That’s right, ME.
So yesterday I came home. Had my hands full, and was unexpectedly mad at the door being locked. I start kicking the door, or knocking with my foot, as I fumble for me keys.
I was not in a bad mood when I arrived at the house. Anyway, my wife justifiably starts asking me why I’m kicking the door. I just remembered why I was upset. It was because just before bedtime the night before, I was told to fix the garage door. It is older, and had been backed into before, and had separated a little when opened. It was going to be a cold night. When I got home, the other door was wide open. I remember thinking, You’re (my wife) yelling at me to fix a crack in door, and leave the other wide open?
This is petty I know. Just bear with me, not the worst of it…So my wife and I are pissed at each other 2 mins after I get home over stupid shit blown out of proportion.
She tells me half an hour later via text that she had plans for me when I got home, but all those happy thoughts went out the window when I got home.
Great! So I ruined a potentially wonderful evening. Nice job….no one to blame but me.
So since my wife opens the lines of communication, I send her about 20 texts telling first admitting I was an ass, and then on to other things about how I feel about our relationship. How if we don’t get to know each other again, and establish some foundation of intimacy (not just sex), that we are screwed.
I woke up this morning and was a little surprised I didn’t have a single text response. If she doesn’t talk to me at all further, I will have to consider the possibility of emotional manipulation? I am brushed off, but never get a reasonable answer until well outside of the moment, so I take responsibility for this one, unless her actions lead me to think otherwise. Regardless, it was stupid to be upset at something so trivial. I had dealt with so many more difficult situations during the day prior to that, and handled them much more gracefully. ..
