Don' give us none of your aggravation

I've been agitated since yesterday afternoon. And, arguably, it's been even longer than that.

For those of you not on my flist, I had to jettison a "friend" on Friday after learning beyond a reasonable doubt that he's seriously bad news (like, in a violent criminal kind of way). Then yesterday, I got a call from my late grandfather's second wife (I won't dignify her by calling her "Grandmother") about a supposed debt that my mother owed my grandfather. I didn't answer the call, letting it instead go to voicemail, but listening to the message definitely got my blood pressure up. After considering all manner of possible responses, I decided (with the help of my sweetie) to just ignore it.

But my stomach still hasn't settled down, and I'm feeling very frangible right now. My internal monologue is almost entirely invective, I can't concentrate enough to do anything useful, and pretty much all I want to do is either beat the snot out of something or curl up and sleep for a week.

Could the universe please drop $400,000 or so on me so I can pay off my debts and start saving for a decent retirement?

A dead woman owes money to a dead man allegedly? Tell second wife to go talk to a medium.

Do as many nice things for yourself as you can.

Her thinking, I'm sure, is that she, as Grandpa's inheritor, is entitled to receipt of debts that I, as Mom's inheritor, still owe. If she had a contract, that probably would allow her to take legal action to collect.

But she doesn't, so to hell with her. :)

I just got back from Tai Chi practice, so I'm tired and sore and much more centered. :)
