Re: Can I just Rant a Little?

Consider this preparation for retirement! Hope he doesn't sit in the bar then.

@AuntG actually he is retired.  That was a huge adjustment.  And yes, he spends a lot of time with friends at the bar.  He developed that habit long before we got married.

This May he fell and broke his hip so he was in the house all day ...

nothing any woman hasn't done but this was my first experience

with a sick husband ....he couldn't even put the tooth paste on the

child so the leg was compromised to begin with ... well we got

through it ....BUT I TOO NEED A VA-CA !!!!!


@Big Joanie My husband had polio too as a child, but seems to have no ill effects from it.  He had to be in an iron lung.  I'm so sorry, sounds like this is 100x worse than my situation.  


Not to worry .. we're all in this boat together ....just need a place to rant every

now and then ....

The secret to a happy marriage is separate bathrooms.

Re: Can I just Rant a Little?

I’m sorry for you loss. However, as much as we miss our loved ones, it doesn’t mean we ever got annoyed with them. We are supposed to ignore honest feelings because someone might die . Again, I’m sorry for your loss, but this poster is entitled to her feelings without being shamed. 🌺

Re: Can I just Rant a Little?

Mine is pretty much like this all the time.  He can snooze after dinner in his recliner, wake up five minutes before the end of what I was watching, and expect me to find something he is interested in.  He worked out of town our entire 35 year marriage, so this retirement deal is hard getting used to.  When we only had weeends together, we were much nicer to each other.

Re: Can I just Rant a Little?

@halfpint1 is a very nice poster and I doubt that it was her intention to shame the OP. She was merely making a statement and expressing her opinion.

I promise to remind myself every day that I am strong, courageous, and resilient.
