First and foremost I want to give a big Thank You to my blogger friend Mrs. Muffins! She made my blog into a 3 column blog. So all the credit needs to go to her. Thank you so much!! This computer illiterate blogger owes you big time! I greatly appreciate it!!!
On another note, as I am typing up this post my resentment toward my hubby is growing and growing. Now before I continue let me explain...
My hubby's favorite thing to do is play Call of Duty on his playstation. Fine, everyone needs their hobbies and something to do on their down time but his hobby consumes his life. For awhile I thought it was cute the way he got so into his video games. Now I am scheming up ways to break the damm play station without him knowing I was the one that broke it
Here is why his video game addiction bothers me so
I work 11-12 hour days. I get up at 4:30, go to the gym, come home and let the dogs out before getting ready for work, feed the dogs, let them out again and leave for work. The hubby gets up at 8:30am, way after I have already left and does nothing with the dogs since I have already done so. He gets home around 3:00-4:00 and once again sits his butt down on the couch to get in some quality time with his play station before I get home. Another thing I should clarify is that he doesn't think the couch gives him the best tv watching angle while playing so he sits on our coffee table. Our freshly dusted coffee table has a perma butt print on it. Nice
So I get home aroun 7:00-7:30 and once again have to take the dogs out and feed them since they are still in their kennels because Daddy had to have his alone time. So after letting them out and feeding them, I now start on dinner. All the while I am doing this and I have barely received more from my hubby than a grunt hello. He barely tears himself away from the game during dinner and once again returns to the game while I'm left to clean everything up.
Weekends are the worst. I work Saturday's from 8-2:30 and have class on sunday mornings at 8:30am. You would think that for two days the hubby would let me sleep in even just a little bit, or take care of the gos, but nope once again I have to set my alarm even earlier just to get up and take care of the dogs before heading to work and class while the hubby sleeps in until 10:00 and then resumes his position on the coffee table. There he sits until I get off work and finish class and even then he barely wants to get off the game to go do something
Now I know I'm making him sound like a bad person right now but some day's I just can't take the video game addiction. Where is my free time, when do I get a moment to myself
This morning, while attending my online class I had two dogs jumping on me and knocking over my computer just to get attention. Tonight though my hubby really irritated me. Every time I see a kiddo, I have to write up a one page summary of our session. Seeing as I see 4-5 kids a day, I have about 35 session summaries to turn in at the end of the week. Normally I take my netbook to work and type them up during the last 10 minutes of a session but this past week, with constantly being at the hospital with my friend or studying for my exam I haven't been able to do so. So tonight I sat down to type up all 35. Now these session summaries need to get emailed to my boss, so as I go I attach them into an email. I was just about done when the hubby decided he was going to play his video game. Fine, since I was busy I didn't care. But today however, our router wasn't working so he couldn't get on his game. So I was the one who had to connect to a different network. If I would have been playing on the computer I would have been fine with it but since my session summaries are confidential documents I was uncomfortable with connecting to another network. When I said as much, M told me I needed to calm down and he didn't understand why I had an attitude. I explained that he should be the one connecting to another network since I was doing stuff for work. This just pissed M off even more. I gave up and connected to another network and finished my work with my hubby still making remarks about me under his breath
Some days I just give up. If he would rather spend time with his play station than me, there is not much I can do. I used to make plans with my friends when he sat around all weekend playing video games but he got mad at me for that, so now I sit home and end up cleaning, doing laundry, working or studying while he sits away and plays!! AHHH!!
Thanks you all for letting me vent. I really don't mean to bitch, I love my hubby to death but some days I just want to scream
And to clarify, we live in an apartment complex that includes wireless internet in their rent. So that if you don't want to pay for high speed internet you don't have to. So I'm not connecting to some one else's internet. I am connecting to the apartment's network. We do however pay to have our own network since we do need the high speed internet. So my hubby uses our network for his video games and I have to use the apartment's for my work stuff. Very frutrating indeed
Oh well, hope you all had a great weekend
