June 18, 2009

I haven't blogged in a few days so I figure I need to do a bit of catching up.

Tim and I have been fighting a lot lately, and I'm just not sure what's going on. It's so frustrating because he can't see that by being negative constantly is really starting to get between us. There isn't a conversation that we have had that he's not had some kind of negative comment to make. It's very frustrating and I'm pretty darn tired of it. I know I'm bull-headed and stubborn, I get that. But I've done my best to try to do what he has asked. The major thing he asked me is to not scream and curse, okay I get that. I have a very bad mouth at times and I'm willing to admit that. So I try my hardest to remain calm but then I ask him to please stop being negative about every little thing......he doesn't even try. I'm also a little burnt out on being the only individual in this house that feels the need to clean, and it's pretty darn tiring. I'm not going to be like most women out there and think that it's my "job" to clean house and he has his "jobs" like mowing the yard and stuff like that. It doesn't work like that anymore ladies. Time to step it up and see that everything is equal anymore. Ugh, I really hate that. But anyway I finally told him that he needs to cut back on the time he sits in his recliner playing on the laptop (and we're talking he will do it for 4-5 hours at a time and only get up to go to the bathroom). His response to me is that we just need to get rid of the laptop. Can we not be anymore juvenille about this? How about we grow up, act like an adult and just NOT spend all day and all night on it. The other night he was up until 230 in the morning playing on the laptop, then did it 3 days in a row! It's beyond frustrating and I'm not sure what else I can tell him to make him understand.

On a lighter note I'm back to stitching on my Passione Ricamo piece. She's coming along really well and I am thinking that I am over the 1/2 way mark now. Got 2/3's done on her dress and am working on the actual arbour. She's going to be so pretty when she's done. Next up is going to be a Halloween piece. I've never stitched Halloween before but am very excited to do so.

I just got home from work and laid Brandon down for a nap but from the sounds of it he's not thinking that he needs a nap. so I'm going to hop off here and get him before I start the house work!

See ya's!
