Ican'thearyouitis -It's Contagious!
I was standing at the sink getting dishes for the dishwasher when Mr SeaSpray walked in from work. I also had the TV on in the family room and music playing loudly from the living room... opposite ends of the house.
After a quick kiss on the lips and a sort of hug - me just leaning into him because of my wet hands and his grocery filled hands ...he put some things in the refrigerator and then walked into the family room to watch the evening news.
Since my hands were all wet and because I didn't want to have to stop and dry them (well you know ..that's extra work ;), I hollered over the music and TV while simultaneously firmly pointing into the family room ...like I discovered land or something: "Can you get my mug for me?"
"What? A HUG?", asked a perplexed looking Mr SeaSpray.
"No ..my MUG! Can you get my mug I left in there?"
"O-h-h-h ..I was WONDERING why you had to have a hug over there. ??"
We Laughed. :)
So it must've been the Ican'thearyouitis striking again.
Because it was my turn next.
By the end of the afternoon ...my bladder was feeling aching and irritated from the stent and so after kitchen was cleaned up and dinner on ...I decided it would be nice to blog a bit ..off my feet and coffee at my side. And so I did.
But then Mr SeaSpray was wondering about dinner and so I stopped and told him not much longer. But ..then a few minutes after that... he was wondering about the vegetables on the stove. Mr SeaSpray was hungry and he was holding off on a snack because dinner was coming out in 18 minutes. I thought he could see the timer. THEN ..while that set ..I would put the vegetables in the microwave.
Admittedly, I was frustrated because I couldn't hear what else he was saying and I had just wanted to sit down and relax until the timer went off. So ..I got up ...went into the kitchen and I was a little annoyed ...stating that the stent was bothering me today and (Did I say?) that I just wanted to rest a bit.
So as I walked past him and feeling frustrated, I said: "This stent is really BOTHERING my bladder today."
"Take it out."
Then my raised ... in rapid machine gun fire voice spewed out: "NO! I DON'T want this stent OUT! I DON'T want my ureter to CLOSE UP and I DON'T want the surgery NOW!"
"N-o-o-o ..I didn't say take your STENT out! I said when are you taking the DINNER o-u-t?"
I commented ..with a slight chuckle that I had just done the same thing he did earlier with misunderstanding what was said. I think it's funnier now, but was admittedly testy feeling by that point and so I didn't quite appreciate the humor in the moment.
Can I blame peri-menopausal hormones? Or the stent? My bladder? All of it? None of it?
I will apologize in the morning. Mr SeaSpray didn't deserve to have me snap at him like that. It really isn't my norm.
