I confess that this cold/flu/cough thing that has had me laid up for days now is making me super tetchy...

Which is why DH is getting moaned about....but I confess that I HATE soccer, I don't mind if you watch it, but do not be explaining the match to me, and STOP rewinding and replaying bits for me....I really do not care...

I'm also down with a cold and feeling like 40 pounds of crap in a 10 pound sack. And I made the mistake of talking to my roommate about me possibly buying a house. I think he might be the biggest instigation for me to buy my own place at this rate. At least then I can come home and not worry about there being a party in my living room that I wasn't asked about, getting woken up on Sundays by his GF's child hollering her head off, or finding his hung-over friends asleep on the couch after a night of boozing.

I confess I am to the point of giving up my lifes dream with horses, and wiping the slate clean dusting off my hands and walking away.. 10 years of fighting people and butting heads, to get to ride my own horse more than once a month, I can't do it anymore. I use the riding to keep me sane and off some meds, but people don't seem to care if I never can get out and see my horse to avoid the problems, especially my wife. It's not worth the stress anymore

As has been said before to you, you can't rely on other people to make you happy. You want to see your horse? Go see your horse. Not seeing her is on you, nobody else.

Story: I was contacted by an old college friend through FB, and then I called her and we were reliving our wild youth. I then went into the bowels of the basement into the dark corner where my college photos have been all these years, undetected by children.

Confession: I am SOOOOOooooo glad I was a wild child prior to fb and cellphones...lolol

Aww Gingerscout...don't give up your may regret it! But, I know the sacrifices one has to make to have a horse. My oldest daughter is jealous of my horse....I can't figure that one out. But my horse makes me happy so I refuse to give her up!

Gingerscout, I'm afraid I'm going to agree with Timwhit on this one. Every relationship is a compromise between 2 parties but each of those parties also needs "me" time. Maybe she likes to go shopping or get together with her friends or spend time doing whatever it is that interests her and you need to encourage her to do it. At the same time she needs to understand that you also need "me" time which involves you spending time with your horse.

Make up 2 books of coupons, give her one, you keep the other. Each coupon is worth an hour of "me" time. You two will have to sit down and figure out how many hours that can realistically be in a week. When one of you hands the other one or more of those coupons then during that time no honey do requests. If you need 2 hours at the barn then you have to cash in 2 coupons.

Where there is a will there is a way.

I can stay away from the kitchen for 23 hours, and the minute I go to start dinner he needs a glass of cold water, or hot water, or put on kettle, or he will just stand there and start talking about something totally random. Now I just say "are you going to be long" or "do you need to be there" !!

ok new one for the day.. if my neighbor does not fix his blankety blank Piece of Crap truck.. I am going to wring his neck. he has a older ford with a big block and no mufflers, he has to go to work at 3 am and loves to rev the crap out of us waking us up. He has newer nicer vehicles, he just loves to drive this one.. well apparently on the way home it broke down, so instead of towing it he decided to drive it home.. problem is its backfiring like a shotgun and stalling every time he tries to give it gas, he drove it through the neighborhood last night at 10pm, where it took him 20 min to go around the block and must have backfired 100 times, no joke. and he must have taken a day off work, because at 8 am when I got home he was working on the monstrosity again.. my dogs are wetting themselves due to all the booms, my daughter was scared to death to go out of the house to go to school, and its giving me a headache.. drive one of your other freaking cars, and let someone who actually knows how to fix a car look at it.. (believe me if you saw his mechanic skills you would see how apt that was). If I knew older carbs/ points etc I would look at it, but no clue

Do you not have "noise control" people you can call in to speak to your neighbours. 3am is totally unreasonable. Over here a car like that would get "pink stickered" which means it is not legally allowed on the road till brought up to standard and because 'pink stickers' are given by the police there is a deterring fine imposed if it is removed.

I think noise control is a council thing, you could make enquiries. Actually you probably should before you are tempted to do something stupid but effective *evil grin*. Do you want some ideas? lol
