Are they any phrases that your significant other uses that drive you batshit?
There is only one (yes I’m lucky) that Dave uses that not only drove me batshit, but we actually had words over. That phrase is: “don’t worry about it.” Four simple words, right? Might not cause you to blink an eye. But…OMG! If you want to stir up my red headed temper, go ahead…say those words to me.
The funniest thing is…I have no idea WHY it drives me crazy! Maybe because when he used to (get that? “used to”) use those words it would be when I was on him about his smoking…or his driving…or some other health related issue (and if you ever saw his driving you’d KNOW it was a health related issue LMAO).
Speaking of health related issues, we agree last year that once I lost 30 pounds he’d quit smoking. I stayed with WW until June or so (even going to weigh in on vacations down the cape, in CT and in NYC). Then…I fell off the bandwagon. Why? I don’t know. Gained back everything I lost, too. damnitalltohell
The beginning of this year, I decided to weigh myself each Monday on the WW scale here at work. Up and down, up and down, up and down until I decided to go back on WW on 3/26/12. Since then, I have consistently lost (except the 4/16 weigh in…I had Popeye’s twice when we were in DC. But I did learn from that. I learned that I don’t have to have two pieces of Popeye’s and a whole biscuit…that I can have one piece and half a biscuit and enjoy it more, perhaps, than I would two!).
I’m almost a third of the way to my 30 pound loss, so Dave better get ready!
