* So I have been really sick all weekend long.It started off as a cold and then morphed into a really terrible cold and cough with a stomach bug thrown in for added measure. It naturally fell upon the husband to take care of me and nurse me back to health. I do give him credit for being a sweetheart and indulging me and generally doing a good job of being my caregiver but despite everything, I somehow could not stop wanting my mommy! This obviously did not go down too well with M but he was nice enough to not let it affect his care-giving duties. I shudder to think of when and how the bitterness will manifest itself!
* I have know M since we were in high school and yet after we got married, I suddenly morphed into this control freak and wanted things done my way. Thankfully, I realized my folly soon enough and learned to let go and take it easy. I was hoping that we both would influence each other and some of our positives would rub off on each other. Well, it struck me yesterday that the end result has been that I have imbibed most of M's negative qualities and made them ours now so there is no distinction! So I am now lazier and less prone to losing my mind over a sink full of dishes and M, he just remained the way he was. This was obviously not the plan I had in mind but what the heck, I am at peace with it!
