One of my sisters lives in another state. Another of my sisters lives in the same state I do, but about ninety miles from me. My sister from another state was visiting my sister who lives ninety miles from me. They invited me to come visit over the week-end, too.
On Friday, I asked my husband if he minded if I went to see my sisters for a couple of days. He said, I don’t mind. Stay all week if you want to.
I think there was a little bit of sarcasm in that. I don’t think he liked it that I was going to visit my sisters.
I went and I had a great time. Saturday night, late Saturday night, after many hours of watching chick flicks and eating ice-cream with my sisters and a little bit of time drinking some home-made beer with my brothers-in-law, I finally crawled into bed. Well, I crawled into my sleeping bag on the floor of my brother-in-law’s office. That was fine, though. I was blissfully all by myself and woke up this morning very refreshed and relaxed.
What I started to tell you was that before I went to sleep, I checked my cell phone. My husband had sent me several texts. Even now I haven’t opened them, but I think they are a bunch of pictures of his nieces that were visiting his parents.
This happens very often when I go to visit my brother or my sister. He sends me a ton of texts. He can’t just let me enjoy my time with my siblings without intruding.
When I got home this evening, he was making dinner. I had already eaten plenty of ice-cream (more chick-flicks) and pizza at my sister’s house, so I didn’t need any dinner. It smelled like he was boiling turkey.
Now, let me set this up for you. I have some turkey in the freezer left from Thanksgiving. Late last week he wanted to warm up some. I told him that I wanted to make it into something, like turkey chili or turkey enchiladas. I asked him not to use it.
Well, I guess my wishes really don’t matter. He was making turkey noodle soup. At first I was really upset. It hurt that he didn’t consider that I had asked him not to use the turkey. Then I felt myself just kind of shutting down. Whatever. Just whatever.
Evidently it seems he wasn’t happy at all that I went to see my sisters.
