Resignation

One of the biggest changes in my life that will happen when I marry Treun is that I will be resigning from my job.  Treun makes enough money to support us and he believes that it is better for me to be home with the kids.  They went from me having always stayed home with …

Jury Duty….Really?

It was a month until the wedding and I had jury duty.  Really?  The universe just had to throw that at me right then? Treun and I still couldn’t get the guest list under control.  I was so stressed that I was ready to just run away.  We’d seriously started talking about scrapping the whole …

The Guest List

The guest list is where we hit a snag.  We’d decided that we could have 50 people fit comfortably in the house and backyard.  I don’t have any family to invite so I thought it would be easy.  The thing I wasn’t considering was that with friends and co-workers, I easily went right over my …

Simple is the Name of the Game

We’ve decided to get married in two months.  It’s going to be an extremely short engagement so we need to get moving on all the planning.  Once we picked our date things started happening quickly. Treun is so easy to work with.  I found a website where I can custom make our invitations.  We’ve decided …

Dinner Plans and a Surprise

Treun asked us out to dinner.  It was a particularly busy week at work and by Thursday, I didn’t want to go home and cook.  We’d been texting during the day and he asked me if the kids and I just wanted to go out to eat.  I really didn’t think anything of it since …

Making Progress

Today’s conversation: Treun: So, I’ve told everyone except Melanie about our plans. I’ve told my folks and both of my sons. I haven’t told Melanie yet because she’ll be the most sensitive about it. Me: Oh which plans? Fixing up the house? Treun: Our future together plans. We just have to decide whether we’re going …

A Business Trip…Again

Okay, these business trips are starting to get on my nerves.   Seriously. I’d been making plans with Treun’s daughter-in-law to throw him a surprise party.  Well, he’ll be gone that day so the party is off.  I’m rather bummed about it but I realize that he doesn’t have any control over these things.  When his …

Just Chugging Along

Liam had a one month follow-up appointment with his psychiatrist.  She increased the dosage on his anti-depressant because he was still feeling rather miserable.  He’d improved slightly but he still was struggling greatly. Work is still work.  It is hard and I’m gone from home longer than I’d like to be.  I still feel like …

Crisis Point

Things with Liam are really bad.  Really, really bad.  He is becoming more volatile and angry.  He is becoming more and more verbally and physically abusive.  It all came to a head the other day. Once again we were fighting about chores.  He has to do the dishes and pick up after himself.  That is …

Another Business Trip

Ugh.  Treun had to go out of town on business again.  He’ll be gone a full week.  I’m seriously starting to hate these business trips.  Well, it is nice for him because he gets to see his folks because they live in the same town his boss does, but I miss him. <insert pouty face …
