Friday night I went out with Kymberlie, Steven, and other friends of theirs to “Texas Tumbleweed” or whatever the latest name is of the local country bar. Yes, I pulled the ol’ boots out of the closet and headed out. It was nice, I needed a break.
The down side to that was that the bar itself is a place I used to go with the Insignificant Other all the time. It has been stressful lately, and being there alone, with a couple of margaritas, only made me sad in some ways, and made me miss him. Not to mention I had called him regarding a bank issue earlier in the week (we used to have a checking account with both of our names on it) and hearing his voice on the answering machine earlier in the day didn’t help. In a temporary fit of insanity I actually called him when I got home. Thank God he didn’t answer. I laughed this morning when I was cleaning out my e-mail and read this horrorscope from AstroCenter: “It’s true, Christine, seduction is passionate. But passion is not always a positive emotion, especially when it puts you at risk of going off your path. Today’s aspects suggest you consider whether the people you tend to fall in love with are ultimately beneficial to your life. Do you often find yourself in the embarrassing situation of being with a person you no longer care about, yet you’re too bashful to tell them? This doesn’t do anyone any good, Christine…” Eeeck! Yes, he would put me off of my path. He is NOT beneficial to my life. And in reality, I no longer care about him, I am still frustrated over how he treated me earlier this year. Oh well, he didn’t answer. Knowing him, within a week or two of ending things with me he was already spending the weekends with someone else and has hopped right on in to bed with her. I am hoping she was there and they were sound asleep when I called… That would amuse me.
So Saturday morning I got up early and went to get my hair cut. The stylist didn’t seem to understand I wanted only half an inch to an inch cut off … she took off about two. Oh well, it’s hair, it grows. She did a *great* job and I love the cut, just wish it was long enough that I could pull it into a ponytail. I even told her that I was happy it was finally long enough that I could finally do that. Oh well… After that, it was a trip to Discount Tire to have 2 new tires put on The Car Formerly Known as White Trash Honda. Then… off to Galveston! Chelsey’s boss, Queen Anne, has a beach house down on Jamaica Beach in Galveston. To hear Queenie describe it, the place is a SHACK. Ha! It was wonderful. A cute little house, 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, plenty of space. Adorable. We had steaks for dinner, visited, enjoyed the breeze on the patio – just across the street from the houses that are right on the beach, and the way the lots are lined up we had a nice view of the Gulf. (I’ll post pictures later this week.) Sunday morning we got up, had breakfast, and then headed across the grass to the sand and spent the afternoon just enjoying life. It was great. Jason & Chelsey’s son Jordan had the boogie boards out in the water, Doug was playing with the dog (his black lab) and Chelsey and I were just chillin’ in the comfy chairs. I am so glad we went down there. We needed that. Got home late last night (almost 9pm) and hustled Jason off to bed as quick as I could. I watched Queer as Folk and part of Leap Years and then went to bed myself. Woke up this morning refreshed & ready for a new week!
