SNAFU

















'Situation Normal; All Fucked Up' is how I feel this week.

Huge fight with husband on Saturday, and I am trying to come up out of it.

Feelings are clinging like socks on your skirt right out of the dryer!

Why do men feel they can do whatever they want, and we have to be so considerate and ask first?

Solutions Thrown My Way...

Talk to a problem-solver- "People often think they should be able to handle problems on their own, and they don't want to burden others," says psychologist. "But it's easier to strategize with support." Discuss things you can do to feel better as well as fix the problem.

Or...

Take credit cards and go shopping?

Or...

Eat piles of crap food and lots of alcohol that might make you feel worse later?

Or, my thought was...

Purchase a lot of newer hairbrushes and keep them laying around every room in the house as a reminder of the Hell's Angel post?

You know what they say..."You can't live with them, and you can't kill them"!

















I did however receive this note from a member of our Cultural Art Expression- Open Mic, and somehow I wonder why we find it hard to except compliments; when we feel like we just suck all around...

Wanted you to know that the world could use a few more like you.

You have a very inspiring spirit, and all in attendance seemed to respect and admire you. I learned last night that I must make an effort if I am to find kindred spirits. I have all this time assumed I was just too odd to ever really "fit in".

I realize I was rather reserved, but I am not accustom to just jumping in when in new company. I prefer the role of observer to that of participant generally, but especially when around strangers.

You are a jovial lot, and I imbibed of all the interesting presence there, and left happy.

So keep it up. Without Chef E's the world is a lot more grey.

Sincerely, Robert Ciccolini

NOTE: Negative comments would just make this worse, and I am just venting to let you know why I cannot find much to say, and will be away...

I feel for you as I'm in the exact same boat!

My fiance just does whatever he pleases whenever he pleases and never stops to consider that in order for me to do anything I have to get a babysitter then clear it with him and what is up with us having to ask them to watch their own children so that we can go do something that we need, not want, but need to do?

That coupled with the fact that he and I never talk about anything makes for a very lonely and quite unhappy environment...I could go on about this all day but I won't1

It's good to vent and get it out. But there's also a time to forgive. Here's a bit from Andy Andrews, one of my favorite writers:

"Many are the times when I have seethed in anger at a word or deed thrown into my life by an unthinking or uncaring person. Valuable hours have been wasted imagining revenge or confrontation. Now I see the truth revealed about this psychological rock in side my shoe. The rage I nurture is often one-sided, for my offender seldom gives thought to his offense."

(and notice Andy specifically said his offense....we men can be asswipes, sorry.)

Chef E said...

What is really odd is that we never fight...I let him do as he wants, because I love him. He just did something very inconsiderate, and did not include me as he usually does...I knew what a spoiled brat he was when we married...he is better than the first one who did not spend money and could not keep a job...

Your right Chris, I had to vent...I am in reality a private person; until I discovered blogs :)
