Ok, so we're have a small falling out between some friends and us. Mostly it's miscommunication, and them saying something but meaning something else. Hubby is trying to figure out a way for all 4 of us to sit down and talk this out, without kids around. We have a 10 year old and a 6 year old. They have a 6 year old, a 5 year old that visits whenever biomom allows it, a 3 year old and a 2 year old.
Talking on the phone with hubby on his way home from work and I do NOT believe what he said to me. At this meeting he wants me to sit there and say nothing while the rest of them talk everything out and try to work things out.
You want me to WHAT??!??!
I'll admit that I have a temper, and often times shoot my mouth off before really thinking about what I'm saying. I don't do sit-off-to-the-side-quietly very well. Yes, my husband has a cooler head and is hard to anger. However, his communications skills aren't as good as he thinks they are. Most of the time I'm more confused than when I started when I ask him to explain something to me. He assumes that others' are able to follow his train of thought, without him verbalizing any of his train of thought. UGH!
So he walked in, emptied out the dish washer, chipping plates in the process, finally took out the trash and has now left again. All without saying one word to me.
Yeah, this is kinda high school drama-ish. I see that. I just can't get over the fact that he had the balls to tell me on the phone that, essentially, he wants me to sit down at this meeting and smile and nod and agree with everything he says, even if I don't. And the kicker is, he's going to ignore me and avoid me until I don't appear to be mad at him anymore. HE doesn't think he did, or said, anything wrong.
Maybe it is time to cut this family loose. Seems like there's more and more drama, the longer we're friends with them.
