I can totally picture that and it's cracking me up

Orlando traffic is terrible, but NoVa puts us to shame. It's frustrating when you see people walking past you who are going faster.

YES.

First two weeks of Nov (1-14). The first weekend I should be able to do some stuff, the second weekend I'll be doing Thanksgiving with family, but the rest of the time I'll be good.

We need to do a cruise and/or hike/coffee thing. ALSO WE COULD GO TO THE MALL AGAIN! Not that I'll be buying things, but I can window shop.

Yeah, I spent waaay to much time in my car. 26k miles in one in a year. 11k miles in the other in a year when I was only using it half the time and had it shipped out here. People are amazed/horrified that I can sip coffee, talk on the phone, and drive a manual. I'll admit that it's not a good combo.

So when are you and Ian coming to Denver!? We need to go snowboarding and hiking. Or, you two need to go snowboarding and I'll try not to die. Yeah, that.

Would he be willing to do counseling? We have had counseling a few times throughout our relationship (mandatory pre-marital counseling before the wedding, and then another round through our couples Bible study group a few years later), and both times it's been pretty eye opening. I think we have a pretty solid relationship, but they've always found some things we can work on and helped us bring issues to light and discuss them with a neutral third party.

I'm sorry you're struggling

I let Brooks and Goose out to the front yard (fenced, with padlocked gate) for a bit last night while we were finishing a show (Brooks is in a "let's see what demand barking gets me" stage and the toddler was sleeping). They'd been out for approximately two minutes when They both started to bark. Since that's not common, and since I don't let the dogs bark outside, I headed to let them in. When I stood up, I saw that a car was stopped out front. This is not necessarily odd, because once in awhile, people will stop by one of the neighbors' but park in an odd spot. But, I did see that someone was out of their car. My husband quickly rushed outside, at which point the car took off down the street.

Now, perhaps someone stopped to speak to a neighbor (there were some people in the street a bit further down the block), but it was very odd and certainly unusual) Just in case, the dogs are on supervised pee runs only for awhile. I also realized Brooks hadn't been microchipped yet, so remedied that today.

Scary!

PS, he also isn't in your siggy. That should also be remedied.

My mom has confined my sister and I to the house tonight while she is out with friends... why? Apparently an older woman was murdered last night in a town about twenty minutes away, and they are still looking for who did it. Incidents like this are very rare around here, so it only makes the situation even more nerve wracking...

Karen - I think so. I already go to behavioral therapy twice a week, though, and he works like minimum 50 hours a week. It's hard to find a group that works with our schedule, and idk if we can afford counseling we need to pay for.

Things seem a little better today, but I'm not sure. The therapy I go to offers seminars for family members on communication/interpersonal skills, so I'll try to go to that, but I don't know when the next one is.

*sigh* Screw interruptions. Michael and I were finally able to have a long video chat and RIGHT when I broached a semi-serious topic his roommate came back from muster and we had to break off.

We haven't had an actual conversation touching on anything of actual significance since he left for RTC the end of July. Slightly frustrated.

Huck woke me up A LOT last night, so I drank something like 7 cups of coffee today to be awake enough for work. Now I'm nowhere near tired, I feel like baking but I'm missing key ingredients from pretty much every recipe I want to make.
