Don't you hate it when you get in a fight with your spouse. Especially over something dumb. Well, I guess that fighting over something dumb is better than fighting over something important, right? Apparently, last night when I got home from the movie and he was watching Kung Fu Panda, and I joined him on the couch, he thought that we were starting a "date night".
And he thought that it was SUPER rude of me to bring my laptop on our "date night". And true, if it were a date night, and I brought my laptop and "worked", that would have been super rude. But in my mind, I was just joining him in watching the movie he was already watching. I was planning on going in our room and watching a movie that I'd picked out earlier, just the two of us.
Sigh. It was a big misunderstanding. Then he got his feelings hurt, and I got my feelings hurt, and it kinda sucked. Why must things be so hard sometimes.....
He got up early to go to church, and by the time I woke up to get ready for church, he was gone. We didn't sit together at church, because he sits up front, and I sit in the audience with the kids (not because he was mad), and then he went home early because he wasn't feeling good.
The kids were mostly well behaved during sacrament (Jimmy needs to learn to whisper quieter - LOL), and besides the fact that a Junior Primary teacher, a Senior Primary teacher, and the music choristor didn't show up, Primary was good. Really, people. You can't just not show up and not get a sub. That's not cool. Don't you know that it puts everyone else in scramble mode. Sigh.
Anyway, we came home from church, and got lunch. Guess what it was? Go ahead, guess? Chili? You're right!!! I also made some fruit salad. I didn't have coolwhip, so I used light sour cream and splenda. I think I actually liked it better. I had a big can of light fruit cocktail, a can of light mandarin oranges, a can of pineapple chunks, a red delicious apple, and a golden delicious apple. And 2 bananas. All diced up, with a cup of walnuts. OMGosh, it was SO tasty. I ate WAY too much - hehehe. I guess eating too much fruit isn't a terrible thing, right?
After lunch, I can't remember what I did until 2:30, but at 2:30, I went in to take a nap. I told the kids that they could turn on the TV and watch a movie, AFTER they did their chores and cleaned their rooms. Needless to say, when I woke up at 3:30, the TV was still off - hehehe. They were coloring, and reading, and playing nicely with their toys. No TV days are a good thing!
Captain America and I hashed out our feelings, and finally got on good terms again. I hate fighting. It's SO draining. But it's important to work though it, and get back to feeling happy and loving towards each other again. I know that :)
At 6pm, we went out to fix dinner. Yup, Chili. This time with crackers and cheese. And a bit of left over fruit salad. Original, I know :) We played a "family" round of Wii bowling, then sat down to watch the Dr Who 2009 Christmas Special, "The End of Time" Part 1. So so so so so so GOOD!!!! I can't wait for Part 2 on New Years day.
After Dr Who, Captain America and I did our "date night" that we were supposed to do on Saturday night. We watched a movie, just the 2 of us :)
Captain America has to work Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, then has Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday off. Should be a good week to come! I hope that everyone had a VERY Merry Christmas, and spent some good time with family and friends. I know that we did :)
Oh yeah, and just a random thought, but did you see that Ikeagoddess quit? I went to her site last night, after not having checked in almost a month, and discovered that she was calling it quits. How sad. She said that it just wasn't fun anymore. I can totally relate. I know when I first started, it was purely a hobby. Somedays, now, I find myself not wanting to design, or blog, or anything. Luckily, I look that the blogging as an "online journal", and I know how important journaling is. Hopefully that'll keep me going. And the designing? Well, honestly, that only takes about 6 minutes to get the WordArt freebee done for the day, so I think I can continue to devote 6 minutes a day to it - LOL! I guess what I'm saying is, I don't have plans to quit yet, but I can understand why she did.
