Volunteered for the Mile High Mrder Mystery Race yesterday and had a lot of fun. All the different stations seemed to have different drinking games, so didn’t feel bad that people were playing It Gets Dicey at ours. The two best things about the day were that my station partner was Jami Duffy, the Executive Director for the Flobots, who do a lot of philanthropic work. We got to talk for the better part of the day between race participants, and she gave me some really great feedback and advice. They also had a leadership training program that they don’t use any more and sounds a lot more technical and skill based than the curriculum I am putting together. It sounds like, among other things, she is wiling to share her curriculum and materials with me as I am developing my curriculum! The other part was that we were at they really cool bar called Prohibition, and where I will definitely go back to.
Today I am off in a little bit to meet with the Artistic Director of And Toto too Theatre Company, Susan Lyles, to get some paperwork from her that I want to have cleaned up before the next Board of Directors Meeting. I serve as their Vice President, and have loved every minute of it so far. It’s really nice to be working with a group where I was a total outsider, but that has welcomed me so well.
Tonight is confrontation night with Bryan. Won’t go into the long sordid details, but needless to say, we blew up at each other on his way to work, which gives me a pretty clear indication that he has decided he no longer wants to be in this relationship: a sentiment that I am pretty sure he felt several weeks ago, and which he has refused to resound in anything other than refusal when I ask hm to start acting like he wants to be here. More recently, he has even just ignored me unless it is to criticize me, give me some sort of order, or create an uncomfortable situation for me. I have been operating for the last week like I am single, even though I still have an offer on the table for him to stem up to my dam ends, which have now become itemized in a written letter after he walked out on a conversation with me last week. I am also starting to look for a new place, for a variety of reasons, but eedless to say, whether Bryan comes with me oct not is not a factor I am currently considering in my search.
Tomorrow will be back to full time work all day long, ut I think am going to surprise an old friend and go to a pot luck event she is hosting. It has been really good to have a social weekend again. I haven’t had one in a long time, and although my back steel feels awful, I feel a lot better.
