    Lol, laugh away. Maybe I'll be more amused in a year...

    The dang cat. He was the one that chose to live at my house and also next door some years ago. We kept giving him back to his owner that lived on the street behind us. And he would come back. The last time I returned him, he found my cat door and happily jumped up on my bed for the night. Which caused a ruckus with my own cat (who is now no longer living).

    Anyhow, he apparently hangs out at other houses, and thinks he owns the neighborhood. I guess I rate, though. I don't think he brings anyone else presents.

    He is a very effective hunter. I just don't want the "gifts" in my house.

    I have to figure out the cat door situation. He will never settle for being an indoor cat. I may choose to block off the cat door somehow and just let him in and out manually.

    Sigh

    Oh, and about my houseguest. I was so exhausted that I was pretty snippy with her. She was ready to help me fix the toilet or whatever other pressing projects I need to do (I have many).

    Normally I can take her in small doses but I just didn't have the energy this time. After she drove home I called apologized for being such a snippy host. She understood and knew how exhausted I was. She is lucky she wasn't there for the rat episode!

    I got out and walked by the river for 6 miles. It was a great day and I feel so much better.

    I walked with a friend (I'll call her Sylvia) whose husband has deep anger and jealousy issues. She is on the verge of leaving him, and we talked about how she might safely do that. A year ago he threw her work computer across the room and it was damaged beyond repair. He says he "loves" her and is afraid she will cheat on him with another man. There is no way she would do that - she is as straight-laced as they come.

    I asked her to drive out of town to hike some waterfalls but he won't let her go. Controlling is not love. Ugh.

    Last year, after the computer incident, she had moved out for 3 weeks. She just stayed at a family member's house. But her daughters (one in college, one in high school) stayed with their dad, and begged her to come back.

    I think they understand more clearly the issues this year. Sylvia doesn't want her daughters to think this kind of relationship is normal.

    He is retired, but does no work around the house. She cooks, cleans, works full time, etc.

    Anyhow, they had some property that they were going to build on and he decided he didn't want to build a new house because he was sure she would move into it and get a divorce. This was last year. Moving into it was the last thing on her mind - she just wanted to generate a bit more rental income before her youngest goes to college.

    She talked him into it, and he was going to oversee the construction. After it was approved and started, he stopped doing anything with it, and just let things slide.. So she has to go over there to manage all of the work, after her job.

    Anyhow, now he is controlling again. When she goes over to meet with the workers, her husband accuses her of flirting with them. (She would never ever do that).

    So now, even though it was not a thought last year when he accused her, she is now contemplating moving into the house when it finishes this fall.
