I thought I spoke Husband, but apparently not.

Don called prior to leaving work. "What do you want to do tonight?" Hmmm. Friday night is date night. We go out to Yesterday's for dinner and one of Peg's astoundingly brilliant desserts. If I'm asked what I want to do, I'm assuming that the normal plan of action has been scrapped. Thus my response: "Uh... I don't know."

To which Don replied, "Decide by the time I get home. I've had a rough day. I don't want to make any decisions."

Hmmmmm, thought I, that was Don's way of saying 'I don't want to go out per usual, but I'm not going to make that call.' So, I made dinner (sauteed pork chops with a red wine dijon sauce, mashed cauliflower and steamed snow peas (WW chocolate mousse for dessert)).

Don walked in the door round about 8:30. He could not help but notice that I was cooking. "Oh," said he. "I thought we were going out."


He then, after I pointed out that he'd indicated some aversion to our normal routine, noted "I can't help it if you read so much into that."


I yield.

Love him so very much, but I really have no idea whatthefrell.
I feel: confusedconfused

Dan and I go through this all the time and I imagine it will only get worse once we're living together.

For example since before we booked our photographer I was saying that I wanted to take All the wedding party shots before the ceremony so we can relax a little an enjoy the cocktail hour. Friends just did this and I think it made things go much smoother. More time for playful shots.
About a month ago he looked at me and said "Well you don't mean with us together, right?"

What part of ALL didn't he understand?

I get that. It's just that there weren't, in theory any decisions to make. Ah, well.

If you don't read into what they are saying, they tell us to 'read between the lines'...if we do 'read between the lines', we are 'reading too far into it'.

I want their handbook.
