more events from my quiet life

I suppose that a couple things of note have happened in the last few days.

My work schedule has been a little weird this past week because the manager who we just hired a few months ago came into work one morning and told me that she’d been diagnosed with a stage 3 inoperable brain tumor. So I’ve had to work a couple of closing shifts, which hasn’t been all that bad. I closed yesterday (Sunday) which turned out to be not that bad at all; we were slow, plus Matt was off so we were able to hang out all morning. And I’m off today. Clopening is no fun.

Saturday was a busy day — for me. I hate busy days and try to avoid them. But sometimes you just gotta make sacrifices. I had to open, of course; when I got off work, I came home, showered, and got ready to go to Brittany and Austin’s new house in East Nashville for Story (their 2-year-old daughter)’s birthday party. Matt picked out a present for her at Target that morning since I’d forgotten all about it on Friday evening. There were maybe 20 or so people at the party; half were grandparents/greatgrandparents/aunts/uncles/etc, and the other half were friends who had young children themselves. I think there were about 6 or 7 little kids there. One guest of note was Nicole Kidman, who showed up with her 2-year-old and the nanny. Keith Urban dropped by later. We did not speak with them; we are not suck-ups. I know that if I was a celebrity, I would never go out in public because I don’t like talking to people. But then, I have no aspirations to be a celebrity. Whatever.

After the birthday party (we left a little early, heh), we drove my new car to Murfreesboro to hang out with Dawn and Kyla; Dawn just got back from a trip out West and we hadn’t seen either of them in a while. So that was fun, though we were both pretty tired and didn’t hang out too long.

And I’m off today. Then I’m off again on Wednesday and Thursday. What should I do? I need to do laundry, for one thing. Why is there always so much laundry to do? I might dye my hair… if not today, one of the other days. It’s supposed to be nice outside today, so I may end up driving to Cafe Coco to read or something….

Bitey’s playing with a spider on the floor. Poor spider. It doesn’t have a hope.

On that note, I think I’ll go make some breakfast.

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.
