It all came to a head Tuesday night.
I get really amped up and have been for a month with SS there, the COVID, work shutting down and my crew the only ones on sight and me in charge of millions of dollars of equipment in the data center and I'm just a supervisor and all alone (I have an 8 person crew so they are a huge help) keepiing it all together.
That was quick. Turns out BM's running into issues finding a babysitter for the weekend..... Oh really You mean with a pandemic going around you can't find anyone to take take kids? You you're dad who's immune compromised won't just take them and if you're sister who lives with him comes to watch them at your house he won't let her back in his for 2 weeks? Step dad's elderly parents won't keep them either? Your friends are either working also or don't want to risk getting their kids sick? Well too bad.
So Chef is being more of an asshat than usual... which even for him is a high-level to attain. His business has slowed down quite radically and instead goes to work on the rental. Meanwhile, I work remotely from the rental with a caulking gun in one hand and a mouse in the other.
He ran into an old co-worker from 5 jobs back who recently lost his wife to Hodgkin's lymphoma. Chef personally knew his wife as well because she was the nurse who delivered his 3 ferals!
Just taking a poll - was anyone really sick in December/January with COVID19 symptoms?
So remember how Little Idiot went through the whole rape thing and we had to pay for her friend to come visit from Florida for "moral support" because she was just oh-so-traumatized?
Well we just found out prior to this that this friend had been in Peru visiting family right before coming to New York. And now this girl arrived SICK. Coughing, sneezing sick and she shows up on our doorstep. Wonderful. This was around mid December.
Received an email from a full grown yet 20-something Sheriff Deputy who spilled an amp energy drink on his specialized laptop. He was supposed to drop it off yesterday morning as he works the C shift. I went into work even though I'm not scheduled to call into work at all now and hardware issues are being set as a low priority.
I have 2 kids with my husband and we both have 1 kid from previous relationships so we have 4 all together.
My situation is a bit 'unique'.
Long story short, I've been in a blended family for about 3 years. I brought 3 kids into the equation and he came with 2. We both have our kids full time, minus every second weekend when they are with their other parent. My fiancé and I fell in love, so we decided to move us all in together. We uprooted our kids and moved out of the city into a house together. They all went to a new school, in a new place away from our families. That was a huge mistake, one I didn't know I was making until after I made it.
Okay, so I have a bad history with men. Lots of abuse. Lots of infidelity. However. I've always been loyal (even when they didn't deserve it) and I don't just walk away from a relationship easily. But. If I leave. I'm gone for good.
So here's my delema. Im trying to figure ME out. And my feelings.
I've been with my FH for 6 years. definitely had our ups and downs from finances to detoxing and drama and BS. Its been a rough road. He's been diagnosed manic bipolar 1. Back in 2017, and some days it's like I switched men. He can be a completely different person.
Interesting article about the amount of divorce fillings happening in China since their quarantine has been lifted...
It rather surprised me, I would think going through what I consider a life/death experience with the one you love (and whom is supposed to love you) would bring the couple closer, you know, like in the movies. Guess not...
Little idiot is still happy as a pig in you-know-what. The best possible thing that could've ever happened to her has happened - she gets paid to stay home (actually will make waaay more money via the stimulus checks) and lay in bed all day! I kid you not this is ALL she has been doing for the past (three? four? Five??) weeks now. She lays on her bed and watches TV and occasionally surfs Tinder. I can't even keep track anymore of how long it's been. It feels like it has been an eternity and there is still no end in sight.
