
It's been a rough few days. I had somebody get upset at me on Facebook, and block me, and I don't even know why. We weren't best friends or anything. But I will never understand why people don't just talk to each other when someone misinterprets something.
I read an article once about arguing/emotional issues on the Internet. They said that in this situation, let's say you're having a discussion with someone, and the other person doesn't agree with what you're saying. They get offline, they block your profile FOREVER, and you never hear from them again. In real life, in non-Internet life, this would be the equivalent of having a similar discussion in person, and when the other person gets upset they just stand up and leave without telling you why, then they move away to a different state and change their e-mail and phone number and you never hear from them again. No explanation. They're just gone.
No one would do that in real life. So why is it okay on the Internet? In real life, you would probably express your discomfort, OR you wouldn't let yourself get upset because you're a mature adult and you don't have to take everything personally.
Anyways. It's very upsetting for me to be misrepresented, and while I KNOW I didn't do anything wrong, it still hurts me that another person is so upset with me they'll cut me out of their life permanently.
In other news, I went to the beach yesterday. If you want a good workout, just walk in the sand for a while. My legs are likely the strongest part of my body but that sand is a killer! Sheesh.
So now I'm going to find something to do for the next 50 minutes. How's everyone else doing, eh?
