    The Xbox Chronicles

    I know this won't sound like I'm talking about Xboxes, but bear with me. Earlier, after a very stressful and tiring day, my boyfriend and I sat down to watch one of our favourite shows - 'My Name Is Earl'. This particular episode involved one of the main characters (Randy...

    Not Excessive, Just Messed Up...

    My husband talked me into allowing an xbox in the house, after he knew for 2 years of marriage that I don't like video games because it's so easy to get addicted. He doesn't play a whole bunch, but whenever he does I feel I have to brace myself. He has no control over his actions...

    I'm at this junction.

    We have been married 10 years, we have 3 beautiful boys, and my husband will always pick the xbox over us. I guess I knew it from the beginning. The day we found out we were expecting our first child I took the test alone because he didn't want to leave the game to wait in the...

    About To Blow!

    I can't take it anymore!!! It seems he is playing more and more and if I bring it up I get snapped at. I get the need to unwind (although I cannot understand how shooting and being shot at can help unwind) and the need for "his time", I need that too. But my God today has been...
