I am not a social creature by nature. If it were up to me, we would stay home every weekend. In our pajamas. With no plans.
However, I realize that this is not what everyone else in my family likes to do. My husband likes to see his friends and family as often as possible.
So in the spirit of The Melissa Gorga Experiment and treating my husband like a king, I went along with everything he wanted to do on Sunday.
I let him work on his Jeep all morning while I took care of the baby. I even let him have the last meatball sandwich for lunch. That was difficult.
My two-year-old was invited to a birthday party that fell during her nap time. My husband thought she should go to the party anyway- so I relented.
He took her to the party and I ended up staying home with the baby, who fell asleep right before we had to leave.
Then, we were invited to my sister’s house for an early dinner. (Coincidentally, my sister happens to be dating one of my husband’s best friends.)
Instead of declining the invitation since we had already had such a busy weekend, I decided that we should go.
Melissa Gorga says that Sunday is family time, and the “Sunday dinner is a great Italian tradition.”
We didn’t have an Italian feast, but it still was yummy- pot roast and pumpkin cake. My husband got to talk about cars with his buddy, and my kids got to visit with Aunt Mel.
After we got everyone to bed, my husband and I snuggled up under the down comforter in our room to watch The Walking Dead. I fell asleep halfway through, which was probably a blessing for my husband. Ordinarily, I am full of questions after each episode.
So instead of asking “What did you think of that episode? Who do you think is going to die next? How will Daryl get the antibiotics?!”, my husband was able to drift off peacefully.
Don’t worry, honey, I finished watching the show and all my questions will be waiting for you when you get home. See ya later!
