1. No Crying
2. No Whining
3. No mention of how “happy” I used to be.
4. No talking about how good you are for me.
5. Never speak the words: “Someday you will realize that I was the best thing that ever happened to you”.
6. And don’t tell me that you can “take such good care of me”.
I can take care of myself.
I just can’t build a room in my basement….
Am I weak for giving in? Yes. But I made my friend a promise, and I don’t want her trying to live in my computer room. (There’s barely enough room in there as it is! and no closet space)
Am I going to regret this? Yes, probably. *sigh*
But there is no one else with the time to do this and certainly not to do it for free. (Although I will try to pay him, he already told me that is not an option).
I do hope he can follow the rules… or this could get ugly!
I’m such a selfish bitch.

My horoscope is interesting though…
You cannot use your logic to solve a personal problem that appears unsolvable. Maybe the answer is like a blossoming fruit, but it’s not quite ripe yet. Give it another few days and your waiting will pay off. In the meantime, however, don’t use this as an excuse to do nothing. Whatever move you make will be better than complete inaction, but understand that the real breakthrough is still on the way.
So I guess the action of having him start my basement was better than inaction….
Yes I think you are right, having him start was better than inaction. Give it some time and see if it blossoms. Have a great weekend.
I’ve given it nearly 2 years time. If it hasn’t blossomed yet, it ain’t gonna.
But he won’t go away.
And he knows I need help around the house.. so… I’m stuck until I can afford to do it without him or he gets smart and realizes there is no future. (Although I have told him that more times than I can count).
See why I’m a selfish bitch?
You keep saying that like it is a bad thing. In your entire life, you are answerable to only one person. YOU! So do what you need to do to be happy. Otherwise your whole life is just one big waste of time. Remember a line that goes “As you harm none, do what you will”…?
If he does not follow the rules, I am sure you can find help elsewhere. May not be as handy with tools but I have done some work like that before and would be willing to help out. I have been getting bored on weekends around here. besides, may motivate me to get to work on this place as well.
