Working through it

12:30 PM Edit This
After announcing his intentions to fly away for a few weeks, I asked Robin why he wanted to go away for so long. His answer was exactly what I though it would be, he said "Well, you left me for weeks and weeks when you went to Indiana." I asked him if he was still mad about that, he said he was trying not to be grumpy anymore but he was. It didn't seem to matter that Doug was gone right after I got home, he's still only mad at me.

Last night Doug didn't come home again. He had driven to work and I had met him in Seattle to see the Imax of Star Trek so we have two cars down there. After dinner on the drive back home, although we were both tired, Doug pulled over to sleep. I eventually did too but I had the kids need to get them home and out of the carseats and he did not so he didn't come home and I had to get them all into the house, which is just over fifty yards from the cars (Doug's estimate). After the ordeal of getting to the house, the boys were wide awake so we watched a movie, it was movie night, and had a little bonding time. I think we are getting through this, slowly but it feels like progress.

He woke up this morning in a good mood. He has an imaginary bear today. Robin says this bear was mean and grumpy last year but now he's kind and nice because he's not angry anymore. The concept and comprehension of time plays a huge roll in our lives right now.
