This is just a quick little update. Yesterday was rocky. Mr. Mess was home after working overnight Sunday into the wee hours of Monday. I won’t go into details, but things got off to a rough start immediately when I found a 2:30 am call from an unknown number and he was cagey and secretive about it before finally admitting 6 questions in that it was a woman at work. His inability to be up-front and honest caused a blow out (which mainly consisted of him yelling, cursing at me, and being an all-around sarcastic ass). This all culminated with the discovery that he hasn’t been taking his mood stabilizing medications since the end of May!
Yesterday I admit that I got too caught up in all of HIS mess. Not today. After a night sleeping apart and a wonderful waking time of 9 am, I felt good as new. My Mom called and said she had tickets to an Indian exhibit at the Museum of Fine Art, and I headed over to meet her. We had a nice lunch, spent over an hour in the special exhibit, then a few more wandering through the rest of the building. We saw tons of stuff, from ancient Greece civilizations to a real Mummy to Civil War relics and Renaissance art. They have paintings, sculptures, furniture, and a solid silver carriage that an Indian king rode in. I have to admit that I don’t get a lot of the modern pieces. There was one that I swear was literally a bunch of junk from a dumpster and scrap yard piled on top of each other. Weird and ugly.
We also spent a fairly significant amount of time in the gift shop, which is almost like a museum of sorts itself. I picked out fantasy decorations for my future dream home (once I have millions, since this stuff was expensive!). I discovered that I have very good, very pricey taste. 🙂 I also saw some really cool pieces, like a purse made from soda can tabs and string. So fun and cute! I would own an adorable one with teal accents if it weren’t $250. Eeek!! I did, however, purchase myself a journal with an intricate, beautiful blue and silver cover and a girly, white onyx and pearl ring.
I spent some time on myself today, and it was amazing! I’m looking forward to the rest of my vacation, including a haircut and shopping tomorrow. Yay!! I have already gotten a manicure and pedicure with gorgeous fuchsia polish that has a glimmer of purple when it moves in the light. I’m afraid I’m going to get hooked on this because I already don’t want to go back to work next week.
