I got the shock of my life tonight - Steve brought flowers home for me - yellow roses. Wow. I can about count on one hand the time he's brought me flowers. Nice. And I love yellow roses...
I tried to explain something at dinner to him that happened today and of he took the side of the other person, I'm not going into the whole thing here, but it just frustrated me. Whenever I try to explain how I feel about something he sides with the other person. Infuriating. Not that I'm always right, far from it, but it would be nice to have him agree with my feelings once in awhile, at least acknowledge that it's okay for me to have feelings - even if he doesn't agree with them. It doesn't work that way though, I'm always too close to the situation, or haven't given it enough thought, or haven't put myself in the other person's place. Grrrrr..... It especially irks me when it involves someone that I don't particularly care for - and he knows it.
Anyway, on to better subjects! I'm wondering if Sophie might not be here to stay. I've heard nothing from the rescue about a foster home, even though I told her when we got Sophie that we needed a foster ASAP.
There was a meeting at work today that I didn't attend. I had told dad that I would be at his house when they came to install the Lifeline, so that's what I told them at work, but to be quite honest, I don't know if I would have gone even if I hadn't had that to do. I've never deliberately not gone to a meeting before - I'm a little irked at our manager though.
I'm liking the 8 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. hours. Wish I could continue them, but when slugatha comes back from her medical leave she'll go back to those hours (har, har, har)... At least on paper she'll go back to those hours.
I'm reading a very good book - Boundaries - Where You End and I Begin by Anne Katherine, M.A. Holy mackerel, I'm seeing a lot of why I'm the way I am. Yikes. I hope I can put some things I'm learning into practice.
Later - time to get back to work.
