The first "words"

I guess it is inevitable when you have two people who are hyper and want to be in charge  crammed into a small canned ham.  There's going to be "words".  And tears.

There were storm warnings out, but for the weather...I should have seen that as a sign.  It's cold, windy, gloomy...crowded.

So we headed out to find a solution to our "we can't maneuver around the table" dilemma.   It was in the Target parking lot that Left Brain asked what was wrong and I answered very quickly the standard response...NOTHING.  Then burst into tears.

There was a lovely post on Facebook the other day that says it all.  The speed with which a woman replies "nothing" when asked what is wrong is inversely proportionate to the size of the storm approaching.

But, as always, we talked it out and agreed to try to meet each other half way and work harder at being considerate.  Then we bought the shelves needed for our project, got some lunch and went back home a happily married couple.

Long Live the Queen of Changing Weather


  1. What a nice story but I thought it would include plans for an addition to the Canned Ham ... a nice craft room or TV room?

  2. Unfortunately in life there is so much compromise involved in living with eath other, especially in tiny spaces. At least you are willing to talk it out with each other. A lot of folks can't do that.

    BUT! That is one gorgeous photo of the clouds! Here's hoping the weather gets better so that you can spend more time outdoors. Have a great day, hugs, Edna B.
