I never said its my home to sell. I think your being really rude, and that you dont have the guts to even post this without being anonymous.
Im not the tenant, im the home owners daughter.
Im fine thats not even the issue, I just love that house and will miss living there, cant say theres anything wrong with being sentimental. Anyways, my dad has decided not to sell his house so he can stay near his grandson/ my nephew. But were still going to move out so he can have his space and we can have ours.View Thread
Ive replied to myself 5 times, will some one please reply to me!? Lol. Sorry.
Im so tired of working with the people I work with at times. They just irritate me, I MAKE SUGGESTIONs how to do things better or faster and they act like Im trying to restart the nazi haulocaust.
My life really isnt so bad, just my patience is thin, and I wish it was easier to calm myself. My life is actually really really awesome in comparison to some folks lives. I need to learn how to feel eternally grateful for things I have and I need to learn PATIENCE. Sure, Ive learned some, but I need more.
Cigarettes and beer used to be my answer. I have been doing so so so well, not drinking beer or smoking cigarettes, and have noticed many positive changes, but today I am THIS CLOSE TO going to the little gas station picking up a 12 pack and falling off the wagon or whatever they call it. I have already smoked a few cigars why not buy a pack of smokes! This is how Im feeling, but I know its garbage!View Thread
Jus focus on what makes you happy. Focus on making you better. Focus on you completely and mr right will wander into your life. When you find mr right, dont become consumed in him, take care of you, and keepthat regimen up, and you will never lose your mr right.
other people are attracted to responsibility and confidence, and anyone who is focused on doing the best for themselves will eventuall earn their confidence, and shine shine shine on.View Thread
focus on yourself not on others, when you are too busy making yourself happy is when a man of your dreams will find you. When he finds you, dont lose track of yourself again or you will lose him again, just focus on making YOU happy, and everything else will fall into place.View Thread
Awww darn I guess I can see where you are frustrated too!
You are worried he will not ever leave the nest completely.
Some kids it takes longer then others. Obviously you were a more responsible parent raising your kids you made sure they understood their roles in life. You fiance sounds as if shes been trying to protect her son from making mistakes. She needs to, let him make some mistakes. They can have a close relationship, but when it comes to business its time for him to take the reigns.
Maybe run this example from MY life past your wife and step-son and see if they might change their opinion or understand where you are coming from better.
I am a 25 year old female, I call myself pretty independent, ever since I was 16 I have taken care of myself basically. I never wanted my parents to coddle me.
I work at the hospital and there are FAR more adult MEN coming in with their mothers, and first thing that comes to mind is that poor boy isnt ever gonna get married if his mom keeps babying him. Their mother is asking questions about their penis, and medications and the son is just sitting there with his arms folded, and when I ask him a questions he cant even answer me himself his mom has to because poor guy doesnt know how to have a conversation with a woman, and I think its really unattractive. I am engaged now, but I was husband hunting a year ago, and 23 is my age range, and if I met a guy, who relied on his mother to do everything, even if he was really handsome, I wouldnt date him cause hes just like a over grown baby!
Maybe just tell her she needs to let him learn how to care for himself or he never will and leave it at that.
You might not be as selfish as I thought initially, maybe your wife is just getting offended before she can see the whole picture.View Thread
Im sorry BB! Remind me do you work or are you retired? When you wake up in the morning, open your curtains, let the sunshine in, if its not too cold where you live crack the windows and let a breeze come thru.
You might even have fun putting that grandson of yours in the stroller and cruising around the block a few times in the sunlight. If he screams bring some head phones and just smile and hum and wave at the neighbors ha ha
give yourself some fuN! it sounds to me as if youve been moping around the house all winter, thats why I love spring, cause you can get out and move with out freezing!
It will get your blood pumping, and it will brighten your day metaphorically and literally!View Thread
I think I say things, and they come out wrong, and Im hoping folks will catch on, knowing what I mean even tho things are coming out of my mouth not exactly as I was thinking, cause I think way ahead of myself before I speak... and umm.... I think that people take what I say out of context and run with it, and come up with a whole other idea, that is not even close to what I was trying to describe. Like with my boss yesterday I was trying to get the point across that there was no other possibility for me to get this done outside of work hours, and you know, what I do during my lunch break is none of her business, I can do whatever I want during my lunch break, and given the nature of the issue, I thought she would understand instead of telling me to break up with my fiance. I know I said I was thinking of calling off the wedding, but I was over reacting. I knew he had bad credit, I guess I just didnt expect it to feel so embarrassing when the realtor called and described everything he owes.View Thread
So I was 2 minutes late coming back to work from lunch yesterday and I missed this new meeting were having every tuesday called "huddle" because I had to get to the realtor to check out another key during my lunch because I get off work at 4:30 and they stop checking out keys at 4:00 so the only way I can actually get into look at a rental is to go at lunch, and I told my boss I was sorry about this, but some times you have to try and get things done during the work week, since most businesses are not open during the weekend, its really inconvenient for me to try and find a rental, cause if I wait too long some one else can apply and I lose my chances at a house I like. I explained all of this to my boss that I was very sorry for being 2 minutes late. She told me I shouldnt be getting married to my fiance I should rethink what Im doing cause hes causing me alot of hassle. She needs to MIND HER OWN BUSINESS!!!!!! I was gicing her a valid reason that I had to leave the building for my lunch and a valid reason for being late, and 2 minutes isnt a big deal. Like... she is making me crazy. She makes all these suggestions to me that are none of her business, I dont like her as a person, and her opinions about my personal life do not matter to me at all, so I think she shouldnt try to take my personal life and threaten my job because of it... she is way too nosey, I shouldnt tell her anything about my life at all, cause she uses it against me instead of being understanding.
She said "it really makes me mad you are doing this to me again after you did so well last year" I missed a huddle and was 2 minutes late coming back to work for lunch, because I had personal errands I was trying to attend to, and she is taking it personal and threatening me with me job again. I feel like she has been way out of line as my manager for years. I want her out of my personal business, I want her to do her job, and let me do mine,and stay out of my way. I wish there was something I could do to get her to back off for good. My days go wonderful as long as I dont have to speak to her...View Thread
Admitting it to yourself is probably the best thing you can do, that way you can let the feelings go. Maybe try to get to the root issue of why you dislike the realtionship she has with her son, do you feel neglected, would you like more of her attention? Maybe you should be more supportive of her son and offer your own advice and maybe get involved, and that way youll be able to spend time with her while she spends time with her son.
This is what Ive had to compromise with my fiance, I am much younger then you, and I feel the same about his kids at time, but its not because what hes doing is wrong, its me, and my youthful wants, I want to ditch the kids and go out on the town ya know. but thats just no okay, so i buckle down and deal.View Thread
