Last night

If I could have afforded the plane ticket and the time off from work last night, I would have taken off for Seattle right then and there. Talk about a frustrating night. I only ended up with 3 hours of sleep before this morning. I guess I left work frustrated...but not about work. My folks left this morning to return to NC. But before they left they made sure to call me about a million times to remind me of little projects around the farm and update me on their progress. Dad wanted to tell me about a concern he heard about Deb from my aunt and uncle in California whom she'd visited with last year. So i went home apprehensive about how to approach that subject with her. Then when I got there, she was worn out and already in bed. The kitchen was a mess, clothes hadn't been folded. Papers were stacked on the dining room table. Simple things that i'm probably as much to blame for as she is. But damnit, I work and she doesn't. I know it's a bitch dealing with a neurological condition and menopause in your mid 30's but sometimes her lack of wanting to do housework just pisses me the hell off. So I went to clean out the refrigerator and found stuff of hers that should have been discarded a long time ago and that made my mood worse. She used to be the consumate neat freak and food safety person and that has gone 180 degrees in the opposite direction lately. She's happy to cook if she has the energy but I still get all the responsibility of cleaning up. I've asked her to do simple things like washing a bowl or plate when she uses it or not leaving oil in a pan on the stove and it will improve for a few days after I complain and then go right back to the way it was. i'd swear i was raising a teenager sometimes. she had a job interview recently and a good prospect at actually getting the work so maybe being more active outside the house will motivate her to keep things a little cleaner around the house. She kept getting up for a cigarette at various times last night and we'd have a little spat and she'd go back to bed. I'd be pissed and stay up a little longer trying to calm down and on it went for most of the night. We discussed some of it this moring and I told her when I got the kitchen clean this time we were writing down rules that both of us would be sticking to or else. Or else what i'm not sure but she agreed. So we'll see how it goes.

sometimes I think if someone gave me a more attractive offer, I'd take it.

Let's hope it's just a phase.

I think it's probably the low point of a cycle that hopefully will be on the upswing soon.

If I get it, I'll give you a call. I'll drop it off on my way to the deserted island I'm heading to.

My brother and some LJ friends I'd like to get to know better, I could have just as easily said Austin or NM but I'm planning to fly up to Seattle in late February anyway so it just came to mind. At that point, anywher but here would have been preferable. Thisngs are looking a little brighter today.
