Two Things

One: Why is it that wipers that worked perfectly fine this morning are, for the most part, no longer making contact with the surface of the windshield? There is no visible caked-on ice or snow. And even more perplexing, why is the driver's side always worse than the passenger side? My guess is that all will be well again tomorrow.

Two: Is it weird that I just received a birth announcement in the mail today for a child that was born in October? True, I haven't been as "in touch" with these particular friends as I once was, but they live only 20 minutes away and the baby's dad was one of my best friends back in high school. I'm appreciative... I just think it's odd. And now that I think about it, I even talked to him in August and he made no mention of the impending arrival. Again... weird.

New Stuff is Fun

I went shopping today. For just a hair under $100 I got the following:
  • 4 pillows
  • 2 towel sets (bath towel, hand towel, washcloth) plus bathmat
  • 450 thread count sheet set with 2 bonus pillowcases

Everything was on sale except the sheet set, but I had a 20% off coupon that I used on that. The cashier actually applied it to the pillows, too. The pillows were buy one get one free. The bathmat was free with $25 towel purchase. I think I did alright.

And I was due for new stuff. When I thought back I realized that I hadn't bought new towels in nearly 7 years. My sheets are almost 8 years old. And my pillows were purchased when I got my first apartment... almost 10 years ago. I don't think you're supposed to keep them that long!

Things I'm Glad I Didn't Know at the Beginning of the Day

B. got married today.

He didn't even tell his (former) best friend, let alone me. We both found out through the grapevine today. Silly me, if the roles were reversed, I would have the common decency to fill him in ahead of time. I'm not sure why I have such expectations of him.

It's not that I still want him. If this afternoon's conversation at choir practice taught me nothing else, it taught me that.

It's not that I don't want him to be happy. Well... maybe a little right now.

It's that I don't understand how some people go from relationship to relationship with such ease, when I'm so painfully single and have been for so long. I'm a good person. I'm not bad to look at. I'd be very happy with just a boyfriend. I don't think that's asking too much.

So I'm a little bitter right now. Please excuse me while I revel in it.
