We went to a great Mexican place that was in a couple of villages over. The gal made a roasted veggie salsa for us at tableside which was really yummy. The grilled veggies had such nice flavor. And the friends we were with are fun to be with. I indulged a bit with two Negro Modelos. My girlfriend is type 1 diabetic so she can only drink one beer. But our men put away too many margaritas! My DH wanted the party to continue and asked the folks, who are neighbors to come back to our house to continue drinking. We had already been together since 3 in the afternoon and the good news is she likes to get her DH to stop drinking so she wanted to take him home. So they went home. Then trouble happened....my DH continues to drink and always gets weird. I ignore him and go inside and get on the computer. He turns his son's CD(which is good) up really loud and listens to it for like the millionth time. It drives me crazy. Then he came in and told me he was going to leave this week and go to his other son's house in Seattle as he is bored here. I said "Go"!!!! he is driving me crazy anyway. He said he doesn't feel useful and can do projects at his son's house. Some men just don't do well in retirement. He doesn't have any hobbies and doesn't like to read like I do. It will be nice to have him out of here so that I don't have to see if he will be in a good mood or not each day. We all know that we are responsible for our own happiness. I am basically a happy person. I always look for the positive. I have my little hobbies. I get more than my 10,000 steps in a day, I read my kindle, watch my TV shows, play with kitties and dogs. Go to art shows, took a painting class. Anyway, I do well with retirement. I finally have time to do those things. And especially watch TV which is something I never had time to do. So yes, I do watch a bit too much but I am not going to let him make me feel guilty for it. I earned this time.
Gosh, didn't mean to turn this into a rant. Sorry.
But I will be happy to have him gone now for 3 months. He can go off and be with his one son in Seattle and then go off to PA and be with the other son and grandkids. Adios!
And why do people who drink too much have to get you all upset at bedtime???? I couldn't sleep last night obviously! Will be a long day.
One a positive note, the sun is shinning and I will walk the dogs and just breath in the fresh air!
Hope all my sparks buddies have a great day.
