Well, today is Friday. Thank goodness. I’m not sure I could deal with another day of this week. It’s been a long one. Working for a bank at the end of tax season sucks the big wazoo. To say the least…
Anyhow. D&D game tomorrow. Looking forward to it. A simple game with simple plot, and lots of kill things-take stuff action. I like intensive roleplaying, but sometimes a person just needs the simpler things too.
Kinda frustrated with some other stuff right now. C’s been grumpy for a couple of days, won’t admit to it, and I don’t get it. I hate this. She always ends up passing a guilt-trip onto me without realizing it, then I’m sitting around feeling shitty while she muddles her way through to a positive attitude again. It’s happening quite a lot, and I can’t figure out how to get her to communicate with me. Starting to feel like I’m banging my head against a wall trying to get through to her.
Jacob is frustrating as well. He’s 9. I know he’s still a kid, but we don’t ask him to do much at all. Take out the trash. Keep his room somewhat sanitary (not even organized…just sanitary), feed the dogs in the evening, and possibly vacuum every other week when we don’t feel like doing it for the umpteenth time. Yet, every time he has to do any of those tasks, he pretends like he doesn’t know how to do it, hoping that we’ll just get sick of his whining and do it for him. The problem’s been made worse by him finding out he’s dyslexic. So now he feels like his excuses of not knowing how to lift a trash-bag out of the can, tie it, and drop it in the bin outside are waranted. Um…no. You did it just fine before you found out the word dyslexic existed, you can do it just fine now.
And then whenever I get upset with him, and lecture him, I’m the jerk-bad-guy. Both C and Jacob get upset with me, and I end up having to apologize. WTF?
Don’t get me wrong. I love them both like mad, but at the same time a little fuckin’ appreciation, and having someone see my side for once would be nice. And I don’t think it’s too much to ask for.
The car issue is rather frustrating as well. I’ve got a car now. Not the grandest of things, but a car. Now all I need to do is pay off the stupid state surcharge of 780 bucks or so, get insurance, and a license, and I’ll be set. All told….about 1200.00. Fookin’ wonderful stuff. Thank you Texas Safe Driving act. Sorry I was trying to keep my job and all. I’m a bad bad man.
