How I am up so early, I’m not sure. Ok, it’s not really early in the grand scheme of things… and it’s not really early for me… but I stayed up late last night talking on the phone. Until 4 am. And I drank wine.
While I was on the phone, I finished decorating the binding for Stardust, took pictures, posted them and cleaned up all the mess. And then commenced ripping apart The Flying Yorkshireman. At no point was I lectured for inattention or making too much noise.
Obviously I was not on the phone with 80s.
He did call and I excused myself for 20 minutes… he wanted to pick a fight because he had called me earlier in the day and I had not called him back. Do what? Wow, dude- I hate arguments so I don’t call you back when you’re in fight mode and this gives you the right to call me names? Um, no. He hung up on me three times and when he called back after the third time, I let it go to the answering machine, picked it up and hung up as soon as he started speaking. He didn’t try back until this morning and then it was to apologize. Took less than 10 minutes. I don’t think he yet has the message that I’m done with the bullshit, the co-dependency attempts and all the rest of it. If he wants to call and talk to me nicely, great. If not, there are several other people I can talk to that are more pleasant conversationalists even when he is behaving himself.
Shredder is doing well- healing up nicely etc. I haven’t seen her eating yet but she is purring when petted and I managed to get the first two doses of pain medicine in her with a minimum of stress on her part. She jumped up and ran off when she tasted it… I think it tastes nasty… but I didn’t have to fight with her. I prefer that since I don’t want to disturb her incision any more than necessary.
As I said earlier, I have torn apart The Flying Yorkshireman. It was more difficult than it had a right to be because the pages are so fragile they kept tearing in my hands. I am also going to have to figure out a numbering system to keep things straight in my head as I am not going to be able to just copy them- I am going to have to scan them, clean them up and then print them off on the archival paper I have now. So I don’t waste paper, I need to remember which pages go on the back of which other pages and that will take some organization.
