The Devil Has The Best Tuna

I really want to write something here today, and I must have started this post at least half a dozen times, but I find myself getting several lines in and then deleting it all and walking away from my computer for a while, only to sit down and start again, delete, rinse, repeat.
I’m certain my inexplicably foul mood has something to do with it. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed it would seem. I am easily rubbed the wrong way, and I feel cranky and sad all at once.
I wish I could chalk it up to hormones, but my period is at least two weeks away. Actually, I should be ovulating today, which I suppose might explain the moodiness.
The weekend was fairly good. On Saturday I got to see The Wild Hunt with Aiden and Dex. It was a great movie, and I can’t wait for it to come out on DVD. Even if you’re not interested in LARP, but enjoy indie films or romantic tragedies, it’s worth seeing. Right now it’s only being released at select AMC theaters, but braving Toronto traffic was totally worth the effort and aggravation.
After the movie we had lunch at Red Lobster before dropping Dex off at his place, and then it was on to Aiden’s parents house. We had a really nice visit with them, and they took the news of our move surprisingly well. Aiden’s twin brother moved to Edmonton last fall, and since my family is all out west, I don’t think our relocation came as any shock. They did ask some questions about Jack that were a little awkward (since they think I am divorced) but fortunately Aiden and I had agreed on our “cover story” before we got there, so that we could at least be consistent with it.
We ate dinner there and then visited into the evening, before excusing ourselves to head for home. I am going to miss Aiden’s family a lot after we move. Probably more than I miss my own family while living out here. Hopefully we can manage to fly out for visits a couple of times a year, and they have already mentioned coming out to visit us in the fall (more on how that will work closer to when it happens).
On the way home we stopped at Blockbuster and rented Up In The Air, so that we could watch it with Jack when we got home. It was a really terrific story, although really quite sad in many places, and the ending is sort of bitter sweet, but I liked it enough that I would watch it again.
Sunday was something of a wasted day. I spent a couple of hours playing Left 4 Dead II with Aiden, we had steak for supper, and mostly lounged around the house. I would have liked to have gone out and done something, but I didn’t feel right doing so after leaving Jack with the kids all of Saturday. Both Aiden and Jack seemed kind of…off, although for no specific reason that either of them shared with me (who really knows though, LOL, men can be terribly secretive).
Tomorrow a representative from our moving company is coming by the house to evaluate the amount of stuff we have and estimate how much time and manpower will be involved in getting our possessions from here to Calgary. Normally that would be rather exciting, except for the fact that the house is a bit of a disaster and it feels like I’m the only one who bothers tidying it. Hopefully I can at least straighten it up enough this afternoon and evening that I won’t be totally embarrassed to parade a stranger through our space.
I should probably get going on said cleaning. Hopefully tomorrow I will feel more like myself again.
