This weekend was a rough one though it ended on a better note.
Friday night the hubs and I had planned to go see a movie but decided to stay in instead. He did surprise me with a yummy steak dinner that he made so that was a good way to end the day. We then just relaxed and watched tv before heading to bed. Yes we have become that couple. The ones who think laying on the couch is a perfect way to spend a friday night.
Saturday we woke up to some fall weather. Finally. This motivated us to take the dogs for a walk which is something we never do due to the heat. Afterwards the hubbs cooked breakfast and we went to run some errands. Then we headed off to a friends house for a Pirate Themed birthday bask for their kiddos. Here is where the trouble started. We made plans with our friends to have a pizza night at their house after the party. Well at the part another couple invited us to come over for a little bit. We decided to stop by their house before heading back to our friend's house to order the pizza. Well M didn't want to go. So with the excuse of going home to let out the dogs he left. And didn't come back.
So obviously I got upset and that wasn't helped by the fact that I was tipsy. My friend made some sangria which I didn't know at the time also had brandy in it. I can't drink brandy or any kind of hard liquor for that matter so I was quickly buzzed. So that didn't help anything
I ended up drunk texting, crying hysterically and venting to my poor friends. Luckily this happened after the kiddo's bday bash. Not during so at least I don't have to feel bad about ruining a kid's 4th bday party. I ended up crashing at a friend's house and coming home this morning.
I expected M to be upset with me and to come home and have a huge fight. But he apologized and sat down and had a huge talk.
Bottom line is that lately we have both been stressed. We are trying to conceive, have a upcoming deployment along with a move and M has been weighing the decision to reenlist or not. I am able to talk about my feelings and emotions at all times but M holds things in. Over the past few weeks I've felt disconnected and in a rut and M agreed. Today we finally were able to sit down and discuss everything. It felt so good to just talk and have him explain to me what he has been feeling and what thoughts are going through his head. In the end we agreed to work on our communication with each other and to make sure we don't let every day stressor's get in the way of our marriage.
We then spent the rest of the day at the mall and grocery shopping and now are planning on ordering chinese for dinner. SO even though last night was a rough night the outcome was better than expected. And I vow to stay away from sangria and brandy!!
Anyway hope you all are having a good weekend
