new boy don't live here, you know. and i thought i was all prepared for a long distance relationship - i weathered several, quite capably, back in the day. but long distance sucks. long distance sucks even more when you are, as he so gently put it last night, " a stressed out person." so, since i did not suddenly become perfect and mellooow, mellooow, i get rattled.
and today was hard. very hard. last night the boy had to go to urgent care bc his fever spiked, and he has (AAACCCKKKK!) the FLU! which the doctor told me to stop fearing, it is NOT a big deal. i have been a freak about the flu ever since swine. but not enough to get a damn shot that might kill me instead, no.
also, i had to get x-rays, bc my shoulder has been hurting me for the past month.
also, i did NOT get to win a kindle fire today with my team at work, bc i had to stay home with my sick boy. and they won, too. i'd be the proud owner of a brand new kindle fire if i had been there. not to mention the glory.
also, you know, i am just a fretter. it is just how i am.
so, well, i was all ready to just say no, i cannot do the distance thing after all. keith, who is truly turning into a fine friend (and about time he did), urged me not to. he said i was being unrealistic and to simmer down. but i would not be simmered.
till i talked to new boy, and he said he was coming to visit. well, he didnt say he was, because he wouldnt boss a person like that. he asked. as if i might say no.
so he is on his way.
and i feel, you know, happy. pleased. excited.
and of course, a little silly, for being so wound up before.
a little video, in honor of me mum. the westminster dog show is on, and she watched that just before she died. also, several times, she watched this movie. and this is my favorite scene. i even had a lifesize momma standup, which i would pose with, as if i were her sister. thing scared the bejesus out of you every single time you walked into the spare room.
