Watching Chopped All-Stars and eating my rib eye steak. Though I say it as shouldn't, I cook a wicked good rib eye!
Tomorrow I have to go back to work and deal with the car, two things I've been too sick to do all week. At least my cold is finally breaking up, which is good. I haven't been that sick in a long time. Not looking forward to the other issues, but I know they need to be done.
I called my ex today to see how my son is doing. Frank is fine (which is the best gift). Ex wouldn't let me finish a sentence, but was determined to burst out singing every time I started to say something. I got off the phone fairly quickly.
A few things need to be fixed. My car tag is two years out of date and I hold my breath every time I go to work. I'm filing my taxes ASAP and getting the refund immediately so I can get it fixed. Once that's done, I'll be able to go out again without fear. I also found a non-denominational church just a mile or so from me. They say they're non-judgmental, and they have a great outreach to the separated and divorced. As a Catholic, I grew up believing God hates divorced people and that you stay with your spouse no matter how much abuse you have to take.
This evening I got some of my kitchen cleaned. There's a lot to go, but it looks better than it has in quite awhile. Tonight I'm also going to shelf my cookbooks that are sitting around.
No matter what, this will be my last Christmas alone. I love Chopped and I love my steak, but this is NOT the way to spend Christmas. Hopefully I can make friends at the new church that also need friends to have Christmas dinner with.
Back to work tomorrow. Oh, goodie.
