Re: Bumping Back on the bump back
Sounds like she could re-evaluate the way she speaks and thinks.
I have my days when my husband will be helping me and I may say something like:
"Dammit! Don't over fill that pan!"
my husband, and his response is usually something like,
"I was just trying to help you, I don't think that is a good reason for you to snap at me like that." he says it very calmly, but firmly.
usually by then I think crap, that was stupid, why does he put up with this, and say
"I am sorry I snapped at you, you are right that is really no reason to be cranky."
He will say something like, "I forgive you, now why is it bad to over fill the pan?"
"Because the pan has no lid and it spills when I move it to the sink and dirty dish water gets on the counter and floor."
he says something like, "Oh okay I understand."
and there you go we are working like a team again.
I don't know why eating ff of a clean plate is considered "off limits" in your home, maybe she was done with cleaning for that day and wanted to relax and just use paper that day, but she didn't explain that to you.
