Day 43331 ~ In A Mood
The other night I dreamt that even though I had received my security deposit back from the old place, we had not actually moved out of it. We had packed nothing and, if we were discovered, could be evicted at any time. I was very glad to wake up. I guess my brain is processing the fear that I’ve forgotten something very important.
On Fridays T has to get up at 1:30AM so she can work extra early and make it to her 2PM class on time. Remember our neighbors whose living room and kitchen are on the other side of our bedroom wall? They tend to begin making noise (normal living noises, like opening and shutting cabinets and talking to each other and walking and opening and shutting closets) around 9PM and don’t quiet down until around midnight. This does not help T’s need to be ASLEEP during those hours, as she is a light sleeper and jerks awake at every noise they make. Really, though, why do we need to be able to hear and follow your conversations from the other side of the wall? So she ended up sleeping on the sofa last night. Then they woke me up several times this morning while I did my usual Friday morning sleep in.
I don’t do well with being disturbed, and when T is disturbed I get cranky. (Yes, I am protective of my T-Bear.) Therefore, this morning I am in a mood.
It is time for me to buy a white noise machine. Also, why are my people (black people) so DAMN LOUD?
10:59AM: T called. Hearing her voice makes me feel much better. She agrees with the idea of a white noise machine, too.
