In this example it is someone who can't stop sabatoging his main romantic relationship. In each instance he keeps risking more and more. I get that we aren't hard wired for monogamy in our body. It is something we are taught is the expectation in a committed relationship. When such a promise is broken a world of hurt is unleashed. It is sometimes something that can't be forgiven or forgotten.
So why...oh why when the stakes get higher and you have lived through the complications of your stupid behaviour numerous times in the past do that same stupid thing?
I am always blown away when people give lip service to what they want but their actions are consistently not in line with their said desires and they have no self awareness to this disconnect in their life.
And why oh why do the people you engage in these behaviors with think they won't be victimized by this same action? Girlfriend if you are the one they cheated with and you become the next girlfriend...what makes you think it won't happen to you?
People...try dating, try dating a long time, try not living together weeks or months after you start dating. Don't rush. Enjoy time together and time apart. Oh and try not dating and get to know yourself.
To be honest when we got the news...we weren't the least bit surprised.
Last Wednesday we got a call that Sweetie's mom had snagged a spot to get her knee replaced due to a cancelation by another candidate. The appointment in the OR was for Friday. She said she expected to be home from the hospital on Monday. We gathered she had done all the rehab on her other knee that was replaced back in March or very early April and thus was ready. We tried calling her on Monday evening. No answer. Sweetie called this afternoon and learned some other details we didn't know about via his dad. Seems she is still at the hospital. She had badgered the doctor to get her second knee done because she thought the reasons she wasn't progressing with her new knee was because now that pain had been addressed it made the pain of her other knee more pronounced. Well she got her surgery but she is not getting her way with release from the hospital. Turns out she doesn't have the strength in her leg from knee number one to support the new knee number two. So she is going to have to work her butt off in some intense rehab in the coming days or she won't be going home. On top of it her husband is having some back pain of his own and therefore can't be of much assistance to her.
I say...line up some homecare before her release date so they can do a house assesment and put some schedule in place to help when needed.
Before we left a lady from their table came over to say that the reason they were closed is that the owners husband had just recently died. We sent our condolence. We had no idea he was unwell. So sad. He was a fantastic artist and we recently bought a black and white watercolour he did. We were glad to see she had a good group of five friends for support.
Today there was a message on our machine to call my Aunt A. as soon as we got home. We did. It seems my eldest brother, T's wife died today. It was not unexpected but we were never privy to the details of her ill health. I saw my sister C. back in Feb. of last year at my Mom's funeral and it was almost 10 years to the week that I saw her at my Mom's 80 birthday party. The brief bit of info we had on her health was from Aunt. S and Uncle G. when we shared a meal together back in mid August. There will be no funeral.
Despite getting waylaid by meals, laundry, and other details of life I still got out to the shop to play.
Thank you for bringing me the news of the day as your media mogul boss decides what is worthy of those pressure minutes.
I have one question. Why is it that you have the knack of finding a bystander or witness of a news story who uses the ear grating, "I seen it."
Writer of which we were gushing about ....Naomi Klein.
I recommend No Logo and The Shock Doctrine.
I will let you know about my response to her latest...This Changes Everything.
2. Getting through something doesn't mean it was enjoyable or that you would ever do it again willing.
3. People need to vote according their current state of personal financial stability not to protect the privilege of the rich just in case some day by some stroke of luck become rich.
4. Life is a minute by minute experiment.
Bedtime now as I have an appointment with T. for my should in the morning. I have a host of complaints for her about my body...I am sure she will set me right.
Tomorrow marks 8 years since we landed on this land mass of an island. We wanted to recreate the pizza on the floor of our dining area. Alas that is not going to happen as the local pizza joint is closed on Mondays. Okay, let us go to a pizza place we know has great pizza. Nope, they are closed on Monday. We though we might go bowling instead but the nearest bowling alley is closed on Mondays. We thought maybe would take a train ride...nope no scheduled events on Monday for that outfit. We have now cast our net further afield and found a bowling alley open tomorrow and a pizza place that has seating (it seems many are just take out joints anymore).
Two weeks in a row I have had the Saturday paper read by before Sunday was over. I attribute this to the Saturday paper in the summer time to be a tad slimmer and fluffier a read. There was a big article focusing on sugar. The one article was about trying to remove sugar from foods. Of course the problem being that the food they are trying to remove sugar from are processed shit food and pop. I just think the focus is on the wrong thing.
My Uncle G and Aunt S. were on the island to attend nuptials and so we had a good visit over lunch this past Monday. Uncle G. is just the best. Aunt S. was super relaxed compared to the last time we saw them.
There has been a brief reprieve from the heat but alas the heat is suppose to crank itself way up again for the next week or two. Oh wait. I just checked and it is only going to be super nasty hot today and tomorrow. At least there are some cooler days ahead but the humidex is still hanging in there on those cooler days.
Tonight is Super Moon. Anyone else going to have a gaze and watch the moon rise?
