So I am driving home from work and I call my wife(because in the A, you can do that) like I do everyday and say, “I am almost home do you need me to pick up anything?'(good husbands do that so they don’t have to get that crazy look on their face when they find out they need to go back out and pick up something for dinner) On this day she says, “No but I was able to finish daughter #2’s hair!” To which I replied, “Great.” My wife then told me it took her 2 hours. Then I took the opportunity to tell her how I was going to take all of my daughters(well 3 of the 4) to get their hair done. She said, “OK.” I told her I loved her and she told me the same…because we NEVER hang up the phone without saying it…and then we hung up. I thought for a second and felt something was not right…just felt funny when I hung up so I thought to myself. Self….When you get home ask your wife if everything is okay. You can say that you felt a little funny when we got off then phone.
But I said, NOPE…do it now!
I called her back and told her I loved her A VERY LARGE AMOUNT!! I also told her how proud I was of her for being able to fit 3 DIVA’s hair appointments into her busy, homeschooling 3 different grade levels, breastfeeding a 9 month old and chasing her as well, and dealing with a husband who likes a clean house but wont pay for a maid SCHEDULE. I explained that there was some thick air when we hung up and I wanted to have CLEAR COMMUNICATION. I felt like when she told me about her successful appointment with Logan’s hair…you remember the 2 hour one….that I followed it up with how I was going to take everyone to the salon. Because when I thought about it…she could have taken it the wrong way and took my response to say…”I really don’t like how you do hair and when I get some money I am going to get it done RIGHT!”
Because that was NOT the case I called back and made sure we were CLEAR!…AND SURE ENOUGH…SHE TOOK IT THE OTHER WAY!!
SOOOOO I am glad I called so she only had to deal with the thoughts in her head for about 2 minutes.
And the funny thing about all this is I like my daughters hair NOT DONE AT ALL! I LIKE IT WILD STYLE!!
Until next time
