going crazy

I have been ridiculously quiet lately. I can’t be bothered with anything, and I want to be on my own.
Ginger was offered a temporary job with the company that bought Wankbastard Inc’s stuff, which means that he is away from home Monday through Thursday for four weeks. I want to be sick every time I think about it. He has started already – he drove down over 150 miles to get there yesterday. The company love him – and are paying for accommodation while he is there, plus food etc. Ginger, meanwhile, is busy programming the computer side of the machinery for them, before teaching the staff how to use it.
The upside is that he has work for another month, and we can pay the morgage. The downside is, well, just me. I am literally confined to the house now for four days, and I feel as though I want to pull an invisibility cloak over me and hide. I deliberately didn’t answer the phone yesterday, and I do not intend to answer the door either (unless it is the postman with my new hard-drive).
I have lots of house shit to keep me busy, however. While Ginger worked all those nights, I couldn’t do very much around the house in case I woke him up. While he’s out, I can get on and do stuff. I want so desparately to clean up the spare room, which looks like a bomb hit it, and hasn’t been cleaned out properly since my Aunt came to visit two and a half years ago. It is a dumping ground for all the pack-rat shit that I don’t want to throw away because “it might be useful”. I get that from my Grandma. She had a walk in cupboard – but nobody ever was able to walk into it…
I also want to sort out my computer. With next-day delivery, my hard drive should arrive tomorrow, and as it’s an internal one, I’ll have all my files and programmes to transfer over, once I’ve uploaded Window$. Oh joy! I wonder who I can palm my old HD on to…?
Another upside to Ginger being away is that I’m likely to update my blog more often.
You lucky people…
