There is something wrong with me and it isn't just sleep apnea and a lack of caffeine. On Friday jebra got a call from one of his former bandmates saying she'd be in town on Saturday. Ian's high school graduation party was already on our timetable but we squeezed her in first and lunched with her in one of our local parks. It was great seeing her and catching up on the news. We then headed to Ian's party where the crowd turned out to a few of Ian's friends from school, the usual SEMGS crowd, and one or two extra adults. I had a slice of Black Forest cake, sat down in my favorite chair, and promptly fell into a doze. I tried staying awake and following the various conversations, but mostly I caught fragments. It was on the way home that it occurred to me that I should have taken some photos. That's what I mean about there being something wrong with me, it rarely occurs to me to take photos of friends and family. I think it may come from being adopted on top of already being an introvert; I don't think I feel about people, especially family members, the way everyone else seems to feel. On my various real life crime shows I keep hearing people say "family is everything" and "when you get down to it, the only thing you can really trust is family." I don't understand it and I feel disconnected 99% of the time, even when I'm with the people I love.
Sunday's plan was to get up early and spend the day working in the yard. I woke up around 11:00 and got myself out of bed, but I let jebra sleep as I knew he'd been sick most the preceding week and needed the rest. He stayed in bed until 1 pm and seemed quite surprised about having done so. He still wasn't feeling great so it took us until around 5 pm to go out. I could have gone out by myself but after falling in the garden when I was let out unsupervised I was reluctant to do that. We filled another five or six of those huge yard waste bags before calling it a night. Not to mention it was starting to get dark. I still don't have a path to the compost bins nor one to the front of the pond. Lots more to do and no time to do it.
