As I stood in the kitchen, grumbling to myself and loading the dishwasher, the hubs walked through the doors and knew I was in one of those moods.

Even as he stormed into the kitchen, demanding a hug...I stood there going thru the motions, he nuzzled my neck and said "You smell cranky" - I did not laugh, giggle or even crack a smile...he knew it was going to be one of those days.

Silently he went about helping me, knowing full well when I was ready I would let my anger go. Instead of going off to do the things he needed to do...he chose to spare the kids a meal of mac n cheese and made them real food instead.

As I talked, found the words to help release my frustration...he chilled a bottle of wine and did not say a word...just listened. And when I was finished, he poured me a glass, set dinner on the table and gave me a kiss on the cheek.

By glass #2, I was feeling better and life was back on track...but in the end all I could think was Thank Goodness today is FRIDAY!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Don't you love when they know exactly what you need?

Every once in a while I get really, really mad about something small and Mr. C just lets me yell at him knowing that I'll calm down and apologize later. Sometimes I just need to yell. :)

isn't funny, for as annoying and PITA they can be, that they always JUST know, when we need more than a minute to get ahold of ourselves?

I'm glad that it's the weekend, too!
