    I should add that there were a few (yes, about three) explosions in the four years I lived with her. Funny enough.. know how people say things when they're angry that they regret? I remember choosing each and every word I threw at her and knowing I meant every one of them. One bunch was, "I wish I never would have moved in with you!" And then I went to a neighbour's to cool off. For five hours. Helped that she had alcohol.

    GotD: Our office is very much feast or famine. Usually, we're in over our heads with the amout of work that needs to be done. Unfortunately, one of our big clients hasn't approved this year's budget yet, meaning a fair chunk of the office (myself included) are dead in the water. This type of downtime hurts me on my 6 month reviews because I'm not billable. I get tired of surfing MDA and the web after so long, especially since I don't DARE install Stumble on my work machine. I'll be glad when the budget goes through and I'll be able to make my billability.

    My husband is sort of like that. He's been diagnosed ADHD and has mild OCD (not diagnosed until adulthood -his brother jokingly called it the dawdle gene). I just have to make sure I get him moving about a half hour early.

    GOTD: Dearest father, beloved dad, man from whom I derive the brown in my hazel eyes- We're not wasting the tix that I got Geek for Christmas for a performer we've wanted to see live for quite some time to drive out to BFE east Texas for a funeral. I don't really give a fuck that it's my great granny. I spent a cumulative total of maybe 10 hrs in my life with the woman, and that includes 3 when she had no clue who I was. Funerals are for the living, yes, I realize that. From all I've heard, though, she'd rather us laugh and have fun for a night for which I saved up, than spend easily 9 hrs in the car for a 15 min graveside ceremony and turn around for the other 9 hr trip. That pig don't fly, Dad. Neither will that guilt trip.

    Thanks for your posts. It's a very very similar situation. And I'm trying to transition out of the household, because this isn't how I want to live. It's going slow, but going. But thanks again, it's nice hearing other people going/have gone through impossible crappy situations like this.

    Do yourself a favor and become your own savior.

    This is a crappy GOTD. Early low flow conservation toilets. I have one that it is a rare day when it does not need plunged. How much water is it saving if I need to flush it an extra 5 to 10 times to get everything sent to the sewer? But it is a designer toilet put in by the lady who lived here before us.
