the first disagreement sean and i had
after getting married was about dishes and making the bed.
i think it started about 11:30pm and ended around 2am.
sean vowed never to bring anything up with me when i'm tried ever again.
so in my tired state i was bugged that he would put his dishes in the sink and let them sit there all day, with the oatmeal cement sticking itself to the side of the mug.
it wasn't that the dishes were sitting there all day.
sometimes you're busy and dishes have to sit.
it was that it took 5 times as long to clean them at the end of the day when everything was REALLY caked on from sitting all day.
my solution had always been to just fill the cup, plate, etc with water to soak so clean up was a snap.
he was bugged that the bed was never made.
my argument was that i always made the bed...right before we got in it!
i thought it was silly to use valuable "getting ready time" in the morning to make the bed.
so we made a compromise.
he would soak his dishes, and i would make the bed.
last night i was reminded of our first late night disagreement.
in a good way.
the scout master was home for all of 12 minutes between internship and scouts.
tuesdays are busy in our home.
in those 12 minutes he ate 1 1/2 pieces of pizza (took another 2 pieces with him to scouts), organized some scout materials, hugged the pork loin and i, and was out the door.
the pork loin cried at the door.
it was sad.
after the hustle and bustle of his departure i saw a beautiful thing.
my sink was full of sean's dishes from work, SOAKING.
"i love you" was what i saw in my sink.
good thing i made the bed today;-)
