Good evening faithful readers. I am away this weekend at my alma mater, 3 hours away from home. I will have limited access, so blogging is probably not going to happen until Sunday night at the earliest.

I have registered and procured hosting for NODRESSREHEARSAL.ORG. I have also installed WordPress 2.0. The last steps will be installing the template and migrating the posts I made here.

PROGRAMMING NOTE: I have registered the domain nodressrehearsal.org and will likely be moving this blog to its own server at that address soon. In the mean time, if you point your browser to http://www.nodressrehearsal.org,you will get to this site. Computer gods willing, I will be keeping the WordPress platform because I really like it, as well as the current layout, which I also happen to like. I hope you do, too. Stay tuned.

Making peace 12 January 2006

After the four-year relationship preceding my marriage ended, my analyst told me to read On Death And Dying by the late psychiatrist Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. This seminal work on the subject of grief introduced the five stages of grief: denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. While at first blush, it may seem odd to read a book about a psychiatrist’s interactions with terminally ill patients when coping with something like the end of a relationship, but when I read it back in 2000, I could see the parallels in my grieving process.

Weekend’s over, who the hell knows what’s going on 8 January 2006

To say I’m getting mixed messages is an understatement. Mrs. NDR’s mood goes from snippy and mean-spirited to a place somewhere in the vicinity of normal. All I can say is SIGH! (more…)

Did I mention? 7 January 2006

An aside: The Mrs. and I moved (back) to the city in which we live from Phoenix. Here it’s 28 degrees F (-3 C), and in Phoenix it’s 55 F (13 C) going up to 73 F (23 C). We moved back because… *stumbles for an answer*. Then again, being thousands of miles away and having my marital discord would have been a Bad Thing.

And no, I don’t even pretend that my writing is on par with the inimitable Hunter S. Thompson. I am just taking the advice of one of my profs — start with an interesting title. (more…)

Burning Down The House 5 January 2006

Tonight was the first night of couples counseling.  Surprisingly not much to say. Mrs. NDR is finding out that now that she has a good job and friends she is wanting the single lifestyle. We have agreed that we were too young when we got married. But what is the answer? The therapist says, and the Mrs. agrees, that this could go either way. My “homework” is to give her space, and her homework is to be nicer and more upbeat. Is this what we have been reduced to? This weekend we are supposed to be going out on a “date,” and our next meeting with the therapist is to be on Tuesday. I am just praying to whatever god there is for some strength. I could sure use some. No piss or vinegar tonight. Pretty emotionally drained, and tired.

Two days in a row my posts are also song titles. Go figure. The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Californication was a good album. Yes, it was pretty commercialised (see my previous post), but those boys can still rock out, I don’t give a shit.

Not surprisingly today was not any better than yesterday, at least on the relationship front. I think, however, I have begun to drill down to the core of the issue. (more…)
