...But I'm Feeling Much Better Now!

Okay, sometimes we have to go through the crap to get to the good stuff. The wife and I were able to talk things through. She thinks that I just tend to obsess about letting her down, and I admit, that is a hang up of mine. I hate to think that she's disappointed in me about anything. Always have been. I am very blessed that tonight we had some tense moments talking things through, but didn't get into a yelling match. I am a little bugged that she tried to lay everything at my feet, but she at least admitted to doing some over-reacting herself this morning. So that's nice.

I love my wife very much. And when she smiles at me, when I know she means it, it's the most beautiful thing in the world.

She wants me to take more charge of things. I mentioned to her that I usually don't get a chance to assert myself because she's already taken the reins in most things. It's a kind of Catch-22: I feel like she tries to control and mother me, and she feels like I'm forcing the authority onto her when she would rather I be in charge.

We're working on it.
