A real conversation

Wednesday, August 13, 2008

For the past few weeks, I've felt really disconnected with Shawn. In the last week, we've only talked on the phone a couple times, and it's usually not longer than 10 mintues. Whenever we did talk, I was really grumpy and snappy towards him, which I feel really guilty about! I know he's insanely busy and working crazy hours. He would always call me when he was half asleep, and it would really irritate that he would call me at all. I know that I should be thankful that he called me, but there's no point in talking to him when he can't even keep his eyes open. I apologized for being moody, and yesterday we (finally!) had a real conversation. We talked about an hour, and it really reminded me why I love that guy :)

I love that we laugh and joke about stupid stuff. He makes fun of me for buying jeans that are already ripped. He believes that ripped jeans are "broken" so they should be on clearance. Lol! We have so much fun together, and that's just one of the many reasons that I love him so much!

  1. Hi! I found your blog through some other military girlfriend blogs and just wanted to say hello! I look forward to reading more of your posts!

  2. Oh I hate that disconnected feeling! I'm glad you finally got to have a good conversation with him. It's amazing how 10 minutes of good communication can make all the difference!

  3. Hi Rebecca! I just wanted to say thanks for your comment on my blog. I'll be sure to add you to my daily reading list, I always like finding new blogs. :)

    I know what you mean about the disconnected feeling. My husband Sean and I lived apart for the first five months of our marriage and I'd often get that grouchy, snappy attitude because I just missed him and hated only having contact with him on the phone. Glad you two had a good conversation yesterday!

  4. Oooh, I remember those snappy convo's oh so well. I can be a real biotch for absolutely no reason.

    I'm glad you guys were able to reconnect!

  5. I very much get like that when my husband is away. Its hard sometimes, it gets old having to share your life over the phone instead of together. But it is what it is, he gets it, i get it, and well... we are still married! So I suppose it works itself out.

    A nice real conversation can do wonders cant it!

  6. Hi Rebecca, thanks for the comment. Ugh- disconnect via cell phone is a specialty of the military relationship I think. But it does make the 'good' conversations that much better, doesn't it? I'm glad everything got better.

  7. I'm so glad that you were able to have a great conversation, those are always so wonderful. Thanks for reading my blog, keep writing ;)
