YAY!!!

I'm so glad you had the kind of night you've been missing, Marta.

I hope that can happen for me in my relationship too someday.


When we open to this moment and don't judge it or try to change it, even when we're suffering and wish it were otherwise, we tap into the spaciousness of mind that allows us to move forward skillfully, with discernment and joy. -- Sharon Salzberg

So I handed out the bags to the guys to give the gals and I looked at my husband and said, "I don't know where mine is." ( He had ordered mine on his own as a surprise, but then didn't realize I was ordering them..long story but he had mine.) He left the room and came back with a grill part and tried to hand it to me with great laughter, including my own. Later we were sharing stories of some of the practical jokes we've played on each other over the years.. It is that twinkle in his eye teasing that I miss. His teasing is NOT mean or tinged with sarcasm ( you know the kind of joking I'm talking about) It is good natured, sweet teasing. I remember when I met his grandparents and I thought, "Ah.. this is where he gets it from." because they had the same kind of sweet teasing relationship and he loved giving her a hard time.

THAT is what I really miss. Last night was a lot of fun.


That is awesome. Now be sure and tell him very directly that you loved the evening and that you need more of that.

Glad you got some of what you were needing. I agree with SW. Make sure hubby hears out loud from you that you very much enjoyed last night and would like more of that. Maybe you should have other couples over more frequently? Maybe it is easier for your H to let that side of himself out in front of a group rather than just one on one?


Solutions? There are none. There are decisions.

Oh, yes. Appreciation and admiration are as addictive as crack to most men (and, let's be honest, most women). We love to be appreciated and admired!
