    I have resorted to appoligizing for being so neglectful and not appreciating things enough when all else fails. Some times this actually works and my hubby just shakes his head at me. This actually worked on the tractor last year after I spent like 2 weeks trying to fix it. When it's the computer, I usually just whine to my husband and tell him I don't know what I'd do without him.

    When I'm overwhelmed with anxiety and stress, I usually repeat a montra like "All is well" or remind myself "I can do this". If a little gas spills, oh well - oops - we've all done it! Don't stress over the silly stuff ... and it's all silly stuff - except for Baba of course!

    Yeah, when I'm in a foul mood, the entire world knows, mostly because of the expression on my face. According to SWG, it's my " I'm one idiot away from a killing spree" death glare and even he gets a little cowed when I'm in that mode. The man that, to my knowledge, fears very little, was afraid of me when I was in that mode. And he's a foot and a half taller and nearly 100 lb heavier.

    According to my sister, I scowl and can look pretty intimidating when I'm concentrating. (heavy eyebrows and somewhat deep-set eyes'll do that) When she gets worried is when my face goes blank. That means I'm MAD.

    Oh yeah- I forgot about the security guard at work asking me why I always looked like I wanted to punch someone. I figured the best answer wasn't "Because I do" and I worked on moderating my expression a bit more after that.

    DH said he was afraid of me when he first saw me. He said I was intimidating. But he also says the first time he saw me I was in uniform and quite honestly, almost everyone looks intimidating in uniform.

    Hmm, so is he one of those few, delightful men that find intimidating to be attractive

    (Women in a properly fitting uniform of most types do tend to have their attractiveness go up along with their potential intimidation factor IMO)

    The only uniform I've ever had to wear was school uniform in elementary school. Now, before you go running at the mouth about Catholic school girls-
    1) At the oldest, I was 12.
    2) I was by no means graceful or flirty. I was tomboy who'd kick you if you even thought about picking on me.
    3) These weren't the traditional red plaid. Depending on which school, it was either a yellow or white button up with a either godawful green plaid or plain green jumper or pants, OR a white button up shirt with an itchy polyester navy jumper, skirt, shorts, or pants.
    4) By district mandate, all skirts were no shorter than fingertip length standing up.
    5) I was going through my gawky, short broomstick phase.

    Geek and I both do kinda worry each other when the others in a bad mood because both of us look like we're one idiot short of a killing spree.

    Aaw- it must be nice to have someone that is more inclined to be worried in that situation than intimidated. When I intimidate people by accident it pisses me off because I'm NOT intimidating- which makes me more intimidating. Not pretty.

    So you're like those Asian school-girls. You know- the Anime ones that are all cute and stuff until they whip out a sword and end up surrounded by a pile of corpses?

    Today I am deeply confused.

    I don't want to write about it here until Boyfriend and I have talked.

    But I have to ask: how much of what is said drunk should be taken at face value in the discussion the morning after?

    Or afternoon after. We'll see when he wears off his drunk. I think I finally fell asleep sometime after 4.

    Things have sorted out. Apologies everywhere. Some sadness and tension at the apartment right now.

    So. Not quite the relaxing weekend I was hoping for. I am also incredibly gassy and it's super annoying and uncomfortable. I did, however, get a gift card for TJ Maxx (enough for some new underwear or a couple of new shirts if I find some cheap enough) and a nice check from my dad. I felt guilty accepting it, not sure why. Now I'm going to have to try really hard to just let it chill in my bank account and not spend it! It's enough for 1/4 of a tank of oil for next winter, or just under 1/2 of what's left on my smallest loan, but right now I just need to SAVE IT.
