And I'm sorry all I talk about lately is my stuff and my friend's stuff... I promise, I care about other people and other things!

Don't apologize! That's what we are here for :)

Your friend's situation does sound worrisome, but maybe it's good that you can't meet her bf tomorrow. Your life doesn't revolve around him. Her life *shouldn't*, but you can't tell someone else how to live her life.

BTW, sometimes I feel very self-absorbed when I read my posts here. Then I think about why I'm posting here vs. FB or talking to one of my RL friends. Sometimes I just need to see my vents written out. If someone else has another perspective to add, even better. If people choose to skip my posts, that's ok, it still did me good to let it out where my RL people won't run across them. I expect others to do the same.

Don't sweat it. Rant and vent all you need here. People don't want to read it, they can scroll on past.

Ugh! My friend A's boyfriend, who she almost broke up with last night, announced this evening that he was coming up to her place.

She was supposed to look at condos with me tomorrow but has to work, so she had already backed out of that. While I was at dinner just now, she left me a message asking about dinner tomorrow night, and I could meet G for the first time. But I can't, because of the concert.

I'm so annoyed and frustrated. Serenity now....
Ugh

You have enough on your plate right now lady. Get strong for yourself or else you will never be strong enough for your friend.
(yes, wine is flowing, and I again apologize if I am asshated.).

I talked to one of the long time Dem poll workers tonight who was going to be on my reserve list. She called me evil, accused me of trying to suppress votes (by not having a Dem work as a Rep poll worker even though there are already 2 Dem poll workers at the table?) and told me that she was going to contact the media because she didn't believe that there wasn't a single Democrat working as a Republican poll worker.
*sigh*
I don't understand what she's so upset about. Is she upset that you've rounded up more Rs than usual for this job? I'm lost.

Went to bed at 8:50 last night, was awake 3 hours later (did that the night before, too). 4:15 I was up for good. I may take a nap later.

Good morning!(see you later)

I think she 's really just upset that she lost her $200 job for the day. I have just never had political "insults" directed at me personally.*I'M* trying to suppress votes? I think she just hurled any anti-Republican thing she had heard recently.

Thanks for the validation, guys.
:)

RACE, I think you should take Amy's job, your drunk advice runs circles around her sober drivel. ;)

Jess... try to let it just roll off your back. I know it's tough, especially when people are calling you such a personal name (evil? really?) but YOU know what your intentions are and that you're on the up and up.

I wanted to go for a walk this morning but the weather is blustery. Maybe I'll hit the treadmill in the gym instead.

I do that now all the time since retirement. Next thing you know you'll be going to all the 5pm dinner specials and hitting the sack right after.

The concert was a blast! I'm kind of regretting the midnight Denny's run though... still so full. But the weather was beautiful and everyone had a great time at the show.

Glad to hear you are having a good time.

The monster lurking around the corner is a rebound relationship. Great thing if you keep in mind not to get too involved.

I say this now, before it happens
