Psst...know anyone who wants to buy a 2002 Sunfire? It would help my blog, believe it or not. I figured as soon as I sell my car, I'm going to buy a new laptop. I fired up the ol' computer and I'm being distracted by the flickering screen (it must have to refresh between each word I type) and the gray hue of the safety mode it's running in. But I need to write right now.
I remember posting on a Friday the 13th a while back. I don't like them because they always seem to be annoying or downright terrible. Maybe it's just that we take notice of things that happen on a day that's supposed to be something. The email I just received has my stomach turning in angry, sickening twists: It was from my father-in-law, sent directly to MY email address. Imagine that!
In case you're not keeping score, I have not spoken to my husband's family since, well, in a long while. I screamed some obscenities through the phone in January, but I don't know if that would count. Ever since then it's been quiet. Perhaps too quiet. I knew the day would come when he would assume that I would bump my head or take LSD and forget all the horrible things they've done. (No amount of bumps could do that. I'm not sure about drugs. Maybe I should have tried something...nah, that wouldn't work either.) Anyway, it seems like I am dealing with someone who has amnesia himself or is just the dumbest man on the planet. I believe the latter.
In an effort to appear as if nothing has EVER happened, we have been invited to a cookout. Awww, how sweet. Except the last I heard, we have not spoken to them in months! I think I'm being stalked, and it's not even someone who I enjoyed being with at some point in the past.
Anyway, despite the email, this Friday the 13th is a good one so far. I could put up with stupid people every few moons. But I am thankful for the health of my husband and daughter. It was two different Friday the 13ths that I sat crying in a hospital wondering if they would make it. So today is a good day, even if my Sunfire isn't selling, I have a cold in the middle of July, and my in-laws are assholes.
Today is a VERY good day.
