Some people wonder is marriage worth it?
Why would you commit to a lifetime with one person?
Well those people were never married to me.
In general I am an agreeable person,
and usually happy.
However to be married to someone who is always happy,
would be a rather dull affair,
so to ensure our life is never boring,
on occasions I get mad.
It is here my husband and I show our differences.
I am sure those of you who read this can testify,
that there are different ways to argue.
Some of us roar and shout,
others simmer silently for days.
I am a ‘roar and shouter’.
I go from “normal” to “boiling” in a matter of moments.
My husband is a very laid back type,
so on the whole, I do not get a lot of opportunity to boil over.
However yesterday we had a row.
It was over a life changing event.
Something so very important that I boiled over,
and my husband reacted.
I know I shouldn’t expose family secrets on this blog,
but I will let you in on this one.
It was about cleaning the barbecue properly.
If the truth be known the real reason for our row,
was the fact that the night before,
we had enjoyed a fantastic night in a friends house,
and had not returned home until 4am!
Both of us were how you might say,
a little bit tired.
Anyway I flipped out.
My usual method of anger is to roar and shout,
and throw in as many “feck” “fu*k” and whatever else words I can remember.
My husband never ever curses so each word is used by me for maximum effect.
Yesterday as usual having exploded,
I then left the room to cool off.
This might have involved door banging,
but due to the red mist in front of my eyes I cannot fully remember.
The cooling off process was as quick as the heating up.
So within a short period of time,
I was feeling relaxed and had moved on.
Then I heard my husband shout,
“I’m going for a cycle, I’ll make my own dinner”.
If I were to tell you he said this in a tone,
that you could not class as “loving”, “friendly” or “cheerful”
I think you would know what I mean.
After he left the kids arrived into me.
This is one of the many negative reasons for having children.
As they grow up they form opinions,
and then insist on sharing them with you.
Anyway they came in and agreed collectively,
that in their words, I was “so mean to Dad”.
They re enacted the row and told me he was only trying to help.
Then one of them said,
“and now the poor fella has to go on a cycle to calm down”.
I started to laugh.
I suddenly realized why my husband is so fit.
When I get mad I explode and sit in a room alone.
He on the other hand leaves the house,
and goes for a walk, swim or cycle.
Funny thing is he seems to be doing any or all the above,
on a regular basis every week.
So now that I think about it,
it is about time for him to say “Thank you”.
Without me he would be pounds heavier!
There is no denying it.
I really am a great wife.
He is so lucky to have me!

hehehe lets hope he NEVER EVER reads this post…….
Lol. He already did! No comment on what he said, although he did laugh out loud.
was that before or after he again climbed on the bike!!!!! heeheehee
Ha ha ha! 🙂
Love it….these men have no idea how lucky they are to have us….so does he know how to clean a BBQ properly? Lol 😉
I knew people would think that but it was actually the other way round, I cleaned it and he did it again! I must admit he did a better job, but I was in one very tetchy mood! 🙂
Lol…so sorry! I wouldn’t dream of bothering with anything man zone-ish…but if I had and my hubby didn’t appreciate my efforts, he would for sure be fit as a fiddle, cycling his days away! Lance Armstrong would need to watch out!
And don’t forget the late night! 🙂
Totally forgivable IMHO! When we are tired or out late we pay for it….glad you are one of those fabulous people that can see the humor and are our children soooo great in keeping justice in the house! Lol 😉
Omg..I am rolling on the floor! I am a “simmer” kind of person who only blows up at the most important issues, such as “Do you really have to throw your clothes on the floor with a basket two inches away?” But, when I blow up…it’s not pretty!
This was a great post…thanks for the laugh…I really needed it!
I’m glad you liked it. I laughed away while I was writing it, although laughing at my own posts is a bit sad!
Are you kidding me? I love laughing at my posts since I know that someone will get the same laughs out of it! Great job!
I enjoyed reading this so much I read it twice!! If I read some parts to my boyfriend he would truly think I was writing about myself!
Great post and you had me laughing the entire way! 🙂
P.s my boyfriend is very fit as well, I think he has me to thank too 😉
Lol. So glad you enjoyed it. I hope like my husband your boyfriend can appreciate all you do for him! Such selflessness. 🙂
He does 🙂 sometimes without realizing it!
HA! Before I finished reading I was already thinking he is lucky to have to you to keep him so motivated to be healthy!!! You are a good wife, indeed!
🙂 Some day he will appreciate all I bring to this marriage!
Some day! 😉
Very good view point:)….. You DEFINATELY earn a thank you and maybe an apology somewhere in there:) LOL.
Thanks. I appear to have a lot of support from women!
That puts a positive spin on things.
I used to go for long walks 😆
We are cheap personal trainers. It’s a gift some of us women possess. 🙂
what a wonderful post, and he is quite lucky to have you as his boot camp motivator. )
I will pass your comment onto him. It might spur him to jump back on his bike though! 🙂
Lol! That is certainly a positive take on the situation 🙂
I love your logic. Train up as a lawyer. Now!
PS. I simmer for a long time, until he blows up. Then I sulk and he still has no idea why for days afterwards. Maybe I should change tactics, I’d end up with Mr Muscle 🙂
Ha ha.How bad! A friend of mine is one of very few who know about my blog here. Yesterday herself and her husband saw my husband running up the road and they burst out laughing saying to each other, “Oh tric must have upset him again!”. This is a post I might find hard for people to forget.
Tric, this is absolutely hilarious!! My husband and I both laughed over your story. Too bad I gave up shouting. He’d probably be in much better health! 🙂
Ha ha. Yes it has its perks! 🙂
very funny, full of bubbling personality brightly put. the thing about blogs that bugs me is this comment codology, this afterwards of anybody. the whole pleasure im finding is in the person’s original writing. what ‘us as a public’ clomp in afterwards doesn’t add to the art of it, not in my book. basically, if a blog writer is a good writer, it makes no addition what we an audience pip in there as our afterwards piece. and then the poor writers comments on our afterwards piece. all we are is a bravo on the back.
Haha. I disagree. I love to get comments. Because even though I do write because I want to write, I love that anyone reads my posts and I really enjoy what they have to say.
I am glad you went against what you thought and did actually comment otherwise you would just be a “like” or a statistic.
Then again the Good people like us were certainly born to be Punished.
