Danny and I had this HUGE fight/conversation thing on Wednesday and I've been really upset/confused about that. I think I've finally had the time to work through it and now I'm okay. I really frustrated with him because now that I'm working, I rely on him to help out around the house and get shit done with the kids and blahblah, and I really felt like he just wasn't getting anything done at all. Or like I would ask him if he could do me a favor and wash my work shirts (I only have 2) and he would say that he would. So I'd be counting on him to get that done and wouldn't worry about it myself...then 20 minutes before I have to leave for work, I find out that he forgot to wash them or MAYBE he did wash them, but then left them in the washer. Or I would spend me whole day off cleaning the house and then 2 days into him and the kids being home, everything is just shit and awful. Through the week, he's home a lot more than I am so if everything gets all messy and crazy then it's really because he's not cleaning up after himself and the kids. And it really makes me crazy when he does something half-assed so that I either have to finish whatever it is or do the whole thing over myself. I would rather him do nothing at all than to do it badly so that I have to do the whole thing over again. ANNOYING.
But so anyway, we had this huge blow-up fight over the whole thing and I cried and he was really frustrated at me and blahblah, but after it was all over, we both felt a lot better and I'm trying to be a partner to him.
This whole entry has been a series of run on sentences and random thoughts. C'est la vie.
We have have done very little Christmas shopping and I'm slightly freaking out about that. Typically, we would be finished shopping within the first couple of weeks of December, but with me being unemployed this year and some unexpected expenses, it just didn't work out. We're waiting on the pay check that Danny gets on the 23rd to do all of our Christmas shopping. Two days before Christmas. That's stressful, but I guess we'll manage. My mom gave us the money to buy both kids their own tablets so that's done. My dad paid for an Imaginext Batcave for Evan (annoying story where I spend most of my Swagbucks that I'd been saving, was short by $12, Dad paid the $12 and now considers the Batcave HIS present for Evan even though I paid like $30 of it. Annoying but whatever) and he's planning on getting Emily this Frozen dollhouse thingy that he saw at Walmart. Danny and I will probably buy Evan a few Imaginext Batman things and then get Emily something doll-related because that's what she is really into right now. It'll be a rather lean Christmas this year, but that's absolutely OKAY.
We had a store meeting this morning at work at 7:30am. I was very unhappy about it being so early because I had to leave my house at 6:30am in order to get there on time. Inconvenient. Anyway, while the meeting was going on, they exchanged their gifts for Secret Santa. I started working there after they'd already drew names so I wasn't expecting to get anything, but Jodi (the boss) bought me a wine glass that says "Wine Time" and has a lid/straw things. It's pretty cute. It was just really nice that she did that because I wasn't expecting it at all.
Danny and my dad have started this whole big idea/project thing where Danny and I ~might~ be building a house in a few years. My dad is buying the 5 acre lot to the north of his lot, so he wants us to build our house on the lot to the north. It's a really exciting idea, but still kind of in the planning/thinking stage. I think Danny and I are going to sit down with a notebook and start budgeting the whole idea out.
I guess I should go be product or something.
