Seems like this community has died, so I'm just posting to say thanks for existing period. It was a good idea and I'm kind of sorry it died, but I'm glad none of you have a reason to post here these days.
Well, I'm not honestly sure if this is allowed in the rules (if it isn't feel free to delete it and sorry) but I found a livejournal community I think could be of interest since everyone here is intelligent. Has anyone ever applied to a rating community? I do for fun sometimes because they come up with the most amusing reasons to reject you. It gives me a hearty laugh. And apparently I'm not alone. lol_internetz
It's a new community so it doesn't have many members yet but it looks like it could be really amusing. I thought some of you might be interested. If not, sorry for cluttering your friends page.
Hope everyone is doing well.
Ladies:Would you be upset if, while living together and being sexually active more than twice a week in a committed relationship, your boyfriend watched porn without you?
Would you, while living and being sexually active more than twice a week with your girlfriend in a committed relationship, still watch porn?
There are no right answers, only a running tally. Responses are appreciated. Thanks muchly.
I maintain a right to post here. ^_^
Hard to believe it's been almost a year since the last time I posted here. I might not have any right to post here soon since my relationship is doing rather badly at the moment, which is my fault, but nonetheless I'm terribly upset and hoping desparately to fix things. There isn't really a point to this post, I was just sort of wondering how everyone else is doing. Hopefully this finds all of you well.
I haven't posted here in a while, it looks like no one has in quite a bit. Where are you girls? :)
I am slightly freaking out. My husband is working at the same club that he's been with for around a year and a half. He's the Audio Engineer there. He keeps getting offers from bands to "go on the road" with them. It's a little disturbing every time. But.... last night when he got home he said the band he had was begging him, the band, the crew, everyone involved with them. They tour nationally, so he had to say no. He told them that we have children, one of which is only 14 months old. He grimaced when he told me they offered him a thousand dollars a week, post taxes. He's making just over half that right now. Money's tight, but we are "suffering for our art" so to speak. I know he wants to be able to do more for our family, and I know that he would love to have a tour to put on his resume. I'm torn between feeling like we are holding him back, and feeling relief that he feels family ties as strongly as I do.
In the meantime, I feel very guilty because he knows how I feel about his job. I wonder, and almost certainly know, that my feelings were a large factor in his decision. I ABHOR his schedule. When the club is heavily booked, and it usually is, the children don't get to see him very much. I have the main parenting role, and if I get sick he can't stay home to help out. He is the only person who does his job where he works.
Wow. This has turned awfully *rant*y. Sorry.
I mainly posted here because I wanted to express my worries, and maybe get some feedback as to whether I am being completely irrational. *sigh*
So my boy is gone for the next three months, sans the one week that has already passed. He shipped out for boot camp this past Sunday. After a few good cries and lots of extensive letter writing, I think I'm good, at least capable of dealing with said scenario.
Unfortunately, my computer is currently malfuctioning in such a fashion that my monitor is unrecognized by my system so I'm updating this from a friend's house. There won't be any kind of steady flow, but this community is the most likely to receive my updates for the next couple of weeks.
I miss him terribly, more because unlike him, I'm unable to simply look at this as a solid block of time. He sees three months; I see three months as a prelude to four years. I think I'm just being morose. Realistically we'll both have time off in which we can visit. He's taken a job as administration so he'll be outside of regular combat situations and I understand that he can take care of himself, but I just can't get past the sheer volume of time involved in this. Yes, four years is a relatively short period of time when compared to the average life span, but it's a relatively long period of time compared to the fact that it is approximately one quarter of my life to date.
Wonderful, he's reduced me to sounding emo.
At any rate, my ride is swiftly approaching and I'm sure my yammerings on should come to an end so I bid you all farewell. Never fear, you'll be hearing from me again, though whether that falls under the category of threat or promise I couldn't tell you.
Hello all. I just recently joined this community and thought I'd introduce myself.
Though not a wife, I am a significant other who will quite soon be forced to spend excessive time away from my boyfriend. He'll be shipping out for basic training in approximately two weeks. I happened to stumble across this journal while doing a random intrest search out of boredom and it seemed appropriate.
Though we've only been dating for about four months we are deeply in love and I have no doubt that in the first few weeks of his absence I'll be posting frequently. If at any time I become an annoying overposter, please inform me so I can cease and desist.
Thanks very much for providing this outlet and I look forward to interacting with all of you.
Nobody has really posted in here in a while, so I thought I would. :-) My boy needs to come home now! I'm still unemployed and I stay at home doing stuff all day... I feel like a little house wife..hehe. But, he's at work all day and I'm here all day, and I get to missing him when I'm here by myself all day. Luckily I have no set schedule, so I can stay up with him whenever I like. I just can't pay my bills! That's the bad part... so, I'll probably (hopefully) get a job soon.. and then I won't have the luxury of being able to stay up with him or being able to pop by his work and surprise him on occasion. :-( It's such a bitter-sweet situation. Oh well...
On another note... I was being silly the other day and said something like "We can make little babies together!!" (of course I wouldn't want to just yet, but still)... and he came up with a very good answer to that... "I'd rather make them with you than anybody else". :-) Awww...
Okay... I'm done gushing now.
Okay, no time alone, really. But, time together all the same. I had almost a week off, and Jason had 3 days off. It was like having a vacation. We finished our Holiday shopping and decorating. I picked up some lover-ly ornaments at Pier 1, deep-jewel toned, and vaguely Indian (not Native American. Indian) looking. The tree is up, the gifts are wrapped, and I'm having a White Russian (the cocktail, you pervs).
Happy Holidays to you all!! I wish for you a beautiful year, full of love and laughter with your S.O.
