Sigh. So since my sister in law and my husbands best friend have broken up, things are awkward. Things are now especially awkward since he has a new girlfriend. Do I think it's tacky to get into another relationship a week after breaking up with someone? Absolutely. But I have no ill will to the girl, I think she's nice. But now I feel like I have to take sides, and that is just NOT going to happen. Maybe it's all in my head (that I have to take a side or someone will be pissed), but Husband and I said from the start that we weren't going choose. I just don't know what to say to people in these situations. I've been married for 3 years, and with my guy for 6. I don't know what it's like anymore when you first break up with someone. It's always easy to look back on the past demise of relationships and think it was simple to get through, but obviously it's not, no matter what someone says. But at the same time, I have no advice to offer really. The situations in my life are just different.

The Jehovah's Witness people came by earlier today. I don't have the heart to be rude, but as Christian as I am, I totally can't get into their gig. I did appreciate the little book they gave me, and I appreciate the fact that they are totally against war. But the rest? Can't get into it. Cest la vie.

Here is a picture of something to bring me out of my funk.

Have I gotten the point across enough that I am thrilled with our new president. Freezing the pay of white house staffers who make over $100,000? I'm so loving that.

Sounds like an awkward situation. I feel for you. I love that picture. How awesome was this week's big day!

@ Lenox Knits,

Definitely awkward, but my sis in law is being very mature about it. It's a shame that all parties involved aren't.

This week has been EXCELLENT! To wake up, put on the news, and hear "President Obama..." is the best thing ever.

I'm sorry for the situation of which you're in the middle, but like you, I'm happy about Obama. I didn't hear that about the White House staffers. That's great, and I heard he closed Gitmo today and put out a "fatwa" so to speak on torture. Day 2 and he's already living up to his promises. Who says he hasn't done anything yet? :)

Unlikely Oilfield Wife said...

@ unfinished rambler, yes, I am so excited that Gitmo is closing! Unfortunately, most of the people I've come in contact with think that means that the prisoners are going to be let free. DUH, they are going to be prosecuted either here or their home country. We can't just hold people indefinitely.
LOL @ fatwa on torture, I love that! This president has done more in the last two days than Bush did all of 08.

just wanted to say that your blog is great and I'll try and keep up the reading of it. I too love our new prez.
and try to be neutral in the affairs of others, you'll be glad you did.:)

washwords said...

glad you got out of the funk. being in the middle is weird indeed.

I too LOVE love love the more than 100k salary cut thing. (among about a billion others, but this stuck, you know?)

glad to find your blog again (twice in a few days as a blogher post!) cheers.

Lenox Knits said...

The sound of President Obama has put a spring in my step this week too! I also wanted to let you know that you've been tagged. No pressure to play along though.

Unlikely Oilfield Wife said...

@ Jean, thanks, I'm glad you like the blog! And I'm trying to stay neutral, but it's so hard when you genuinely think the other person is being a jerk lol. But I'll continue to try :)

Unlikely Oilfield Wife said...

@washwords, my new fave thing that he's doing is loosening the reins on stem cell research. The fact that this could be the biggest discovery in medical history is just beyond exciting!! These 4 years will be tough, but awesome :)

Glad that you are enjoying the blog, hope you come back and visit :)

Unlikely Oilfield Wife said...

@ Lenox, I'm definitely going to do your tag, I just have to figure out some random/weird things about myself LOL.

I'm just curious as to how the other party wasn't being mature.

The relationship wasn't going well for a while, and it was ended in a considerate manner, and left at that. Game over.

Did I mention the repetitive texts?

You are wonderful and I am not just saying that because you were (are)an Obama
