frustrations ahoy

so, as of this morning.. for an unknown reason, my facebook account has been disabled
i have contacted the facebook team.. and at this moment i think they were concerned with the updates from my phone for pictures.. sometimes i overload it and sometimes it takes hours and so probably looks like spam..
i am upset, but hopeful that it will work out

After last night.. I'm done..

Well, I should probably talk about some background as to why my mood was so crappy last night..

Mina was having a I'm making a mess and not cleaning it up time.. and I ended up yelling at her almost every 5 minutes for over an hour.. During which time Phoenix was exhausted because he didnt take a nap all day so he cried for about that same hour.. While I picked up their toys and folded 6 loads of clean laundry

She helped me carry all the clothes into the bedroom and upt them on the bed, and I was able to put away more than half when Scott came home and I decided to take a break (to see if the internet was back on, and if not (it wasnt) play a game of solitaire).. I lost my first game fast and started a second when he came into the room and started yelling about how she was throwing the clothes on the floor...

We got her to help me put them back on the bed.. and I finished putting everything away..

When i sat at the computer to nurse and put Phoenix to bed, I sat down and groaned to myself about the kids' socks that are here.. he went on again about how "it wouldnt be like that if you picked things up".. and how "the computer is your life".. "nothing ever changes".. "you let the kids trash the place and dont do anything".. "maybe I should take the computer away"..

I said that we hadnt had internet all day except for 2 short like hour periods.. so I hadnt been sitting here.. that I sat down right before he came upstairs to take a BREAK from putting away 6 loads of laundry..

He said something about how I shouldnt take a break and just do it all and get it done..

I told him that it's OKAY for me to take a break

He told me to stop yelling.. I said that I could yell if I wanted to and that he has no say over the level of my voice..

He said that this wasnt our house (NO SHIT).. that there were other people and I should be respectful of them

So I said "you dont respect me"..

After the kids were asleep I made myself a sandwich and sat on the couch to watch tv.. he came over and tried tickling me, smelling my feet... and cuddling.. That may sound cute to some of you.. but it comes with THICK sexual connotation and vile feelings for me..

After South Park (which was the passions episode LOL) I told him I was tired and going to bed.. so I did
He came in and after a few minutes of sliding up right next to me he asked me "why arent we humping".. I told him that I was tired and wanted to go to sleep.. he said something about how if he "didnt get any in a while" he would "get grumpy".. (rolls eyes).. After saying that I was tired (again).. I rolled over so that I didnt have to listen to him (my left ear is the only one that I have hearing in so.. if I cover it.. then I dont hear anything).. I could hear him muffled for a few minutes after that.. and I just said that I couldnt hear him, twice.. (I have no idea what he said.. but I'm sure that like every other time I have said no it ended up with that I was "being a bitch"

I know that since like the 10th or so when i first brought up being REALLY unhappy to him (this is the 3rd time I have been ready to move.. but only the 2nd I have said anything to him about it).. he had tried to be better, and was atleast using BASIC communication skills towards me.. for the first few days I thaught it was great..
Then I started timing how long it would take for things to go back to normal..
And now.. I'm done

Had a lovely evening..

It's Been A While : Staind

And it's been awhile
Since I could hold my head up high
And it's been awhile
Since I first saw you

And it's been awhile
Since I could stand on my own two feet again
And it's been awhile
Since I could call you

And everything I can't remember
As fucked up as it all may seem
The consequences that I've rendered
I've stretched myself beyond my means

And it's been awhile
Since I can say that I wasn't addicted
And it's been awhile
Since I can say I love myself as well

And it's been awhile
Since I've gone and fucked things up just like I always do
And it's been awhile
But all that shit seems to disappear when I'm with you

And everything I can't remember
As fucked up as it all may seem
The consequences that I've rendered
I've gone and fucked things up again

Why must I feel this way?
Just make this go away
Just one more peaceful day

And it's been awhile
Since I could look at myself straight
And it's been awhile
Since I said I'm sorry

And it's been awhile
Since I've seen the way the candles light your face
And it's been awhile
But I can still remember just the way you taste

And everything I can't remember
As fucked up as it all may seem to be, I know it's me
I cannot blame this on my father
He did the best he could for me

And it's been awhile
Since I could hold my head up high
And it's been awhile
Since I said I'm sorry

Brain cells = civil war

So, tomorrow we're supposed to go and look at a house at 1pm.. I'm excited, and nervous. 

DH has been joking a little about me "being in love" with his Uncle (married in).. I just went outside to say hello to DAunt (didnt know Uncle was there).. on the way back in the house DH said something about me not being able to go w/out seeing my "boyfriend".. and that DAunt said something about it too.. that I should "watch myself"


What the heck do they think is going on.. 

He's just someone to talk to, since no one else around here talks to me... 

<3 Elle
