Things are dealt with...we talked through it for a solid hour and are both content with the result, but still...

that was a fucking terrible, terrible feeling.

Seriously, I think from now on my knee-jerk reaction to anybody that has a fight with their significant other is to immediately offer to buy them a beer.

It is such an awful feeling.

Well, such is the nature of two people who are committed to a future together.

The "work vs. her" problem is really thorny though, IME. I've gotten myself in that argument on more than one occasion.

Same here. Actually have one simmering at the moment.

My dad was pretty bad at times, just a ferocious temper - but you really had to push him. Some Mommie Dearest moments in my childhood, which I'm careful to avoid.

BTW, since we're talking about relatives and the Holidays and Things Pissing You Off - I think Ive had quite enough of my younger brother. He didn't ruin Christmas for me, but he sure made it unpleasant for my parents, and I'm not about to have my daughter exposed to his shitty mood swings, petulance, entitled attitude, and anti-social avoidance. Fuck him.

Incidentally, I was reminded of a comment from a friend about family being less a biological determination and more a matter of shared values and priorities. I kind of identified with that.

That really would be a miracle! I wonder how the twins would get out?

those really wide side-by-side strollers for two kids piss me off. they tie those motorized conveyances for disabled (read: really fat) people for the win in the category "super inconvenient and inconsiderate inventions that you're not supposed to complain about"

Hi.

Know what you mean. You see some fuckin thing advertised and then just get fucked about. Time to get the boots and braces on and kick some ass.

Hounding clients for money. I did a guy a favor by letting him pay his fee in two payments (something I should have learned a long time ago not to do) and he decides to leave town today without paying me. ffffuuuu.gif

I needed that money too. cry.gif

Inorite? Worst thing is, it was actually due yesterday and I was going to call because I had a feeling this was going to slip his mind, but I thought, "nah, give him the benefit of the doubt and call him in the morning if you don't hear from him today."

Mostly mad at myself, though. The next time someone can't pay the whole bill upfront I'm just going to tell them to stuff it.

I know people are going through hard times and I try to work with people, but when they don't respond to calls and don't make any effort to pay any amount of money I have to cut them loose.

But the holidays have just started! I still have some of my prime eating and drinking to accomplish.

Not even a thing that's pissing me off at this point-- just something I'm glumly accepting as an unpleasant part of my life.

Good luck to you. I had to scold my Mom again yesterday for behaving like a child, overreacting and claiming I was neglecting her. Fun times.

I spent three hours at the gym this morning to atone for last night's meal and drinking and to get ready for a bigger meal tonight. Though, honestly, it was more about escaping to have time to myself away from relatives. It was glorious.

Heh, same here, J2. Did three miles on the treadmill and some light weights. Was going to go farther but I need to go get fitted for quality shoes. Left knee, which is my good knee, started kicking so I went down to a fast walk and no incline.

Think I might need to fast a day or two between Xmas and NYE.

I'm at work.

Good news is I broke out the secret bottle of bourbon every attorney has in his lower left desk drawer. Every attorney. Cheers.
