I am cursed with empathy. @ 07:22 pm

Current Mood: sad

So Justice and her boyfriend of almost exactly a year, Jordan, broke up today. They had been arguing on the phone about what comes down to Jordan being possessive. Then I took Justice to the gym to work out, and Jordan showed up there, and the next thing I knew Justice was telling me they had broken up.

Now the thing is, Justice is only 15 (Jordan is 17), so it would be surprising if a romance at her age lasted a lifetime. Also, this is between them, not something happening to me. Anyway, I got a text from Justice a little while ago that she and Jordan had decided they could still be friends and she tells me she's fine with that for now.

So why am I crying? I've been crying off and on ever since I got back from the gym and am crying harder than ever now.I keep thinking about how Justice had a set of earphones with her she had bought for Jordon. He needed new ones and she had thought this way they would have matching ones.

This is so stupid. I can't see to type because I'm crying so hard.

This is so not how today was supposed to go. I was going to be super-productive, starting with updating my calendar instead of having a file of loose notes.

I hadn't really planned to go to the gym today, but since Justice asked me to take her I did a session of strength training and 20 minutes on the Octane machine. I would have done another 20 minutes cardio, but before I could I found out about Jordon and Justice wanted to go home. Now I'm half-way thinking that I'll skip going tomorrow morning since I went today. I don't know. I'm too sad to make that decision tonight.

Oh, and the air conditioner broke down again today. I just got it fixed on Monday. It's 76 degrees and climbing in here -- I usually have it set for 72 degrees.
