I Have Found My Breaking Point

I spent the last 4 days in Denver with my best friend. It was a great trip.

MS2BX spent that same amount of time at our one time home. I appreciate him staying here so that the dogs didn't have to be boarded.

But ladies & gentlemen we have located my breaking point.

Today I got an email from MS2BX telling me all the things that he did to the house while I was away. I asked if he were letting me know what he was up to or if he were trying to infer I wasn't doing a good job. He said that he wasn't inferring anything, he simply wanted me to know what he had done.

I appreciated that. Or at least the part of me that is trying to be a bigger person did.

Sure some of it annoyed me but I tried to concentrate on the gesture.

Then I got home.

I looked at the hideous fake flowers that he and his sister placed in the master bedroom. They are colors that are not found in my house. I am just not a country blue and yellow kind of girl.

Haven't seen the breaking point yet?

The smallest hideous arrangement was contained in a vase that says:

Family. Dream. Love.

Seriously. I can't make this up. Who would do that?

I just want this over with. I want the house to sell. I want to be done. I want my life back.


  1. Oh geez.. that's awful. I'm sorry, it'll be over soon. Maybe if you smash the vase you'll feel better? Or maybe I'm just a violent person...

  2. does he know the definition of irony? i am with liferehab...smash it! i would still think you are a bigger person! plus it would be so cathartic...

  3. move. leave him with the house payment. and the fake flowers.

  4. I understand.

  5. Oh man. I would mail him the flowers and tell him to go f*ck himself. Not cool.
