Singin' the Blues
I'm being a good listener but I wish there was more I could do. I'm pushing hard for her to go to counseling before walking away, but I'm not sure she will. Or worse, she'll stay but not get things fixed and then they'll end up living separate lives. I watched my brother and his ex-wife do that for years and it was horrible, painful and not at all helpful to their son. My friend does not have kids.
It certainly makes me very, very grateful for my wonderful husband. Our relationship is rock solid but that doesn't mean perfect. I really believe relationships involve compromise and making sure you consider the other person's feelings. Sometimes easier said than done but at other times, effortless.
What do you think makes a good, strong relationship? I think communication is really key, and making sure you understand what each other is saying they need.
P.S. Did anyone see celebrity gossip columnist Cindy Somebody on Tony Danza's talk show this a.m. with her crazy dogs? Yes, Tony Danza has a talk show, but don't worry, it's apparently just been cancelled. The man cannot string words together to form sentences.
Anyway, Cindy and her poochies Jazzy Jr. and Juicy were on the show and let me first say I am a dog lover - I have one and I adore most dogs. It's really her I have the problem with, and all people really, who treat their dogs like spoiled children instead of pets. Sure, I spoil Sampson on occasion with too many treats, but I don't let him take the car when I need it. Whaaaaaaaat? Apparently her dogs had a play date with Judge Judy's shit zhous (sp?) so she had her driver drive them over while she suffered in a cab to her engagment. She's seriously loony tunes. Jazzy Jr. peed on Judge Judy's fireplace so he won't be invited back for another play date. I wonder when they'll start making her sit in the time out chair.
