M and I used to battle regularly when we were young and angsty, but we rarely do so these days. So when we have a barking match now--even a mild one, compared to our old rows--it's more than a little disconcerting. But I guess we were just due. Too much building up the last several weeks, and not enough time/bandwidth to hash things out as they were coming, so pop went the cork.

It's not surprising we needed one, though. Both of us are under a ton of pressure right now: He's in both review season mode and end-of-ship-cycle mode at work. I'm still ramping up at the new job and adjusting (again) to working full-time after eight months off. And of course there's the house stuff. Extremely hot villa the last couple of weeks that made it impossible to do any housekeeping, so it's a pit right now. Closing on the house sale coming up. Stoopid stock market not getting to where we'd like it to be so we can have plenty of reserves after the purchase, etc.

And his car is leaking oil, mine needs a couple of windshield repairs, Penny needs a heart ultrasound and we haven't spent nearly enough time with friends lately. We've had maybe one or two free weekends in the last four months.

I also need a vacation, since I haven't done any traveling at all this year, but I can't afford one until months after the final stage of the uprooting.

Sounds like plenty of crap to make everyone irritated. Here's hoping things get better soon. In the meantime, the phrase "when we were young and angsty" brought to mind a thousand years ago and you singing:

A many years ago,
When I was young and charming,
As some of you may know,
I practised baby-farming.

Ahahah... Blast from the past. :)

I really miss singing. If I weren't going to be smack in the middle of this moving project, I'd go audition somewhere this month.
