Isn't it about that time of the month when I tell you that I am almost on my period?
Because I am almost on my period.
And due to that, McKay and I had a talk in the kitchen tonight about how important it is to still be nice to someone who is annoyed with you for no reason. The person who needs to be nice is McKay. The annoyed person is me. First of all, let me push my hormones aside and say that I heart McKay. He played with Jax on his break today and let me sit upstairs and eat a chocolate muffin. Then he did all the dishes after dinner but he did one tiny thing that bugged me just a little tiny bit. He flipped a pot upside down on the counter to dry- so when I picked it up to put it away, water spewed all over the floor and on onto me. I now welcome back the hormones. That water made me very annoyed and how inconvenient it was to be forced to grab a towel and dry the entire thing before bending down to shove it into my tiny pantry, which is a struggle in itself.
So my poor, innocent husband came downstairs to make me popcorn and I tried my very hardest to be nice, but it's hard, you know, when you're in your special time. So I don't remember what happened next, but all I know is that there was some escalation and then a talk about how I need romance when I am feeling like this and to pretend like we are dating again.
So then we read a little and we said our family prayer and we put Jax to bed and we sat on the couch opposite-each other. And we each tapped each other three times (which means I love you). And then I did another tapping (hard to explain) that means "i'm sorry." And then he tapped three times again.
And then he sat up and grabbed my face in both of his hands and said "Ali, you are the most perfect girl in the world to me. No matter what, nothing could make me love you any less. In fact, I love you more right this second than I ever have before. Now let's cuddle and cry together and watch Real Housewives."
I am just kidding.
This is what then happened:
