The Silent Treatment.

My husband and I had one of those day's yesterday. I thought he was cranky... He thought I was cranky. Neither of us were. But we didn't talk to each other to avoid the crank from the other. 

Then we had to drive to my parent's house, an hour from where we live, and sit in the car with the other one, who we thought was in a bad mood.

Miserable.

Finally, I decided to communicate, which I guess is important in marriage. I said, "Husband, what's wrong?" He said, "Nothing. What's wrong with you?" I said, "Nothing. I just thought you were in a bad mood so I wasn't talking." He said, "I thought you were in a bad mood so I wasn't talking."

Can you believe? That little misunderstanding went on almost all day. 

So we apologized to each other. And then, do you know what my husband said to me? "Let's take you shopping and get you some pretty things."

Is that not the greatest thing he could ever say to make up for the fight (kind of) we just had? He rocks.

Too bad I had to reject his offer because of 30 for 30. This challenge is getting so difficult! But I will press on.

Have a great day! And talk to your lover when they aren't talking, won't you? Good. I'm glad we had this talk.

  1. I hate it when that happens with my boyfriend, and usually I get angry with him for thinking that I'm in a bad mood!

    Love the pop of colour the flower gives in the Day 17th outfit :) x

  2. What a sweetie! The Doc was really nice to me last night, too. Maybe there's nice-boy juice flowing through the pipes or something.

    Absolutely love that fabric flower pin, and those awesome pants!

  12. We've totally had that. What a silly thing to last the whole day. And ironic that you were both trying to be kind and give the other one some space!
