Craptastic Afternoon

I admit it, craptastic is probably not even a word (I am fairly certain it is not, yet it should be), but I had a huge argument with my husband over the upcoming trip. We normally do not argue, well not at this magnitude. In an overly mature fashion, I went to the bedroom and cried myself to sleep. Your read correctly, I threw maturity out the window and consoled myself with my ever faithful cat and tissues. I will not admit just how long I slept, it is about as embarrassing as the argument itself.

The bad part is I will be up most of the night. My plan? I am going to console myself with Thai food and traveling around the blogosphere to visit all my friends and to meet new bloggy friends. My cat will be by my side the entire time. Did I mention how wonderful she is?

i'm sorry you're blue about the argument, but glad you have your cat. cheer up. it will get better (and you'll probably get your way in the end anyway)!

Men are weird about expressing what they are 'actually' thinking/feeling about the situation (and what you say is probably mis-interpreted occasionally)......and your cat will always understand.......oh yeah, and your bloggy friends will, too. Also, Craptastic is a very valid way to feel......the 'tastic' puts a positive spin on it, right?!
I wonder if anybody has THAT blog name?! CRAPTASTIC is even fun to type.....hmmmmm, now I am thinking......something like Craptastic Moments in Motherhood and Wifery(is that a word!?)......I think we have a book.....ok, now I'm rambling. Anyways, feel better. "This, too, shall pass."

I have to disagree with Leane. I can speak from a mans point of view and its not that men are weird (well some of us are) but that we as men communicate in a different way thats all.
Men talk in a more direct manner. Straight to the point if you will, whereas ladies on the other hand speak in riddles. Not always saying exactly what they should say but of course expecting us to understand what they are saying anyway. We arent mind readers, and this leaves us looking kinda dumb in the view of our ladies because we arent always able to read minds. However we are expected to do so.
Now of course without trying to sound to analytical, lol this argument may not have had anything to do with communication, but just a basic disagreement in thought processes or philosophy on the trip itself. In the event of this, I believe that disagreements are healthy. When Carey disagrees with me, I always stop before saying anything and think about how it would be to do things her way, as well as why she would feel it to be of benefit. Usually after I process it I will be more inclined to accept her argument. Well not usually, :)jk but listening to her helps our disagreements turn into constructive resolutions instead of escalating into full blown arguments. Of course those arent always bad either because there is always a making up period, ok I digress. Anyway, try not to feel to down. Know that he loves you very much, and tell him that I said he needs to listen to you better and never leave you to seek comfort with your kitty. :) Im just gonna stop now.

Always Here For Ya,

Tim

For what it's worth, my husband and I always fight before a trip. And we are traveling next weekend, so expect the fur to fly, lol.

That is the worst feeling when you have those kinds of arguments! I have totally been there though with the crying and going to sleep!! I also have some great cats.. but a really awesome Corgi!

I hope all is well soon.. and.. send some Thai food this way!

Naomi said...

I hope you two settle your differences soon. I know how horrible arguments like that make everyone feel. But I'm glad your kitty is such a good confidante and that you'll get some Thai food. Geez, I would pick a fight with Bob if I thought I could get some pad thai out of it...

Chris said...

Sorry to hear about your arguement. I know how bad it makes me feel when hubs and I argue. We don't have it too often but when we do come to blows we are both to stubborn to give in and it does get ugly. Hope you have a better day tomorrow.
By the way I think craptastic is a word, in fact it is one of my favorite words. I use it all the time.

:( Ugh arguing and the aftermath of arguing is the worst feeling. I do the same though after a big argument {which is rare also}, straight to the bedroom. Grab Athena and bawl...

Hope you settle it and make up soon!!

Rae Ann said...

I envy you the cat love! I have a sweet dog here on the couch with me, but it just isn' the same.

Sorry to hear you and the hubs had a fight. My husband and I rarely argue, but when we do I feel physically bad for hours afterward. Feel better!

pam said...

Sorry about the argument. I know your sweet cat will keep you company late into the night.

I hope things are better tomorrow.

Kathleen said...

Oh Jennifer, I hope you're feeling better. Sometimes it takes a blow up to make things better...weird, yes. I think you were really arguing about the difference between "but" and "however" and he was being the but-head. Ha ha, get it?

I hope you're enjoying your evening of blogging and Thai food (I just made Pad Thai for lunch yesterday).

These things have a way of working themselves out. Fighting is never fun and I tend to go to sleep to escape as well. Thank goodness for your kitty's comfort.

Erin said...

Craptastic is most definitely a word. I use it all the time, especially to describe how my day went. :-) I hope things look better in the morning.

namaste said...

For sure, craptastic has to be a word.... it must be a word.... a fabulous, descriptive word at that. We must embrace it!

I'm sending you a big hug. I've done the same thing; the fight, the crying into my pillow and pets until falling asleep.... you're not alone. It happens.

Things will be ok. Promise.

Girrrrl. I feel your frustration. My hubby and I had a stupid, ugly argument. I let him have it! By spending a pretty penny on a new handbag. LOL Usually though, I will do what you did. Nothing like a wonderful kitty cat!
