conversations with your SO - just a vent

Mrs Fireball's picture

Does your partner constantly talk about one subject?

My DH constantly talks about work. He finds it fascinating, but I honestly don't and sometimes find myself zoning out and not listening to him. Don't care about valve cover gaskets or transmissions or oil filters, and never will! lol

I don't want to hurt his feelings and try to listen and learn. I could probably ball-park diagnose someone's car issues, so that's a positive!


MSS shows up for gifts, goes to Medusa's for clothes and doesn't come back

Last night, we opened gifts with the kids because of the vistation schedule this year. MSS apparently was NOT thrilled with having less gifts to open than the others. He got around the same amount of $$, but we gave him a $100 gift card, plus some car accessory stuff and a charging dock,  and YSS and my kids got mostly small-ish gifts. MSS is hard to shop for so we figured a gift card was the way to go. 

MSS probably won't be coming around much anymore

MSS and YSS came over Wednesday. H got home later than usual because he picked up our online grocery order on the way home. I was taking a shower and didn't hear them arrive. When I came out I saw YSS and assumed H picked him up and MSS wasn't here. I asked H if MSS was coming and H said MSS was here! He was up in his bedroom. He never came down to greet us. 

lies lies lies, yeah

MSS17 is shaping up to be quite the skilled liar! Recently, MSS has been coming up with every excuse in the book to not come over and stay weekends or come over for dinner on Wednesdays. 

Yesterday DH told me he had to go pick up YSS because MSS was going to spend the night at his friend's house, because it was the freind's birthday. It sounded strange to me that a 17 yo is still interested in sleep overs, and MSS hadn't mentioned this kid in years! 

skid lies about going to game with Medusa

MSS has evolved into quite the liar. Last Wednesday he mentioned that he was invited to a college football game this weekend and I asked him who invited him. He mentioned a friend of his, "B" in a mumbly kind of way (that's when I know he's lying lol). DH didn't say yay or nay when MSS mentioned it.

CS question

When DH and Medusa divorced in 2010, DH was bringing in a lot more money compared to now. 

So DH filed online, with DHS, to review his child support. He paid a $25 fee and got a notification that they would contact him for additional documentation required, etc. 

So today DH finds out that DHS sent the paperwork to MEDUSA to fill out! And if she doesn't return the paperwork, DH's case will be closed. It doesn't make any sense!

How do NCP file for CS reviews? We're not hiring an attorney so I guess we are screwed. 


OT - bad haircut

Mrs Fireball's picture

My hair is naturally curly and extremely thick. For the past ten years I've been growing it out longer and it was almost half way down my back. 

Before I married DH, I lived in a major metropolitan city and had an awesome stylist who specialized in cutting curly hair. She was awesome but unfortunately I had to say bye when I moved to DH's city.

We've lived in our new town for several years. This place, style-wise, is probably a decade behind. Women still have the big hair, etc. etc. - not my thing. I've been stylist shopping and haven't found the right one.

So done

Not with my marriage. Not yet

I am done with making sure H pays his CS on time. It's one thing to help your partner when they're doing whatever they can to bring home the bacon. H has been coasting with his hours too long and I will no longer sacrifice my kids' financial security while Medusa buys a Jag and M series BMW. I worked my tail off to climb out of poverty, traveling for work week after week. I didn't just get lucky and fall into a 6 figure salary!! 

YSS the food critic

No matter what I cook, SS has to point out SOME flaw. Or talk about how much better meals are at BMs house. 

Last night when I was getting dinner ready, YSS said "We have chicken here a lot, it must be because it's so cheap" and I pointed out that we had hamburger (sloppy joes, green beans and a salad, actually) the night before. And keep cooking dinner.
