Not to be mean, but just stop making noise!


I know this post will get me in trouble...

Drew will be pissed...

It may result in a screaming match/awkward silence...


I may have to remove this post later...



BUT, I'm gonna write it anyway :)
 Those of you who read my schedule change post earlier this month, know how psyched I was that hubby was getting a new job that included working days. I was SO excited to have more time with him, see him every day and have weekends together. Don't get me wrong, I am loving this... BUT (come on, you knew the but was coming). I never realized how much noise my husband makes! Yes I know I'm probably overreacting. But if you work with kids, you know they are loud, all the time. For the 8 or so hours a day that I am at work, I am inundated with noise. Therefore I think it is perfectly reasonable that I would want some peace and quiet when I get home in the afternoon. Just a little time to myself where I can watch t.v. if I want to, play on my computer, workout, play with the dog... and NOT have to hear noise. If the t.v. noise is bugging me, I turn it off. If Zoey is too loud, I stop playing with her... unfortunately my husband does not have an "off" button. 

I know he doesn't mean to be loud, that he probably is trying REALLY hard to not be obnoxious, but he just is. He listens to the t.v. louder than I like it (is 24 too early for hearing problems?) he makes exaggerated yawning noise and clicks his tongue, taps his fingers or just plain wants my attention, and I just don't have the energy patience to deal with it. It just plain bugs me. So of course, today, day 5 of the new schedule is when it just gets to my breaking point, and I snapped at him. I couldn't help it, it was just so aggravating and my head is pounding and...well... I'm currently sitting in our bed while he is downstairs... probably fuming at me... what a way to start our weekend together, and my February vacation.


So hun, if your reading this, I'm really sorry I snapped... I just needed some time to decompress... can we be friends?
