Surprise ! I Wanted To Make You Happy

A Bad Day Turned Around

I was still sleeping until I heard you mumble

I am not fully awake and then there it is again

Mumble,mumble,mumble

What is wrong now honey ?

Noth'n with a quick snappy voice

Well if it is noth ing why am I awake when I was asleep a minute ago

I can't believe it

You can't believe what ?

Never mind

Oh I forgot you weren't talking

Why does it always happen when I am running late ?

Why does what happen honey ?

I get up early so I will be on time and then something happens and then I run late

What happened now honey ?

You wouldn't understand

Try me as I prop myself up on a pillow ready to listen ?

You could help instead of just sitting there

I offered to help you don't you remember

Well you should know me by now just help why do you have to ask

Because if I go to help you you get all mad

Well that is because you did something wrong and I will just have to fix it later

Come here and sit down

I don't have a minute to sit down

Didn't you listen to me at all ?

I am just waking up

My shirt has a spot on it and I tried some soda water to take the stain out

Ofcourse it didn't work

Ya so

Don't you get it

You have to wear another shirt

I can't wear it

No I want to wear that one

You have a whole closet full of clothes why do you need that one ?

I am up now do you want some breakfast ?

How can you think of food at a time like this ?

It will make you feel better

That's it

I will put some spray and wash and see if it comes out in the wash

I think that is a great idea or just buy another shirt like that one

What was that?

mumble ,mumble,mumble

You have to love an early morning fight

I think I will get her some flowers tonight

She loves daisy's

I will pick a big bunch and she will forget all about her shirt

Are you ready ?

I have to go

Yes honey, I am right behind you

You can hear the door shut then silence has returned to our quiet home

Dim Flaxenwick Sometimes fact is funnier than fiction.If she had a real temper I would be in trouble.She just has short moments of tension that build up in seconds and then explode.Then she acts if nothing ever happened.prasetio30 Thanx for all your kind words.Will you talk to my wife for me?Please?Nellieanna If it was my shirt I would of got another one.Then I use that shirt as a yard shirt until it disintegrates.I hate to waste things.Especially if it was my favorite shirt.Now it becomes my favorite yard shirt.She gets so upset at the littlest things.I am not a woman so I bare in mind it must be a trying time.Thanx everyone for your support and help.Have a beautiful day.

How old is she? I ask because women's hormones change thru time. I was right there in the room with this hub. Your flowers idea was great. Who can resist flowers?

I hate to say it, but for some people -- (women included in that category) the more one tries and knocks oneself out to please and pacify them, the more agitated and difficult to please they become.

So - it's wise to give oneself a little slack, too - and to establish some reasonable personal boundaries. She may be wishing (probably subconsciously) that she knew how far to push before she's overstepped them. But it is obviously up to you to step in, in your own behalf, - and firmly clarify that line, calmly, kindly and respectfully.

Children are at the same way; - they will push the edge as fas as parents let them - but what they are really looking for are their reasonable boundaries, which actually give them a sense of security themselves. Spouses need a similar sense of security with each other and knowing the mate does, indeed, have reasonable boundaries helps, - - unless one or bot mates are beyond the limits of kindness and courtesy. But it is always a two-way street.

Spouses need a similar sense of security with each other and knowing the mate does, indeed, have reasonable boundaries and where/what they are, helps, - - unless one or both mates are beyond the limits of kindness and courtesy. But it is always a two-way street.

PS - YOUR personal boundary line should NOT be a tightrope she's holding at both ends! That's sort of how it seems to be now & in situations such as the one you've described here, right?

It won't hurt a but to toss her some daisies while you're dismembering the emotional trapeze apparatus she's been putting you upon ~ Just hold your ground as you do.

I hope I'm not posting duplicate comments here - they're not showing up. In the last one - I made a silly typo "won't hurt a but. . ." instead of "wont' hurt a bit. . ." If you're monitoring comments, please deny any or all others but that one!

daisyflowrs she is older than me but you won't hear me say that again.She is younger than a young fawn in the spring.Her mood swings are like a see saw that never stops.Nellieanna Your comments are filled with so much knowledge and understanding.I haven't had a chance to post lately.All your wonderful posts never get missed by me.I frame them in my mind.Thank you and what can I say what you have not already said so beautifully.What a tangled web we weave...Learning as we go...Trying not to get angry but let others know...How much we need them and how little we show them so...raciniwa I try and sometimes I make split ends whole again.Other times I make my wife curse because I don't find the reasons to get mad.I rather find ways to explore happiness even further.Thanx everyone for your wonderful thoughts and comments.
