@ossobuco,
One more post and I'll be quiet.
I remember back in my laboratory days resenting this, ah, bitch who came into the room acting like she owned the place, personality plus. Excuse me, I'm working. I seethed in my quiet way about her for a while. Who did she think she was? One sunny day, I figured out she was acting like me. Then I could enjoy her visits.

So.. recognition is half the battle.

In real life I tend to give people a wide berth, it takes a lot to get under my skin so I let people go on, and pretend to care. At some point with a few people I will get to the point where I have had enough. I will then either constantly change the subject, or if the subject allows take the devils advocate position. If I can turn the ranting into a debate I at least get debate practice....get something out of it.

@Phoenix32890,
Actually it's odd that you wote that in your post. My widowed sister is 72 and she had that operation 4 months ago. She's doing well. When we speak, she does the organ recital too. You made me snarf as I never heard that expression before. Very fitting nand funny. Of course, 'cause Im bionic too, so it's not so bad.

The great thing is she is doing so well with it and I hope that you are, also.

@Ragman,
True, Ragman.

I love Phoenix being back posting strongly.

Getting into assumptions, Mr. P has health problems too. Mrs. P may get a tad weary of his being the continuing focus, when she's just had this wild surgery. I take her point, and have no bright ideas, assuming that was the point.

My husband is a "nag" when a deadline looms in the future. For instance, if I'm planning a trip in June, he'll start nagging me in March whether or not I'm "ready" for my trip. I'll tell him, I'm not leaving for 10 weeks, why do I have to be "ready" today? So YES . . . there have been many times when I have to tell my husband that he's NAGGING for no apparent good reason . . . and can he just knock it off.

@Ragman,
Osso- Yeah, I suppose that you are right. This thing with my cousin started because she had felt estranged from most of the family, all of the others living up north. "Things" were happening to her, and she wanted some feedback to determine any genetic predisposition.

So what started as an intellectual inquiry, deteriorated to a constant retelling of medical problems. I suppose one of the reasons that this is happening, is that we really don't have much of anything else in common.

Ragman- I am doing great. Problem is, I sometimes overdo. I hold onto a shopping cart, speedwalk through all manner of stores, and then collapse. I am "chomping at the bit" 'cause I can't drive for another week.

@Debra Law,
Debra- I will get ready for a trip weeks in advance. I am usually packed at least two weeks before the trip. In the intervening time, I will throw more and more things into my luggage. I usually end up with much more than I really need. Mr. P. will have his clothes spread out neatly on the bed at 1 a.m. the night before we plan to leave. Drives me nuts!
