Still very chilly out. Somebody brought me takeout for lunch - finally had the Whopper I have been wanting for a few days now. Work has picked up, so the music is off so I can concentrate when I head back to it in a few minutes.

Stay safe and warm, everyone!
Thank you glad to be here. As a MMC newb it felt sort of like being on the play ground trying to find the right time to jump in the double dutch jump rope. Figured no time is better than the present

He is quite miffed that I chose to spend time with my friends over the break and not give him every single minute of my free time. He got to see me at least 3 times though. Led to a nasty fight that started yesterday and carried over to today. He says that I dont love him. He gets mad if I want to see my friends/ doesnt understand why I dont text him when I'm with friends. I'm not sure where the right spot is to post this...I was just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this?

Its a kinda hard one !! and only you and him can sort it out. but from his point if you were spenting all your spare time with your mates then yes he has a point. and if you were not texting him ask yourself why.. if you love someone which you know the answer to that one i wood think you wood like to spent special times with him.
On the other hand if you devide your time between the 2 then that s different. its hard to spent time with both when there is only a short time to do it. but if you feel you tryed to devide it between your mates and him. then what is he going on about? is he the type of person that expects you to spent every free moment with him? if so then that can become a problem as there is always gonna be other times. like birthdays,easter. times when your mates will want to see you to.. is there no way you and your mates and him can do things together?
Not knowing the full sitution. its hard to give stright answer. But its better to try and sort it out , but i have seen in all relatioships each one needs to give and take. it cant be one taking and the other giving.
Sorry if i have said to much.


Thank you for your input! I really do appreciate it. I saw him all day Christmas, then our normal day we hang out which is tuesdays, and New Year's Eve. I had discussed with him that I was also going to see friends that I hadnt seen in a while because I was subbing. He was fine with that until yesterday. I always let him know what friend I'm going to be with and that sometimes friends might find it a little rude that I am texting him while I am hanging out friends I havent seen in ages. I guess I am afraid that he is going to start telling me that I am not allowed to see my friends, which is something I will not take from him

and you shouldnt allow him to tell you, that u cant see them no more....just try to sort it out....of course it is very important to spend time with your boyfriend.....but friends are very, very important, too....most of the times one went thru thick and thin way before one met their other half....it is important to give the partner at least a little time with other people and for hobbies...I dont see a relationship working any other way

Well what is this guy shouting about ? you spent two of the most inportant days of the year with him..
Regarding the texting maybe sometimes he just needs to know your thinking about him when your with your mates. and if they are mates they wood not mind one little text. my mates do it all the time. am glad you said the last line." which is something I will not take from him" i wood agree 100 % but maybe a happy medium can be worked out. goodluck for tonight and just be honest.

I am hoping we can get it all sorted out today. Most of my friends I've had since i was like 5 so thats 18 years of friendship that I dont want to lose, and at the same time I dont want to lose him either, but I think that if he keeps treating me the way he is treating me right now he will be hitting the curb.

You guys are the best and so supportive! I feel very comfortable and welcome here

the new is not the best year stomach wise...lol....for whatever reason my stomach is going crazy....and no...we are not expecting...I must have caught a stomach flu...and it doesnt really develop.

anyhow...over here, most people are taking their decorations down, i will do so, too this week. pack it in the boxes and store it carefully....so christmas can bloom beautiful come november this year.

kandice is playing a little bit and going to bed in a few.

hey guys, happy new year!

i hope you all had a wonderful christmas 2011? i had the best one yet, it was fantastic, but i know christmas 2012 will be perfect and i cannot wait for it.

i've learned a few things and i will do a few things differently in the build up, i will start watching movies earlier as i didn't have time to watch half the christmas movies i wanted too.

luckily, we still have some christmas movies on tv! most people took their decorations down either yesterday or today, so christmas has kind of been stretched out so the blues haven't hit too hard.

i look forward to counting down to christmas 2012 with you all.
