Ugh - just lost a bunch of things I typed.
Bridget, I don't know how you deal with it. He just doesn't seem to get that an apology doesn't mean "don't be mad at me."
I was starting to say that I had a little falling out with DH a week or so ago over something stupid - don't really remember what but I think he was yelling about something dumb for no apparent reason. Later in the car he apologized and I just sat there, not knowing how to respond. I didn't want to say "It's okay" because it wasn't - or "I understand" because I didn't - or "I'm sorry" because I really don't think what he did was justified and I don't feel I had a role in it. And I don't nag so it's not my style to say something like "Don't do it again." So I sat there wondering what to say and ended up taking so long that he got annoyed again that I didn't say anything. I can't win.
About the dog food comment, Suja, it wasn't so much that he didn't finish as that he didn't want to eat his dry food and was hoping for wet food. We started with canned and have been transitioning over to dry food which is new to him and he doesn't really like it. At $3/can and a can a day for the premium brands, though, he's going to have to learn to like the dry. Any suggestions for getting him to like it more?
My head is just spinning about the boy scouts stuff. It amazes and angers me that so many women will believe their husbands over their children and it seems like this day and age, women should know better than to disregard their kids. DH has an acquaintance that is apparently dealing with her daughter accusing step-dad of raping her and the woman is standing by her husband over her teenager, which just blows my mind. DH is at the point of cutting off contact with her (she's an old co-worker on his fb page).
