My weekend is going to be busy, but hopefully good.
Tomorrow I am spending the day in the city with a friend I haven’t seen in awhile. She has had a hard time knowing how to be my friend since I came out, but in the way that she tries too hard. The last time we had a good talk on the phone, she asked if she was awkward, which went a long way with me for knowing things will be okay with her (eventually). She just needs to realize that there is nothing different. (Except for everything.)
After that, I am going to an art show with someone I have been maybe seeing.
Then on Sunday, I am going to a Polka Dot Party at my barber’s house (also my friend). I’m nervous because I will know no one, but I don’t plan on being there very long, so that will help.
This evening, in preparation for my busy/anxious weekend, I cleaned. I scrubbed my shower/tub from top to bottom, not to mention the rest of the bathroom. I spot cleaned the carpet where one of the cats puked recently (damn puke is so hard to clean without the machine). I did all my dishes. I put away papers. I’m doing a load of laundry.
Of course, I am due to start my period at any time (probably tomorrow), because life. Thank goodness for my ladycup.
In other news, you can both download Stone Butch Blues for free on Leslie Feinberg’s site, or you can purchase an on-demand copy from LuLu.com (link on the same site). Since it’s out of print and impossible to find used, I just ordered a copy from LuLu.com. I can’t wait to own it!
