I think everyone around me is suffering from a temporary case of bi-polar disorder today. Jason and I couldn't make it 10 minutes without fighting and making up all day today... It's been an experience.
Our day started late, as usual. As it's Jason's day off and it's hotter than Hell in August, we spent most of our day inside. When we finally went to venture outside around 4 this afternoon we were greeted by a 24 hour cut-off notice from the electric company set to the tune of $264. The problem there is that we are all caught up on our electric bill. Upon closer inspection, we notice that the bill is in Jason's name and my cousin Ty's name. Ty, Jason and my brother Joel lived together about 8 1/2 years ago right before Jason and I got together. Jason moved out about 3 or 4 months before my brother and cousin did. So this bill, this almost 9 year old bill, isn't even Jason's responsibility but since Ty doesn't have a current bill in his name and Jason's name was never taken off the bill, they came after us. With no notice.
I called my brother and cousin, but SURPRISE! Neither of them answered their phones. I left angry messages on their voice mail and proceeded to call my Gramma Charlotte who graciously loaned us $60 to go put down on a payment arrangement. On our way to the utility office my brother calls stating that he's on his way there and to meet him. Once we got there he offered to pay the whole thing outright and he'll collect Ty's half later. Thank goodness.
But it stalled us over an hour and a half and screwed up my plans for the evening. My friend Beth invited us over to hang out, eat dinner, and so Gracie could swim with her daughters. But as we didn't get done with the BS that I just described until almost 6, Beth wanted to take a raincheck for a night when we could come and spend more time.
I was bummed about that, so I set to trying to find something else fun for us to do this evening while Jason was changing Kairi's diaper. She started crying and he started getting aggravated. So we started fighting, then we'd be okay. Then we'd start fighting again, then be okay... Lather, rinse, repeat.
Finally things calmed down. My friend Dugan came and got the girls and me and we went to Wal-Mart and the movie theater to pick up tickets for the midnight showing of Harry Potter.
Anyway... I'm exhausted. The heat sucked away all the energy I had. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
