he who must not be named (and NOT this one) is finally getting his comeuppance. i really can't say more on this subject but let's just say i hope he gets the worst. when karma works in your favor it is sweet.

things i did while my husband was gone

most of you know that chris was out of town for the past week. he went to his parents' house to help out for a little while. it sounds like david is doing worlds better, though he's still got a long way to go to be back to his normal, lively self, and erica is now in town too. chris will head back to columbia tomorrow. thanks to everyone who were saying prayers and sent thoughtful emails and such. we really do appreciate everyone's support and kindness.

i thought i would have a lot of time on my hands with chris being gone, which i guess i did; but i certainly didn't have much time spent staring at the wall or being lonely. this weekend i managed to:

-go out to sushi and drinks with a bunch of friends
-get my hair cut
-go to a graduation party
-clean the house
-plant 4 tomato plants and 4 basil plants in the garden
-go to church
-get a dress altered
-go out to dinner with 12 pre-teens
-see a south carolina miss black teen usa pageant
-finish a book
-grocery shop

i am sure there are other things that i did. but those are the big things. i feel accomplished.

my husband is out of town and i can't sleep. i probably can't sleep, not because my husband is out of town and my bed is empty, but because i had 2 cups of chai and one (big) glass of orange soda at 8:30, 8:45 and 9:00 respectively. ah, somalis.

i've eaten some cheese and a piece of bread with mustard on it to settle my stomach because of all the sugar in said-drinks. so now i guess i'll go back to my bed and resume re-reading harry potter 4 and hope to slip off to la la land. (if i don't read, i'll just lay there thinking of work, of the meeting i have tomorrow, and of why i can't sleep.)

g'night (hopefully).
