This is where it got tough for me. I had a hard time with this one, because while I was able to not say mean things back, it is hard for me to not show my frustration when she does something that irritates me. I try not to, but it is hard. I vacuumed the house for her yesterday, because she was tired from working, and instead of being grateful for that, she said, "I thought you were going to CLEAN the house, not just vacuum it." I had a VERY hard time not snapping back, but I didn't. I did however show that I was irritated. I responded with, "Ok, I'll clean it tomorrow...when I get home from work." That was yesterday, and I know that she's going out with a friend today while I'm working, so that is irritating to me that I am going to work, coming home, cleaning the house and she is out spending time hanging out with a friend. That does not sit well with me.
But...as far as what I need to work on in my schedule...I need to work on spending less time surfing the internet, because I tend to get caught up doing things I know I shouldn't do. I don't WANT to do them, but it's like Paul said, "The things that I want to do, I don't, and the things that I don't want to do, that is what I do." (My paraphrase, but you get the idea.) I definitely need to spend less time surfing the internet, and take that time instead and do something productive, like get our house ready to sell, because it is on the market. Thanks for reading. (And if you've been following closely, yes, I'm 2 days behind, because I got slowed up on this one, and it took me 3 days to do it.)
