  3. I've been married since the age of the dinosaurs. I found out that my dh has been lying to me almost all of the time. He lied about why is overmowed the chicken garden. He was angry with me about a decision i made. He pretended he was over it then destroyed what i had done in the garden. Typical.

  4. We won't talk about that. We actually got our best selves together and bought our little farm. He helps with the chickens and i help with the horses. Believe it or not we are happy enough.

    It's okay--you know what? It did me just as much good to help me feel like I'm not isolated in how frustrated and resentful I sometimes feel when it comes to feeling undermined in the work I put in with the animals. It's very hard that the animals I love more than anything (the parrot, the ducks) are prey animals, and the ones he loves (the cat, the dog) are predators. But I don't have the option of not taking final ownership of the predator-animals in terms of training and guarding, because it's the ones I love that will suffer if I don't see to it that what needs to be done gets done. And that's hard. It's not his fault, but it's not mine either, and it's just...hard.
