Still trying to figure out which Martha

TGIF and All That Jazz

on May 30, 2014

If I could get a refund on this weekend, I would.

Let’s recap, shall we?

Sunday- the STBExH takes (almost) the last of his stuff; and Angharad’s truck gives up the ghost.

Monday – the only decent day Chez Maeve – I move furniture in the living room and see potential.  Also I come up with a very tasty new cocktail that’s sort of like a Mimosa, but also has pomegranate and lime juice.

Tuesday – We find out that yep – there’s no resurrecting Angharad’s truck; so we go vehicle shopping (plus I work about 12 hours); also Angharad’s summer classes start and Iseult takes her first set of midterms (and she only has to take four because she exempted three, thank goodness).

Wednesday – We find an awesome car for Angharad – a payment she can afford and I will cosign her loan .  OTOH, the insurance is 200% more than what was on the truck; I have an ever-so-slightly-argumentative discussion with her dad about the need for him to provide “some” assistance.  Yay – small victory.  Plus I work 12 hours.

Thursday – I have to go to DMV to get a duplicate title for the truck, because I can’t find one.  Loss of 2 hours of my life.  I head to dealership where Angharad and I sign paperwork – and we have a happy girl (I lose 3 more hours).  Also, Iseult twists  her ankle in an uncharacteristic display of clumsiness; I just forget about work because why bother at this point.  I make this tasty dinner:

Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Friday – Um, it’s looking stormyish.  I don’t really mind because I’m not even getting out of my pajamas today.  Once again I’m ever so grateful for telecommuting.  Oh yes – and Iseult takes her last two finals, so technically my baby is now a Sophomore in HS.  Maybe I’ll schlep the laptop to bed and just work from there.

(Clearly I need to bake something.  It’s my one tried and true strategy for getting out my frustrations.)

    So sorry you had to waste hours at the DMV. Bummer.

    On the up side, the buffalo chicken lettuce wraps look extremely tasty.

    Elspeth, these wraps are our preferred fast good; just a rotisserie chicken, some butter and Texas Pete all simmered together; pile on a lettuce leaf (or tortilla) with diced celery and shredded pepper jack (Iseult just likes ranch dressing on hers) and there you have it. Easy Peasy! 🙂

    DMV was a bummer, but thankfully Angharad is all set and I’m actually happier about this car; she works all day and takes night classes and I was really fretting about the truck breaking down at midnight on the highway.

    Sounds like one of those weeks you are glad to see in the rear-view mirror… not just because they’re awful, but because you got an awfully lot done.

    I really hope you had a more relaxing day today than the rest of your week. Hope the weekend brings you much leisure as well.
