Not in a mean way ---But The last few days of DF being in the den assembling the new BBQ grill have been heaven. I've had more peace and solitude than I can even tell you - and it's been -(bursts into song again) I"ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts - do dah le do." The grill is almost complete....so he's taken to wandering down the hall - to the office - AGAIN. For the most mundane things. For the most RIDICULOUS questions. For the most are you serious you have to come in here and interrupt my thougt AGAIN for WHAT? I've shut my door, I've put a note on there when I'm talking on the phone to potential jobs, I've held up a hand or arm - in hopes that he would not blast in the room and every time it's the SAME thing. I have the door shut, I'm talking to a potential job offer and he walks in, I have either the house phone or the cell phone to my ear, my back to him and i'm LISTENING.....and because I'm not TALKING....he says loudly (because he can't hear) "ARE YOU ON THE .........OH IS SEE YOU ARE ON THE........Okay, OKAY) and at this point I'm trying to hear the person on the phone and waive him off -politely) and he continues - WELL THEN I'LL come back 0kay - WHEN YOU'RE NOT ON THE PHONE.......and DO YOU WANT ME TO SHUT THE DOOR......I'LL just shut the DOOR." and by then whatever information the person on the phone gave me? I'm clueless. Then I get upset and hang up, walk out in the den and say - CAn you turn that tv down? Can you TURN THAT TV DOWN (looks my direction) - CAN YOU PLEASE TURN THAT TV DOWN? and finally he fumbles for the remote and turns it down. Then says (and if I never here HUH or WHAT again It will be too soon) I didn't hear you HUH? So I go through explaining that when my door is shut - please leave me alone. I'm on job calls. INTERVIEWs....and he said "WEll How am I supposed to know that - the door is shut?" BECAUSE IF THE DOOR IS SHUT I NEED TO BE LEFT ALONE. What did you want anyway now that I'm here? Um......Oh I forgot now. So I go back to the office, shut the door.....and get back on the phone. I'm in the middle of a call......and YUP.....The door bolts open, he comes in......and it starts ARE YOU ON THE.........OH I SEE YOU ARE ON THE........OKAY.....OKAY.......WELL THEN WHENYOU GET OFF - COME SEE ME - I REMEMBERED WHAT IT WAS THAT I CAME IN FOR LAST TIME........DO you WANT ME TO SHUT THE DOOR? ....I'll just shut it.... And GOOD GRIEF I love that man - but OH HOW I wish some days ........ This goes on - like 10-12 times a day sometimes. UNLESS his friend stops by and then he doesn't MOVE from the den - they watch tv together - and he'll get up, fix himself some lunch, and return to the man cave - and it's like - WHY on the days when that guy is here - do you not bother me? Or WHY when you h ave a grill to assemble to you leave me alone? It's like the minute I park my butt in the office chair I SWEAR a light goes off in the den......BOTHER HER.....BOTHER HER..........BOTHER HER...........will you trim my hair, will you cut my toenails, will you look at this bump? Is this a bug bite? I dunno - you have two eyes - what do you think? I was in the middle of pruning my resume - does this look like a properly formed CV? Is this sentence correctly articulated to give me the most value with the least words about myself? BUG BITE? C'mon. I don't see spa /salon nail tech on my resume - cut my toenails? For the love of Sally Hansen - leave me be. Is it just me? I mean I realize I'm out of work and I have tried to stay OUT of his way and not cramp HIS style.........I realize being home is a blip on his routine - but I do NOT bother him - I stay busy other end of the house....... ANYONE else in this situation or is it as per usual JUST YOU STAR??????? Lord I'm going to start taking things apart and dragging them into the den - I can see me now up at midnight - sneeking into the garage taking apart the blender or the lawn tractor - waking up in the morning with it all apart disassembled in the driveway - DANG thieves - They must have been trying to get it on a moped - well at least it looks like all the parts are here - (*hands wrench) better get busy - I need to mow the lawn this weekend) If I thought midol would fix this? I'd get a case.
