Building up. . .

We got our insurance for our house today-- now we can look at building. My husband has an appointment with the bank on Friday, which will probably result in yet another appointment with them, given how they do things. We don't come out ahead-- we get to (God willing) get a bigger loan and build a bigger home. My husband is pretty much doing this and he asks me to look like he is asking me-- but this is really his project and there is nothing that I can do about it. He is considering letting me have an area where I can have a livingroom that doubles for yoga, which is nice, but he can dream all he wants until I ask if we can do something and he gets irritated with me and says something like, "Tea, we are really pushing it financially!"

Disasters are not good for fragile situations. He has the loan.

Tea, we have a proverb which say that every successful men need a women in the background. It means that to be successful in life a calm and supportive spouse/wife/husband/girlfriend/boyfriend/whatever is needed so be glad that he asks your opinion on finances.

I am not the best person to give you advices but this proverb has really truth content. Before having my first relationship I found it stupid but now comparing my short (but very happy) time in relationship and my life after the break up I made the conclusion that eventhough I am an iceman/lonely wolf kind of, it was better to have a girlfriend who told her opinion about stuff and at times she "kicked" me to the right direction. She was very confident in a different way than I am.

Ah, I never thought I will miss a girl. :P (she is 6'1 so yeah I scored a double own goal despite we have good relations despite the end - oh and she asked me how many times the Habsburg dynasty was dethroned in Hungary. It was the moment when I felt something will happen between us) Oh sorry for making you bored with my stupid nostalgic stuff.

Ropi, while I am not in your intellectual realm, I hope that you know I am smart enough to appreciate what you say! Thank you!
