Stay with me.
It’s not like I’m being deceitful. I (over)share a lot. I write about a lot of things that go on in our lives. Probably more than is reasonable. But some of the ugly? I just don’t want to talk about.
I want to move on and forget about it. I don’t want to write about the ugly cries or the yelling fights or the dirty floors. Because I don’t need reminding. I live it, people.
But when Ryan and I were planting the garden a few weeks ago, we had an ugly tiff. Nothing serious. It basically centered around the spacing of the rows in the garden. I thought it should be measured one way and Ryan thought it should be measured another way.
Yes. It was life-altering stuff. There was a point when I lost my marbles and began to cry and listing every single thing that Ryan has ever done wrong since we met 13 years ago.
(I gunnysack a lot. It’s a really great quality in a wife.)
After we got through the ugly and realized we were both being insane and stupid and crazy, we apologized, laughed, and hugged it out. (I believe strongly in hugging everything out.)
Then, Ryan said, “Are you going to blog about how well this gardening went?”
We both laughed. Because OF COURSE I WASN’T.
But now I am.
Because to make up for the tiff, I decided to surprise Ryan with a little laid-back date night at the barn soon after. We’re both out there so much and it’s usually work, work, work. I figured we could have a little us time together.
So, I dropped off Henry with my mom, picked up a few containers of Breyers Gelato Indulgences at the supermarket and brought along two spoons.
We sat on our newly-completed deck (can’t wait to share this soon), talked about our future and our lives and our dreams, and gorged ourselves on Triple Chocolate and Vanilla Caramel.
I don’t even want to tell you how much we ate. Okay, fine. WE ATE A LOT. I had to unbutton my top button.
Would you believe that it was more romantic than it sounds?
I think I made up for my gunnysacking ways. It was a perfect date night for this crazy, untraditional couple.
Who needs fancy restaurants and silly things like makeup and plates and showers?
For good, for bad and even for ugly.
