We had another pool party today, the third this year...not counting the ones we had while attempting to put the liner in!
Anyways, it was a good day. The party was for Billy's oldest who's 15, and he invited some friends...and when you get that many teenagers, things tend to get loud. And it takes someone louder to get their attention...right? That would be me! Yea...I guess the comment was made that I was yelling alot. Oh well...when kids don't listen, I yell. That's really the only time I yell...and usually even then only when I've attempted speaking in a voice that can be heard under normal circumstances.
I guess it's been decided that there are going to be separate birthday parties next year. Heh...that was our original idea for this year! One at our house...one at their mom's.
I did learn one thing though...and I guess I've been guilty of this in past relationships, but I'm much more aware of it now and really make an effort to avoid doing it. I never criticize Canu in public. If there's something I don't agree with or that's getting on my nerves...I bring it up in private. Never in front of the kids...and never ever in front of company. I don't like hearing someone else criticize him...but I bit my toungue this time. Hearing "he's not my problem anymore..." sounds childish...but I didn't say a word. Nope...he's not her problem. He's not my 'problem' either. He's my man. He's my lover and he's my best friend. He's my favorite person to be around, and I would never disrespect him that way in any circumstance. No...he's not perfect, and neither am I. I know I'm not easy to live with, but he treats me with the same respect that I give him. Oh...we joke around, but we never air our disagreements in front of anyone, and we never criticize each other in public...or private for that matter.
I know...sounds too good to be true right? But after knowing each other for almost a year, and living together for almost 6 months...we have yet to have a fight, or even a disagreement that we havent worked out. I don't see this changing. Some people say that opposites attract, and this may be true. But we are just alike in so many ways that there aren't too many things to argue or fuss about.
I would hate to think that if something happened to one of us, that the last thing we said to each other was said in anger. I've lost too many people in my life to take for granted that I'll always have one more chance to say "I love you".
