The dog days of winter

It has been a long while since I posted something so I figured I should get back into it. Our weather has turned bitter cold and we finally got some of that beautiful snow I had hoped to see. I look out the window and everything seems so peaceful and calm. Unlike the way I feel lately. I've been doing alot of thinking over the last couple of weeks and my mind is unsettled. I can't seem to focus on one thought and can't seem to sit still.

The holidays are over, which I am very glad of. Christmas was very lovely this year and I felt more relaxed than I have in the past 6 years. It was a good change. I spent new years house sitting for some family, which was fine, but I was ready to get back home by the time the weekend was done.

Now that I'm back here some part of me wishes I could run off and get away again. I guess that is how it always works. My husband and I are on a somewhat disconnected road right now. It scares me. With the cold and snow came him getting no work and being home. I feel like when he is here and I have to work, he could be taking care of the chores so I don't have to and so that they will be done for us to get to spend evenings together. He, on the other hand, feels like he should be able to do whatever he wants, which equals sit in front of the TV for 10 hour straight. I am all for lazy days every now and then, but doesn't it seem a bit unfair for him to sit in front of the TV for 10 hours while I work, then come to me and ask what I'm making for dinner? I figure dinner is the least he could do. But, I get up after my long day and stand in the kitchen and make dinner plus clean it all up. Not exactly what I wanted to do and of course by the time I get done with cooking and cleaning the day is pretty much over.

Maybe I'm just whiny and bitchy lately but I can't see how his mind tells him it is OK to act like this. I couldn't just sit and do nothing all day while he works and then ask him to make me dinner plus clean it up. Oh well. If all of this isn't bad enough, someone got a hold of my debt card number and made a counterfeit card, which they then took to a Best Buy store in a different state and made a $1000 purchase with. This is a big hassle for me because not only do I have to wait up to 15 days for my money to be restored, but I also have had to make several trips to the bank to fill out paperwork to get my money back.

On a more positive and happy note. My dog LOVES the snow. This has been his first year to really get out and play in it and boy oh boy is he into it. He runs around and kicks snow up everywhere. Makes me laugh and smile whenever I think about it. So, here are a few pictures of Dudley enjoying the white fluffy snow. These were taking over Christmas at my Mom's, but he has been at it again since getting new snow at home this week.

You're not whiny and bitchy. You're in a partnership. Right now I'm not working so the chores in the home are my responsibility. When I find work again, things will be divided up.

Okay, off my soapbox.
