Here I go again...

Well, I was looking for ways to not tell you this, but that would kind of defeat the purpose of this blog, so here it goes: HE'S AT THE CASINO AGAIN.

He says he only brought $4. He says he went to listen to the band, who was over with at midnight. But it's 1:15am and he hasn't called me yet like he said he would. I don't like this stuff at all. It's another way for him to spend money. I know he told me he traded in our aluminum cans today and got $25, so I imagine that he's "staying busy" with that....sigh....Things are really (in general) so much better, I just don't know why he's doing this (ok, the obvious answer is that he's still not healthy, still not right, even though he IS better...) and I am apparently powerless to get him to stop. I'm apparently going to have to have a tantrum to get my point across.

And DH told me that Jim has been acting like nothing happened. DH also said that he reminded Jim to fill out his paperwork again. I would put money on it not getting done. But Jim did elect not to go to the casino with DH, so who knows....I am sure ready for Jim to go. I think that the more he drags his feet, the more angry I am getting with him....I hope we can get him to leave before I end up being rude to him...

I really didn't want to tell you that. I wanted to tell you all the good things and forget about that. But since the bad stuff is kind of the core of this blog, it seems wrong to leave it out, LOL....anyhow, he DID get a lot done today....in addition to cashing in those cans, he got rid of a bunch of scrap snowblowers that were cluttering up the yard...and he worked on fixing the wood splitter and he did actually get out of bed.....ok, well, for him it was a good day....for a regular person, probably not all that wonderful, LOL

I guess I'll just remind myself again to "lower my expectations".

Thanks for being there.
