In response to a confession. When the kids are grown and out of the house is exactly when I want to not be married. Married almost 20 years and just waiting for the last one to go off to college so I can file for divorce. Don't want to have to sell the house and uproot my kid during their last years of high school. The last thing I want to do is spend my golden years cooking and cleaning for someone else.

Married 10+ years, with children, and also happy. The secret? My kids are grown and out of the house. Those child raising years are tough, esp with a husband that's less than stellar. I'd be bored and lonely w/o the hubs. I'd manage, though, don't get me wrong. If anything were to ever happen that ended my marriage there's no way in hell I'd marry again. I'd get another couple dogs to keep my company. At least with them, you KNOW they're not going to pick up after themselves.

I don't think I know a single woman who has been married 10+ years who is actually happily married. Not one.

Just had that thing where I overreact to something DH said because of resentment I've held onto due to unresolved issues. The thing is it's not my fault these issues are unresolved. I'm very clear about what things bother me. It's just that after 25 years of explaining the same things over and over and over when does he take responsibility? Now he's off sulking and here's my prediction- either we're going to spend the weekend in uncomfortable silence until this blows over or I'm going to end up apologizing to him like I used to. Probably option 1 because he still doesn't know how to communicate and I'm no longer apologizing for things that aren't my fault. He said it "wasn't his intention to upset me." I told him to google "intent vs impact" because I'm not explaining basic shit to him and the rest of America has known the difference for at least a decade now. Fuck this.

I have 3 years before I can divorce my DH without completely screwing my kids. I don't know if I'll make it. He just told me something he "just found out" that I fucking told him about yesterday. Why do I bother talking to him or telling him anything if he doesen't listen anyway? And it's not like this is the first or even 101st time this has happened. And now I'm the bad guy for getting frustrated. I'm so done. The irony is that when I do finally file for divorce, he'll be shocked and have no idea why. Just counting down the days until I can serve him with the papers.

In response to a confession. It's been a month and my dad has been really great. I feel like this the best our relationship has ever been and he seems nicer to my mom, too. I hope this means it's lasting change.

After hosting a couple for three days I was worn out. I had so much to do to get our household back to normal! My plan was to clean, go grocery shopping, and do laundry, and maybe work in an afternoon nap. Came back from shopping and DH had done the laundry! I told him that was better than getting flowers. Didn’t get the nap in, but he certainly made my day.

I had gastric sleeve surgery three months ago. Doing well, then when I went down three sizes I became a little lax. Well, I gained three lbs and was devastated. Told DH that I was going back on my program and I’ve done well. Tonight he brings home Hardee’s! He got me a burger, fries and sweet tea! I’m so pissed I can’t even yell at him.

He was extra, extra nice to me after it went down, but I still need to put boundaries. Part of wonders how long this will last. I will really take care of myself and recover after an emotional few days not to mention the illegal fireworks bombs that went off on 4th. Thanks to my upstanding neighbors, I got no sleep at all from 11am-3am.
