Guns: Will look into whatever NRA has available. This is probably a couple years off and we may not even be in MA by the time we get around to this, but still looking into it.
Cigarette stink: Hulky's bro was very apologetic about what happened (got so drunk that he forgot not to smoke in our apartment), smell is mostly gone after leaving the windows open yesterday. Hulky's dad shut them when he came by to feed the cat and we are airing out to get rid of the stale smell today. Being apologetic about it and cleaning up after he thought we'd already left for Maine (but I was actually trying to rouse Hulky for birthday donuts), we felt a lot better about it. If he'd just apologized and left, I would have been much less happy. The worst part was just that I got about 2 hrs of sleep that night from anxiety and who-knows-why so I was alone with my thoughts for a while, just getting madder and madder. Had to wait for Hulky to sober up enough to talk to and Chip to wake up to ream out (or, what actually happened, which was me awkwardly accepting his apology without saying it was OK hah).
Therapy: There's actually one topic that I haven't talked about here that I don't want to. I wasn't in a great place emotionally to start with, still recovering from PMS, so I had a hard time gathering myself at the end of the session. Hulky calmed me down enough so I could go back to work and the rest of the day was OK until the not-sleeping and the smoke incident.
Weekend was good. Hulky's very secretive about his birthday so only my family and his family knows about it (well, and now you guys). Dinner out up in Maine was nice and Baba was really happy to see us all (since we didn't tell her we were coming!).
