The Big THREE

Thursday, May 17, 2018

Well, my Spark went out completely not long after my last post. It's a lather-rinse-repeat cycle that rules my life. I get all hyped up and ready to JUST DO IT and then, something happens that completely kicks me off the road to good health. If I am honest with myself, nine times out ten, it's my husband. Yes, I said my husband. Let me explain:

He is needy. And by needy, I mean NEEEEDDDDYYYYYY...I truly feel like I have a toddler in the house at times when it comes to him. It sounds horrible, I know. But he is just...fragile? helpless? broken? I am truly not sure what the right word is here. Anyways...just when I am going good, on the right track, etc, etc,. he seems to have some sort of break down -- way down into the pit of depression he goes, and I have to "tend" to him. So hard to explain here, and not sure I really want to.

So between working, schooling, guiding my last kid through homeschooling, and tending to a fragile spouse -- I don't take care of ME. This is the most illogical thing in the universe of course, because if I don't take proper care of ME, how on earth am I gonna take proper care of them?

So this post is called "the big three"....why? I was sitting and enjoying my breakfast of cold eye round steak smothered in mayo and a bit of horseradish and thought to myself "damn, this is really good; I could eat this time and time again and it's so simple: meat & fat"....then I got to thinking that if I threw a bit of brussels sprouts or broccoli on my plate, I've got 3 simple ingredients, but a great meal: meat, fat, bit of veg...nothing more, nothing less.

Today is my birthday and today I will begin asking myself 3 questions before every meal: is it meat, is it fat, is it veggie...I know, know, it should have dawned on me a long time ago but hey, I'm a little dense.

    I can so relate: my DH has radar for the moment when I sit down with my cuppa, a book, or turn to my own project; suddenly he appears with all kinds of interruptions: tasks he wants help with, something to discuss, or plain old amorous expectations. Heavy sigh. Some days it seems darned disrespectful; other times I realize he is just obtuse and has no clue. Oh well.

    Wishing you fortitude to work your plan around these obstacles!

    Oh, I so relate to your situation! I have a hubby who doesn't like to be apart from me and hates it when I work on my own hobbies - ALONE! Definitely needy. And he especially hates it when I try to take good care of myself.

    I don't have any suggestions to offer, but I do feel your pain.

    Hope your special day is happy!
