DH says we come first, but his actions suggest otherwise.

I try not to think too much about my marriage. It's a rabbit hole and I'd rather be happy.

I would also like to have a second child. Unfortunately, my husband can't stand the thought of me getting fat. (he wasn't in the picture with my first child. ) it makes him sound shallow, but hes really not. He just doesn't want an out of shape wife.

A while back we had another family spend the night at our house because of a wedding. Their kids are 12, 9, and 6. The kids were up all damn night. All of them slept with their parents! It was a huge kerfluffle to get them to sleep at all. What the hell? Our kids (8,6, and 2) never do that. We tell them to go to bed and they go to bed no matter where we are. Why not just be a parent and put your foot down and tell them to go to bed? They kept everyone in the house up all night. And it isn't a small house. Never again. Thank heavens we trained our kids from the beginning.

I forgot it was picture day for my son. I sent him to school wearing a plain charcoal t-shirt. Last year I forgot too and sent him wearing a Halloween themed skeleton shirt. I even wrote it on our fridge calendar this year. Sigh, when my dh is out of town for work I am so forgetful.

DD15 got involved with this after-school thing that wound up being disorganized, chaotic, and run by people that she didn't end up liking. So, she decided to quit. She was texting with another kid in the program and he asked why she quit, she told him she didn't like the XXX family (that runs it), among some other reasons. He showed the text to the entire family and now the mother's all up in arms, calling other moms from the group about it - but NOT ME. She didn't call me. I had to hear about it from another mom. All because a 15yo kid doesn't like her in a text message. This whole thing has been riddled with drama since day one. I think the mother is overreacting and pot-stirring. And I also think DD learned a really excellent lesson about texting, privacy, and loyalty. Her text message was meant for that one kid, and he showed it to everybody. I'm beyond glad that she decided to quit this program. I can't handle this kind of drama.

I barely remember being thirteen. Middle school is pretty much a blank.

DH has a history of bipolar. He refuses to get help. I don't how much more of this I can take.Some days he is fine, some not too bad, some horrible. Last week he argued with me at 630am when I had a sore throat and a cough. I had mentioned that maybe his son from his first marriage should not visit this weekend because I dont want to get him sick. He "Let me know right now so I can text (exdw) now because if I wait till Friday she wlll be pissed" It would have been nice if he just had the common effing sense to tell her I was sick and its best I dont get his son sick and have him next weekend instead. So I ended up saying no and feeling like the bad guy. Today he went to Taco Bell and didin't get me anything. He knew I hadnt eaten lunch yet. I told him it would it would have been nice if he called and asked if I wanted something. He told me he wasn't going to "let me guilt him" and went in the other room to eat.. We were both off work today. I am going to ask my boss if I can switch my day off next week to a day when DH will be working. We have only been married 3 years.I think about leaving him then remember the days when he is fine and loving. The day I had the sore throat I was very close to mentioning divorce. My heart is breaking, but at the same time, I wonder what my life would be like without him, and all the exdw/stepson drama (he jumps when she says to).

I was HORRIBLE at 13. I am very thankful that my DD isn't like I was. I'm sure there are things I don't know about, but I've made it a point to teach her things my mother never taught me about life.
