Today I completed planting all the flowers I've purchased over the past several weeks. I've been pulling weeds and grass from my garden, and today I cleared the last patch for the sweet peas I plugged into the ground. I still have some grass and weeds to pull, and probably a lot more flowers to buy, but now my garden is more delightful than derelict.

File this under bittersweet.
Signed the papers to make the separation official. She gets served on Friday, I sign more shit on Monday, then shit goes to the court.

It was turning a corner, no going back and I had to finally admit to myself I was never and will never get the love I wanted from her.

On the other hand my life is looking better and my stress levels have plummeted. I'm getting the back 40 in shape, baby steps, baby steps...

Everything gets better from here on out.

*I can see clearly now, the rain is gone...*

BigV 04-29-2015 08:56 PM

Fuck yeah!

Oh, and in other news I've dropped 30# and now weigh 190. My goal of 180 seems certainly attainable.

About those sit ups...

Whoa, nice job! Stress weight is a real thing, dump your stresser dump the weight.

Fantastic news.

Moving forward is good. Dropping stress/weight is great. FTW, foot.

I'm happy to have finished a week in Baltimore. I haven't posted in the Baltimore thread because everything I began to say seemed underwhelming. It was a significant week, however.

And I'm happy to have finished a week of networking and chatting at a national conference in spite of my hearing impairment. I'm not deaf enough to use signing but impaired enough to make every conversation a misery. I do lip-read as well as I can, but it's not just decibels. My hearing aids are ridiculously inefficient.

So, it's nice not to be embarrassing myself on a moment-to-moment basis. What I really need is a nice academic job where I don't have to hear people much. I don't know that the ADA will provide for me in my current job.

I've been wearing them for 34 years and I feel your pain. They just can't cope with crowds (3 is a crowd) and background like waiters or traffic make it worse. The increasing hearing aid commercials is I suppose a result of the boomers becoming a mass target. But the lying fuckers writing the commercials are real annoying.

orthodoc 05-06-2015 10:34 PM

absolutely. What I hate most ... missing the small things my kids whispered into my ears, or something a loved one says. They mostly know when I don't hear, but sometimes not, and I feel bad. It's so isolating, leaves you watching from outside a glass wall.

Like you, it's been a long time, since age 12 or before. Genetic, not noise-induced. Sometimes I'd rather be completely deaf ... just use signing and be done. It's like being severely myopic without glasses, but not totally blind.
