My life as a dog.

Yesterday, I drove alllll the way to Iowa and alllll the way back to see my friend Jen. It was worth it. But I guess it tired me out a bit more than I anticipated.

I slept until 10:30 this morning. Then, I got up, fed the dogs, and had a bowl of Cheerios. I read a little bit, and both Foxie Doxie and Lil' Frankfurter cuddled up on the couch with me.

And then?

Then? It was 3:00. Yes. I slept on my couch for at least three, probably more like four, hours. This, after 10 hours of sleep the night before. When I woke up, I looked at my packmates and thought, "So. This is how you do it."

I think I might need to find more, uh, balance. Like, this whole getting-your-sleep-for-the-week-all-in-one-day thing isn't probably the best idea. Then there's also the business of me feeling like my entire body is atrophied.

So I was a bit out of it when I finally got around today. I took a shower, putzed around the house a bit, and checked e-mail. Coming off the whole "And good luck ever getting married" e-mail, I'm still a bit apprehensive about visiting my inbox.

Today, I had good reason. There was a message from The Ex-Boyfriend Formerly Known as Mr. Wonderful - his first communication since October.

Basically, he wants to come over to my house to tell me some things - including how sorry he is about his "large part" in the stuff that went wrong between us.

I slept 27 hours today, but this makes me weary.

Tell the former Mr. Wonderful to move on, as you have. The conversation is only to make him feel better, not you.

Save yourself from more heartache by shutting him down. As for Creepy Stalker Guy, there has to be a way to block his email and his number. The time for nice, is over.

The opinions expressed are those of this commenter, and not necessarily those of the management. Have a great week, Cha Cha!

I second Cyndi's advice.

So it has been almost a year and now he wants to talk? Well unless he is in a 12 step program and on that step where you have to apologize to everyone you have wronged, I find it very interesting that he waited so long. It would have me wary too...

Don't do it! He selfishly only wants to make himself feel better about it all. But if you do talk to him, don't forget to write about it :) Said in fun, of course - I don't take pleasure from your pain, just your fun writing style.

you gotta wonder said...

Maybe if I'd done the catch-up-on-sleep-in-one-fell-swoop thing I'd be perkier at the start of the week.

Did I miss the update on Gw2D? Stay away from the Creepy and the remorseful. I like the guy who wants to hold you while you're puking.

Nothing good can come of this. Sounds like he's poking around at that wound again. While it might be tempting to hear what he has to say (for closure, right?) I know if it were me, it would only set me back to square one. The email alone is enough closure, don't you think?
