Me: When are we going to talk about getting/doing XYZ???
DH: I have a trip I'm leaving on, I don't know.
Me: I need your input
, so we can get this show on the road....
DH: Sorry I don't have time....
(REPEAT SCENARIO THREE TIMES....for each request)
Me (many times over 24 years):
"DH, I bought":
1986: A CAR, REFRIGERATOR
1988: A COUCH, ENTERTAINMENT CENTER, CHAIRS
1990: A VAN
1990: I LEFT AS HE WASN'T LISTENING...
2003: A CRIB, DESK
2005: PACKED US UP AND MOVED
2007: A HOUSE
2008: A DOG
2009: A JEEP
I give it a "three strikes you don't talk with me and I do what I gotta do...."
My DH used to say: "WHY on earth do you make all these UNILATERAL decisions without me????" DUH?
LIFE DOES NOT STOP BECAUSE SOMEONE WON'T DISCUSS THINGS! If I waited for my DH to get ready to discuss things I'd be an old angry woman.
