Almost end of chess season

Finally the chess season is ending. Only one game left and the league in season 2010/2011 will be finished.
In general I have a good impression after all games I played. I won 4 games, 3 draws and 1 lost. So the final result is +3. Could it be better?
I think it was possible, especially last game I should win (instead of drawing). I had an advantage in material, but my opponent did find an eternal check.
Summarizing, the season wasn't bad. I had quite good results against opponents with higher ratings than mine.
As I mentioned, only one game left and it will be really difficult one. My opponent is rated 400 points more than I and it's not going to be an easy game. But we will see.

Family or chess

What is more important for you: the chess or your family? Most of us will answer that family is most important and the question is irracional.
Of course, it is right, but... How many players wanted to play in chess tournament, but his/her partner said, that it is not good idea. I have some friends and whenever they want to play with me (or our friends), there is a problem. Usually it is, that girlfriend/wife says that chess is more important for us. It is funny, because how it is possible, that the chess is more important than the other person.
Women needs to understand that we need some time to spend it with our friends playing chess. And it doesn't mean it is most important activity in our life.
Do you have similar troubles when you want to play chess with your friends?
