I Did It!

I know, I said I was going to do it last night. I really was, but I chickened out again. But, tonight, I did it.

I told DH that I was going to be gone next week.It happened while we were cleaning the kitchen.

I kind of insinuated that I had already  mentioned this trip to him last month. I did, just in a general way with no details. I can get away with this because like most men, he only hears about half of what I say. So I tend to use that to my advantage whenever I can.

"Don't you remember me saying that I had to go to Pennsylvania at the end of the month?" I ask.
His reply? "No, I don't."
"Well, this is an important client so it is a bit longer of a trip.I leave late Monday morning and come back on Friday early afternoon."

Grunt of disgust.

I quickly change the topic to the delicious dessert I have chilling in the fridge. Food is always a good distraction.

I am a bit flabbergasted. I was expecting a bit more of a response.

Don't get me wrong. I would rather have this reaction. I just wasn't expecting it. He does that sometimes, surprises me. I love that about him. After 26 years together, he can still surprise me.

So, my next task is to start on the laundry, pack my bag, go grocery shopping, cook the meals. Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy!


  1. LOL... I know what you mean about men only half listening... My Hubs seems only to hear what he wants to hear.

    Where are you going in Pennsylvania,... that is where I live.

  2. I think it is a male oriented affliction!

    I will be in Wilkes-Barre and possibly Danville. Where are you at?
