I found your post to be incredibly judgmental! And I honestly have no idea what your religion has to do with a decluttering forum. My partner is neither unlovable or narcissistic. He simply was overwhelmed, which I have been for most of the last few weeks as well. After several weeks of having a house that is completely torn apart from packing and moving, he became overwhelmed. Which is where I have been most days, and he has been incredibly supportive, giving me long backrubs practically every night, not complaining when I go to bed at 8, doing the majority of the cooking in the evenings, supporting me in dealing with depression/anxiety issues, etc. The house was not orderly when he came home. It was a gigantic mess from packing, looking worse than when he left in most rooms of the house.
He kind of sucks when he comes to special occasions. Meh, it is something that frustrates me about 4 times a year. Wednesday night was one of those times. And he came home after running errands with flowers he had arranged himself- three lilies for each of our children, and a rose for each year we have been together.
Worthy- I think he is planning to do just that! Poor boy is sick on top of all of what is going on (I think mostly allergies from the dust we are kicking up!)
That property sounds fantastic! I love the idea of living in community with friends. Crossing my fingers that we can find something like that in our new city! I'm nowhere near wanting to buy though. BTDT! I'm enjoying renting for a while. Possibly in a few years once we decide if we are settling longterm in Seattle, or Chicago was more our speed after all!
Workdays seem to take too much out of me, so I doubt I will do much when I get home. Last workday until the move though!
Tomorrow we are going to get new tires for DP (before driving 2000 miles over mountains!), then up to visit his grandfather one last time before he leaves. Then going away shindig is in the evening, so we will need to figure out a way to make the house presentable for people stopping by. I have several bags full already of food for our friends to help themselves to that we won't be able to use, but that is already opened and thus not donateable.
Task list for today and tomorrow:
- File Change of Address form
- Do dishes
- Make meal plan for last week, put rest of food in tubs for friends to take
- Finish combing out dreads :( (giving up on them, my hair just doesn't take to them. sadly combed 2/3 of it out last night)
- Run a load of laundry
- Move empty boxes/tubs/packing supplies to back room
- Work on new apartment wish list on drive to gpas
- Post list of liquor that needs used up for friends to bring mixers for to the going away party (tehehe)
- Make living room, dining room, and kitchen presentable (easier said than done!)
