trying to have a peaceful morning
Wednesday, May 05, 2021
good morning - my hamstrings are acting up. My DS came over with an excuse that he wanted his dad to help him get his lights working for his aquarium. I had other plans but DH did not realize that GD was coming too. I tell him who is going to babysit her when you are working with DS. He says I forget his wife does not watch GD anymore. So I watch her as DH & DS are working together. Both are milking the situation. DS wants to get relief from babysitting his daughter and DH b/c he gets obsessed with electrons. I watch GD normally I do not mind but this hamstring situation is a touchy one. The time turns into a couple of hours instead of minutes. The latest is that SIL asks DH to go to a ballgame in the evening I do not mind. But I know from past experience, my DD was not informed so when she finds out she is going to want to go to the ball game too. Who is going to watch the kids - not me. This became a problem a few years ago and it seems to be happening again. I just informed DH - I am not babysitting when you do something with our SIL. I truly do not mind him going to a ball game. I like being alone and getting things I like to do done. This isolation with Dh has not always been enjoyable. He needs to socialize without me and I need time to myself. DH I know will give in to temptation at a ballgame and I will have to hear about it. I just told him that he is near his goal and he needs to learn to socialize and not overeat. That is his big problem. He is the same on vacation. I lose weight and he gains. I am doing great in my program. I also worry about the virus at the ballgame. DH says he will wear a mask. Not everyone is fully vaccinated as he is. I will have a good day!
