And, of course, Renee and I had a less than stellar evening after she came home.

I’m worried about her drinking – 6 wine coolers in 5 days is not like her at all.
I’m worried about how much time she spends online in her cell collector chat room.

She thinks I’m neurotic, and it’ll be better once I get a new job.

I’m hoping the same, but that’s one of the reasons I put myself on a one year time line, instead of a shorter one. Because I wish I knew what her priorities are. I just want to sit her down and ask. And then tell her to act like it.

She poos-poos my concerns about her online time, and says it’s all because of stress.

I’ve been worried about the chat thing since January. The stress is just making it worse. At least in January it felt like she was paying more attention to me and the kids than the computer. I dunno if that’s still the case or not, now, but it sure feels the other way around.

I should make her talk to her father. he an say things I can’t without getting divorce papers. And he’ll make her think about things, even if she’s pissed – unlike when it’s me she’s talking to.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    6 wine coolers in 5 days is nothing to worry about. Even though she never really drank before, that’s not really considered drinking.

    Sounds like she’s going through post partum. What does she say?

    Sunno. ANy overture at concern or worry I show about *ANY* of her behaviors results in a disagreement, and then she blows it off as “you’re under too much stress.” And She may be right.

    I’d not be worried, except she’s consumed more alchohol in the past week than she has in the past 2 years. Seriously.

    She hardly ever drinks. As in, having *ONE* wine cooler was shock enough, the fact that she finished a 4-pack in three days was a surprise, and the expectation that she’ll finish the remaining six we have in the fridge by Wednesday sets my worry warts off.

    I’ll not worry unless this continues into next week, then I *REALLY* need to say something. I’m sure there’s some post-partum caught up in it, but I’m so fucked up right now, I may also be jumping at ghosts.
