[ - ] I am on overload today and sometimes my SN dc wears me down when they are firing on all cylinders. (Is this a Beatles song? How are they singing when you said John Lennon was dead? What Beatles are still alive? Why did Ringo's mom name him that? Did she like a lot of rings? Which Beatles played the guitar? Why didn't Ringo want to play the guitar? Why is Ringo still alive? How old is he?). I feel so bad like, "can you please just stop talking for ten minutes while I try to get this done" and their response is to pretty much keep talking and in addition now stand on their head because they are on a roll and can't stop. Then even after I lose my temper, and feel awful, I apologize and it's like no apology necessary, they etch-a-sketch everything back out like it never happened. "What Beatles song is your favorite mom?" I'm so lucky to have this child that drives me crazy. Please help me do better. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] My grandmother recently died and my boyfriend planned a weeklong vacation for us in Canada. We flew into Vancouver and he realized that he didn't know the name of the hotel that he had reserved. He also didn't realize that we would need a car; he thought that we would be fine taking public transportation. I was a little annoyed, but asked if he could check his email for the reservation. He claimed that he couldn't find it. Then, he said that we should just rent a car and he'd drive to the waterfront as he remembered that the hotel had the name "towers" and had ocean views. We drove to the waterfront, but couldn't find a hotel with the name "towers," but he claimed that he remembered that THIS was the hotel. We valet parked the car, walked in and of course, this wasn't the hotel. So, we drove around the city for almost two hours before finding the hotel. It was super frustrating. I became extremely frustrated and critical. I feel bad because he was trying to do a nice thing for me, but it's a reminder of how useless he is at planning anything. I feel like breaking up with him. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
