Paid a visit to Home Depot to pick up order - tankless water heater. Took the Mrs. along as she had some packages to return to AMAZON. There is a UPS store nearby for returns so you don't have to pay return shipping. She returned the last purchased sewing machine along with some other stuff.
Total conversation - other than her in a very raised voice saying accusatory things to/about me - less than 10 minutes for the 4 hour trip. I walked around the store trying to remember list I made - and left home. Drive to/from is about 30 minutes if no wrecks. Her: Mopey face and attitude for the whole time.
Leaving the critter to self-steam till tomorrow and then something will happen. No guessing from me as her thinking makes little sense to me.
Thinking back to Tuesday morning after she came in from picking up stuff tossed outside, she said she was only helping a poor soul that reached out to her. And I thought to myself - ya, so you did.
And did so without giving a thought about me. I like
being at the wrong end of the line. Right -
"What was her excuse for leaving at noon and not getting back until sunrise that you mentioned? "
repost from #71
"I was very wrong for not trying harder to contact you when I figured out his girlfriend was not going to show. I should have left and told him to contact 911 if he ran into any problems. I didn't. I sat on the sofa with two dogs and a cat. If that makes me a cheating **** then I guess that is what I am. You can tell your friends you took care of it. You made it plain that you were fed up. i will be out of your hair as soon as I can find a place to stay or in the car if that isn't suitable."
I don't interpret that as an apology or an honest reason to not have called and SPOKEN to me regarding exactly what her intent was.
As someone has already posted - She does what she wants without giving me, her spouse, any or much thought.
Right now she is on phone with brother talking like life is all Daises and Warm Breezes.
I don't eavesdrop and she goes into another room to chat. I can hear her tone of voice.
I feel my BP rising as she is starting to act (a bit) like "Just let him fester on it for a few days and we will be back to normal."
One good thing so far - she hasn't started bringing stuff back into the dining room.
And another wonder - years ago we each got a 7inch Samsung Tablet from Verizon.
I have been looking for a few months anywhere I could think of to find one of them and make sure
it got charged - battery maintenance. When I asked her for help - I got dismissed her claiming we never bought a 2nd one.
She cleans up the dining room (I didn't toss ALL of the mess) and it magically appeared.
Open to any reply question:
I think she is losing her cabbage and I would like her to see a mental health doc. How to broach that subject? To me to attempt is likely to have the same result as trying to pet a wild Leopard. (she keeps nails long enough to do major damage)
I reread all the posts and likely will review again later this week.
I get the message I have to SXXX or get off the pot. And I have been a wuss.
