Yeah, me!

October 11, 2011

Today, the usual whiny rant is interrupted by a back-patting, self-absorbed “Yeah, me!” post.   No really, it is.   🙂

Why the change?  I did good.   Not “found a cure for cancer” good.  No.  Not that.  Not even upper case GOOD…

But some days you need to celebrate the little steps for good.  And this is one.

What did I do, you ask?   I didn’t have a fight.  Even though my hubby was itching for one – I didn’t go for it! 

Him – Are you Angry?
Me – No, not right now.  Why?
  
Side note – I had asked him to clean up what he had tracked on the floor – twice – I waited about 10 min then I vacuumed.  I was then attempting to straight up a weeks worth of chaos in the rest of the house while he lounged on the couch. 

Him – I just want to know if you are angry.
Me – No…   not now…   But, I don’t think it bothers you as much as it does me when the house is trashed.

This is where it gets weird… he has this ability to turn this stuff into fights – I really don’t know how it happens… seconds later he is shouting “what do you want from me” and I asking him to stop shouting … he shouts more to explain that “now he really is shouting”…….

UG!

So I stopped.  I quietly said I didn’t want to fight. I didn’t want to continue this thing with him. 

He shouts again “What do you want from me?”  I state that I just wanted him to listen to what I say.  Not to respond just to listen.

And I repeated my comment: “I don’t think it bothers you as much as it does me when the house is trashed.”

And I walked into the next room.  End of argument.
