Indecisive July 21, 2009

Posted by The Mom in Uncategorized.

I have done a lot of thinking since I posted last and I am interested to see how many women have told me they are in the same situation as I am, being the decision maker. This morning I told M to sign something (for his new car insurance), when he asked me what it was I told him it was for his car insurance and all I needed was for him to sign it. So he did and my job, for now, is done.

With a lot of coaxing and facilitating M has started his bee keeping course. A lot of hand holding was and continues to be required but I am happy to see him happy and interested in something other than cutting someones hair. He is passionate when he is talking about it.

He is getting to attend a course facilitated by an interationally renouned bee keeping author in 2 weeks and I swear if I have to deliver him to the apiary myself I will!

I realised recently that if I don’t tell M what I am cross about or what I need him to do I can’t get mad at him for not being able to read my mind. So. I need to tell him when something is wrong. Recently I told him that I need him to stop giving out about food wastage and that I need him to take responsibility for getting and cooking dinner on Tuesday. Well. It is Tuesday, J is asleep in his car seat, I am sitting in the car watching True Blo.od on my laptop and M is inside cooking the dinner. He was the one that remembered that it is Tuesday (I was planning what was for dinner in my head) and that he was cooking later. Whoot!

Oh, and he makes reference to food wastage but hasn’t given out about it.

We are still waiting for the bank to make a decision about our mortgage (although at the moment we are waiting for the accountant to come back with something before the bank can go any further), so there is no news on our small holding but to be honest there is nothing left in this growing season so I am happy to not be left paying a mortgage for now.

The peanut gallery asks: a bee keeper who writes about bee keeping? or an author who also practices bee keeping?

Also, the markers should get there soon; they were sent out last week. I’m sorry we dropped the ball on getting the package out the door.

A bee keeper who writes about bee keeping… http://www.amazon.co.uk/Practical-Beekeeping-Clive-Bruyn/dp/1861260490

Thanks for the markers šŸ™‚ I look forward to getting them. How much does my sister owe you for shipping? (I am scared to read the answer)

I have to double check with J – it should be okay, though; if I recall correctly, it was a little under what you’d sent me already, and we were about even from last time as it was. šŸ™‚ It occurs to me that that sentence likely doesn’t make any sense. Sorry. LOL.

It makes sense… toothpaste + popcorn + Peoples + postage = ~$50, shipping for markers = ~$50. Now… do I want popcorn some time soon?

Precisely. šŸ™‚ The difference in the shipping was about the cost of the items first time around. There we go, brain. Good to see you’re still hanging around sometimes.

If so, just say the word! Only somewhere other than here – despite telling wordpress to send me comments, it’s not doing so! Bah.

Love the idea of bee keeping! Hope he enjoys every minute of it. šŸ™‚

Won’t comment too much on the whole being the family manager issue, as I don’t think it’s fair on D to talk about him online.
I will say that for years before we met he lived alone and was perfectly capable of running his own life efficently. Somehow I’ve managed to undo all that in the last seven years but I think that might be all about me and not him at all!

Have my fingers crossed for good news re: the mortgage
