I think me tapering down on the antidepressants has made me more feisty and I hope that's a good thing rather than bad. I woke up in an ok mood considering the Pristiq masks whatever pain your body has (w/me it's arthritis)and I'm down to taking it just every 3rd day now.
So, you know me and my TV. I love Family Feud and I was telling them that it has a new host. I know. Stupid thing to fight over, but it was just the beginning. I told gdil to change the channel and she says, I don't like Family Feud (which was news to me, she's always watched it w/me). They had some kiddie show on for the baby who only looks at it now & then. So I changed it myself. T was home also. She picks up the remote and says, lets just turn it off and does so. So I said, why, so we can all sit here and glare at each other? After a few secs. of silence, I turn it back on. She says I pay for half the cable. I said, No you don't. You write the check but you're not paying for it. Excuse me? Being married is a joint venture, blah, blah. To my surprise, T didn't back her. They always back each other and gang up on me whenever there's a conflict. And then she shut up. Didn't say another word to me and they left.
I could have said more. Like don't think I haven't noticed you're not pulling your weight around here. When she first came here, she loved to cook and clean. Now, she's already stated that she doesn't want to cook anymore. She left the kitchen sink full of dishes. I mean yeah, I can load the D/W, but we had a thing going where she would load, and I do the unloading. Lately she's leaving it til the next day. When she first came, she said that she couldn't stand having sinks full of dirty dishes. She used to wash the cupboards, clean the floor, and clean both bathrms. Now it's only "their" bath she'll do but I can live w/that.
This is all petty stuff but when my gs is working 3 jobs and doing college, while she sits on her ass & complains about my tv watching, I'm not taking it anymore! Sure she has the baby to take care of, but if I'm here, she KNOWS I'll watch him if she needs to do something. She just chooses not to.
And btw, this was the living rm TV we were fighting over, the one I just bought by myself (no halfsies here!) They have their own in their rm. The one I'm banned from. I should have said, You've already pushed me outta 2 rms in this house and I'll be damned if you're getting this one! But I didn't think of that then. Hrumph
