I am a very impatient person.
Let me re-phrase that.
I am a very, very impatient person.
Case in point. Shopping for our block party tonight, i knew i had a limited amount of time to get to all the places we needed to go to get most of the stuff for the party.
We ran late for virtually everything. i had to constantly bark orders in order to keep us focused & moving along. by the time we got home , we were both at wits end, dragging in items in a hurry, putting away stuff and setting things in order for the following day.(which will bring its own misery).My husband was setting up the garage and moved a table with stuff on it breaking a dish i loved and had just spent 10 minutes filling with plasticware in a pretty pattern.
I lost it & we got into a huge argument.My impatience was rearing its ugly head all night long.It actually made things more difficult in the end.I got accused, as usual, of complaining about everything and b*tching all the time.What is a woman to do?
In hindsight, i guess if i had been the calm ,cool, hippy chick i aspire to be, maybe all would have fallen into place without much of a hitch.But maybe not. I swear, sometimes i notice the softer i am on everybody, the worse they act towards me(the proverbial DOORMAT theory).
I pray & pray for patience ,but i just seem to get worse. i need some suggestions.
And, no, i am not going to start smoking pot!!
