I had a rather strange experience today.
I was feeling pretty down earlier... feeling invisible... blah... I said to myself, "I just need to get out of here." So I grabbed my iPod, filled up my water bottle, and went for a long walk over at the Middle School. There is a round, quarter-mile track, and a half-mile nature trail track. I did a mile on the smaller track, then did three laps on the nature trail, then a lap and a half on the short track again. It added up to a little over 2.5 miles, and took exactly an hour. I walked from 1:58 until 2:58. About 2/3 of the way through my walk, I realized that without thinking about it, I went for a workout instead of going into the kitchen for food and/or wine.
Afterwards, I was feeling much better, and told Husband I'd go to the grocery store on the way home, even though he said he'd go at some point today. I figured I'd just pop in and grab the couple things we needed while I was out. So... I pulled into the parking lot and saw my dreaded SIL's car... the one who absolutely hates me. I decided to keep on driving, and just came home instead. I asked him if he minded going (he had been planning to go anyway until I said I would), and then he got all annoyed that he had to go to the store, so now he's being sullen and grouchy. I think part of his problem was that I asked him if he'd taken the towels out of the dryer and switched the laundry over while I was gone. (Of course he hadn't. He said he thought they were still drying. Whatever. I hate men sometimes. They can be so damn lazy. What irritates me the most is when he is at work, he is NEVER the way he is at home. He is never forgetful or lazy, never acts like he doesn't know how to do something, never gets annoyed when there's something that needs to be done. He actually WANTS to put forth his best efforts at work. He has a stellar reputation at work. Truly, him, and the work he does, is flawless. But at home it's a completely different story. He is lazy, forgetful, doesn't listen, doesn't pay attention, the worst procrastinator of all time...it's infuriating).
I'm just feeling really ticked off at him today. I think I'll do everyone a favor and just stay in my room! Maybe I'll crack open the new books I got at the library. I'm going to take another shower and wash off all this stupid makeup. Nobody noticed it anyway.
