So sweet!

So, lately the dh and I have been having arguments. But today he called in sick to work so he could help me around the house, because I've been stressed out. He plans on taking tomorrow off as well so I have a bit more of a break.

Yesterday, I nearly burnt down the house because g-pa spilled milk from his potatoes in the oven, and didn't clean it up. So,  I cleaned out the oven, taking nearly 3 hours to scrub, and practically chisel the burnt milk from the bottom.

Dh took care of the baby all morning while I cleaned the kitchen and the bedroom. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed by the heat (nearly 80 here and the heat was still on -_-)  so I laid down while the baby slept, and dh came in and surprised me with a back rub and leg rub!! He hasn't shown initiative on affection in a good while.

The baby woke up and I was about to get her, and he said "No, I got it." WOW! Again, never showed this much initiative to make my day a bit easier. So, while he played with dd, I got all the laundry caught up on, and found the only mower in the garage that works and mowed the lawn.

I have no idea what I did/said to get this change in him, but I'm not complaining. He's the man of my dreams come true today!

 Aww that is sweet. That was very loving and considerate of him.

So... yeah... I found out today he's been hiding the fact that he's been talking to his ex. While I'm not mad that he's talking to her, as she is going through a rough patch, I'm more hurt at the fact that he has to hide it from me.

 so was he feeling guilty & that's why he did all the nice stuff - I'm not in agreement with him talking to her UNLESS he's doing it openly

I called her up today, because he left her number up on the computer screen (he uses google voice to talk to her) and I demanded up front who she was, and why she was talking to him. She claims it's all innocent, so I'm giving them both the benefit of the doubt. Until he shows otherwise, I am going to trust him that he is being faithful to me.

Which, IMO, is the right thing to do. :)

Did he tell you  or did you find out on your own?

I found out on my own. He left the number up on the computer screen, since he uses google voice to text people, and he was asking her if she wanted to hang out at his dad's. I called the number to see who it was, and it turned out to be his ex.
