Crossed Wires

I've discovered that my husband and I need to be more clear w/ each other at times. We got our wires crossed on Saturday night...he thought i was ignoring him and i thought he didn't want to have any fun (we were at a wedding reception w/ my parents, brother, his gf n their baby). To me he came off as not wanting to be around my bro, his gf and the baby. I wanted to hold the little guy as much as possible cuz they are two hours away from us. This all made for a long trip home from Knoxville, we got home - he changed and went upstairs and pretended that he was asleep. Then the next morning our wires still hadn't been uncrossed and at church he was leaning away from me like he wanted to be nowhere near me. Imagine my reaction to that one - I was really hurt. After we got back from church and were waiting for my parents to get there for lunch we talked a little bit about it - he thought i didn't want him near me (so not true) which is why he was leaning. Then last nite (Monday) we had our little convo and got everything worked out. Which made me realize that if something is on my mind that I need to speak out right then so that we don't go through two days of agony...

The Virgin Blog...

So at first I wasn't sure what I was going to say for my first Blog...but having just recently gotten off the phone w/ my dear hubby, I have some ammo!

This Saturday (10/25) I am hosting a shower for my brother's girlfriend for their new baby boy! Also, coinciding w/ that date Western (which is where I am heading to) is hosting a Discover Western day. My brother-in-law and mother-in-law will be going down for that, so I thought hey let's ride together! The third event coinciding w/ that day is a fellow Shorthorn breeder's wedding and reception. I decided that it would make more sense for my in-laws and I to ride together to Macomb, then I would meet up w/ my parents and go out and spend time w/ my nephew, until the shower. Then we would work out the ride details to get my in-laws back to Henry, and my husband to Knoxville. I, of course would ride with my parents to the reception and my dear hubby would meet us there. So I called him to inform him of my wonderful plan (I was so proud that I had figured it all out), what I tend to forget about in situations like this is that he has the 'We'll see' attitude about things like this. Now don't get me wrong, I realize that it is Harvest and being a farmer's daughter this is nothing new! The reception starts at 5:00 pm and for him that would mean approximately an hour drive, so he would have to stop at 3:30 to shower and get ready. Only problem is that he has to clear it with his dad & uncle(understandable), but the way that he says it implies that the farm dictates his life...and he can't do anything that he wants to do. This is my problem. I would love for him to think that it is ok to take off occasionally to have a social life. He always does this then we get to the event and he has a good time. I don't know why he puts up such a huge fuss!

I think that about sums it up for now...maybe later I'll give a little background on myself. But I had to vent!
