Get out of your head!!

Today was a lesson in love for me:

I told my Mr. that I had a date with some friends for coffee this morning.  He got up early and went fishing - with our only pick up truck... my coffee date time came around and he wasn't home yet... 4 hours later.
I started to get a little upset.  I started thinking those ugly thoughts like: He doesn't even respect me enough to get home in time so I could use the pick up.  He knows I don't ask to go visiting often. He doesn't think MY things are important.  When ever I go anywhere, he expects me to be home in record time and I damn well better check in if I'm going to be late....
The thoughts started to tumble harder and faster and darker....

I caught up with all my chores and called one of my friends to have her pick me up.  I wasn't going to miss out just because someone was too disrespectful to be home in time for me to do my thing.
Then just as I was cleaning up the kitchen I noticed a little note on the chalkboard that he had left me this morning at 5:30 when he went fishing....

Like a big old fat balloon... I felt my anger fade away... and then I realized that he was just enjoying his fishing time and had completely forgotten about the time.  He didn't mean to make me late - he just forgot.

Then the phone rang and he was all apologetic... and so sorry that he forgot.... I had already forgiven him so it was all good....  Thank goodness for a small note that helped me get my head back in the game again.

I just wanted to remind you all - sometimes a simple note will set things right... and hey... sometimes our biggest enemy is our own head!  Get out of your head!!!!

  1. Awww...loved this...hope you receive more notes like this in the future. And you're right- a little communication can go a looong way in letting someone know they're appreciated. And getting out of our own heads- I get stuck there at times- thanks for the reminder <3
