I remember at my bridal shower we played this game where everyone who was already married wrote down anonymous advice for the new couple and then I had to read them all aloud. I had at least two if not three cards that read “Don’t go to bed angry“.
Does anyone really do this? I mean REALLY, you never ever ever go to bed angry? You always solve your arguments before going to sleep? Always? Bologney. No offense, but I just don’t see how that’s possible! P and I are going on our 3rd year of marriage and although our arguments aren’t as fiery as they were when we first married (I think we’re both just too tired now and give up easy) they certainly aren’t always resolved by bedtime.
Tonight I’m going to bed miffed. For the second night in a row. Last night I was fuming mad, the kind where you make sure your feet don’t accidentally brush against his under the covers because you don’t want to show any sign that might tell him you’re anything less than FURIOUS. Tonight I’m still perturbed. So here we are, laying in bed, both on laptops, not really talking and there’s this nagging voice in my head that says (in a Glenda the Good Witch voice) “Don’t go to bed angryyyyy!” But I’m sorry, I’m still pissed! And so is he. So guess what? We’re going to bed mad.
Does anyone else do this or am I the only one who can’t seem to keep the number one dispensed newlywed rule?
ps– Samster’s ultrasound went great! She was SOOOO good, she just gave the sonographer a death stare the whole time like “who the heck do you think you are putting cold goop on my belly? Don’t you know who I am? I’m Samster! I’m SO gonna talk to your supervisor about this.”
She said we should find out the results from the pediatrician tomorrow…
