Ceecee told me that she bought a martini set from Dillard’s yesterday and she carried it home on her bike. She gets these amazing deals there. I can’t believe some of what she brings home for so little money.

I have so much going on today. I had a job interview this morning at Macy’s. I had been looking for a Summer job, but it’s been getting so far into Summer that I don’t know how this is going to work. They only had a daytime position and since I’ll be going back to school in about a month, I obviously can’t do that. I told them I could do nights and weekends and maybe stay on after school gets started, but they said they didn’t have anything.

Then, late this afternoon, they called back and asked if I wanted to come back to interview for a nights and weekends position. I don’t know how well run I think the place is, but I went back and they hired me as a part-time furniture salesman. I’ve never done that before, but it’s not just commission. It will be an hourly wage with potential commission.

I also had my second session with Dr. Black and it was really incredible again. It’s not like going to counseling and being asked, “what do you want to talk about today?” It’s more like going to the doctor and he checks you all out and tells you what he thinks is wrong and what to do about it. I guess this is “therapy,” not just counseling.

While I was in Republic, I went and talked to the pastor of the church there. I couldn’t believe his reaction. His non-reaction, I guess I should say. At least twice while we were still attending regularly there, we put prayer requests in for our marriage and no one from the leadership ever even acknowledged anything. No one reached out, asked if we were ok, or tried to help on any way.

So today, I went in and told him what was going on and what had gone on and he just acted like it was nothing. He didn’t seem shocked, surprised, concerned, or anything. It was just like, “Oh well, it happens.”

On her Facebook today, Ceecee wrote that all she needs now is a car and “all will be set.” I’m not sure what that means, but it doesn’t sound good. If we’re going to get back together soon, we don’t need another car. If she feels that she needs a car, then maybe she’s not thinking in terms of the separation being over anytime soon.

The best thing that happened today was that Ceecee wants to see me tomorrow! She finally has a day off and she wants to work out and then try out her new martini stuff. She says she wants to get ingredients for “Turkish martinis,” whatever that means. I don’t care, I’m just pretty stoked that after that fight, she seems to be more interested in staying in communication when I had pretty much pulled back.
