Hubby did apologize and we seemed to be okay as a family. We went to our favorite bar for dinner and a Mexican hot chocolate, then headed to BFF's improv show. At first the people around me were giving me a headache and I was regretting coming. The intro to BFF'S new boyfriend was awkward and quick. I trolled on tumblr until the show started, so my phone battery was down to zero. After we all went out to eat and to a bar it loosened up and I felt much better. I think everything is going to be okay. We just need to find a balance of work and play.

Tell Me What to Do

Today seemed okay at first. My sister and Hubby and I went to see Annie. It was cute and I think the reviewers are too harsh about it. It's charming.

Then we got food and came home to mom in a bad mood, and suddenly hubby decided that the whole kitchen counter needed to be clear for him to cut the cut the chicken we had just brought home. He started dumping things into the trash, and I just bailed. I knew it would upset mom, and it was a move my father would have made, so I saw the fight coming. What I didn't see coming was hubby losing it on mom completely. He asked her why she had "made" him quit his $47,000 a year job to move in with her so that she could treat him this way. He stormed out of the house without his phone and was gone for an hour. 

I started texting his brother worried that he had just decided to spend the night there, but then he walked in the door. He still wanted to leave, but I got him to talk about it and stay.  He said he'd apologize to mom, but she didn't want to talk about it tonight. I said we'd go over it along with some ground rules tomorrow. 

I can't take a side, but I've got to take a stand. I just don't know what I want to do.

Family Hanukkah

This was the first night of Hanukkah that my sister, hubby, mom and I could all spend together. Since we had given away one of mom's couches to make room for ours, we spend the day going to the storage facility and getting ours assembled at the house. It looks good, but there are still some cleaning that needs to be done so that the room looks good.

Hubby made latkes and we went to see this amazing house. They had synchronized their lights and had dimmers and the whole nine yards. This was the end of one of the songs

After another blowout with the hubby and mom, I got to go out for my first round of socialising since moving back. My best friend A and I ran a few errands and then watched Love Actually at her house. I was so tired that I'm afraid I wasn't much fun, but we made plans for Friday/Saturday to meet her new boyfriend and go see her improv show. I told her about my blog idea for the official state drink, she seemed to think it was cool. I'll have to get on that at some point.


Our errands list keeps growing and I feel like it will be a long time before we get jobs. The one job that asked me for a phone interview this week never called back.

I did get some clothes out to goodwill and put away in my closet, so it did feel like I got more done. Of course with it being much colder and darker here earlier, it's hard to keep motivated.

Energy Crisis

Hubby and I set out around noon to fix everything on our list. We drove my car over to get all weather tires, went to go eat, went to another store and walked out because the line was too long, then mom called. She wanted to complain about how her friend wasn't calling her back to take away her couches so we could move ours in. I told her to do what she wants and let us know.

Then we changed our address with the bank and got really tired. We went home and I started on the Holiday cards while hubby went through a few boxes of clothes. overall a semi productive day

Boxes, Boxes, Everywhere

Mom wanted to run some errands today that basically took all day to complete. We had one meal but I shouldn't be eating that much anyway. It was a full on carb parade while we were moving, and I needed to get back on track.

I woke up with a yeast infection, due to the high stress of moving. Of course that medication was in a box, that was thankfully in the kitchen and not in storage. 

We ended the day pretty early due to a snowstorm that no one knew was coming. I've got to get all weather tires tomorrow before the winter seriously gets started.
