I am in a funk today. I am pretty sure that I am PMSing, but just because I realize that it doesn't make me feel better. Here are some of the things that have been on my mind the last couple of days:
*I am still having mild to moderate side effects from my new medication. I don't like taking Imodium AD very much, but I have had to the last week. Today my stomach is really upset and I wish I could just stay at home in my very cozy little apartment.
*I am stressing about what to do with my new lease for my apartment. I am not good at negotiating and I am afraid if I push them on lowering my rent or length of the lease they will say, "fine move out" and then I will have to find a new place to live. I have never once been homeless (or even close to being homeless), but that is one of my greatest fears. I am thinking about going and talking with them just to see if they will budge on the rent amount. I hate that new renter are getting my exact apartment for $180 less then what I am paying. That is a huge difference, so for them to say they will only raise my rent $3 if I sign is a 13 month lease is bullshit. I want my rent lowered and I only want a 6 month lease. We'll see how assertive I can be.
*My parents 40th wedding anniversary is on November 30 and I think I am going to send them a card. I remember 10 years ago for their 30th anniversary I planned this whole surprise party for them. It was so much fun and my parents were so surprised and loved it. Since JW's don't celebrate holidays or birthdays, we always made a big deal about wedding anniversary's. I hate hate hate hate hate hate the fact that I am no longer part of the family and I really miss having parents.
*Thank you guys for all your ideas on what to take on Thanksgiving. I think what I am going to do is make a batch of my homemade sugar cookies with frosting. They are always a huge hit when I make them, so I think I will do that.
*Susan's birthday is in a couple of weeks and I am planning a big surprise for her which includes me taking the day off work. I can't say anything else in case she reads my blog.
That's all for now......
