True Wife Confessions 94, Haydens Surprise symphony

Confession #931

I know why you won't move us back home. You know that if I get within driving distance of my family that I will leave you. And you are right.

Confession #932

The kids and I moved out and you didn’t notice. You called me at work 3 days later to see if you could deploy someplace tropical. You needed someone to watch the stupid dog. We were sleeping on our friends’ floors until we could save up enough money to get an apartment. You are more concerned about the stupid dog’s welfare than you are about me and the kids.

Confession #934

Why is it okay for you to spend $1000 a payday gambling and then lecture me on why I ran short of money this payday. You make more money than I do. I am responsible for everything but the house payment - even the kids Birthday and Christmas presents. At your insistence we have separate accounts. That is fine, if the bills are divided more equally. But, they aren’t. So, your kids suffer because you are a selfish person.

Confession #935

I have to confess -- I don't miss the sex at all. You weren't very good anyway. I haven't initiated anything during the past year for precisely that reason. And you haven't, either, so you must feel the same way. What a relief to be done with that. No more sex with you ever again. Yahoo!

Confession #936

Okay, so you didn’t like the dinner that I made tonight. Stuffed cabbage isn’t so bad. It is not okay to leave as I’m putting dinner on the table and go out to dinner by yourself.

Confession #937

finally somehere, i can finally get this off my chest. I really hate you, i never really loved you, you were my way out. After all this time i have hated every time you have touched, kissed me, caressed me. and finally when i find someone who wants me you will not let me go. you already now i can't stand why continue with this.

Confession #938

Let me start by saying that I have guilt over this and am not proud of it at all. That being said:

Last year when you were in the hospital and the doctors thought that you might die, all I could think about was finally being able to live my own life without you and how wonderful it would be. I thought about how I would spend the life insurance, how quickly I could sell the house and move, and what I would do with all of your things. Then you got better. There was a small part of me that was really pissed off at you for that. I don't hate you, but I know that if I tried to leave that you would make my life as much like hell as you could because it would wound your pride for me to leave.

The thoughts just keep coming back every time you get sick now. And I really hate myself for thinking it.

Confession #939

“You aren’t my Mom” is not the right answer for Mother’s Day presents. You, as our kids Dad, should help the kids make a card for me or help them buy a $5 bouquet of flowers. You had money enough to buy yourself a nice pair of tennis shoes, but not enough to buy a card and have the kids sign it. Oh yeah – you don’t buy your Mom a present or a card. Can’t use that as an excuse.

Confession #940

If you ask me to do something - I am all over it - Done! If I ask you to do something around the house that we both benefit from - why don't you just get it over with? It snowed! Take the air conditioner out of the window! Don't ask me to not leave you reminder notes. Notes work more often than not and I am getting so tired of you saying "I will!", but don't.

I respectfully disagree. Stuffed cabbage is one of those dishes that not everyone enjoys. Like liver and onions. Or brussel sprouts. I'd ask my husband before making a dish that isn't as universally appetizing as say, steak or lasagne or chicken breasts.

He shouldn't have walked out of the house. He should have said, "Honey, sorry, but stuffed cabbage? It's not my thing.Thanks for cooking, but I'll go make a sandwich and join you at the table in a moment."

939: Happy Mother's Day to you from everyone at TWC (respectfully, as I know they would agree) you deserve it. Why don't some men get that? Thank God my husband does, and he's a step-dad! I hope your husband gets it soon and you have your special day next May.

#940 - I find myself doing what your husband does whenever my husband asks me to do something. Horrible, I know...especially since he's the type who is just like you and does whatever (well, within reason) I ask him.

I've really thought a lot about why I do this and I think it has to do with control. Sometimes I feel like he's trying to control me with his requests and I guess this is my childish way of not letting him.

The last year or so, he's gotten fed up and has more or less done the same thing back to me and it sucks. I've seriously been trying to change my ways now that I see the other side of it.

Maybe you could try giving him a little of his own medicine? Good luck with everything.

Wow #936 if he's that big a prick about some dinner I don't want to know about everything eles.

I felt myself getting pissed reading that. I was really at a loss as to how I would have handled that. Probably not well.

I'll tell you all a secret. 939, 936, 934, and 932 are all the same guy.

As much as I hate the I called the lawyer today.

He still doesn't understand why.

#935, I totally know where you're coming from. It's been a few months for us. On the one hand, I am so relieved not to have to deal with calculating how long it has been, periodically giving in for literally 3 minutes of non-pleasure, etc. But on the other hand, I'm thinking, "Is this my LIFE? You've GOT to be kidding!"
