So sleepy

The title of this post has nothing to do with it's content. I am just very very sleepy. Today is President's Day, a day off from work for a lot of folks, but just another day at the office for me. And I am tired, it was a long day. There is so much to do and only so many hours.

And during this long day Ms. Ex, who presumably has the day off of work, decides she should text me. And I quote "hey...havent heard from you in a while. how are you? how are the animals?" I have not and am not going to bother with replying. Because we are not friends. I do not want to be friends. I have a feeling this text is the start of her monthly check ins again. I hadn't heard from her since before Christmas and was hoping not to hear from her again for a while.

She just doesn't see why I don't want to be BFF's. For me, that part of my life is over and done with. The chapter is finished and is not to be revisted. I don't want to walk down memory lane. I don't miss her in my life. I just want her to leave me alone. The problem is when Maggie got sick I was nice and let Ms. Ex see her. Because I felt bad and I thought I'd want to know if something happened to our other dog (the one who now lives with Ms. Ex). And I had to be civil while she was visiting Maggie. Make conversation and act nice. Which is what I did (I am good at it, very good).

But now I'm not so sure I'd even want to know if something happened to our other dog. Because I would be constantly second guessing the decisions Ms. Ex made on how to handle it. And I don't need that kind of stress in my life. And I don't need a reminder of what it was like to live with her for so long.

Anyway, I'm too tired to write more tonight. Seriously, I am ready for bed. So tonight's lyrics are from the musical Rent because as you may know I am OBSESSED with Rent (Hi Francesca!). And also because I think they fit. So, here is a snippet from Happy New Year.

Bolted plywood, padlocked with a chain.
A total dead end

Just like my ex-girlfriend

Perfect lyrics for that post!

I don't blame you for not wanting to hear from her. I have always been that way with my exes. There's just no point in trying to be friends. It DOESN'T WORK.
