The last few days have been tough days for me. I am not going to go into detail about it, but I’ll tell you a little bit. It all has to do with problems with plumbing in our house. The landlord has people working on this for us, trying to get it fixed, but it is very slow going.
Honestly, I’ve been hard on Feyma about it, because I am just so mad and inconvenienced that I don’t feel well, and I guess I have nobody else to blame it on. I don’t know for sure why Feyma puts up with me when I get annoyed like this. I guess she loves me, that is the only reason why anybody would put up with me through this little ordeal.
The thing is, this is a typical landlord issue. At least they are working on it, which is more than a lot of landlords do here. It’s just way too slow!
The thing is, I have been complaining of this plumbing problem for several months now, but nobody did anything about it until it became an emergency. At this point, we cannot use our master bathroom, which leaves Feyma and I having to use the bathroom that the kids normally use. That means that 10 people are using one bathroom. That doesn’t work well, and that is why I am not dealing well with the situation.
I don’t like it when I take out my frustration on Feyma, but I suppose that I do it almost every time. It’s one of the bad sides of myself, and I know that I have to change it, because Feyma is good to me, and I should not treat her in the way that I have. I guess part of the problem is that when I get frustrated about a situation like this, I want to talk to the landlord and let them know that I am not happy with the way they are handling it. Feyma, on the other hand, wants to smooth everything over and not show that we are upset or frustrated. So, she kind of holds me back from talking to the people, which makes me even more upset!
Oh well, I am hoping that we will be able to use our bathroom in the next day or so, but I don’t expect that to happen. I think it will be at least a few more days before we can use it. Can I make it that long? I don’t know. I am, though, going to try to keep my temper in check and see if I can do better. No matter what, I am not going to be happy, I just need to not be so mad about it. That is not an easy thing for me to do in a situation like this, but I’ll do my best.
I admit that Feyma is a lot better at keeping her feelings in check in a situation like this. All I can do is try to do better. Maybe if it can’t be repaired soon, I should go out of town for a short trip. That will take my mind off of it, and also get me away from the things that frustrate me at this time!
