Moving on .
I've been blogging for a few years now. Sometimes sporadically sometimes daily, but almost regularly. I have finally separated from XSU and starting to live a new life on my own. The original blog helped me get through the painful process of the end of the marriage, along with some bumpy roads dealing with a critically ill child in the midst of the end of marriage mess. Now this blog will see me through the new paths and adventures that life has to offer. Restructuring my life. My way. My experiences, ventings, musings on that whole big and not so big deal.

It's hot outside. Like seriously summer hot. But the new furnace kicked in and the old air conditioner seem to be working in tandem. I say a quiet thank you. But it's still a bit of a problem as the 2nd story is never as cool as the main floor and the basement is freezing. I have shut the registers on the main floor and hope to divert the air through the vents up to the second floor. I am not sure that the furnace fan is running as it should. This high efficiency thing might be so efficient it just quietly blows the air in and up without a lot of noise but the air coming through the vents is about as strong as a 90 year old blowing out birthday candles.
The ceiling fan is running. in the stair well to the second floor. I can never remember which direction it should be turning - clock or counter clockwise. Being the savvy researcher I am, you'd think I'd be able to do the search and figure this one out. I'm not there yet.
I am ensconced in the new recliner with a blanket on me in the basement watching General Hospital and surfing the web. I have already put the chicken into the fridge to marinate, made a fruit salad and done three loads of laundry. That's all the domesticity I can manage. Now I do need to get back upstairs and continue the de cluttering. I bought myself a recliner for my bedroom and I must absolutely get the crap out of my room so that the recliner looks nice up there. I can't have moving guys saying stuff like " lady? are you for real? you want us to put the chair where?"
Rebel's BF cleaned my house yesterday by vacuuming and getting the basement floor cleaned. I said thanks. I mean why not. He did a couple of other things around the house but only after he asked me. This has been the thing that annoyed me - he does stuff and does not ask. That really bugs me. It reminds me too much of XSU's behavior. I told Rebel this and made it clear that in MY house it would be done MY way. She of course doesn't get my point and probably won't until she actually has her own place.
Rebel's BF claimed he would clean my windows today. He brought his stuff and left it in the garage and sure enough today - he' never turned up. No surprise. Same ole behaviour . Something always comes up. Good thing I don't have any expectations of this man.
And I was told he has applied for a job here in town. Can you see me hitting my head on my screen? WHY won't he leave? Why? Why can't he just hop into his little 1996 Mustang and drive off into the sunset and disappear for a while?
It's a plot of some sorts I am quite sure of this. For some reason I must have annoyed the gods who send boyfriends to daughters and I need to find something to appease them. What would that be? If you know please do tell me so I can make my moves.
