communication

Neil: Paige, i'm so excited that...
(my heart starts pounding - he's going to acknowledge all my hard work in finishing my book. He's going to tell me how proud he is that i finished and ask if he can read it now... )
Neil:... that you said you're going to clean the house this afternoon!!
He smiles proudly and encouragingly at me and i burst out laughing.
He has no idea what's so funny.
But i got the dang house clean.

heehee - he's *so* supportive in his ways though - He would have felt horrible if he knew what i was thinking... it's just funny 'cause he couldn't have known what i was thinking & he had the most encouraging look on his face like, "i'm *so* pleased with your for cleaning the house..." that i *had* to laugh :)
marriage is funny.
