Mike left today to go to Tucson for a week in order to pack up our house and move us away from Starfall Place, our wonderful neighbors, ugly wallpaper, Basha's, and everything else that I held dear for the past two years (Kwik Mart, anyone?) I should be happy to be moving on, but I'm not. I wasn't ready and I need closure. I need to hug our cactus and say goodbye properly.
Another reason why I am sad is that I have to give a talk on Sunday. They called me late Wednesday night. Correction: they called Mike, and he idiotically said that HE'D be out of town. HE'D be out of town. Would it have been so hard to have said WE'D be out of town?!!!! I mean, it's one letter off. So now I am talking in church, which is really one of my least favorite things on earth to do. Additionally, I haven't GIVEN a talk in church since 2003.
I'm also sad because I can't seem to find Mayan Chocolate Haagen-Dazs ANYWHERE. Is it discontinued? Was it a limited edition flavor that they dangled in front of us only to snatch it away at the last minute, like so much Hershey's Cookies 'n' Mint? Where is the justice?
Finally, I am sad because I want to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in the movie theater (again) and now that Mike is gone, there's nobody to come with me.
I think that, given a healthy dose of perspective, my readers will see that my predicament is truly disturbing and very, very, very sad.
