Found some reasonably priced blackout curtains at Linens 'n' Things yesterday morning, and though they are plain white, I don't much care at this point. I bought one set to see how I felt about them when they were up. Draped them over the blinds, and even though they won't be the most beautiful curtains in the world since they are plain white vinyl, I can live with that as long as I can sleep through the day. Also found a lovely bedskirt that matches my duvet cover. Funny, none of this was important to me until I got the new bed! I'll go back when I have a chance to get more blackout curtains to cover the rest of the window - it is 10' wide, and one set of the blackout curtains covers 54", so I need two more sets to adequately cover the window. And when I can afford it, they can be used as curtain liners and I can buy something more 'curtainy' and decorative to go over them.
Anne came over for dinner tonight, and I told her all about psycho-boy. She read the messages and said that by even attempting to discuss it with him that I egged him on. I certainly hadn't seen it that way, but it did give me food for thought. I don't know what I could have done differently, and she had no recommendations. We had a great time over dinner (ground lamb, artichoke hearts and asparagus), and laughed ourselves silly. Since I live in a studio apartment, we often end up sitting on my bed gabbing, just like I used to do with my best friend in high school. That's what happened tonight, and Anne fell asleep on my bed. Snored and everything, and about an hour later, I was in the kitchen and she woke up and said, "Wow! That really IS a comfortable bed!" I laughed. I told her there is something very comforting about having a guest come over and having them fall asleep at your place. Anne is more like my sister than my best friend, but she understood what I was saying, and said that she'd loved it when I fell asleep on her couch once last fall because she knew then that I was totally comfortable in her place and with her. We wondered why we like it so much - one theory that we came up with is that we are in a very vulnerable state when we're sleeping, and that it shows trust to be able to sleep in someone's presence. I do know that when I was first dating my (now ex-) fiancé, we'd known each other for nearly two years before he asked me out, and then I fell asleep on a cushy chair in his apartment before our first date. He was a little hacked off until he realized that it was GOOD that I could relax in his presence....
Got an email from the coffee turned to dinner date man from the other night - we're going out Monday or Tuesday evening, and he 'can't wait' to see me again. I feel the same way. : )
Tomorrow is another meeting with my life coach, a nap, and I'm supposed to go out to karaoke with some neighbors. I still feel like I'm fighting something, though, so it will depend on how I feel as to whether or not I go....
Saturday will be errands day and possibly the movies with Mike, and Sunday will be laundry and clean the apartment day, in case coffee/dinner date man comes to pick me up!
