Another Day In The Life Of..so this morning I decided I would accompany my husband to his second marriage counseling session. He had one last week which we were both going to attend, however, after we fill out our paperwork we got the bright idea to share what each had written in the "tell your story" section...after I read mine out loud, he got abruptly up from his chair with his pout face on and stomped out of the room..not surprised but curious, I followed him and ask him what's up with that..he said he put bullet points on his and I told a story..well, the title of the section is "tell your story" so in the best reader's digest way I could I told my story from my point of view...he did not like what I was telling..especially the no sex part. So I caved and deleted the entire thing and decided I was not going to that meeting & didn't. But since I have turned a new chapter and have not been giving in to his pouting,etc..I decided last night to fill out the stuff again and went w/him this morning. Nothing much happened although I did get into the no sex,etc..and the couselor seemed interested in that. He wrote the name of a book down on a piece of paper and gave us "homework" to do after we read the first three chapters. We get in the car to leave and my husband says "so are you going to go get the book today?" now mind you, I have and have read no fewer than a dozen books on marriages & he has refused to read any of them because "i'm not a book reader..never have been"..I looked at him and said "no I'm not, I've bought enough books and I'm leaving this one up to you"..."gotcha" he said...I've being given the silent treatment along w/the pouting face now which i am happy to report is not penetrating me in the least...and we are having our first beautiful snowfall this morning..I intend to enjoy it all by myself.
