Hi,

At one point he asked me if he could have a buddy over for Thanksgiving. I told him that Sunday will be too late to place an order for a cooked bird like he wants. Those orders had to be in weeks ago. I started to offer to cook a fresh bird for him but he had a problem with that.

Then I told him No Guests were allowed in the house this holiday. He and his buddy can go to a restaurant or do whatever else they want but they cannot do it here.

I thought we worked this out a month ago when he said he absolutely did not want to do Thanksgiving. Then Saturday he wanted to entertain the idea. He is exhausting.

I've had my moment of temper at work too, Mari. One about a month ago. It seems like I can't stand up for myself unless I'm angry. Or mybe I refuse to. Hmm. I'll have to run that by my new therapist on friday. I hate it because it's so embarassing the next time I see those people. Hope all goes well for you.

Memo to all fellow human beings:

The holidays are stressful enough. Holidays are not the time to start making last minute plans.

When people make last minute plans,at causes anxiety,and fatigue. I worked at a supermarket for just under 14 years. It strained us,and the customers where dreading Thanksgiving,and Christmas because it made them so busy.

They said to me that they had a million things to do. I hear the same thing where ever I go. In the 20th,and 21 century,it has become a shopping event,and pressure. Then things calm down after the first of the year. BF

My Mood:
Question Weird Stuff -- feel good right now

Hello,

I am in a good mood.

What is happening??
I have racked my brain to think through what I am doing that is different. This is all I have to work with: three hours of sleep last night and a slight change in the weather -- a slightly cooler day.

What is it? Can this persist?
