But this past week was our one-year anniversary. We were supposed to celebrate Sunday, but on Friday he announced his 18-year-old was suddenly coming home for the weekend.
He decided to spend Sunday with her. The situation has left me feeling hurt, confused and a little hopeless. When can I count on him when he consistently chooses the wants of his kids over the needs of his partner? Am I selfish or wrong for thinking that every so often I should come first? I know he loves me and he shows it in many other ways, but this has been a big issue in our relationship.
I should add that the girls like and approve of me and are understanding of our relationship and what it entails. But he seems blind to this and irrationally fearful that our relationship might drive a wedge between him and his daughters, who adore him and want him happy.
Jun. 5, 2017 "Should I intervene in my friend’s flip-flop flings?": Today I found this article by David Eddie in the Globe and Mail:
One off-and-on for 3 1/2 years, and one off-and-on for two years. The difficulty is he keeps breaking up with one to be with the other and vice versa. He has split with each of them at least five times to be with the other.
A month ago he retired and moved to a smaller town with one of the women, who also wanted to move there. They seemed to be having a great time and I thought all was well. It turns out he is constantly texting the other woman and this weekend he came to town to see her under the guise of visiting his daughters.
Early on, I found it mildly amusing but now I am sick of it. He could be close to abandoning his lease and moving back to town to take up with the first one again. Is it attention seeking, ADHD, just impulsivity or is it an addiction? I have told him I don't want to hear about it any more and to see his AA sponsor. Aside from counselling do you have any ideas?
It mentions this site umttr ( you matter).
Jan. 10, 2018 Feed Opportunity: I saw a commercial for this:
The Maple Leaf Centre for Action on Food Security (“the Centre”) collaborates with other organizations and individuals to advance food security. We are seeking to raise the profile of this pressing social issue, advocate for critical policies and invest in programs required to make sustainable improvements.
Safecheck Advanced Food Safety Certification: I was in this class for my restaurant job. They paid for it. I was there for a day and at the end of it, there was a test. I passed and now I can put that on my resume.
My work has also paid for my ProServe.
Mon. Jan. 8, 2018: Job interview at a fast food place. I like it and would work there if I got hired.
Tues. Jan. 9, 2018: Social event. It was fun.
Wed. Jan. 10, 2018: I went to a job interview at an eye clinic at around 8am in the morning. It was 2-3 min interview. I would work there if I got hired.
I then went home. I then went to the bus stop and met a young woman named Victoria who was a student and worked at a homebuilding company.
I then did a 2nd interview at a law firm. It was like 25 min. long. I would work there if I got hired.
Mid-season TV shows: Now onto the fun stuff.
Mary Kills People: This show came out with a 2nd season
"Single mother Mary Harris is an ER doctor by day, but by night she and her partner, a former plastic surgeon, moonlight as underground angels of death who help terminally ill patients slip away on their own terms."
My opinion: I saw the season 2 premiere and I was surprised 4 times in it.
The X-Files reboot: I saw the season 2 premiere and it was average. It came out in elementary school and my sister and a couple of my friends watched it then. It was not until summer 2000 when I was 14 yrs old I saw a few episodes. I did watch the reboot when it came out last year.
Burden of Truth: This show came out this week and I just saw the pilot. I will record all the episodes. It was solid.
"Big city lawyer Joanna Hanley returns to her hometown to take the case of a group of girls suffering from a mysterious illness."
25 seconds in:
Mooney: You're in wardrobe and I'm in civies.
Gordon Hecht: I was watching Cardinal, and I saw this good- looking guy at the bar scene 5 min. into the episode. I watched the ep and deleted it. I went to imdb.com to find him, but he wasn't listed in the ep.
I go to TV on Demand on my Telus (you can't fast forward). I can play the episode and have the TV off. I wrote down the names on the closing credits. I the recorded it again on Sat. night when CTV re-aired it. I then looked up the names on the closing credits. The name Gordon Hecht was by the character name Luke, though in the episode they never said his name.
On imdb, the credit wasn't on it.
I went on Google and I really had to study his face.
Here it is:
These pictures do not do him justice. He has different hair on Cardinal:
This is him on Murdoch Mysteries and is a average picture:
Here is a 2014 YouTube video of him singing:
Jan. 10, 2018: I made this comment on the video:
Then today he "subscribed" to me so he read my comment.
Facebook: He is on Facebook and we have a mutual friend, MADTV actor Ron Pederson. I have never met Pederson.
Mark Walberg donates money to Time's Up: I just posted this article by Elaine Izadi
onto my blog. It's about how women actors are not getting paid the same as male actors on the same projects.
Then I found this article:
Mark Wahlberg and his agents at WME have spun hard into damage control mode today, announcing that the actor—who was recently blasted in the public sphere for negotiating a $1.5 million reshoot fee on Ridley Scott’s All The Money In The World, while his co-star, Michelle Williams, was paid only a few thousand dollars for the same rushed work—will be giving the entire paycheck to Time’s Up, as a donation in Williams’ name. This is per The Hollywood Reporter, which quotes a statement from Wahlberg: “Over the last few days my reshoot fee for All The Money In The World has become an important topic of conversation. I 100 percent support the fight for fair pay and I’m donating the $1.5M to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund in Michelle Williams’ name.”
