Today’s Feelings

  • honestly think I’ve numbed out most of the day

Notes

  • wasted the day – didn’t really work on anything
  • Golden Knight came over for dinner
    • was expecting sexy time as planned, but he was too tired
    • I shouldn’t have been surprised given how we had a fight Friday night
      • first one in a long time, but still… it’s the same pattern
    • we did at least talk
      • it was nice to hear him open up for a change
      • but why did he have to ask that dreadful question if I thought he was selfish? I know I beat around that bush but, I do think it’s selfish to always get your needs met but then come up with excuses and reasons as to not meet the needs of the other.
        • I will always resent that
        • growing up, the incredibly toxic behavior I learned from my parents was to withdraw affection, attention, and the silent treatment
          • I swore I wouldn’t be like that, but I need some kind of balance here because I’m starting to feel like the other end of the extreme is fucking me over too
            • I’m not a service machine
            • tired of being bled dry
            • at what point is it not my fault and I can pull back?
            • at what point am I not selfish for needing what I need and actually have the right to demand it?
            • I accept the fact my role is to take care of people, but who takes care of me?
            • why must my cup remain empty?

  • I haven’t heard anything for Little Bear’s remote learning or the school plans at all
    • I did receive one phone early this month about what my decision was (after I emailed it to them) and I received one phone call from school transportation saying Little Bear’s school starts in-person tomorrow and asking if he was going in-person
  • I’m really not happy with the lack of organization and I’m wishing I had just gone with my gut and just homeschooled them both and thus not have to deal with any of this
    • I may very well end up doing that in before this is all said and done
  • I got Tuxedo Cat’s remote learning school schedule in the mail today and he wasn’t enrolled in Music Theory as promised to him last year – the class he’s been waiting to take all last year and instead was enrolled in Poetry
    • needless to stay he was distraught and told me he’s not taking Poetry
    • now I’m sending emails hoping to fix this for him before school starts
