I've been working remotely for almost 7 years. My wife just started 2 days ago since her office and realized it isn't as easy as I make it look... Plus dealing with me at home. I think she's ready to go back to her office.

I cannot not put her down and under. She is a good friend, good cook and my sidecar monkey. 🐒 And she knows what subordination is. :D

My question is has any SU ever exhibited normal behavior?

Now granted I knew they were unusual when I got married but lo many years now and I am astounded at how little I knew back then.

Me? I will worry when the ground thaws.

Been home for a week and a half. Wife of 25 years is a stay at home mom. I am fortunate to have a travel trailer in the driveway as an "Isolation" unit for me when I "get in her way".

My wife is saddened and frustrated by what has been going on. She just stands in front of the picture window and stares, hoping for this to end soon so that I will let her back into the house.

My wife starts mimicking me when she needs to let some steam off. She has a gift in knowing a little
:sarcasm: is better than :deadhorse: .
Very humbling, the mimicking I find. Others would get pi$$ed but I say " Hey. any attention is better than none."

Me, I get super Bossy. I'm already a little Bossy but I mean super duper Bossy. That's funny because Bossy is exactly how my friend Pig Als' wife acts when she's had enough. Normally she's all sweet and compliant but then ...? all of a sudden out comes the Devil with a whip .snap. He'll say, " Hey Timmy. Check out Suzy. She's wearing the Dick now .Check out Suzy. She's got the Dick. Let's get the fark outta here Man."

That might be a topic worth exploring here.

Hey,

"Does anyone know how long I have to not let no one inside my home during this Coronavirus?
It's already been 6th day my wife is knocking on the door. And I am kind of getting pi$$ed."

It's a joke! :lol:

Marriage, even after 30 years I'm still learning. For instance, I just learned that just because her teeth are showing does'nt necessarily mean that the Wifely One is smiling.
there is no problem so complex, nor situation so dire, that its solution can not be found in the skillful application of high explosives.

SIT-REP 4/3/20, wifely ones condition appears to be worsening in that she now looks upon me not with the love and understanding that I have grown accustomed to but with a fixed grimace that has an alarming resemblance to Jack Nicholson in The Shining. The bedroom is completely covered in 4mil plastic and she's trying to get me to show her how to run the backhoe. I will not, if she takes me out I at least want to give her a back ache from shoveling. Will hold this position till relieved.
