My Husband is a PUNK!!!
So, picture me euphoric.
I was having a great day! I only got a few hours of sleep, but that didn't phase me. I got up with the kids, they danced a bit while I checked my email and listened to itunes, I implemented a new sticker chart regime with my daughter, then it was off to daycare for the tots.
Next stop was taking my final for social psychology. I chatted with my proctor for a bit, then was done and on my way to the grocery store. It's a beautiful day out today (finally!) The sun is shining, the wind was for once not atrocious and it was decently warm (60.)
I went to the grocery store and was beyond stoked that I managed to buy a 20 lb. bag of dog food, a can of wet dog food, two bottles of juice, bread and bananas for $8.67 that I happened to have in cash! (Thank you coupons and rebate checks!) Then, I got something exciting in the snail mail, checked my email, had a bunch of new followers and postings for my blog and then noticed how many wonderful people were recommending me for followfriday on Twitter.
My day was going great, plus there was the added knowledge that I had NO MORE responsibilities for the day! It was just time to relax and enjoy the fresh air. I was in SUCH A GOOD MOOD!
So, I get home, tell my husband about my wonderful mood and ask him to try not to mess it up. We decide to go to lunch (which kinda voids my great savings at the store), have a nice meal and then on the way home, he drops the mean bomb and ruins my day!
I start to tell him about someone that I am finding increasingly annoying and he cuts me off to tell me that I'm being judgmental and that it's really annoying because it seems like all I ever want to do is judge people and gossip. He said that no one is going to want to be my friend and I'm ruining my personality by being this way.
Well, that hurt. Normally I am an emotionless pit, but I almost considered tearing up on this. What a mean thing to say! I like myself and I was NOT judging that person that was annoying me! I can't get into it in case they read this, but they are becoming increasingly needy and I don't like it. I was NOT judging them the way he said I was.
Plus, I know that I tend to gossip and complain, but he's my husband, aren't I allowed to do that with him? And I never let my "judgments" change the way I treat people. I'm nice to everyone whether they deserve it or not! (Unless I'm being sarcastic, but that's just good fun.)
So, what do you think? Did I over react? We got home and I told him how much he hurt my feelings and that I wanted to be alone the rest of the day until I pick the kids up from daycare. I'd like opinions on this. But, I don't like having my feelings hurt and most of the time I shrug it off, but coming from him, it felt a little more painful.
P.S. The picture is my actual husband, lol.
P.P.S. I also wanted to point out that to add to what could have been a great day, the UPS man came (HOORAY) and I picked up a snake in my yard (FUN!)
