Looks like I won’t get much done this weekend.
Our house is up for sale, and realtors will be bringing people around all week to look at it. Possibly into next week. So? So, I’m not allowed to be here when they’re showing the house off. I have to leave the minute we hear of someone coming over, and we have only an hour’s forewarning of the random times people will be here. I either need to go find something to do on my own or go to my uncle’s house down the street.
I hate that. I need uninterrupted chunks of hours to get anything done — watch a movie, write some fiction, play with music, play a video game. I need access to my computer and my gear to do anything of practical value. I’m warming up the PocketPC to bring with me, but I doubt I can get much of anything done on it.
I’m complaining, but obviously I can’t and won’t protest. I sort of follow why I have to leave. (Even if it feels sometimes like they just want their freak son out of the way so I don’t scare the potential house buyers… which is not true, but the urgency they use in getting me the hell out of there is kind of dejecting.) But regardless.. this sucks.
And as usual, Mom is HYPERHYPER about keeping the house spotless as she roams around randomly adjusting things and admonishing me for being a pig for leaving an empty soda bottle here and there, and dissing me with things like “You know, when you have your own place, you can’t do that” and other obvious crap like that. I will be SO happy when this is done and she calms down. She can handle huge, major stressful things like my recent family troubles (my aunt had a stroke) with a calm and steady hand… but absolutely can’t handle the minor hassles of life. Everybody around her gets to enjoy her foul mood during those times as she’ll snap at any little thing that displeases her. Joy.
In positive news, LiveJournal’s having problems, but because I paid money for my account I get to be on a special server which has less load issues.That was good to hear.
