    Yesterday I ran some great raid runs with the great guild I just joined.. while my wife made her great Gazphaco...chilled some wine.. I take her out for sushi, movies, basically treat her well... and in turn she understands (as best she can) my hobby of DDO. I kick in for housework, food shopping, etc. All while playing about 20 to 40 hours per week, running (ran a marathon this year), and working 40 to 50 hours a week. Sleep is over rated.

    Like some others I made choices in life, one of which was to marry a great woman that I can commumicate with and understands my needs. I in turn give back to her.

    Balance in life is not easily achieved but something we should all strive to attain. Games with no set "end" and never ending goals can easily swing life out of balance. I recommend the OP take a step back and meditate on what is important to him in life. After all maybe you play DDO to escape her? If so then you should leave. If not then cut back on DDO, after all it is just a game and don't let that impact your real life.

    Default Update to the situation

    Ok, first off ~ Thank you all for the support and positive thoughts!

    Secondly,

    It seems as though she just wanted some attention from me, so I gave her some "rough and tumble" attention and all is good once again.

    I guess in the future if I say I need to go take care of the wife then I may be back in a few minutes or it may be see ya tomorrow.

    Either way thanks for your understanding ahead of time!!!

    Happy Raiding!

    lol i wonder what your motive was to post this lol if it was to show that some things are more important than the game i think you failed. in addition idk if you could have picked something more humorous as attending to your friends cat. maybe had you said you feel that your ant farm was more important, maybe that would have delivered a better chuckle, or maybe watching paint dry. regardless if you think so lowly of this game as that it is less important than your friends cat then maybe your not having such a good time here. or maybe you need some higher priorities, maybe you should start with getting your own cat lol.

    You can learn alot about spouses by watching a cat. When you want to pick them up they want to be put down. When you want to be left alone, they purrr and purrr and rub against you. If you dangle a string they go crazy for it. Throw the string at their feet and they don't want to have anything to do with it.

    So all I am saying is, you can play as much ddo as you want, as long as you pretend you don't want to do it! Me I pretend I am so bored when my spouse is gone that I have to play ddo or else surf myspace for hot babes.

    But if you choose ddo over your spouse your genes will be unapologetically weeded out of existence.

    I wish I understood what you are trying to say. Saying I have messed up priorities is a bit inane. My point was as simple as counting to 10.

    This is a game.

    A living being, be it a human or a cat, is more important than any game. I enjoy playing this game a great deal. However if the cat wants food, my friend was to go for a walk, my mom calls, i need to sleep, finishing a radio program, a concert I have to prep for, eating, taking a shower... you know LIFE calls, I afk or log off.

    Seems a bit weak to assume I do not enjoy the game because I have a life outside of Stormreach.

    So Can i get that Pally build from you?

    I mean if you've got time to post small blocks of text you must have plenty of time to post up the Best Pally in the Game.

    That's it Heff,I'm tired of you being so critical of others!
    You don't know the situation with that cat,don't pretend you do!
    That cat could be just like Lassie and was warning them their souffle' had fallen,someone is at the door with watchtower pamphlets or someone they know has fallen down a well!
    You of all people should be sensitive to the plight of fat tabbies!
    Why do you have to be so judgemental,WHY!

    see, all she needed was a little maintenance(rough & tumble)... grats cause who likes to get their own dinner and if we had to clean the bathroom we'd be up to our ankles in dirty shower water in no time. Glad it worked out.
