2/2We were very busy while he was home and I didn't get a whole lot done in there but I did straighten it out so the room was usable. I'm also trying to organize some things in the basement, but I'm just so tired from work all the time. Anyway, he was a little weird during the month he was home. Just not very affectionate and almost no sex. He waited until right when he was leaving for the next trip to tell me that he's been upset with me since day 1 about the room and basement, that's why he didn't want me to cook, so I "ruined" his homecoming. Says that I had plenty of time to do all this while he was gone. This is such bullshit. Right before he left the first time, I lost a job AND a loved one, then got a new job that I can't start bc of COVID. But NOOOO it's all about HIM. Then said this marriage isn't working for him anymore. All the shit he's done to me, and it's not working for HIM?! Fuck right off.

1/2So tired of this. My H travels for work. As soon as we bought our house, he made it clear that when he comes home from work trips, he expects the house and lawn to be in perfect order, requested a specific "homecoming" meal. I've done my best with that as well as juggling work, dog and kid. There were times he'd literally get enraged if something weren't done. Over the last year he's relaxed a bit, which took a lot of pressure off of me. He was gone for months and then came home for a month. Eight hours before his arrival I decided to organize a room. He showed up unannounced a couple hours later. I told him I wasn't expecting him so early and that the room was a mess. He said it was fine, as long as I took care of it. Then said I didn't have to cook, we'd order out.

In response to a confession. I'm sorry. I know how you feel. I've reached out to several friends and our communication was brief. I only had two who reached out to me. I tried calling three friends on Monday because I needed to talk. Only one texted me back, and still hasn't responded to the last text I sent. It's Saturday now. This makes me so sad.

How do I stop giving my boyfriend the silent treatment when he does something that upsets me? I know it's not healthy and I want to learn better ways to communicate.

I've reached out to my friends quite a bit to ask how they're doing, if they want to check in. We've checked in a few times on Zoom when I organize it. Not too many answers from 'em lately. I'm sure they're busy, but I think I'll give them space now. It would be nice if they initiated, asked how I was, etc.

Been with boyfriend 7 months. He's 54. Has no retirement plan from the past. Will be getting one soon. I'm 49 and withdrew my retirement in 2017 because of my ex and our separation. Too long of a story. I'm starting over too since November of last year. My boyfriend has a gambling problem. He sees nothing wrong with spending 400 to 600 a month on penny machines. I do. I'll be coming into about 15,000 dollars soon and another 25 to 30,000 this year from the sale of me and ex's marital home. I want to pay back my retirement I took out, invest, plan for the future. He seems to live moment to moment. We've argued about his gambling before. He used to be an alcoholic and drug user. He finally got clean and sober in 2016 and works a program. But it seems like he quit drugs and alcohol and replaced it with gambling. I love him, but I don't see a future with him. I'm pissed he got off early today and went to the casino. Advice?

In response to a confession. Ours is the same. We're situated on about an acre and a half, and there are trees, shrubs and planters all over, so it's not easy. We have to use the rider, push mower and weed whacker to get the job done. It's exhausting. I'd love to do diagonal stripes but I can't even do regular ones lol.

My confession for the week: I've mentioned before that I'm in polygamorous relationship, but we have to keep it secret. Several years back, I was at a party when a couple started talking about poly relationships, and how they aren't natural and just can't last. It was pretty hurtful, but I couldn't out myself, so I walked away as soon as I could. I admit, I has some pretty snarky thoughts, including that my poly relationship was older that that couple's relationship. I just found out this morning that they are getting a divorce. I am 95% sad for them. The other 5% is pure schadenfreude. Not a feeling I have often or am proud of, but it is definitely there.

In response to a confession. I mean, I'm glad we have a riding mower because we really do have a large, very nice lawn. But I'm not good at it. And we have so many trees and flowerbeds and gardens that it's just hard to maneuver it everywhere. Also, I can't make the stripes. I just can't. And my husband LOVES his lawn stripes. So I try to avoid mowing the grass. We really need a new push mower to get in the nooks and crannies of the yard. Ours broke down last spring and we haven't replaced it yet. DH doesn't think we need to, but I do. Meh.

Our neighbor passed away recently, and due to COVID there will be no funeral. Because he owned a trucking company, a procession of trucks went by our house. DH and I stood on the front porch to show our respect, and about two minutes in I decided to video a minute of it. I told DH to be quiet because I was going to film it and he agreed, At :32 HE FARTED!! I fart, but usually nobody knows it. Why do men think the louder it is the better it is? And I am SO pissed at him! I’m tempted to post the video on Facebook but that would be disrespectful to our neighbor and his family.
