The week had gone pretty well. Me texting him last week and asking for it went very well. He followed through that evening as promised. The only thing that I could complain about... He waited until last night to follow-up with more.
Apparently I'm needy and feel like I need maintenance or reaffirmation, whatever you want to call it way more often that most people. (Or so I would assume). I'm not quite sure he picks up on it as much as I feel it, but he really is trying.
I don't think I need it every single day. I don't think that's the case at all. Maybe every other. Or every every other, lol. I think my brain starts to go bananas an think that he doesn't care and that I'm not a priority when he doesn't. Which is absolutely ridiculous, I'm completely aware. Still I feel it.
We are on a mini-vacation right now with our kids and some other family members. So, last night, I got a shower (alone: sad face) and we talked for a minute before I said I was heading to bed. He followed me, but just went about tucking me in. We weren't on super-great terms. It had been a long day and I was aggravated over things that really didn't matter.
He pulled the sheet up and I just kind of stared at him. I honestly think (know?) he was trying to figure out whether or not to attempt a spanking. He stood there for a minute before finally picking up the hairbrush. He tapped it against his palm and said I want to use this tonight. I'm really tired and it's really late. Yeah, I know. But we won't have the opportunity over the next few days. I won't drag it out and I think we need it. We are going to leave this house in a good place.
I wrote that two days ago. I didn't get to finish it after getting the kids in bed and ending up sleeping in a kid-sized bed with little man, lol. I'm not even sure where I was going with this post... But I'm going to go ahead and publish it.
We did have a really great mini-vacation. There was no fighting or being aggravated like there generally is. I think our first trip away practicing ttwd was a success :)
