Boyfriend is Sad.


Sigh. I was going to have a post about the Dog Sign Contest today, but it’s not ready yet because Boyfriend and I haven’t gotten a chance to review the entries. Why not, you ask? Because Boyfriend had to cancel our normal Wednesday date (AND our Friday date).

No wait, don’t feel bad for me! (Okay, you can feel an itty bit bad for me). Boyfriend had to cancel because he’s super stressed out at work. It’s like this:

And then there’s me:

And while I can run to people above my pay grade when I have to deal with stressy situations, Boyfriend is pretty high up in the organization and has to deal with all the shit himself.


Fuck what, honey?

Anyway, so he decided he needed to get away for a few days, and went down to seaside town Wed-Fri. He SWEARS that those were the only days he could get away from work/his home and they "just happen" to be during the datiest time of our week. Mmmhmmmm.

Sorry honey.

So to sum up, Boyfriend’s life is hard because work is totally overwhelming and he can’t catch a break and he played bad golf on Tuesday.  And my life is hard because I have to go a couple of days without Boyfriend.  So, you guys can judge who has it worse. (Sighhh. Boyfriend does.)

Anyhoo, I feel bad for poor stressy Boyfriend. I’m hoping he gets lots of rest in seaside town. Be extra nice to him, please. Send restful vibes his way.

I’ll be sure to try to fix him the best way I know how:

  1. He played bad golf? Holy crap, he definitely needs some respite! Hope he gets better soon. Oh and, from all the work stuff too...

  2. That last comic is PRICELESS. I wish it was one of those gif things that showed you humping his leg up and down. Is that wrong? I don't care. I love it.

  3. Aww poor Boyfriend and you! So many restful vibes being sent - can't wait for him to get back so that you can do your fixing business.

  4. This stressed me out just reading it. Back when I had a stressful job, it made me constantly question if it was worth it. The answer was no, because I hated that job, but unemployment sucked too. All the best to Boyfriend, hopefully things calm down soon and/or he gets recharged seaside.

  5. When he gets home, I think a back massage is just the thing to alleviate the stress. Make sure he starts at your neck and works his way down.

    Happy Friday!

  6. Sorry Boyfriend is stressed... Hopefully time at Seaside Town will do him good. (I love the cartoon of Clingy Gia at the end. It always reminds me of those bendable Gumby and Poky characters... I just totally dated myself, didn't I?!)

    PS Not that you in the cartoon look like either Gumby or Poky - just your legs do. A little bit. I'm sorry.

  7. I'd give my left pinky toe to see a picture. I'm insanely curious like that....

  8. Your last picture reminded me of those clip on monkeys you could put on your pencil. Hilarious.

    I am getting higher up in my organization and it gets more and more stressful the higher I go. I feel for boyfriend.

  11. Restful, peaceful vibes aimed toward Boyfriend AND you Gia. Are you packing yet?

  12. I tell my husband to go hang with the friends with fishing and golfing trips all of the time. I know his job is crazy stressful and sometimes they just need to shut everything off and walk away. Unlike most women who can find something pretty and new in the mall and come home skipping. Oh wait, that is just me! ;-)

  13. I can relate to relaxing by the seaside. A good dip in the water does wonders to relieve stress (and conveniently makes you sleepy during the drive back home).

    Hope he feels better!

  14. I had a stressful job as a cook once, but the plus side was that I could yell horrible things at people without any repercussions. Now, my job's easy as shit, just annoyingly boring.

  15. Some time aways will definitely help him. Maybe make him something for when he gets back? A surprise dinner/movie/gift?

  16. I hope the seaside trip is just what Boyfriend needs to de-stress. Are you sure he's not hooking up with one of his many new wives? ;) ;) I kid.

  17. The best thing for stress is free-basing cocaine...tell him that.

  18. i say "fuck" all the fucking time and no seaside retreat in sight. clearly i am doing something incorrectly.

  19. Pardon me, Mayor, but I feel more sorry for you. Boyfriend has to realize that the stress at work is meaningless. Work gets done when it gets done. If it doesn't get done on time, then the world does not stop turning. Fuck everything.

    Love,

  20. Sending restful vibes his way... except for when you're "fixing" him.

  21. I am sending a lot of good reiki healing over his way, and if he doesn't like reiki, it's okay if he throws it back and it smacks me on the face.

  22. hope boyfriend comes back stress-free and rested.
    have a great weekend, Gia.

  23. It's good that boyfriend has the presence of mind to take time to decompress instead of plowing through the garbage all stressed out. There are people I know in my life who could learn from that.

  24. I love when you cling to him like that. So totally normal and I'm SURE a turn-on. :)

  25. Stress sucks. Hopefully his time away helps him recharge!!

  26. I laugh every time I see a picture of you being clingy. Hope you're both happier soon.

  27. Is he back yet? I hope the trip made him feel better.

  28. It's a shame you couldn't go with him. Hope he feels better!
