It all started this morning around 5 a.m. Well I guess it actually started last night, well maybe it really started Wednesday or Monday. I am not sure exactly when it started. I seem to get confused when I have a few days off. I am sure some of you know what I mean. When you are off a few days from work Friday can seem like Saturday or on Saturday you might think it is Sunday. It can be so confusing.
Unfortunately I woke up this morning as Lee was leaving for work. I was so thirsty, Lee being the sweet, loving husband he is offered to get me a drink. “Coke please” It seemed to take him forever to come back upstairs. He came back upstairs with water. “I wanted coke”. I was so thirsty though I drank almost the whole glass. He waited standing beside the bed and took my empty glass. I told him “Thank you” and proceeded to curl myself up in all of my soft blankets to drift off back to sleep.
He leans over to kiss me and whispers, “Honey, seems you have taken some cigarettes, you will be back on track tonight” then proceeds to walk out. “Wait, wait, wait, you didn’t give me mine last night, so yes I took a pack”. He let me know he did give me my “allotment”. I don’t remember him giving them to me. See this is where I get confused, kind of like what day it is when I am on vacation or "on holiday". You did not give them to me, I don’t remember you giving them to me. He insists he did, how many, and what time. He also tells me as he is leaving this will be dealt with tonight.
I rush downstairs after him, please tell me he hasn’t taken all of them with him, I can’t just stop cold turkey. I try and explain to him that I am on vacation, “on holiday”, I get confused. I just love the term “on holiday” it sounds so cute. We should say that more often in the south. It sounds so much better than “on vacation”. Ok. Well maybe he did give them to me, we know my memory is not as good as his.
He tells me you have went over your allotment for days, you are not drinking water, you are drinking too many cokes, you are not eating fruit. You have taken advantage since we have had company for a week. This will be dealt with tonight. Wait! I am on holiday! He let me know I do not get a holiday from “our rules” we have made. I try to explain to him, (in my sweetest southern voice) but, we never discussed that, I just assumed I was on vacation, on holiday. You need to be more specific on this kind of stuff, I get confused especially “on holiday”. He didn’t buy it one bit!
I actually do remember him giving them to me, now that I have had my coke and am more awake. I was having so much fun in chat last night, and what was supposed to be a “reset” actually turned out to be much more FUN than I can write on my blog. My “count” can sometimes get away from me.
I know I took advantage and I will admit that (I have come a long way). I will also remind him though, I was respectful of him, and my attitude and demeanor has changed so much that my family took notice and mentioned it several times.
That has to count for something? I think it should count for all the cigarettes and lil misdemeanors I might have made while “on holiday”!
