Today...I live in hell.

Just talked to Tyr....the Army has decided that he needs to go to Ft. Carson when he's done in Korea. Fuck. *sigh* So...now, I don't know what we're going to do. He's upset and angry, of course...and me, I'm trying not to cry. I feel like I've just been hit in the stomach..so hard that the fist has just gone right through you. Hollow. I live in hell today.

Joke from my co-worker

The other day I was in the local auto part store. A lady comes in and asks for a seven ten cap. We all looked at each other and said, "What's a seven ten cap?"
She said "You know, it's right on the engine. Mine got lost some how and I need a new one."
"What kind of a car is it on," they asked I'm thinking maybe an old Datsun Seven Ten, but no, she said its a Buick.
"OK lady, how big is it?"
She makes a circle with her hands about 3-1/2 inches in diameter.
What does it do?," we asked.
She said, "I don't know, but it's always been there."
One of us gave her a note pad and asked her if she could draw a picture of it.
So she makes a circle about 3-1/2 inches in diameter and in the center she writes 710.
The guys behind the counter are looking at it upside down as she writes it...and they just fall down behind the counter laughing so hard in hysterics.

directions ... draw a circle, write 710 in the middle of it, and turnitaround)

Okay, I'm calmer now. Not to mention, a tad bit more energetic. Food helps that. I'm still tired and a bit on the cranky side, but not nearly as bad as this morning. I think I can handle this monkey wrench the army has thrown into the smooth (well, somewhat smooth) workings of my life now. Coincedentally, I was thinking of how I could improve my financial state, pay off my debts, etc. I guess now I have that much more motivation to do so. I think I'm moving, regardless of how this turns out (unless of course, he comes home). Its time I spread my wings a bit.
On that note, I still have some planning and organizing to do, and I'm hoping I can do it this time and stick with it. I've never been good with money. Its time I learned though, I'm almost 30, after all. Bleh. See? My mind is a touch clearer than earlier..though its still a bit hazey. That's from a lack of sleep, I think. I haven't slept well this week at all..and last night, well, if I hadn't forced myself to bed at 4 am, I'm not sure I would have slept at all. I was reading though, which often times has the effect of me passing out...if that happened, I'm not sure I would've woken up with the alarm. Better to make myself stop and force myself to bed, and eventually to sleep. I think it was around 4 am when I finally started to drift off to bizarre dreams of royalty. Don't ask, I don't really know..but, it wasn't a human court. Elven would be more accurate...but that's what I get for reading a fantasy book before bed.
Tonight I get to go out with Bryan, and I'm not entirely sure I'll sleep tonight. I have an early morning run to the airport with him. Normally this wouldn't bother me, except that I'm already tired. Maybe I'll just take a nap or something. I know that he wants to go out to dinner, which is fine. It'll keep me away from the house later. Jenni and Rob will be there with company, and while I like the people they are having over, I'm not entirely sure I want to deal with that many people. Six in that small apartment is a lot, and my social moods have been sort of on the swing of late, but especially since last night. On the bright side..its Friday, and I have 2 hours left of work.
