Song: “Ballroom Blitz” by Sweet
I slept pretty well last night. Woke up a couple of times but only once was because of a nightmare. I woke up after J had left for work and had breakfast.
Around 10:30 I got a call from WG saying that he was buried at work and couldn’t get together today. It was a bit of a bummer – I was really looking forward to hanging out – but that’s okay. We’re still on for going to the record store on Monday. He has the day off, too, so hopefully I may be able to buy him lunch. I really appreciate him taking the time to meet me or pick me up so we can hang out, and it would be nice to be able to buy him lunch.
So instead of going out, I decided to keep myself busy. I did some writing in the morning, did my exercises, and in the afternoon I mowed the front lawn and did some welding. Those new 7018AC rods work great! They leave a nice, consistent, shiny bead, and make me look like I’m much better at welding than I am. The welding jacket that J got me for Christmas works really well at shielding from heat as well as sparks, too.
I got some more good news today. I got a call from my mom saying that my uncle is doing very well and may be discharged tomorrow, and I got a call from J saying that her meeting today went very well and it looks like she’s in line for a promotion!
J is thinking of going to her parents’ place for two nights over the coming weekend. That will be the longest that I’ve been by myself since I last got out of the hospital. I don’t foresee any problems and am looking forward to seeing how things go. The good thing is J is just a phone call away, and so is the Crisis Centre (if things go bad). Like I said, I don’t expect any problems. I’m already putting together a list of things that I want to do.
I’m still feeling anxious today but it’s much better than it was yesterday, most likely because of the good news about J and my uncle.
