Family walk....

The family went for a walk today....didn't go as I had hoped it would...

With hubby and DD's not feeling well all week and with it being so nice outside, it seemed to be the best time for a walk, we could bond, let off some energy and steam, and get fresh air too. Knowing our path would be muddy and snowy I wanted the girls to dress warmly and in their older jackets, Ivy blew a fit because she wanted to wear her new jacket. I got mad cause hubby sides with her and makes me feel like a child....not off to a good start.... So he head out the door and down the road, hubby keeps sighing with inpatients because Anna wants to jump in every puddle, look threw all the holes in the bridge and I keep pointing our funny clumps of snow.... he leaves us behind.... Ivy runs screaming and crying off to find her dad, Anna and I take our time.

They waited oh so not patiently till we caught up then hubby starts quickly walking down the snowy path. Girls can't keep up so he stops every 10 meters to wait, sighing the whole time.... after the 4th time of this I tell him this walk is not to go from point A to point B but to have fun and enjoy nature, He states back that he is outside everyday! I tell him fine go on ahead! He goes never once looking over his shoulder to see how we are fairing, a third of the way along the path I see him across the creek heading for home, I try to wave but he doesn't see....I have no clue why he is so mad at me/us.

45 mins later the girls and I arrive home and Hubby is no where in the house....I find him a few mins later locked in his work shop. He comes in the house and lays down in bed for a nap.....I'm so frustrated at him! He wouldn't even tell me why he is upset, which makes me even more Frustrated and mad!

Now he sleeps, the girls are sacked out on the sofa watching TV, I went out for another walk to get some groceries and movies and now I'm making dinner.....he sleeps! what a great weekend!

Sorry for the rant!

When the kids were small we had so many outtings turn out chaotic-- but as the kids got older it became easier. As far as husband's being mad and not saying why-- after 20 years we've almost gotten past that:) I just learned to ask "What the heck is wrong?".

I love walking, and you are right, it's not to get from point a to b, but to enjoy what nature has to offer us...

Steve and I have never seemed to go through that not telling stage, I think we share way to much, LOL... I hope all is well now...
