You are here

Nope. So DONE with 'YSD Meetings' being added to my calendar. Nope, nope, nope.

I swear this college hunt / decision is going to be the death of me. 

It was YSD's weekend this weekend...but this week is her Spring Break, so I'm imagining she'll still be lazing around my house when I get home this afternoon. What sadist put Spring Break the week before taxes are due, anyway? 

So, I get to work today and I see a ping on my phone calendar. I check and it says: 'YSD College Meeting / Tuesday, 7:00 pm' and it was all I could do to keep from hurling my phone against the wall. 

Seriously, we've talked this issue to death, and I have zero desire to see YSD Tuesday night for any reason, much less to talk this decision through endlessly for another 2 hours. I would like it if zero more of my life was spent on this...I have nothing left to add and have spent too much time already. 

I think the issue is...or, DH told me...that YSD got accepted into another, closer school, but that both BM and YSD were being 'cagey' about what financial aid is being offered. His supsicion, and mine, is that she got offered more and doesn't want him to know. He claimed he was going to sit down with YSD at some point this weekend and ask her to sign into the accepted student portal so he could see the offer. They had plenty of time to do so while YSD was lying around in bed and on the couch all day yesterday or watching a movie with DH while I did the week's grocery shopping and prepped meals for the whole week. But it seems it didn't happen, and now we're dragging it to Tuesday night and involving me for some reason. 

How do I politely tell DH I'm out now? I have no desire to endlessly meet and rehash this disucssion and listen to YSD blather. It's such a waste of my time...and we really, really don't have the time for it, this week in particular. Neither of us has the time. And what was so hard about sticking to his simple, straightforward plan...logging onto the portal with YSD to see the offer? 

Frankly, if YSD wants to take out a huge loan to go to her dream school...that's her right at this point. Not sure what DH is hoping will happen.

Plan something else for Tuesday at 7pm. Dinner with a friend in need, emergency work meeting, short bout of the plague...

lol.

A plague shouldn't be too hard to manage. I can't seem to shake this seasonal congestion as it is...

I recommend a purple eyeliner to "tint" some purplish dark circles under your eyes to emphasize your suffering... Diablo

Yo Hon,

~YSD was lying around in bed and on the couch all day yesterday or watching a movie with DH while I did the week's grocery shopping and prepped meals for the whole week.~

And you should spend time concerning yourself with her problems? Oh, puhleeze!

Precisely. 

Sometimes DH acts like my time is an unlimited resource and should be spently primarily on him and his spawn.
