"Your mood swings are giving me whiplash." -Bella in Twilight
Usually my husband gives me whiplash. I never know what mood he is going to be in and I can't predict the triggers for his hissy fits. Today, however, it was my turn to give him whiplash.
I woke up depressed about our marriage. I read too many web sites about how to figure out if your marriage is going under. Of course I figured I was doomed and spent the night agonizing over it. I lost sleep over it. Woke up cranky and tired and silent. Then I went to my chiropractor whom I haven't seen for about three weeks. He adjusted all sorts of stuff in my neck and back and then did this weird energy clearing thing. I immediately started to feel better. We were laughing and joking around. I went home in a much better mood. Then of course came my afternoon crash and I slept through the show Mum and I were watching on TV. When I woke up I was all better (mentally anyway). Woohoo! Sunny skies are here again! Life is good! Things will be okay!
When I tucked my husband in this evening he commented on this transformation. He said he can't handle me going through four seasons in one day. It was all I could do not to laugh at him. So I smiled, kissed him goodnight and tucked the blanket under his toes. We'll make it. It might take a bit of work but no one ever said marriage would be easy. He is a good guy and he is worth the effort.
