darn cat

April 26, 2005

i was about to take the cutest picture of julius all sprawled out on his back on my bed with his little legs up in the air, but alas, he heard the camera and woke up and ruined it. sigh. so no cute kitty picture of him to share right now. but you know, he sounds really congested when he breathes through his nose. he’s been like this for a while and i don’t know if it’s allergies or if i should be worried about it. any thoughts?

April 23, 2005

i can’t make decisions. it sounds silly, but it’s true. i have this intense fear of making decisions. i don’t know if i had some experience in the past where i made a decision and for some reason it was the wrong one and made someone mad….i don’t know where it comes from, but i simply cannot make decisions now. i’m petrified of making a wrong one and making joe, or anyone else for that matter, mad.

it all came to a head last night. joe and i went to this nice italian restaurant here in town. everything was great until he asked the fateful question: do you want dessert. i kind of did, but i’m not one to speak my opinion first. so i asked him what he wanted. he said he didn’t really feel like dessert, so at that point there’s no way i would say that i did. that would be a “wrong” decision.

when our waitress came by, joe asked me again and i got really flushed and embarrassed and said, “whatever you want.” then i got mad at him for trying to embarrass me because he knows i can’t make decisions. and the fact is i know he would never, ever try to embarrass me. the point to this long and rambling story is i need to learn to make decisions. joe says to just start making them, but that’s easier said than done. i wonder if there’s any kind of baby-step thing for this type of problem.

aj the thief

April 23, 2005

yes, aj has a new name. this morning when i woke up i saw my new capris slowly sliding out the door. aj, who had the strings in his mouth, was pulling them out of the room. then, when i got up to go feed the rascals i found my cell phone, charger attached, in the hallway. i’m scared to see what he tries to take next.
