What kinda girls? I need more info to get properly pissed off.

Don't ask questions that would lead to even more outrageous statements in the interest of furthering a blatant troll. It's bad forum etiquette.

I'm sorry to hear that, dude. :(


So, if I can get an stipended internship, I think I'm going to take a semester off.

Don't do it. Even if you only take one class to keep your toes in the water.

Yesterday the doctor said that I only have to come back every other week now, because I am so awesome.

Also to start using just enough packing to provide a drainage channel.

I am seriously fucking sick of the whole F5 and "nobody's posting, everybody's viewing" thing. I would like to burn it in the face with a sharp shitty stick on fire.

Sorry guys. I just find it deeply whiny and offputting and it kind of makes me want to go find something else entirely to do. Which is exactly what I'm off to do now. Bye.

I don't see how the F5 thing could be construed as anything but tongue in cheek.

Clearly, if we are bored to the point of complaining that there is no content being posted, it is because we ourselves are not posting any content.

Marital situation seems to be evolving from 'if' to 'when', which isn't very fun.  It's only complicated by some very concerning behavioral health concerns.  She has point blank said she doesn't want to be an adult anymore.


We see a counselor tomorrow, but I'm not really optimistic at all.  I'm now looking at what can I do to keep the house and keep my kids' home as intact as possible. 


Despite all of this, I'm not nearly as sad or upset as I would have thought I would be.  I suppose that's telling about the nature of our relationship.


And so the saga will continue.

I can understand she doesn't want to be an adult, but she's got this bundle of genetic code called "children" that doesn't give a shit what she does or doesn't want.


Apparently that doesn't mean anything.  She basically wants to be able to have Saturday Night EVERY NIGHT and have the kids.

Sucks dude. Really hope things work out for you one way or the other. Hopefully its just a bit of a thing and not a HOLY SHIT OF A THING.

So it's tongue-in-cheek annoying whininess. It still makes me feel like turning off the computer and walking away. I'm sorry, am I not entertaining enough for you? Am I too busy? Am I too tired? I know, I know, it's not directed at me, personally, it's directed at those other people who aren't good enough. Whatever. I don't care.

It's still about as fingernails-on-chalkboard for me as that whole Happy Tree Friends "I'm a brat and that's cute" thing.

Anyway, it's been increasingly irritating the fuck out of me for a while and I am finally crabby enough to say so, so I did.

Yeah, you're right.

I have lived through this. And I have no advice for you. Although that phase seems to be dormant for us now, it's obviously lurking under a thin layer of inconvenience and pretending it's not there.

If there's any wisdom I could offer, bearing in mind that I myself have not followed it and it's entirely possible I'm wrong, it's that you should strive to maintain your sanity and your happiness, not your situation. When those things are at odds, it's the situation that has to go.
