If Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder, Y'all Should be Crazy About Me, Right?

Oh y'all....last week was awful! I mean a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week. It started rough, because I didn't sleep well last Sunday night. Then Monday night, Rock and I argued over stupid house stuff, and then stayed up late doing some house cleaning and random stuff like that. So Tuesday, I was so tired driving to work that my right eye was twitching. Then, Tuesday at work, everyone had been hit with the Stupid Stick. I emailed a friend of mine that I hadn't had enough sleep to be nice to these people! It was interesting to find out that the part of my personality that relies on a good night's sleep is my patience and cheerfulness. Wednesday, when I thought things were improving, I got my nails done at lunch and picked what I thought was a pretty deep purple color. Turns out it's black. Great. Now I look like some aging Goth wannabe. I seriously expected Rock to be like, "What the hell is that? You have two kids. And you were never a Goth." But he didn't really get the chance to say much because.....

I hit a deer on the way home from work. Two asshole deer ran out into the highway and I missed the first one, but I couldn't miss the second one. It hit the left front of my car, and I stopped and checked everything out and thought that most everything was fine. I knew that the hood was dented (bastard!) and that my side mirror was hanging on by some wires (fucker!) - which turned out to be the wires to the speaker for my car stereo, which I have only had for a year, you asshole fucker deer! Ahem. The speaker no longer works, as you can probably tell. And I have some anger management issues when it comes to deer. (I FUCKING HATE YOU, YOU BASTARDS!!!!) AHEM. Anyway. (Yes, there is a previous collision with a deer - I'll tell you that story another day.) When I got home, Rock checked the car out, and said, "You're lucky you made it home!" Turns out, the deer hit the radiator. We've contacted the insurance company and they're going to fix the car, which is awesome! We were worried that they wouldn't because it's a 2000, but it's a Honda, and they hold their value so much better than other cars that they weren't too worried about the damage. So I think it's all going to work out. Reason number 5,266 for buying a Honda - right behind they're really pretty and get great gas mileage and are super fucking reliable. Oh my God, I miss my car. I hid under my desk for most of Thursday and Friday, so they were pretty uneventful.
