  • Mood:

being a better wife and getting more touches

This last counseling session was... different. We talked about roles... which always makes me defensive, 'cause I want to be a perfect wife and I just plain am not. I don't always clean the room, make dinner, or even make the bed, despite the fact that Ben works all day while I do whatever. And I know that is terribly irresponsible and ungrateful -- but. I don't want to risk being unappreciated.

So Ben has agreed to be more careful to be appreciative, and I've agreed to be more responsible. I think it took a weight off of his shoulders, 'cause he's been more lighthearted since then... and very tender.

He's also agreed to give more platonic loving touches. That of course covers a multitude of sins.
