Bud, what women did you have to deal with, your divorced?

I tried to watch the stuperbowl commercials without watching the stinkin game, but every time I switched over, the game was on. Now if I had wanted to keep up with the score, and I didn't, and I wasn't interested in the commercials, then commercials would have been playing when I switched over. I ended up spending more time watching the game than I ever have before. I probable saw at least a minute of the game all totaled.
Wasn't much on the idiot box anyway, so I went to bed early.

Saturday I spent fixing a bathroom sink, and half the time was spent trying to find the parts, and fighting traffic. "Oh, we don't have that in polished brass", so I had to drive to the big box store way up Dixie Dieway.

Sunday, after sending some projectiles down range to destroy garbage left on the berm, I went home and finished cutting up and hauling a hickory log up to the house for firewood. Sunday evening I hurt.

Lynn you forget, My ex lives with my Daughter.  She never really bonded with my daughter when we were married and showed (Still shows) favoritism toward my son.  She's been called on it numerous times but refuses to even acknowledge the problem.  Of Course my daughter has resented the treatment forever.  So it doesn't take much to set her off.  I got a call Sunday around 10 AM.  My daughter was on full overload and spun way up there.....

She vented and bent my ear for over an hour.  She was about ready to sell her house and move back into my basement so she could throw the Ex out.  Trouble is I agree with all her complaints about my Ex.

I don't want to see my daughter walk away from the house she worked so hard to get.  That and if she did my Ex would end up on the street homeless cause she only works two days a week.

That in itself shows where my Ex is mentally.... She "retired" at 56 cause the Post Office closed her Distribution Center.  Now she had always worked before with excellent attendance.  Now she can't seem to hold a job over 10 Hours a week and whines about having to work at all.  Everyone told her not to "retire" early and the amount she gets from SS ain't much because of how early she retired pretty much forces her to work but she doesn't want to.... after all she retired.... Angry

How in the heck did she retire at 56 without a disability?
If she's drawing SS then she is limited to how much money she can make in a month unless she's willing to give up part of her SS.

I understand your concern. Having your daughter and maybe your Ex move back into your house would be a disaster in the making.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

The USPS gave her 2 years extra credit towards retirement and about $20K to retire early.  all she saw was $$$
It didn't last 3 months...

Bad news is since she took it they won't rehire her...  She tired 3-4 times after she realized she was stupid.... went to interviews and everything then couldn't understand why they wouldn't hire her...

I use pictures and explained it to her but she didn't believe.  I told her to specifically ask and thats when they told her.... ( along with asking her to stop applying cause she wasn't eligible and was wasting their time while looking for new hires.... LOL  LOL  LOL.

Of course she got all bent.... to which I sweetly replied "I told ya not to quit, stupid"  Tongue

Tell your daughter that if she sells her house, she better be ready to buy another one because she's not moving back in with you. If she can't tell her mother to live buy her rules then she's missing a golden opportunity to set things straight with her mother or kick her out of her life; at least until her mother comes around.
Now the bad thing is that your daughter wont listen to you or will have a reason why she can't bla bla bla..... My sister did this
The big thing that she should get though, is that she is not coming back, and that she is going to have to deal with her own problem. It's time for her to put on her big girl panties.

Once your ex discovers that she can't leach off your daughter and can't live off SS, then she will either get a real job or live on the streets.

Compassion is a good thing as long as it doesn't replace effort for those the compassion is given to.

Actually I agree with you Lynn.  Except for three things.....  My Ex is simply incapable of logical thought, so she'll NEVER come around.  The other two are the grand kids....

Mornin gents.

Scrummy, when did you arrive in Loonyville?

Bud I figured your grand kids were your vulnerability. I have a friend who basically has gone through the same thing. Kids keep coming back home with their kids because they've made really bad life decisions. He lets them come back because of the grand kids. He is really not able to take care of all the kids, and as a result he spends a lot of time in court, arguing with the schools, and Child Protective Services.

Hi BF, I'd take a few days away in Loonyville no problem! Absolutely sick of London and work at the moment. Oh well, they keep paying me so I'll keep turning up!

I feel for your friend, so difficult with kids though eh?

Bud,  I think you and BF are overthinking it...... tell your daughter that you're fine with her moving in but that since she has left you enacted a few new "routines" that she may want to be aware of before she comes back thinking all's the same.

Let her know you now like to mow the grass in the nude as well as you won't dare put on underwear on the weekends and stuff like that

Good morning my fellow reprobates,

Well, the sun is shining and it’s a not unpleasant for the time of year at 43F and on the way to 53F.

It’s hump-day which is encouraging!

Mornin gents.

Hey Scrummy! You forgot to take your London weather with you when you left Loonyville. Raining and in the 50s and 60s with a flood watch. It's foggy too.

Bud, it's seems to me that your not trying hard enough. May I suggest you start a school for sheep on how to be a HO. You already have lots of experience.
