I am losing weight again and inches too.

Saturday, September 21, 2019

good Morning- Retirement is not for everyone. DH is still trying to find his sea legs. We argue more. He wants to always drive. He gets impatient and frustrated. He is taking care of Medicare stuff to the degree I never thought he would. I am grateful. But the anxiety that he emits in the home, I can feel it. he is not happy. He fakes it but we are both hoping this will change with the trip. He goes to the gym 5 days a week while I go 3-4 days at different times. it works so he can control his schedule and I can get a break. He can be so intense. He is not a morning person so a conversation with him before 11 am is not much interaction. I am hoping it will change. I am taking 2-3 hours by myself to read - take a nap or whatever I want. That has helped me greatly. I told him the other day - he has a sweet side and a sour side. When is the sweet side coming back? emoticon

    ***SIGH** Hope that the sweet side returns. So hard when he's flailing. Hugs and prayers.

    Hmmm. I wish I had advice. One thing I find curious ... he's not a morning person and conversation before 11 am is not much interaction ... Before he was retired, he must have started working much earlier each morning, how did he interact at work?

    No answers, just a question. Does an answer to that shed any light on how to proceed?

    P.S. congratulations on the loss of inches and weight.
