    Bought my brother slippers (after texting and asking if he wanted them) and they’re one of the things that didn’t get rung up. He thinks I’m an idiot because I asked for the box back so I could go pay for them. Meh.

    istg y'all are going to make me have unrealistic expectations for relationships. You're awesome and handle money and shit, L is awesome and cooks and walks with you, D is awesome and volunteers for errands. I need all of that wrapped up in one person and it's never going to happen lol Yeah I don't really get the logic of like "hey you pay other people to drive you around, so clearly you must want and be able to drive other people around too!" But I get emails from Uber about the same thing. I don't think they're short on drivers so much as they're constantly recruiting - and also a huge percentage of rideshare drivers quit in the first year so they're probably just keeping the revolving door going? But on the weekends I swear every 3rd car I see is Lyft or Uber. It's ridiculous.

    Blargh. I had plans for today. Went to bed relatively early last night, set an alarm to wake up before noon but still have more than enough time for sleep, was gonna go driving... and then I couldn't fall asleep last night like at all. Slept for like 2 hours at a time once I did manage to fall asleep. And then kept getting woken up by my father doing stupid shit and yelling at himself. So all my plans went out the window because I was exhausted. I keep thinking I'm going to give up caffeine again and then days like this remind me why that's a terrible idea right now. But, things I did today despite being tired and cranky: strip my bed before Fat Kitty got back on it so I couldn't use him as an excuse not to wash my sheets, take a shower AND wash my hair which I've been super lazy about (also because it's a lot easier to convince myself to shower if I skip my hair... yay depression), go to a store across the street to look for clothes and my kitchenware (no decent clothes in my size and no pot in the size I wanted and no bowl, but I went!!), vacuum my car which was like 6 months overdue tbh, return way overdue library books, take out some trash, and actually wash my sheets which are currently in the dryer and will be nice and warm for me to pass out in. Wound up getting Wendy's for dinner after running all my errands because I was starving and on the verge of a meltdown, having used up all my spoons for the day. I have leftover pasta in the fridge from last night but that wasn't good enough for my brain because it needed evidence that actual food existed. Meh. I had some other things I wanted to do today but they're not happening. At this point I'm just waiting for my sheets to be done, then I'll grab a snack and hope I can fall asleep soon after going to bed. Other vaguely positive things: I think my super depressive slump from the last several months is ending? I've been feeling better the past few weeks, although it's probably not a coincidence that both my father and brother have been working most of that time so I've been home alone with no one to bother me. But in addition to being in a better mood, I've been sleeping better and my acid reflux hasn't been nearly as bad as it had been. Must figure out how to keep riding this wave even if my father stops doing overtime. fml I just realized the guy at the store only charged me for half my items. I know I should go back and pay for the rest but it literally took me months to get my shit together and go over there in the first place, I don't want to go back again. T__T He scanned the first 3 things, hit some buttons on the keyboard, and then scanned the other 3. Idk what happened but the first 3 are not on my receipt. Rage.

    lol that's my reaction as well. I loathe shopping with every fiber of my being.

    I am a terrible cat owner. My cats hate scratching posts but I found a thing that’s basically just cardboard to scratch (since at least one of them had been tearing up cardboard boxes). Didn’t realize it came with catnip to attract them to it so of course I only got one. Which fat cat is hoarding and boobcat is just staring forlornly at. So I had to send my father back out to get another while I referee. I feel so bad.

    Cleaning, laundry, clothes shopping, and other assorted bullshit.

    Shopping isn't happening today. I think I slept way too much because I feel hella blah. Another theory is that between doctor appointments and the car I've been stressed since Monday and the tired blahs are the aftermath. Which is annoying as fuck, but at least I've made enough progress to recognize that I do need a break after that instead of getting mad at myself for not doing anything. Might try to get stuff done in the house since I'll be alone til about 10:30. Not major stuff, but small ninja cleaning things since no one will be around to question me. I did have to leave the house earlier because we ran out of cat food. There was food in their bowls but when my brother went down to give them their morning treats he said boobcat was just hovering near the bowls looking sad. So they got extra treats from my brother to compensate and I dragged myself out to Walgreens to get food because I wasn't going to the supermarket across the street and driving to the one near my therapist just for cat food would have been mildly insane; plus sales start on Fridays there so they're likely mobbed. None of this is actually relevant to anything but I guess I'm trying to pat myself on the back for leaving the house and not making the stupid cats wait 9 hours for my brother to bring them food even though they had enough that they wouldn't starve to death in the meantime anyway. Since I'm alone I might make pasta, and if I do I'll put tuna in it and they'll get some as an apology. I had actual things to say but I've forgotten them because I'm tired. Womp.

    Damn, way to bounce back! Hugs to both you and Youngest. Punishing everyone when a few people are dumb is the fucking stupidest way of doing things. especially if you're not saying what it is. I'm mad for you. I'm glad you said something to the owner person though. Hope today was better than yesterday, if only a little. More hugs!

    Holy clusterfuck, Batman. Called at 5:20 to ask if my car was ready, guy who answers the phone is like “It just went back, should be ready in about half an hour.” ????? I was like “okay you’ll call me when it’s done right?” And he says “...yeah I guess we can do that.” Wow, I hope I’m not making your job harder. Jfc. Go out to dinner with my father. Leave the restaurant more than an hour after that last phone call, haven’t heard a thing. We’re already halfway there so I ask if my father would mind driving me up there to see what’s up. (Meanwhile I’m trying to call from the car just in case but they’re not answering.) Get there. Ask him to come in with me and be The Man That Knows Cars So Don’t Fuck With Me just in case. Service manager is there and when I say what car I’m there for he has the key readily available. Wtf why did no one call me? But whatever. I apologized for badgering them (I’m not sorry but I’ve worked enough customer service jobs) and he was like “no it’s not your fault, they just weren’t working on it. I didn’t get the authorization until like 11:30 today [right after I called and talked to the girl] and we can’t do anything until they authorize it.” And then! My fears were justified. They weren’t going to authorize it and were just going to retire the car because they didnt want to pay for brakes, wipers, tires, and an oil change. But then dude found cheaper parts and convinced them not to. If they were willing to swap out my car today anyway I guess it wouldn’t have been a big deal but yikes. At least I wasn’t way off base this time. But anyway I have my car back. So I can sleep tomorrow and not use an alarm. And maybe go do all the shopping I haven’t been able to do. But I make no promises.

    Hallefuckinglujah. Pep Boys just called to say they got the approval to work on the car. (I was a minute away from calling Hertz back because the girl said she’d get back to me an hour ago and never did.) Pep Boys service manager was like “I talked to the Hertz manager here and told her you’d been waiting and she said if you want to come now she’ll give you a new car.” Asked him how long it would take to get my current car back, he said it’ll probably be done by 4-5 o’clock today. Fuck it, I’ll wait. I hate that fucking car but at this point I’d have to go there, get all my shit out of it, transfer it all into the new car, get used to driving the new car, hope the new car didn’t have any surprise problems... I guess at this point it’s just a case of the devil you know. :/ blah. But at least I should get it back tonight. And get to sleep as late as I fucking want tomorrow.

    Story time: Last week I was talking to my father about something and he changed the TV channel to something showing a classic car auction. While we’re talking I’m like “oh that car is cool, I wonder what it is.” He immediately tells me it’s a ‘61 [car I’ve never heard of] and I’m like “wow that was fast. The only car I’d ever recognize would be a ‘67 Impala because that’s on Supernatural.” He proceeds to tell me one of his coworkers has a teenage son who’s super into the show and that dude and his son were driving out to some massive car thing in Hershey, PA, and dude was gonna try to buy a ‘67 Impala for his son. I’m just sitting there like... you’re telling me this dude is driving hours away to buy a classic car for his son who only recently got his license, and you can’t even be bothered to make a phone call adding your daughter to your insurance so she can drive a 15-year-old car sitting idle in the driveway for months? Or make other simple phone calls and sign forms she’s been begging you to forever? Or, you know, start a college fund back in the day so your kid isn’t mortgaging her entire future and still living with you at 30? It may be a petty thing to be annoyed about but I am annoyed nonetheless.
