First of all, I want to thank all of you who commented on my Facebook page and sent me private messages regarding my previous post, Unexpected News. I truly thought I was alone in this and that I was disappointing and upsetting people by being so scatterbrained. I have described it to the hubs like this: “I wish the issue was merely that I am juggling too many balls at once and I can’t keep them all in the air. But the issue is that sometimes, I don’t even remember I’m juggling!” Turns out, there are other 40-something moms out there with lots to do, worry about and keep straight and they forget important stuff, too. I know there are others that are able to keep their shit together and I commend and envy you. But I am cutting myself some slack and ensuring that I am updating and consulting my Cozi at least 3 times a day.
We all know that men and women view, feel and think differently. This past weekend, the hubs gave me such a perfect, simple example of this and I had to share. He was in the bedroom watching a cooking competition on TV while I was in the bathroom getting ready. I heard a woman crying on the TV and walked into the bedroom to find out why.
Me: What’s the problem?
The hubs: She’s crying.
Me: Holy crap! And THAT – right there – is the difference between men and women.
The hubs: (chuckles) What?
Me: She has a problem that made her cry. I want to know what made her cry. To you, the problem is that she’s crying. This is brilliant and so simple! I’m putting this on my blog.
The hubs: That’s what I’m here for, babe. To provide you with endless material for your blog.
Happy Monday! 😀
