I slept late today and then retrieved my cats from my mom’s house. I got my oil changed in my car in preparation for my long drive next week. I was very pleased to find out that my brakes were in good condition, so I didn’t need to have any work done on it. I spent the rest of the day continuing to put things away to make my apartment look more homelike. I still have a number of things to do and only a week before I have to leave for my big camping trip.
I did not hear from Frank today. He saw what I wrote and did not comment. He also did not call. He seems very contradictory in his “affections”. He says one thing and does another. After many years of being fooled by words, I find that actions speak more truly. I am disappointed. I guess I should not believe words so readily and I will not be disappointed.
I also realized that I might have some problems on my camping trip. Last year I had problems with my back. The second week that we’re there, we all go backpacking. We hike and then camp, then hike some more. Anything we need, we carry on our backs. Last year my back hurt so badly by the second or third day that I couldn’t set up my tent. My boyfriend at the time ended up having to set up my tent and did everything for me. What will I do this year? I am not sure enough about my friendships with people to ask others to set up my tent for me. I am afraid of not being self-reliant. I also still want to go on the camping trip. I cried about it. I confided my fears to a friend who recommended a gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free diet. I mostly follow that diet, but I still consume sugar and occasionally dairy. I agreed to give it a try.
