Wow! For a change, my thread actually took a while to lock. I don't know if that is good or bad!
So, I last heard from DH on Saturday. He called at 12:15am (after (am his time) and we finally talked about D9. I told him what the doc proposed for treatment options and when we would be starting them, etc, etc.
He asked questions about family, we discussed some things about his 4-wheeler, and I am thinking I shocked him with some of the stuff I told him. I am a collector. I do not like to get rid of things. I know it is tied to being a military brat and moving every 2-3 years. My mom and dad never let us hold onto a bunch of stuff.
Well, in the past couple of weeks, I have decided that the clutter HAS TO GO!! I started with the kids' voluminous pile of toys that were overwhelming me. they would pull everything out and it would take me forever to clean it up and put it all back away. They did not help and I would get frustrated and start yelling. Last week, I stopped yelling and started grabbing boxes and trash bags instead. The end result was that the back of my Durango, with the 3rd seat down, was filled with donations to my church. I mentioned this to H and I could literally hear the shock in his voice. He asked why I was doing it. Told him I was scaling down and simplifying my life, so I could have the time to do the things I want to do.
Well, the call was about 45 minutes and I went to sleep right after. When I woke up later Sat. morning, I had two emails from him. The first asked about the new payment amount for the car insurance, the second said he found it. I figured that neither needed to be addressed, then.
That was the last I heard from him until this morning.
I got this email:
I signed up for another United Through Reading session for the kids, on the 11th. I’m hoping they’ll have it in time for the holidays. How’s everyone doing? When is D9 starting her medication and treatment? I’ll talk to you later.
I already told him when her treatment is to start. If there was a problem with the kids--a major one--I would let him know that, too.
So, do I stay with no response, or answer it? If I answer it, what should I write?
